Integrative Management of the Gummy Smile: Lip repositioning, Crown Lengthening & Restorative Nuances

Description:
The gingival smiles can be mild, moderate and severe , according to the degree of gingival exposure while smiling . Depending on the etiology of the problem , mild and moderate gummy smiles can be treated with moderate periodontal plastic surgery , however for severe , this procedure is not enough . Currently botox is used as alternative, but this is only a temporary treatment of very short effectiveness. That is why we suggest the technique of surgical repositioning of the upper lip as an effective and definitive alternative to solve this aesthetic problem. We present Marjorie´s case, a 20 years old girl with a severe gummy smile , the patient presents her facial thirds well proportioned so a skeletal problem is discarded. We planned and performed surgery surgical repositioning of upper lip , followed , after three weeks of periodontal plastic surgery on ten of her upper pieces from second to second premolar. After two weeks impression was taken to process ten veneers . We also present part of the elaboration process of the veneers by our laboratory

The Critical “Pink” Interface in Esthetic Dentistry—A Cross-Disciplinary Approach: Options, Limitations, and Solutions
This program is a perspective into how cross- disciplinary interface planning has become and integral part of clinical esthetic dentistry, in particular implant diagnostics. Today it is essential to combine “white” tooth esthetics with “pink” gingival aspects. Understanding the individual prosthetic, surgical, and biologic limitations is part of innovative treatment-planning protocols developed in an approach to provide, simplify, and expedite minimally invasive limited therapy. Preemptive CBCT and 3D CAD/CAM planning of soft and hard tissue procedures, implant placement, ridge reduction, and restorative design now utilize new innovative protocols for the entire restoration from top to bottom - implant, abutment, and restoration - and the interfaces in between.

Socket -Shielded Implant for Externally Resorbing Canine Premium Member Content

Socket -Shielded Implant for Externally Resorbing Canine
This 50yr.+ female showed external/internal resorption of tooth #11. Socket Shield technique was used saving the facial and interproximal of the tooth. Remainder of tooth was removed by vertically sectioning the tooth with surgical burs in 45 degree high-speed handpiece. Implant placed was a 4.6 x 15mm Tapered Plus Biohorizon implant. Mineross was mixed with saved bone and placed in gap areas. An Emax bonded Maryland bridge was then bonded to adjacent teeth for a temporary replacement. The implant, healing collar and graft were covered with PRF. Nine day post op is shown. This case will be closely followed and posted on XP.

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.
