The Socket Shield Technique - Have the Rules of the Game Changed in Aesthetic Zone Implant Therapy? Premium Member Content

The Socket Shield Technique - Have the Rules of the Game Changed in Aesthetic Zone Implant Therapy?
Implant therapy is in the age of being increasingly aesthetically driven, not merely restorative. With the increasing popularity of immediate implants, particularly with anterior tooth extraction, the relevance of socket changes following extraction has come to the fore. Contrary to what was originally believed, the installation of an immediate implant does not arrest bone loss, and immediate implants in the aesthetic zone are prone to recession of bone and soft tissue as a result of bundle bone resorption which is obligatory with tooth extraction.

Complete Management of the Implant Site: From Simple Cases to Complex Situations Premium Member Content

Complete Management of the Implant Site: From Simple Cases to Complex Situations
The health and the structure of the peri-implant tissue is vital for a long term prognosis of aesthetic and functional dental treatments. The prevalence of peri-implant diseases and recessions is a problem that must be overcome by a perfect treatment planning, along with a step-by-step design of the future restorations. When the clinician places an implant, he must consider the 3D positioning regarding the hard and soft tissue. When one decide to restore an implant, he must be aware of the gingival volume and it’s position. In this presentation, we want to show fully documented cases, from bone grafting, soft tissue enhancement, to final restorations.

Current Concepts in Bioactivity and Regeneration Premium Member Content

Current Concepts in Bioactivity and Regeneration
An injury to the tissue instantly stimulates the healing process. To heal properly, we need three elements: scaffolds, cells and growth factors. If one of these three elements are missing there will be no tissue regeneration. Plasma rich in growth factors (Endoret® (PRGF®) technology, enables clinicians to apply autologous growth factors and a fibrin scaffold in a simple, safe and effective method. The Endoret® (PRGF®) stimulates the tissue-building cells to achieve regeneration. An optimal alveolar regeneration is characterized by fast haemostasis, adequate inflammation, stem cell mobilization and differentiation, rapid soft tissue closure of the socket and correct tissue regeneration. The adequate management of the extraction socket will determine the final outcome of implant-supported restorations.

The Role of Autogenous Bone Plates In Critical Size Defects Premium Member Content

The Role of Autogenous Bone Plates In Critical Size Defects
A critical size defect is one that will not heal spontaneously and requires further surgical intervention to correct the situation. Those defects outside the normal scope of work also need that extra something to achieve an ideal result. Autogenous bone plates using the split bone block technique (SBBT) is one of those techniques that allows one to achieve outstanding results. This lecture will look at the benefits of autogenous bone over synthetic materials and compare solid blocks to SBBT to determine the best treatment options. The management and decision-making tree are comprehensively covered to allow the clinician to develop a structured workflow to help plan and execute these techniques. Tips and tricks will be discussed as well as indications and contraindications. The new technique of bone bending will also be shared as other exciting topics.

Soft Tissue Solutions to Bone Deficiencies; Minimally invasive Concepts Part 1 Premium Member Content

Soft Tissue Solutions to Bone Deficiencies; Minimally invasive Concepts Part 1
Soft Tissue minimally invasive procedures can often be utilized to reconstruct large defects in the anterior region rather than rebuild the site with Bone which would entail multiple procedures over several months and increase the morbidity for the patients as well as risk for the clinician. This presentation highlights numerous soft tissue procedures that can augment large deficiencies in the esthetic zone as a preference over bone augmentation. Roll, pedicle grafts, and tuberosity tissues can be predictably utilized to maximize our results and limit time and risk for our patients. Tooth replacement, implant failure restitution and immediate implant placement SVG grafting will be reviewed in detail.

Ortho/Perio Treatment on Impacted Upper Central Incisors Premium Member Content

Ortho/Perio Treatment on Impacted Upper Central Incisors
Upper central incisor impaction has functional, esthetic and psychologic implications. Causes of the impaction can be divided in obstructive and traumatic. Among the first ones are: supernumerary teeth, odontomas and mesiodens. Among the second group are facial trauma received in the primary or early mixed dentition. In close relation as well with root dilaceration. Other less common reasons for impaction include: crowding, endocrine alterations, bone diseases, genetic conditions, extraction or ankylosis of primary incisors. The impacted upper central incisor can be classified depending on: mesio-distal position, occluso-gingival position, midline angulation, degree of root formation. If early intervention is not enough. There is the need for surgical exposure and orthodontic traction. Among possible treatment complications are: esthetic gingival sequelae, ankylosis and root resorption
