Modern Implant Concepts in the Esthetic Zone

Description:
Managing aesthetic zone with dental implants is one of the most challenging and demanding treatments in dentistry due to biological limitations. From Sockets type I to healed ridges with hard and soft tissue deficiencies, everyday clinicians may face different situations to manage in the aesthetic zone. When we are talking about rebuilt and have long term success, autogenous hard and soft tissue still are the gold standard as the Socket shield technique promises to be to prevent bucal collapse in Immediate Implants. During the lecture the author will systematize how to face each different clinical situation, utilizing different autogenous tissues combined with a micro surgical approach, in order to have the best healing patterns and scar-less surgery.

Apical Mattress Suture: Prevention of "Oxidative Stress" of Bone & Soft Tissue

Apical Mattress Suture: Prevention of "Oxidative Stress" of Bone & Soft Tissue
It’s impossible to heal well and fast when the tissue is in oxidative stress.. It occurs when there is an excess of oxidants or deficiency of antioxidants: smokers and diabetics have issues because they are in chronic oxidative stress... Tension free flap closure in mandatory. Otherwise, soft tissue and bone will fall in oxidative stress. The solution is to suture the flaps with an adequate technique. In this presentation, we show how to achieve soft tissue immobility and fixed buccal flap. How to manage the sutures? When to remove them? What’s the best material? How to handle a flat knot and the following knots? How to increase the soft tissue thickness? etc… All details and clinical follow-up are described in this short presentation.

Hard and Soft Tissue Augmentation: Optimizing Esthetic Results for the Restorative Dentist
Contemporary patient expectations have made esthetics a major requisite of all treatment plans, especially in situations where there is a high smile line. Although new restorative materials have highly improved predictability and esthetic outcomes, soft and hard tissue management play a fundamental role when working in esthetic areas. To achieve ideal esthetics, preservation of the natural soft and hard tissue architecture is a primary clinical objective. These new proposed techniques illustrate the importance of pre-prosthetic soft and hard tissue management when working in highly esthetic compromised areas.

Cirugía plástica periodontal para aumento de tejido blando alrededor de implantes Premium Member Content

Cirugía plástica periodontal para aumento de tejido blando alrededor de implantes
En la actualidad, los objetivos de la odontología han ido evolucionado a partir de las necesidades y las demandas de los procesos quirúrgicos, así como por los defectos o lesiones del periodonto, sobretodo cuando intervienen factores estéticos, donde se requieren restauraciones prostodónticas con aspectos naturales, que busquen un equilibrio armónico entre la arquitectura gingival y el rostro en sí del paciente, aún más en los casos donde se presenta sonrisa gingival. Es por esto que se han estudiado varias técnicas mucogingivales para recubrimientos de recesiones, cambios de color por biótopo muy fino, aumento de volumen por pérdida del contorno gingival y colapso de los tejidos duros y blandos; siendo la más estudiada el injerto de tejido conectivo, como mecanismo de compensación y estabilidad para contribuir a una sonrisa más armónica y bella a la hora de la rehabilitación con implantes en el área anterior.

Surgical & Restorative Management in the Aesthetic Zone
Very often anterior tissue and tooth deficiencies require a multi-disciplinary approach to correct. This presentation reviews several classic techniques in managing these challenging cases including; Orthodontic extrusion, soft tissue and hard tissue augmentation and restorative selection. A quantifiable strategy and case selection is presented as well as several options that should be considered.

From Extraction to Prosthetic Restoration: Considerations for the Esthetic Zone Premium Member Content

From Extraction to Prosthetic Restoration: Considerations for the Esthetic Zone
This webinar will highlight surgical and restorative techniques to accomplish predictable outcomes in the esthetic zone with implant therapy. Treatment modalities will be demonstrated with high quality photography and case series discussion. Surgical modalities presented will include ridge preservation, the current evidence on the use of growth factors such as PRP and hr-PDGF bb. Also timing of implant placement as well as soft and hard tissue augmentation will be discussed. Special emphasis will be placed on immediate provisionalization of implants to accomplish optimal peri-implant mucosa architecture. Techniques to transfer provisional emergence profile to the final restoration will be presented.

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.

Surgical Veneer Grafting - Compensation for Natural Labial Plate Remodeling After Immediate Implant Placement

Surgical Veneer Grafting - Compensation for Natural Labial Plate Remodeling After Immediate Implant Placement
Contemporary implant therapy aims to provide highly esthetic and predictable treatment outcomes while decreasing treatment duration and complexity. The clinician must therefore be cognizant of circumstances with a predisposition toward esthetic outcomes and treatment plan accordingly. Preservation of the surrounding hard and soft tissues associated with an immediate postextraction socket implant to replace a nonrestorable tooth in the esthetic zone is one of the greatest challenges facing the dental team. A case report of a hopeless maxillary left central incisor in a patient with a thin periodontal phenotype illustrates this new surgical and prosthetic approach. Clinical, radiological, and esthetic parameters were recorded to evaluate primary treatment outcomes.

Oral Soft Tissue Laser Ablative and Coagulative Efficiencies Spectra

Oral Soft Tissue Laser Ablative and Coagulative Efficiencies Spectra
The key to the success of soft tissue lasers is their ability to cut and coagulate the soft tissue at the same time. Present work is aimed to derive the wavelength-dependent differences in photo-thermal ablation and coagulation efficiencies for oral soft tissue pulsed dental Near-IR Diode, Mid-IR Erbium and IR CO2 lasers. Even though the soft tissue photothermal ablation has been extensively studied, there remains a discrepancy between (a) the widely proliferated notion about efficient Near-IR 800-1,100 nm laser ablation of the oral soft tissue, and (b) studies reporting the inefficient soft tissue Near-IR absorption/ablation. Indeed, the notions about “the key to the usefulness of the Nd:YAG is that this wavelength is highly absorbed in oral soft tissue”, and “all currently available dental laser instruments and their emission wavelengths have indications for use for incising, excising... oral soft tissue surgery”, contradict an observation illustrated here...

The Management of Recession Midfacial to Immediately Placed Implants in the Aesthetic Zone

The Management of Recession Midfacial to Immediately Placed Implants in the Aesthetic Zone
Immediate placement and loading protocols are the most technique sensitive and at the highest risk of complication, especially in the aesthetic zone. The peri-implant tissues undergo a resorption pattern that may see exposure of parts supporting the restoration, otherwise intended to be submerged, with extreme aesthetic compromise or even complete failure of treatment. The literature is not definitive in terms of any one treatment modality to recover such a complication. Grafting the exposure by a guided bone regeneration technique and an adjunct soft tissue augmentation could well restore an unaesthetic recession exposure. Recovery of midfacial recession by soft tissue augmentation alone may be successful, as is presented hereafter.
