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.
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...
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 32-year-old patient with missing central and lateral incisor presented significant loss of hard and soft tissues, and the midline deviated to the left. A Porcelain-fused-to-metal crown over implant with a GBR and a collagen membrane on #21 FDI (#9 US) was chosen.
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.
A 54-year-old man presented with missing right lower teeth and ridge deficiency. Horizontal and vertical augmentation by GBR (Guided Bone Regeneration) was carried out using the “Tenting Screw Technique”. Two implants and a free gingival graft were placed.
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.
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...
