Summary:

This is the first study to report the clinical outcomes of photofunctionalized dental implants. This retrospective study analyzed 95 consecutive patients who received 222 untreated implants and 70 patients who received 168 photofunctionalized implants over a follow-up period of 2.5 years. Photofunctionalization was performed by treating implants with UV light for 15 minutes using a photo device immediately before placement. Within the limits of this retrospective study, despite the more frequent use of shorter and smaller-diameter implants, the use of photofunctionalization allowed for a faster loading protocol without compromising the success rate.

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.

Step-By-Step Surgical Video of Horizontal and Vertical Defects - Part 2 of 2
Emphasis will be placed on the benefits of the augmentation technique on revascularization: the use of autologous bone grafts on a scaffold of xenograft material saturated in PRP (Platelets Rich Plasma), covered with PPP (Platelets Poor Plasma). Soft tissue manipulation with role-up technique is demonstrated prior to implants placement.
Six months after implants placement, the second phase of uncovering is shown.

Surgical Management of Posterior Maxilla Premium Member Content

Surgical Management of Posterior Maxilla
Replacement of missing teeth with dental Implants in the posterior maxilla presents unique challenges due to maxillary sinus, less quality of bone, and increased occlusal load. The surgical objectives to meet functional and aesthetic goals include enhancement of both quantity and quality of bone as well as ideal placement of dental implants for restorations that mimic nature. In this presentation, Dr. H. Ryan Kazemi discusses current surgical techniques in implant site development in the posterior maxilla including extraction site grafting, sinus lift, bi-directional bone graft, and osseodensification for bone management.

Interpositional Bone Grafts to Treat the Posterior Atrophic Mandible Premium Member Content

Interpositional Bone Grafts to Treat the Posterior Atrophic Mandible
This presentation analyzes the interpositional bone graft or inlay technique, discussing the reconstructive surgical approach. Horizontal osteotomy with the interposition of bone in the form of a “sandwich” involves raising a coronal osteotomized segment of the mandible, which is still attached to the lingual periosteum, and interpositioning a block bone graft. This technique guarantees a dual vascular supply to the inlay graft from the lingual periosteum and from the residual bone; it also allows optimum use of the native basal bone, which should be less prone to resorption. The advantages and disadvantages of the inlay technique are compared with other commonly used augmentation techniques in the management of posterior mandibular atrophies.

The 10 Year Evolution of Guided Surgery, What We Have Learned From our First Patients
The initial NobelGuide protocol was developed and completed in 2003 for the first series of treated North American edentulous patients. The 10-year clinical results from this initial patient group treated with implant placement and immediate loading via a fixed prosthesis, now provides insights into what have we learned from the evolution of guided implant treatments to ensure and improve surgical and prosthodontic treatment outcomes.
