The AGE Approach: A Combination Protocol for Hard and Soft Tissue Augmentation in Complex Cases

Description:
Although new restorative materials have improved predictability and outcomes, hard and soft tissue management plays a fundamental role when working in aesthetic areas. To achieve ideal results, preservation of the natural hard and soft tissue architecture is the primary clinical objective. This new proposed AGE protocol illustrates the importance of hard and soft tissue management when working in esthetic and highly compromised areas. This protocol and schematic approach was developed to help the surgical practitioner visualize and divide the problem into a predictable step-by-step workflow. Every step is dictated by biology. All incision designs, flap management techniques, and biomaterials used have been selected to maximize the blood supply in the area and minimize trauma to the vascular network that nourishes our surgical site. This protocol was developed for the treatment of any case presenting a combination of vertical and horizontal, hard and soft tissue deficiency. The protocol will be explained in detail with a clinical case complete with pictures and commentary. The protocol will be divided into a four part series describing all possible scenarios.

Marco Benigni - (6/23/2016 12:08 PM)

It looks like there was a considerable bone resorption after the bone grafting procedure (2nd CBCT image). What is the possible reason for that? Graft material or mesh design? Thank you

FİGEN ÖZÇELEBİ - (5/10/2016 9:32 AM)

Thank you Dr Cicero

amr al-khairi - (5/5/2016 7:33 PM)

fantastic, what sutures are you using in your surgery? thank you very much, that was a quality presentation.

yaarob sara - (5/4/2016 7:55 PM)

Very nice Thank you!

Maurice Salama - (4/25/2016 6:49 PM)

Well done, the final result is challenging to attain even after multiple surgical entries. Thanks Dr. Salama

"The Great Debate" on Tooth Replacement
Bucco-palatal collapse of the post-extraction ridge is a significant challenge in restorative and implant dentistry. A variety of different approaches as well as ridge preservation techniques using tissue and augmentative materials have been proposed in this session with some of the leading clinical research teams in the field. A conceptual debate format discussing the virtues of "Early Placement" at 6 weeks (Buser & Belser Team) vs. "Immediate Placement with Dual Zone Protocols" at time of extraction (Chu & Tarnow Team) vs. "Partial Extraction Therapy" PET (Gluckman & Salama) also at the time of extraction is led by Professor Homa Zadeh of USC. This interactive session explores the current status and poses questions for the future use and indications of each proposed therapy.

Soft Tissue Augmentation: What Are The Limits? Premium Member Content

Soft Tissue Augmentation: What Are The Limits?
Soft tissue grafting techniques provide the dentist with an armamentarium that makes possible to prevent and solve many problems and complications around teeth and implants, making more predictable the treatments results. But, what are the limits ? Sometimes it is not so easy to take the right decision between bone or soft tissue grafting techniques We present many different techniques illustrated with clinical cases in order to explain our point of view.

Critical Concepts in Implant and Gingival Surgery; Flap Designs, Suture Techniques and Soft Tissue Management Premium Member Content

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.

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.

Managing Esthetic Implant Complications Premium Member Content

Managing Esthetic Implant Complications
Dental implant success today is judged not only by osseointegration but also by bone, tissue stability and of course long term esthetic results. Cosmetic predictability can often be difficult to attain, and esthetic implant failures can be multifactorial and patient management issues. Once esthetic implant failures occur, many cannot be fully corrected. Some complications must be addressed by an interdisciplinary dental team. In this summary of case reports, surgical considerations are provided, including cases of facial asymmetry/recession due to facial implant placement or bone loss resulting from technique/treatment failures, as well as papillary deficiencies. Restorative considerations for correcting failures are also discussed.

Fibrin Assisted Soft Tissue Promotion (FASTP) - A New Perspective in Periodontal Plastic Surgery Premium Member Content

Fibrin Assisted Soft Tissue Promotion (FASTP) - A New Perspective in Periodontal Plastic Surgery
Soft tissue recession around teeth and implants is an epidemic problem in the field of dentistry. A predictable and long-term soft tissue augmentation outcome is primarily dependent on proper diagnosis, prognosis and treatment planning. Harvesting limitations of autogenous tissue from the palate represent a true challenge when treating patients with multiple recessions or gingival deformities around teeth and dental implants. The Advanced Platelet Rich Fibrin (APRF) and injectable platelet-rich fibrin (iPRF) are promising tissue promoters that can be a suitable alternative option.

Achieving Predictable Connective Tissue Root Coverage

Achieving Predictable Connective Tissue Root Coverage
Gingival recession creates esthetic issues. These issues may be corrected from a restomtive perspective by the placement of composite resin or ceramic over the exposed root. But this approach often results in a gingival-incisal length that does not blend esthetically with tire adjacent teeth. Often accompanying the gingival recession is a decrease in the band of attached gingiva. The wider the band of attached gingiva, the more stabIe the long-term result Therefore, surgical correction of the recession…

Acellular Dermal Matrix Grafts for Root Coverage Procedures: Review of Products and Introduction of a New Technique
Gingival recession remains a significant problem in dental esthetics as well as periodontal health. Adequate zones of keratinized, attached tissue are vital for long-term periodontal health and maintenance. The correction of gingival recession is an important principle in cosmetic dental procedures that requires a harmonious gingival complex. Correction of deficient gingival tissues by either autogenous or allogenic tissue grafts has been well documented in the literature. This article will delineate differences among the various acellular dermal grafts as well as introduce a new technique that can enhance success.

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.
