Replacing the Natural Tooth System in the Esthetic Zone: Flapless Implant Placement and Simultaneos Restoration to Preserve Tissue Contours and Guarantee Esthetics Replacing the Natural Tooth System in the Esthetic Zone: Flapless Implant Placement and Simultaneos Restoration to Preserve Tissue Contours and Guarantee Esthetics

Summary:

The immediate temporization of dental implants at placement, following a flapless approach after tooth removal, can lay the foundation for the formation and maintenance of the soft-tissue contours necessary to enhance the clinical appearance of the implant-supported restoration in the esthetic zone. The conservative nature of this technique promotes simplification of the implant process, provides an esthetic, non-removable provisional, and facilitates a shorter healing phase. The patient is returned to a normal lifestyle in a more rapid fashion after receiving a natural-looking tooth replacement.

The Aesthetic Smile: Diagnosis and Treatment
Until recently, dentists' and the public's concept of dental aesthetics was necessarily limited to alterations of the teeth themselves. Dentists concerned themselves with changing the position, the shape and the color of the teeth -basically restoring missing units or enhancing those already present. For the most part the dentist was forced to accept the pre-existing relationship between the three components of the smile; the teeth, the gingival scaffold and the lips.

Sequencing of Periodontal Procedures and Orthodontic Treatment
Severe cases of periodontal disease often require periodontal surgery and realignment of teeth. Surgical techniques have been developed that attempt to minimize postsurgical gingival recession and compromise the interdental papillae. A case report is presented in which reversal and correction of a deteriorating maxillary frontal dentition were effectively achieved through combined use of periodontal and orthodontic principles. The treatment plan included the control of periodontal inflammation, restoration of lost attachment apparatus, realignment of anterior dentition, stabilization of occlusion, and minor periodontal plastic surgery. The anticipated loss of a maxillary lateral incisor was avoided. Restoration of a pleasant smile with nicely aligned teeth and esthetic gingival contours was achieved. The correct sequencing of the procedures involved was considered a key factor for the long-term esthetic outcome.

TEETH 2013: When to Save and When to Extract and When to Regenerate
The treatment of periodontally compromised patients has been significantly altered by the availability of predictable implant dentistry.Where in the past, a compromised tooth with advanced bone loss and/or furcation invasion might have been retained, the high success rate of osseointegrated implants challenges the clinical decision. Should the tooth be saved with periodontal regeneration or be replaced with an implant? Conversely, new biomimetic mediators have enhanced the predictability of regenerative outcomes and encourage endeavors to maintain the natural dentition. This lecture will address the clinical decision that occurs in every practice: save the tooth or place an implant.
