Combination Therapies in the Esthetic Zone: Steps for Success

Description:
This presentation will cover the critical aspects to consider for deciding the sequence and implementation of combination therapies. Successful esthetic zone treatment must begin with a well thought-out space management plan. This plan involves a three dimensional adjustment of the periodontal attachment, with a possibility of root submergence and partial extraction technique. Following this, a decision is made concerning the timing and position of implant placement, and an adequate hard tissue foundation can be restored using GBR with titanium mesh and collagen membrane. On top of this base a more efficient soft tissue augmentation and adjustment completes the requirements for success in the esthetic zone.

I am a Heartland Dentist and I should have a Premium account. Carolann at Heartland Continuing Education ce@hearland.com should be contacting you to get that arranged and would appreciate notification when that has been completed. Thanks so much, Charles M. Rousseau, D.M.D.

Outstanding result in vertical augmentation and papilla regeneration in vertical defecient sites. Your concept seems to create bone peaks between implant to have more natural looking papilla by using healing abutments on implant as tenting screw to further augment. This technique leave the platform of implants few millimeters subcrestal compared to interproximal bone peaks. Question: how predictable is maintaining these bone.peaks above implant platform?

These presentations will focus open the above concepts but prioritize the diagnostic phase and surgical common denominators required for a successful regenerative outcome. Flap design, space maintenance, bone and membrane selections and tension free closure provides the template for all the new age materials and technologies to be successful in clinical practice.

Cirugía plástica periodontal para aumento de tejido blando alrededor de implantes Premium Member Content

Cirugía plástica periodontal para aumento de tejido blando alrededor de implantes
En la actualidad, los objetivos de la odontología han ido evolucionado a partir de las necesidades y las demandas de los procesos quirúrgicos, así como por los defectos o lesiones del periodonto, sobretodo cuando intervienen factores estéticos, donde se requieren restauraciones prostodónticas con aspectos naturales, que busquen un equilibrio armónico entre la arquitectura gingival y el rostro en sí del paciente, aún más en los casos donde se presenta sonrisa gingival. Es por esto que se han estudiado varias técnicas mucogingivales para recubrimientos de recesiones, cambios de color por biótopo muy fino, aumento de volumen por pérdida del contorno gingival y colapso de los tejidos duros y blandos; siendo la más estudiada el injerto de tejido conectivo, como mecanismo de compensación y estabilidad para contribuir a una sonrisa más armónica y bella a la hora de la rehabilitación con implantes en el área anterior.

The Rotated Palatal Pedicle Flap:  A Powerful Connective Tissue Grafting Technique Premium Member Content

The Rotated Palatal Pedicle Flap:  A Powerful Connective Tissue Grafting Technique
The rotated palatal pedicle flap was first described in 1999 and has become an essential tool in our box of tricks for implant and soft tissue and bone augmentation surgery. It is a vascularized pedicle graft that helps us achieve excellent soft tissue bulk, increased amounts of attached gingiva and awesome soft tissue contours.  It is also important in double flap closure for passive flap closure and many many more treatment options. This webinar will detail the exact techniques to allow you to carry out this excellent grafting procedure as well as many tips and tricks for simplifying and demystifying this technique.

Prosthetic Soft Tissue Development From Single to Full Arch Reconstruction Premium Member Content

Prosthetic Soft Tissue Development From Single to Full Arch Reconstruction
In addition to surgical intervention is the creation of the specific emergence profile that is essential in the aesthetic zone. The emergence profile composed of 2 parts, the abutment and the subgingival part of the crown. The shape of abutment can be individually shaped so that it gives natural appearance and varies individually (depending on the depth, angulation and diameter of the implant). Sometimes it even dictates the implant position. From a surgical perspective, soft tissue height, position and thickness need to be diagnosed and corrected when needed. From the prosthetic point of view, the emergence profile has to be created to mimic the natural appearance and maintained over time in respect to the biological changes. The course teaches step by step how to be successful with implant prosthetics from single tooth, partially edentulous to full arch reconstruction.

Revisiting the Papilla in 2016 - Part 2 of 2
While different surgical techniques can restore most aspects of a ridge deficiency,as part of the soft tissue restorative frame, the regeneration of lost proximal papilla form is surgically limited to those papillae bordered on each side by a pontic The Classification of 6 types of papilla defects is based on the specifics of the restorative support on either side of the individual site,and can therefore be a tooth, implant or pontic, or combinations of the 3.

Esthetic Correction of Gingival Recession Using a Modified Tunnel Technique and an Acellular Dermal Connective Tissue Allograft

Esthetic Correction of Gingival Recession Using a Modified Tunnel Technique and an Acellular Dermal Connective Tissue Allograft
Esthetic correction of gingival recession is an important goal of periodontal therapy. This article describes a surgical technique that combines a modified tunnel technique and an acellular dermal connective tissue allograft. With the aid of vertical incisions, a tunnel is created under the buccal mucosa of the affected tooth. These incisions enable easy access for graft placement and create mobility for gingival coronal positioning. The use of an accelular dermal connective tissue allograft eliminates the need for a surgical palatal donor site. This minimizes post-surgical complications.

Treating Two Adjacent Missing Teeth in the Esthetic Zone - Part 1: The Pink Hybrid Restoration & the Unilateral Versus Bilateral Defect Concept

Treating Two Adjacent Missing Teeth in the Esthetic Zone - Part 1: The Pink Hybrid Restoration & the Unilateral Versus Bilateral Defect Concept
This article, the first of a planned three-part series, outlines a new surgical & prosthetic approach for treating cases involving two missing adjacent teeth in the esthetic zone. These type of cases, particularly when combined with a three-dimensional ridge deficiency, represent one of esthetic dentistry's most challenging dilemmas. A Clear understanding of the unilateral and bilateral defect concept is necessary to properly evaluate each particular case, understand surgical limitations, perform a better risk assessment, establish an esthetic prognosis, develop the best clinical-laboratory strategy, and adjust patients' expectations. While not recommended for every case, represents a useful, economical, and predictable alternative that decreases the umber and complexity of interventions.
