    6. Custom Zirconia Ridge Augmentation Matrix (CZRAM) for Implant Site Development: A Report of Two Cases

    This is a report of two cases describing the use of custom zirconia ridge augmentation matrices (CZRAM) to effectively augment deficient alveolar ridges prior to dental implant placement. 3D computer-aided design (CAD) of customized zirconia rigid space maintenance devices was carried out using a baseline cone beam CT (CBCT) scan of the deficient ridges, and the devices were milled from partially-sintered zirconia blocks using a five-axis dental mill.

    16. Repair of Dental Implant Induced Inferior Alveolar Nerve Injuries with Dehydrated Human Amnion-Chorion Membranes: A Case Series

    Dental implant treatment has become a common treatment modality for the replacement of missing teeth. As the number of implants placed annually continues to increase, so too has the incidence of iatrogenic nerve damage secondary to implant placement. Over the past decade, a handful of conservative protocols have been proposed for the treatment of neural maladies following the placement of dental implants with varying degrees of success. Recent advances in biologic growth factor technology have introduced products that may serve as adjuncts in the treatment of neural injury.

    30. Full Mouth Rehabilitation with Immediate Implants and Fixed Prosthetics: A Surgeons’ Prospect and Critical Review

    Dental implants have become the preferable choice of restoring the missing teeth for the patient, which made the dental professionals look for the best implant systems, advanced research, and techniques for constant improve in the quality of patients life. Dental implants can be placed immediately after the extraction – “Immediate implants” or can be placed after complete healing of the extraction site – Delayed Implants. This article is about the author’s experience with full mouth immediate implants and explained the critical factors that influenced the outcome.

    36. Extra-Short Implants for Rehabilitation of Atrophic Ridges: A Retrospective Study with up to 5 Years of Follow-Up

    The bone augmentation techniques suggested by literature including onlay bone grafts, guided bone regeneration (GBR), maxillary sinus elevation and distraction osteogenesis (DO) have been proved effective in regaining bone volume. However these approach techniques can present multiple complications and morbidity after surgery, with prolonged treatment duration and extra costs. Short implants could be a simpler, cheaper and faster alternative than augmentation procedures, if they can be shown to result in similar success rates. Recently the use of extra-short implants (6 mm) has been reported with good outcomes 5-8 and promising results have been published in comparison with alveolar bone augmentation techniques.

    48. Leveraging the Dental Hygienist to Promote the Periodontal Practice

    Periodontal referral is declining, and a dental office must market itself to alert potential patients to its existence. Offering a free cleaning to new patients is a marketing tool that pays long-term dividends in return visits for dental hygiene or periodontal surgery. The number of active dental hygiene patients is a measure of the practice’s financial health, as this service accounts for 40-60% of the office’s income.
