Soft Tissue Recession Around Implants 2 Soft Tissue Recession Around Implants 2

Author(s):

André P. Saadoun, DDS, MS;Bernard Touati, DDS, MS

Date Added:

Summary:

Implant therapy is a predictable method of replacing lost teeth and involves consideration of numerous surgical and restorative criteria. Part I of this article explained the behavior of the hard and soft tissue around the implant and reviewed various parameters that influence tissue remodeling. Part II emphasizes surgical factors (eg, tridimensional implant placement, platelet-rich fibrin, and the use of connective tissue grafts) and restorative factors as means of limiting soft tissue recession around implants.

Learning Objectives:

This article discusses tridimensional implant placement and the use of connective tissue grafting to complete the aesthetic restoration. Upon reading this article, the reader should:

  • Become familiar with how platelet-rich fibrin enables the simple, effective, and predictable management of the gap between alveolar bone and an implant.
  • Understand the benefits of connecting the final abutment at the surgical stage and leaving it undisturbed.

Immediate loading of a socket shield (partial extraction therapy) post-extraction implant with the final CAD/CAM crown The ONE protocol for one-day natural aesthetics and preventing buccal collapse
Immediate implant placement is a well-recognised and successful treatment option after tooth extraction.1,2 Success rates for both immediate and delayed implant techniques are comparable; however, the literature reports that one can expect buccal collapse of the original buccal volume and midfacial recession of at least 1mm after immediate implant placement, possibly worse in thin gingival biotypes.3

Immediate Dentoalveolar Restoration - A New Technique for Compromised Extraction Sites

Immediate Dentoalveolar Restoration - A New Technique for Compromised Extraction Sites
Immediate loading of implant in damaged fresh extraction socket with gingival architecture involvement, using bone sliver graft from maxillary tuberosity: a clinical case. <br> Immediate loading of implants in undamaged sockets following tooth extraction is very well established in the literature. In cases of tooth loss with socket structure loss, the esthetic risk increases, thus contraindicating immediate loading, such that the bone graft procedure needs to be prior to implant insertion. This paper describes an immediate loading procedure in a damaged fresh socket in the region of an upper central incisor that presented unevenness of gingival contour.

Minimally Invasive Tooth Replacement Strategies in the Esthetic Zone: The Evolution of New Age Concepts
Modern Tooth Replacement Strategies are more concerned about esthetics than ever before especially in light of recent research that clearly defines the risk of resorption, ridge constriction, tissue recession and color changes that often occur following extraction and implant replacement. This presentation will describe the Dual Zone concepts recently published to address these issues as well partial extraction therapies which may play an expanding and more critical role in the future.

Negative Factors for Soft &amp; Hard Tissue Maintenance Premium Member Content

Negative Factors for Soft & Hard Tissue Maintenance
Maintaining the bone is the most difficult challenge in implantology (bone grafted or native bone around implants). If a tissue want to live long, it has to follow 2 conditions: The first condition is to organize a full blood supply.. However, it’s not enough. The solution for the long term stability is to try to organize the stability of the blood supply.. by the respect of several biologic conditions. Almost of these conditions are explained in this lecture. We introduce here the new concept to avoid the reduction of blood supply by the periosteal incision: the soft brushing technique is the first technique which allows a very large increase of the flap without any incision: the flap closure without tension but without any incision.

CadCam Customized 3D-Printed Subperiosteal Implant Premium Member Content

CadCam Customized 3D-Printed Subperiosteal Implant
When considering the future of implants, it appears justified to reconsider the old concepts in light of the availability of contemporary technologies, such as computer-aided design, softwares and programs design, virtual stress– strain testing, and 3D printing of titanium alloy. With the employment of these modern technologies, the concept of a “high-tech” subperiosteal implant has gradually emerged. Biological design of subperiosteal implant is mandatory for the success of the treatment, guidelines on architectural changes, topological optimization, and biofunctionalization will be explained. This new era of a “high-tech” customized 3D printed subperiosteal implant leads us to consider this technique s a valuable treatment option for atrophic jaws, avoiding more invasive procedures and giving the possibility of immediate loading, improving the patient’s quality of life.
