Challenges & Management of Peri-Implant Pink Esthetics in Anterior Implant Therapy

Description:
When considering implant therapy in the esthetic zone, replicating the natural soft tissue frame may present challenges for the treating clinician. A harmonious gingival form and architecture are not only fundamental for achieving adequate peri-implant pink esthetics, but also for simulating a natural emergence for the future restoration. When dealing with clinical situations in which adequate tissue architecture and volume are present, preserving or further enhancing the available support may provide an improved esthetic outcome with less associated morbidity and treatment duration. Nevertheless, reconstruction of atrophic sites due to lost hard and soft tissue volume is often inevitable in the anterior zone, which may necessitate more complex grafting procedures with varying degrees of predictability in achieving ideal peri-implant soft tissues. This presentation will highlight different clinical scenarios in which the lack of hard and soft tissue volume may pose difficulties in achieving ideal peri-implant esthetics, in addition to available clinical strategies on how to manage and minimize hard and soft tissue deficiencies when dealing with implant therapy in the esthetic zone.

Ronnie, thank you for your kind words. I would like to clarify that the shrinkage of the mucograft may be extensive i.e. as mentioned 60-70% in some cases so i would reserve this technique to larger augmented sites where harvesting autogenous tissue will increase the surgical involvement greatly. Also the size of the mucograft has to be sufficient to compensate for that shrinkage. Having said that, the use of the FGGs helps dictate the phenotypic expression, I'm not sure how the mucograft would behave in terms of keratinization if the apical border is all mucosa. I think it would work if you mobilize an adequate band of keratinized tissue from the palate apically to aid with keratinization. Hope this helps.

Excellent presentation, explained in great detail so that I fell comfortable in implanting this immediately on my next case. Question would be could you use the patient's own flood and spin it down in order to get the plugs to use in the sites that you used free-gingival graft tissue . Would that work just as well ?

Thank you Dr. Hisham for your beautiful compliments and encouragement! Regards, Sherif

very informative

Chuck, Your Words left me speechless!! Thank you for your wonderful comment! I do believe that CT grafting and enhancing the tissue biotype is really of crucial importance in the esthetic zone, whenever the pt. is willing and the esthetic demands are high. With regards to DFDBA, i agree with you that FDBA may seem to outperform the demineralized grafts, but the literature is there. TBH i was not really a believer until i saw the cases, yet again the drawback of the time needed to mineralize may make it inferior to the mineralized counterparts. As for the PET philosophy I'm all for it, I've been monitoring your cases on the forum and you're approach and results are unquestionable, however, i do believe careful case selection is key in those cases. My case results are definitely short term, but were able to give me an idea of how different approaches would perform in my hands, so the question is how long will they hold?? Thank you again for your Beautiful words and compliments. Best regards, Sherif

Complete Management of the Implant Site: From Simple Cases to Complex Situations
The health and the structure of the peri-implant tissue is vital for a long term prognosis of aesthetic and functional dental treatments. The prevalence of peri-implant diseases and recessions is a problem that must be overcome by a perfect treatment planning, along with a step-by-step design of the future restorations. When the clinician places an implant, he must consider the 3D positioning regarding the hard and soft tissue. When one decide to restore an implant, he must be aware of the gingival volume and it’s position. In this presentation, we want to show fully documented cases, from bone grafting, soft tissue enhancement, to final restorations.

Esthetic Tissue Reconstruction Around Implants - Part 1 of 2 Premium Member Content

Esthetic Tissue Reconstruction Around Implants - Part 1 of 2
Esthetics in implant-supported restorations is an important clinical objective in contemporary dentistry. Understanding the biological behavior of hard and soft tissues following tooth extraction is the first step to anticipate the physiological tissue remodeling and its consequences. Our objective in these 2 sequencial lectures was to provide straightforward decision trees related to several clinical scenarios observed in routine clinical practice. The 3 fundamental pillars for peri-implant excellence are: restorative-driven implant position, hard and soft tissue reconstruction using different biomaterials and grafts, and prosthetic management. Using this philosophical approach seems to provide esthetic and stable results over time irrespective of the initial clinical condition.

Intraoral Autogenous Block Onlay Bone Grafting for ExtensiveReconstruction of Atrophic Maxillary Alveolar Ridges
Autologous bone grafting used with dental implants was originally described by Bränemarketal in 1975, and is now a well-accepted procedure in oral and maxillofacial rehabilitation.Placement of an endosseous implant requires sufficient bone volume for complete bone coverage. Furthermore, the pattern of ridge resorption contributes to an unfavorable maxillomandibular relationship, requires angulations of the implants and/or angled abutments, and affects the proximity of adjacent facial concavities(maxillary sinus, nasal cavity) and vital structures(mandibular nerve).
