Dr. Krivitsky discusses the importance of site development for implant placement. She reviews the pattern of resorption following extraction and the important role bone graft plays in preserving the bone architecture. Her focus is on two specific challenges...
A valuable reference for everyone involved in implant placement or implant restoration. 18 chapters from diagnosis to oral hygiene maintenance, 950+ photographs, over 40 videos, end of chapter self-assessment quizzes and 1,000+ scientific and literature references.
A major health concern of Rapa Nui’s (Easter Island's) indigenous population is the high incidence of edentulism. Watch what motivated Drs. Rosenberg and Higuchi to realize this life-changing humanitarian project together with FOR.
A 55-year-old female patient with missing maxillary premolars, class IV recession on the adjacent tooth, pneumatized sinus. She was treated with simultaneous sinus elevation, implant placement, guided bone regeneration, and soft tissue grafting.
Dr. Wöhrle discusses how to use digital workflows in your implant practice, utilizing data acquisition by means of CBCT and surface scanning to create predictable implant treatment. He uses clinical examples to demonstrate how to use digital tools for treatment planning and using s...
Dr. Malo discusses the evolution of the All-on-4® treatment concept as it has been the primary focus of his career. He explains the reasons for its development and how his vision of implant dentistry has shifted from large grafting solutions to the placement of implants where bone
A 53-year-old female patient with #22 FDI (#10 US), which was endodontically treated and discolored, was esthetically unpleasing. The tooth was hopeless due to root fracture. A treatment plan was formulated to replace the non-vital tooth with an implant.
A 28-year-old female patient presented a Class II division 1 malocclusion. The maxilla was prognathic with pro-inclination of the incisors; the mandible was retrognathic. The treatment included orthodontic alignment followed by orthognathic bimaxillary surgery.
Unstable soft tissue seal at implants favors an inflammatory reaction that can lead to facial recession, pocket formation and loss of bone support. The more stable and tight the soft tissue seal, the more predictable the outcome of implant rehabilitation. A major criterion influenc
Due to bone resorbtion in atrophic maxillary cases, low bone density and reduced bone height is commonly presented in the posterior region. Different techniques have been used to solve these cases, with or without bone augmentation. The pterygomaxillary region has been found to...
In this presentation different ways to treat severe cases will be presented. The presentation will focus on the rationale and long term results for sinus elevation and implant placement in the extremely resorbed maxillae.
