Summary:

It has been well established that osteointegration of a dental implant is one of the fundamental components for successful implant therapy. A vital portion of this process is ascertainment of the appropriate prosthetic tooth position from which the ideal dental implant position is dictated within the alveolar bone. I It is equally imperative that prosthetically gUided implant positioning be accomplished for predictable attainment of functional, aesthetic, and hygienically maintainable restorative outcomes. Another equally important component is the capture of the intraoral three-dimensional position of the dental implant fixtures, the associated peri-implant tissues, and the exact transfer of this informa tion to the laboratory model. This is particularly critical when fabricating a superstructure or fixed partial framework costing " This is also important when fabricating on implant-supported fixed partial denture (FPDl, since any inaccuracies in the transfer of information from the patient to the laboratory can lead to the fabrication of a non passive fitted costing and/or a costing that rocks when secured 5 Either of the aforementioned conditions will result in noncompressional forces that will be detrimental to the long-term success of the prosthesis.

Introducing Choukroun’s Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) to the Reconstructive Surgery Milieu

Introducing Choukroun’s Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) to the Reconstructive Surgery Milieu
Platelet-rich fibrin (PRF), developed in France by Choukroun et al (2001), is a second generation platelet concentrate widely used to accelerate soft and hard tissue healing. Its advantages over the better known platelet-rich plasma (PRP) include ease of preparation/application, minimal expense, and lack of biochemical modification (no bovine thrombin or anticoagulant is required). PRF is a strictly autologous fibrin matrix containing a large quantity of platelet and leukocyte cytokines. This article serves as an introduction to the PRF “concept” and its potential clinical applications.

CT-Derived Model-Based Surgery for Immediate Loading of Maxillary Anterior Implants

CT-Derived Model-Based Surgery for Immediate Loading of Maxillary Anterior Implants
A novel approach to predict implant placement utilizing CT-derived model-based surgery was performed for a maxillary-anterior aesthetic immediate extraction/immediate restoration; root proximity and inter-implant positioning was an additional complication. The use of state-of-the-art diagnostic and treatmentplanning tools described in this article has been shown to be effective for both partial and completely edentulous patient presentations. These tools can serve as a foundation for accurate, highly practical, and repeatable CT-scan–derived modelbased presurgical prosthetic planning for the immediate loading of dental implants.

The Diagnosis and Treatment of Inflammatory Peri-implant Disease: We Have a Problem
This detailed presentation will discuss the etiology, microbiology, histopathology and clinical manifestations of peri-implant disease, and will present evidence based in-office and at-home treatment regimens to stop mucositis from progressing to peri-implantitis. Additionally, "COAP", a new minimally invasive surgical technique for the treatment of peri-implantitis will be introduced.

Partial Extraction Therapy (PET) in Everyday Practice: Part 2
This presentation describes new tools, including burs and new trans-mucosal abutments, which may enhance the clinician's ability to incorporate the Socket Shield technique into their practice. In addition, incorporating in-office CAD CAM technology, such as Zirkonzahn, makes it possible to design and fabricate same-day custom restorations including the ability, under special circumstances, to go directly to the final restoration.

Immediate Dental Implants; Are They a Good Option?
Immediate implant placement used to be a controversial subject, but nowadays we can obtain long-term high survival rates with this treatment option. Since surgical and prosthetic time is reduced and a great aesthetic result can be achieved, this therapy is often practiced. The aim of this presentation is to clarify which parameters and how can they influence a successful outcome in immediate implant placement. Several documented clinical cases and supporting literature will be presented to guide through diagnosis, treatment options and improvement of final outcome.

Modern Approach of Full Arch Immediate Loading Premium Member Content

Modern Approach of Full Arch Immediate Loading
In Immediate loading, the survival rate is often based on the follow-up of the osseointegration, but without aesthetic appreciation... The main goal is to achieve osseointegration and aesthetics in order to get long term stability. For this goal we need to obtain both, bone formation and gum thickness, as any failure in one of the 2 factors, will induce the loss of the second factor. This presentation will show my statistics about more than 1100 full arch loaded immediately since 14 years (> 7700 implants)

Managing Technology for Best Outcomes and Productivity Premium Member Content

Managing Technology for Best Outcomes and Productivity
Digital technology provides tools to improve planning, clinical execution, prosthetic design, manufacturing, maintenance, and cost of care. Dental professionals need to understand the value of individual technologies as well as the benefit derived from linking them together. During this presentation, a business model and clinical cases will be used to illustrate how a number of digital technologies can impact outcomes and productivity.
