Giacomo Fabbri: New anodized surfaces designed for tissue integration at every level

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.

Evaluation of anodized surfaces for improved soft tissue integration

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...

Two Stage Implant Placement for a Failing Central Incisor with Ankylosis to Labial Bone Plate.

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.

Restoration of a ‘Failing’ Tooth with an Implant in the Aesthetic Zone

A 41-year-old female patient with a failing post crown in tooth #21 FDI (#9 US) with root fracture and infection, the treatment involved implant placement with GBR and soft tissue augmentation.

Multi-disciplinary rehabilitation of an agenesic upper lateral incisor

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.

France Lambert & Eric Rompen: Proper soft tissue handling to improve the outcome of implant restorations

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...

A novel approach for soft tissue management in the anterior region

A 33-year-old male patient's chief complaint was a missing lateral incisor which had been extracted several years earlier. A one-stage implant procedure simultaneous to connective tissue grafting and the use of a slim healing abutment was planned.

Paul Rosen: Successful treatment of peri-implantitis: advisability and predictability

The presentation reviews the measures and options for treatment of peri-implantitis. Dr Rosen discusses that the etiologies to periodontitis and peri-implantitis share a number of common analogies, and advocates comparable treatment approaches. The initiator isn't always plaque...
