Keys to Esthetic Gingivectomy

Description:
Dr. Lee Silverstein discusses in great detail how to prepare, plan and implement esthetic gingivectomy procedures as an integral part of smile enhancement. With the end result always in mind, Dr. Silverstein also reviews the components of smile design that must be considered and adhered to by the surgeon in order to be successful in designing the gingivectomy surgical inervention. In addition, he describes technique and instrumentation in detail.

gingival margin should be at the same level as the cej? not where I was trained.

Thx a lot great video !!

Mara; You just did post your question correctly about this video. Now try asking a question. Good luck and welcome.

great job, i really like it. I just want to know where I can put some question about this video.

Hamad Kayani - (2/27/2012 2:27 PM)

excellent insight on gingivectomy...I was wondering what's your take on soft tissue trimming burs such as ceraburs from komet?... Also if the gingival tissue is trimmed down to the cemento ennamel junction, wouldn't we be eliminating the sulcus? thanx

THX for sharing! Verya instructive!!!

thanks sir, very educative.

When doing crown lengthening, at what point would one be concerned at removing too much bone?

Karyn Halpern - (9/28/2010 10:46 AM)

Thanks for sharing this video. I think the 13 y/o female with the small diastema between the centrals would benefit from a frenectomy. Once the ortho is complete the space will return due to the frenum pull.

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.

Papilla Regeneration in Patients with Gummy Smile Premium Member Content

Papilla Regeneration in Patients with Gummy Smile
A lost interdental papilla is difficult to regenerate. Only a few successful case reports have been published and there are no studies reporting a predictable technique to reconstruct the papilla. In this presentation we talk about the biological determinants of gingival papilla. We show different clinical cases ranging from simple cases, where papilla preservation techniques are applied, to complex cases of patients with gingival smile where we apply papilla regeneration techniques.

Esthetic Management for Compromised Extraction Sites - Part 1 of 2 Premium Member Content

Esthetic Management for Compromised Extraction Sites - Part 1 of 2
Missing soft tissue is the main reason for compromised results in the aesthetic zone. But since the soft tissue has to be supported by a sufficient amount of bone, our focus has also to be on bone. Due to the fact that no bone-preservation technique (at the time of tooth extraction) available today, gives us the perfect result we need, augmentation procedures are still needed. Appropriate bone and soft tissue engineering in all three dimensions enhances the aesthetic performance of long-lasting restorations that blend in well and emerge from the periimplant sulcus in harmony with the neighboring teeth.

Revisiting the Papilla in 2016 - Part 2 of 2
In dental esthetics the regeneration of a compromised papilla , remains the most complex aspect of any reconstructive endeavor. The original 5mm Rule was found to exist only for a papilla bordered by 2 teeth and was expanded into a classification of 6 Types dependent on alternative adjacent support.e. implants or pontics.

Understanding Peri-implantitis: Prevention and Treatment
The etiologies and the treatment of peri-implantitis have been discussed over the last two decades. The subject is becoming more critical lately as dental implant therapy is becoming more involved and more practitioners are placing dental. The need of diagnosing and understanding the factors that lead to Peri-implantitis should be understood by the practitioners in order to preserve in the long run a healthy and stable results

Critical Concepts in Implant and Gingival Surgery; Flap Designs, Suture Techniques and Soft Tissue Management Premium Member Content

Critical Concepts in Implant and Gingival Surgery; Flap Designs, Suture Techniques and Soft Tissue Management
This presentation by the Troeltzsch Brothers features the fundamentals of surgical procedures in the oral cavity. Highlighted are the basic concepts we all must integrate into our daily clinical practice. A discussion of the essential anatomic guidelines as they relate to flap design options and indications are emphasized. Furthermore, material selection, sutures and techniques of wound closures are clearly addressed. Critical solutions to common surgical complications are also described. This lecture is intended for surgical beginners as well as experienced clinicians who want to update their surgical knowledge. These fundamentals are also very popular in the hands-on courses given by the Troeltzsch brothers.

Esthetic Tissue Reconstruction Around Implants - Part 2 of 2 Premium Member Content

Esthetic Tissue Reconstruction Around Implants - Part 2 of 2
Esthetics in implant-supported restorations is an important clinical objective in contemporary dentistry. Understanding the biological behavior of hard and soft tissues following tooth extraction is the first step to anticipate the physiological tissue remodeling and its consequences. Our objective in these 2 sequential lectures was to provide straightforward decision trees related to several clinical scenarios observed in routine clinical practice. The 3 fundamental pillars for peri-implant excellence are: restorative-driven implant position, hard and soft tissue reconstruction using different biomaterials and grafts, and prosthetic management. Using this philosophical approach seems to provide esthetic and stable results over time irrespective of the initial clinical condition.

Surgical Veneer Grafting - Compensation for Natural Labial Plate Remodeling After Immediate Implant Placement

Surgical Veneer Grafting - Compensation for Natural Labial Plate Remodeling After Immediate Implant Placement
Contemporary implant therapy aims to provide highly esthetic and predictable treatment outcomes while decreasing treatment duration and complexity. The clinician must therefore be cognizant of circumstances with a predisposition toward esthetic outcomes and treatment plan accordingly. Preservation of the surrounding hard and soft tissues associated with an immediate postextraction socket implant to replace a nonrestorable tooth in the esthetic zone is one of the greatest challenges facing the dental team. A case report of a hopeless maxillary left central incisor in a patient with a thin periodontal phenotype illustrates this new surgical and prosthetic approach. Clinical, radiological, and esthetic parameters were recorded to evaluate primary treatment outcomes.

Modified IVAN Technique: Long-Term Follow-Up of 20 Cases Over 2 to 11 Years

Modified IVAN Technique: Long-Term Follow-Up of 20 Cases Over 2 to 11 Years
When natural teeth fail, frequently there is a loss of hard and soft tissue. This may complicate subsequent dental implant placement by creating insufficient bone to house the implant. This also occurs when the tooth has been missing for an extended period, especially in the premaxilla, where the bone is less dense and often lacks sufficient volume of facial bone. Site reconstruction to accommodate implant placement often requires both hard and soft tissue augmentation. The modified interpositional vascularized augmentation neogenesis (mIVAN) technique achieves the desired treatment goals in both delayed and immediate placement scenarios. The technique will be discussed as well as the long-term follow-up on 20 cases.
