The Management of Recession Midfacial to Immediately Placed Implants in the Aesthetic Zone The Management of Recession Midfacial to Immediately Placed Implants in the Aesthetic Zone

Summary:

Immediate placement and loading protocols are the most technique sensitive and at the highest risk of complication, especially in the aesthetic zone. The peri-implant tissues undergo a resorption pattern that may see exposure of parts supporting the restoration, otherwise intended to be submerged, with extreme aesthetic compromise or even complete failure of treatment. The literature is not definitive in terms of any one treatment modality to recover such a complication. Grafting the exposure by a guided bone regeneration technique and an adjunct soft tissue augmentation could well restore an unaesthetic recession exposure. Recovery of midfacial recession by soft tissue augmentation alone may be successful, as is presented hereafter.

Labial Bone Thickness in Area of Anterior Maxillary Implants Associated with Crestal Labial Soft Tissue Thickness
Soft tissue problems (ie, gingival recessions) are common in implantology and are often associated with thin soft tissue biotypes or buccally placed implants. Goaslind described 2 types of biotypes commonly found in the natural dentition: thick and thin. It has been suggested that thicker soft tissue biotypes are associated with less tissue recession, higher crestal bone levels, and better aesthetics. A thin tissue biotype has been shown to be more prone to tissue recession. Gingival recession is always associated with alveolar bone dehiscences. Furthermore, there is evidence that thick soft tissue may be protective against crestal bone loss (ie, tissue thickness of ,2.5 mm resulted in crestal bone loss of 1.45 mm vs. thicker tissues had 0.26 mm). This protective effect occurred, despite the supracrestal position of the implant-abutment interface.

Soft Tissue Management and Functional Mock-Ups

Soft Tissue Management and Functional Mock-Ups
Patients desiring a cosmetic smile improvement can present treatment planning challenges. An excessive display of gingiva resulting from a high lip line often complicates treatment planning and can compromise the final esthetic result. As we evaluate the patient, we often have to ask ourselves, do we “lower the river” (increase tooth length incisally), “raise the bridge” (increase tooth length gingivally) or use a combination of both approaches? This article addresses this issue using a methodological…

Advantages of the Root Submergence Technique for Pontic Site Development in Esthetic Implant Therapy

Advantages of the Root Submergence Technique for Pontic Site Development in Esthetic Implant Therapy
This article suggests a strategy to provide a more predictable protocol for esthetic implant treatment for multiple- tooth defects using the root submergence technique (RST). The RST maintains the natural attachment apparatus of the tooth in the pontic site, which in turn allows for complete preservation of the alveolar bone frame and assists in the creation of an esthetic result in adjacent multipletooth- replacement cases.

Socket Shield Technique with Immediate Implant Placement & Provisional
The collapse of the buccal bone and the subsequent recession following teeth extraction is effectively prevented with the socket shield technique. This short presentation goes through the techniques for socket shield preparation of a central incisor as well as the fabrication of an immediate chorused provisional utilizing the patients own crown. Creating a walk out as you walk in scenario. This presentation will show a number of tips and tricks to make this technique as simple as possible. It will also show long term stability of the soft tissue and ridge after 18 months. This technique is one that needs to be in everyones armamentarium. The benefits are unbelievable.

Tissue Thickness, Cement & Platform Switching; The Science
Mucosal tissue thickness was shown to be the factor having impact on crestal bone stability. Even platform switching of the implant-abutment connection does not reduce crestal bone loss, if soft tissues at the implant placement are thin.

The Evolving Role of Soft Tissue Enhancement in Esthetic Reconstructive Dentistry Premium Member Content

The Evolving Role of Soft Tissue Enhancement in Esthetic Reconstructive Dentistry
Soft tissue grafting techniques, new regenerative materials and bioactivators will be highlighted. The expanding role of allograft materials (Perioderm), platelet rich in growth factors (PRGF, PRF), and when to utilize them will be suggested. The ability of these combined protocols to alter the soft tissue profile around natural teeth, implants, and dentulous ridges, will be reviewed as to its critical role in "Complete Esthetics".

Modern Crown Lengthening: Classification and Clinical Application
Crown lengthening procedures are indicated to provide adequate tooth structure in case of subgingival tooth fracture or caries, uneven gingival level, un-esthetic short crowns due to the tooth wear, inadequate axial height, altered passive eruption ,forced eruption of a single or multiple teeth and finally in case of gingival smile. The treatment modality for esthetic crown lengthening procedure should be based on detail diagnosis in each case because of the multifactorial etiology and because of the type of therapy selected by the clinician, will have a direct implication for the esthetic result.

Critical Concepts in Implant and Gingival Surgery; Flap Designs, Suture Techniques and Soft Tissue Management Premium Member Content

Critical Concepts in Implant and Gingival Surgery; Flap Designs, Suture Techniques and Soft Tissue Management
This presentation by the Troeltzsch Brothers features the fundamentals of surgical procedures in the oral cavity. Highlighted are the basic concepts we all must integrate into our daily clinical practice. A discussion of the essential anatomic guidelines as they relate to flap design options and indications are emphasized. Furthermore, material selection, sutures and techniques of wound closures are clearly addressed. Critical solutions to common surgical complications are also described. This lecture is intended for surgical beginners as well as experienced clinicians who want to update their surgical knowledge. These fundamentals are also very popular in the hands-on courses given by the Troeltzsch brothers.

Is There One or More Reasons to Optimize the PRF & PRP Protocols? Future Trends in Dentistry, Orthopedics and Facial Aesthetics
The “Advanced” PRF (A-PRF) and “Injectable” PRF (I-PRF) protocols were designed with this new concept. Indications are numerous in all medical fields where we need regeneration: bone, cartilage, skin etc... However, the use of growth factors is not a guarantee of long term stability, as they are active only at the beginning of the process. Numerous rules of tissue engineering have to be applied to maintain the regenerated bone through an adequate blood supply: this lecture is an enlightenment on the biological and mechanical conditions for long term stability of the bone: “grafted bone” or “bone around implants”.
