Papilla Preservation and Regeneration in Reconstructive Therapy

Description:
In this lecture presentation, Dr. Thomas Han outlines the clinical decision making rational for choosing a specific surgical technique for diverse papilla regenerative challenges in the anterior region. Dr. Han utilizes the literature and clinical experience to discuss incision design, flap management and suturing techniques to emphasize the different options available to the clinician.

Questions & Comments

Tom; Dr. Han is retired from dentistry now and no longer manages his posts. Some answers for the board based on my own review, sutures 5.0 monofilament and horizontal mattress. This technique would not work well under an existing Pontic and there are better techniques for adjacent root coverage. Best with autologous grafts, less so with ADM. The tissue can be harvested from palate or Tuberosity. Anyone interested Ina hands-on course go to Live course area on DentalXP. Thnx Dr. Salama

where are the answers to the comments

please add a video; what is the suturing technique?thank you.

Leonard Smith934 - (8/9/2012 1:04 PM)

I would be interested in how you sutured the connective tissue in place as well as the suture technique to keep the elevated tissue in place.....horizontal mattress sutures?? Where,5-0,6-0?

Dr. Paul Sierra - (1/14/2012 12:10 AM)

Dr. Han, Would this technique also work to augment the ridge under a pontic as well as achieving root coverage of the adjacent natural teeth? Would it work with ADM? Thank you.

Great technique and results. Please comment on root preparation.

Nicolas Aronna - (10/22/2011 7:45 PM)

thanx doctor!

Sacha Wojtan - (9/13/2011 5:06 PM)

WOW! You make it look so easy. Would this approach also work in filling out a gap under a bridge-pontic? And do you take the CT graft from the palate?

Beautiful work :)

What Tissue Changes Can We Expect with Anterior Implant Therapy?
Minimizing soft tissue changes following anterior implant therapy is one of the holy grails in implant dentistry. Gingival recession will not only impact the patient’s esthetics, the difficulties in correcting such problem create further challenges to the clinicians. This presentation will focus on how much soft tissue changes can be expected following implant in the esthetic zone. Discussion will be made as to the etiology of gingival recession and what we can do to prevent it from happening.

Tissue Thickness, Cement & Platform Switching; The Science
Mucosal tissue thickness was shown to be the factor having impact on crestal bone stability. Even platform switching of the implant-abutment connection does not reduce crestal bone loss, if soft tissues at the implant placement are thin.

Prosthetic Soft Tissue Development From Single to Full Arch Reconstruction Premium Member Content

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.

Surgical Veneer Grafting Protocol: Step-by-Step Utilization in the Esthetic Zone
In the surgical part, it will be described the criteria necessary for successfully utilizing minimally invasive protocols within the esthetic zone and the possibility of placing or not placing a bone graft in the “gap” and the opportunity to use a connective tissue graft to overbuild the site bucco-lingually, performing the Surgical Veneer Grafting Protocol, idea'ed by the Agnini brothers. In the digital prosthetic part, the authors will analyze different cases, highlighting the operational differences that they have developed over time, with the increasing knowledge of new materials and daily advances in new software's.

Diagnosis, Planning, & Treatment of Altered Passive Eruption; From a Periodontists Perspective
This presentation will teach how to diagnose cases of altered passive eruption based on the radiographic evaluation (with peri-apical rx and CBCT) and how to plan and document a surgical procedure aimed to ‘uncover’ the beautiful and natural hidden enamel. In a world where esthetics is becoming more and more a concern a simple periodontal plastic surgical procedure can re-establish esthetic and balance to the patients affected by this condition.

Surgical & Restorative Management in the Aesthetic Zone
Very often anterior tissue and tooth deficiencies require a multi-disciplinary approach to correct. This presentation reviews several classic techniques in managing these challenging cases including; Orthodontic extrusion, soft tissue and hard tissue augmentation and restorative selection. A quantifiable strategy and case selection is presented as well as several options that should be considered.

Predictable Gingival Correction of Passive Eruption
While the need to maintain a dry operative field has traditionally caused complications during various soft tissue surgical procedures, the use of bipolar electrosurgical techniques can eliminate the need to maintain a dry field, thus increasing the clinician’s ability to deliver predictable, long-term results. This case presentation describes how to determine the presence of passive eruption, treatment plan its correction, and surgically alter the gingiva to provide a more aesthetic smile. This…
