Papilla Regeneration in Patients with Gummy Smile

Description:
A lost interdental papilla is difficult to regenerate. Only a few successful case reports have been published and there are no studies reporting a predictable technique to reconstruct the papilla. In this presentation we talk about the biological determinants of gingival papilla. We show different clinical cases ranging from simple cases, where papilla preservation techniques are applied, to complex cases of patients with gingival smile where we apply papilla regeneration techniques.

Very impressive surgical skills and results. Any attempts to raise bone height by bone grafting possibly by tunneling as well?

Dear Ramón awesome work. Properly scientifically supported & fantasticaly organized and displayed. Thank you, once more for your marvellous presentation. And yes I my self had to get around distance several times. I completely agree with your approach for a quick & predictable result for a patient living so far away. Filipe Lopes.

Modern Crown Lengthening: Classification and Clinical Application Premium Member Content

Modern Crown Lengthening: Classification and Clinical Application
Crown lengthening procedures are indicated to provide adequate tooth structure in case of subgingival tooth fracture or caries, uneven gingival level, un-esthetic short crowns due to the tooth wear, inadequate axial height, altered passive eruption ,forced eruption of a single or multiple teeth and finally in case of gingival smile. The treatment modality for esthetic crown lengthening procedure should be based on detail diagnosis in each case because of the multifactorial etiology and because of the type of therapy selected by the clinician, will have a direct implication for the esthetic result.

“Bernotti V-Y Flap”: A Minimally Invasive Recession Coverage Technique
The Bernotti V-Y Flap, it’s a coronally advanced flap technique with a “V-Y’’ flap design, which consist in a microsurgery technique with or without connective tissue graft, that will improve mucosal biotype and keratinized band in a predictable way for isolated mucosal recession, dehiscence and translucent tissue, at teeth or implants sites.

Zero Bone Loss Protocol - Part I: Influence of Vertical Soft Tissue Thickness on Crestal Bone Stability Premium Member Content

Zero Bone Loss Protocol - Part I: Influence of Vertical Soft Tissue Thickness on Crestal Bone Stability
Crestal bone stability is considered to be important for bone preservation, longevity of implants and to prevent peri-implant tissue recession. Implant placement level is important for bone stability. Mucosal tissue thickness was shown to be the factor having impact on bone stability. It was showed that platform switching does not reduce crestal bone loss, if soft tissues at the implant placement are thin.

Zero Bone Loss Protocol - Part I: Influence of Vertical Soft Tissue Thickness on Crestal Bone Stability
Crestal bone stability is considered to be important for bone preservation, longevity of implants and to prevent peri-implant tissue recession. Implant placement level is important for bone stability. Mucosal tissue thickness was shown to be the factor having impact on bone stability. It was showed that platform switching does not reduce crestal bone loss, if soft tissues at the implant placement are thin. It is suggested that thin tissues might be thickened during implant placement, thus reducing bone resorbtion. The role of soft tissue thickness is well established in aesthetic treatment. It is known that thin soft tissues present an unfavorable situation for implant placement, crestal bone stability and subsequent prosthetic treatment.

Biologic Strategies to Enhance Clinical and Aesthetic Success in Oral Implantology Premium Member Content

Biologic Strategies to Enhance Clinical and Aesthetic Success in Oral Implantology
This webinar will discuss clinical strategies for treatment of the complex implant site involving bone grafting and implant placement. Our understanding of cellular pathways, and our ability to control the wound response, expands our capacity to effect better aesthetic outcomes and compress treatment time. The reduction of the inflammatory phase of tissue regeneration speeds up osseointegration, prevents crestal bone loss, maintains papillary form, increases the density of peri-implant bone and increases tissue biotype. This enhanced tissue response allows us to predictably treat even the most complex surgical cases, compress time to final reconstruction, and to maintain these favorable tissue outcomes over an extended period of time. The use of dental implants with advanced biologic features and the incorporation autologous growth factors will be demonstrated.

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.

Use of the Subepithelial Connective Tissue Graft to Improve Esthetics

Use of the Subepithelial Connective Tissue Graft to Improve Esthetics
The subepithelial connective tissue graft is a gingival grafting plastic surgery procedure that can be used to enhance the aesthetic and gingival contour of the periodontium around dental implants. This technique is described and illustrated to create a soft-tissue root prominence and mask the grey color penetrating the thin labial attached gingival tissues over dental implants.

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.
