Zirconia dental implants....hmm....I would like to know more. Many people wonder if using zirconia is better than titanium. This short video will help explain some of the current thoughts. #dentalimplants, #bonegraft, #burbank

I treated this patient for the upper jaw in 2008. Last week the lower was done. I removed 9 lower teeth and placed 6 lower implants. The front four implants were used for the same day temporary. The patient has to be on a soft diet for about 6 months because the temporaries are made of plastic/acrylic. After the dental implants are healed, I will make him a prettau dental implant bridge. #dental implants #bonegraft #burbank

If you like watching virtual surgical planning for dental implants, you will learn a lot from this particular video.  It is geared for viewing by a patient rather than a doctor.  I walk you through planning for 11 dental implants in a Prettau dental implant bridge.
your comments are welcome ;-)

I surgically placed the two really long implants on the upper jaw. Her sinus was hollow so a sinus lift bone graft was done to increase the bone volume. The upper back teeth are tricky because the bite is very strong and the bone is very soft. Because of this, big, long implants are always a good thing. (I didn't do the littlest one!)

Nerve-Repositioning or “Nerve Lateralization” is reserved for the rarest of cases, but is extremely useful in the right situation.  I treated this lovely woman on both sides of her lower jaw and this is what she had to say

It is only done to replace the lower back teeth with a very unique situation when the nerve is in the way. You may need this procedure if the bone is not “tall” enough to have an implant.

This article is a follow-up to a video from 2009 that I receive a lot of questions about. Block bone grafting for dental implants is still a very successful procedure…. But a lot has changed in 6 years!

A block bone graft is done when there is a large section of bone that is missing. That area of missing bone is usually the outer wall of bone that faces your cheek. A block bone graft is needed when there is no way to put particulate bone particles into a “hole” like an extraction socket. The block bone graft attaches by screws to your jaw kind of like an orthopedic surgeon who is fixing a broken leg with screws. The screws are only kept in during the 4-6 months that the bone is reconnecting to your own existing bone.

I was always so proud of this case.  Very nice young woman without front teeth.  Bone grafts would be too complex for dental implants.  Here was the alternative plan.

In this short, but highly informative video, I review some of the common truths and misconceptions about antibiotics in relationship to tooth infections, dental implants and bone grafting.

Use of antibiotics should be judicious and carefully thought out.  Just because you have an “infection” in your tooth, it does not mean you need an antibiotic.  Also, not all “infections” are actually infections.  Not all infections can be cured by antibiotics alone.

Antibiotics are commonly needed for procedures that involved cutting through bone or addition of bone graft materials.  There is a limited supply of new blood vessels that can get your natural immune system’s protection in the first few days following a significant procedures such as a surgical extraction, a bone graft, sinus graft, apicoectomy and dental implants.

Antibiotics are extremely helpful in many situations.  I also discussed common questions such as antibiotic resistance and what happens with common stomach issues and what to do about them.

I think you will find this video helpful.  Please feel free to ask questions below.
