"The Soft Block": Treating Severe Recessions Around Dental Implants - Part 1 of 2

Description:
Severe recessions around implants is a common issue. Unhappily this is a problem we have to face in our everyday practice. To deal with it we have to develop strategies to meet our patients expectations. Recessions and peri-implantitis come together very often. Being capable to improve the biological environment around a dental implant may have huge relevance in it´s long-term prognosis. Treatment algorithms proposed by some authors are often very complicated and sometimes frustrating in what comes to results. Filipe Lopes & Bernardo Mira Correa will try to present simple algorithms and biological ways for trying to solve this kind of clinical challenge, other than implant explantation that must be also, and so many times, considered as the first choice. This is intended to be the first of a series of posts on the subject. We will feature different soft tissue management strategies, including autologous grafts and alloderm. We will underline the importance of: diagnosis,PRGF ENDORET® graft, type of implant, grafting technique to use and allografts that can possibly help us on some challenging situations. Emphasis will be also held on tools, the BTI extraction kit, that allow us an easier removal of implants than ever before, reducing dramatically the biological cost of their loss and making it easier to place a new implant. At the end we will try to provide for a simpler treatment algorithm, that has been of good service for us, for some years now.

Hi Roy! I saw your question just now! Thx for watching. In fact this is a very special type of fully epithelized FGG (free gingival graft), so you don´t cover it. Until the end of october 2018 I will publish a brightbook on the technique.

Mansur Roy - (10/5/2017 5:07 PM)

Hi Flipe, Thanks for sharing the case. did you cover the CT graft entirely with the flap?

filipe lopes - (1/6/2017 12:01 PM)

Thx Mo. I posted 2 years and a half ago and the patient still smiles radiantly. That grey collar showing was really an issue for her. Up until now we were succesfull in avoiding expalnting the implant. See u soon in Vegas!

i am sorry but final position is not esthetic...

Maurice Salama - (7/24/2016 8:43 AM)

Excellent and just watched it for a 3rd time....thanks again Maurice

Hi Enrique Trevino! We invite you to also see: Soft Tissue Management - The Pink Contribution to Achieving Esthetic and Long Lasting Smiles, that we also published here on Dental XP! Its shows in detail, our protocol for grafting the donor site with PRGF! we hope you like it too! Best regards Bernardo

Enrique it's nice to see how Sonia Lezyi uses PRGF concomitant with extraordinary soft tissue grafting strategies.

filipe lopes - (10/20/2014 7:41 PM)

Edison thanks for your kind words. Filipe.

Edison Louie - (9/24/2014 10:45 AM)

Filipe, thank you for your kind and prompt response. This is what makes Dental XP so exciting and rewarding. You are one of the gifted presenters who are generous enough to share your knowledge and skills with the clinicians throughout the world.

Restoration of Optimal Esthetics in Complex Clinical Situations
Patients often neglect or delay dental care for an extended time because of their negative experiences with and fear of dental treatments. This neglect may result in the advance of periodontitis with severe bone loss, a substantial number of missing teeth, and problems with the remaining teeth. Preexisting malocclusion can aggravate this condition. This case report demonstrates an interdisciplinary strategic approach, in combination with the use of biologically grounded, clinically proven, and viable techniques and technologies to restore optimal esthetics and function in such complex cases. The authors emphasize the importance of carefully planning the timing and sequence of performing periodontal, orthodontic, and implant therapies. The advanced techniques and technologies successfully implemented in this case report include the growth factor and titanium mesh (Ti mesh)-assisted bone augmentation; ovate pontic-mediated, noninvasive soft tissue contouring; and photofunctionalization

New Classification of Peri-Implantitis & Diagnosis - Part 1 of 2
Peri-implantitis has been receiving attention following recent studies that showed that it is highly prevalent and difficult to manage. This course will provide the latest evidence-based information on peri-implant diseases with emphasis on a team/interdisciplinary approach to treatment. The program will present the updates on the definition and etiology of peri-implantitis from the American Academy of Periodontology’s 2018 consensus meeting. The instructor will present research findings on peri-implant disease diagnosis and management.

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

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 amount of keratinized gingiva. In combination with guided soft tissue augmentation, this flap design enables a three-dimensional peri-implant soft tissue augmentation.

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.

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.

Guidelines for the Diagnosis and Treatment of Peri-Implant Disease

Guidelines for the Diagnosis and Treatment of Peri-Implant Disease
Although some risk factors of peri-implant disease are well defined, the lack of efficient and predictable approaches to treat peri-implantitis has created difficulty in the management of those complications. The aim of this review was the evaluate the reliability of the diagnosis methods and to provide a set of guidelines to treat peri-implant disease. A search of PubMed and a hand search of articles related to peri-implant diseases were conducted up to August 2013. A summary of the current methods for the diagnosis of peri-implantitis, its potential risk factors, and a flow chart to guide the clinical management of these conditions are presented.
