“Bernotti V-Y Flap”: A Minimally Invasive Recession Coverage Technique

Description:
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. It is a conservative flap design, inspired in Semilunar and Modified Semilunar Tarnow’s technique, to minimize interproximal crestal bone loss and possible loss of papillae around teeth or implants, marginal mucosal position is stabilized avoiding adverse aesthetic outcomes. At least (two) 2mm of keratinized mucosa must be left on each side of the flap to preserve blood supply and avoid loss of crestal marginal bone. Miller Class I and II recession defects with a minimum length of (two) 2 mm are suitable to be selected to perform the Bernotti V-Y Flap; The Bernotti V-Y Flap consist of a pedicle flap, making a ¨V ¨incision apically to the recession defect. The incision ends on each inter-proximal area of the tooth or the implant, but not all the way to the tip of the papilla. Afterwards a mid-facial intra-sulcular incision is made, to allow a coronal movement of the marginal tissue with no tension. The flap is coronally maintained, when it is sutured the vertical slope of the ¨Y¨ incision. Pushing or advancing coronally the flap to cover the mucosal recession without making any tension to the pedicle flap, avoiding any incision or suture at the papillae that could compromised blood supply. The Bernotti V-Y Flap is recommended in the presence of a Keratinized mucosa band or in combination with tissue graft, either on teeth or implants sites. In order to cover isolated mucosa recession, treat dehiscence, translucent tissue and improve mucosa biotype. Stability and aesthetic outcomes are achieved with the Bernotti V-Y Flap.

Wonderful presentation Ana Luisa. I was privileged to have seen it live.

Very nice lecture and great technique. It happens when we love our profession and think a lot about it. What do you think about utilizing tuberosity bone instead of mandibular bone? BTW, it`s nice that you saved this surprise for XP Symposium:)) Congratulations!

Maurice Salama - (3/2/2018 9:26 AM)

Well done and very innovative. We need more follow up and clinical research comparing long term success and versus other conventional approaches. Thanks Dr. Salama

Delia Tuttle - (3/1/2018 9:42 PM)

Excellent technique ! Great presentation ! I had the privilege to see both of these procedures during Dr. Ana Luisa Bernotti ‘s live surgeries and I was impressed by the results and simplicity of the technique. We need more unique people like you Dr. Bernotti ! Your skills, passion and dedication are above extraordinary! Congratulations !!!!!

Papilla Management in a Severe Periodontal and Cosmetic Deformity: Combining Veneer into Full Graft (ViFG) and Veneer into Split Graft (ViSG)
Bone defects and periodontal disease can create challenging defects in the anterior area. When we have such severe defects as the one presented here, it´s essential to plan in advance and to be sure of what is possible to correct with bone grafting and with soft tissue management. The key question in this clinical case is to be able to place the soft tissue graft exactly where you want it to heal. In our clinical practice we use routinely PRGF ENDORET grafts, not only as vehicle for particulate graft transportation, but also as a biological enhancer of both osteointegration and soft tiss

The "Modified Tunnel" Technique and the development of the Lateral Tunnel Approach Premium Member Content

The "Modified Tunnel" Technique and the development of the Lateral Tunnel Approach
The "Modified Tunnel" technique is a method of esthetic connective tissue grafting that protects the interdental papillae. First published in 1999, this lateral tunnel approach uses vertical incisions on both sides of the treatment area. These vertical incisions facilitate placement and positioning of the graft over the root surfaces without the need to disturb the interdental papillae. This technique is very useful in esthetic areas and those that involve several teeth. An acellular dermal connective tissue allograft is an excellent choice of graft material to use with this technique.

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.

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…

Using an Acellular Dermal Matrix for Increasing Keratinized Tissue Around Dental Implants
In previously published articles, investigators concluded that gingival recession may affect up to 90% of the population. Gingival recession ranges from one to three millimeters and is predominantly noted on the buccal surfaces of molar, premolar, and lower incisor teeth. Although surgical grafting techniques have traditionally been used to restore these recession sites, an acellular allograft material has recently been developed for increasing the zone of keratinized tissue surrounding teeth and…
