Restoration of Optimal Esthetics in Complex Clinical Situations

Description:
Patients often neglect or delay dental care for an extended time because of their negative experiences with and fear of dental treatments. This neglect may result in the advance of periodontitis with severe bone loss, a substantial number of missing teeth, and problems with the remaining teeth. Preexisting malocclusion can aggravate this condition. This case report demonstrates an interdisciplinary strategic approach, in combination with the use of biologically grounded, clinically proven, and viable techniques and technologies to restore optimal esthetics and function in such complex cases. The authors emphasize the importance of carefully planning the timing and sequence of performing periodontal, orthodontic, and implant therapies. The advanced techniques and technologies successfully implemented in this case report include the growth factor and titanium mesh (Ti mesh)-assisted bone augmentation; ovate pontic-mediated, noninvasive soft tissue contouring; and photofunctionalization of dental implants.

amazing presentation.

rocco mele - (9/3/2014 4:18 PM)

Dr. Ishikawa Thanks for the information and the website Rocco

Tomohiro Ishikawa - (9/2/2014 8:11 AM)

Dr Rosembalaum, Important points are flap design, releasing incision, and suture.

Tomohiro Ishikawa - (9/2/2014 8:06 AM)

Dr. Mele. Thank you for your question. We use photofunctionalization immediately before placing implants. I do not think that regular curing ultraviolet light would have the same positive benefits. Please check this website. www.photofunc-implant.org

Tomohiro Ishikawa - (9/2/2014 7:47 AM)

Dr Bayati, In the future, I will try to include a more detailed explanation in my videos.

Dr Goldstein, Thank you for your comment. We usually use Noritake porcelain.

Dr Ruiz and Dr Vicioso, Thank you very much for your compliments.

Incredible results.thank you for sharing. The 2 problems that I encountered with T mesh was the tearing of the tissue that happen quite often,and the difficulty to remove it.Do you have any tip about these two issues. Thank you.

rocco mele - (8/25/2014 6:53 PM)

Ohayou gozaimasu Dr Ishikawa: Loved the presentation. Please tell me about photofunctionalization of implants. Do you hit the implant with ultraviolet light before seating the implant. Or is it treated with light before packaging How about exposing the implant to a regular curing ultraviolet before placing. I may be a little naive but my research leaves me more confused. Could you fill in the blanks Rocco Mele DVM eastpointpetclinic.com

Prevention & Therapy of Biological Complications in Implant Dentistry - Part 1 of 2
After decades of implant therapies carried out by mostly general dentists, a new pathology that did not exist only 25 years ago is spreading like wildfire: peri-implantitis. In this course we will discuss the possibilities of prevention of this disease and the most modern therapies to treat biological complications in implant therapy in the light of clinical research published and in the next publication.

Treating the Terminal Dentition: A Patient-Center Approach
In patients with terminal dentition esthetic and functional replacement is a necessary objective, but no longer a sufficient-objective: nowadays, due to the clinical and extra clinical characteristics of these patients, management of the therapy is as important as its conclusion. Respect of the principle of autonomy, reduction of treatment length, simplification of surgical procedures and prosthetic management of implant immediate loading are the cornerstones of this philosophy and are the object of this lecture.

Peri-Implantitis: Diagnosis, Etiology and Treatment
The dental implant therapy has evolved both in implant surface and design. The reason for the initial crestal bone loss has been proven and the risks of having a peri-implantitis have increased due to the early exposure of roughened surface. The prevalence of peri-implantitis is at a range of 28 to 56%. The role of dental professionals nowadays is to know how to interpret the signs of inflammation and establish the diagnosis of peri-implantitis, which is the most challenging, and be able to treat it properly since this is becoming a more needed therapy.

Managing Esthetic Implant Complications Premium Member Content

Managing Esthetic Implant Complications
Dental implant success today is judged not only by osseointegration but also by bone, tissue stability and of course long term esthetic results. Cosmetic predictability can often be difficult to attain, and esthetic implant failures can be multifactorial and patient management issues. Once esthetic implant failures occur, many cannot be fully corrected. Some complications must be addressed by an interdisciplinary dental team. In this summary of case reports, surgical considerations are provided, including cases of facial asymmetry/recession due to facial implant placement or bone loss resulting from technique/treatment failures, as well as papillary deficiencies. Restorative considerations for correcting failures are also discussed.
