The Evolving Role of Soft Tissue Enhancement in Esthetic Reconstructive Dentistry

Description:
Soft tissue grafting techniques, new regenerative materials and bioactivators will be highlighted. The expanding role of allograft materials (Perioderm), platelet rich in growth factors (PRGF, PRF), and when to utilize them will be suggested. The ability of these combined protocols to alter the soft tissue profile around natural teeth, implants, and dentulous ridges, will be reviewed as to its critical role in "Complete Esthetics".

That before and after at the end is amazing!

GREAT WORK> I HAD ONE QUESTION ABOUT THE FIRST CASE WITH ROOT SUBMERGENCE HOW KIND OF TEMPORARY DID YOU USE FOR THE PATIENT TILL SECOND SURGERY & IF U USED A FIXED BRIDGE ON PREMOLARS OF REMAING DENTITION DIDNT YOU FIND THAT THEY EXERT SOME PRESSURE ON THE ANTERIOR AREA WHILE PATIENT IS IN FUNCTION?

Carlos Sánchez - (5/14/2014 6:12 PM)

excellent Dr... Thanks...

Barry; Yes. I always use the thick ACDM materials. Regards Dr. Salama

Thanks lb Schwab for your comment. I will try better next time. Dr. Salama

Maurice Salama - (5/14/2014 5:47 PM)

Chris & Raymond; There have been studies that show long term maintenance of root coverage without additional bone grafting and this attachment is histologically connective tissue attachment into cementum. Thanks for your posts. Dr. Salama

Than you for the informative webinar.

Arshad Hasan - (5/14/2014 2:29 PM)

excellent presentation. Thanks

Raymond La Vigne - (5/14/2014 2:07 PM)

Has anyone done long term studies of success for soft tissue grafting in consideration that recessed bone is not being replaced

Emerging Perspectives in Soft Tissue Augmentation: Evolving Tools, Techniques & Materials
Soft tissue root coverage microsurgery and pontic site enhancement are frequently utilized periodontal plastic surgery techniques to create an ideal restorative frame for teeth, pontics and implants. Tunnel, Semilunar, VISTA etc. are among the new age techniques highlighted in this growing area of periodontal microsurgery. New autologous tissue harvest techniques, Allograft ACDM and Bioactive Modifiers have all changed the way we are capable of managing soft tissue deficiencies and have assisted the clinician in improving the healing qualities of these minimally invasive techniques. This lecture will cover site preparation techniques for conventional dentistry as well as prior to and after implant placement.

Big Picture Planning: A Comprehensive Surgical and Prosthetic Workflow
This seminar will highlight interdisciplinary aspects of treatment to achieve optimum outcomes in challenging cases. The cases presented range from single tooth replacement in the esthetic zone to full-arch rehabilitation and reconstruction of composite defects with restorative and surgical modalities. Emphasis will be placed on meeting and exceeding patient needs and working as a team in an everyday private practice setting. Surgical modalities presented will include creation of optimum hard and soft tissue architecture as well as peri-implant tissue modification procedures prior, during and after implantation. Diagnostic considerations for prosthetic rehabilitation of failing dentition and composite defects will also be discussed through case presentations.

What Tissue Changes Can We Expect with Anterior Implant Therapy? Premium Member Content

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.

From Extraction to Prosthetic Restoration: Considerations for the Esthetic Zone
This webinar will highlight surgical and restorative techniques to accomplish predictable outcomes in the esthetic zone with implant therapy. Treatment modalities will be demonstrated with high quality photography and case series discussion. Surgical modalities presented will include ridge preservation, the current evidence on the use of growth factors such as PRP and hr-PDGF bb. Also timing of implant placement as well as soft and hard tissue augmentation will be discussed. Special emphasis will be placed on immediate provisionalization of implants to accomplish optimal peri-implant mucosa architecture. Techniques to transfer provisional emergence profile to the final restoration will be presented.

Combination Therapies in the Esthetic Zone: Steps for Success
This presentation will cover the critical aspects to consider for deciding the sequence and implementation of combination therapies. Successful esthetic zone treatment must begin with a well thought-out space management plan. This plan involves a three dimensional adjustment of the periodontal attachment, with a possibility of root submergence and partial extraction technique. Following this, a decision is made concerning the timing and position of implant placement, and an adequate hard tissue foundation can be restored using GBR with titanium mesh and collagen membrane. On top of this base a more efficient soft tissue augmentation and adjustment completes the requirements for success in the esthetic zone.

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.

Developing Optimal Peri-Implant Papillae within the Esthetic Zone: Guided Soft Tissue Augmentation
Osseointegrated dental implants have enjoyed longterm success in the rehabilitation of totally edentulous patients. Every aspect of traditional treatment planning protocols continues to be re-evaluated and updated to better incorporate the benefits of osseointegration into clinical practice. This is particularly evident as dentistry has committed to fully integrating this approach into the more varied and demanding environment of the partially edentulous patient.
