NEW! The Internal Sinus Lift with SynthoGraft® – Dr. Shadi Daher [HD]

Posted on in Webcast Replays, Introductory, Scientific Lectures

On June 6, 2020, Shadi Daher, DMD, FICD, AAOMS Fellow, presented a live webcast discussing internal sinus lifts with SynthoGraft®, a synthetic bone augmentation material. In his presentation, Dr. Daher discussed the anatomy, histology, instrumentation, and clinical techniques of several representative clinical treatments with their long-term radiographic results.

SynthoGraft® is a revolutionary Beta-Tricalcium Phosphate material that offers a unique structure that provides initial stability, while its nanometer-scale porosity allows for rapid vascularization and subsequent resorption when mixed with the patient’s own blood.

Unmatched Clinical Capabilities of TRINIA® – Drs. Vincent J. Morgan and Estevam Bonfante [HD]

Posted on in Webcast Replays, Introductory, Scientific Lectures

On May 27, 2020, Vincent J. Morgan, DMD, and Estevam Bonfante, DDS, MS, Ph. D, co-presented a live webcast discussing TRINIA®, a metal-free ceramic matrix CAD/CAM material.

During the first portion, Dr. Morgan introduces TRINIA® as a fiber-reinforced resin with exceptional clinical capabilities and unique properties, which has been successfully used as a dental CAD/CAM material for over ten years.

In the second portion, Dr. Bonfante of The University of São Paulo, Bauru College of Dentistry, Department of Prosthodontics, discusses the challenges of current restorative materials for both short and long-span prostheses and the conclusions of the EAO’s 2018 consensus report, about the unacceptable fracture rates of ceramics. Dr. Bonfante concludes that there is not only an opportunity but also a real need for novel metal-free CAD/CAM restorative materials such as TRINIA®.

During the conclusion, Dr. Morgan presents multiple real-world clinical cases exemplifying TRINIA’s unmatched clinical capabilities and its potential to revolutionize restorative dentistry. He demonstrates that with TRINIA®, patient satisfaction can be achieved with less time, fewer clinical appointments, greater flexibility, and significant financial benefits for both you and your patients.

One-Stage Placement of Two Adjacent 4.5 x 6.0mm SHORT® Implants for Mandibular Premolars

Posted on in Introductory, Case Studies, Techniques

This case study and technique video demonstrates the planning and one-stage placement of two adjacent 4.5 x 6.0mm SHORT® Implants for a 66-year-old male patient. The countersinking of the osteotomies to prevent inadvertent drifting of the reamers, and the use of Guide Pins, Paralleling Pins, Bone Expanders, and Hand Reamers as guides during osteotomy preparation are also demonstrated.

Implant-Level Impression and Insertion of a Nine-Unit TRINIA® Telescopic Restoration on Four 21-Year-Old Implants

Posted on in Case Studies, Techniques

This case study video demonstrates the full-arch implant-level transfer impression and insertion of a nine-unit mandibular TRINIA telescopic restoration on four 21-year-old implants for an 87-year-old male patient in only two restorative clinical visits.

One-Stage Immediate Placement of a 5.0 x 6.0mm SHORT® Implant for a Mandibular Molar

Posted on in Introductory, Case Studies, Techniques

This case study and technique video demonstrates the planning, osteotomy preparation, and one-stage immediate placement of a 5.0 x 6.0mm SHORT® Implant for a mandibular molar. Additionally, the countersinking of the osteotomy to facilitate the seating of the temporary abutment is demonstrated.

Two-Stage Implant Placement for a Congenitally Missing Maxillary Premolar

Posted on in Introductory, Case Studies, Techniques

This case study and technique video demonstrates the case planning, osteotomy preparation, and two-stage placement of a 4.5 x 6.0mm SHORT® Implant for a congenitally missing maxillary premolar for a 26-year-old female patient. In addition to Latch Reamers, Hand Reamers with a Threaded Instrument Adapter were used for the preparation of the osteotomy, which offers better control — especially in thin bone.

Immediate Placement of a Maxillary Lateral Incisor

Posted on in Introductory, Case Studies, Techniques

This case study and technique video demonstrates the case planning, extraction, osteotomy preparation, and immediate placement of a 4.0 x 8.0mm implant with a 2.5mm well for a maxillary lateral incisor. Additionally, the technique of changing the Pilot Drill trajectory while drilling on a slope is demonstrated. This technique facilitates ideal implant placement. For the preparation of the osteotomy, Hand Reamers were used with a Threaded Instrument Adapter, which offers better control — especially in thin bone.

Bicon SHORT® Implants and TRINIA® on Three

Posted on in Scientific Lectures

In this video, Rolf Ewers, MD, DMD, Ph.D. discusses the revolutionary TRINIA® on Three technique and its long-term results. After experiencing over six years of reliable results with full-arch TRINIA® prostheses supported by four SHORT® Implants, he decided to modify the study design in 2016 to follow full-arch TRINIA® prostheses supported by only three 4.0 x 5.0mm SHORT® Implants. He attributes their success to the exceptional clinical capabilities of Bicon SHORT® Implants and the unique properties of the non-rigid metal-free TRINIA® CAD/CAM material.

Two-Stage Placement of a 4.0 x 8.0mm Maxillary Canine Implant and its Restoration with an Integrated Abutment Crown™ (IAC)

Posted on in Introductory, Case Studies, Techniques

This case study and technique video demonstrates the case planning, osteotomy preparation, and placement of a 4.0 x 8.0mm implant with a 2.5mm well in a maxillary canine site using a collagen membrane and SynthoGraft™ bone grafting procedure. After four months of healing, its uncovering, implant-level impression, and restoration with an Integrated Abutment Crown™ (IAC) are shown. Additionally, the modification of the adjacent 15-year-old lateral incisor IAC to improve gingival aesthetics is demonstrated.
