Crown Lengthening in Comprehensive Esthetic Therapy: The Complete Surgical Video A to Z

Description:
In this complete surgical video, Dr. David Wong performs an esthetic crown lengthening procedure to address a "gummy smile" as part of comprehensive therapy and smile enhancement. Dr. Wong will outline the indications for crown lengthening surgery as opposed to orthognathic correction. The surgical video will demonstrate the complete crown lengthening surgery, including incision design, flap management and instrumentation. In addition, suturing and post-operative care will also be outlined in detail.

Awesome presentation Dr Wong. 1 Are there chances of food impaction when you use only end cutting drill to reduce the bone. 2 what is the speed of the drill?

michael gelman - (2/12/2019 12:12 PM)

how long after the paintment can i wath the video? payment made.

Wassim Omari - (11/11/2018 4:07 PM)

nice presentation Dr.Wong . do you use periodontal dressing after the surgery ?and how long you leave it there ? thank you

How an Optragate would have made your life a lot easier

Thomas Devlin - (6/16/2018 5:47 PM)

Dr. Wong, could you include some information about the dental codes you would use and what you charge for this procedure? I kept thinking about

Dr. Terence YACOVITCH - (6/7/2018 4:18 PM)

Hard tissue laser better than high speed drill, laser would remove bone virtually bloodlessly and not damage root surface !

Dr. Terence YACOVITCH - (6/7/2018 4:14 PM)

Ivoclar's Optragate would also have clear field isolation and lip retraction.

Dr. Terence YACOVITCH - (6/7/2018 4:13 PM)

May we ask why diode laser not used? Cold steel = open wound and bleeding shown. Laser would clean "cut" with sealed, clean wound n'est pas?

Raymond La Vigne - (6/6/2018 10:08 PM)

sloppy technique poor assistant retraction lip protection and should have used large suction to prevent flooding face

CBCT as an Interdisciplinary Diagnostic and Treatment Planning Tool
The era of in-office Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) has unequivocally transformed interdisciplinary dentofacial therapy (IDT). While in-office CBCT imaging may be the latest technological breakthrough enhancing opportunities for treatment planning, it is diagnosis that has remained the constant variable critical for predictable patient outcomes.

Surgical Concepts to Treat Esthetic Implant Disaster Cases - Part 1 of 2 Premium Member Content

Surgical Concepts to Treat Esthetic Implant Disaster Cases - Part 1 of 2
The utilization of dental implants in the esthetic zone is a challenge for involved clinicians. With the increasing application of dental implants by non-experienced colleagues, the occurrence of esthetic failures with implant supported restorations is raising. This lecture will address the causes for such esthetic failures and the surgical approach for therapy. In most cases, implant removal is necessary, which must be done with a low-trauma technique to avoid additional bone loss. Today, this is done with special implant removal instruments using the Reverse Torque Technique. In addition, these failures are often characterized by a lack of keratinized mucosa. The current strategies for the reestablishment of keratinized mucosa and for the augmentation of missing bone, mainly on the facial aspects are presented and documented with case reports. This includes aspects of timing, surgical techniques, and the selection of appropriate biomaterials.

Socket Shield; What Do We Know, What´s New? Premium Member Content

Socket Shield; What Do We Know, What´s New?
The Socket Shield technique is a “new” procedure with 10 years of documented successful cases worldwide. Lately we have done some new proposals like the way we extract the lingual slice, the relation of the shield level to the bone, the use of miniflaps, the distance between implant and shield just to mention some. On the other hand, the only minor “problem” with this technique is the “external shield exposure” and here I propose the method of successful treatment. We will see the convenience of applying SS to molars also on the light of the paper of Dr. Mataraso from 2009. The molar SS is a viable alternative rather than ridge preservation techniques.

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.

Modern Crown Lengthening: Classification and Clinical Application Premium Member Content

Modern Crown Lengthening: Classification and Clinical Application
Crown lengthening procedures are indicated to provide adequate tooth structure in case of subgingival tooth fracture or caries, uneven gingival level, un-esthetic short crowns due to the tooth wear, inadequate axial height, altered passive eruption ,forced eruption of a single or multiple teeth and finally in case of gingival smile. The treatment modality for esthetic crown lengthening procedure should be based on detail diagnosis in each case because of the multifactorial etiology and because of the type of therapy selected by the clinician, will have a direct implication for the esthetic result.

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.

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…
