Summary:

The aim of this paper was to report preliminary results from a cohort of subjects treated with the RevitaliZe Patient Solutions approach. Clinical and radiographic results of axial and tilted implants up to fourteen months of loading are presented. Seven patients were followed up for an average of 11,88 months (range 8-16 months). Five subjects received implant treatment in both arches, resulting in 12 restorations. A total of 48 fixtures were placed and no failure was reported during the follow-up period, leading to 100% implant and prosthetic survival rates. Radiographic analysis after 6 months of loading was conducted for all prostheses. No significant difference in marginal bone loss was found between tilted and axial implants in both jaws. The present preliminary data suggests that immediate loading with RevitaliZe Patient Solutions could be considered a predictable and cost- and timeeffective approach for the treatment of total edentulism.

Finding Z: A Mathematical Method For Predicting Tissue Position After Implant Abutment-Restoration Placement
A visible abutment-restorative interface is a problematic consequence, especially in the esthetic zone. This article presents formulas to predict the vertical tissue position around the abutment-restoration, which can be used both as a guide to the clinical situation and as an aid to computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing design.

The “Scalloped Guide”: A Proof-of-Concept Technique for a Digitally Streamlined, Pink-Free Full-Arch Implant Protocol

The “Scalloped Guide”: A Proof-of-Concept Technique for a Digitally Streamlined, Pink-Free Full-Arch Implant Protocol
Inadequate restorative space can result in mechanical, biologic, and esthetic complications with full-arch fixed implant-supported prosthetics. As such, clinicians often reduce bone to create clearance. The aim of this paper was to present a protocol using stacking computer-aided design/computerassisted manufacturing (CAD/CAM) guides to minimize and accurately obtain the desired bone reduction, immediately place prosthetically guided implants, and load a provisional that replicates predetermined tissue contour. This protocol can help clinicians minimize bone reduction and place the implants in an ideal position that allows them to emerge from the soft tissue interface with a natural, pink-free zirconia fixed dental prostheses.

Novel Technique for Alveolar Bone Augmentation; Introducing The "Bio-Bone-Block" Concept
This presentation will discuss the use of autologous onlay block bone grafting for reconstruction of moderate to severe maxillary and mandibular alveolar ridge deficiencies. In particular, emphasis on the “Bio-Bone-Block” concept and re-entry to the original donor site for a second block harvest, if necessary. We will also covers the use of progenitor cells (bone marrow aspirating concentrated) along with PRP and PPP for accelerated healing.

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.

Controversies Surrounding Delayed vs. Immediate Implant Placement: Is There No Middle Ground?
This presentation looks critically at the literature and attempts to give clinicians a more flexible approach to immediate and delayed implant placement. Critical surgical guidelines and clinical pearls will be offered for both types of treatment as well as the management of some of the complications that may arise from immediate or delayed implant placement.
