Reconstruction of Large Post-Extraction Defects within the Esthetic Zone

Description:
In this lecture, Dr. Miguel Stanley discusses the reconstruction of large post-extraction defects within the esthetic zone involving both bone and soft tissue deficiencies. The presentation includes a new surgical approach utilizing solid cortical autogenous grafts to plug, augment and stabilize extraction sites in conjunction with a soft tissue graft to create a socket seal. In addition, considerations for thin biotypes are also provided.

Dr.Stanley :Excellent Work ! You mentioned the bone core is at least 2.5 mm in depth , why 2.5 mm ? how do you pick the depth for each case ? I mean is there any differences in deciding the core depth ? THank you ! Dr. Huang TAIWAN

The Cortical block,is round in shape. the alveolar socket is not. It's more triangular, if you will. the graft is slightly wider than the socket, and so it is wedged into place. like a cork. there is no movement at all. great comment at is the single most important thing to achieve success with this technique.

Once again I would like to thank you for your answer. A proof that this is a very interesting topic is the number of questions/comments you're having. In what concers to my second question, I feel it was somehow incomplete. When I mentioned the vascularization it was not only the phenomenom of vascularization itslef that I wanted to ask. I was also concerned with the block fixation and the way that it gets vascularized. The basic keys of success for bone regeneration are space maintenance and graft stability. It has been stated that micromovement has much has 20 microns could jeopardize the success of grafting, resulting sometimes in fibrous tissue Encapsulation. A good idea for your next lectures could probably be, getting some trephine cores and submit it for histomorphometric analysis. Best regards

Dear Hugo and vijailakshmi , thanks for your kind comments. i hope to be able to keep a constant flow of cases here on Dental XP in the future. As for the vascularization of the cortical graft. Remember that it is at least 2,5 mm thick, and although there is a cortical surface , underneath there is the more porous cancellous bone. As the normal socket preservation techniques regenerate, the normal vascularization also "works" on the graft. I have yet to experience no integration of this grafting technique, this also goes for the tissue graft. As for the young age of the patient. I would have to agree with Dr. Garber and Dr. Salama, it's always best to study the Biologic Maturity. The patient in question was quite developed in this sense. However i Look forward to a 2-3-6 year follow up.

David Garber - (2/20/2010 10:53 AM)

Dear Hugo i saw your comments and would agree - it is a great presentation by Dr Stanley - - in response to your third question I think like you Dr Stanley would agree that it appears best to wait until the young implant patient reaches BIOLOGIC maturity and stops growth - as opposed to purely age evaluation - - Dr Salama likes to look at hand /wrist radiograph &/or sequential cephalometric images

First of all I would like to congratulate dr. Stanley for his brilliant presentation. I have some questions that I'd like to adress: 1)In your oppinion where does the vascularization for this cortical bone graft comes from? 2) As far as socket seal procedures the literature reports failures around 40%, mainly because of lack of vascularization. Have you experienced the same? 3)According to your 3rd case , how prudent do you consider to place implants in 16 years old patients? Literature has shown consistently that vertical growth cessation varies from person to person and is seldom related to a specific age. Thank you very much

vijailakshmi acharya - (2/13/2010 11:07 PM)

Thank you Dr.Stanley for great idea of esthetic buccal flap .It makes all the difference .One question --is it ok to do this procedure as early as 16 yrs of age?

VITALII OMELIANCIC - (2/13/2010 3:49 PM)

Thank you! It was very good and helpful presentation!

Hi guys, thanks for the feed back. it appears that the thin biotype is an issue regarding the EBF(esthetic buccal flap). You can see Dr. Steigmann's work on this he brilliantly presents many cases. In my opinion, i use creative thinking when i suture, always a 5-0 plypropelyne suture and always include periosteum in suture for better "grip".
Its imperative to have no tension in these cases.

i never use surgical cement!

I have done a few cases with a collagen plug and results are interesting, however i do lose a bit of height. it all depends on the biotype i guess. I mean is some cases doing nothing we get great results, but its predictability we are after here.

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.

Vertical or Shoulderless Preparations in Contemporary Prosthodontics
Tooth preparations without a defined finish line have been termed in several different ways, such as knife edge, feather edge, or shoulderless. From a biological standpoint, preserving a maximum amount of sound tooth structure, as it is done in vertical preparations, might also offer a more conservative alternative to a horizontal margin design in other clinical conditions such as endodontically treated teeth, vital teeth in young individual, teeth affected by caries at the cervical third. Vertical margins on zirconia crowns have been tested in vitro and clinical reports have been published. A re-evaluation of possible advantages and shortcomings of vertical preparation design in contemporary prosthodontics will be presented in light of recently published literature.

Soft Tissue Management and Functional Mock-Ups
Patients desiring a cosmetic smile improvement can present treatment planning challenges. An excessive display of gingiva resulting from a high lip line often complicates treatment planning and can compromise the final esthetic result. As we evaluate the patient, we often have to ask ourselves, do we “lower the river” (increase tooth length incisally), “raise the bridge” (increase tooth length gingivally) or use a combination of both approaches? This article addresses this issue using a methodological…

Enhancing Esthetics with a Fixed Prosthesis Utilizing an Innovative Pontic Design and Periodontal Plastic Surgery

Enhancing Esthetics with a Fixed Prosthesis Utilizing an Innovative Pontic Design and Periodontal Plastic Surgery
During the past two decades, significant advancements with the integration of periodontal plastic surgery into esthetic restorative dental procedures have received increased attention. While ovate pontics have traditionally been used as a restorative design following augmentation procedures to enhance esthetics, an alternate E-pontic design aims to predictably support and maintain the gingival architecture between a single missing anterior tooth adjacent to a natural tooth or an implant that is in harmony with the lip line and face. In addition, the E-pontic design promotes the gingival facial tissue to coronally migrate over the pontic, creating a gingival sulcus. This article describes an innovative new technique and a pontic design that predictably will develop, support, and maintain the gingival architecture to provide a long-term esthetic and functional outcome.

Esthetic Correction of Gingival Recession Using a Modified Tunnel Technique and an Acellular Dermal Connective Tissue Allograft

Esthetic Correction of Gingival Recession Using a Modified Tunnel Technique and an Acellular Dermal Connective Tissue Allograft
Esthetic correction of gingival recession is an important goal of periodontal therapy. This article describes a surgical technique that combines a modified tunnel technique and an acellular dermal connective tissue allograft. With the aid of vertical incisions, a tunnel is created under the buccal mucosa of the affected tooth. These incisions enable easy access for graft placement and create mobility for gingival coronal positioning. The use of an accelular dermal connective tissue allograft eliminates the need for a surgical palatal donor site. This minimizes post-surgical complications.
