Questions & Comments

Tom; Dr. Han is retired from dentistry now and no longer manages his posts. Some answers for the board based on my own review, sutures 5.0 monofilament and horizontal mattress. This technique would not work well under an existing Pontic and there are better techniques for adjacent root coverage. Best with autologous grafts, less so with ADM. The tissue can be harvested from palate or Tuberosity. Anyone interested Ina hands-on course go to Live course area on DentalXP. Thnx Dr. Salama

please add a video; what is the suturing technique?thank you.

Leonard Smith934 - (8/9/2012 1:04 PM)

I would be interested in how you sutured the connective tissue in place as well as the suture technique to keep the elevated tissue in place.....horizontal mattress sutures?? Where,5-0,6-0?

Dr. Paul Sierra - (1/14/2012 12:10 AM)

Dr. Han, Would this technique also work to augment the ridge under a pontic as well as achieving root coverage of the adjacent natural teeth? Would it work with ADM? Thank you.

Great technique and results. Please comment on root preparation.

Nicolas Aronna - (10/22/2011 7:45 PM)

thanx doctor!

Sacha Wojtan - (9/13/2011 5:06 PM)

WOW! You make it look so easy. Would this approach also work in filling out a gap under a bridge-pontic? And do you take the CT graft from the palate?

Revisiting the Papilla in 2015 - Part 1 of 2
In dental esthetics the regeneration of a compromised papilla , remains the most complex aspect of any reconstructive endeavor. The original 5mm Rule was found to exist only for a papilla bordered by 2 teeth and was expanded into a classification of 6 Types dependent on alternative adjacent support.e. implants or pontics.

What Tissue Changes Can We Expect with Anterior Implant Therapy?
Minimizing soft tissue changes following anterior implant therapy is one of the holy grails in implant dentistry. Gingival recession will not only impact the patient’s esthetics, the difficulties in correcting such problem create further challenges to the clinicians. This presentation will focus on how much soft tissue changes can be expected following implant in the esthetic zone. Discussion will be made as to the etiology of gingival recession and what we can do to prevent it from happening.

This presentation will focus on the interdisciplinary relationship of the restorative dentist, periodontist and orthodontist to reconstruct the soft tissue foundation for all of these restorative options in anterior tooth replacement. The diagnosis of deficiencies as well as the varied treatment options will be discussed in detail. This includes periodontal crown lengthening, esthetic periodontal plastic soft tissue grafting procedures as well as prescription adjunctive orthodontic tooth movement to manipulate the soft tissue foundation prior to or subsequent with the restorative options of implants, bridges, or pontic replacement.

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.
