A classification scheme that systematizes the wide range of regenerative potential of common extraction site topographies is presented. Within this system, the parameters for immediate implant placement and preliminary ridge augmentation are discussed. In addition, a new adjunctive role for orthodontic extrusion is introduced. This approach is intended to(More)
Successful implant placement at the time of extraction has been documented. Implant placement at the time of extraction was initially performed as a two-stage procedure often with barrier membranes and sophisticated second-stage surgical uncoverings. The authors describe the next generation of this technique, including atraumatic tooth removal with(More)
A load-free healing period has been advocated as a prerequisite to achieving osseointegration. This article reports two cases in which immediate loading of a specially designated additional, or "expendable," set of titanium root-form implants was successfully utilized to support provisional fixed restorations in the maxilla and the mandible. This(More)
A single-tooth implant in the esthetic region has good potential for success, but it is still challenging to restore multiple-tooth defects with implant-supported prostheses that resemble the natural dentition. This article suggests a strategy to provide a more predictable protocol for esthetic implant treatment for multiple-tooth defects using the root(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to compare the clinical efficacy of an anorganic bovine bone graft particulate to that of a calcium phosphosilicate putty alloplast for socket preservation. MATERIALS AND METHODS Thirty teeth were extracted from 24 patients. The sockets were debrided and received anorganic bovine bone mineral (BOV, n=12), calcium(More)
BACKGROUND Socket grafting with a bone graft substitute immediately after extraction is essential to preserve the ridge architecture for implant placement. Several bone graft substitutes have been tested for their ability to effectively regenerate osseous tissue in the sockets. Evidence suggests that socket bone typically regenerates during a period of 6 to(More)
The objective of this proof-of-principle study was to examine the potential for improved bone regenerative outcomes in maxillary sinus augmentation procedures when recombinant human platelet-derived growth factor BB (0.3 mg/mL) is combined with particulate anorganic bovine bone mineral. The surgical outcomes in all treated sites were uneventful at 6 to 8(More)
Introduction Immediate implant placement is a well-recognized and successful treatment option following tooth removal.1 Although the success rates for both immediate and delayed implant techniques are comparable, the literature reports that one can expect there to be recession of the buccal / facial gingiva of at least 1 mm following immediate implant(More)
