Challenges & Management of Peri-Implant Pink Esthetics in Anterior Implant Therapy

Description:
When considering implant therapy in the esthetic zone, replicating the natural soft tissue frame may present challenges for the treating clinician. A harmonious gingival form and architecture are not only fundamental for achieving adequate peri-implant pink esthetics, but also for simulating a natural emergence for the future restoration. When dealing with clinical situations in which adequate tissue architecture and volume are present, preserving or further enhancing the available support may provide an improved esthetic outcome with less associated morbidity and treatment duration. Nevertheless, reconstruction of atrophic sites due to lost hard and soft tissue volume is often inevitable in the anterior zone, which may necessitate more complex grafting procedures with varying degrees of predictability in achieving ideal peri-implant soft tissues. This presentation will highlight different clinical scenarios in which the lack of hard and soft tissue volume may pose difficulties in achieving ideal peri-implant esthetics, in addition to available clinical strategies on how to manage and minimize hard and soft tissue deficiencies when dealing with implant therapy in the esthetic zone.

Ronnie, thank you for your kind words. I would like to clarify that the shrinkage of the mucograft may be extensive i.e. as mentioned 60-70% in some cases so i would reserve this technique to larger augmented sites where harvesting autogenous tissue will increase the surgical involvement greatly. Also the size of the mucograft has to be sufficient to compensate for that shrinkage. Having said that, the use of the FGGs helps dictate the phenotypic expression, I'm not sure how the mucograft would behave in terms of keratinization if the apical border is all mucosa. I think it would work if you mobilize an adequate band of keratinized tissue from the palate apically to aid with keratinization. Hope this helps.

Excellent presentation, explained in great detail so that I fell comfortable in implanting this immediately on my next case. Question would be could you use the patient's own flood and spin it down in order to get the plugs to use in the sites that you used free-gingival graft tissue . Would that work just as well ?

Thank you Dr. Hisham for your beautiful compliments and encouragement! Regards, Sherif

Chuck, Your Words left me speechless!! Thank you for your wonderful comment! I do believe that CT grafting and enhancing the tissue biotype is really of crucial importance in the esthetic zone, whenever the pt. is willing and the esthetic demands are high. With regards to DFDBA, i agree with you that FDBA may seem to outperform the demineralized grafts, but the literature is there. TBH i was not really a believer until i saw the cases, yet again the drawback of the time needed to mineralize may make it inferior to the mineralized counterparts. As for the PET philosophy I'm all for it, I've been monitoring your cases on the forum and you're approach and results are unquestionable, however, i do believe careful case selection is key in those cases. My case results are definitely short term, but were able to give me an idea of how different approaches would perform in my hands, so the question is how long will they hold?? Thank you again for your Beautiful words and compliments. Best regards, Sherif

Emphasis will be placed on the benefits of the augmentation technique on revascularization: the use of autologous bone grafts on a scaffold of xenograft material saturated in PRP (Platelets Rich Plasma), covered with PPP (Platelets Poor Plasma). Soft tissue manipulation with role-up technique is demonstrated prior to implants placement.
Six months after implants placement, the second phase of uncovering is shown.

Horizontal Bone Augmentation Using the “SPLIT BONE BLOCK TECHNIQUE” Step by Step - Part 1 of 2
Bone atrophies are one of the most challenging situations in modern implantology. Several techniques have been proposed to be able to place implants in those atrophic situations. This first presentation will show step by step the Split Bone block technique as described by Dr. Khoury to perform horizontal bone augmentation procedures. Bone biology is also explain in order to understand why this technique offer us some great advantages. The second presentation will focus of vertical bone augmentation procedures using this same technique but through a tunnel approach. The advantages of this approach will also be described in this 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.

Complete Management of the Implant Site: From Simple Cases to Complex Situations
The health and the structure of the peri-implant tissue is vital for a long term prognosis of aesthetic and functional dental treatments. The prevalence of peri-implant diseases and recessions is a problem that must be overcome by a perfect treatment planning, along with a step-by-step design of the future restorations. When the clinician places an implant, he must consider the 3D positioning regarding the hard and soft tissue. When one decide to restore an implant, he must be aware of the gingival volume and it’s position. In this presentation, we want to show fully documented cases, from bone grafting, soft tissue enhancement, to final restorations.

BMP, PRP, PRGF and PRF; At the Edge of Regenerative Surgery
Biological modifiers and growth factors are substances that the body produces naturally in response to injury or disease. The use of these substances in regenerative procedures has made hard and soft tissue regeneration more predictable while accelerating healing and decreasing patient morbidity. This webinar will review the wound healing process and the role that growth factors play in regeneration. BMP, PRP, PRF and PRGF will be reviewed and their clinical applications will be demonstrated. At the end of this webinar the participant will have a good understanding of the differences between these biological modifiers and their benefits.

A Novel Strategy for Bone Integration and Regeneration: Case Studies
Ultraviolet light treatment of dental implants immediately prior to placement, or photofunctionalization, is a novel clinical tool with the potential to improve implant therapy. Photofunctionalization improves the surface properties of titanium surfaces by removing hydrocarbons, regenerating hydrophilicity, and optimizing electrostatic properties. We photofunctionalizated dental implants and titanium mesh (Ti mesh) in two complex clinical cases requiring simultaneous guided bone regeneration, sinus elevation, immediate implant placement into the extraction socket, and esthetic consideration

Guided Bone Regeneration Using a Titanium Membrane at Implant Placement: A Case Report and Literature Discussion

Guided Bone Regeneration Using a Titanium Membrane at Implant Placement: A Case Report and Literature Discussion
Reconstruction of the oral supporting tissues lost by disease or trauma is essential to tooth replacement with dental implant therapy. This treatment requires evidence based augmentative procedures combined with up-to-date and current techniques. Guided bone regeneration (GBR) aims to initialize this process of alveolar ridge reconstruction by utilizing biologically active and supportive materials best coupled to the body’s healing processes. The use of nonresorbable, titanium membranes can achieve GBR by ensuring graft stability and space maintenance so as to ensure optimal neovascularization. Hereafter is a case report of a ridge defect reconstructed at implant placement, with the rationale and current, evidence-based literature discussed.
