"The Soft Block": Treating Severe Recessions Around Dental Implants - Part 1 of 2

Description:
Severe recessions around implants is a common issue. Unhappily this is a problem we have to face in our everyday practice. To deal with it we have to develop strategies to meet our patients expectations. Recessions and peri-implantitis come together very often. Being capable to improve the biological environment around a dental implant may have huge relevance in it´s long-term prognosis. Treatment algorithms proposed by some authors are often very complicated and sometimes frustrating in what comes to results. 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. Emphasis will be also held on tools, the BTI extraction kit, that allow us an easier removal of implants than ever before, reducing dramatically the biological cost of their loss and making it easier to place a new implant. 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.

Hi Roy! I saw your question just now! Thx for watching. In fact this is a very special type of fully epithelized FGG (free gingival graft), so you don´t cover it. Until the end of october 2018 I will publish a brightbook on the technique.

Mansur Roy - (10/5/2017 5:07 PM)

Hi Flipe, Thanks for sharing the case. did you cover the CT graft entirely with the flap?

filipe lopes - (1/6/2017 12:01 PM)

Thx Mo. I posted 2 years and a half ago and the patient still smiles radiantly. That grey collar showing was really an issue for her. Up until now we were succesfull in avoiding expalnting the implant. See u soon in Vegas!

i am sorry but final position is not esthetic...

Maurice Salama - (7/24/2016 8:43 AM)

Excellent and just watched it for a 3rd time....thanks again Maurice

Hi Enrique Trevino! We invite you to also see: Soft Tissue Management - The Pink Contribution to Achieving Esthetic and Long Lasting Smiles, that we also published here on Dental XP! Its shows in detail, our protocol for grafting the donor site with PRGF! we hope you like it too! Best regards Bernardo

Enrique it's nice to see how Sonia Lezyi uses PRGF concomitant with extraordinary soft tissue grafting strategies.

filipe lopes - (10/20/2014 7:41 PM)

Edison thanks for your kind words. Filipe.

Edison Louie - (9/24/2014 10:45 AM)

Filipe, thank you for your kind and prompt response. This is what makes Dental XP so exciting and rewarding. You are one of the gifted presenters who are generous enough to share your knowledge and skills with the clinicians throughout the world.

From Extraction to Prosthetic Restoration: Considerations for the Esthetic Zone
This webinar will highlight surgical and restorative techniques to accomplish predictable outcomes in the esthetic zone with implant therapy. Treatment modalities will be demonstrated with high quality photography and case series discussion. Surgical modalities presented will include ridge preservation, the current evidence on the use of growth factors such as PRP and hr-PDGF bb. Also timing of implant placement as well as soft and hard tissue augmentation will be discussed. Special emphasis will be placed on immediate provisionalization of implants to accomplish optimal peri-implant mucosa architecture. Techniques to transfer provisional emergence profile to the final restoration will be presented.

In the lecture, 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. 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.

Ridge Preservation with Modified “Socket-Shield” Technique: A Methodological Case Series
After tooth extraction, the alveolar bone undergoes a remodeling process, which leads to horizontal and vertical bone loss. These resorption processes complicate dental rehabilitation, particularly in connection with implants. Various methods of guided bone regeneration (GBR) have been described to retain the original dimension of the bone after extraction. Most procedures use filler materials and membranes to support the buccal plate and soft tissue, to stabilize the coagulum and to prevent epithelial ingrowth.
