Restoration of Optimal Esthetics in Complex Clinical Situations

Description:
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. Preexisting malocclusion 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 authors emphasize the importance of carefully planning the timing and sequence of performing periodontal, orthodontic, and implant therapies. The advanced techniques and technologies successfully implemented in this case report include the growth factor and titanium mesh (Ti mesh)-assisted bone augmentation; ovate pontic-mediated, noninvasive soft tissue contouring; and photofunctionalization of dental implants.

amazing presentation.

rocco mele - (9/3/2014 4:18 PM)

Dr. Ishikawa Thanks for the information and the website Rocco

Tomohiro Ishikawa - (9/2/2014 8:11 AM)

Dr Rosembalaum, Important points are flap design, releasing incision, and suture.

Tomohiro Ishikawa - (9/2/2014 8:06 AM)

Dr. Mele. Thank you for your question. We use photofunctionalization immediately before placing implants. I do not think that regular curing ultraviolet light would have the same positive benefits. Please check this website. www.photofunc-implant.org

Dr Bayati, In the future, I will try to include a more detailed explanation in my videos.

Dr Goldstein, Thank you for your comment. We usually use Noritake porcelain.

Dr Ruiz and Dr Vicioso, Thank you very much for your compliments.

Laurent Rosemblaum - (8/26/2014 12:02 PM)

Incredible results.thank you for sharing. The 2 problems that I encountered with T mesh was the tearing of the tissue that happen quite often,and the difficulty to remove it.Do you have any tip about these two issues. Thank you.

rocco mele - (8/25/2014 6:53 PM)

Ohayou gozaimasu Dr Ishikawa: Loved the presentation. Please tell me about photofunctionalization of implants. Do you hit the implant with ultraviolet light before seating the implant. Or is it treated with light before packaging How about exposing the implant to a regular curing ultraviolet before placing. I may be a little naive but my research leaves me more confused. Could you fill in the blanks Rocco Mele DVM eastpointpetclinic.com

Surgical Concepts to Treat Esthetic Implant Disaster Cases - Part 1 of 2 Premium Member Content

Surgical Concepts to Treat Esthetic Implant Disaster Cases - Part 1 of 2
The utilization of dental implants in the esthetic zone is a challenge for involved clinicians. With the increasing application of dental implants by non-experienced colleagues, the occurrence of esthetic failures with implant supported restorations is raising. This lecture will address the causes for such esthetic failures and the surgical approach for therapy. In most cases, implant removal is necessary, which must be done with a low-trauma technique to avoid additional bone loss. Today, this is done with special implant removal instruments using the Reverse Torque Technique. In addition, these failures are often characterized by a lack of keratinized mucosa. The current strategies for the reestablishment of keratinized mucosa and for the augmentation of missing bone, mainly on the facial aspects are presented and documented with case reports. This includes aspects of timing, surgical techniques, and the selection of appropriate biomaterials.

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.

Non-Surgical Periodontal Therapy: Decision Making in the 21st Century Premium Member Content

Non-Surgical Periodontal Therapy: Decision Making in the 21st Century
Non-surgical periodontal therapy is a vital part of everyday dental practice. Since the majority of periodontal therapy is performed by general dentists and dental hygienists, it is critical that clinicians have all of the requisite skills and information needed to perform these services at the highest level possible. The purpose of this presentation is to provide the latest evidence- and practice- based information on periodontal debridement and adjunctive therapies that can improve patient outcomes. Though surgical procedures may still need to be performed in some sites, the majority of inflammatory periodontal disease can be eliminated or reduced significantly using the techniques and protocols discussed in this educational segment on non-surgical periodontal therapy.

Diagnosis, Planning, & Treatment of Altered Passive Eruption; From a Periodontists Perspective
This presentation will teach how to diagnose cases of altered passive eruption based on the radiographic evaluation (with peri-apical rx and CBCT) and how to plan and document a surgical procedure aimed to ‘uncover’ the beautiful and natural hidden enamel. In a world where esthetics is becoming more and more a concern a simple periodontal plastic surgical procedure can re-establish esthetic and balance to the patients affected by this condition.

Surgical Crown Lengthening in a Population With Human Immunodeficiency Virus: A Retrospective Analysis

Surgical Crown Lengthening in a Population With Human Immunodeficiency Virus: A Retrospective Analysis
This report investigates the outcome of CLS procedures performed at an urban dental school in a population of individuals with HIV. Specifically, this retrospective clinical analysis evaluates the healing response after crown lengthening surgery (CLS). Of the 21 patients with HIV examined after CLS, none had postoperative complications, such as delayed healing, infection, or prolonged bleeding. Variations in viral load, CD4 cell count, smoking, platelets, and neutrophils did not impact surgical healing. In addition, variations in medication regimens (highly active anti-retroviral therapy; on pro-tease inhibitors; no medications had an impact. The results of this retrospective analysis show the absence of postoperative complications after CLS in this population with HIV. Additional investigation into this area will help health care practitioners increase the range of surgical services provided to this group of patients.

A Periodontal-Restorative Approach to Achieving an Esthetic Outcome in Worn Dentition

A Periodontal-Restorative Approach to Achieving an Esthetic Outcome in Worn Dentition
Esthetic dentistry demands more of clinicians than just simeple knowledge of tooth anatomy and the proper dimensions of teeth. Dentists must also know and understand the proper positions of the teeth in relation to the gingiva, the lips, and entire face. Esthetic measurements are not the only important factors. Other considerations need to include the patient's phonetics and function. A example of a situation where this knowledge and awareness is imperative is in the case of the worn dentition (eg, attrition, abrasion, etc). This article addresses a simple case of how a patients esthetics have been compromised as a result of erosion as well as parafunctional activity (toothbrush abrasion) and how the patient was eventually restored with an interdisciplinary approach between the restorative dentist and the periodontal surgeon.
