What Tissue Changes Can We Expect with Anterior Implant Therapy?

Description:
Minimizing soft tissue changes following anterior implant therapy is one of the holy grails in implant dentistry. Gingival recession will not only impact the patient’s esthetics, the difficulties in correcting such problem create further challenges to the clinicians. This presentation will focus on how much soft tissue changes can be expected following implant in the esthetic zone. Discussion will be made as to the etiology of gingival recession and what we can do to prevent it from happening.

Awesome presentation Dr. Kan! Do you offer detailed courses of your technique? Thank you

Outstanding and transparently honest presentation , in an area which will continuously evolve and enhance by the research and knowledge sharing of researchers and clinicians as yourself , and through Dentalxp. Thanks

Dr kan excellent presentation , I have question you took inconsideration the final restaurantion such as zirconium , gold .titanium abutments as part of your studies as part of success or failure to keep the level of free gingival margin ,cordially again MC

Well structured, wonderful presentation.

Dr Kan your way of seeking perfection is inspiring, excellent standards !! Will be watching this lecture again and again.. Thank you! yaarob

Dr. Kan, thanks so much for this presentation. This is exactly where we are now. I do disagree a little because I really think that SS will be the solution to our long lasting resorption problems. Resorption, as you mentioned, doesn´t stop at 4 or 5 years. So, I we don´t fool the bone...with a SS... Regards, Jorge

Dr. Kan, I thoroughly enjoyed your excellent presentation and am very appreciative of your sharing of your long term experiences. I have heard you lecture many times in Orange County and at Loma Linda. Will you be presenting on building up soft tissue for existing flat level tissue between 4 maxillary implants?

Laser in Periodontal Plastic Surgery
Today aesthetics has become the main reason for dental consultation. The appearance and shape of soft tissues are an essential part of achieving smile balance and harmony. In recent years, the use of lasers has evolved significantly in periodontal plastic surgery, due to its applications, such as; the ability to offer treatments without sutures, minor tissue damage, minor bleeding and therefore promote faster tissue recovery. This time we used GEMINI Ultradent double wavelength diode laser, from 810nm to 980nm, super pulsed with a power of up to 20 watts; improving coagulation performance and providing a faster and more precise cut than other diode lasers.

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.

Fibrin Assisted Soft Tissue Promotion (FASTP)
Soft tissue recession around teeth and implants is an epidemic problem in the field of dentistry. A predictable and long-term soft tissue augmentation outcome is primarily dependent on proper diagnosis, prognosis and treatment planning. Harvesting limitations of autogenous tissue from the palate represent a true challenge when treating patients with multiple recessions or gingival deformities around teeth and dental implants. The Advanced Platelet Rich Fibrin (APRF) and injectable platelet-rich fibrin (iPRF) are promising tissue promoters that can be a suitable alternative option.

A Review of Clinical Applications for Soft Tissue Allografts & Autografts: Solutions for Teeth, Implants, and Dentures Premium Member Content

A Review of Clinical Applications for Soft Tissue Allografts & Autografts: Solutions for Teeth, Implants, and Dentures
The presentation focuses on the clinical applications for acellular dermal graft (ADG) materials. ADGs have been commonly presented and discussed to provide solutions for treating gingival recession. Compared to autogenous grafts, they have the advantage of minimizing pain, discomfort, and surgery time for patients by avoiding an intraoral donor site such as the palate. In addition to treating gingival recession, ADGs also have uses in bone grafting surgeries such as socket grafting and ridge augmentations (GBR) when they are utilized as a barrier membrane. Finally, ADGs can be combined with bone grafting materials to aid in the augmentation of edentulous ridges to aid denture support. While this last application is less common, it's use is worthy of discussion.

Fibrinogen-Induced Regeneration Sealing Technique (F.I.R.S.T.). An Improvement and Modification of Traditional GBR: A Report of Two Cases
Guided bone regeneration is a technique widely known, clinicians know very well indications and limitations of this technique. One of the principles to achieve bone augmentation and formation resides in the stability of the blood clot forming under a barrier membrane. The technique proposed in this article has the goal of providing stabilization to the bone graft by adding fibrin sealant (FS) to the bone graft and also using the fibrin sealant to attach a bone membrane (cortical lamina) to the recipient site. This simple modification of the technique of guided bone regeneration is presented in two successful cases.

Oral Soft Tissue Laser Ablative and Coagulative Efficiencies Spectra

Oral Soft Tissue Laser Ablative and Coagulative Efficiencies Spectra
The key to the success of soft tissue lasers is their ability to cut and coagulate the soft tissue at the same time. Present work is aimed to derive the wavelength-dependent differences in photo-thermal ablation and coagulation efficiencies for oral soft tissue pulsed dental Near-IR Diode, Mid-IR Erbium and IR CO2 lasers. Even though the soft tissue photothermal ablation has been extensively studied, there remains a discrepancy between (a) the widely proliferated notion about efficient Near-IR 800-1,100 nm laser ablation of the oral soft tissue, and (b) studies reporting the inefficient soft tissue Near-IR absorption/ablation. Indeed, the notions about “the key to the usefulness of the Nd:YAG is that this wavelength is highly absorbed in oral soft tissue”, and “all currently available dental laser instruments and their emission wavelengths have indications for use for incising, excising... oral soft tissue surgery”, contradict an observation illustrated here...

Modified IVAN Technique: Long-Term Follow-Up of 20 Cases Over 2 to 11 Years

Modified IVAN Technique: Long-Term Follow-Up of 20 Cases Over 2 to 11 Years
When natural teeth fail, frequently there is a loss of hard and soft tissue. This may complicate subsequent dental implant placement by creating insufficient bone to house the implant. This also occurs when the tooth has been missing for an extended period, especially in the premaxilla, where the bone is less dense and often lacks sufficient volume of facial bone. Site reconstruction to accommodate implant placement often requires both hard and soft tissue augmentation. The modified interpositional vascularized augmentation neogenesis (mIVAN) technique achieves the desired treatment goals in both delayed and immediate placement scenarios. The technique will be discussed as well as the long-term follow-up on 20 cases.
