Vestibuloplasty: Indications and Techniques

Description:
 Following the complete loss of teeth, the alveolar bone undergoes various degrees of resorption, particularly in response to tissue-supported conventional dentures. This results in loss of vestibule and decreased surface area for denture support. In this presentation, Dr. H. Ryan Kazemi reviews various vestibuloplasty procedures that have been described for restoring the vestibular depth and increasing denture surface area. Additionally, he discusses the application of vestibuloplasty in the management of patients with bone augmentation and implants who commonly present with decreased vestibular depth, the inadequate zone of keratinized gingiva, and thin soft tissue biotype. A step-by-step surgical technique is presented that will increase vestibular depth, the zone of attached gingiva, and soft tissue thickness for enhanced aesthetics and function of dental implants.

Simply outstanding...really a teacher..Thanks Maurice

if we leave the periosteum raw, will it heal by secondary intension? if this is possible then we dont need to take graft from palate. anywhichways we are leave the donor site raw

Thank you all for your feedback. The graft around implants #19 and 20 was indeed Alloderm and having it exposed is not an issue particularly when there is small gaps. Even in large areas over coverage where Alloderm is entirely exposed when placed on top of perisoteum, it incorporates and heals predictably with regeneration of new keratinized gingiva.

Ryan, Just beautiful display of the foundation of pre prosthetic surgery -Bravo

Carl Choi - (5/14/2016 10:35 PM)

Dr. Kazemi, in the case shown at the 15:00 mark where you are grafting around implants 19 and 20--are you using alloderm? Any issues with leaving it exposed? Thank you for your excellent presentation.

Maurice Salama - (5/14/2016 2:56 PM)

Soft Tissue Grafting Around Compromised Dental Implants in the Esthetic Zone
Dental implant esthetics can be challenging, but these challenges are magnified when a patient has had multiple failed implant and bone grafting surgeries.  This video demonstrates the treatment of one such case.  This is a surgical video demonstrating the VIP-CT (Vascularized Interpositional Connective Tissue) graft.  While multiple treatment options exist, this start-to-finish video highlights the patient's initial presentation, the surgical technique, and the final outcome at 2 years.

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.

Using an Acellular Dermal Matrix for Increasing Keratinized Tissue Around Dental Implants
In previously published articles, investigators concluded that gingival recession may affect up to 90% of the population. Gingival recession ranges from one to three millimeters and is predominantly noted on the buccal surfaces of molar, premolar, and lower incisor teeth. Although surgical grafting techniques have traditionally been used to restore these recession sites, an acellular allograft material has recently been developed for increasing the zone of keratinized tissue surrounding teeth and…

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…
