Clinical Realities - Maximizing Aesthetics and Health Using a Closed-Flap ER: YSGG Laser Technique
Dental lasers have evolved considerably as an adjunct and alternative treatment to safely, conservatively, and reliably decrease bacterial levels and improve the hard and soft tissue contours. In selected cases, long-term aesthetic and functional parameters are satisfied with precise restorative planning and technique and by utilizing minimally invasive procedures. Furthermore, patients are provided with optimal results more comfortably and efficiently.

Aesthetic Crown Lengthening

Aesthetic Crown Lengthening
The rationale for crown lengthening procedures has progressively become more aesthetic-driven due to the increasing popularity of smile enhancement therapy. Although the biologic requirements are similar to the functionally oriented exposure of sound tooth structure, aesthetic expectations require an increased emphasis on the appropriate diagnosis of the hard and soft tissue relationships, as well as the definitive restorative parameters to be achieved. The development of a clinically relevant aesthetic blueprint and attendant surgical guide is of paramount importance for the achievement of successful outcomes.

Use of the Natural Tooth for Soft Tissue Development: A Case Series

Use of the Natural Tooth for Soft Tissue Development: A Case Series
The achievement of optimal esthetics around anterior dental implants has been a major challenge for many clinicians. The key to an esthetically pleasing appearance lies in the clinician’s ability to properly manage the soft tissue profile around dental implants. Hence, the purpose of this case report is to describe a new technique that uses the patient’s own natural tooth for the provisional implant restoration to develop soft tissue architecture that is almost identical to the patient’s original immediately…

"The Soft Block": Treating Severe Recessions Around Dental Implants
Implants have been one of the major breakthroughs in dentistry. Tissue collapse around dental implants is our number one enemy as it gives rise to serious problems that go from inflammation, through many times chronic infection, all the way down to severe recession, seriously compromising not only esthetics, but also function and our patients well being. Strategies have been developed to help clinicians to try to avoid collapse. Among the most important are procedures such as: grafting the gap; GBR with several biomaterials and barriers; flapless approaches; immediate implant placement after tooth removal with provisionalization using CAD-CAM & 3D technologies and ultimately PET strategies also combined or not with immediate load

Innovative Sequencing for Interdisciplinary Aesthetic Treatment Premium Member Content

Innovative Sequencing for Interdisciplinary Aesthetic Treatment
Smile enhancement therapy has become an important facet of the everyday aesthetic practice. Aesthetic evaluation utilizing facial aesthetic design to diagnose tooth position demands effective communication between the periodontal-restorative team. This presentation will review innovative sequencing techniques for interdisciplinary cases which require aesthetic crown lengthening for the treatment of excessive gingival display, and for gingival augmentation for root coverage, and the correction of poor gingival quality. Immediate implant placement with immediate non–loaded provisional fabrication will also be reviewed.
