Periodontal Plastic Surgery in the Treatment of the Gummy Smile

Description:
Thanks to the constant advances in modern dentistry we can predict surgical results, stablishing new standards for diagnosis and develop treatments for periodontal plastic surgery as of Altered Passive Eruption by electrosurgery. This is used by the T- shaped regulation, provided by Dr. Chu for the accuracy golden proportions, which has became an innovative way to make cosmetic lengthening of the clinical crowns, covering changes in relations to size, shape, and balance of the teeth to obtain a radical variation in the front aesthetic of patients.

Buena presentación, conceptos cotidianos, pero que en ocasiones los olvidamos

Muy bien Emilio. Felicidades.

Very nice presentation! Me encanto su presentacion! Gracias!

Hello Barry, you can get dr. Chu's guide trough a Hu-Friedy distributor; and the most important thing is that the patient is fully grown up to be able to make bone remodelations procedures...

David Garber - (7/15/2013 7:35 PM)

excellent presentation explaining the complexities of excessive gingival display, and smile design - really nice surgeries , but the title was a little misleading in the translation because the procedures were so much more than simple electrosurgery - electrosurgery was a well selected component of the whole procedure.

Please provide info on obtaining Dr. Chu's guide. If a patient presents with altered passive eruption under 20 years of age, what are the alternatives to treatment. Great presentation!

I agree that the laser is an excellent choice in crown lengthening. But if you are used with electrosurgery and use it low potency and without touching the bone you will never have problems with long term recession.

Edward Kusek - (7/14/2013 9:40 PM)

sorry, but learn to use a laser instead of electrosurge. You increase pain to the patient and increase long term recession

Well done Emilio and beatiful cases.You are a talented young dentist.

Surgical Veneer Grafting: Utilization in Immediate Implant Placement
The management of the digital implant prosthetic dentistry, especially in the anterior esthetic area, is one of the hottest topics in Dentistry. The diagnostic phase is critical. In the course, are discussed all the parameters to achieve the correct diagnosis of the socket and the various treatment plan correlated to each anatomical type of socket. The Dual Zone approach (bone zone and tissue zone) will be evaluated and discussed in detail, regarding each of their variables.

"The Soft Block": Treating Severe Recessions Around Dental Implants - Part 1 of 2
Severe recessions around implants is a common issue. Filipe Lopes & Bernardo Mira Correa will try to present simple algorithms and biological ways for trying to solve this kind of clinical challenge, other than implant explantation that must be also, and so many times, considered as the first choice. This is intended to be the first of a series of posts on the subject. We will feature different soft tissue management strategies, including autologous grafts and alloderm. We will underline the importance of: diagnosis,PRGF ENDORET® graft, type of implant, grafting technique to use and allografts that can possibly help us on some challenging situations. At the end we will try to provide for a simpler treatment algorithm, that has been of good service for us, for some years now.

Periodontal-Prosthesis in Modern Dentistry – Part 1 of 2 Premium Member Content

Periodontal-Prosthesis in Modern Dentistry – Part 1 of 2
Clinicians must be aware of patient expectations when planning dental treatment. When full mouth reconstruction is planned, it is very important to satisfy such expectations in order to provide successful treatment. Patients are often concerned about the cost and duration of treatment, and the pain, esthetics, comfort, and function after treatment. However, we cannot assure longevity unless the treatment has a scientific basis. During reconstruction or restoration, we generally remove and replace the existing crowns. Secondary caries are mostly detected on removal of these. Due to the caries, the ferrule and tooth thickness are not adequate; and frequently, the condition may not be suitable for prosthetic treatment. In such cases, we choose to extract the tooth or perform crown lengthening to retain the tooth.Thse days many teeth that we could retain by crown lengthening procedure are replaced by implants. In this presentation, we describe some cases in which a crown lengthening proce

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.

Surgical Veneer Grafting Protocol: Step-by-Step Utilization in the Esthetic Zone
In the surgical part, it will be described the criteria necessary for successfully utilizing minimally invasive protocols within the esthetic zone and the possibility of placing or not placing a bone graft in the “gap” and the opportunity to use a connective tissue graft to overbuild the site bucco-lingually, performing the Surgical Veneer Grafting Protocol, idea'ed by the Agnini brothers. In the digital prosthetic part, the authors will analyze different cases, highlighting the operational differences that they have developed over time, with the increasing knowledge of new materials and daily advances in new software's.

Restoration of Optimal Esthetics in Complex Clinical Situations

Restoration of Optimal Esthetics in Complex Clinical Situations
Patients often neglect or delay dental care for an extended time because of their negative experiences with and fear of dental treatments. This neglect may result in the advance of periodontitis with severe bone loss, a substantial number of missing teeth, and problems with the remaining teeth. Pre-existing malocculsion can aggravate this condition. This case report demonstrates an interdisciplinary strategic approach, in combination with the use of biologically grounded, clinically proven, and viable techniques and technologies to restore optimal esthetics and function in such complex cases.

The Pontic-Shield: Partial Extraction Therapy for Implant Dentistry

The Pontic-Shield: Partial Extraction Therapy for Implant Dentistry
Augmentive ridge preservation techniques aim to manage the postextraction ridge. The partial extraction of teeth may better preserve the ridge form by maintaining the bundle bone-periodontal tissues and preserve the ridge beneath dentures or fixed prostheses. The socket-shield technique entails preparing a tooth root section simultaneous to immediate implant placement and has demonstrated histologic and clinical results contributory to esthetic implant treatment. A retrospective 10-patient case series treating 14 partial extraction sites demonstrates how a modification of the socket-shield technique can successfully develop pontic sites and preserve the ridge.
