A Novel Surgical-Prosthetic Approach to Optimize Peri-Implant Tissue Esthetics

Description:
The achievement of an aesthetic implant-supported restoration is a constant challenge to the restorative dentist. Due to the circular shape of the implant and its smaller diameter, when compared to the root of a natural tooth, a dilemma inevitably occurs of how to construct an artificial crown that will imitate the natural tooth crown form. The appearance of the surrounding soft tissue is of major importance, and various techniques have been developed to guide its topography. The Marginal Migration Concept is a technique that helps the clinician in order to achieve a long-term predictable outcome in the Aesthetic zone by enhancing the surrounding tissues. The lecture will show step-by-step clinical procedures from diagnostic models through surgery with immediate provisional restoration therapy to the definitive restorations.

thank you for the straight and simple technique

Dear dr. Pohl, thank u for your comment. As for the part you mentioned you don't like, xenografts still remain the golden standard for the aesthetic zone among many experts in such a scenario. Scientific evidence and many many beautiful results have shown this.

konstantinos valavanis - (8/16/2017 6:00 AM)

Dear dr. Emil , we don't gain papillae in such a scenario as they belong to the neighboring teeth with sharpey fibers. We just "squeeze" them properly in order to have an ideal tone. The distal papilla on a central incisor in a NON THICK soft tissue biotype will shrink a bit due to the fact that only the smaller surface of the neighboring lateral has been left to support it with sharpey fibers. The main issue though on the prosionalisation phase is to gain the marginal tissue. The more marginal migration of the tissue we have the smaller the papillae appear..... cheers

Thank you dr.Durrani.

Very nice concept and great results. The second law of physics says that two objects cannot occupy the same place at the same time. And you show very nice how to make a space for the soft tissue. What I don`t like is the fact that a buccal implant surface is surrounded with a xenograft only.

I like This technique, but i think you can gain More papilla during provisional phase

FARHAN DURRANI492 - (7/23/2017 8:54 AM)

Great Presentation

konstantinos valavanis - (7/22/2017 2:58 PM)

Hi Mo:) great question which means a long answer... type 2 socket is the one with the most controversial treatment scenarios as there is a defect in the hard but not in soft tissues. Of course clinically there are many different sub-categories of type 2 sockets. i like to see 5 sub-categories: a) small mid-facial defect of the buccal plate b) a bigger defect but the base of the buccal plate is present c)no buccal plate is present d)no buccal plate is present and also inteproximal defect(s) is/are present e) no buccal plate and palatal bone defect we can understand that the bigger the hard tissue defect present, the thicker the soft tissue biotype is in order to be in the type 2 socket category, meaning there is no way to have a missing buccal plate, thin soft tissues and no soft tissue recession. Keeping all this in mind i treat with my concept as described on the video the 2 first sub-categories of type 2 sockets with minor modifications as i show in the last case. I promise to share and discuss with you and the dental XP community my treatment approach for all subcategories in type 2 sockets on February in Florida. big hug

Kostas can you describe your approach to Type 2 Sockets using the "marginal migration" concept you describe here? Thanks Maurice

Esthetics Around Implants; Introducing the "Snake" Technique !
The “Snake technique” is a new concept in minimally invasive surgery.  It is based on old fundamental principles that offer reliable and predictable results. The “Snake technique” is a pediculated gingival graft, which unlike free grafts (CTG, FGG) offers several advantages and a lower surgical stress for our patients by having no need for an additional surgical site. As the small details make the biggest differences, the “Snake technique” may add value to both the surgical course of therapies selected as well as the relationship with our patients who demand minimally invasive treatments.

Surgical Concepts to Treat Esthetic Implant Disaster Cases - Part 1 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.

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.

Hard and Soft Tissue Augmentation: Optimizing Esthetic Results for the Restorative Dentist
Contemporary patient expectations have made esthetics a major requisite of all treatment plans, especially in situations where there is a high smile line. Although new restorative materials have highly improved predictability and esthetic outcomes, soft and hard tissue management play a fundamental role when working in esthetic areas. To achieve ideal esthetics, preservation of the natural soft and hard tissue architecture is a primary clinical objective. These new proposed techniques illustrate the importance of pre-prosthetic soft and hard tissue management when working in highly esthetic compromised areas.

Alveolar Ridge Preservation and Reconstruction

Alveolar Ridge Preservation and Reconstruction
Periodontal plastic surgery procedures designed to reconstruct deformed, partially edentulous residual ridges were introduced to the dental profession between 1971 and 1986. They have been revised and refined to their current state of development, where they now occupy a major place in the reconstructive armamentarium. Before these concepts were developed, it was generally believed that it was impossible to surgically reconstruct deformities in the partially edentulous ridge. Deformities were filled…
