atlas of implant dentistry and tooth preserving surgery prevention and management of complications

zoran stajcic


this atlas is unique in comparing the two disciplines of dental implant surgery and tooth-preserving surgery with respect to common procedures, problems, and failures and in providing excellent guidance on the prevention and management of complications. the etiology of a wide variety of implant-related and non-implant-related complications and failures is carefully explained. since many complications have their roots in oral and periodontal surgical maneuvers, these maneuvers are themselves discussed and extensively illustrated. the most frequently used tooth preservation procedures are also fully described, with emphasis on correct surgical technique as a means to avoid complications. the use of these procedures is constantly weighed against the effects of tooth removal and insertion of dental implants. the text is complemented by the inclusion of a substantial number of helpful references.while the atlas is intended primarily for dentists involved in outpatient implant dentistry and oral surgery, oral and maxillofacial surgeons will also find the descriptions of innovative techniques or maneuvers to be of interest, including those relating to the selection of incision and flap design and the sinus floor elevation techniques.show more

sinus grafting techniques a step by step guide

by ronald younes, nabih nader, georges khoiury

placement of endosseous implants in the posterior maxilla is often difficult because of a lack of supporting bone. sinus augmentation procedures have therefore been extensively used for the treatment of the edentulous atrophic posterior maxilla prior to implant placement. this book describes in detail the most widely used sinus grafting techniques as well as some innovative variations, with full coverage of both lateral and crestal approaches. a key aim is to assist the practitioner in selecting the appropriate sinus grafting technique based on the evaluation of a number of parameters that are described in detail and codified in a simple and practical way. up-to-date information is also provided on grafting materials and on potential complications of sinus augmentation procedures and their treatment.

the legends of implant dentistry with the history of transplantology and implantology

image descriptionby

  • linkow leonard i

this book represents an important contribution to the literature in a discipline that, up to now, has been vague and confusing, while at the same time controversial. implantology still remains for most of us at the border of the “twilight zone”. those of us who have implanted natural teeth realized that in a relatively short time the roots would resorb. from these observations came the concept of using a foreign substance. today the purity of the material used in implants is not as important as its toleration by the tissues. at the present time we are transplanting entire human organs, including hearts, kidneys and lungs. what is feared and far from being entirely understood is the rejection by the body of these so-called foreign substances. in dental implants we are similarly faced with the process of rejection. however, dental implants, unlike organ transplants, are inorganic, thus eliminating rejection. it is the hope of the author that successful answers will be found so that implantology will be on a firmer foundation. when any technique, dental or otherwise, reaches the threshold of being used by a growing number of practitioners who are experienced in their fields, serious consideration must be given the technical point of view, even though some practitioners may feel it is ahead of its time. such resolute treatise by an innovator, using commonly accepted scientific principles and documentary evidence of trialand-error, success-and-failure decrees must elicit respect for the innovator and the experimentation. the work of this author has been guided by such principles. his books theories and techniques of oral implantology, written several decades ahead of their time, are evidence of such forward-looking activity. all forms of experimentations in any field have always been attempted with confidence; an assurance of success is an integral part of the desires of the experimenter. the majority of our later attempts have been successful. in those later cases where failure resulted, it was not because of basic flaws in the concept of an endosseous implant procedure but because of overenthusiasm in attempting an intervention. but we have learned from our mistakes. this book is a synthesis of my experiences in the field of implantology, and the experiences of many others. it describes many techniques that are successful because they have been carefully designed to be compatible with the laws of nature. it explores the reasons why an implant succeeds or fails, from both operatory and physiologic viewpoints. it prepares the reader for the kind of experience that can be gained only through actual clinical work. it tells the individual operator why the procedures should work; his own experiences based on a thorough understanding of the factors involved will finally prove that they do work. this book is important because the information herein explores what an ever-increasing number of operators are proving is the modern miracle in dentistry.

  • great read for those interested in graftingaugust 21, 2011
20 years of guided bone regeneration in implant dentistry by daniel buser is a great read for those interested implant dentistry & bone grafting. with use of the evidence-based literature, the first half of the book covers the basics of bone physiology, properties of different barrier membranes / types of bones used, indication of different donor sites & possible complications. the second half of the book is clinically based, presenting different bone harvesting techniques, proper use of membranes / flap designs, surgical approaches for treating dehiscence, vertical, horizontal defects. this book is specifically intended for gbr and hence will not discuss other methods of bone grafting (i.e. ridge split, sinus lift, distraction osteogenesis, book flap, etc) or soft tissue manipulation (read soft tissue & esthetic considerations in implant dentistry by anthony sclar). nonetheless, highly recommended.
