Fifty Years of Interdisciplinary Site Development: Lessons & Guidelines from Periodontal Prosthesis
Just as "osseointegration" became synonymous with successful restoration of function in the fully edentulous patient during the 1980s, the term "implant site development" has become intricately associated in the 1990s with the techniques used to achieve esthetic results with implants in the partially edentulous patient. This article explores the roots of the concept of site development within the philosophy and principles of periodontal prosthesis. In addition, the myriad of techniques that are…

Soft Tissue Recession Around Implants 2

Soft Tissue Recession Around Implants 2
Implant therapy is a predictable method of replacing lost teeth and involves consideration of numerous surgical and restorative criteria. Part I of this article explained the behavior of the hard and soft tissue around the implant and reviewed various parameters that influence tissue remodeling. Part II emphasizes surgical factors (eg, tridimensional implant placement, platelet-rich fibrin, and the use of connective tissue grafts) and restorative factors as means of limiting soft tissue recession around implants.

The Reverse Pathway - Parameters for the Integration of Function and Aesthetics with Implants
Restorative driven implant based decision making by the surgeon will lead to the correct augmentation and implant selection for the specific needs of the patient. This "reverse pathway" approach is the protocol featured in this article to achieve excellent results and avoid complications.

Esthetic Tissue Reconstruction Around Implants - Part 1 of 2 Premium Member Content

Esthetic Tissue Reconstruction Around Implants - Part 1 of 2
Esthetics in implant-supported restorations is an important clinical objective in contemporary dentistry. Understanding the biological behavior of hard and soft tissues following tooth extraction is the first step to anticipate the physiological tissue remodeling and its consequences. Our objective in these 2 sequencial lectures was to provide straightforward decision trees related to several clinical scenarios observed in routine clinical practice. The 3 fundamental pillars for peri-implant excellence are: restorative-driven implant position, hard and soft tissue reconstruction using different biomaterials and grafts, and prosthetic management. Using this philosophical approach seems to provide esthetic and stable results over time irrespective of the initial clinical condition.

Immediate Molar Implants: When, Why, and How? Premium Member Content

Immediate Molar Implants: When, Why, and How?
Multi-rooted extraction sockets are often too large to accommodate a traditional diameter implant, therefore ultra wide diameter implants as a clinical alternative can predictably simplify procedures without compromising function and esthetics. Problems with use of traditional implants may include the ability to gain adequate primary stability, use of large amounts of graft material, and poor embrasure spaces causing food impaction. The focus of this lecture will highlight clinical rational to improve success, anatomical and restorative benefits of immediate placement, evidence-based outcomes reported in literature, and survival and success rates reported by the presenter. This lecture is intended for restorative dentists.

Ridge Expansion, GBR & Meshes: Decision Making in Clinical Practice Premium Member Content

Ridge Expansion, GBR & Meshes: Decision Making in Clinical Practice
A variety of bone augmentation procedures are currently available at use to the clinician. Techniques of variable complexity can essentially yield favorable results. The choice of technique to utilize however, is often based on defect site presentation and operator comfort level. This presentation will focus on the use of ridge expansion, guided bone regeneration (GBR), and titanium mesh. Merits and indications of each technique will be discussed, and clinical cases will be presented that showcase the decision making process involved in treatment planning.
