Crown Lengthening in Comprehensive Esthetic Therapy: The Complete Surgical Video A to Z

Description:
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.

How an Optragate would have made your life a lot easier

Thomas Devlin - (6/16/2018 5:47 PM)

Dr. Wong, could you include some information about the dental codes you would use and what you charge for this procedure? I kept thinking about

Dr. Terence YACOVITCH - (6/7/2018 4:18 PM)

Hard tissue laser better than high speed drill, laser would remove bone virtually bloodlessly and not damage root surface !

Dr. Terence YACOVITCH - (6/7/2018 4:14 PM)

Ivoclar's Optragate would also have clear field isolation and lip retraction.

Dr. Terence YACOVITCH - (6/7/2018 4:13 PM)

May we ask why diode laser not used? Cold steel = open wound and bleeding shown. Laser would clean "cut" with sealed, clean wound n'est pas?

sloppy technique poor assistant retraction lip protection and should have used large suction to prevent flooding face

Prevention and Management of Peri-implant Soft Tissue Complications
A variety of soft tissue procedures have been employed for treatment of soft tissue and ridge defects around implant sites. Some of the limitations of current techniques include scar formation at recipient sites due to surface incisions, relapse of recession due to muscle pull during healing, wound dehiscence and graft exposure. This presentation will discuss the myriad flap and incision designs, tunnel techniques as well as grafting options and suturing.

Innovative Sequencing for Interdisciplinary Aesthetic Treatment
Smile enhancement therapy has become an important facet of the everyday aesthetic practice. Aesthetic evaluation utilizing facial aesthetic design to diagnose tooth position demands effective communication between the periodontal-restorative team. This presentation will review innovative sequencing techniques for interdisciplinary cases which require aesthetic crown lengthening for the treatment of excessive gingival display, and for gingival augmentation for root coverage, and the correction of poor gingival quality. Immediate implant placement with immediate non–loaded provisional fabrication will also be reviewed.

Acellular Dermal Grafts in the Correction of Gingival Recession: Discovering the Possibilities Premium Member Content

Acellular Dermal Grafts in the Correction of Gingival Recession: Discovering the Possibilities
Autogenous connective tissue grafts from the palate have been the gold standard for surgically correcting gingival recession for decades. With the advent of newer soft (and hard) tissue allografts, grafting procedures are increasingly predictable, quick, effective, and less painful for patients. In this presentation, follow the evolution of root coverage surgery from autogenous grafts to the more contemporary alternatives of today. Discover how these newer materials are making it easier for patients to say "yes" and how their results can impact the level of esthetics, periodontal health and predictable restorative dentistry our profession can deliver.

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.
