Platform Switching Research and Clinical Decisions in Implant Therapy - Part 1

Description:
This presentation by Dr. Alan Fetner, a periodontist from Jacksonville Florida, discusses how he utilized a retrospective analysis of his clinical results to confirm his decision to utilize a platform switch implant design combined with subcrestal placement to optimize and stabilize osseous and esthetic soft tissue levels.

Kym Stock;
Always place head of implant depth related to facial/buccal bone height and not the interproximal. 2-3mm is an average below the future margin of the gingiva. Yes, that is more depth interproximally especially in highly scalloped cases.

Kym Stock - (6/19/2010 7:51 PM)

When claculating depth of the fixture in a highly scalloped bone case, do you calculate the amount of sub osseous depth for fixture placement from the facial/buccal bone height or the interproximal bone level (which will obviously be deeper).

Do you often see bown growth over the cover screw when utilizing 2 stage approach with subcrestal implants?

Nice lecture, Thanks to Dr Fetner. I am curious to know that platform switching is the only method to prevent marginal bone resorption for two stage subcrestal placed implants? Do u think platform switching goes well or prevention of micromovement plays more important for inhibition of crestal resorption?

The Socket Shield Technique - Have the Rules of the Game Changed in Aesthetic Zone Implant Therapy? Premium Member Content

The Socket Shield Technique - Have the Rules of the Game Changed in Aesthetic Zone Implant Therapy?
Implant therapy is in the age of being increasingly aesthetically driven, not merely restorative. With the increasing popularity of immediate implants, particularly with anterior tooth extraction, the relevance of socket changes following extraction has come to the fore. Contrary to what was originally believed, the installation of an immediate implant does not arrest bone loss, and immediate implants in the aesthetic zone are prone to recession of bone and soft tissue as a result of bundle bone resorption which is obligatory with tooth extraction.

Current Concepts for the Preservation of the Post-Extraction Alveolar Ridge Premium Member Content

Current Concepts for the Preservation of the Post-Extraction Alveolar Ridge
After tooth extraction, bone resorption of varying amounts always occurs as the edentulous site of the alveolar process undergoes both qualitative and quantitative changes. Different techniques have been presented in literature in order to preserve the post-extraction site, including the use of barrier membranes, tri-dimensional matrix and bone fillers. An “open-healing” approach is nowadays commonly used, combining a proper management of soft tissues with biological integration of biomaterials. Once hard tissue has been successfully augmented, an adequate soft tissue thickness becomes mandatory in order to create healthy and stable peri-implant tissues. An innovative volume-stable collagen matrix provides the opportunity to treat soft tissue defects around implants as an alternative to connective tissue graft.

Transitional Custom Abutments: Optimizing Esthetics in Implant Supported Restorations
As the discipline of implant prosthodontics continues to evolve, additional emphasis has been focused on the role of adequate emergence profiles and peri-implant soft tissue contours. Despite the development of anatomically shaped healing abutments, currently advocated techniques exhibit clinical limitations. This article introduces the transitional custom abutment technique as a method of manipulating the supraimplant soft tissue contours so that optimal emergence profiles and increased restorative flexibility…

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.
