Implant Site Preparation with Motorized Bone Expanders

Implant Site Preparation with Motorized Bone Expanders
The osteotome technique has been utilized for many years as a viable approach to expand atrophic ridges. Despite its effectiveness, the mechanical impact from the surgical mallet is not well tolerated by patients. Additionally, reports in the literature describe postoperative complications that include concussions and benign paroxysmal vertigo. These conditions can be alarming for the patient and clinician, as their effects may persist for several weeks. A new technique for atraumatic ridge expansion…

Workshop Guidelines on Immediate Loading in Implant Dentistry

Workshop Guidelines on Immediate Loading in Implant Dentistry
Predictable formation of a direct bone-to implant interface is a treatment goal in implant dentistry. The 2-stage surgical protocol established by Branemark et al to accomplish osseointegration consisted of several prerequisites, including (1) countersinking the implant below the crestal bone, (2) obtaining and maintaining a soft-tissue covering over the implant for 3 to 6 months, and (3) maintaining a minimally loaded implant environment for 3 to 6 months. The primary reasons cited for the submerged,…

Esthetic Rehabilitation of the Periodontally Compromised Dentition Premium Member Content

Esthetic Rehabilitation of the Periodontally Compromised Dentition
Rehabilitation of esthetics in advanced periodontal cases presents a major challenge in dentistry today. Patients with advanced disease affecting teeth in the esthetic zone, where significant asymmetrical bone loss and tissue recession are present, constitute a challenging treatment-planning dilemma when choosing the optimum therapeutic option for long-term maintenance. This article reviews a novel interdisciplinary approach for vertical augmentation of bone and soft tissues by means of orthodontic extrusion of severely periodontally compromised teeth, facilitating the restoration of esthetics with improved bone and soft tissue volume around immediate implants.

Site Preparation & Osseodensification in Bone Management Premium Member Content

Site Preparation & Osseodensification in Bone Management
Today's implant arena involves not only the understanding of procedures but also the science behind wound healing. Often new technologies and instrumentation evolves that have a significant impact on what we are able to do clinically. Piezosurgical devices, periotomes, osteotomes, hydraulic sinus devices, neurosurgical drills, and the "PET" (Partial Extraction Therapies) system are just a short list of those that have made surgery more efficient and less traumatic for our patients. Osseodensification is another concept that can be added to this long list. This lecture will speak about new age bone management concepts and how these technologies may be able to assist us. Potential issues and focus on use will be touched upon as well.

The Anatomical Foundation of Implant Surgery Premium Member Content

The Anatomical Foundation of Implant Surgery
Knowledge of Surgical Anatomy is a critical foundation for any clinician involved in implant dentistry. In order for dentists to perform safe and successful bone grafting, implant surgery as well as effectively manage complications, they must first be well versed in the fundamentals of Surgical Anatomy of the head region with emphasis on the Maxilla, Mandible, as well as the roof and floor of the mouth. This Dentalxp presentation, in part, describes the objectives of one component of a comprehensive hands-on surgical Anatomy course being offered live in partnership with Dentalxp. This section emphasizes the Surgical Anatomy of the Maxilla and Maxillary Sinus as an example of what is covered in one section of the course lectures.
