Buccal Sliding Palatal Pedicle Flap Technique for Wound Closure After Ridge Augmentation

Description:
One standard approach for wound closure after ridge augmentation is coronal flap advancement. Coronal flap advancement results in displacement of the mucogingival junction and reduction of the vestibulum. In the maxilla, a buccal sliding palatal flap can be applied for primary wound closure after ridge augmentation. The dissected part of the palatal connective tissue is left exposed thus eliminating or reducing the amount of the coronal flap advancement respectively and increasing amount of keratinized gingiva. In combination with guided soft tissue augmentation, this flap design enables a three-dimensional peri-implant soft tissue augmentation.

Dear Lalith Vivekananda, thank you, I appreciate your feedback very much! Once we see advantages of ROBINHOOD concepts, we open our eyes and discover countless opportunities to utilize the patient own tissue without doing any harm with an additional donor site. Thank you again!

Thank you for your nice comment, dear Farhan Durrani. The other technique is the coronally flap advancement of the buccal flap in the low jaw. Periosteum incision is 1 mm and "brushing" using the blade is utilized to further release the buccal flap. BSPPF technique has the goal to avoid or reduce the coronally buccal flap advancement. In cases where 4-5 mm of exposed buccal sliding flap are not sufficient for the wound closure, BSPPF is combined with the coronally buccal flap advancement. Thanks to the Ronda & Stacch paper and later Choukroun and Simonpieri popularization, I prefer a shallow initial periosteum incision, followed by brushing. In cases where only a minor buccal flap advancement is required, periosteum detachment from the bone is sufficient to advance the flap coronally.

Awesome lecture Sjnezana 🤝....appreciate the intricacy in your work...following your ROBINHOOD concepts ----its working out great 😊

Thank you, Howie, I am honored that you took your time to watch this video. It is always good to hear from you and get your smart questions. Apically repositioned flap is easier to perform then BSPPF, although BSPPF does not require great surgical skills.When BSPPF technique is utilized, the MGJ is not displaced or it is displaced minimally. It means that at second stage surgery we don`t have to deal with flattened vestibulum and can uncover implants 1. minimally invasive, especially if guided soft tissue augmentation was performed, or 2. thicken the soft tissue with roll flap or FCTG. A few months after the first CT detachment and displacement, the CT quality and quantity is even better. Apically repositioned flap allows for the horizontal tissue thickening, but not for the vertical. What I dislike about the apically repositioned flap is the exposed bone between the implants and flap management on adjacent teeth.  I find apically repositioned flap more useful in full arch cases, but in the most esthetic cases, there is no application for this flap. Nowadays I use apically repositioned flap only if the soft tissue thickness does not allow for BSPPF.

Great Presentation with innovative skill Snježana Pohl Please can you explain the advantage over another technique mentioned in same journal Marco Ronda, Claudio Stacchi;A Novel Approach for the Coronal Advancement of the Buccal Flap;Int J Periodontics Restorative Dent . Nov-Dec 2015;35(6):795-801

Howard Gluckman - (9/22/2020 3:18 AM)

grit lecture and work Sjnezana I love your work. Thanks for sharing will be trying the technique ASAP. How do you think this compares to the use of the apically repositioned flap. with regards to ease of use, tissue thickening and replacement of the MGJ. thanks

Thank you, dear Feras Awad!

Great Presentation as Usual :)

Thank you so much for your kind comment, dear Rita! I am looking forward to your BSPPF cases! Warmly, Snjezana

Restoration of Optimal Esthetics in Complex Clinical Situations
Patients often neglect or delay dental care for an extended time because of their negative experiences with and fear of dental treatments. This neglect may result in the advance of periodontitis with severe bone loss, a substantial number of missing teeth, and problems with the remaining teeth. Preexisting malocclusion can aggravate this condition. This case report demonstrates an interdisciplinary strategic approach, in combination with the use of biologically grounded, clinically proven, and viable techniques and technologies to restore optimal esthetics and function in such complex cases. The authors emphasize the importance of carefully planning the timing and sequence of performing periodontal, orthodontic, and implant therapies. The advanced techniques and technologies successfully implemented in this case report include the growth factor and titanium mesh (Ti mesh)-assisted bone augmentation; ovate pontic-mediated, noninvasive soft tissue contouring; and photofunctionalization

Prevention & Therapy of Biological Complications in Implant Dentistry - Part 1 of 2
After decades of implant therapies carried out by mostly general dentists, a new pathology that did not exist only 25 years ago is spreading like wildfire: peri-implantitis. In this course we will discuss the possibilities of prevention of this disease and the most modern therapies to treat biological complications in implant therapy in the light of clinical research published and in the next publication.

Soft Tissue Augmentation: What Are The Limits?
Soft tissue grafting techniques provide the dentist with an armamentarium that makes possible to prevent and solve many problems and complications around teeth and implants, making more predictable the treatments results. But, what are the limits ? Sometimes it is not so easy to take the right decision between bone or soft tissue grafting techniques We present many different techniques illustrated with clinical cases in order to explain our point of view.

Partial Extraction Therapies: From Failure to Everyday Practice - Part 2 of 4 Premium Member Content

Partial Extraction Therapies: From Failure to Everyday Practice - Part 2 of 4
Tooth extraction is usually followed by the resorption of support tissues that may compromise the aesthetic and functional prognosis of the final rehabilitation. There have been numerous publications suggesting Partial Extraction Therapies contribute to the maintenance of the alveolar ridge dimensions. These techniques consist in intentionally preserving a buccal root fragment in order to avoid tearing the periodontal ligament and loosing the bundle bone, which leads to bone resorption. It has been reported that these are very sensitive techniques and may lead to some complications. In order to avoid these complications, the dental surgeon must know which cases can be treated with Partial Extraction Therapies and how to correctly perform them. In these presentations we will show what are the indications and contraindications, how to perform these techniques, the literature that sustains it, how can we benefit from digital technology to today's world, etc.

Biologic Width Adjacent to Loaded Implant with Machined and Rough Collars in the Dog

Biologic Width Adjacent to Loaded Implant with Machined and Rough Collars in the Dog
Dental implant surface technology has evolved from a relatively smooth machined implant surface for osseointegration to more roughened osteoconductive surfaces. Recent studies suggest that peri-implant soft tissue inflammation with progressive bone loss (ie peri-implantitis) is becoming a prevalent condition. One possibility that could explain sucha a finding is that more bacterial plaque forms on the roughened implant and abutment surfaces, which may result in the peri-implant inflammation if the soft tissues. This study compared 36 tissue-level implants with a machined transmucosal collar to 36 implants with a relatively roughened transmucosal surface in the dog. The results demonstrated that the connective tissue contact was similar between the two implant types but that the junctional epithelium and biologic width dimensions were greater around the implants with the machined collars...

Ridge Preservation with Modified “Socket-Shield” Technique: A Methodological Case Series

Ridge Preservation with Modified “Socket-Shield” Technique: A Methodological Case Series
After tooth extraction, the alveolar bone undergoes a remodeling process, which leads to horizontal and vertical bone loss. These resorption processes complicate dental rehabilitation, particularly in connection with implants. Various methods of guided bone regeneration (GBR) have been described to retain the original dimension of the bone after extraction. Most procedures use filler materials and membranes to support the buccal plate and soft tissue, to stabilize the coagulum and to prevent epithelial ingrowth.
