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

Sequencing of Periodontal Procedures and Orthodontic Treatment
Severe cases of periodontal disease often require periodontal surgery and realignment of teeth. Surgical techniques have been developed that attempt to minimize postsurgical gingival recession and compromise the interdental papillae. A case report is presented in which reversal and correction of a deteriorating maxillary frontal dentition were effectively achieved through combined use of periodontal and orthodontic principles. The treatment plan included the control of periodontal inflammation, restoration of lost attachment apparatus, realignment of anterior dentition, stabilization of occlusion, and minor periodontal plastic surgery. The anticipated loss of a maxillary lateral incisor was avoided. Restoration of a pleasant smile with nicely aligned teeth and esthetic gingival contours was achieved. The correct sequencing of the procedures involved was considered a key factor for the long-term esthetic outcome.

Advanced Immediate Implant Placement Strategies Including the Socket Shield (SS) Technique and its Complications
Immediate implant placement in the aesthetic zone has become a controversial topic with regards to the long term aesthetic demands that both the profession and our patients have placed on this treatment modality. Since the controversy broke a few years ago there have been a number of outstanding developments that have revolutionized the way we do immediate implant placement. Soft tissue augmentations using the tunnel technique as well as the socket whiled technique are 2 of these techniques which form the baseline of treatment in our clinic. This lecture will go through all the updated protocols of immediate implant placement supported by the literature as well as deal specifically with the finer details of the socket whiled technique including step by step photos and video of the technique. More importantly it will cover numerous complications that we have had to deal with over the last few years that we have been doing this technique.

Peri-Implantitis: Diagnosis, Etiology and Treatment
The dental implant therapy has evolved both in implant surface and design. The reason for the initial crestal bone loss has been proven and the risks of having a peri-implantitis have increased due to the early exposure of roughened surface. The prevalence of peri-implantitis is at a range of 28 to 56%. The role of dental professionals nowadays is to know how to interpret the signs of inflammation and establish the diagnosis of peri-implantitis, which is the most challenging, and be able to treat it properly since this is becoming a more needed therapy.

Partial Extraction Therapies: From Failure to Everyday Practice - Part 1 of 4 Premium Member Content

Partial Extraction Therapies: From Failure to Everyday Practice - Part 1 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.

A Decade of the Socket-Shield Technique: A Step-by-Step Partial Extraction Therapy Protocol

A Decade of the Socket-Shield Technique: A Step-by-Step Partial Extraction Therapy Protocol
Ten years have passed since Hürzeler and coworkers first introduced the socket-shield technique. Much has developed and evolved with regard to partial extraction therapy, a collective concept of utilizing the patient’s own tooth root to preserve the periodontium and peri-implant tissue. The specifications, steps, instrumentation, and procedures discussed in this article are the result of extensive experience in refining the socket-shield technique as we know it today. A repeatable, predictable protocol is requisite to providing tooth replacement in esthetic dentistry. Moreover, a standardized protocol provides a better framework for clinicians to report data relating to the technique with procedural consistency. This article aims to illustrate a reproducible, step-by-step protocol for the socket- shield technique at immediate implant placement and provisionalization for single-rooted teeth.

The Pontic-Shield: Partial Extraction Therapy for Implant Dentistry

The Pontic-Shield: Partial Extraction Therapy for Implant Dentistry
Augmentive ridge preservation techniques aim to manage the postextraction ridge. The partial extraction of teeth may better preserve the ridge form by maintaining the bundle bone-periodontal tissues and preserve the ridge beneath dentures or fixed prostheses. The socket-shield technique entails preparing a tooth root section simultaneous to immediate implant placement and has demonstrated histologic and clinical results contributory to esthetic implant treatment. A retrospective 10-patient case series treating 14 partial extraction sites demonstrates how a modification of the socket-shield technique can successfully develop pontic sites and preserve the ridge.
