Maximizing Esthetics with Minimally Invasive Surgery Around Implants

Description:
Soft tissue deficiencies around implants impact esthetics and often lead to escalating problems. Early recognition and intervention with minimally invasive soft tissue surgery reduces the risk of undesirable sequellae associated with conventional surgical approaches around implants. The application of a minimally invasive soft tissue grafting method will be shown for treatment of soft tissue problems around implants and the indications for use of this technique will be outlined.

I enjoyed your excellent and informative presentation. Thank you for sharing.

Maurice Salama - (11/27/2014 11:27 AM)

If you perform implants in the Esthetic Zone this is a MUST lecture to see the Soft Tissue implications and how to manage them. Dr. Salama

Simply I have enjoyed every second of this great presentation, thank u very much and thank u dentalxp

C Eduardo Gonzalez - (8/26/2013 4:01 AM)

Dr. Allen Would you please share your implant surface decontamination procedure? How do you achieve it if with your minimally invasive procedures you don't raise flaps but rather work with tunnels? Thank you for your great presentation.

Great Lecture Dr. Allen. I really did appreciate the challenges and technical aspects of soft tissue augmentation in defect environments. Do you add any "growth factors" to your Alloderm? thanks Band

Maurice Salama - (8/2/2013 10:20 PM)

Pat; Great job. With implants, would you ever utilize autogenous tissue over Alloderm? What is your criteria? thanks as always Maurice

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.

Combination Therapies in the Esthetic Zone: Steps for Success
This presentation will cover the critical aspects to consider for deciding the sequence and implementation of combination therapies. Successful esthetic zone treatment must begin with a well thought-out space management plan. This plan involves a three dimensional adjustment of the periodontal attachment, with a possibility of root submergence and partial extraction technique. Following this, a decision is made concerning the timing and position of implant placement, and an adequate hard tissue foundation can be restored using GBR with titanium mesh and collagen membrane. On top of this base a more efficient soft tissue augmentation and adjustment completes the requirements for success in the esthetic zone.

Patients desiring a cosmetic smile improvement can present challenges to the dentist when treatment planning. An excessive display of gingiva due to a high lip line often complicates treatment planning and can compromise the final esthetic result when proper planning is not considered prior to finalizing the case. We often have to ask ourselves as we evaluate the patient, do we “lower the river” (increase tooth length incisally), “raise the bridge” (increase tooth length gingivally) or a combination…

Soft Tissue Procedures Related to Dental Implant Surgery
Clinicians often encounter an insufficient amount of keratinized soft tissue in the proposed implant site. When this occurs, the question arises: Should the necessary softtissue manipulation be performed before, during, or after placement of the implant? There are three answers or scenarios for this question, according to Lee Silverstein, DDS, associate professor at the Medical College of Georgia in Augusta.

Esthetic Correction of Gingival Recession Using a Modified Tunnel Technique and an Acellular Dermal Connective Tissue Allograft

Esthetic Correction of Gingival Recession Using a Modified Tunnel Technique and an Acellular Dermal Connective Tissue Allograft
Esthetic correction of gingival recession is an important goal of periodontal therapy. This article describes a surgical technique that combines a modified tunnel technique and an acellular dermal connective tissue allograft. With the aid of vertical incisions, a tunnel is created under the buccal mucosa of the affected tooth. These incisions enable easy access for graft placement and create mobility for gingival coronal positioning. The use of an accelular dermal connective tissue allograft eliminates the need for a surgical palatal donor site. This minimizes post-surgical complications.
