Surgical and Radiologic Anatomy for Oral Implantology

Louie Al-Faraje

Anatomical textbooks and atlases often fail to meet the clinical demands of defining intraoperative structures for oral implantologists because of the overwhelmingly detailed minutia. Because certain anatomical landmarks are hard to illustrate in a diagram format, students and professionals can be confused when confronted with actual specimens in the dissecting room or in the operatory. This book, however, shows the structures of the maxilla, the mandible, and the nasal cavity as they actually exist in the dissected or live body, through the presentation of cadaver specimens and clinical cases. Several of the chapters include full-page images of specific cadaver sections with all the relevant anatomical parts labeled for convenience. Cone beam computed tomography images are also presented to show how this technology can be used to measure the bone density, the width of the alveolar ridge, and the exact distance available for implant placement under or above certain anatomical landmarks prior to implant selection. This book will simplify the learning and execution of implant-related surgical procedures in a region of the body that presents special topographic and anatomical difficulties.

Controversial Issues in Implant Dentistry

Federico Hernández Alfaro

Dental implantology has seen a dramatic shift in the last decade for a variety of reasons including the incorporation of 3D tools for diagnosis and treatment planning, new implant surfaces and designs, bioactive materials, tissue engineering techniques, and minimally invasive surgical procedures. The combined effect of these innovations is a new paradigm of implant dentistry that is already changing the way clinicians treat edentulous patients and improving treatment options. Despite these advances within implantology, questions remain about many new techniques and developing technologies. This book focuses on the dynamic parts of this new paradigm that are still evolving—the controversial topics that are still subject to debate. The author asks pressing questions and provides sound assessments.

Oral Implantology Surgical
Procedures Checklist

Louie Al-Faraje

Just as checklists used in the aviation industry dramatically reduce the incidence of human error and provide higher safety and success margins, implant surgery should start with a thorough presurgery check by the surgeon. Surgeons have relied solely on memory for these checks, but the complexity of the information regarding the procedures today makes it difficult to properly deliver it to patients in a consistent, correct, and safe manner. This checklist booklet outlines the proper sequence for surgical procedures, details the setups for necessary instruments, provides postoperative instructions, and even includes a clear roadmap to follow in emergency scenarios that might be encountered during or after surgery. It offers the implant surgeon a standardized approach to ensure that surgical procedures run smoothly and that an extra margin of safety is respected at all times. A built-in collapsible stand facilitates viewing in the treatment room. Washable pages make this book usable even in sterile environments, and when written on in ballpoint pen, the ink can be easily erased with an alcohol wipe.

Atlas of Complications and Failures in Implant Dentistry:
Guidelines for a Therapeutic Approach

Luigi Galasso and Gian Antonio Favero

After nearly three decades of widespread application, implant-prosthetic therapy has been proved to be effective and safe. However, implant treatment modalities cannot be considered entirely free of complications, and there remains a need to reduce the clinical incidence of avoidable errors. Although rare and usually minor, complications in implant dentistry require tested management protocols. The authors detail common complications through clinical case examples and explain the best strategies to optimize treatment outcomes. This practical reference book serves as a guide for diagnosis and treatment of complications and also, more importantly, provides a code of conduct and a philosophy for how to approach complications.

Surgical Complications in
Oral Implantology: Etiology,
Prevention, and Management

Louie Al-Faraje

This exceptional book is designed as a self-instruction guide to the diagnosis, management, and prevention of surgery-related complications in implant dentistry. It functions in two ways: First, it is a valuable resource for the implant surgeon seeking practical and succinct information about how to manage a complication in an emergency setting; and second, it can be read from cover to cover as a primer on implant surgery, from the initial consultation and treatment planning through the restorative phase of treatment. Besides addressing pre-, intra-, and postoperative implant surgery complications, the book also includes a comprehensive treatment-
planning protocol that allows for the early detection of potential surgical complications and how to avoid them. Early detection of complications that are
amenable to rescue therapies may reverse the fate of a failing implant or a bone grafting procedure.

Immediate Dentoalveolar Restoration: Immediate-Loaded Implants
in Compromised Alveolar Sockets

Edited by José Carlos Martins da Rosa

Immediate dentoalveolar restoration (IDR) is a treatment modality for immediate loading of single-tooth dental implants in fresh extraction sockets. This textbook provides a comprehensive step-by-step presentation of the IDR procedures and detailed clinical cases showing IDR used in various clinical situations. IDR reduces the number of interventions by integrating reconstruction of any tissue loss during the same visit as the implant placement and provisional crown fabrication. Predictability of the esthetics is ensured through careful esthetic assessment and use of advanced prosthetic techniques, including platform switching and contouring of the emergence profile. The minimally invasive techniques that are central to IDR are featured throughout. In addition, the authors cover the most important adjunctive topics, such as immediate loading, use of the maxillary tuberosity for bone grafts, and esthetic restoration.

Zygomatic Implants:
The Anatomy Guided Approach

Edited by Carlos Aparicio

Zygomatic implants are only now seeing a strong resurgence of interest because they can provide patients with a fixed dentition in a short amount of time without any grafts, general anesthesia, or morbidity from a donor site, even in challenging clinical situations. Thus, a technique of relative complexity becomes minimally invasive in its application. This book reviews the state of the art of zygomatic implants and outlines several new surgical techniques and adjunctive procedures. The authors cover the fundamentals of using zygomatic implants, including the rationale behind the approach, anatomical and biomechanical considerations, imaging of the zygoma, possible sinus reactions, contraindications, prosthodontic considerations, and management of complications. This book will arm clinicians with clear guidelines for using zygomatic implants in the rehabilitation of edentulous patients.

Flap design and peri-implant tissue stability are discussed in relation to gingival biotypes and biologic width. Minimally invasive implant site preparation using piezoelectric surgical techniques is presented in combination with platform switching. Subsequent chapters address implant-abutment connection configurations and peri-implant bone remodeling as well as preparation design, finish lines, emergence profiles, and the shoulderless abutment. Bringing all of these concepts together, a comprehensive minimally invasive prosthetic protocol is presented with clinical cases.
