Buccal Sliding Palatal Pedicle Flap Technique for Wound Closure After Ridge Augmentation

Description:
One standard approach for wound closure after ridge augmentation is coronal flap advancement. Coronal flap advancement results in displacement of the mucogingival junction and reduction of the vestibulum. In the maxilla, a buccal sliding palatal flap can be applied for primary wound closure after ridge augmentation. The dissected part of the palatal connective tissue is left exposed thus eliminating or reducing the amount of the coronal flap advancement respectively and increasing amount of keratinized gingiva. In combination with guided soft tissue augmentation, this flap design enables a three-dimensional peri-implant soft tissue augmentation.

Dear Lalith Vivekananda, thank you, I appreciate your feedback very much! Once we see advantages of ROBINHOOD concepts, we open our eyes and discover countless opportunities to utilize the patient own tissue without doing any harm with an additional donor site. Thank you again!

Thank you for your nice comment, dear Farhan Durrani. The other technique is the coronally flap advancement of the buccal flap in the low jaw. Periosteum incision is 1 mm and "brushing" using the blade is utilized to further release the buccal flap. BSPPF technique has the goal to avoid or reduce the coronally buccal flap advancement. In cases where 4-5 mm of exposed buccal sliding flap are not sufficient for the wound closure, BSPPF is combined with the coronally buccal flap advancement. Thanks to the Ronda & Stacch paper and later Choukroun and Simonpieri popularization, I prefer a shallow initial periosteum incision, followed by brushing. In cases where only a minor buccal flap advancement is required, periosteum detachment from the bone is sufficient to advance the flap coronally.

Awesome lecture Sjnezana 🤝....appreciate the intricacy in your work...following your ROBINHOOD concepts ----its working out great 😊

Thank you, Howie, I am honored that you took your time to watch this video. It is always good to hear from you and get your smart questions. Apically repositioned flap is easier to perform then BSPPF, although BSPPF does not require great surgical skills.When BSPPF technique is utilized, the MGJ is not displaced or it is displaced minimally. It means that at second stage surgery we don`t have to deal with flattened vestibulum and can uncover implants 1. minimally invasive, especially if guided soft tissue augmentation was performed, or 2. thicken the soft tissue with roll flap or FCTG. A few months after the first CT detachment and displacement, the CT quality and quantity is even better. Apically repositioned flap allows for the horizontal tissue thickening, but not for the vertical. What I dislike about the apically repositioned flap is the exposed bone between the implants and flap management on adjacent teeth.  I find apically repositioned flap more useful in full arch cases, but in the most esthetic cases, there is no application for this flap. Nowadays I use apically repositioned flap only if the soft tissue thickness does not allow for BSPPF.

Great Presentation with innovative skill Snježana Pohl Please can you explain the advantage over another technique mentioned in same journal Marco Ronda, Claudio Stacchi;A Novel Approach for the Coronal Advancement of the Buccal Flap;Int J Periodontics Restorative Dent . Nov-Dec 2015;35(6):795-801

Howard Gluckman - (9/22/2020 3:18 AM)

grit lecture and work Sjnezana I love your work. Thanks for sharing will be trying the technique ASAP. How do you think this compares to the use of the apically repositioned flap. with regards to ease of use, tissue thickening and replacement of the MGJ. thanks

Zero Bone Loss Protocol: Influence of Vertical Soft Tissue Thickness on Crestal Bone Stability Premium Member Content

Zero Bone Loss Protocol: Influence of Vertical Soft Tissue Thickness on Crestal Bone Stability
Crestal bone stability is considered to be important for bone preservation, longevity of implants and to prevent peri-implant tissue recession. Implant placement level is important for bone stability. Mucosal tissue thickness was shown to be the factor having impact on bone stability. It was showed that platform switching does not reduce crestal bone loss, if soft tissues at the implant placement are thin.

Partial Extraction Therapies: From Failure to Everyday Practice - Part 1 of 4 Premium Member Content

Partial Extraction Therapies: From Failure to Everyday Practice - Part 1 of 4
Tooth extraction is usually followed by the resorption of support tissues that may compromise the aesthetic and functional prognosis of the final rehabilitation. There have been numerous publications suggesting Partial Extraction Therapies contribute to the maintenance of the alveolar ridge dimensions. These techniques consist in intentionally preserving a buccal root fragment in order to avoid tearing the periodontal ligament and loosing the bundle bone, which leads to bone resorption. It has been reported that these are very sensitive techniques and may lead to some complications. In order to avoid these complications, the dental surgeon must know which cases can be treated with Partial Extraction Therapies and how to correctly perform them. In these presentations we will show what are the indications and contraindications, how to perform these techniques, the literature that sustains it, how can we benefit from digital technology to today's world, etc.

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.

Peri-Implantitis: Diagnosis, Etiology and Treatment Premium Member Content

Peri-Implantitis: Diagnosis, Etiology and Treatment
The dental implant therapy has evolved both in implant surface and design. The reason for the initial crestal bone loss has been proven and the risks of having a peri-implantitis have increased due to the early exposure of roughened surface. The prevalence of peri-implantitis is at a range of 28 to 56%. The role of dental professionals nowadays is to know how to interpret the signs of inflammation and establish the diagnosis of peri-implantitis, which is the most challenging, and be able to treat it properly since this is becoming a more needed therapy.

Surgical Crown Lengthening in a Population With Human Immunodeficiency Virus: A Retrospective Analysis

Surgical Crown Lengthening in a Population With Human Immunodeficiency Virus: A Retrospective Analysis
This report investigates the outcome of CLS procedures performed at an urban dental school in a population of individuals with HIV. Specifically, this retrospective clinical analysis evaluates the healing response after crown lengthening surgery (CLS). Of the 21 patients with HIV examined after CLS, none had postoperative complications, such as delayed healing, infection, or prolonged bleeding. Variations in viral load, CD4 cell count, smoking, platelets, and neutrophils did not impact surgical healing. In addition, variations in medication regimens (highly active anti-retroviral therapy; on pro-tease inhibitors; no medications had an impact. The results of this retrospective analysis show the absence of postoperative complications after CLS in this population with HIV. Additional investigation into this area will help health care practitioners increase the range of surgical services provided to this group of patients.

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...

Guidelines for the Diagnosis and Treatment of Peri-Implant Disease

Guidelines for the Diagnosis and Treatment of Peri-Implant Disease
Although some risk factors of peri-implant disease are well defined, the lack of efficient and predictable approaches to treat peri-implantitis has created difficulty in the management of those complications. The aim of this review was the evaluate the reliability of the diagnosis methods and to provide a set of guidelines to treat peri-implant disease. A search of PubMed and a hand search of articles related to peri-implant diseases were conducted up to August 2013. A summary of the current methods for the diagnosis of peri-implantitis, its potential risk factors, and a flow chart to guide the clinical management of these conditions are presented.
