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.

filipe lopes - (11/24/2013 2:19 PM)

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!!

A Novel Technique for Epithelium Removal from FGG
Removing epithelium from a free gingival graft the Zucchelli Mucogingival Esthetic Surgery does it has always been a challenge for me. I can never quite remove the epithelium as seamlessly as Professor Zuccheli. This is a technique I have experimented with recently which greatly simplifies the technique by holding the tissue firmly between two sterile tongue depressors. Give it a try and let me know how it works for you!

Surgical Veneer Grafting: Utilization in Immediate Implant Placement
The management of the digital implant prosthetic dentistry, especially in the anterior esthetic area, is one of the hottest topics in Dentistry. The diagnostic phase is critical. In the course, are discussed all the parameters to achieve the correct diagnosis of the socket and the various treatment plan correlated to each anatomical type of socket. The Dual Zone approach (bone zone and tissue zone) will be evaluated and discussed in detail, regarding each of their variables.

Is There One or More Reasons to Optimize the PRF & PRP Protocols? Future Trends in Dentistry, Orthopedics and Facial Aesthetics
The “Advanced” PRF (A-PRF) and “Injectable” PRF (I-PRF) protocols were designed with this new concept. Indications are numerous in all medical fields where we need regeneration: bone, cartilage, skin etc... However, the use of growth factors is not a guarantee of long term stability, as they are active only at the beginning of the process. Numerous rules of tissue engineering have to be applied to maintain the regenerated bone through an adequate blood supply: this lecture is an enlightenment on the biological and mechanical conditions for long term stability of the bone: “grafted bone” or “bone around implants”.

Acellular Dermal Grafts in the Correction of Gingival Recession: Discovering the Possibilities Premium Member Content

Acellular Dermal Grafts in the Correction of Gingival Recession: Discovering the Possibilities
Autogenous connective tissue grafts from the palate have been the gold standard for surgically correcting gingival recession for decades. With the advent of newer soft (and hard) tissue allografts, grafting procedures are increasingly predictable, quick, effective, and less painful for patients. In this presentation, follow the evolution of root coverage surgery from autogenous grafts to the more contemporary alternatives of today. Discover how these newer materials are making it easier for patients to say "yes" and how their results can impact the level of esthetics, periodontal health and predictable restorative dentistry our profession can deliver.

The Management of Recession Midfacial to Immediately Placed Implants in the Aesthetic Zone

The Management of Recession Midfacial to Immediately Placed Implants in the Aesthetic Zone
Immediate placement and loading protocols are the most technique sensitive and at the highest risk of complication, especially in the aesthetic zone. The peri-implant tissues undergo a resorption pattern that may see exposure of parts supporting the restoration, otherwise intended to be submerged, with extreme aesthetic compromise or even complete failure of treatment. The literature is not definitive in terms of any one treatment modality to recover such a complication. Grafting the exposure by a guided bone regeneration technique and an adjunct soft tissue augmentation could well restore an unaesthetic recession exposure. Recovery of midfacial recession by soft tissue augmentation alone may be successful, as is presented hereafter.

Similarities Between an Acellular Dermal Allograft and a Palatal Graft for Tissue Augmentation
Predictable tissue regeneration presents a considerable challenge in the surgical treatment of gingival tissue defects. Soft-tissue augmentation procedures to increase the existing or create a new zone of attached keratinized gingival tissue have classically been performed using the patient's own masticatory mucosa and, more recently, using an acellular dermal allograft as the donor material. This article presents a clinical case whereby an acellular dermal allograft was placed on the buccal surface…
