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.

Fifty Years of Interdisciplinary Site Development: Lessons & Guidelines from Periodontal Prosthesis
Just as "osseointegration" became synonymous with successful restoration of function in the fully edentulous patient during the 1980s, the term "implant site development" has become intricately associated in the 1990s with the techniques used to achieve esthetic results with implants in the partially edentulous patient. This article explores the roots of the concept of site development within the philosophy and principles of periodontal prosthesis. In addition, the myriad of techniques that areā€¦

Restoring Facial Aesthetics and Function with Implant Overdentures

Restoring Facial Aesthetics and Function with Implant Overdentures
Implant supported overdentures are fast becoming the choice of treatment for edentulous patients as they provide various advantages over the conventional dentures; most importantly they are a reliable and simple solution to denture retention and stability problems. This article discusses aesthetics and function provided with implant borne Overdentures in Maxillary and Mandibular arches.

Implant Risks, Complications, and Solutions in the Esthetic Zone - Part 1 of 3
Immediate tooth replacement therapy has become a mainstream treatment modality for single tooth implants in the esthetic zone. The balance between achieving primary stability, implant diameter, and gap distance is a delicate dance yet essential for survival and esthetics. However, esthetic risks and complications exist such as apical socket perforation, loss of labial plate thickness over time, and loss of the interdental papilla due to proximity issues with tooth-to-implant distance following placement. An inverted body-shift implant design concept as solutions to these challenges will be presented and supported by studies that scientifically supports, validates, and reinforces the biologic principles in design that ultimately enhances esthetic outcomes in modern day implantology.

Regenerative Procedures for Implant Site Optimization: Establishing the Perio-Implant Interface Premium Member Content

Regenerative Procedures for Implant Site Optimization: Establishing the Perio-Implant Interface
Emerging concepts in implant dentistry have allowed bone preservation to become a reality, thus reducing the need for extensive augmentation procedures. Nevertheless, clinicians are still confronted with atrophic defects that require complex regenerative strategies for dental implant rehabilitation. This presentation will focus on some of the essential elements for a predictable regenerative protocol in implant site development. A discussion will include the use of defect topography as a guide in choosing a suitable augmentation technique. Several considerations that allow for tension free wound closure will be reviewed. Furthermore, an evidence based approach in graft material selection will be presented. Clinical cases will then be reviewed, to demonstrate how to integrate the presented principles into daily clinical practice.
