Zirconia Implants in the Age of 3D Imaging: An Alternative Therapy for Aesthetics and Function

Description:
Computer Guiding dental implants provides perfect positioning for mechanics and cosmetic results. The advantages provided by the implant selection utilizing interactive software libraries allows the implantologist to choose the best diameter, length and implant design for the specific surgical site. Zirconia implants can be computer guided and planned with interactive software and will provide enhanced aesthetic results as well as top gingival health due to the multiple advantages of zirconia.

Thank you ver much for your presentation. Please continue with your excellence in Dentistry.

Dear Dr Devlin
Dental Xp is constantly offerent different comprehensive Courses in digital technology.
If i have to suggest one single institute for grafting and implant placement my answer is go to Tampa and visit Dr Pikos, you wont regret.
The integration of softwares is necessary as there is no definite solution in digital dentistry since this is being invented and put together and we speak. Start working with a company like 360 imaging, or Glidewell (they have it very well figured out) or even your lab tech who may be already doing all this. Get a nice intraoral scanner and hopefully one that can interact with 3 Shape software. 3 Shape has a nice intraoral scanner, Itero can interact with 3Shape. Get some info and advise and do your homework as all these technology is rapidly changing and you dont want to get into it and become obsolete in months. So get a lab tech that is already digital and become best friend with him.

Dr. Devlin, please consider joining us for the 2014 DentalXP Global Symposium, as it will include courses on all of the topics you have mentioned. If you register before December 31st, you can actually receive 2 hands-on courses for free. www.dentalxp.com/symposium

Dr Ordonez,thanks for the very interesting presentation. May I ask if you have any recommendations on what CE courses you have taken or could recommend for bone grafting, implant placement, and particularly the training for the digital scanning, integration of different scanning systems, software, and treatment planning. Thanks for your help.

Thanks to you for your trust and friendship Maurice and for the nice oportunity!!
Lets go fishing soon!!

Alvaro; Great presentation my friend. Compliments. Well thought out treatment plan and excellent display of the use of digital technologies. Thanks Maurice

The CBCT company i recommend is Carestream for the quality of the products, service and warranty. They have different models. Having said that this scan was generated with an older ILUMA machine which is now out of the market. The software used for this case was Simplant 15 Pro with Dual scan, optical and Bone graft module. There are different great softwares in the market that you could use to do this, Simplant is the leader in my opinion and has great implant libraries and functions and guided systems. Alternative softwares? Anatomage and 360 Imaging.

Madeson Basie - (10/16/2013 12:08 PM)

which CBCT are you using? Which software ? Simplant?

Alvaro Ordonez - (10/16/2013 12:03 PM)

Gracias Dr Castano, no, este es el unico sistema de Zirconia que utilizo y estoy muy contento con el, de hecho ya encargue algunos implantes de dos piezas. La mayoria de amigos academicos europeos que utilizan zirconia a quienes les pregunte hace varios anos sobre los diferentes sistemas me recomendaron este sistema, tuve la oportunidad de visitar al Dr Peker Sendalli en Istambul en varias oportunidades donde pude ver lo que estaba haciendo con este sistema y asi decidi implementarlo en mi oficina.

Real Time / Dynamic Guided Surgery in Fully Edentulous Patients
Implant treatment is one of the most exciting areas of dental therapy. Within the last 30 years, we have been able to develop and discover new techniques, instruments, software and equipment that have made this therapy more secure and predictable, such as the CBCT and the guided surgery, today with the guided systems we are able to have our implants “in the right” place considering the bone, the prosthesis, the biomechanics, and the esthetics. This lecture will show you step-by-step how guided surgery has evolved in dentistry today and we can achieve more predictable results even with immediate extraction and immediate implant placement.

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

Esthetic Tissue Reconstruction Around Implants - Part 2 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.

“The Full Arch Patient”; A Fully Digital Affair
Guided Surgery (GS) is a concept where you are guided by the rehabilitation needs of your patient to perform the implant surgery procedure based on all the info that we process via planning software that are loaded with digital files coming from intra-oral scanning (IOS) and cone beam computed tomography (CBCT). After planning the case, we print a surgical guide or stent to perform the surgery, this technique allows us to do it flap or flapless in a complete secure environment, quicker and more precise if we compare to "freehand" surgery. However, we have to be careful because not all the systems are the same; those who use scoops as reductors are less precise than the "scoopless", no matter which system we use we have to be clear to understand that all the classic concepts of osseointegration are not erased by guided surgery, especially bone physiology.

Esthetic Management for Compromised Extraction Sites - Part 1 of 2 Premium Member Content

Esthetic Management for Compromised Extraction Sites - Part 1 of 2
Missing soft tissue is the main reason for compromised results in the aesthetic zone. But since the soft tissue has to be supported by a sufficient amount of bone, our focus has also to be on bone. Due to the fact that no bone-preservation technique (at the time of tooth extraction) available today, gives us the perfect result we need, augmentation procedures are still needed. Appropriate bone and soft tissue engineering in all three dimensions enhances the aesthetic performance of long-lasting restorations that blend in well and emerge from the periimplant sulcus in harmony with the neighboring teeth.

Soft Tissue Enhancement After Implant Placement

Soft Tissue Enhancement After Implant Placement
Soft tissue management is one of the key factors for successful implant restoration. Esthetics can be strongly influenced by the conditions of the peri-implant tissue. Substantial knowledge of tissue anatomy and biology is a fundamental prerequisite for surgical success. The present chapter introduces different techniques to improve the appearance of the soft tissue after implant placement. Cases of repositioned flaps, FGGs, and CTGs are presented along with biological considerations. It was our intention to present various indications and options to the clinician to achieve an increased amount of peri-implant KG or connective tissue thickness.

Improving Implant Framework

Improving Implant Framework
Passive fit of implant frameworks is related in part to the accuracy of the mastercast. A method of fabricating a verification stent to check the accuracy of the master cast prior to waxing and casting the implant framework is discussed. The methods utilize routinely available materials and do not require any special instrumentation or equipment. The stent can be fabricated either by the laboratory or the dentist.
