Shape Color and Contour of Peri-Implant Tissue - The Role of the Abutment-Connection Complex

Description:
In this presentation, Dr. Barry Goldenberg outlines the unique role that the implant abutment/connection complex plays in peri-implant tissue stability. Specifically, how the interactions of the various components in this complex, and their relationship to each other, influence the shape, color and contour of the critical soft tissue around implants in the esthetic zone. In addition, stock and custom abutments are compared relative to their respective benefits.

l enjoyed a lot....thank you,from patagonia argentina

Barry, First, thank you for your comments. I certainly appreciate them and you bring up some valid points to discuss. It’ll be interesting to see what happens with Atlantis. At this point I am reliant on stock abutments, but that does not seem to pose any problems for us. There are various angles available and when necessary (although very rarely), we have been able to cast to and make telescopic copings to solve a particular problem. I am not relying on the contour of the abutment to shape the tissue but rather the crown. This has not been a problem, but as you stated, cement removal can be. There are various techniques that are available to remove excess cement prior to cementing intraorally and we consistently use them. There are also abutments available for screw retention, if that is your choice. When you say that there are other systems more user friendly you are also correct; however, in my opinion that is not the best way of choosing any system. The biological response we have seen over the past 7 years has been outstanding. By the way, I also use other implant systems when referred. Lastly, the donut bet is interesting. The Atlantis abutments may ultimately look better on the preparation aspect, but the key is with the conical connection. That’s where the success takes place. Let's see what happens. Great points for further discussion. Thanks again! Barrry

Nice presentation, however, I wonder if your opinion will change once Ankylos has Atlantis abutments available for its system. A stock abutment on an "ideal" platform will never out preform an ideal abutment on an ideal platform, if not for cement removal alone. "Ham-string" your referrals with this system and a slightly misaligned fixture and see the results. Your only choice is a stock abutment and compromise all around. I see it all to often in my practice where the GPs give up with this system and what is available then ask me to bail them out. As a prosthodontist can you honestly say there is a higher comfort level with a stock zirconia abutment that has been ground upon by the lab to modify or an abutment that is milled specifically for the case and then fired? Yes, it is the system and the interface but there are other systems that are much more user friendly thus creating ideal from apex to emergence to function to esthetics. And I will bet dollars to donuts you will use Atlantis abutments once they are available. Thanks for listening.

Sinus Lift & Immediate Implant Placement: "The Easy Protocol"
Sinus lift is still a common procedure in 2017. Many alternative techniques to sinus lift have been published to avoid invading this anatomical space, such as tilted implants with angled prosthetic abutments, extra short implants, distal pontic cantilever, zygomatic or tuberosity implant placements. However, many situations like highly pneumatized sinus for single missing tooth, extreme atrophic areas at posterior sites, etc. will necessary have to be solved performing sinus lift techniques to regenerate the missing alveolar bone and this alternative options cannot be taken.

Implants in the Esthetic Zone: A Prosthodontics Approach to a Periodontics Challenge
Edentulism in the anterior sector of the maxillary arch may represent a complex situation for the restorative treatment. Due to the esthetic importance of this area of the mouth, it is imperative that we have a complete harmony between soft tissues, bone and teeth. In situations where dentition has been missing for a many years, bone and soft tissue loss can make the restorative treatment more complex. When diagnosing and treatment planning a patient with such problems; it is important to analyze all probable treatment options. Interdisciplinary treatment planning, will help achieve success when dealing with cases like these. This is why adequate communication between, the surgeon and restorative dentist is imperative.

Immediate Implants: Science and Art - Part 1 of 2
By scientific studies produced in recent years has been confirmed, in selected cases, the validity of the post-extraction implants. The use of this method implies a lower emotional impact, a single surgery and a healing often better for the patient.We will be discussed traumatic extraction methods, perfect insertion of the implants with or without bone regeneration with bone substitutes and membranes and the opportunity to combine an advanced method as immediate implant with the execution of an immediate loading to restore aesthetics in more complex cases.

"The Socket Shield Technique"; Myths & Realities Premium Member Content

"The Socket Shield Technique"; Myths & Realities
Socket Shield Technique is a concept in implant dentistry that utilizes the partial extraction therapy principles, with the goal of preserving the hard and soft tissues around the dental implants. It has been reported to be a very predictable therapy so far. The proper case selection is crucial for the success of the technique. In fact, it is very technique sensitive and requires an advanced level in implant dentistry. Although the technique has a high overall success rate, but long term studies and high evidence level researches are needed to support the proof of principle available. This presentation will discuss and review the "myths & realities" of the new Socket Shield Technique or "PET" (Partial Extraction Therapy) concept.

Socket Preservation to Gain

Socket Preservation to Gain
Tooth loss not only poses difficulty in mastication, it also involves the probable resorption of alveolar bone due to a loss of function and stimulation from the periodontal ligament fibers (PDL). Bone grafting at the time of tooth removal provides bone quantity and quality for future placement of dental implant(s). The challenge during this procedure—referred to as socket preservation—is maintaining the graft in place as well as providing a final working area with sufficient keratinized tissue…

Developing Optimal Peri-Implant Papillae within the Esthetic Zone: Guided Soft Tissue Augmentation
Osseointegrated dental implants have enjoyed long-term success in the rehabilitation of totally edentulous patients. Every aspect of traditional treatment planning protocols continues to be re-evaluated and updated to better incorporate the benefits of osseointegration into clinical practice. This is particularly evident as dentistry has committed to fully integrating this approach into the more varied and demanding environment of the partially edentulous patient. Along with the many benefits of added predictability and enhanced options, the ever-evolving role of osseointegrated implants in the treatment pf the partially edentulous jaw has also created new challenged. Unlike the fully edentulous individual who maintains the implant-restorative interface beyond the lip perimeter, many partially edentulous patients undergo the transition within the esthetic zone.

Patients are advised to maintain oral health in order to enjoy function and the natural appearance of their dentition for a lifetime. In the event that oral health becomes impaired, clinicians are capable of restoring it through either conservative or sophisticated treatment modalities. This treatment must be based on sound, rationalized clinical evidence and a clear understanding of the biological and physiological processes involved. Dental professionals must also acknowledge their personal limitations…
