This is a chapter by chapter journey through the multiple aspects of the required planning and treatment of patients who need a fixed complete denture and associated crown to fully restore their oral well-being.
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...
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.
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 major health concern of Rapa Nui’s (Easter Island's) indigenous population is the high incidence of edentulism. Watch what motivated Drs. Rosenberg and Higuchi to realize this life-changing humanitarian project together with FOR.
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. 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
A 18-year-old female patient diagnosed with Ectodermal Dysplasia at a young age. Presented aplasias in upper and lower jaw, primary teeth persisting, low smile line, deep bite. The treatment involved implant placement, angulated and straight Multi-Unit Abutments.
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.
