Papilla Management in a Severe Periodontal and Cosmetic Deformity: Combining Veneer into Full Graft (ViFG) and Veneer into Split Graft (ViSG)

Description:
Bone defects and periodontal disease can create challenging defects in the anterior area. The esthetic compromise of the anterior regions takes us to the difficult task of trying to solve our patient´s problems as rapidly as possible, with minimum discomfort. When we have such severe defects as the one presented here, it´s essential to plan in advance and to be sure of what is possible to correct with bone grafting and with soft tissue management. The key question in this clinical case is to be able to place the soft tissue graft exactly where you want it to heal. You also have to know in advance, and of course inform your patient, that you will have to perform at least one additional soft tissue graft, besides the one which has been done simultaneously with implant placement and immediate load. In our clinical practice we use routinely PRGF ENDORET grafts, not only as vehicle for particulate graft transportation, but also as a biological enhancer of both oseointegration and soft tissue healing. The quality of the final soft tissue contour was provided by the quantity of keratinized gingiva derived from the two soft tissue procedures as well as from the preservation of the epithelial band attached to the connective tissue graft collected from the palate. This innovative procedure allowed the creation of a better papilla like formation between implants and a maintainable end result.

Good result

How about thickness after healing? Don´t you think it´s more stable through time?

Bernardo Mira Correa - (1/11/2014 1:27 PM)

I totally agree with you Maurice, with ACDM horizontal soft tissue enhancement can be achieved, but this kind of both vertical and horizontal need, would not work properly with ACDM.

Dear Vinh Nguyen and Maurice, I´ve just posted a small video, as promised, where it´s possible to see the end result 4 years after surgery. Hopefully the video will be available soon. I think the result was pretty acceptable from an aesthetic and smile point of view. She´s quite happy and much more smiley (so tells her husband! :) ) without being afraid of doing so. That´s our real reward, trying to help, in some way, other people.

Maurice Salama - (11/18/2013 11:28 AM)

Filipe; No way that ACDM would work here like autologous tissue. I agree with your approach and hope to see more from you and your TEAM. regards Maurice

Bernardo thank you for showing up! I know you also like this wedge palatal graft technique. Bernardo and I have discussed, during this patient´s treatment wether or not we could reach the same results with accelular dermal matrix. What do you guys, both think about this issue?

filipe lopes - (11/18/2013 11:18 AM)

Hello Maurice. An "Excellent job" from Dr. Salama is really a compliment for me. In fact in these kind of clinical situations we can never expect 100% regeneration. I´d love to have done orthodontics to bring all the tissues to the coronal... but when I told the patient that she would still probably have to go through soft tissue management procedures she refused to wear braces.

filipe lopes - (11/18/2013 11:14 AM)

Thank you for your kind remark Vinh Nguyen. I´ll be posting soon, in the posts area of dental xp, a smile of this same patient & intra-oral photo records 4 years after treatment. I think it´ll be nice to see how things have been evolving since then. Dr. Filipe Lopes Portugal

Bernardo Mira Correa - (11/18/2013 10:07 AM)

Very challenging situation indeed! Great peri-implant soft tissue's enhancement! Nice job Filipe Lopes!!

Minimally Invasive Protocols for Total Esthetic Reconstructions Premium Member Content

Minimally Invasive Protocols for Total Esthetic Reconstructions
One of the biggest challenges that we dentists have are those cases that require a multidisciplinary approach which traditionally were managed using invasive and long term treatments. Nowadays, and depending on the case, the contemporary dentist can offer minimally invasive treatments which allow us to modify the shape of the hard and soft tissues. The combination of surgical lip repositioning with periodontal plastic surgery yields highly effective results in the treatment of gummy smiles. During patient examination it is important to establish the etiology responsible for the excessive gingival display. The combined technique can be considered as an alternative option to more invasive procedures. The prognosis is acceptable and the patient realizes that the esthetic problem has been minimized.

Apical Mattress Suture: Prevention of "Oxidative Stress" of Bone & Soft Tissue

Apical Mattress Suture: Prevention of "Oxidative Stress" of Bone & Soft Tissue
It’s impossible to heal well and fast when the tissue is in oxidative stress.. It occurs when there is an excess of oxidants or deficiency of antioxidants: smokers and diabetics have issues because they are in chronic oxidative stress... Tension free flap closure in mandatory. Otherwise, soft tissue and bone will fall in oxidative stress. The solution is to suture the flaps with an adequate technique. In this presentation, we show how to achieve soft tissue immobility and fixed buccal flap. How to manage the sutures? When to remove them? What’s the best material? How to handle a flat knot and the following knots? How to increase the soft tissue thickness? etc… All details and clinical follow-up are described in this short presentation.

Zero Bone Loss Protocol: Influence of Vertical Soft Tissue Thickness on Crestal Bone Stability Premium Member Content

Zero Bone Loss Protocol: Influence of Vertical Soft Tissue Thickness on Crestal Bone Stability
Crestal bone stability is considered to be important for bone preservation, longevity of implants and to prevent peri-implant tissue recession. Implant placement level is important for bone stability. Mucosal tissue thickness was shown to be the factor having impact on bone stability. It was showed that platform switching does not reduce crestal bone loss, if soft tissues at the implant placement are thin. It is suggested that thin tissues might be thickened during implant placement, thus reducing bone resorbtion. The role of soft tissue thickness is well established in aesthetic treatment. It is known that thin soft tissues present an unfavorable situation for implant placement, crestal bone stability and subsequent prosthetic treatment.

A Review of Clinical Applications for Soft Tissue Allografts & Autografts: Solutions for Teeth, Implants, and Dentures Premium Member Content

A Review of Clinical Applications for Soft Tissue Allografts & Autografts: Solutions for Teeth, Implants, and Dentures
The presentation focuses on the clinical applications for acellular dermal graft (ADG) materials. ADGs have been commonly presented and discussed to provide solutions for treating gingival recession. Compared to autogenous grafts, they have the advantage of minimizing pain, discomfort, and surgery time for patients by avoiding an intraoral donor site such as the palate. In addition to treating gingival recession, ADGs also have uses in bone grafting surgeries such as socket grafting and ridge augmentations (GBR) when they are utilized as a barrier membrane. Finally, ADGs can be combined with bone grafting materials to aid in the augmentation of edentulous ridges to aid denture support. While this last application is less common, it's use is worthy of discussion.

The Root Submergence Technique at Single Tooth Sites to Short-Span Edentulous Sites: A Step-By-Step Partial Extraction Therapy Protocol
Submerging roots for ridge preservation was the earliest partial extraction therapy and has been described since the 1970s. Despite the approximately 47 animal and human studies published since, an updated and contemporary step-by-step protocol has not yet been provided. This technique report describes in detail how to manage submerged roots at single tooth sites and at short-span edentulous areas.

Buccal Sliding Palatal Pedicle Flap Technique for Wound Closure After Ridge Augmentation

Buccal Sliding Palatal Pedicle Flap Technique for Wound Closure After Ridge Augmentation
One standard approach for wound closure after ridge augmentation is coronal flap advancement. Coronal flap advancement results in displacement of the mucogingival junction and reduction of the vestibulum. In the maxilla, a buccal sliding palatal flap can be applied for primary wound closure after ridge augmentation. The dissected part of the palatal connective tissue is left exposed, thus eliminating or reducing the amount of the coronal flap advancement respectively and increasing the amount of keratinized gingiva. In combination with guided soft tissue augmentation, this flap design enables a three-dimensional peri-implant soft tissue augmentation.

A Decade of the Socket-Shield Technique: A Step-by-Step Partial Extraction Therapy Protocol

A Decade of the Socket-Shield Technique: A Step-by-Step Partial Extraction Therapy Protocol
Ten years have passed since Hürzeler and coworkers first introduced the socket-shield technique. Much has developed and evolved with regard to partial extraction therapy, a collective concept of utilizing the patient’s own tooth root to preserve the periodontium and peri-implant tissue. The specifications, steps, instrumentation, and procedures discussed in this article are the result of extensive experience in refining the socket-shield technique as we know it today. A repeatable, predictable protocol is requisite to providing tooth replacement in esthetic dentistry. Moreover, a standardized protocol provides a better framework for clinicians to report data relating to the technique with procedural consistency. This article aims to illustrate a reproducible, step-by-step protocol for the socket- shield technique at immediate implant placement and provisionalization for single-rooted teeth.
