Excessive Gingival Display Managed by Surgical Lip Reposition, Aesthetic Crown Lengthening and Veneers

Description:
Excessive gingival display can be managed by a variety of treatment modalities, depending on the etiology. Mild and moderate gummy smiles can be successfully treated by periodontal plastic surgery, however for excessive gingival display as in cases of VME II or III with 5 to 8 mm or more of gingival exposure this procedure is not enough. Many patients decline the more invasive Le Fort osteotomy and opt for a less invasive surgical lip repositioning procedure. Currently Botox is used as alternative, but this is only a temporary treatment with very short effectiveness. That is why we suggest surgical lip repositioning as an effective procedure to reduce gingival display by positioning the upper lip in a more coronal location. The long-term stability of the results remains to be seen, but it holds promise as an alternative treatment to more invasive procedures

DR. Kenneth, what is the purpose of muscle suturing. (some people didn't do the muscle suturing. and one more question, any specific amount of epithelium tissue need to be remove? i mean how many millimeter (is it according to the gum exposure? Sincerely.

well organized,and productive, thanks

Thank you Rafael Molina, please check the video again, the procedure is fully described. I´ve had the same problem with many patients performing the conventional technique, and that´s why my team and I have developed this new technique. which offers long term stability and which is currently under study. Regards.

Sorry Maurice, I wanted to say: as I mentioned in other presentation...

Rafael Molina - (9/16/2015 5:59 PM)

Dr. Kenneth i want to say amazing work!! can you please can talk about this sutures in the muscle?? i have these problems of regresion in 3 patients with the lip reposition, but i do a new cirurgia and put a little of botox, but i see your technique very much better, can you talk a little about that??

Kenneth Valladares - (9/13/2015 1:27 PM)

Thanks Maurice, as you mentioned in other presentation. I have been following up on almost all my cases of surgical lip repositioning. I started to perform this modified technique (involving muscles) about three years ago, so the oldest cases are only three years old. However I have seen stability over this amount of time. I have also seen a huge difference in terms of stability compared to the conventional technique. In our experience looking at the stability of the conventional technique over the same time (three years), it shows no stability. Our modified technique is currently under study, so far the technique has proven to yield stable results. Regards Kenneth

Contemporary Bio-Materials and Combined Techniques for Esthetic Reconstruction
State-of-the-art technology offers conservative and esthetic alternatives to re-establish the shape and color of anterior teeth as well as the white and pink harmony. Tooth reduction for any restorative technique obliges us to be as conservative as possible. In this presentation we will share a short description of different material options developed in esthetic dentistry. We will present a case managed with a combination of techniques including: monolithic lithium-silicate ceramic veneers and cut-back/layering.

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.

Surgical Concepts to Treat Esthetic Implant Disaster Cases - Part 2 of 2 Premium Member Content

Surgical Concepts to Treat Esthetic Implant Disaster Cases - Part 2 of 2
The utilization of dental implants in the esthetic zone is a challenge for involved clinicians. With the increasing application of dental implants by non-experienced colleagues, the occurrence of esthetic failures with implant supported restorations is raising. This lecture will address the causes for such esthetic failures and the surgical approach for therapy. In most cases, implant removal is necessary, which must be done with a low-trauma technique to avoid additional bone loss. Today, this is done with special implant removal instruments using the Reverse Torque Technique. In addition, these failures are often characterized by a lack of keratinized mucosa. The current strategies for the reestablishment of keratinized mucosa and for the augmentation of missing bone, mainly on the facial aspects are presented and documented with case reports. This includes aspects of timing, surgical techniques, and the selection of appropriate biomaterials.

Non-Surgical Periodontal Therapy: Decision Making in the 21st Century Premium Member Content

Non-Surgical Periodontal Therapy: Decision Making in the 21st Century
Non-surgical periodontal therapy is a vital part of everyday dental practice. Since the majority of periodontal therapy is performed by general dentists and dental hygienists, it is critical that clinicians have all of the requisite skills and information needed to perform these services at the highest level possible. The purpose of this presentation is to provide the latest evidence- and practice- based information on periodontal debridement and adjunctive therapies that can improve patient outcomes. Though surgical procedures may still need to be performed in some sites, the majority of inflammatory periodontal disease can be eliminated or reduced significantly using the techniques and protocols discussed in this educational segment on non-surgical periodontal therapy.

Guidelines for the Diagnosis and Treatment of Peri-Implant Disease

Guidelines for the Diagnosis and Treatment of Peri-Implant Disease
Although some risk factors of peri-implant disease are well defined, the lack of efficient and predictable approaches to treat peri-implantitis has created difficulty in the management of those complications. The aim of this review was the evaluate the reliability of the diagnosis methods and to provide a set of guidelines to treat peri-implant disease. A search of PubMed and a hand search of articles related to peri-implant diseases were conducted up to August 2013. A summary of the current methods for the diagnosis of peri-implantitis, its potential risk factors, and a flow chart to guide the clinical management of these conditions are presented.

Clinical Realities - Papilla and Free Gingival Margin Preservation in Multiple-Tooth Extraction

Clinical Realities - Papilla and Free Gingival Margin Preservation in Multiple-Tooth Extraction
Bone atrophy is a natural response to tooth extraction, and anatomic and functional aberrations can be magnified when alveolar atrophy is accompanied by periodontitis, root fracture, radicular caries, apical processes, or endoperiodontal complications.

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.
