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.

Great presentation Dr. Said! As difficult as the last case was, it was handled exceptionally well! Would love to see long term follow up posts!

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 ?

Very impressive work sheriff, nice presentation. Proud to see and have expert here from Egypt ;) Wish you all the best in your career.

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

GBR with Individualized Titanium Meshes
According to several authors, Guided bone regeneration is a procedure needed in half of the dental rehabilitations with dental implants. Due to this reality, digital dentistry become an important tool allowing us to be more precise and less invasive. By printing customized titanium meshes based on the patients bone defects, we can now predict the exact volume needed to be regenerate and create a specific device that will help to maintain the space. This takes CAD CAM dentistry to the next level, allowing more predictability in every step of the way, from bone regeneration till prosthetic rehabilitation. techniques more predictable. The authors describe a new guided bone regeneration protocol based on the use of digital planning and fabrication of printed 3D titanium meshes, rigid devices that protect mechanically the scaffold, design over the patient CT scan.

Titanium Mesh and rhBMP-2 in Ridge Augmentation: Options and Limitations Premium Member Content

Titanium Mesh and rhBMP-2 in Ridge Augmentation: Options and Limitations
Titanium mesh has been used in reconstructive surgery and ridge augmentation for several years. The traditional technique involves using cancellous autogenous bone under the mesh scaffold. More recently growth factors and bone substitutes have been utilized as autograft replacements. There are several advantages to using titanium mesh for space maintenance including strength, ease of use, low cost and biocompatibility. However, the difficulty in removing the mesh has led to a search for other space maintenance scaffolds including tenting screws, dense preshaped collagen and porous high-density polyethylene. This webinar will discuss the use of rhBMP-2 for managing horizontal and vertical bone deficiencies with various scaffolds.

Bone Reconstruction: A New Algorithm for the Implantologist Premium Member Content

Bone Reconstruction: A New Algorithm for the Implantologist
Bone augmentation is often required to place an adequate number of dental implants in ideal positions for prosthetic support. In addition to biomechanical demands bone augmentation can also provide proper ridge contour for improved esthetic outcomes. Disadvantages of bone augmentation techniques include increase morbidity, surgical time, costs and treatment length. As such a trend has develop towards treatment approaches that avoid bone grafting including shorter and narrower implants, angled implants and/or fewer implants for prosthetic support. This presentation will look at various bone augmentation techniques, methods to minimize the morbidity of bone grafting and guide clinicians on implant rehabilitation with grafting versus non-grafting approaches.

Intraoral Autogenous Block Onlay Bone Grafting for ExtensiveReconstruction of Atrophic Maxillary Alveolar Ridges

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).

Reconstruction of a Single-Tooth Traumatic Defect in the Anterior Maxilla Using the Khoury Bone Plate Graft

Reconstruction of a Single-Tooth Traumatic Defect in the Anterior Maxilla Using the Khoury Bone Plate Graft
Trauma to teeth and the dentoalveolar process may result in a ridge defect that precludes straightforward implant therapy of the patient. Typically bone and soft tissue augmentation of the area would first be needed to adequately prepare the tissues for the implant and its restoration..Grafting of the site is substantially more difficult in cases where the ridge also lacks adequate height, and techniques to recreate a bony envelope to apply guided bone regeneration may be required. Moreover, defects in the anterior aesthetic zone that require both bone and soft tissue grafting and a restoration that harmonizes the adjacent pink and white aesthetics may be an even more significant challenge to the restorative team. Hereafter a case of trauma to an anterior maxillary tooth that saw destruction of the ridge is presented, with the defect reconstructed to accommodate a functional and aesthetically pleasing implant supported restoration.
