Fundamentally Changing Soft Tissue Grafting Fundamentally Changing Soft Tissue Grafting

Summary:

Soft tissue augmentation procedures to increase the existing zone or create a new zone of keratinized tissue have been classically, and are routinely, performed using the patient's palate as the donor material. This article describes the simplistic use of a periodontal material that can be used for soft tissue augmentation procedures without using the patient's own palate to procure the donor tissue. This periodontal material is an acellular dermal allograft that has been used extensively in medicine. This material, AlloDerm from Dentsply Implant, is a new dermal allograft with improved color and contour match, decreased patient morbidity, uniform material thickness, decreased doctor chairside time, and less postoperative pain experienced with the trauma associated with palatal autografts.

Bipolar Electrosurgery: Gingival Modification in Passive Eruption
Excessive gingival display can affect the total aesthetics of a smile, becoming its focus instead of its frame. This can be the result of passive eruption of the gingival complex as the teeth erupt. The condition of delayed or altered passive eruption exists when the gingival complex remains coronal to the cementoenamel junction (CEJ), with the attachment on the enamel instead of the cementum of the root, giving the appearance of short clinical crowns. Crown lengthening is critical to the success…

Soft Tissue Cone-Beam Computed Tomography: A Novel Method for the Measurement of Gingival Tissue and the Dimensions of the Dentogingival Unit

Soft Tissue Cone-Beam Computed Tomography: A Novel Method for the Measurement of Gingival Tissue and the Dimensions of the Dentogingival Unit
The purpose of the present study was to develop a soft tissue cone-beam computed tomography (ST-CBCT) to improve soft tissue image quality and allow the determination of the dimensions and relationships of the structures of the dentogingival unit. Two separate CBCT scans were obtained from three patients with different periodontal biotypes. The first was a scan following standard methods; however, for the ST-CBCT the patients wore a plastic lip retractor and retracted their tongues toward the floor of their mouths.

“Bernotti V-Y Flap”: A Minimally Invasive Recession Coverage Technique
The Bernotti V-Y Flap, it’s a coronally advanced flap technique with a “V-Y’’ flap design, which consist in a microsurgery technique with or without connective tissue graft, that will improve mucosal biotype and keratinized band in a predictable way for isolated mucosal recession, dehiscence and translucent tissue, at teeth or implants sites.

Combination Therapy for Soft Tissue Grafting Procedures Premium Member Content

Combination Therapy for Soft Tissue Grafting Procedures
Realization of predictable outcomes with shape, shade and unique characteristics of dental restorations has proven to be attainable and maintainable due to the static nature of a carefully prepared foundation and the overlying superstructures. On the other hand, the supporting soft tissue frame, which in turn is controlled by the three-dimensional anatomical characteristics of its surrounding environment, is further complicated by an inherent dynamic nature that is also dependent on a host of biological factors for long-term maintenance of ideal surgical outcomes. Realities and facts vs. hype will be discussed in this presentation based on a review of clinical results achieved and maintained utilizing combined soft tissue grafting approaches with up to 22 years of post-operative follow-up.

Modern Implant Dentistry: Rules of Engagement in the Esthetic Zone - Part 2 of 2
This presentation will focus on the interdisciplinary relationship of the restorative dentist, periodontist and orthodontist to reconstruct the soft tissue foundation for all of these restorative options in anterior tooth replacement. The diagnosis of deficiencies as well as the varied treatment options will be discussed in detail. This includes periodontal crown lengthening, esthetic periodontal plastic soft tissue grafting procedures as well as prescription adjunctive orthodontic tooth movement to manipulate the soft tissue foundation prior to or subsequent with the restorative options of implants, bridges, or pontic replacement.

Is There One or More Reasons to Optimize the PRF & PRP Protocols? Future Trends in Dentistry, Orthopedics and Facial Aesthetics
The “Advanced” PRF (A-PRF) and “Injectable” PRF (I-PRF) protocols were designed with this new concept. Indications are numerous in all medical fields where we need regeneration: bone, cartilage, skin etc... However, the use of growth factors is not a guarantee of long term stability, as they are active only at the beginning of the process. Numerous rules of tissue engineering have to be applied to maintain the regenerated bone through an adequate blood supply: this lecture is an enlightenment on the biological and mechanical conditions for long term stability of the bone: “grafted bone” or “bone around implants”.

Emerging Perspectives in Soft Tissue Augmentation: Evolving Tools, Techniques & Materials Premium Member Content

Emerging Perspectives in Soft Tissue Augmentation: Evolving Tools, Techniques & Materials
Soft tissue root coverage microsurgery and pontic site enhancement are frequently utilized periodontal plastic surgery techniques to create an ideal restorative frame for teeth, pontics and implants. Tunnel, Semilunar, VISTA etc. are among the new age techniques highlighted in this growing area of periodontal microsurgery. New autologous tissue harvest techniques, Allograft ACDM and Bioactive Modifiers have all changed the way we are capable of managing soft tissue deficiencies and have assisted the clinician in improving the healing qualities of these minimally invasive techniques. This lecture will cover site preparation techniques for conventional dentistry as well as prior to and after implant placement.
