Two Immediate Temporization Methods Exemplified: Flap vs. Punch Technique in Implant Surgery
Protocols and techniques for immediate tooth replacement in the esthetic zone have become more popular and predictable within the past decade. Two different clinical scenarios are presented where immediate temporization of implants placed into healed or augmented ridges is exemplified. The benefits of augmentation prior to implant placement and temporization are that flap elevation is not required; therefore, the blood supply to the labial plate is not compromised, thereby eliminating potential midfacial recession. In addition, the soft tissue subgingival shape of the temporary crown can be non-surgically sculpted at the time of implant placement since the patient is already anesthetized.
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…
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.…
Functional Gingival Grafts in Anterior Implant Therapy - Part 1 of 2
Dr. Richard Martin outlines his approach to simultaneous gingival grafting following extraction to preserve or enhance the critical labial gingival margins around implant restorations in the esthetic zone.
Crown Lengthening in Comprehensive Esthetic Therapy: The Complete Surgical Video A to Z
In this complete surgical video, Dr. David Wong performs an esthetic crown lengthening procedure to address a "gummy smile" as part of comprehensive therapy and smile enhancement. Dr. Wong will outline the indications for crown lengthening surgery as opposed to orthognathic correction. The surgical video will demonstrate the complete crown lengthening surgery, including incision design, flap management and instrumentation. In addition, suturing and post-operative care will also be outlined in detail.
Acellular Dermal Grafts in the Correction of Gingival Recession: Discovering the Possibilities
In this presentation, follow the evolution of root coverage surgery from autogenous grafts to the more contemporary alternatives of today.
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.
