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

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.

The Rotated Palatal Pedicle Flap:  A Powerful Connective Tissue Grafting Technique Premium Member Content

The Rotated Palatal Pedicle Flap:  A Powerful Connective Tissue Grafting Technique
The rotated palatal pedicle flap was first described in 1999 and has become an essential tool in our box of tricks for implant and soft tissue and bone augmentation surgery. It is a vascularized pedicle graft that helps us achieve excellent soft tissue bulk, increased amounts of attached gingiva and awesome soft tissue contours.  It is also important in double flap closure for passive flap closure and many many more treatment options. This webinar will detail the exact techniques to allow you to carry out this excellent grafting procedure as well as many tips and tricks for simplifying and demystifying this technique.

Prosthetic Soft Tissue Development From Single to Full Arch Reconstruction Premium Member Content

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 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.

Mucosal Coronally Positioned Flap for the Management of Excessive Gingival Display in the Presence of Hypermobility of the Upper Lip and Vertical Maxillary Excess: A Case Report

Mucosal Coronally Positioned Flap for the Management of Excessive Gingival Display in the Presence of Hypermobility of the Upper Lip and Vertical Maxillary Excess: A Case Report
Excessive gingival display is a frequent finding that can occur because of various intraoral or extraoral etiologies. This report describes the use of a mucosal coronally positioned flap for the management of a gummy smile associated with vertical maxillary excess and hypermobility of the upper lip. For patients desiring a less invasive alternative to orthognathic surgery, the mucosal coronally positioned flap is a viable alternative. We demonstrate short-term successful use of this technique for the management of excessive gingival display in the presence of slight vertical maxillary excess and hypermobility of the upper lip. Long-term follow-up studies are needed to determine stability of the results.

Bone Regeneration and Tissue Acceptance of Human Fascia Lata Grafts Adjacent to Dental Implants

Bone Regeneration and Tissue Acceptance of Human Fascia Lata Grafts Adjacent to Dental Implants
The biologic principle of guided tissue regeneration (GTR) has been studied extensively in hopes of regenerating alveolar bone. Various materials have been utilized as regenerative membranes; however, all materials have disadvantages, and the ideal membrane material is yet to be identified. In this case report, human freeze-dried fascia lata strips were used as a regenerative barrier membrane in conjunction with the placement of endosseous root implants and demineralized, freeze-dried bone allograft.…

Changes in Soft Tissue Dimensions Following Three Different Techniques of Stage-Two Surgery: A Case Series Report
The aim of this case report is to compare the resilts of the increase in keratinized mucosa using three different techniques of stage-two surgery. Thirty-two patients with one to eight dental implants who received prosthetic rehabilitation of the maxilla were included. Patients were divided into three groups based on preoperative anatomical considerations. Stage-two surgery was performed using wither the apically repositioned flap, the roll flap, or an apically repositioned flap combined with a connective tissue graft.
