Clinical Procedures to Control Tissue Esthetics in Implant Dentistry

Description:
The demand for creating esthetic restorations has become a consistent theme in dental literature and in daily clinical practice. Surgical concepts that are emphasized as important to the esthetic outcome include resective procedures to change bone volume and levels, as well as additive procedures such as tissue grafting to alter the biotype and volume around teeth and implants. Predominately with implant treatment, today's surgical and restorative strategies play an important role in post-extractive tissue guidance, mandating precise surgical techniques, and emphasizing cooperation and coordination between the surgical and restorative team members. This webinar will explore some of the complications of treatment, underscoring the responsibility of the surgical and restorative teams to critically assess emerging treatment concepts, materials and techniques.

Excellent presentation.I presume you are doing alot with the microscope. Great to here proper placement of cement margins in implant crowns. Margins should always be visiable when possible. Now we have to caarry this over to non implant restorations. David Simmons

Thank you very much :) very well structured protocols... and magnificent presentation..

Maurice Salama - (4/23/2015 8:10 PM)

Superb clinical skills on display. The tissue is a bigger issue than ever before and plays and expanding role in all we do in the esthetic zone and especially with implants. A must see over and over again.....thanks Dr. Salama

Soft tissue improvement and prosthetic management in the aesthetic zone. Premium Member Content

Soft tissue improvement and prosthetic management in the aesthetic zone.
The restorative dentist is facing many challenges along the aesthetic road. One of the hardest steps is to harmonize the gingival appearance with the white smile. The soft tissue improvement around teeth and implants is really important for the long term outcome. That is why most of today's courses and lectures are focusing on this topic. The presenter will describe some clinical situations where the muco-gingival surgery payed a big role in the final aesthetic result.

The Esthetic Reconstructive TRIAD: "GBR, GTR and Tissue Molding"
Implant dentistry in the esthetic zone is highly challenging. In recent years there are several studies, well defined approaches available on how to achieve pleasing outcomes. We must understand the biology of extraction sites and different treatment options for preserving or even reconstructing bony structures for predictable implant placement. This clinical and evidence based presentation will emphasize the importance of proper 3-dimensional implant placement, show different bone preservation techniques i.e P.E.T. (Partial Extraction Therapy) and how soft tissue grafting can effect the final end result. However we must admit that not only surgery but prosthetic skills have a major influence on our work. Implant placement must be determined with the prosthetic plan in mind! On the other hand abutment design, platform shifting concept as tissue molding “tools” and screw retained solutions will be high-lighted with lots of case presentations.

Critical Concepts in Implant and Gingival Surgery; Flap Designs, Suture Techniques and Soft Tissue Management
This presentation by the Troeltzsch Brothers features the fundamentals of surgical procedures in the oral cavity. Highlighted are the basic concepts we all must integrate into our daily clinical practice. A discussion of the essential anatomic guidelines as they relate to flap design options and indications are emphasized. Furthermore, material selection, sutures and techniques of wound closures are clearly addressed. Critical solutions to common surgical complications are also described. This lecture is intended for surgical beginners as well as experienced clinicians who want to update their surgical knowledge. These fundamentals are also very popular in the hands-on courses given by the Troeltzsch brothers.

Surgical Veneer Grafting Protocol: Step-by-Step Utilization in the Esthetic Zone
In the surgical part, it will be described the criteria necessary for successfully utilizing minimally invasive protocols within the esthetic zone and the possibility of placing or not placing a bone graft in the “gap” and the opportunity to use a connective tissue graft to overbuild the site bucco-lingually, performing the Surgical Veneer Grafting Protocol, idea'ed by the Agnini brothers. In the digital prosthetic part, the authors will analyze different cases, highlighting the operational differences that they have developed over time, with the increasing knowledge of new materials and daily advances in new software's.

Vertical or Shoulderless Preparations in Contemporary Prosthodontics Premium Member Content

Vertical or Shoulderless Preparations in Contemporary Prosthodontics
Tooth preparations without a defined finish line have been termed in several different ways, such as knife edge, feather edge, or shoulderless. From a biological standpoint, preserving a maximum amount of sound tooth structure, as it is done in vertical preparations, might also offer a more conservative alternative to a horizontal margin design in other clinical conditions such as endodontically treated teeth, vital teeth in young individual, teeth affected by caries at the cervical third. Vertical margins on zirconia crowns have been tested in vitro and clinical reports have been published. A re-evaluation of possible advantages and shortcomings of vertical preparation design in contemporary prosthodontics will be presented in light of recently published literature.

Soft Tissue Management and Functional Mock-Ups
Patients desiring a cosmetic smile improvement can present treatment planning challenges. An excessive display of gingiva resulting from a high lip line often complicates treatment planning and can compromise the final esthetic result. As we evaluate the patient, we often have to ask ourselves, do we “lower the river” (increase tooth length incisally), “raise the bridge” (increase tooth length gingivally) or use a combination of both approaches? This article addresses this issue using a methodological…

Changes in Soft Tissue Dimensions Following Three Different Techniques of Stage-Two Surgery: A Case Series Report
The aim of this case report is to compare the resilts of the increase in keratinized mucosa using three different techniques of stage-two surgery. Thirty-two patients with one to eight dental implants who received prosthetic rehabilitation of the maxilla were included. Patients were divided into three groups based on preoperative anatomical considerations. Stage-two surgery was performed using wither the apically repositioned flap, the roll flap, or an apically repositioned flap combined with a connective tissue graft.

Enhancing Esthetics with a Fixed Prosthesis Utilizing an Innovative Pontic Design and Periodontal Plastic Surgery

Enhancing Esthetics with a Fixed Prosthesis Utilizing an Innovative Pontic Design and Periodontal Plastic Surgery
During the past two decades, significant advancements with the integration of periodontal plastic surgery into esthetic restorative dental procedures have received increased attention. While ovate pontics have traditionally been used as a restorative design following augmentation procedures to enhance esthetics, an alternate E-pontic design aims to predictably support and maintain the gingival architecture between a single missing anterior tooth adjacent to a natural tooth or an implant that is in harmony with the lip line and face. In addition, the E-pontic design promotes the gingival facial tissue to coronally migrate over the pontic, creating a gingival sulcus. This article describes an innovative new technique and a pontic design that predictably will develop, support, and maintain the gingival architecture to provide a long-term esthetic and functional outcome.
