Subpapillary Continuous Sling Suturing Method for Soft Tissue Grafting with the Tunneling Technique
Edward P. Allen, DDS, PhD.
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…
Soft Tissue Cone-Beam Computed Tomography: A Novel Method for the Measurement of Gingival Tissue and the Dimensions of the Dentogingival Unit
The purpose of the
present study was to develop a soft tissue cone-beam computed tomography (ST-CBCT) to
improve soft tissue image quality and allow the determination of the dimensions and relationships
of the structures of the dentogingival unit. Two separate CBCT scans were obtained from
three patients with different periodontal biotypes. The first was a scan following standard
methods; however, for the ST-CBCT the patients wore a plastic lip retractor and retracted their
tongues toward the floor of their mouths.
Current Trends in Gingival Recession Coverage
The recession of the gingiva is increasingly becoming a more prominent condition in the oral health of many patients and should be treated at its earliest detection. The multifactorial etiology, decision modality, and current trends followed in the treatment of gingival recession are discussed in this presentation. The correction of Class I and II gingival recessions are presented as a means of minimizing surgical trauma and achieving predictable aesthetic results. Part II of this discussion will present alternative techniques in treating gingival recession.
Abutment Connection, Micro-Movement and Soft Tissue Wellness
Dr. Paul Weigl discusses the very important relationship that exists between Abutment Connection, micro-movement and Soft tissue Wellness in implant therapy.
Tunneling Technique for Treating Multiple Recession Defects - A Surgical Technique Video
Dr. Maurice Salama describes the utilization of the tunneling technique in treating multiple recession defects in a thin tissue environment.
Delayed Implant Placement after Extraction - Strategies and Soft Tissue Management - Part 2
Dr. Alvarez show us an easy and simple way by using the 3inOne concept, to face the definitive impression and cementation process without loosing all the good results during the extraction, implant placement and provisionalisations.
Gingival Reconstruction & Soft Tissue Grafting
New perspectives in gingival reconstruction and soft tissue grafting.
Prosthetic Soft Tissue Development From Single to Full Arch Reconstruction
In addition to surgical intervention is the creation of the specific emergence profile that is essential in the aesthetic zone. The emergence profile composed of 2 parts, the abutment and the subgingival part of the crown. The shape of abutment can be individually shaped so that it gives natural appearance and varies individually (depending on the depth, angulation and diameter of the implant). Sometimes it even dictates the implant position. From a surgical perspective, soft tissue height, position and thickness need to be diagnosed and corrected when needed. From the prosthetic point of view, the emergence profile has to be created to mimic the natural appearance and maintained over time in respect to the biological changes. The course teaches step by step how to be successful with implant prosthetics from single tooth, partially edentulous to full arch reconstruction.
The Basics of Root Coverage Surgery with Acellular Dermal Grafts: A STEP-BY-STEP Live Patient Demonstration
Soft tissue grafting is rapidly playing a larger role in restorative, esthetic, and reconstructive dentistry. While conventional grafting techniques have several limitations, newer grafting materials and techniques make it easier for patients to say "yes" to the treatment they truly need and desire. In this webinar, Dr. Wong will perform a step-by-step demonstration using Perioderm to correct multiple gingival recession defects. Soft tissue allografts are quickly becoming a "game changer" in dentistry, making optimum dentistry more than an ideal... it's a reality.
