Fibrin Assisted Soft Tissue Promotion (FASTP)

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.

Very interesting lecture as always

Thank you Alina for posting this lecture here. I saw your lecture in NYC and this second time seeing the concepts of FASTP really help me move forward with the doing. please so share with us future healing of these cases. atv

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?

Great presentation Alina

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.

Microsurgical Soft Tissue Reconstruction for Teeth & Implants - Part 2 of 2
Esthetics plays a key role in a modern society and the average dental health of the population is improving every day. In such environment, the demands of dental treatments are different and dentists should approach their patients in a different way: they should be prepared to implement different and modern techniques around teeth and implants. Soft tissue grafting techniques provide the dentist with an armamentarium that makes possible to prevent and solve many problems and complications around teeth and implants, making more predictable the treatments results. This presentation is focused in the importance of soft tissue grafting techniques around teeth and implants and how to do it in a predictable, modern and a minimally invasive way. We present many different techniques illustrated with clinical cases.

"The Socket Shield Technique"; Myths & Realities Premium Member Content

"The Socket Shield Technique"; Myths & Realities
Socket Shield Technique is a concept in implant dentistry that utilizes the partial extraction therapy principles, with the goal of preserving the hard and soft tissues around the dental implants. It has been reported to be a very predictable therapy so far. The proper case selection is crucial for the success of the technique. In fact, it is very technique sensitive and requires an advanced level in implant dentistry. Although the technique has a high overall success rate, but long term studies and high evidence level researches are needed to support the proof of principle available. This presentation will discuss and review the "myths & realities" of the new Socket Shield Technique or "PET" (Partial Extraction Therapy) concept.

Restoration of Optimal Esthetics in Complex Clinical Situations

Restoration of Optimal Esthetics in Complex Clinical Situations
Patients often neglect or delay dental care for an extended time because of their negative experiences with and fear of dental treatments. This neglect may result in the advance of periodontitis with severe bone loss, a substantial number of missing teeth, and problems with the remaining teeth. Pre-existing malocculsion can aggravate this condition. This case report demonstrates an interdisciplinary strategic approach, in combination with the use of biologically grounded, clinically proven, and viable techniques and technologies to restore optimal esthetics and function in such complex cases.

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...
