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.
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 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. Albrektsson reviews the success and failure of oral implants related to patient influences, surgical techniques, implant designs and the locations of implant placement. The literature behind the success of the Ti-Unite surface oral implants is reviewed demonstrating the long-te
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...
Sinus grafting is recognized as an effective treatment modality with high implant survival rates having been reported. The lateral approach technique entails opening a lateral window in the bone and elevating the sinus membrane from the inferior aspect of the maxillary si
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.
Rehabilitation with implants in the posterior maxilla is challenging due to the rapid reduction of the available bone which is the result of physiological resorption of the alveolar process together with increased pneumatisation of the maxillary sinus. Augmentation of the sinus...
