Fibrin Assisted Soft Tissue Promotion (FASTP) - A New Perspective in Periodontal Plastic Surgery

Description:
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.

Thanks for the wonderful presentation...when is the most appropriate time to remove the suture? And whenjoy to say it's enough volume of APRF during surgery?

Alina, Thank you for the presentation. This presentation is not in my strong suit as to the number of and type of materials that can be obtained from a phlebotomy of a human vein. However, my research in graduated school was under the scrutiny of Dr. Charles Cobb in cellular biology. I have some questions and observations. 1. When slides are shown and you state that the is more volume of new biotype and more keratinized tissue is observed. I'm not sure that I agree that the biotype has changed because biotype is a genetic determination. I agree that the tissue volume is greater but biotype remains the same. In the same slides I see root coverage that is a combination of the marginal keratinized tissue that was coronally repositioned but I don't see and an increase in attached keratinized tissue or the zone of attached keratinized tissue. What I see is thicker tissue and root coverage which is our desired outcome but I don't think we can say that the APRF or IPRF in combination stimulated an increase in keratocytes because in my opinion without histology we cannot make those claims. I have had the some discussion with Pat Allen on his technique with alloderm. According to him it is not necessary to have keratinized attached gingiva on the superficial layer of the gingiva. 2. My objective in mucogingival surgery has been to first increase the zone of keratinized gingiva and in some cases to cover the exposed root surface based on the initial Miller Classification. What I think is interesting is that Danny Melker from Florida has always contended that a visible mucogingival recession is always associated with a underlying defect in the bone that is usually more "hidden" recession. In most of the cases you showed, the root of the teeth was in significant buccal version relative to the alveolar housing. Many of the cases I see the teeth were naturally in buccal version or were positioned there as a result of an orthodontic outcome. 3. The reason I bring this up is that I have seen many many of Danny Melker's connective tissue grafts from the palate and the tuberosity. He seems to be able always obtain a volume of autogenous tissue to graft multiple sites intra-oral. He uses no biologic modifiers or growth factors in his procedures. My observation on most of his cases is that the volume of the gingiva is thick and he is very good at obtaining root coverages. To my knowledge, he also has not show biopsy specimens. The gold standard to determine the biology outcome and anatomical tissues is a biopsy or block section to observe the tissue at hand. Is there new attachment to the previously exposed root and what is or are the tissues that are attaching--bone, PDL, and new cementum or is there some form of epithelial attachment-short of long. Is there more keratination of the tissue and what percentage is attached to the bone or root or both. This may be a mute point when the root is covered but there is no way to scientifically claim what has occurred without the biopsy. I don't care is the tissue coverage was with autogenous, allograft, blood products, or just coronolly repositioned. I hope my comments stimulate some thought and maybe more literature is available to support your conclusions that I am unaware of at this time.

Beautiful presentation. Every time I watch you lecture I’m more grafteful thstvim lucky enough to be in the same city and have you care for my patients. Bravo and thank you.

please identify the decontamination gel used on root surface .Thanx , Fred

Management of Periodontal Complications: Science vs. Hype
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.

Periodontal Plastic Surgery in the Treatment of the Gummy Smile
Thanks to the constant advances in modern dentistry we can predict surgical results, stablishing new standards for diagnosis and develop treatments for periodontal plastic surgery as of Altered Passive Eruption by electrosurgery. This is used by the T- shaped regulation, provided by Dr. Chu for the accuracy golden proportions, which has became an innovative way to make cosmetic lengthening of the clinical crowns, covering changes in relations to size, shape, and balance of the teeth to obtain a radical variation in the front aesthetic of patients.

Zero Bone Loss Protocol - Part I: 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.

Modern Crown Lengthening: Classification and Clinical Application Premium Member Content

Modern Crown Lengthening: Classification and Clinical Application
Crown lengthening procedures are indicated to provide adequate tooth structure in case of subgingival tooth fracture or caries, uneven gingival level, un-esthetic short crowns due to the tooth wear, inadequate axial height, altered passive eruption ,forced eruption of a single or multiple teeth and finally in case of gingival smile. The treatment modality for esthetic crown lengthening procedure should be based on detail diagnosis in each case because of the multifactorial etiology and because of the type of therapy selected by the clinician, will have a direct implication for the esthetic result.

A Periodontal-Restorative Approach to Achieving an Esthetic Outcome in Worn Dentition

A Periodontal-Restorative Approach to Achieving an Esthetic Outcome in Worn Dentition
Esthetic dentistry demands more of clinicians than just simeple knowledge of tooth anatomy and the proper dimensions of teeth. Dentists must also know and understand the proper positions of the teeth in relation to the gingiva, the lips, and entire face. Esthetic measurements are not the only important factors. Other considerations need to include the patient's phonetics and function. A example of a situation where this knowledge and awareness is imperative is in the case of the worn dentition (eg, attrition, abrasion, etc). This article addresses a simple case of how a patients esthetics have been compromised as a result of erosion as well as parafunctional activity (toothbrush abrasion) and how the patient was eventually restored with an interdisciplinary approach between the restorative dentist and the periodontal surgeon.

Ridge Preservation with Modified “Socket-Shield” Technique: A Methodological Case Series

Ridge Preservation with Modified “Socket-Shield” Technique: A Methodological Case Series
After tooth extraction, the alveolar bone undergoes a remodeling process, which leads to horizontal and vertical bone loss. These resorption processes complicate dental rehabilitation, particularly in connection with implants. Various methods of guided bone regeneration (GBR) have been described to retain the original dimension of the bone after extraction. Most procedures use filler materials and membranes to support the buccal plate and soft tissue, to stabilize the coagulum and to prevent epithelial ingrowth.
