Soft Tissue Waxup and Mock-Up as Key Factors in a Treatment Plan: Case Presentation
Rehabilitation of edentulous spaces in esthetic areas is a challenge to the clinician due to the loss of soft tissues. In these clinical situations, it would be desirable to evaluate and predict the gingival architecture to recover in the oral rehabilitation. To fulfill this need, the diagnostic was should anticipate the final rehabilitation with the integration of hard and soft tissue.
The Management of Immediate Implant Placement to Optimize Aesthetic Outcome in the Anterior Maxilla
Following tooth extraction the implant surgeon may select between various implant placement timing and loading protocols. Ideally these are to be determined prior to extraction, be it immediate, early, or late placement. Immediate implant placement even in the aesthetic zone is a literature supported treatment modality with success comparable to alternative placement protocols. Meticulous restorative treatment planning of a tooth destined
for extraction is essential. Selecting the appropriate implant and techniques may preserve and ensure natural aesthetics. Utilizing the patient’s own tooth crown can better provisionalize the implant with a ‘walk out as you walk in’
Soft Tissue Stability with Immediate Implants and Concave Abutments
The aim on the present retrospective study was to observe the dimensional alterations of the peri-implant tissues after immediate implants and single tooth restorations with concave abutments performed on 28 patients, with a mean follow-up time on 20.4 months.
Autogenous Soft Tissue Ridge Augmentation
Harvesting, placement and stabilization of autogenous connective tissue grafts.
Integrative Management of the Gummy Smile: Lip repositioning, Crown Lengthening & Restorative Nuances
The gingival smiles can be mild, moderate and severe , according to the degree of gingival exposure while smiling . Depending on the etiology of the problem , mild and moderate gummy smiles can be treated with moderate periodontal plastic surgery , however for severe , this procedure is not enough .
The “VISTA” Vestibular Incision Subperiosteal Tunnel Access Technique for Treatment of Multiple Anterior Recession Defects
In this clinical video, the “VISTA” Vestibular Incision Subperiosteal Tunnel Access Technique is displayed in the treatment of multiple anterior recession defects on previously restored teeth. Debridement, root conditioning, incisions, ACDM placement, instrumentation and suturing are highlighted as well as two week postop results.
Biologic Strategies to Enhance Clinical and Aesthetic Success in Oral Implantology
This webinar will discuss clinical strategies for treatment of the complex implant site involving bone grafting and implant placement. Our understanding of cellular pathways, and our ability to control the wound response, expands our capacity to effect better aesthetic outcomes and compress treatment time. The reduction of the inflammatory phase of tissue regeneration speeds up osseointegration, prevents crestal bone loss, maintains papillary form, increases the density of peri-implant bone and increases tissue biotype. This enhanced tissue response allows us to predictably treat even the most complex surgical cases, compress time to final reconstruction, and to maintain these favorable tissue outcomes over an extended period of time. The use of dental implants with advanced biologic features and the incorporation autologous growth factors will be demonstrated.
Crown Lengthening in Comprehensive Esthetic Therapy: The Complete Surgical Video A to Z
In this complete surgical video, Dr. David Wong performs an esthetic crown lengthening procedure to address a "gummy smile" as part of comprehensive therapy and smile enhancement. Dr. Wong will outline the indications for crown lengthening surgery as opposed to orthognathic correction. The surgical video will demonstrate the complete crown lengthening surgery, including incision design, flap management and instrumentation. In addition, suturing and post-operative care will also be outlined in detail.
Esthetic Periodontal Surgery: Making Recession Defects Disappear by Grafting
Expert discussion of soft tissue grafting; first an overview of current trends, the second showing a specific allograft technique for treating multiple adjacent recession defects.
