“Bernotti V-Y Flap”: A Minimally Invasive Recession Coverage Technique

Description:
The Bernotti V-Y Flap, it’s a coronally advanced flap technique with a “V-Y’’ flap design, which consist in a microsurgery technique with or without connective tissue graft, that will improve mucosal biotype and keratinized band in a predictable way for isolated mucosal recession, dehiscence and translucent tissue, at teeth or implants sites. It is a conservative flap design, inspired in Semilunar and Modified Semilunar Tarnow’s technique, to minimize interproximal crestal bone loss and possible loss of papillae around teeth or implants, marginal mucosal position is stabilized avoiding adverse aesthetic outcomes. At least (two) 2mm of keratinized mucosa must be left on each side of the flap to preserve blood supply and avoid loss of crestal marginal bone. Miller Class I and II recession defects with a minimum length of (two) 2 mm are suitable to be selected to perform the Bernotti V-Y Flap; The Bernotti V-Y Flap consist of a pedicle flap, making a ¨V ¨incision apically to the recession defect. The incision ends on each inter-proximal area of the tooth or the implant, but not all the way to the tip of the papilla. Afterwards a mid-facial intra-sulcular incision is made, to allow a coronal movement of the marginal tissue with no tension. The flap is coronally maintained, when it is sutured the vertical slope of the ¨Y¨ incision. Pushing or advancing coronally the flap to cover the mucosal recession without making any tension to the pedicle flap, avoiding any incision or suture at the papillae that could compromised blood supply. The Bernotti V-Y Flap is recommended in the presence of a Keratinized mucosa band or in combination with tissue graft, either on teeth or implants sites. In order to cover isolated mucosa recession, treat dehiscence, translucent tissue and improve mucosa biotype. Stability and aesthetic outcomes are achieved with the Bernotti V-Y Flap.

Wonderful presentation Ana Luisa. I was privileged to have seen it live.

Very nice lecture and great technique. It happens when we love our profession and think a lot about it. What do you think about utilizing tuberosity bone instead of mandibular bone? BTW, it`s nice that you saved this surprise for XP Symposium:)) Congratulations!

Maurice Salama - (3/2/2018 9:26 AM)

Well done and very innovative. We need more follow up and clinical research comparing long term success and versus other conventional approaches. Thanks Dr. Salama

Excellent technique ! Great presentation ! I had the privilege to see both of these procedures during Dr. Ana Luisa Bernotti ‘s live surgeries and I was impressed by the results and simplicity of the technique. We need more unique people like you Dr. Bernotti ! Your skills, passion and dedication are above extraordinary! Congratulations !!!!!

What Tissue Changes Can We Expect with Anterior Implant Therapy?
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.

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.

While different surgical techniques can restore most aspects of a ridge deficiency,as part of the soft tissue restorative frame, the regeneration of lost proximal papilla form is surgically limited to those papillae bordered on each side by a pontic The Classification of 6 types of papilla defects is based on the specifics of the restorative support on either side of the individual site,and can therefore be a tooth, implant or pontic, or combinations of the 3.

Acellular Dermal Grafts in the Correction of Gingival Recession: Discovering the Possibilities Premium Member Content

Acellular Dermal Grafts in the Correction of Gingival Recession: Discovering the Possibilities
Autogenous connective tissue grafts from the palate have been the gold standard for surgically correcting gingival recession for decades. With the advent of newer soft (and hard) tissue allografts, grafting procedures are increasingly predictable, quick, effective, and less painful for patients. In this presentation, follow the evolution of root coverage surgery from autogenous grafts to the more contemporary alternatives of today. Discover how these newer materials are making it easier for patients to say "yes" and how their results can impact the level of esthetics, periodontal health and predictable restorative dentistry our profession can deliver.

Optimal implant placement can be achieved only if the ridge maintains its dimensions and the qllality of bone. To prevent the resorption of the ridge and to enhance the quality of regenerated bone, two main approaches have been suggested. Palt I of this article presents a modified regenerative technique - the "socket seal surgery"' (SSS). Part II will present a modified prosthetic technique - the "cervical contouring concept" (CCC) - and it will be published in the May, 1994, issue of PP&A. The…

Maintaining Interimplant Crestal Bone Height Via a Combined Platform-Switched, Laser-Lok Implant/Abutment System: A Proof-of-Principle Canine Study

Maintaining Interimplant Crestal Bone Height Via a Combined Platform-Switched, Laser-Lok Implant/Abutment System: A Proof-of-Principle Canine Study
Interimplant papillae are critical for achieving esthetic implant-supported restorations in the maxillary esthetic zone. Stable papillary anatomy, however, depends upon a stable volume underlying crestal bone for support. Multiple studies have documented a critical interimplant distance of 3mm under which crestal bone resorption occurs. This preclinical proof-of-principle canine study examines a novel implant-abutment system design, combining platform switching with precisely configured laser-ablated abutment and implant microgrooves to maintain interimplant crestal bone at interimplant distances of 2 and 4 mm. Results of this initial preclinical study suggest that it is possible through precise implant/abutment design modifications to place adjacent implants at distance of 2 to 4 mm without inducing subpapillary crestal bone loss.

Soft Tissue Waxup and Mock-Up as Key Factors in a Treatment Plan: Case Presentation
Rehabilitation of edentulous spaces in esthetic areas is a challenge to the clinician due to the loss of soft tissues. In these clinical situations, it would be desirable to evaluate and predict the gingival architecture to recover in the oral rehabilitation. To fulfill this need, the diagnostic was should anticipate the final rehabilitation with the integration of hard and soft tissue.
