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...
A 26-year-old female patient is treated following the "MeteenDoor"- protocol. This Dutch protocol includes the placement of a bone substitute simultaneously with Immediate Implant Placement and Provisionalization (IIPP) reducing the horizontal buccal bone changes.
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 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.
