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.

Hello Dr. Salama, Do you have the final outcome of this? Regards, Elkie

Maurice Salama - (2/22/2012 3:54 PM)

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.

Implants in the anterior jaws are predicated by aesthetic outcomes. This is largely dependent on the reasons for tooth loss, the hard and soft tissue conditions following tooth loss, the timing of implant placement etc. This presentation dwells on a few clinical examples of the pitfalls of anterior zone implant therapy and the strategies employed to overcome the same.

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.

Conservative Treament of the Edentulous Mandible
This presentation includes a candid discussion of the oral health care needs of the approximately 40 million edentulous adults in the USA. Many of these patients cannot afford or are too debilitated to have extensive oral care. There are several extensive and very expensive treatments for these patients that are currently being heavily promoted by companies and the lay press.

The Socket-Shield Technique to Support the Buccofacial Tissues at Immediate Implant Placement

The Socket-Shield Technique to Support the Buccofacial Tissues at Immediate Implant Placement
Tooth loss and subsequent ridge collapse continue to burden restorative implant treatment. Careful management of the post-extraction tissues is needed to preserve the alveolar ridge. In-lieu of surgical augmentation to correct a ridge defect, the socket-shield technique offers a promising solution. As the root submergence technique retains the periodontal attachment and maintains the alveolar ridge for pontic site development, this case report demonstrates the hypothesis that retention of a prepared tooth root section as a socket-shield prevents the recession of tissues buccofacial to an immediately placed implant. The socket-shield technique is a highly promising addition to clinical implant dentistry and this case report is among the first to demonstrate the procedure in clinical practice with a 1-year follow up.

Smoking and Complications of Endosseous Dental Implants

Smoking and Complications of Endosseous Dental Implants
Titanium endosseous implants have been increasingly used in various edentulous situations for well over a decade. Cigarette smoking has long been suspected as adversely affecting wound healing. Arteriolar vasoconstriction and decreased blood flow are seen in response to smoking. In the oral cavity,an increase in plaque accumulation,a higher incidence of gin-givitis and periodontitis,a higher rate of tooth loss,and an increased resorption of the alveolar ridge have been found among smokers.
