Dr. Fabbri discusses the benefits of the new TiUltra and Xeal. He explains the concept of mucointegration and the clinical benefits it offers. This idea of combining the benefits of the On1 abutment with the new surface allows undisturbed soft tissue healing with mucointegration.
In this work the effect of surface anodization on soft tissue integration was evaluated by comparing anodized (Xeal™) and machined surface titanium discs as culture substrates for human gingival epithelial cells (HGEPp) and primary human gingival fibroblasts (HFIB-G). HFIB-G cells...
This publication contains the proceedings of the Oral Rehabilitation Symposium held at the University of Sydney in June 2018. 21 chapters cover findings on implant osseointegration, occlusion, orofacial pain, TMD and jaw function.
A 30-year-old female patient who lost tooth #13 FDI (#6 US). She reported the traumatic extraction of the canine, which resulted in a significant vertical bone loss of 3 mm and an advanced horizontal lingual defect.
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 45-year-old female patient who was referred re-failing post crown in tooth #21 FDI (#9 US), multiple failed veneers, generalized tooth wear and loss of OVD. The treatment involved the extraction of the root and immediate implant placement with a Connective Tissue Graft.
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...
A 26-year-old female patient is treated following the "MeteenDoor"- protocol. This Dutch protocol includes the placement of a bone substitute simultaneously with Immediate Implant Placement and Provisionalization (IIPP) reducing the horizontal buccal bone changes.
A 33-year-old female patient came to the clinic with the desire to replace her missing teeth. The opposing teeth had moved into the gaps. The implants were placed by using a surgical guide. After completion of the orthodontic treatment, the final restorations were fabricated.
A 26-year-old female patient wanted to have her teeth straightened. This clinical case describes the extractions of the lower deciduous second molars, followed by immediate implant placement. After the completion of the orthodontic treatment the final restorations were placed.
