Keys to Successful Implants within the Esthetic Zone - Part 1 of 2

Description:
In this first of a two part presentation, Dr. Michael Sonick outlines the keys to successfully placing implants in the anterior region. This section emphasizes the need for precise treatment planning so that proper 3-dimensional implant positioning can be achieved. A detailed understanding of the mesial-distal, buccal-palatal and incisal-apical surgical positioning of dental implants will be explored.

Questions & Comments

I agree with Dr Salama. The papilla sparing incision is one that I do not use very frequently for it leads to papilla compromise via a loss of blood supply as well as scaring as Maurice pointed out. The key for papilla is the bone. If you have the bone and the contact point is in the correct place you will have the papilla. Mike Sonick

Simon; Unsure about Dr. Sonick's response but I personally do not like the "papilla saving" incision. I feel it is over utilized and often restricts blood supply to the flap and forces the surgeon to graft and place the membrane over the incision line. It often causes scar formation which could be a negative in the esthetic zone. Dr. Salama

Dr Sonick,why you do not recommend papilla saving incision?I have attended a course focusing on soft tissue management recently and the lecturer who was a periodontist was actually recommending this type of flap design.

Jeffrey,

This presentation focussed on the needed biologic concepts in order to idealize the placement of implants. I specifically utilized long term follow up in order to demonstrate long term follow up and to demonstrate the longevity of the results when biologic principles are followed.

Today - many of us are focused on the "new and improved". Fact is biology has not changed in the last 30 years. I learned from many of my teachers, Tarnow, Garber,Abrams, Kramer, and many others that as long as biologic prinicples are followed, success will usually occur.

I graft with Connective Tissue when i want to augment the soft tissue. In this presentation, my attempt was to try and use Guided Gingival Growth to enhance soft tissue without having to do a connective tissue graft.

Today, I frequently graft with bone e.g. BioOss and a membrane at the time of initial implant surgery in order to increase the volume buccally. This is called a contour graft and has been described by Danny Buser.

I hope that helps. Connective Tissue Grafting can be done at any of the following times:

1. prior to implant placement
2. At the time of implant placement
3. At the time of second stage surgery
4. Post second stage surgery

Personally, I prefer 3. at the time of second stage surgery if CTG is to be done.

Hope that helps.

Dr. Salama;
I disagree, the images and cases did not appear to support some of the concepts offered. I have seen Dr. Sonick lecture and enjoy his videos on XP but the comments made were fair in this case.
Sam

Maurice Salama - (11/19/2010 9:22 PM)

Jeffrey; It appears to be a lecture aimed at concepts and perhaps not as much a review of current surgical techniques.

Prosthetic Soft Tissue Development From Single to Full Arch Reconstruction
In addition to surgical intervention is the creation of the specific emergence profile that is essential in the aesthetic zone. The emergence profile composed of 2 parts, the abutment and the subgingival part of the crown. The shape of abutment can be individually shaped so that it gives natural appearance and varies individually (depending on the depth, angulation and diameter of the implant). Sometimes it even dictates the implant position. From a surgical perspective, soft tissue height, position and thickness need to be diagnosed and corrected when needed. From the prosthetic point of view, the emergence profile has to be created to mimic the natural appearance and maintained over time in respect to the biological changes. The course teaches step by step how to be successful with implant prosthetics from single tooth, partially edentulous to full arch reconstruction.

Pure Dental Esthetics – From Titanium to Zirconia
The replacement of a single tooth with dental implants, especially when the patient has a high smile line, has been an esthetic challenge in implant dentistry. Typically, it requires very careful stages to create the final restoration as natural as possible. When there is loss of soft tissues, carefully made dental-gingival prosthesis becomes an alternative of therapy. For all cases with high smile line, achieving perfection in color and texture of the restoration it's not an easy task. Currently there are some ways to achieve better aesthetic results, including digital scanning of colors. This presentation describes step-by-step the application of a protocol developed in our clinic. Several cases will be discussed. In addition, recent technologies such as zirconium implants are also be discussed.

Challenges & Management of Peri-Implant Pink Esthetics in Anterior Implant Therapy Premium Member Content

Challenges & Management of Peri-Implant Pink Esthetics in Anterior Implant Therapy
When considering implant therapy in the esthetic zone, replicating the natural soft tissue frame may present challenges for the treating clinician. A harmonious gingival form and architecture are not only fundamental for achieving adequate peri-implant pink esthetics, but also for simulating a natural emergence for the future restoration. This presentation will highlight different clinical scenarios in which the lack of hard and soft tissue volume may pose difficulties in achieving ideal peri-implant esthetics, in addition to available clinical strategies on how to manage and minimize hard and soft tissue deficiencies when dealing with implant therapy in the esthetic zone.

Subclassification and Clinical Management of Extraction Sockets with Labial Dentoalveolar Dehiscence Defects
Immediate implant therapy involving implants placed into intact Type 1 extraction sockets has become a consistent clinical technique. The classification of Type 2 extraction sockets, where the mucosal tissues are present but there is a midfacial osseous dehiscence defect, has been described according to the extent of the buccal bone plate absence. The literature has offered different techniques in the treatment of Type 2 sockets; however, the extent of the defect has never been defined or delineated.
