The Management of Soft Tissue Complications in Implant Dentistry

Description:
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.

Thank you for an excellent presentation. I have two questions: why zenograft vs. allograft for your bone graft and have you done any cases with the L-PRF?

Minimally Invasive Protocols for Total Esthetic Reconstructions Premium Member Content

Minimally Invasive Protocols for Total Esthetic Reconstructions
One of the biggest challenges that we dentists have are those cases that require a multidisciplinary approach which traditionally were managed using invasive and long term treatments. Nowadays, and depending on the case, the contemporary dentist can offer minimally invasive treatments which allow us to modify the shape of the hard and soft tissues. The combination of surgical lip repositioning with periodontal plastic surgery yields highly effective results in the treatment of gummy smiles. During patient examination it is important to establish the etiology responsible for the excessive gingival display. The combined technique can be considered as an alternative option to more invasive procedures. The prognosis is acceptable and the patient realizes that the esthetic problem has been minimized.

Managing Esthetic Implant Complications Premium Member Content

Managing Esthetic Implant Complications
Dental implant success today is judged not only by osseointegration but also by bone, tissue stability and of course long term esthetic results. Cosmetic predictability can often be difficult to attain, and esthetic implant failures can be multifactorial and patient management issues. Once esthetic implant failures occur, many cannot be fully corrected. Some complications must be addressed by an interdisciplinary dental team. In this summary of case reports, surgical considerations are provided, including cases of facial asymmetry/recession due to facial implant placement or bone loss resulting from technique/treatment failures, as well as papillary deficiencies. Restorative considerations for correcting failures are also discussed.

Esthetic Tissue Reconstruction Around Implants - Part 1 of 2 Premium Member Content

Esthetic Tissue Reconstruction Around Implants - Part 1 of 2
Esthetics in implant-supported restorations is an important clinical objective in contemporary dentistry. Understanding the biological behavior of hard and soft tissues following tooth extraction is the first step to anticipate the physiological tissue remodeling and its consequences. Our objective in these 2 sequencial lectures was to provide straightforward decision trees related to several clinical scenarios observed in routine clinical practice. The 3 fundamental pillars for peri-implant excellence are: restorative-driven implant position, hard and soft tissue reconstruction using different biomaterials and grafts, and prosthetic management. Using this philosophical approach seems to provide esthetic and stable results over time irrespective of the initial clinical condition.

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.

The Critical “Pink” Interface in Esthetic Dentistry—A Cross-Disciplinary Approach: Options, Limitations, and Solutions Premium Member Content

The Critical “Pink” Interface in Esthetic Dentistry—A Cross-Disciplinary Approach: Options, Limitations, and Solutions
This program is a perspective into how cross- disciplinary interface planning has become and integral part of clinical esthetic dentistry, in particular implant diagnostics. Today it is essential to combine “white” tooth esthetics with “pink” gingival aspects. Understanding the individual prosthetic, surgical, and biologic limitations is part of innovative treatment-planning protocols developed in an approach to provide, simplify, and expedite minimally invasive limited therapy. Preemptive CBCT and 3D CAD/CAM planning of soft and hard tissue procedures, implant placement, ridge reduction, and restorative design now utilize new innovative protocols for the entire restoration from top to bottom - implant, abutment, and restoration - and the interfaces in between.

Fibrin Assisted Soft Tissue Promotion (FASTP) Premium Member Content

Fibrin Assisted Soft Tissue Promotion (FASTP)
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.

Aesthetic Crown Lengthening

Aesthetic Crown Lengthening
The rationale for crown lengthening procedures has progressively become more aesthetic-driven due to the increasing popularity of smile enhancement therapy. Although the biologic requirements are similar to the functionally oriented exposure of sound tooth structure, aesthetic expectations require an increased emphasis on the appropriate diagnosis of the hard and soft tissue relationships, as well as the definitive restorative parameters to be achieved. The development of a clinically relevant aesthetic blueprint and attendant surgical guide is of paramount importance for the achievement of successful outcomes.

The Modified IVAN Technique: Hard and Soft Tissue Augmentation at Extraction for Delayed Implant Placement

The Modified IVAN Technique: Hard and Soft Tissue Augmentation at Extraction for Delayed Implant Placement
Failure of a natural tooth may not permit placement of an implant at the time of extraction due to insufficiency in available bone to house the implant. Reconstruction of the extraction socket frequently involves both hard and soft tissue augmentation to provide a site that can house the implant and ridge contours that mimic the adjacent natural anatomy. This situation becomes more problematic in the maxillary anterior due to the anatomy and the lower density of the bone of the premaxilla. The solution is the interpositional vascularized augmentation neogenesis (IVAN), which consists of hard tissue grafts, various barrier membranes, and closure with the pediculated connective tissue graft (PCTG). The modified IVAN (mIVAN) technique achieves the necessary goals and may be used in both delayed and immediate placement situations.

The Management of Immediate Implant Placement to Optimize Aesthetic Outcome in the Anterior Maxilla

The Management of Immediate Implant Placement to Optimize Aesthetic Outcome in the Anterior Maxilla
Following tooth extraction the implant surgeon may select between various implant placement timing and loading protocols. Ideally these are to be determined prior to extraction, be it immediate, early, or late placement. Immediate implant placement even in the aesthetic zone is a literature supported treatment modality with success comparable to alternative placement protocols. Meticulous restorative treatment planning of a tooth destined for extraction is essential. Selecting the appropriate implant and techniques may preserve and ensure natural aesthetics. Utilizing the patient’s own tooth crown can better provisionalize the implant with a ‘walk out as you walk in’ result.
