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?

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

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.

excellent presentation. Thanks

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

The Science Behind the Papillae - Part 1 of 2
In 1992, Tarnow’s study on the effect of the distance from the contact point to the crestal bone on the presence of interproximal dental papilla gave us a new and ground breaking insight into the management of pink aesthetics. Later Team Atlanta furthered that study, analyzing the different measures between teeth, implants and pontics, giving us an even deeper understanding of how bone height influences in papilla growth. In my understanding, this study was one of the most important in the history of dentistry due to its true crossover between dental surgery and the prosthodontic field, combining aesthetics, oral rehabilitation and oral surgery in treatment planning. Never has interdisciplinary dentistry been more valued. This lecture will go over past and present techniques that can be performed to achieve an optimal aesthetic outcome in the managing of soft tissue.

"The Great Debate" on Tooth Replacement Premium Member Content

"The Great Debate" on Tooth Replacement
Bucco-palatal collapse of the post-extraction ridge is a significant challenge in restorative and implant dentistry. A variety of different approaches as well as ridge preservation techniques using tissue and augmentative materials have been proposed in this session with some of the leading clinical research teams in the field. A conceptual debate format discussing the virtues of "Early Placement" at 6 weeks (Buser & Belser Team) vs. "Immediate Placement with Dual Zone Protocols" at time of extraction (Chu & Tarnow Team) vs. "Partial Extraction Therapy" PET (Gluckman & Salama) also at the time of extraction is led by Professor Homa Zadeh of USC. This interactive session explores the current status and poses questions for the future use and indications of each proposed therapy.

Demystify The Gingival Restorative Interface in Oral Rehabilitation Premium Member Content

Demystify The Gingival Restorative Interface in Oral Rehabilitation
Pink esthetic therapy often can encompass single and multiple tooth loss clinical scenarios. The decision-making process of when and how to use interdisciplinary therapy to address a failing single tooth as well as loss of attachment around teeth adjacent to the natural dentition, an implant, or an edentulous ridge can be daunting. A presentation of existing pink determinants that define esthetic outcomes will be outlined in addition to the use of single tooth implants, orthodontic extrusion, and pink ceramics in therapy.

Emerging Perspectives in Soft Tissue Augmentation: Evolving Tools, Techniques & Materials Premium Member Content

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.

Fibrin Assisted Soft Tissue Promotion (FASTP) - A New Perspective in Periodontal Plastic Surgery
Soft tissue recession around teeth and implants is an epidemic problem in the field of dentistry. A predictable and long-term soft tissue augmentation outcome is primarily dependent on proper diagnosis, prognosis and treatment planning. Harvesting limitations of autogenous tissue from the palate represent a true challenge when treating patients with multiple recessions or gingival deformities around teeth and dental implants. The Advanced Platelet Rich Fibrin (APRF) and injectable platelet-rich fibrin (iPRF) are promising tissue promoters that can be a suitable alternative option.

The Dual Zone Approach to Tooth Replacement in the Esthetic Zone Premium Member Content

The Dual Zone Approach to Tooth Replacement in the Esthetic Zone
Improvements in implant designs have helped advance successful immediate anterior implant placement into fresh extraction sockets. Clinical techniques described in this presentation will enable practitioners to achieve predictable esthetic success using a method that limits the amount of buccal contour change of the extraction site ridge and potentially enhances the thickness of the peri-implant soft tissues coronal to the implant-abutment interface. This approach involves atraumatic tooth removal without flap elevation, and placing a bone graft into the residual gap around an immediate fresh-socket anterior implant with a screw-retained provisional restoration acting as a prosthetic socket seal device. Long term follow up and evidence from scientific literature to support this concept will be described.

Soft Tissue Management and Functional Mock-Ups

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…

The Socket-Shield Technique to Support the Buccofacial Tissues at Immediate Implant Placement

The Socket-Shield Technique to Support the Buccofacial Tissues at Immediate Implant Placement
Tooth loss and subsequent ridge collapse continue to burden restorative implant treatment. Careful management of the post-extraction tissues is needed to preserve the alveolar ridge. In-lieu of surgical augmentation to correct a ridge defect, the socket-shield technique offers a promising solution. As the root submergence technique retains the periodontal attachment and maintains the alveolar ridge for pontic site development, this case report demonstrates the hypothesis that retention of a prepared tooth root section as a socket-shield prevents the recession of tissues buccofacial to an immediately placed implant. The socket-shield technique is a highly promising addition to clinical implant dentistry and this case report is among the first to demonstrate the procedure in clinical practice with a 1-year follow up.
