Vestibuloplasty: Indications and Techniques

Description:
 Following the complete loss of teeth, the alveolar bone undergoes various degrees of resorption, particularly in response to tissue-supported conventional dentures. This results in loss of vestibule and decreased surface area for denture support. In this presentation, Dr. H. Ryan Kazemi reviews various vestibuloplasty procedures that have been described for restoring the vestibular depth and increasing denture surface area. Additionally, he discusses the application of vestibuloplasty in the management of patients with bone augmentation and implants who commonly present with decreased vestibular depth, the inadequate zone of keratinized gingiva, and thin soft tissue biotype. A step-by-step surgical technique is presented that will increase vestibular depth, the zone of attached gingiva, and soft tissue thickness for enhanced aesthetics and function of dental implants.

Beautiful presentation! I have a question please: in the case when we use Alloderm, is there any concerns leaving it expose? and is healing period same for both FGG and Alloderm? Thank you

if we leave the periosteum raw, will it heal by secondary intension? if this is possible then we dont need to take graft from palate. anywhichways we are leave the donor site raw

Hamid Kazemi - (5/15/2016 4:02 PM)

Thank you all for your feedback. The graft around implants #19 and 20 was indeed Alloderm and having it exposed is not an issue particularly when there is small gaps. Even in large areas over coverage where Alloderm is entirely exposed when placed on top of perisoteum, it incorporates and heals predictably with regeneration of new keratinized gingiva.

Excessive Gingival Display Managed by Surgical Lip Reposition, Aesthetic Crown Lengthening and Veneers
Excessive gingival display can be managed by a variety of treatment modalities, depending on the etiology. Mild and moderate gummy smiles can be successfully treated by periodontal plastic surgery, however for excessive gingival display as in cases of VME II or III with 5 to 8 mm or more of gingival exposure this procedure is not enough. Many patients decline the more invasive Le Fort osteotomy and opt for a less invasive surgical lip repositioning procedure. Currently Botox is used as alternative, but this is only a temporary treatment with very short effectiveness. That is why we suggest surgical lip repositioning as an effective procedure to reduce gingival display by positioning the upper lip in a more coronal location. The long-term stability of the results remains to be seen, but it holds promise as an alternative treatment to more invasive procedures.

Tissue Thickness, Cement & Platform Switching; The Science
Mucosal tissue thickness was shown to be the factor having impact on crestal bone stability. Even platform switching of the implant-abutment connection does not reduce crestal bone loss, if soft tissues at the implant placement are thin.

Socket Shield Technique with Immediate Implant Placement & Provisional Premium Member Content

Socket Shield Technique with Immediate Implant Placement & Provisional
The collapse of the buccal bone and the subsequent recession following teeth extraction is effectively prevented with the socket shield technique. This short presentation goes through the techniques for socket shield preparation of a central incisor as well as the fabrication of an immediate chorused provisional utilizing the patients own crown. Creating a walk out as you walk in scenario. This presentation will show a number of tips and tricks to make this technique as simple as possible. It will also show long term stability of the soft tissue and ridge after 18 months. This technique is one that needs to be in everyones armamentarium. The benefits are unbelievable.

Positive & Negative Factors in Stem Cells & Wound Healing: Solutions for Long Term Stability
The main factor for soft and hard tissue healing is the speed and quality of new vascularization. This lecture will present all the positive and negative factors who control the angiogenesis, blood supply and bone metabolism: -Biological factors as vit. D and cholesterol have to be checked before the surgery -The management of the flaps with sutures is one the main factor for the bone and soft tissue maintenance.. -The soft brushing technique is a new technique which increases the flap without periosteal incision nor bleeding. -Careful Implant placement without too much torque, specially in cortical bone or grafted bone at the re-entry.. -The A-PRF liquid and i-PRF are solutions to reduce the mobility of the granules (sticky bone) with an improvement of angiogenesis The use of growth factors is a stimulation of angiogenesis. The prevention of the negative factors will allow us to achieve the long term stability.

Soft Tissue Donor Selection: “Connective Tissue Grafts Are Not All Created Equal” Premium Member Content

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.

Bone Regeneration and Tissue Acceptance of Human Fascia Lata Grafts Adjacent to Dental Implants
The biologic principle of guided tissue regeneration (GTR) has been studied extensively in hopes of regenerating alveolar bone. Various materials have been utilized as regenerative membranes; however, all materials have disadvantages, and the ideal membrane material is yet to be identified. In this case report, human freeze-dried fascia lata strips were used as a regenerative barrier membrane in conjunction with the placement of endosseous root implants and demineralized, freeze-dried bone allograft.…
