Zero Bone Loss Protocol: Influence of Vertical Soft Tissue Thickness on Crestal Bone Stability

Description:
Crestal bone stability is considered to be important for bone preservation, longevity of implants and to prevent peri-implant tissue recession. Implant placement level is important for bone stability. Mucosal tissue thickness was shown to be the factor having impact on bone stability. It was showed that platform switching does not reduce crestal bone loss, if soft tissues at the implant placement are thin.

When is Part release ? Thank You

saadia rehman - (2/6/2018 11:04 PM)

thank you doctor,i would like to ask how much vertical soft tissue thickness is considered as thin ?when we should think that this much soft tissue thickness is safe or may be considered as thin or starting thick?

The part 2- When

Gerald - I believe that we are at a stage where bone loss should no longer be an expected occurrence. the message is that if the treatment design accounts for the known variables that may influence bone loss, i.e. thin biotype, thin labial bone, biologic remodeling, type of connection, cement, occlusion, hygiene... etc, we can minimize, and in more and more cases, eliminate bone loss.
Tom - I believe that the message is that platform switching protocols alone will not override biological remodeling bone loss in thin tissue environments.
Osama - generally 2mm or more is deemed a minimum thickness of tissue to develop optimum and stable long-term environments.

Bright young man, nice presentation on the advantages of a thick biotype and platform switching, however, he did not address the issue of perimplantitis and regardless of the tissue type....bone loss will occur. Gerald Rudick dds Montreal, Canada

Nice presentation. Can we take it that you do not consider biological width a cause for bone loss in thin bio type

Osama Abdel Qader - (12/30/2017 7:05 AM)

Nice presentation of showing the importance of this new parameter... what is the minimum thickness of vertical tissue to call it "Thick Vertical Tissue" ? thank you

ward clemmons530 - (12/26/2017 6:51 PM)

I would imagine that placing an abutment one time and leaving it alone throughout the treatment would also be a factor. Only problem is that you need to use cemented restorations or use some sort of transitional abutment. Very well done. Aciu Labai!

"The Soft Block": Treating Severe Recessions Around Dental Implants - Part 1 of 2
Severe recessions around implants is a common issue. 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. 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.

Partial Extraction Therapy (PET) The Final Frontier
Buccopalatal collapse of the postextraction ridge is a significant challenge in restorative and implant dentistry. A variety of different approaches as well as ridge preservation techniques using tissue and augmentative materials have been proposed in the literature. A slightly different approach, "PET" is to use the tooth itself by purposely maintaining all or a portion of the root in the remaining socket. Root submergence has been reported in the literature for more than 4 decades, and it has been demonstrated that the submerged tooth root retains the periodontal tissues and preserves the bone in pontic sites or below dentures to retain the ridge. The socket-shield technique entails preparing a tooth root section to remain behind on the labial aspect simultaneous to immediate implant placement and has demonstrated histologic and clinical results that are highly promising to esthetic implant treatment.

Zero Bone Loss Protocol: Influence of Vertical Soft Tissue Thickness on Crestal Bone Stability
Crestal bone stability is considered to be important for bone preservation, longevity of implants and to prevent peri-implant tissue recession. Implant placement level is important for bone stability. Mucosal tissue thickness was shown to be the factor having impact on bone stability. It was showed that platform switching does not reduce crestal bone loss, if soft tissues at the implant placement are thin. It is suggested that thin tissues might be thickened during implant placement, thus reducing bone resorbtion. The role of soft tissue thickness is well established in aesthetic treatment. It is known that thin soft tissues present an unfavorable situation for implant placement, crestal bone stability and subsequent prosthetic treatment.

Managing Esthetic Implant Complications Premium Member Content

Managing Esthetic Implant Complications
Dental implant success today is judged not only by osseointegration but also by bone, tissue stability and of course long term esthetic results. Cosmetic predictability can often be difficult to attain, and esthetic implant failures can be multifactorial and patient management issues. Once esthetic implant failures occur, many cannot be fully corrected. Some complications must be addressed by an interdisciplinary dental team. In this summary of case reports, surgical considerations are provided, including cases of facial asymmetry/recession due to facial implant placement or bone loss resulting from technique/treatment failures, as well as papillary deficiencies. Restorative considerations for correcting failures are also discussed.

Microsurgical Soft Tissue Reconstruction for Teeth & Implants - Part 2 of 2
Esthetics plays a key role in a modern society and the average dental health of the population is improving every day. In such environment, the demands of dental treatments are different and dentists should approach their patients in a different way: they should be prepared to implement different and modern techniques around teeth and implants. Soft tissue grafting techniques provide the dentist with an armamentarium that makes possible to prevent and solve many problems and complications around teeth and implants, making more predictable the treatments results. This presentation is focused in the importance of soft tissue grafting techniques around teeth and implants and how to do it in a predictable, modern and a minimally invasive way. We present many different techniques illustrated with clinical cases.

Alveolar Ridge Preservation and Reconstruction

Alveolar Ridge Preservation and Reconstruction
Periodontal plastic surgery procedures designed to reconstruct deformed, partially edentulous residual ridges were introduced to the dental profession between 1971 and 1986. They have been revised and refined to their current state of development, where they now occupy a major place in the reconstructive armamentarium. Before these concepts were developed, it was generally believed that it was impossible to surgically reconstruct deformities in the partially edentulous ridge. Deformities were filled…
