Integrative Management of the Gummy Smile: Lip repositioning, Crown Lengthening & Restorative Nuances

Description:
The gingival smiles can be mild, moderate and severe , according to the degree of gingival exposure while smiling . Depending on the etiology of the problem , mild and moderate gummy smiles can be treated with moderate periodontal plastic surgery , however for severe , this procedure is not enough . Currently botox is used as alternative, but this is only a temporary treatment of very short effectiveness. That is why we suggest the technique of surgical repositioning of the upper lip as an effective and definitive alternative to solve this aesthetic problem. We present Marjorie´s case, a 20 years old girl with a severe gummy smile , the patient presents her facial thirds well proportioned so a skeletal problem is discarded. We planned and performed surgery surgical repositioning of upper lip , followed , after three weeks of periodontal plastic surgery on ten of her upper pieces from second to second premolar. After two weeks impression was taken to process ten veneers . We also present part of the elaboration process of the veneers by our laboratory

Socket -Shielded Implant for Externally Resorbing Canine
This 50yr.+ female showed external/internal resorption of tooth #11. Socket Shield technique was used saving the facial and interproximal of the tooth. Remainder of tooth was removed by vertically sectioning the tooth with surgical burs in 45 degree high-speed handpiece. Implant placed was a 4.6 x 15mm Tapered Plus Biohorizon implant. Mineross was mixed with saved bone and placed in gap areas. An Emax bonded Maryland bridge was then bonded to adjacent teeth for a temporary replacement. The implant, healing collar and graft were covered with PRF. Nine day post op is shown. This case will be closely followed and posted on XP.

Treatment of the Mesial Concavity of Maxillary 1st Bicuspids in Comprehensive Periodontal and Restorative Cases
This video will discuss one of the most difficult areas to treat definitively, the mesial concavity of maxillary 1st bicuspids. Techniques will be evaluated whereby the surgeon can treat the cause of periodontal problems rather than the effects. A step by step presentation of removal of the concavity and the proper restoration of the post treated root surface will be shown.

Surgical Concepts to Treat Esthetic Implant Disaster Cases - Part 2 of 2 Premium Member Content

Surgical Concepts to Treat Esthetic Implant Disaster Cases - Part 2 of 2
The utilization of dental implants in the esthetic zone is a challenge for involved clinicians. With the increasing application of dental implants by non-experienced colleagues, the occurrence of esthetic failures with implant supported restorations is raising. This lecture will address the causes for such esthetic failures and the surgical approach for therapy. In most cases, implant removal is necessary, which must be done with a low-trauma technique to avoid additional bone loss. Today, this is done with special implant removal instruments using the Reverse Torque Technique. In addition, these failures are often characterized by a lack of keratinized mucosa. The current strategies for the reestablishment of keratinized mucosa and for the augmentation of missing bone, mainly on the facial aspects are presented and documented with case reports. This includes aspects of timing, surgical techniques, and the selection of appropriate biomaterials.

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.
