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

filipe lopes - (11/18/2013 11:24 AM)

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!!

Plastic-Esthetic Periodontal and Implant Surgery: A Microsurgical Approach - Part 1
This 2 part presentation is a comprehensive overview of the principles, indications, and clinical techniques of plastic-esthetic periodontal and implant microsurgery, focusing especially on minimal soft tissue trauma and maximally perfect wound closure. Microsurgery provides clinically relevant advantages over conventional macro-surgical concepts for regenerative and plastic-esthetic periodontal surgery, especially in the all-important esthetic zone. The microsurgical principles and procedures presented will described using high resolution multimedia.

Bone Augmentation & Vascular Enhancement Concepts: It’s Time to Make it Simple! Premium Member Content

Bone Augmentation & Vascular Enhancement Concepts: It’s Time to Make it Simple!
Growing bone is fascinating, and clinicians have developed many techniques in that matter, most of them restricted to an elite. Yes, it does take a lot of skills to harvest bone blocks, to stabilize them with screws etc, and without forgetting the soft tissue handling as it can be a real challenge to cover the bone graft especially for a vertical augmentation. The purpose of this presentation is to make the participant think biology first and not mechanic first. A biological thinking will dramatically simplify vertical and/or horizontal bone augmentation procedures. We will also be introducing a new approach for the simplification of soft tissue handling: the Soft Brushing Technique, that will allow the coronal advancement of both buccal and lingual flaps, but also the palatal flap without the need for periosteal releasing incisions.

Emerging Perspectives in Soft Tissue Augmentation: Evolving Tools, Techniques & Materials
Soft tissue root coverage microsurgery and pontic site enhancement are frequently utilized periodontal plastic surgery techniques to create an ideal restorative frame for teeth, pontics and implants. Tunnel, Semilunar, VISTA etc. are among the new age techniques highlighted in this growing area of periodontal microsurgery. New autologous tissue harvest techniques, Allograft ACDM and Bioactive Modifiers have all changed the way we are capable of managing soft tissue deficiencies and have assisted the clinician in improving the healing qualities of these minimally invasive techniques. This lecture will cover site preparation techniques for conventional dentistry as well as prior to and after implant placement.

The Socket-Shield Technique to Support the Buccofacial Tissues at Immediate Implant Placement

The Socket-Shield Technique to Support the Buccofacial Tissues at Immediate Implant Placement
Tooth loss and subsequent ridge collapse continue to burden restorative implant treatment. Careful management of the post-extraction tissues is needed to preserve the alveolar ridge. In-lieu of surgical augmentation to correct a ridge defect, the socket-shield technique offers a promising solution. As the root submergence technique retains the periodontal attachment and maintains the alveolar ridge for pontic site development, this case report demonstrates the hypothesis that retention of a prepared tooth root section as a socket-shield prevents the recession of tissues buccofacial to an immediately placed implant. The socket-shield technique is a highly promising addition to clinical implant dentistry and this case report is among the first to demonstrate the procedure in clinical practice with a 1-year follow up.

Recombinant Human Platelet– Derived Growth Factor: A Systematic Review of Clinical Findings in Oral Regenerative Procedures

Recombinant Human Platelet– Derived Growth Factor: A Systematic Review of Clinical Findings in Oral Regenerative Procedures
The use of recombinant human plateletderived growth factor–BB (rhPDGF) has received Food and Drug Administration approval for the treatment of periodontal and orthopedic bone defects and dermal wound healing. Many studies have investigated its regenerative potential in a variety of other oral clinical indications. The aim of this systematic review was to assess the efficacy, safety, and clinical benefit of recombinant human plateletderived growth factor (rhPDGF) use for alveolar bone and/or soft tissue regeneration. Based on the clinical evidence, rhPDGF is safe and provides clinical benefits when used in combination with bone allografts, xenograft, or β-TCP for the treatment of intrabony and furcation periodontal defects and gingival recession or when used with allografts or xenograft for GBR and ARP.
