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

Revisiting the Papilla in 2016 - Part 2 of 2
In dental esthetics the regeneration of a compromised papilla , remains the most complex aspect of any reconstructive endeavor. The original 5mm Rule was found to exist only for a papilla bordered by 2 teeth and was expanded into a classification of 6 Types dependent on alternative adjacent support.e. implants or pontics.

Novel Surgical BioSealing & Original BioProfiling Techniques - Part 1 of 2
Biphosphonates Related Osteonecrosis of the Jaw is one of the tragedies affecting our patients each time more often representing a new challenge in what we like to call human dentistry. This severe and unpredictable outcome can evolve from something as simple as a tooth extraction or simply an implant placement. In this presentation the authors display one of the first BRONJ cases in the world treated with the surgical biosealing technique using the PRGF ENDORET graft. Understanding the BIOlogy behind the healing process has been as much surprising as useful in trying to alleviate our patients pain and improve their quality of life. This video presents a novel technique to the post-extraction site based upon taking care of the overall tissue support from the bone level and we will discuss treatment planning, options and limitations with this technique/protocol.

Connective Tissue and PRGF in Treatment of Periodontal Intrabony Defects Premium Member Content

Connective Tissue and PRGF in Treatment of Periodontal Intrabony Defects
In order to reconstruct the lost periodontal tissues different kinds of graft materials have been used, including auto-grafts, allografts and xenografts and also Polypeptide growth factors in combination with guided tissue regeneration (GTR).In this presentation Dr Omid Moghaddas will present the concepts of using connective tissue and PRGF in treatment of intrabony defects and also review the literature on this topic.

Current Concepts in Bioactivity and Regeneration
In this lecture, tips on how to deal with the different types of extraction socket, mostly infected, will be presented. The use of plasma rich in growth factors and the Endoret® (PRGF®) fibrin membrane is a key factor to enhance socket regeneration, post-operative recovery and minimize/treat complications.

Esthetic Management for Compromised Extraction Sites - Part 1 of 2 Premium Member Content

Esthetic Management for Compromised Extraction Sites - Part 1 of 2
Missing soft tissue is the main reason for compromised results in the aesthetic zone. But since the soft tissue has to be supported by a sufficient amount of bone, our focus has also to be on bone. Due to the fact that no bone-preservation technique (at the time of tooth extraction) available today, gives us the perfect result we need, augmentation procedures are still needed. Appropriate bone and soft tissue engineering in all three dimensions enhances the aesthetic performance of long-lasting restorations that blend in well and emerge from the periimplant sulcus in harmony with the neighboring teeth.

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.

Achieving Predictable Connective Tissue Root Coverage

Achieving Predictable Connective Tissue Root Coverage
Gingival recession creates esthetic issues. These issues may be corrected from a restorative perspective by the placement of composite resin or ceramic over the exposed root. But this approach often results in a gingival-incisal length that does not blend esthetically with the adjacent teeth. Often accompanying the gingival recession is a decrease in the band of attached gingiva. The wider the band of attached gingiva, the more stable the long-term result. Therefore, surgical correction of the recession…

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.
