Acellular Dermal Grafts in the Correction of Gingival Recession: Discovering the Possibilities

Description:
Autogenous connective tissue grafts from the palate have been the gold standard for surgically correcting gingival recession for decades. With the advent of newer soft (and hard) tissue allografts, grafting procedures are increasingly predictable, quick, effective, and less painful for patients. In this presentation, follow the evolution of root coverage surgery from autogenous grafts to the more contemporary alternatives of today. Discover how these newer materials are making it easier for patients to say "yes" and how their results can impact the level of esthetics, periodontal health and predictable restorative dentistry our profession can deliver.

Loved the presentation. Clear, concise and delivered well. I am eager to delve deeper in managing tissues better after seeing this. It really opened my eyes to what is possible. Thanks David

Doe's the root coverage procedure work as well on non vital teeth as on vital?

Hi Nina, thank you for the question... for treating multiple teeth, our fee is $1100 for the first tooth and $580 for each add'l tooth. For full arches, the fee is normally between $5000-6000 depending on the difficulty of the case... for instance, if a tooth only has 1 mm of recession I won't even charge for it if it's part of a full arch case.

Nina Foley - (1/31/2012 5:20 PM)

Loved it...when you are doing these full mouth or >1 graft how are you charging?

very good presentation as well as informative......gary toogood

@binh: There are several factors to consider for ortho cases... the direction of movement, severity of recession, quality of the surrounding tissue, etc... Generally speaking, my preference is to perform the grafting before ortho treatment in order to establish a strong foundation and to minimize or prevent further recession. However, for class I (Miller) recession defects in which there is no interproximal bone loss and the recession defects do not extend to the mucogingival junction, you can graft either before or after ortho as it really will not make a difference in the patient's final outcome as long as the roots are not moved through the labial plate. If there is absolutely no keratinized/attached gingiva surrounding a tooth or teeth, I will generally graft before orthodontic treatment. I will wait 8-12 weeks before commencing ortho. Hope this answer's not too confusing, and thank you for the question! @pierre-- I love Emdogain in some cases... there have been several studies (McGuire's work comes to mind) discussing it's use in treating recession. Results are usually best when used to treat Class I recession defects. Thin existing tissue is still going to be treated the best with either palatal tissue or an acellular dermal graft like Perioderm. The interesting thing about Emdogain, though, is that some studies report an increase in keratinized/attached gingiva and histology exists that suggest that regeneration is even possible. Thanks again for the question and for watching the presentation.

Biologic Strategies to Enhance Clinical and Aesthetic Success in Oral Implantology
This webinar will discuss clinical strategies for treatment of the complex implant site involving bone grafting and implant placement. Our understanding of cellular pathways, and our ability to control the wound response, expands our capacity to effect better aesthetic outcomes and compress treatment time. The reduction of the inflammatory phase of tissue regeneration speeds up osseointegration, prevents crestal bone loss, maintains papillary form, increases the density of peri-implant bone and increases tissue biotype. This enhanced tissue response allows us to predictably treat even the most complex surgical cases, compress time to final reconstruction, and to maintain these favorable tissue outcomes over an extended period of time. The use of dental implants with advanced biologic features and the incorporation autologous growth factors will be demonstrated.

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

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.

Hard and Soft Tissue Augmentation: Optimizing Esthetic Results for the Restorative Dentist
Contemporary patient expectations have made esthetics a major requisite of all treatment plans, especially in situations where there is a high smile line. Although new restorative materials have highly improved predictability and esthetic outcomes, soft and hard tissue management play a fundamental role when working in esthetic areas. To achieve ideal esthetics, preservation of the natural soft and hard tissue architecture is a primary clinical objective. These new proposed techniques illustrate the importance of pre-prosthetic soft and hard tissue management when working in highly esthetic compromised areas.

Biologic Width Adjacent to Loaded Implant with Machined and Rough Collars in the Dog

Biologic Width Adjacent to Loaded Implant with Machined and Rough Collars in the Dog
Dental implant surface technology has evolved from a relatively smooth machined implant surface for osseointegration to more roughened osteoconductive surfaces. Recent studies suggest that peri-implant soft tissue inflammation with progressive bone loss (ie peri-implantitis) is becoming a prevalent condition. One possibility that could explain sucha a finding is that more bacterial plaque forms on the roughened implant and abutment surfaces, which may result in the peri-implant inflammation if the soft tissues. This study compared 36 tissue-level implants with a machined transmucosal collar to 36 implants with a relatively roughened transmucosal surface in the dog. The results demonstrated that the connective tissue contact was similar between the two implant types but that the junctional epithelium and biologic width dimensions were greater around the implants with the machined collars...

Influence of Thin Mucosal Tissues on Crestal Bone Stability Around Implants With Platform Switching: A 1-year Pilot Study
The aim of this pilot study was to determine what effect thin mucosal tissues can have on crestal bone stability around implants with platform switching. Within the limitations of this pilot study it can be concluded that implants with platform switching did not preserve crestal bone better in comparison with implants with traditional implant-abutment connection if, at the time of implant placement, thin mucosal tissues were present.

Aesthetic Crown Lengthening

Aesthetic Crown Lengthening
The rationale for crown lengthening procedures has progressively become more aesthetic-driven due to the increasing popularity of smile enhancement therapy. Although the biologic requirements are similar to the functionally oriented exposure of sound tooth structure, aesthetic expectations require an increased emphasis on the appropriate diagnosis of the hard and soft tissue relationships, as well as the definitive restorative parameters to be achieved. The development of a clinically relevant aesthetic blueprint and attendant surgical guide is of paramount importance for the achievement of successful outcomes.
