Leisurely Learning in Cape Cod: Secrets of Implant Success
Dental implant restoration has become the treatment of choice for most missing and non-restorable teeth. From Branemark’s early hybrid restoration perched on 5-6 counter sunk machine screws to current concepts of feature added shapes and surfaces, and complete hard and soft tissue augmentation there has been a steady march of improvement in surgical techniques. Beneath the development of these procedures lie basic concepts of anatomy, biomechanics and wound healing which hold the keys to success of a long term reconstruction.
- Critical areas of concern: evaluation and treatment planning- focus on key problems.
- Diagnostic aids: Stents, templates, radiology and common “dental” sense. When you need it-when you don’t.
- Extraction technique- preventive bone augmentation, selection and use of barrier membranes and waiting times.
- How many and when-biomechanics, biology, and site selection.
- Where do I go when there’s not enough? Bone and soft tissue grafting.
- Implant placement-anatomy of teeth, implants, and bone.
- Finishing procedures- the art of the uncover procedure-advantages of the two stage implant procedure.
