The Management of Recession Midfacial to Immediately Placed Implants in the Aesthetic Zone The Management of Recession Midfacial to Immediately Placed Implants in the Aesthetic Zone

Summary:

Immediate placement and loading protocols are the most technique sensitive and at the highest risk of complication, especially in the aesthetic zone. The peri-implant tissues undergo a resorption pattern that may see exposure of parts supporting the restoration, otherwise intended to be submerged, with extreme aesthetic compromise or even complete failure of treatment. The literature is not definitive in terms of any one treatment modality to recover such a complication. Grafting the exposure by a guided bone regeneration technique and an adjunct soft tissue augmentation could well restore an unaesthetic recession exposure. Recovery of midfacial recession by soft tissue augmentation alone may be successful, as is presented hereafter.

Connective Tissue Graft Using Alloderm
Gingival recession is a clinical condition encountered in many dental practices during routine patient care. Fortunately, there are a variety of surgical procedures that the clinician can use to address gingival recession and return the patient to optimal health and aesthetics. As dental professionals gain a higher awareness of the available surgical materials and restorative techniques, the success and predictability of treatment for gingival recession on single and multiple adjacent teeth has…

Developing Optimal Peri-Implant Papillae within the Esthetic Zone: Guided Soft Tissue Augmentation
Osseointegrated dental implants have enjoyed longterm success in the rehabilitation of totally edentulous patients. Every aspect of traditional treatment planning protocols continues to be re-evaluated and updated to better incorporate the benefits of osseointegration into clinical practice. This is particularly evident as dentistry has committed to fully integrating this approach into the more varied and demanding environment of the partially edentulous patient.

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 dental esthetics the regeneration of a compromised papilla , remains the most complex aspect of any reconstructive endeavor. The original 5mm Rule was found to exist only for a papilla bordered by 2 teeth and was expanded into a classification of 6 Types dependent on alternative adjacent support.e. implants or pontics.

Critical Concepts in Implant and Gingival Surgery; Flap Designs, Suture Techniques and Soft Tissue Management
This presentation by the Troeltzsch Brothers features the fundamentals of surgical procedures in the oral cavity. Highlighted are the basic concepts we all must integrate into our daily clinical practice. A discussion of the essential anatomic guidelines as they relate to flap design options and indications are emphasized. Furthermore, material selection, sutures and techniques of wound closures are clearly addressed. Critical solutions to common surgical complications are also described. This lecture is intended for surgical beginners as well as experienced clinicians who want to update their surgical knowledge. These fundamentals are also very popular in the hands-on courses given by the Troeltzsch brothers.

A Review of Clinical Applications for Soft Tissue Allografts & Autografts: Solutions for Teeth, Implants, and Dentures Premium Member Content

A Review of Clinical Applications for Soft Tissue Allografts & Autografts: Solutions for Teeth, Implants, and Dentures
The presentation focuses on the clinical applications for acellular dermal graft (ADG) materials. ADGs have been commonly presented and discussed to provide solutions for treating gingival recession. Compared to autogenous grafts, they have the advantage of minimizing pain, discomfort, and surgery time for patients by avoiding an intraoral donor site such as the palate. In addition to treating gingival recession, ADGs also have uses in bone grafting surgeries such as socket grafting and ridge augmentations (GBR) when they are utilized as a barrier membrane. Finally, ADGs can be combined with bone grafting materials to aid in the augmentation of edentulous ridges to aid denture support. While this last application is less common, it's use is worthy of discussion.
