“Bernotti V-Y Flap”: A Minimally Invasive Recession Coverage Technique

Description:
The Bernotti V-Y Flap, it’s a coronally advanced flap technique with a “V-Y’’ flap design, which consist in a microsurgery technique with or without connective tissue graft, that will improve mucosal biotype and keratinized band in a predictable way for isolated mucosal recession, dehiscence and translucent tissue, at teeth or implants sites. It is a conservative flap design, inspired in Semilunar and Modified Semilunar Tarnow’s technique, to minimize interproximal crestal bone loss and possible loss of papillae around teeth or implants, marginal mucosal position is stabilized avoiding adverse aesthetic outcomes. At least (two) 2mm of keratinized mucosa must be left on each side of the flap to preserve blood supply and avoid loss of crestal marginal bone. Miller Class I and II recession defects with a minimum length of (two) 2 mm are suitable to be selected to perform the Bernotti V-Y Flap; The Bernotti V-Y Flap consist of a pedicle flap, making a ¨V ¨incision apically to the recession defect. The incision ends on each inter-proximal area of the tooth or the implant, but not all the way to the tip of the papilla. Afterwards a mid-facial intra-sulcular incision is made, to allow a coronal movement of the marginal tissue with no tension. The flap is coronally maintained, when it is sutured the vertical slope of the ¨Y¨ incision. Pushing or advancing coronally the flap to cover the mucosal recession without making any tension to the pedicle flap, avoiding any incision or suture at the papillae that could compromised blood supply. The Bernotti V-Y Flap is recommended in the presence of a Keratinized mucosa band or in combination with tissue graft, either on teeth or implants sites. In order to cover isolated mucosa recession, treat dehiscence, translucent tissue and improve mucosa biotype. Stability and aesthetic outcomes are achieved with the Bernotti V-Y Flap.

Wonderful presentation Ana Luisa. I was privileged to have seen it live.

Very nice lecture and great technique. It happens when we love our profession and think a lot about it. What do you think about utilizing tuberosity bone instead of mandibular bone? BTW, it`s nice that you saved this surprise for XP Symposium:)) Congratulations!

Maurice Salama - (3/2/2018 9:26 AM)

Well done and very innovative. We need more follow up and clinical research comparing long term success and versus other conventional approaches. Thanks Dr. Salama

Excellent technique ! Great presentation ! I had the privilege to see both of these procedures during Dr. Ana Luisa Bernotti ‘s live surgeries and I was impressed by the results and simplicity of the technique. We need more unique people like you Dr. Bernotti ! Your skills, passion and dedication are above extraordinary! Congratulations !!!!!

Bone Augmentation & Vascular Enhancement Concepts: It’s Time to Make it Simple!
The purpose of this presentation is to make the participant think biology first and not mechanic first. A biological thinking will dramatically simplify vertical and/or horizontal bone augmentation procedures. We will also be introducing a new approach for the simplification of soft tissue handling: the Soft Brushing Technique, that will allow the coronal advancement of both buccal and lingual flaps, but also the palatal flap without the need for periosteal releasing incisions.

Papilla Management in a Severe Periodontal and Cosmetic Deformity: Combining Veneer into Full Graft (ViFG) and Veneer into Split Graft (ViSG)
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

Is There One or More Reasons to Optimize the PRF & PRP Protocols? Future Trends in Dentistry, Orthopedics and Facial Aesthetics
The “Advanced” PRF (A-PRF) and “Injectable” PRF (I-PRF) protocols were designed with this new concept. Indications are numerous in all medical fields where we need regeneration: bone, cartilage, skin etc... However, the use of growth factors is not a guarantee of long term stability, as they are active only at the beginning of the process. Numerous rules of tissue engineering have to be applied to maintain the regenerated bone through an adequate blood supply: this lecture is an enlightenment on the biological and mechanical conditions for long term stability of the bone: “grafted bone” or “bone around implants”.

Fibrin Assisted Soft Tissue Promotion (FASTP) Premium Member Content

Fibrin Assisted Soft Tissue Promotion (FASTP)
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.

Influence of Thin Mucosal Tissues on Crestal Bone Stability Around Implants With Platform Switching: A 1-year Pilot Study

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.

Bone Regeneration and Tissue Acceptance of Human Fascia Lata Grafts Adjacent to Dental Implants

Bone Regeneration and Tissue Acceptance of Human Fascia Lata Grafts Adjacent to Dental Implants
The biologic principle of guided tissue regeneration (GTR) has been studied extensively in hopes of regenerating alveolar bone. Various materials have been utilized as regenerative membranes; however, all materials have disadvantages, and the ideal membrane material is yet to be identified. In this case report, human freeze-dried fascia lata strips were used as a regenerative barrier membrane in conjunction with the placement of endosseous root implants and demineralized, freeze-dried bone allograft.…
