Modern Day Esthetic Challenges with Implants in the Esthetic Zone

Description:
Current trends in implant therapy advocate clinical techniques thereby allowing treatment efficiency consisting of condensed clinical procedures, fewer patient appointments, and shortened overall treatment time. Even though there is overwhelming literature to support positive outcomes in regards to implant survival through immediate implant therapy and tooth replacement strategies, esthetics questions still loom, specifically how to handle multiple tooth sites in the esthetic zone. This presentation will address treatment planning strategies with multiple tooth sites incorporating teeth, immediate implants with tooth replacement, and pontics in the esthetic zone. Innovations in implant macro design, to achieve more consistent screw-retained definitive restorations, and devices / strategies in provisional restoration fabrication to save time will be presented.

Dr Chu: what you think about the form of the pontic square? it means 90o than you very much for your presentation

Alberto Miselli - (5/23/2018 10:59 AM)

Dear Stephen Chu: How I enjoyed your lecture, as always with very clear ideas, about the nourishment of perimplant tissues. According to the Borg Group article, they talked of create more space in the area closest to the implant platform. Now, in the article by Pablo Galindo and Alberto Monje, where they said that the distance between the edge of the crown and the implant platform should be at least two millimeters. On the other hand, Tomas Linkevicius and his article on mucosa thickness l, greater than 3 mm to preserve or crest. Well, in my humble opinion and clinical experience, in edentulous areas, where the biological space, the gingiva contour and the papillae have been lost, everything depends on the prosthetic design, the wax up will indicate the zenith and to what depth we will insert the implant, the vertical mucosal tissue and the phenotype. I want to say that it is a three-dimensional, biological and mechanical approach so that all the precepts are fulfilled, that you, in a very didactic way, exposed in your webinar and all the articles that you have made reference. I lacked to say about subcritical design, very well explained by Alberto Monje et al and Ernesto Lee et al. where the convexity or concavity depends on the buccal - palatal position of the implant and the volume of the oral mucosal roof. In conclusion, many concepts that we must take into consideration. Thank you for everything you've done to make us better implantologists. Best regards Alberto Miselli

Is There One or More Reasons to Optimize the PRF & PRP Protocols? Future Trends in Dentistry, Orthopedics and Facial Aesthetics
The “Advanced” PRF (A-PRF) and “Injectable” PRF (I-PRF) protocols were designed with this new concept. Indications are numerous in all medical fields where we need regeneration: bone, cartilage, skin etc... However, the use of growth factors is not a guarantee of long term stability, as they are active only at the beginning of the process. Numerous rules of tissue engineering have to be applied to maintain the regenerated bone through an adequate blood supply: this lecture is an enlightenment on the biological and mechanical conditions for long term stability of the bone: “grafted bone” or “bone around implants”.

The Evolving Role of Soft Tissue Enhancement in Esthetic Reconstructive Dentistry Premium Member Content

The Evolving Role of Soft Tissue Enhancement in Esthetic Reconstructive Dentistry
Soft tissue grafting techniques, new regenerative materials and bioactivators will be highlighted. The expanding role of allograft materials (Perioderm), platelet rich in growth factors (PRGF, PRF), and when to utilize them will be suggested. The ability of these combined protocols to alter the soft tissue profile around natural teeth, implants, and dentulous ridges, will be reviewed as to its critical role in "Complete Esthetics".

The Dual Zone Approach to Tooth Replacement in the Esthetic Zone Premium Member Content

The Dual Zone Approach to Tooth Replacement in the Esthetic Zone
Improvements in implant designs have helped advance successful immediate anterior implant placement into fresh extraction sockets. Clinical techniques described in this presentation will enable practitioners to achieve predictable esthetic success using a method that limits the amount of buccal contour change of the extraction site ridge and potentially enhances the thickness of the peri-implant soft tissues coronal to the implant-abutment interface. This approach involves atraumatic tooth removal without flap elevation, and placing a bone graft into the residual gap around an immediate fresh-socket anterior implant with a screw-retained provisional restoration acting as a prosthetic socket seal device. Long term follow up and evidence from scientific literature to support this concept will be described.

Combination Therapies in the Esthetic Zone: Steps for Success
This presentation will cover the critical aspects to consider for deciding the sequence and implementation of combination therapies. Successful esthetic zone treatment must begin with a well thought-out space management plan. This plan involves a three dimensional adjustment of the periodontal attachment, with a possibility of root submergence and partial extraction technique. Following this, a decision is made concerning the timing and position of implant placement, and an adequate hard tissue foundation can be restored using GBR with titanium mesh and collagen membrane. On top of this base a more efficient soft tissue augmentation and adjustment completes the requirements for success in the esthetic zone.

Positive & Negative Factors in Stem Cells & Wound Healing: Solutions for Long Term Stability
The main factor for soft and hard tissue healing is the speed and quality of new vascularization. This lecture will present all the positive and negative factors who control the angiogenesis, blood supply and bone metabolism: -Biological factors as vit. D and cholesterol have to be checked before the surgery -The management of the flaps with sutures is one the main factor for the bone and soft tissue maintenance.. -The soft brushing technique is a new technique which increases the flap without periosteal incision nor bleeding. -Careful Implant placement without too much torque, specially in cortical bone or grafted bone at the re-entry.. -The A-PRF liquid and i-PRF are solutions to reduce the mobility of the granules (sticky bone) with an improvement of angiogenesis The use of growth factors is a stimulation of angiogenesis. The prevention of the negative factors will allow us to achieve the long term stability.

A Novel Approach to Root Coverage: The Pinhole Surgical Technique

A Novel Approach to Root Coverage: The Pinhole Surgical Technique
Free connective tissue graft techniques are currently considered the most predictable surgical method for root coverage. However, morbidity associated with secondary graft sites has generated interest in other methods. The purpose of this study was to investigate the feasability of a novel surgical approach to root coverage: the pinhole surgical technique (PST). The retrospective study examined the results of PST used for 43 consecutive patients on 121 recession sites, of which 85 were Class I or II and 36 were Class III. The documented results indicate that PST holds promise as a minimally invasive, predictable, effective, and time and cost-effective method for obtaining optimal patient-based outcomes.
