There are many factors to consider concerning immediate implant placement in the esthetic zone, particularly with regard to the biology of remodeling of the anterior maxillary buccal plate. This case series discusses technique options for autogenous SCTGs with immediate implant placement.
Presenting three clinical cases that illustrate possibilities for advanced immediate loading using different implant designs, this article demonstrates treatment of severe bone defects and the facilitation of placing implants in regenerated bone that can be immediately loaded.
Flapless extraction and immediate implant placement in the esthetic zone using CT-guided surgery were performed simultaneously, with placement of a CAD/CAM patient-specific abutment and non-occlusal function provisional in a single visit.
This article examines the role of the implant abutment in supporting both esthetics and technical success. Included are discussions regarding cemented versus screw-retained restorations, material selection for anterior tooth replacement, and design parameters.
There are a number of considerations regarding occlusion when performing dental implant restorations. This CE article provides an overview of these issues, along with examples of images depicting various clinical situations.
Hiossen’s ET III SA Implant has a sandblasted and acid-etched surface to shorten bone-healing time and improve secondary attachment force. The ET III’s optimal body design features a number of different threads that help to prevent bone necrosis, reinforce fixture strength and stability, and facilitate easy path change.
