TEETH 2013: When to Save and When to Extract and When to Regenerate

Description:
The treatment of periodontally compromised patients has been significantly altered by the availability of predictable implant dentistry. Where in the past, a compromised tooth with advanced bone loss and/or furcation invasion might have been retained, the high success rate of osseointegrated implants challenges the clinical decision. Should the tooth be saved with periodontal regeneration or be replaced with an implant? Conversely, new biomimetic mediators have enhanced the predictability of regenerative outcomes and encourage endeavors to maintain the natural dentition. This lecture will address the clinical decision that occurs in every practice: save the tooth or place an implant.

Hi Dr.Nevis, I am a student at UCLA. What a great refreshing lecture. Thank you so much.

Hi,Dr.Nevis!
My name is Tomislav Domic from Croatia.
Great lecture!
What do you think about EMD(Emdogain)? and combination EMD with autogenous or allograft bone?
Do you use antibiotics after you do regenerative surgery?

Tom; Most periodontal cases typically have bone loss interproximally. How would you think the results would be "without facial bone support"? Less walls, less regeneration, less soft tissue support. Thanks for your question. Dr. Salama

I note that the regeneration cases always had a facial bone to suuport the soft tissues. What were the results without facial bone

good THANKS YOU

good

Dr. Nervins, thank you for sharing, it is a great video. What is your experience with using allograft, alloplast ,xenograft instead of autograft, or allograft with growth factor in many of your presented cases above? The reason I am asking is I have seen many similar cases nowadays using Bi-oss, mFDBA/DFDBA? Thanks.

Very nice presentation. One has always to remember the fact that periodontitis normally has a very slow rate of progression (0.15 mm/ y). Do you feel the McGuire/Nunn criteria should be modified? Regenerative therapy is a nice topic but a little overestimated in my opinion because most defects are horizontal as a result of a slow progressing chronic periodontitis. How often do you utilize resective perio surgery in the molar region? I feel the topic is almost forgotten in modern dentistry. Thank you.

Interesting topic that makes me want to evaluate so called "hopeless" teeth more closely. Thnx Dr. Podilsky

The Free Gingival Graft...Back to Basics: Why Do It?
In this video, a free gingival graft is demonstrated to address a recession defect as well as to augment the soft tissue while eliminating the high frenum pull in order to aid in the orthodontic treatment plan of a young patient. While commonly shunned for the morbidity associated with palatal grafts, the free gingival graft is making a comeback with the popularity of implant dentistry due to it's relative simplicity and predictability for augmenting thin tissue. This "back to basics" video takes the free gingival graft back to its roots: The lower incisor area.

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

Zero Bone Loss Protocol: 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.

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.
