Learn the indications, contraindications, assessment and diagnosis of immediate implant placement and provisionalization in the first of a 5-part series on this controversial topic. Moderator Joe Kan, Jose Navarro and the expert panel share many clinical insights.
Ceramic implant experts, Markus Blatz, Jens Tartsch and Michael Gahlert discuss the modernization of materials and implant design transforming the reliability of zirconia implants for an established treatment option of today.
Contrasting the ideal clinical situation with peri-implant disease, experts elucidate our understanding of peri-implant disease and its impact. Learn how to prevent, diagnose and treat biological complications in this highly interactive session moderated by France Lambert.
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.
A 37-year-old female patient presented with 5mm periodontal pocket in right central incisor with moderate periodontal inflammation. After CBCT scan was discovered external root resorption in the buccal aspect which condemned this element.
Dr. Canullo focuses on the triggering factors and etiology of peri-implantitis. He discusses the missing links between non-surgical, resective, and regenerative treatment of peri-implantitis and long-term results.
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...
