Summary:

In the esthetic zone of the maxilla a proper emergence profile, predicated on healthy normal marginal gingival tissues with intact interdental papillae, is critical to achieving esthetically pleasing traditional fixed and implant supported restorations. Adequate soft tissue morphology, however, is dependent upon a stable, adequate volume of underlying bone capable of serving as a viable, biologic foundation for overlying soft tissues. Without the harmony afforded by a proper balance of underlying bone and overlying soft tissue, esthetic restorations are not possible, especially in the anterior maxilla. Frequently, however,alveolar bone loss disturbs that critical balance,resulting in marginal tissue distortion, recession and loss of esthetically crucial interdental papillae. Bone loss is common in the esthetic zone and can result from multiple precipitating events, the most common following tooth extraction. Multiple studies have documented predictable 3 mm to 4 mm of buccolingual and apicocoronal ridge resorption within 6 months after removal of maxillary anterior teeth. If left untreated up to 50% buccolingual bone loss will occur after one year post tooth removal in the critical esthetic zone.

Influence of Thin Mucosal Tissues on Crestal Bone Stability Around Implants With Platform Switching: A 1-year Pilot Study
The aim of this pilot study was to determine what effect thin mucosal tissues can have on crestal bone stability around implants with platform switching. Within the limitations of this pilot study it can be concluded that implants with platform switching did not preserve crestal bone better in comparison with implants with traditional implant-abutment connection if, at the time of implant placement, thin mucosal tissues were present.

Quantitative Evaluation of Extraction Socket Healing Following the Use of Autologous Platelet-Rich Fibrin Matrix in Humans
Advantages of PRFM alone include less surgical time, elimination of techniques and potential healing difficulties associated with membranes, and less resorption during healing, as compared to guided bone regeneration procedures.

The mIVAN Approach for Preservation Surgery Premium Member Content

The mIVAN Approach for Preservation Surgery
mIVAN* Technique is a nice abbreviation for complicated terminus: “ Modified Interpositional Augmentation Neogenesis”. It is basically simultaneous hard and soft tissue augmentation utilizing pediculated connective tissue graft. It works for Socket type 2 and 3 and ridges with horizontal atrophy. Combined with Partial Extraction Therapy, mIVAN technique is a nice treatment choice for the teeth with recessions.

Advances in Hard and Soft Tissue Management Using 3D Printing Technology Premium Member Content

Advances in Hard and Soft Tissue Management Using 3D Printing Technology
It is becoming rare today to come across simple cases in Periodontics; our specialty has come to face complex cases where hard and soft tissue deficiencies are quite common. These suggested protocols and schematic approaches were developed to help the surgical practitioner visualize and divide the problem into a predictable step-by-step workflow. The utilization of 3-D printed CBCT studies of the treatment planned surgical sites was shown to be integral in patient care and clinical outcomes. Every step is dictated by biology; all incision designs, flap management techniques, and biomaterials used have been selected to maximize the blood supply in the area and minimize trauma to the vascular network that nourishes our surgical site.

Novel Surgical BioSealing & Original BioProfiling Techniques - Part 1 of 2 Premium Member Content

Novel Surgical BioSealing & Original BioProfiling Techniques - Part 1 of 2
Biphosphonates Related Osteonecrosis of the Jaw is one of the tragedies affecting our patients each time more often representing a new challenge in what we like to call human dentistry. This severe and unpredictable outcome can evolve from something as simple as a tooth extraction or simply an implant placement. In this presentation the authors display one of the first BRONJ cases in the world treated with the surgical biosealing technique using the PRGF ENDORET graft. Understanding the BIOlogy behind the healing process has been as much surprising as useful in trying to alleviate our patients pain and improve their quality of life. This video presents a novel technique to the post-extraction site based upon taking care of the overall tissue support from the bone level and we will discuss treatment planning, options and limitations with this technique/protocol.

Advanced Bone Grafting Techniques: Part 2 - Autogenous Bone Blocks in the Reconstruction of the Atrophic Maxillary Ridge
This lecture will describe the use of autologous onlay block bone grafting for reconstruction of moderate to severe atrophic maxillary alveolar ridge. This will include a discussion of the various options to this form of grafting, such as short implants, maxillary sinus augmentation, sub-nasal elevation procedure, connective tissue grafting and soft tissue manipulation, Le-Fort I down fracture/osteotomy and the use of progenitor cells: bone marrow aspirating concentrated. A description of surgical donor harvest sites in the mandible will also be performed as well as post-op healing of these sites. Additional time will be spent reviewing causes of failure with bone blocks and implants placed into these sites.

Tissue Engineering and Platelet Derived Growth Factors: Evidence Based Therapy
Platelet derived growth factors are now routinely utilized in reconstructive therapy. This presentation describes very detailed and evidence based guidelines for clinicians interested in enhancing their abilities in tissue engineering, especially as it relates to bone augmentation. Specifically, while successful bone augmentation requires the standard surgical parameters of space maintenance, low pressure on the grafts and tension-free flap closure, optimization of this goal requires management and enhancement of the local biological conditions with growth factors. Towards that end, platelet concentrates through the constant release of growth factors are able to promote and enhance new vascularization, provide plasma protein, normal lipidemia, as well as increased collagen and fibrin activity.
