PET in Conjuction with Apisectomy Procedure

Description:
A frequently asked question: Is a tooth with a small periapical infection contra-indicated for a PET procedure? This presentation showcases a technique for effectively performing a PET with implant placement and an immediate provisional crown for a central incisor with a small periapical infection.

Well done my friend

Thank you Udatta for this lecture. I agree that huge periapical lesions are a contraindication only if we cannot reach primary stability on the immediate implants as you say in your book eventually, and you can also use PET combined with bone regeneration and insert the implant with delayed approach. About the aesthetic buccal flap design also I have to say that you have a great visibility but sometimes you have scars to consider in gums exposures during smiling of the patient. I would go in such cases with only one vertical incision, less visibility but better healing. Regards my friend!

Great presentation, Udatta!! Thank you.

Thanks Snjezana for your appreciation. I stand corrected. I ought to have said huge lesions are relative contraindications for PET. Not absolute.

Nice mini lecture,Udatta,I hsve enjoyed watching very much!I only disagree that huge periapical areas are contrandication for PET.We can prepare socket shield,graft the socket with dentin autogrsft, cortical tuberosity or allograft and come in 4 months to place an implant.

Esthetic Management for Compromised Extraction Sites - Part 2 of 2
Missing soft tissue is the main reason for compromised results in the aesthetic zone. But since the soft tissue has to be supported by a sufficient amount of bone, our focus has also to be on bone. Due to the fact that no bone-preservation technique (at the time of tooth extraction) available today, gives us the perfect result we need, augmentation procedures are still needed. Appropriate bone and soft tissue engineering in all three dimensions enhances the aesthetic performance of long-lasting restorations that blend in well and emerge from the periimplant sulcus in harmony with the neighboring teeth.

Implant Overdentures: What You Need to Know
Implant Dentistry has evolved from the original concept of primarily treating the edentulous mandible with a retrievable fixed prosthesis. Today most dental implant cases involve partially edentulous situations treated with fixed prosthetic solutions. However the fully edentulous mandible and maxilla still comprise an important subset of our patients, and techniques for utilizing fixed and removable full arch prostheses have evolved to restore both arches. The relative pros and cons when comparing the fixed vs removable prosthetic treatment can be very significant. This presentation will rationalize the treatment options available and demonstrate the advantages of the unsplinted full maxillary arch overdenture design.

Partial Extraction Therapies: From Failure to Everyday Practice - Part 1 of 4
Tooth extraction is usually followed by the resorption of support tissues that may compromise the aesthetic and functional prognosis of the final rehabilitation. There have been numerous publications suggesting Partial Extraction Therapies contribute to the maintenance of the alveolar ridge dimensions. These techniques consist in intentionally preserving a buccal root fragment in order to avoid tearing the periodontal ligament and loosing the bundle bone, which leads to bone resorption. It has been reported that these are very sensitive techniques and may lead to some complications. In order to avoid these complications, the dental surgeon must know which cases can be treated with Partial Extraction Therapies and how to correctly perform them. In these presentations we will show what are the indications and contraindications, how to perform these techniques, the literature that sustains it, how can we benefit from digital technology to today's world, etc.

Complete Management of the Implant Site: From Simple Cases to Complex Situations Premium Member Content

Complete Management of the Implant Site: From Simple Cases to Complex Situations
The health and the structure of the peri-implant tissue is vital for a long term prognosis of aesthetic and functional dental treatments. The prevalence of peri-implant diseases and recessions is a problem that must be overcome by a perfect treatment planning, along with a step-by-step design of the future restorations. When the clinician places an implant, he must consider the 3D positioning regarding the hard and soft tissue. When one decide to restore an implant, he must be aware of the gingival volume and it’s position. In this presentation, we want to show fully documented cases, from bone grafting, soft tissue enhancement, to final restorations.

The “Scalloped Guide”: A Proof-of-Concept Technique for a Digitally Streamlined, Pink-Free Full-Arch Implant Protocol
Inadequate restorative space can result in mechanical, biologic, and esthetic complications with full-arch fixed implant-supported prosthetics. As such, clinicians often reduce bone to create clearance. The aim of this paper was to present a protocol using stacking computer-aided design/computerassisted manufacturing (CAD/CAM) guides to minimize and accurately obtain the desired bone reduction, immediately place prosthetically guided implants, and load a provisional that replicates predetermined tissue contour. This protocol can help clinicians minimize bone reduction and place the implants in an ideal position that allows them to emerge from the soft tissue interface with a natural, pink-free zirconia fixed dental prostheses.

Does residual cement around implant-supported restorations cause peri-implant disease? A retrospective case analysis
The purpose of this study was to determine the relationship between patients with a history of periodontitis and development of cement-related peri-implant disease. Seventy-seven patients with 129 implants for this retrospective analysis were selected from completed implant cases that were scheduled for regular maintenance or had experienced mechanical or biological complications between years 2006 and 2011 in private practice. Implants with extracoronal residual cement and implants without cement remnants were analyzed.
