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 great lecture

Beautiful and outstanding! Thank you!

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

Rahul Kothari - (6/14/2016 12:07 AM)

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

Hamid Kazemi - (5/15/2016 4:02 PM)

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)

Dr. Kazemi this is absolutelt what our membership wanted and needed. Simply outstanding!!! Thanks so much. Dr. Salama

The Esthetic Reconstructive TRIAD: "GBR, GTR and Tissue Molding"
Implant dentistry in the esthetic zone is highly challenging. In recent years there are several studies, well defined approaches available on how to achieve pleasing outcomes. We must understand the biology of extraction sites and different treatment options for preserving or even reconstructing bony structures for predictable implant placement. This clinical and evidence based presentation will emphasize the importance of proper 3-dimensional implant placement, show different bone preservation techniques i.e P.E.T. (Partial Extraction Therapy) and how soft tissue grafting can effect the final end result. However we must admit that not only surgery but prosthetic skills have a major influence on our work. Implant placement must be determined with the prosthetic plan in mind! On the other hand abutment design, platform shifting concept as tissue molding “tools” and screw retained solutions will be high-lighted with lots of case presentations.

Modern Day Esthetic Challenges with Implants in the Esthetic Zone Premium Member Content

Modern Day Esthetic Challenges with Implants in the Esthetic Zone
Current trends in implant therapy advocate clinical techniques thereby allowing treatment efficiency consisting of condensed clinical procedures, fewer patient appointments, and shortened overall treatment time. Even though there is overwhelming literature to support positive outcomes in regards to implant survival through immediate implant therapy and tooth replacement strategies, esthetics questions still loom, specifically how to handle multiple tooth sites in the esthetic zone. This presentation will address treatment planning strategies with multiple tooth sites incorporating teeth, immediate implants with tooth replacement, and pontics in the esthetic zone. Innovations in implant macro design, to achieve more consistent screw-retained definitive restorations, and devices / strategies in provisional restoration fabrication to save time will be presented.

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.

Prosthetic Soft Tissue Development From Single to Full Arch Reconstruction
In addition to surgical intervention is the creation of the specific emergence profile that is essential in the aesthetic zone. The emergence profile composed of 2 parts, the abutment and the subgingival part of the crown. The shape of abutment can be individually shaped so that it gives natural appearance and varies individually (depending on the depth, angulation and diameter of the implant). Sometimes it even dictates the implant position. From a surgical perspective, soft tissue height, position and thickness need to be diagnosed and corrected when needed. From the prosthetic point of view, the emergence profile has to be created to mimic the natural appearance and maintained over time in respect to the biological changes. The course teaches step by step how to be successful with implant prosthetics from single tooth, partially edentulous to full arch reconstruction.

Connective Tissue & Bone Graft for Anterior Immediate Implant Placement
Immediate implant placement in a one-stage approach, with or without provisionalization, has proven to be advantageous in preserving gingival anatomy around dental implants. But placing implants immediately in the changing alveolar bone of an extraction socket can result in progressive recession of the gingival labial margin over the implant restoration. Thicker biotypes and bone of the labial periimplant tissue have been shown to promote long-term stable gingival margins. A surgically simple technique…

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.
