Description

In the last 20 years, implant dentistry has moved from “experimental” into mainstream dental therapy for the replacement of missing teeth. In many cases, implant-supported prostheses are superior to traditional fixed partial dentures. Despite all the advances in technology, providing dental implant therapy to patients with atrophic edentulous remains a challenge. Most commonly, this is dealt with by bone grafting procedures to augment the ridge volume. This modality often delays treatment and subjects the patient to additional surgeries, morbidity and risk of complications. Not all patients who desire treatment with dental implants are willing to undergo the bone and tissue augmentation procedures that may be required to allow the placement of traditionally-surfaced screw-type implants. As a result, these patients may elect other, less ideal, prosthetic options. In this presentation, Dr. Reznick discusses his 10-year experience with a unique, porous-surfaced endosseous dental implant that was developed specifically for these less-than-ideal clinical situations. This surface was borrowed from orthopedics, and is now the preferred surface for hip, knee, and other joint replacement implants. He will discuss the scientific development of this implant and the results of clinical studies of its long-term success rate. In addition, current thoughts on the concept of “crown-root ratio” in relation to dental implants will be presented. The clinical procedures for placement of this type of implant will be discussed, along with the use of the “indirect sinus lift” which is ideally suited for this implant design. Use of this porous-surfaced dental implant should be part of the armamentarium of the implant surgeon when faced with a patient with severe bony atrophy.

Objectives

Objectives
Be familiar with the clinical research in the development and use of porous-surfaced dental implants. Know the clinical indications and contraindications for use of porous surfaced dental implants. Understand how the concept of “crown-root ratio” needs to be modified when discussing fixed prostheses on dental implants. Understand the clinical techniques for the placement of porous surfaced dental implants. Be familiar with the use of sinus floor augmentation (“indirect sinus lift”) as an alternative to open sinus grafting.
