15. Crestal Core Elevation with Immediate Implant Placement: A New Technique By Nabil Beaini, Mabel Salas, Michael Umaki, Charles Cobb
Implant placement in maxillary posterior sites presents many challenges to clinicians. In those posterior segments many factors should be considered and these include: sinus anatomy, ridge width, interocclusal and interdental spaces. Pneumatization of the maxillary sinus is the major complicating factor; in some cases, ridge height dictates whether the placement of implants at the time of sinus augmentation will be possible or not. This case report presents a technique of a crestal core elevation into the maxillary sinus followed by placement of a dental implant.
21. A Novel Technique of Impression Making of CAD/CAM Custom Abutments When Fabricating Multi-Unit Implant Prostheses By Jan K. Pietruski, Malgorzata D. Pietruska, Robert B. Kerstein, Julian Osorio
This manuscript details the clinical steps and advantages of a novel CAD/CAM custom abutment impression making procedure. CAD/CAM technology makes it possible to create matched abutment duplicates that when used intraorally and simultaneously in the laboratory, help to counteract many typical master cast implant replica positional inaccuracies.
35. Peri-Implant Bone Defect Resolution Following a Free Gingival Graft: A Case Report with Radiographic Follow Up By Daniel Gober, Taeheon Kang
There are multiple treatment options to consider when presented with a case of peri-implantitis. Both non-surgical therapy, including antibiotic administration and subgingival debridement, and surgical therapy including open flap debridement, resective osseous surgery, regenerative surgery, and implant removal, have been proposed as treatment alternatives. The goal of all of these procedures is to control inflammation and establish an environment that is amenable to long term health and maintenance.
43. Immediate Implants: Treatment Planning and Surgical Placement By Abdulgani Azzaldeen, Abu-Hussein Muhamad, Sarafianou Aspasia
Immediate implants are positioned in the course of surgical extraction of the tooth to be replaced. The percentage success of such procedures varies among authors from 92.7-98.0%. The main indication of immediate implantation is the replacement of teeth with pathologies not amenable to treatment. Its advantages with respect to delayed implantation include reduced postextraction alveolar bone resorption, a shortening of the rehabilitation treatment time, and the avoidance of a second surgical intervention.
