Summary:

In postextraction protocols for delayed short, medium, and long-term implant placement, it is essential to develop treatments that accelerate regeneration of the soft tissue as well as alveolar bone with the purpose of reducing the patient's waiting time and improving the quality of tissue obtaining a sufficient quantity (densities greater than 500 Hounsfield units)and quality (type II and III) of alveolar bone both inside and, more interestingly, surrounding the walls of the alveolus which insures initial stability of implants in a time frame of 8-12 weeks compared to 12 months described in the standard Branemark protocol. The treatment of postexatraction sites with PRGF and autologous fibrin is a simple, economical and predictable biotechnological procedure for the obtention of alveolar bone and keratinized tissue with significant reduction in waiting time for the patient without any adverse effects.

A Modified Surgical/Prosthetic Approach for Optimal Single Implant Supported Crown
Optimal implant placement can be achieved only if the ridge maintains its dimensions and the qllality of bone. To prevent the resorption of the ridge and to enhance the quality of regenerated bone, two main approaches have been suggested. Palt I of this article presents a modified regenerative technique - the "socket seal surgery"' (SSS). Part II will present a modified prosthetic technique - the "cervical contouring concept" (CCC) - and it will be published in the May, 1994, issue of PP&A. The…

Similarities Between an Acellular Alloderm and a Palatal Graft for Tissue Augmentation
Predictable tissue regeneration presents a considerable challenge in the surgical treatment of gingival tissue defects. Soft-tissue augmentation procedures to increase the existing or create a new zone of attached keratinized gingival tissue have classically been performed using the patient's own masticatory mucosa and, more recently, using an acellular dermal allograft as the donor material. This article presents a clinical case whereby an acellular dermal allograft was placed on the buccal surface…

Predictable Gingival Correction of Passive Eruption

Predictable Gingival Correction of Passive Eruption
While the need to maintain a dry operative field has traditionally caused complications during various soft tissue surgical procedures, the use of bipolar electrosurgical techniques can eliminate the need to maintain a dry field, thus increasing the clinician’s ability to deliver predictable, long-term results. This case presentation describes how to determine the presence of passive eruption, treatment plan its correction, and surgically alter the gingiva to provide a more aesthetic smile. This…

Papilla Management in a Severe Periodontal and Cosmetic Deformity; The Wedge Palatal Graft Technique
Bone defects and periodontal disease can create challenging defects in the anterior area. When we have such severe defects as the one presented here, it´s essential to plan in advance and to be sure of what is possible to correct with bone grafting and with soft tissue management. The key question in this clinical case is to be able to place the soft tissue graft exactly where you want it to heal. In our clinical practice we use routinely PRGF ENDORET grafts, not only as vehicle for particulate graft transportation, but also as a biological enhancer of both osteointegration and soft tiss

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.
