Keys to Successful Implants within the Esthetic Zone - Part 1 of 2

Description:
In this first of a two part presentation, Dr. Michael Sonick outlines the keys to successfully placing implants in the anterior region. This section emphasizes the need for precise treatment planning so that proper 3-dimensional implant positioning can be achieved. A detailed understanding of the mesial-distal, buccal-palatal and incisal-apical surgical positioning of dental implants will be explored.

Questions & Comments

Simon
I agree with Dr Salama. The papilla sparing incision is one that I do not use very frequently for it leads to papilla compromise via a loss of blood supply as well as scaring as Maurice pointed out. The key for papilla is the bone. If you have the bone and the contact point is in the correct place you will have the papilla. Mike Sonick

Maurice Salama - (5/7/2011 1:47 PM)

Simon; Unsure about Dr. Sonick's response but I personally do not like the "papilla saving" incision. I feel it is over utilized and often restricts blood supply to the flap and forces the surgeon to graft and place the membrane over the incision line. It often causes scar formation which could be a negative in the esthetic zone. Dr. Salama

Simon Milbauer - (5/5/2011 10:19 AM)

Dr Sonick,why you do not recommend papilla saving incision?I have attended a course focusing on soft tissue management recently and the lecturer who was a periodontist was actually recommending this type of flap design.

Jeffrey,

This presentation focussed on the needed biologic concepts in order to idealize the placement of implants. I specifically utilized long term follow up in order to demonstrate long term follow up and to demonstrate the longevity of the results when biologic principles are followed.

Today - many of us are focused on the "new and improved". Fact is biology has not changed in the last 30 years. I learned from many of my teachers, Tarnow, Garber,Abrams, Kramer, and many others that as long as biologic prinicples are followed, success will usually occur.

I graft with Connective Tissue when i want to augment the soft tissue. In this presentation, my attempt was to try and use Guided Gingival Growth to enhance soft tissue without having to do a connective tissue graft.

Today, I frequently graft with bone e.g. BioOss and a membrane at the time of initial implant surgery in order to increase the volume buccally. This is called a contour graft and has been described by Danny Buser.

I hope that helps. Connective Tissue Grafting can be done at any of the following times:

1. prior to implant placement
2. At the time of implant placement
3. At the time of second stage surgery
4. Post second stage surgery

Personally, I prefer 3. at the time of second stage surgery if CTG is to be done.

Hope that helps.

Dr. Salama;
I disagree, the images and cases did not appear to support some of the concepts offered. I have seen Dr. Sonick lecture and enjoy his videos on XP but the comments made were fair in this case.
Sam

Maurice Salama - (11/19/2010 9:22 PM)

Jeffrey; It appears to be a lecture aimed at concepts and perhaps not as much a review of current surgical techniques.

Restoring the Pink and White Esthetics. Clinical Case Presentation
Every esthetic case is a challenge. As clinicians we need to understand and combine different treatment modalities and materials to achieve outstanding esthetic and functional results. This clinical case will demonstrate the importance of the little details, and how they influence the final result. We’ll go step by step thought the analyze, planning surgical and prosthetic procedures with focus on the key points that I find to be crucial.

Ridge Splitting and/or GBR - Maxilla vs. Mandible - Part 1 of 2
Mandibular ridge splitting has been a clinical challenge due to high density of cortical bone. Therefore, some clinicians recommends two stage approach to overcome this issue. We will also present an unique ridge splitting technique that is easy to do and predictable using one stage approach.

The Interdisciplinary Software Platform. The Key For Modern Digital Dentistry
The starting point of a facially driven interdisciplinary dental treatment plan is "The Smile Frame". A few crucial photos and steps will come together to create the ultimate template you need to communicate to your dental team, colleagues, and the patient to ultimately increase case acceptance and create the most aesthetic and functional method of rehabilitation to your patient. We will discuss how this paradigm shift of regular analog dentistry has shifted to this modern digital world and the benefits it provides. The protocol proposed will improve the diagnosis, communication and predictability of esthetic rehabilitation, from simple implant or restorative cases to complex cases, combining perio, ortho, and othognathic surgery. Emphasis will be given to the utilization of digital tools to enhance and facilitate the Dentist/Technician interaction and communication with the patient.

Treating the Terminal Dentition: A Patient-Center Approach
In patients with terminal dentition esthetic and functional replacement is a necessary objective, but no longer a sufficient-objective: nowadays, due to the clinical and extra clinical characteristics of these patients, management of the therapy is as important as its conclusion. Respect of the principle of autonomy, reduction of treatment length, simplification of surgical procedures and prosthetic management of implant immediate loading are the cornerstones of this philosophy and are the object of this lecture.

Tissue Engineering and Platelet Derived Growth Factors: Evidence Based Therapy Premium Member Content

Tissue Engineering and Platelet Derived Growth Factors: Evidence Based Therapy
Platelet derived growth factors are now routinely utilized in reconstructive therapy. This presentation describes very detailed and evidence based guidelines for clinicians interested in enhancing their abilities in tissue engineering, especially as it relates to bone augmentation. Specifically, while successful bone augmentation requires the standard surgical parameters of space maintenance, low pressure on the grafts and tension-free flap closure, optimization of this goal requires management and enhancement of the local biological conditions with growth factors. Towards that end, platelet concentrates through the constant release of growth factors are able to promote and enhance new vascularization, provide plasma protein, normal lipidemia, as well as increased collagen and fibrin activity.

Introducing Choukroun’s Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) to the Reconstructive Surgery Milieu

Introducing Choukroun’s Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) to the Reconstructive Surgery Milieu
Platelet-rich fibrin (PRF), developed in France by Choukroun et al (2001), is a second generation platelet concentrate widely used to accelerate soft and hard tissue healing. Its advantages over the better known platelet-rich plasma (PRP) include ease of preparation/application, minimal expense, and lack of biochemical modification (no bovine thrombin or anticoagulant is required). PRF is a strictly autologous fibrin matrix containing a large quantity of platelet and leukocyte cytokines. This article serves as an introduction to the PRF “concept” and its potential clinical applications.
