Summary:

Clinicians often encounter an insufficient amount of keratinized soft tissue in the proposed implant site. When this occurs, the question arises: Should the necessary softtissue manipulation be performed before, during, or after placement of the implant? There are three answers or scenarios for this question, according to Lee Silverstein, DDS, associate professor at the Medical College of Georgia in Augusta.

Use of the Subepithelial Connective Tissue Graft to Improve Esthetics
The subepithelial connective tissue graft is a gingival grafting plastic surgery procedure that can be used to enhance the aesthetic and gingival contour of the periodontium around dental implants. This technique is described and illustrated to create a soft-tissue root prominence and mask the grey color penetrating the thin labial attached gingival tissues over dental implants.

Fundamentally Changing Soft Tissue Grafting
Soft tissue augmentation procedures to increase the existing zone or create a new zone of keratinized tissue have been classically, and are routinely, performed using the patient's palate as the donor material. This article describes the simplistic use of a periodontal material that can be used for soft tissue augmentation procedures without using the patient's own palate to procure the donor tissue. This periodontal material is an acellular dermal allograft that has been used extensively in medicine.…

Laser Assisted Gingival Tissue Procedures

Laser Assisted Gingival Tissue Procedures
Soft tissue lasers are increasing in popularity among clinicians in part due to their potential value in preprosthetic gingival procedures. The ability of soft tissue lasers to control moisture and facilitate hemostasis appears particularly promising for clinicians excising gingival tissues, performing esthetic crown lengthening, and using resective techniques for gingival troughing—and these applications will grow as practitioners become more familiar with such technologies. This presentation highlights…

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.

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.
