Fibrin Assisted Soft Tissue Promotion (FASTP)

Description:
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.

Thanks for the wonderful presentation...when is the most appropriate time to remove the suture? And whenjoy to say it's enough volume of APRF during surgery?

Alina, Thank you for the presentation. This presentation is not in my strong suit as to the number of and type of materials that can be obtained from a phlebotomy of a human vein. However, my research in graduated school was under the scrutiny of Dr. Charles Cobb in cellular biology. I have some questions and observations. 1. When slides are shown and you state that the is more volume of new biotype and more keratinized tissue is observed. I'm not sure that I agree that the biotype has changed because biotype is a genetic determination. I agree that the tissue volume is greater but biotype remains the same. In the same slides I see root coverage that is a combination of the marginal keratinized tissue that was coronally repositioned but I don't see and an increase in attached keratinized tissue or the zone of attached keratinized tissue. What I see is thicker tissue and root coverage which is our desired outcome but I don't think we can say that the APRF or IPRF in combination stimulated an increase in keratocytes because in my opinion without histology we cannot make those claims. I have had the some discussion with Pat Allen on his technique with alloderm. According to him it is not necessary to have keratinized attached gingiva on the superficial layer of the gingiva. 2. My objective in mucogingival surgery has been to first increase the zone of keratinized gingiva and in some cases to cover the exposed root surface based on the initial Miller Classification. What I think is interesting is that Danny Melker from Florida has always contended that a visible mucogingival recession is always associated with a underlying defect in the bone that is usually more "hidden" recession. In most of the cases you showed, the root of the teeth was in significant buccal version relative to the alveolar housing. Many of the cases I see the teeth were naturally in buccal version or were positioned there as a result of an orthodontic outcome. 3. The reason I bring this up is that I have seen many many of Danny Melker's connective tissue grafts from the palate and the tuberosity. He seems to be able always obtain a volume of autogenous tissue to graft multiple sites intra-oral. He uses no biologic modifiers or growth factors in his procedures. My observation on most of his cases is that the volume of the gingiva is thick and he is very good at obtaining root coverages. To my knowledge, he also has not show biopsy specimens. The gold standard to determine the biology outcome and anatomical tissues is a biopsy or block section to observe the tissue at hand. Is there new attachment to the previously exposed root and what is or are the tissues that are attaching--bone, PDL, and new cementum or is there some form of epithelial attachment-short of long. Is there more keratination of the tissue and what percentage is attached to the bone or root or both. This may be a mute point when the root is covered but there is no way to scientifically claim what has occurred without the biopsy. I don't care is the tissue coverage was with autogenous, allograft, blood products, or just coronolly repositioned. I hope my comments stimulate some thought and maybe more literature is available to support your conclusions that I am unaware of at this time.

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.

Treating the Terminal Dentition: A Patient-Center Approach
In patients with terminal dentition esthetic and functional replacement is a necessary objective, but no longer a sufficient-objective: nowadays, due to the clinical and extra clinical characteristics of these patients, management of the therapy is as important as its conclusion. Respect of the principle of autonomy, reduction of treatment length, simplification of surgical procedures and prosthetic management of implant immediate loading are the cornerstones of this philosophy and are the object of this lecture.

Partial Extraction Therapies: From Failure to Everyday Practice - Part 1 of 4 Premium Member Content

Partial Extraction Therapies: From Failure to Everyday Practice - Part 1 of 4
Tooth extraction is usually followed by the resorption of support tissues that may compromise the aesthetic and functional prognosis of the final rehabilitation. There have been numerous publications suggesting Partial Extraction Therapies contribute to the maintenance of the alveolar ridge dimensions. These techniques consist in intentionally preserving a buccal root fragment in order to avoid tearing the periodontal ligament and loosing the bundle bone, which leads to bone resorption. It has been reported that these are very sensitive techniques and may lead to some complications. In order to avoid these complications, the dental surgeon must know which cases can be treated with Partial Extraction Therapies and how to correctly perform them. In these presentations we will show what are the indications and contraindications, how to perform these techniques, the literature that sustains it, how can we benefit from digital technology to today's world, etc.

A Decade of the Socket-Shield Technique: A Step-by-Step Partial Extraction Therapy Protocol

A Decade of the Socket-Shield Technique: A Step-by-Step Partial Extraction Therapy Protocol
Ten years have passed since Hürzeler and coworkers first introduced the socket-shield technique. Much has developed and evolved with regard to partial extraction therapy, a collective concept of utilizing the patient’s own tooth root to preserve the periodontium and peri-implant tissue. The specifications, steps, instrumentation, and procedures discussed in this article are the result of extensive experience in refining the socket-shield technique as we know it today. A repeatable, predictable protocol is requisite to providing tooth replacement in esthetic dentistry. Moreover, a standardized protocol provides a better framework for clinicians to report data relating to the technique with procedural consistency. This article aims to illustrate a reproducible, step-by-step protocol for the socket- shield technique at immediate implant placement and provisionalization for single-rooted teeth.

Does residual cement around implant-supported restorations cause peri-implant disease? A retrospective case analysis
The purpose of this study was to determine the relationship between patients with a history of periodontitis and development of cement-related peri-implant disease. Seventy-seven patients with 129 implants for this retrospective analysis were selected from completed implant cases that were scheduled for regular maintenance or had experienced mechanical or biological complications between years 2006 and 2011 in private practice. Implants with extracoronal residual cement and implants without cement remnants were analyzed.
