Zirconium Implant Placement, Soft Tissue Graft and Transitional Prosthesis in the Esthetic Zone - Part 1 of 2

Description:
This video presentation will highlight the utilization of a One-Piece Zirconium Implant placed into a previously grafted anterior site in combination with a connective tissue graft to maximize the esthetic result. The utilization of zirconium instruments and drills from Z Systems will be highlighted as well as the harvest and suturing of autogenous connective tissue. Proper fabrication of a temporary non-loaded transitional appliance will also be described in a step by step manner utilizing an Essix Retainer from Raintree and denture teeth.

Questions & Comments

Mansour; That is a fair question. Zirconium implants do not have the same history that titanium implants have but they are FDA approved and have shown similar success of osseointegration to that of titanium implants. The BIG question is really how the crestal bone will hold up over many years. So far so good.
thanks for the post
Dr. Salama

hi Dr.salama and thanks a lot for sharing but my question is,how do you evaluate zirconium implants?since we are working since many years with titanium implants and we have seen the response in long therm.thanks again.

Maurice Salama - (5/20/2011 7:47 AM)

Francois & Hayfa'a; Yes, there are many studies on Zirconium implants available in the literature. The Z Systems has One-Piece Implants only but there are other Zirconium Implant Systems available that have a 2-Piece product as well. Zirconium has shown an ability to osseointegrate and is quite friendly to the soft tissue as well. thanks Dr. Salama

Excellent presentation Dr. Salama. Do we have study about zirconium implant?

Maurice Salama - (1/26/2011 12:55 PM)

Dr Hayfa'a Bashir; The literature appears to show a similar osseointegration of Zirconium implants as Titanium. Some caveats; the implant is currently available ONLY in One-Piece and requires preparation of the abutment intra-orally and is NOT suggested for immediate loading or temporization. Thank you for your post Dr. Salama

dr. Hayfa'a Bashir - (1/26/2011 7:10 AM)

Hi,Dr.Salama, GREAT!! its nice to use zirconium implant system & Z-instruments instead of Ti -implants for allergic patients. BUT,is the integrity of osseointegration in zirconium implant to bone is similar to that between metal & bone? -Can it used in all bone qualities of jaws? -This system is delivered in (one piece) only??? Thank u,,, Dr. Hayfa'a A. Bashir GBOI-DGZI;batch 2-SUDAN.

Thank you , Dr.Salama .Did you ever consider GBR+CTG for this case ?and the Zirconium implants all made in one piece ?

Maurice Salama - (1/5/2011 10:30 AM)

Dentimp; Great question. As we do not know the fate of the buccal plate's resorption after implant placement, in the esthetic zone Zirconium Implants (shown here) and/or abutments are useful to hide any color change. Additionally the CTG graft (shown here) helps to thicken the attached gingiva and also prevent negative changes to the gingival stability and color even if some labial plate resorption takes place.

I notice that the drill " shadow " appeared during prep ,will the buccal bone be too thin ?

Vertical or Shoulderless Preparations in Contemporary Prosthodontics
Tooth preparations without a defined finish line have been termed in several different ways, such as knife edge, feather edge, or shoulderless. From a biological standpoint, preserving a maximum amount of sound tooth structure, as it is done in vertical preparations, might also offer a more conservative alternative to a horizontal margin design in other clinical conditions such as endodontically treated teeth, vital teeth in young individual, teeth affected by caries at the cervical third. Vertical margins on zirconia crowns have been tested in vitro and clinical reports have been published. A re-evaluation of possible advantages and shortcomings of vertical preparation design in contemporary prosthodontics will be presented in light of recently published literature.

Predictable Implant Aesthetics Utilizing A Custom Fabricated Provisional Abutment & Impression Coping Premium Member Content

Predictable Implant Aesthetics Utilizing A Custom Fabricated Provisional Abutment & Impression Coping
Mastering the art of predictable implant aesthetics can be challenging. One of the most stressful areas for most dentists is the process of creating a beautiful provisional that will guide tissue and predictably communicate the aesthetic outcome for the final restoration in the aesthetic zone. Combining the use of a custom fabricated provisional abutment, provisional restoration and a custom fabricated impression coping many of the aesthetics challenges can be addressed. This information can then be communicated to the laboratory to ensure the most predictable aesthetic outcome possible. This program is designed to simplify and streamline the entire process of implant provisionalization and impression. This program will provide a systematic, step by step approach to tissue management, provisionalization and impression of implant cases.

Tipping the Needle in Implant Dentistry
New materials, new implant designs, smarter surfaces, computer software and much more are helping us push the boundaries of what we thought “possible” in implant dentistry. Osseointegration is no longer in question. In this webinar Dr. Stanley will show you how 3D guided surgery improved the surgical time and outcome; how new regeneration materials like a- PRF and i-PRF are revolutionizing hound healing and soft tissue management; how immediate loading can be a simple procedure but most of all, how to use the best materials and technology to improve your surgical skills. By presenting some selected clinical cases, Dr. Stanley will show you what can be done with careful planning and execution in clinical implantology.
