Maximizing Esthetics with Minimally Invasive Surgery Around Implants

Description:
Soft tissue deficiencies around implants impact esthetics and often lead to escalating problems. Early recognition and intervention with minimally invasive soft tissue surgery reduces the risk of undesirable sequellae associated with conventional surgical approaches around implants. The application of a minimally invasive soft tissue grafting method will be shown for treatment of soft tissue problems around implants and the indications for use of this technique will be outlined.

I enjoyed your excellent and informative presentation. Thank you for sharing.

Maurice Salama - (11/27/2014 11:27 AM)

If you perform implants in the Esthetic Zone this is a MUST lecture to see the Soft Tissue implications and how to manage them. Dr. Salama

Simply I have enjoyed every second of this great presentation, thank u very much and thank u dentalxp

C Eduardo Gonzalez - (8/26/2013 4:01 AM)

Dr. Allen Would you please share your implant surface decontamination procedure? How do you achieve it if with your minimally invasive procedures you don't raise flaps but rather work with tunnels? Thank you for your great presentation.

Band Ditto64 - (8/3/2013 11:54 AM)

Great Lecture Dr. Allen. I really did appreciate the challenges and technical aspects of soft tissue augmentation in defect environments. Do you add any "growth factors" to your Alloderm? thanks Band

Maurice Salama - (8/2/2013 10:20 PM)

Pat; Great job. With implants, would you ever utilize autogenous tissue over Alloderm? What is your criteria? thanks as always Maurice

Nathaniel Podilsky - (7/8/2013 6:35 PM)

Great results. Enjoyed this presentation.

The "Modified Tunnel" Technique and the development of the Lateral Tunnel Approach Premium Member Content

The "Modified Tunnel" Technique and the development of the Lateral Tunnel Approach
The "Modified Tunnel" technique is a method of esthetic connective tissue grafting that protects the interdental papillae. First published in 1999, this lateral tunnel approach uses vertical incisions on both sides of the treatment area. These vertical incisions facilitate placement and positioning of the graft over the root surfaces without the need to disturb the interdental papillae. This technique is very useful in esthetic areas and those that involve several teeth. An acellular dermal connective tissue allograft is an excellent choice of graft material to use with this technique.

From Extraction to Prosthetic Restoration: Considerations for the Esthetic Zone
This webinar will highlight surgical and restorative techniques to accomplish predictable outcomes in the esthetic zone with implant therapy. Treatment modalities will be demonstrated with high quality photography and case series discussion. Surgical modalities presented will include ridge preservation, the current evidence on the use of growth factors such as PRP and hr-PDGF bb. Also timing of implant placement as well as soft and hard tissue augmentation will be discussed. Special emphasis will be placed on immediate provisionalization of implants to accomplish optimal peri-implant mucosa architecture. Techniques to transfer provisional emergence profile to the final restoration will be presented.

Modern Implant Dentistry: Rules of Engagement in the Esthetic Zone - Part 1 of 2
This presentation will focus on the interdisciplinary relationship of the restorative dentist, periodontist and orthodontist to reconstruct the soft tissue foundation for all of these restorative options in anterior tooth replacement. The diagnosis of deficiencies as well as the varied treatment options will be discussed in detail. This includes periodontal crown lengthening, esthetic periodontal plastic soft tissue grafting procedures as well as prescription adjunctive orthodontic tooth movement to manipulate the soft tissue foundation prior to or subsequent with the restorative options of implants, bridges, or pontic replacement.

Prosthetic Soft Tissue Development From Single to Full Arch Reconstruction Premium Member Content

Prosthetic Soft Tissue Development From Single to Full Arch Reconstruction
In addition to surgical intervention is the creation of the specific emergence profile that is essential in the aesthetic zone. The emergence profile composed of 2 parts, the abutment and the subgingival part of the crown. The shape of abutment can be individually shaped so that it gives natural appearance and varies individually (depending on the depth, angulation and diameter of the implant). Sometimes it even dictates the implant position. From a surgical perspective, soft tissue height, position and thickness need to be diagnosed and corrected when needed. From the prosthetic point of view, the emergence profile has to be created to mimic the natural appearance and maintained over time in respect to the biological changes. The course teaches step by step how to be successful with implant prosthetics from single tooth, partially edentulous to full arch reconstruction.

Bipolar Electrosurgery: Gingival Modification in Passive Eruption
Excessive gingival display can affect the total aesthetics of a smile, becoming its focus instead of its frame. This can be the result of passive eruption of the gingival complex as the teeth erupt. The condition of delayed or altered passive eruption exists when the gingival complex remains coronal to the cementoenamel junction (CEJ), with the attachment on the enamel instead of the cementum of the root, giving the appearance of short clinical crowns. Crown lengthening is critical to the success…

Fibrinogen-Induced Regeneration Sealing Technique (F.I.R.S.T.). An Improvement and Modification of Traditional GBR: A Report of Two Cases
Guided bone regeneration is a technique widely known, clinicians know very well indications and limitations of this technique. One of the principles to achieve bone augmentation and formation resides in the stability of the blood clot forming under a barrier membrane. The technique proposed in this article has the goal of providing stabilization to the bone graft by adding fibrin sealant (FS) to the bone graft and also using the fibrin sealant to attach a bone membrane (cortical lamina) to the recipient site. This simple modification of the technique of guided bone regeneration is presented in two successful cases.

Acellular Dermal Matrix Grafts for Root Coverage Procedures: Review of Products and Introduction of a New Technique

Acellular Dermal Matrix Grafts for Root Coverage Procedures: Review of Products and Introduction of a New Technique
Gingival recession remains a significant problem in dental esthetics as well as periodontal health. Adequate zones of keratinized, attached tissue are vital for long-term periodontal health and maintenance. The correction of gingival recession is an important principle in cosmetic dental procedures that requires a harmonious gingival complex. Correction of deficient gingival tissues by either autogenous or allogenic tissue grafts has been well documented in the literature. This article will delineate differences among the various acellular dermal grafts as well as introduce a new technique that can enhance success.
