Ulises Calderon/Stefan P. Hicklin: the Straumann® PURE Ceramic Implant and the digital prosthetic workflow

By | November 14th, 2016|Clinical Cases, Dental Implants|

 

 

The introduction of oxide ceramics in dentistry provided new treatment options for patients and clinicians. To date, zirconia has shown superior biomechanical properties compared to other oxide ceramics. Since it was introduced in dentistry, zirconia has been used as a framework material for all ceramic crowns and fixed dental prostheses (FDP), as well as [...]

Arndt Happe: Immediate restoration in the esthetic zone (Straumann® Bone Level Tapered Implant)

By | November 10th, 2016|Clinical Cases, Dental Implants|

 

 

The patient, a 30 year-old female in good general systemic health, had experienced unsuccessful endodontic treatment and a failed restoration of tooth 22 (Figs. 1, 2). The remaining root was insufficient for retention of a crown and showed periapical complications. The patient had a high lip line when smiling, showing both the papillae and the [...]

Jochen K. Alius: Immediate single tooth replacement in the anterior maxilla (Straumann® Bone Level Tapered Implant)

By | November 10th, 2016|Clinical Cases, Dental Implants|

 

 

The patient, a 62 year-old female, non-smoker, and in good general health, underwent multiple dental treatments in the past. She came to my practice with an unsatisfactory tooth 21, and wanted this tooth replaced. 21 was previously root-filled and restored with a post and metal-ceramic crown. Radiographically, a gap is seen between the root [...]

This female patient with an edentulous maxilla presented at the Dental Clinic of the DPU in Krems, Austria, in January 2014 requesting implant provision. After a comprehensive history was taken and her dental situation assessed (maxilla complete denture, mandible front tooth bridge from 34-44 and model cast with Preci attachments), the general conditions for [...]

Sepehr Zarrine: Immediate screw-retained CAD/CAM provisionalization with an integrated digital approach (Straumann® Guided Surgery)

By | October 21st, 2016|Clinical Cases, Dental Implants, Digital Dentistry|

 

 

Successful immediate implant placement associated with immediate loading remains one of the biggest clinical challenges. In addition to the placement of an implant into a tooth socket concurrently with extraction, the creation of a screw-retained CAD/CAM provisional prosthetic restoration is critical for the esthetic outcome. Currently, the procedure can be achieved using a conventional [...]

Ron Leehacharoenkul: Esthetic tooth replacement (Straumann® Bone Level Implant)

By | October 10th, 2016|Clinical Cases, Dental Implants, Dental Prosthetics|

 

 

Self-Directed Learning (SDL), a process by which individuals take the initiative – with or without the assistance of others – in diagnosing their own learning needs and formulating learning goals, has been identified as an essential skill for clinicians. As dental clinicians, our busy patient schedules and time constraints prevent us from updating our [...]

Adrian Kasaj: Treatment of multiple recessions with a modified coronally advanced flap (botiss mucoderm®)

By | October 9th, 2016|Clinical Cases, Dental Biomaterials|

 

 

A 29-year-old female patient presented at our clinic with the desire for an esthetic improvement of her teeth. Teeth 1.2 to 1.4 showed multiple Miller class I recessions with a particularly deep recession of >6mm at tooth 1.3 (Fig. 1). The patient was healthy with good oral hygiene. She raised concerns against the harvesting of a [...]

Jorge M. Galante: Predictable GBR procedures in sites with high esthetic compromise (botiss Jason® membrane/Straumann® BoneCeramic)

By | October 6th, 2016|Clinical Cases, Dental Biomaterials|

 

 

The patient, a 45 year-old female in good general systemic health, had undergone some unsuccessful dental treatments, with failed restorations resulting in the loss of multiple maxillary teeth. Teeth 1.2 to 2.2 were extracted after failed endodontic treatments and periapical complications. The aim of the patient was to replace the removable partial prosthesis with [...]

Algirdas Puišys: Mucosal tissue thickening around bone-level implants (botiss mucoderm®)

By | October 6th, 2016|Clinical Cases, Dental Biomaterials|

 

 

A 54-year old patient with a missing tooth 3.6 came to our clinic and asked for a restoration of an implant-borne crown. He demonstrated good oral and systemic health; no significant health problems that might influence the treatment were marked. Intraorally, the tooth gap in region 3.6 was noted. The alveolar ridge was slightly [...]

Jochen Mellinghoff: Esthetic advantages offered by 3.3 mm diameter ceramic implants for anterior dental restoration (Straumann® PURE Ceramic Implant)

By | September 26th, 2016|Clinical Cases, Dental Implants|

 

 

The restoration with zirconia implants is discussed due to improved material properties such as low plaque affinity and good biocompatibility as an alternative to titanium implants. This case report describes an esthetically appealing restoration in the premolar region of a young woman. Despite slight bone and soft tissue resorption, implantation without complicated bone augmentation was [...]
