The AGE Approach: A Combination Protocol for Hard and Soft Tissue Augmentation in Complex Cases

Description:
Although new restorative materials have improved predictability and outcomes, hard and soft tissue management plays a fundamental role when working in aesthetic areas. To achieve ideal results, preservation of the natural hard and soft tissue architecture is the primary clinical objective. This new proposed AGE protocol illustrates the importance of hard and soft tissue management when working in esthetic and highly compromised areas. This protocol and schematic approach was developed to help the surgical practitioner visualize and divide the problem into a predictable step-by-step workflow. Every step is dictated by biology. All incision designs, flap management techniques, and biomaterials used have been selected to maximize the blood supply in the area and minimize trauma to the vascular network that nourishes our surgical site. This protocol was developed for the treatment of any case presenting a combination of vertical and horizontal, hard and soft tissue deficiency. The protocol will be explained in detail with a clinical case complete with pictures and commentary. The protocol will be divided into a four part series describing all possible scenarios.

Marco Benigni - (6/23/2016 12:08 PM)

It looks like there was a considerable bone resorption after the bone grafting procedure (2nd CBCT image). What is the possible reason for that? Graft material or mesh design? Thank you

FİGEN ÖZÇELEBİ - (5/10/2016 9:32 AM)

Thank you Dr Cicero

amr al-khairi - (5/5/2016 7:33 PM)

fantastic, what sutures are you using in your surgery? thank you very much, that was a quality presentation.

Very nice Thank you!

Well done, the final result is challenging to attain even after multiple surgical entries. Thanks Dr. Salama

Partial Extraction Therapy (PET) The Final Frontier
Buccopalatal collapse of the postextraction ridge is a significant challenge in restorative and implant dentistry. A variety of different approaches as well as ridge preservation techniques using tissue and augmentative materials have been proposed in the literature. A slightly different approach, "PET" is to use the tooth itself by purposely maintaining all or a portion of the root in the remaining socket. Root submergence has been reported in the literature for more than 4 decades, and it has been demonstrated that the submerged tooth root retains the periodontal tissues and preserves the bone in pontic sites or below dentures to retain the ridge. The socket-shield technique entails preparing a tooth root section to remain behind on the labial aspect simultaneous to immediate implant placement and has demonstrated histologic and clinical results that are highly promising to esthetic implant treatment.

Biologic Strategies to Enhance Clinical and Aesthetic Success in Oral Implantology Premium Member Content

Biologic Strategies to Enhance Clinical and Aesthetic Success in Oral Implantology
This webinar will discuss clinical strategies for treatment of the complex implant site involving bone grafting and implant placement. Our understanding of cellular pathways, and our ability to control the wound response, expands our capacity to effect better aesthetic outcomes and compress treatment time. The reduction of the inflammatory phase of tissue regeneration speeds up osseointegration, prevents crestal bone loss, maintains papillary form, increases the density of peri-implant bone and increases tissue biotype. This enhanced tissue response allows us to predictably treat even the most complex surgical cases, compress time to final reconstruction, and to maintain these favorable tissue outcomes over an extended period of time. The use of dental implants with advanced biologic features and the incorporation autologous growth factors will be demonstrated.

Modern Crown Lengthening: Classification and Clinical Application Premium Member Content

Modern Crown Lengthening: Classification and Clinical Application
Crown lengthening procedures are indicated to provide adequate tooth structure in case of subgingival tooth fracture or caries, uneven gingival level, un-esthetic short crowns due to the tooth wear, inadequate axial height, altered passive eruption ,forced eruption of a single or multiple teeth and finally in case of gingival smile. The treatment modality for esthetic crown lengthening procedure should be based on detail diagnosis in each case because of the multifactorial etiology and because of the type of therapy selected by the clinician, will have a direct implication for the esthetic result.

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”.

Combined Augmentation Therapies in the Esthetic Zone
The esthetic zone presents a far bigger challenge than any other area of the mouth. It is the one area that a patient has the ability to really scrutinize the work that has been done and anything that does not pass muster will quickly create problems in our practices. Uncompromising treatment planning is therefore essential to ensure the long term aesthetic stability of our esthetic cases. Treatment planning involves both bone and soft tissue therapy as both are critical for the stability. This lecture will highlife the importance of different treatment options as well as show numerous new techniques that are possible to achieve the results that both our patients and practitioners are proud of.

Similarities Between an Acellular Dermal Allograft and a Palatal Graft for Tissue Augmentation
Predictable tissue regeneration presents a considerable challenge in the surgical treatment of gingival tissue defects. Soft-tissue augmentation procedures to increase the existing or create a new zone of attached keratinized gingival tissue have classically been performed using the patient's own masticatory mucosa and, more recently, using an acellular dermal allograft as the donor material. This article presents a clinical case whereby an acellular dermal allograft was placed on the buccal surface…

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…

Achieving Predictable Connective Tissue Root Coverage

Achieving Predictable Connective Tissue Root Coverage
Gingival recession creates esthetic issues. These issues may be corrected from a restorative perspective by the placement of composite resin or ceramic over the exposed root. But this approach often results in a gingival-incisal length that does not blend esthetically with the adjacent teeth. Often accompanying the gingival recession is a decrease in the band of attached gingiva. The wider the band of attached gingiva, the more stable the long-term result. Therefore, surgical correction of the recession…
