Papilla Preservation and Regeneration in Reconstructive Therapy

Description:
In this lecture presentation, Dr. Thomas Han outlines the clinical decision making rational for choosing a specific surgical technique for diverse papilla regenerative challenges in the anterior region. Dr. Han utilizes the literature and clinical experience to discuss incision design, flap management and suturing techniques to emphasize the different options available to the clinician.

Questions & Comments

Tom; Dr. Han is retired from dentistry now and no longer manages his posts. Some answers for the board based on my own review, sutures 5.0 monofilament and horizontal mattress. This technique would not work well under an existing Pontic and there are better techniques for adjacent root coverage. Best with autologous grafts, less so with ADM. The tissue can be harvested from palate or Tuberosity. Anyone interested Ina hands-on course go to Live course area on DentalXP. Thnx Dr. Salama

where are the answers to the comments

please add a video; what is the suturing technique?thank you.

Leonard Smith934 - (8/9/2012 1:04 PM)

I would be interested in how you sutured the connective tissue in place as well as the suture technique to keep the elevated tissue in place.....horizontal mattress sutures?? Where,5-0,6-0?

Dr. Paul Sierra - (1/14/2012 12:10 AM)

Dr. Han, Would this technique also work to augment the ridge under a pontic as well as achieving root coverage of the adjacent natural teeth? Would it work with ADM? Thank you.

Great technique and results. Please comment on root preparation.

Nicolas Aronna - (10/22/2011 7:45 PM)

thanx doctor!

Sacha Wojtan - (9/13/2011 5:06 PM)

WOW! You make it look so easy. Would this approach also work in filling out a gap under a bridge-pontic? And do you take the CT graft from the palate?

Beautiful work :)

Revisiting the Papilla in 2016 - Part 2 of 2
In dental esthetics the regeneration of a compromised papilla , remains the most complex aspect of any reconstructive endeavor. The original 5mm Rule was found to exist only for a papilla bordered by 2 teeth and was expanded into a classification of 6 Types dependent on alternative adjacent support.e. implants or pontics.

Soft Tissue Donor Selection: “Connective Tissue Grafts Are Not All Created Equal”
With the evolution of periodontal plastic surgery soft tissue grafting is becoming more and more essential in modern dentistry, whether around natural teeth or dental implants. Many donor grafts have been available to choose from, with autogenous grafts are still being the gold standard, in tissue grafting procedures. This webinar is for clinicians who are interested in different tissue grafts procedures but want to know more about the nature of each graft and what to expect in terms of clinical results. In this webinar we will discuss the differences between different autogenous soft tissue grafts and how to utilize them properly to achieve the best results in various clinical situations.

Modern Implant Dentistry: Rules of Engagement in the Esthetic Zone - Part 2 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.

Biologic Strategies to Enhance Clinical and Aesthetic Success in Oral Implantology Premium Member Content

Biologic Strategies to Enhance Clinical and Aesthetic Success in Oral Implantology
This webinar will discuss clinical strategies for treatment of the complex implant site involving bone grafting and implant placement. Our understanding of cellular pathways, and our ability to control the wound response, expands our capacity to effect better aesthetic outcomes and compress treatment time. The reduction of the inflammatory phase of tissue regeneration speeds up osseointegration, prevents crestal bone loss, maintains papillary form, increases the density of peri-implant bone and increases tissue biotype. This enhanced tissue response allows us to predictably treat even the most complex surgical cases, compress time to final reconstruction, and to maintain these favorable tissue outcomes over an extended period of time. The use of dental implants with advanced biologic features and the incorporation autologous growth factors will be demonstrated.

Surgical Veneer Grafting Protocol: Step-by-Step Utilization in the Esthetic Zone
In the lecture, 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. In the surgical part, it will be described the criteria necessary for successfully utilizing minimally invasive protocols within the esthetic zone and the possibility of placing or not placing a bone graft in the “gap” and the opportunity to use a connective tissue graft to overbuild the site bucco-lingually, performing the Surgical Veneer Grafting Protocol, idea'ed by the Agnini brothers.

Dental lasers have evolved considerably as an adjunct and alternative treatment to safely, conservatively, and reliably decrease bacterial levels and improve the hard and soft tissue contours. In selected cases, long-term aesthetic and functional parameters are satisfied with precise restorative planning and technique and by utilizing minimally invasive procedures. Furthermore, patients are provided with optimal results more comfortably and efficiently.

Fundamentally Changing Soft Tissue Grafting

Fundamentally Changing Soft Tissue Grafting
Soft tissue augmentation procedures to increase the existing zone or create a new zone of keratinized tissue have been classically, and are routinely, performed using the patient's palate as the donor material. This article describes the simplistic use of a periodontal material that can be used for soft tissue augmentation procedures without using the patient's own palate to procure the donor tissue. This periodontal material is an acellular dermal allograft that has been used extensively in medicine.…
