Summary:

Alveolar ridge augmentation using autogenous block grafts is a predictable method to augment localized alveolar ridge defects for implant placement. Large atrophic edentulous segments present a more challenging scenario in reconstruction,because there is a limited supply of intraoral donor bone. Extraoral donor sites are an option, but present an obstacle to patient treatment acceptability because of increased costs and morbidity. The purpose of this case study was to evaluate the effectiveness of using particulate human mineralized allograft in combination with an intraoral cortical block graft, in a “tenting” fashion, to augment large intraoral alveolar ridge defects for implant placement.

Immediate Occlusal Loading (IOL) of Dental Implants: Predictable Results Through DIEM Guidelines

Immediate Occlusal Loading (IOL) of Dental Implants: Predictable Results Through DIEM Guidelines
In recent years, the immediate loading of dental implants has become more accepted as a standard protocol for the treatment of the fully edentulous mandible. The pioneers in implant dentistry often tried this technique but only achieved mixed success. One of the main reasons for the failure of these early attempts was the lack of understanding of the biological and mechanical principles that we now know are necessary for clinical success.

Crestal Bone Stability around Implants with Horizontally Matching Connection after Soft Tissue Thickening: A Prospective Clinical Trial

Crestal Bone Stability around Implants with Horizontally Matching Connection after Soft Tissue Thickening: A Prospective Clinical Trial
It has been shown that thin mucosal tissues may be an important factor in crestal bone loss etiology. Thus, it is possible that mucosal tissue thickening with allogenic membrane might reduce crestal bone loss. Purpose: The purpose of this study was to evaluate how implants with traditional connection maintain crestal bone level after soft tissue thickening with allogenic membrane. After 1-year follow-up, implants in group A had 1.65 1 0.08-mm bone loss mesially and 1.81 1 0.06 mm distally. Group B had 0.31 1 0.05 mm mesially and 0.34 1 0.05 mm distally. C group implants experienced bone loss of 0.44 1 0.06 mm mesially and 0.47 1 0.07 mm distally. Differences between A and B, and A and C were significant both mesially and distally, whereas differences between B and C were not significant mesially and distally

PETology and Complete Ridge Maintenance
For a long time it has been discussed about different ways to avoid dimensional changes at post extraction sockets. Through the philosophy of the Partial Extraction Therapies we will be able analyze and plan our cases in a different and unique way not only in the esthetic zone also in partial and full arch cases in a predictable and reproducible way.

A New & Improved Approach to Zygomatic Implants Premium Member Content

A New & Improved Approach to Zygomatic Implants
Over the past decade numerous approaches to the rehabilitation of severe maxillary atrophy have been suggested. Most approaches involve the utilization of the Zygoma for anchorage of specially developed extra long Implants. These implants often must either enter through the sinus or pass along the outside of the sinus wall depending upon the transverse discrepancies and horizontal ridge resorption issues as well as future occlusal scheme with the mandibular arch. This new approach described in this presentation addresses this potential compromise through extra-maxillary bone grafting performed at the time of Zygoma placement utilizing fresh frozen iliac bone and bone marrow aspirate. Multiple cases will be highlighted and short term follow up described.

Digital Workflow for Anterior Implant Aesthetics Premium Member Content

Digital Workflow for Anterior Implant Aesthetics
We have seen excellent results in the aesthetic zone when immediate implant placement techniques have been used. A review of the current literature reveals and confirms the re-education of mid-buccal facial recession is best when an immediate provisional is used. If we can digitize this information and create a crown-root form matrix, we can allow tissue to maintain the exact 3D position of the crown and root of the tooth that is to be replaced. A technique using "dicom" files and "STL" files of the original tooth-root will be demonstrated. This will allow ideal healing of the surrounding hard and soft tissues in for any implants restoration.

The Evolution of Site Management for Implant Placement
During the last 20 years we have experience in Periodontics and Implantology a large amount of research and clinical cases that have aloud us to better understand how the Extraction and Implant Site behave. The Evolution of Site Management for Implant Placement goes to what we consider the most critical factors that influence our results in todays practice. The presentation goes through the evidence based alternatives and how this have changed with time. We also go through the Socket Shield alternative and present some of what we consider the future on this area will be.

The Role of Digital Technologies & Materials for Full-Arch Implant Reconstruction Premium Member Content

The Role of Digital Technologies & Materials for Full-Arch Implant Reconstruction
In prosthetic rehabilitations, we used for many years codified and widely described protocols in literature, with results that met our expectations and well above those of our patients. It is true that the advent of new technologies has enabled the dental team to use new material and new equipment that facilitated the production of an adaptation and an accuracy of the prosthetic rehabilitation that has, up to now, been difficult to obtain. In this presentation, we will analyze different cases, highlighting the operational differences that they have developed over time, with the increasing knowledge of the new materials and the daily developing of the new software's. It is also described how traditional materials and techniques have been replaced with other innovative new technologies, and how the results obtained with these are systematic and significantly better in updated generations prior.
