Summary:

Tooth loss and subsequent ridge collapse continue to burden restorative implant treatment. Careful management of the post-extraction tissues is needed to preserve the alveolar ridge. In-lieu of surgical augmentation to correct a ridge defect, the socket-shield technique offers a promising solution. As the root submergence technique retains the periodontal attachment and maintains the alveolar ridge for pontic site development, this case report demonstrates the hypothesis that retention of a prepared tooth root section as a socket-shield prevents the recession of tissues buccofacial to an immediately placed implant. The socket-shield technique is a highly promising addition to clinical implant dentistry and this case report is among the first to demonstrate the procedure in clinical practice with a 1-year follow up.

Cirugía plástica periodontal para aumento de tejido blando alrededor de implantes Premium Member Content

Cirugía plástica periodontal para aumento de tejido blando alrededor de implantes
En la actualidad, los objetivos de la odontología han ido evolucionado a partir de las necesidades y las demandas de los procesos quirúrgicos, así como por los defectos o lesiones del periodonto, sobretodo cuando intervienen factores estéticos, donde se requieren restauraciones prostodónticas con aspectos naturales, que busquen un equilibrio armónico entre la arquitectura gingival y el rostro en sí del paciente, aún más en los casos donde se presenta sonrisa gingival. Es por esto que se han estudiado varias técnicas mucogingivales para recubrimientos de recesiones, cambios de color por biótopo muy fino, aumento de volumen por pérdida del contorno gingival y colapso de los tejidos duros y blandos; siendo la más estudiada el injerto de tejido conectivo, como mecanismo de compensación y estabilidad para contribuir a una sonrisa más armónica y bella a la hora de la rehabilitación con implantes en el área anterior.

A Novel Surgical-Prosthetic Approach to Optimize Peri-Implant Tissue Esthetics Premium Member Content

A Novel Surgical-Prosthetic Approach to Optimize Peri-Implant Tissue Esthetics
The achievement of an aesthetic implant-supported restoration is a constant challenge to the restorative dentist. Due to the circular shape of the implant and its smaller diameter, when compared to the root of a natural tooth, a dilemma inevitably occurs of how to construct an artificial crown that will imitate the natural tooth crown form. The appearance of the surrounding soft tissue is of major importance, and various techniques have been developed to guide its topography. The Marginal Migration Concept is a technique that helps the clinician in order to achieve a long-term predictable outcome in the Aesthetic zone by enhancing the surrounding tissues. The lecture will show step-by-step clinical procedures from diagnostic models through surgery with immediate provisional restoration therapy to the definitive restorations.

Prevention & Therapy of Biological Complications in Implant Dentistry
After decades of implant therapies carried out by mostly general dentists, a new pathology that did not exist only 25 years ago is spreading like wildfire: peri-implantitis. In this course we will discuss the possibilities of prevention of this disease and the most modern therapies to treat biological complications in implant therapy in the light of clinical research published and in the next publication.

Modern Crown Lengthening: Classification and Clinical Application Premium Member Content

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.
