Restoration of Optimal Esthetics in Complex Clinical Situations

Description:
Patients often neglect or delay dental care for an extended time because of their negative experiences with and fear of dental treatments. This neglect may result in the advance of periodontitis with severe bone loss, a substantial number of missing teeth, and problems with the remaining teeth. Preexisting malocclusion can aggravate this condition. This case report demonstrates an interdisciplinary strategic approach, in combination with the use of biologically grounded, clinically proven, and viable techniques and technologies to restore optimal esthetics and function in such complex cases. The authors emphasize the importance of carefully planning the timing and sequence of performing periodontal, orthodontic, and implant therapies. The advanced techniques and technologies successfully implemented in this case report include the growth factor and titanium mesh (Ti mesh)-assisted bone augmentation; ovate pontic-mediated, noninvasive soft tissue contouring; and photofunctionalization of dental implants.

amazing presentation.

rocco mele - (9/3/2014 4:18 PM)

Dr. Ishikawa Thanks for the information and the website Rocco

Tomohiro Ishikawa - (9/2/2014 8:11 AM)

Dr Rosembalaum, Important points are flap design, releasing incision, and suture.

Tomohiro Ishikawa - (9/2/2014 8:06 AM)

Dr. Mele. Thank you for your question. We use photofunctionalization immediately before placing implants. I do not think that regular curing ultraviolet light would have the same positive benefits. Please check this website. www.photofunc-implant.org

Tomohiro Ishikawa - (9/2/2014 7:47 AM)

Dr Bayati, In the future, I will try to include a more detailed explanation in my videos.

Tomohiro Ishikawa - (9/2/2014 7:44 AM)

Dr Goldstein, Thank you for your comment. We usually use Noritake porcelain.

Dr Ruiz and Dr Vicioso, Thank you very much for your compliments.

Laurent Rosemblaum - (8/26/2014 12:02 PM)

Incredible results.thank you for sharing. The 2 problems that I encountered with T mesh was the tearing of the tissue that happen quite often,and the difficulty to remove it.Do you have any tip about these two issues. Thank you.

rocco mele - (8/25/2014 6:53 PM)

Ohayou gozaimasu Dr Ishikawa: Loved the presentation. Please tell me about photofunctionalization of implants. Do you hit the implant with ultraviolet light before seating the implant. Or is it treated with light before packaging How about exposing the implant to a regular curing ultraviolet before placing. I may be a little naive but my research leaves me more confused. Could you fill in the blanks Rocco Mele DVM eastpointpetclinic.com

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 periapical 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.

From Extraction to Prosthetic Restoration: Considerations for the Esthetic Zone Premium Member Content

From Extraction to Prosthetic Restoration: Considerations for the Esthetic Zone
This webinar will highlight surgical and restorative techniques to accomplish predictable outcomes in the esthetic zone with implant therapy. Treatment modalities will be demonstrated with high quality photography and case series discussion. Surgical modalities presented will include ridge preservation, the current evidence on the use of growth factors such as PRP and hr-PDGF bb. Also timing of implant placement as well as soft and hard tissue augmentation will be discussed. Special emphasis will be placed on immediate provisionalization of implants to accomplish optimal peri-implant mucosa architecture. Techniques to transfer provisional emergence profile to the final restoration will be presented.

Advanced Immediate Implant Placement Strategies Including the Socket Shield (SS) Technique and its Complications Premium Member Content

Advanced Immediate Implant Placement Strategies Including the Socket Shield (SS) Technique and its Complications
Immediate implant placement in the aesthetic zone has become a controversial topic with regards to the long term aesthetic demands that both the profession and our patients have placed on this treatment modality. Since the controversy broke a few years ago there have been a number of outstanding developments that have revolutionized the way we do immediate implant placement. Soft tissue augmentations using the tunnel technique as well as the socket whiled technique are 2 of these techniques which form the baseline of treatment in our clinic. This lecture will go through all the updated protocols of immediate implant placement supported by the literature as well as deal specifically with the finer details of the socket whiled technique including step by step photos and video of the technique. More importantly it will cover numerous complications that we have had to deal with over the last few years that we have been doing this technique.

Managing the Extraction Site - Optimal Preservation and Enhancement Techniques Premium Member Content

Managing the Extraction Site - Optimal Preservation and Enhancement Techniques
There is rarely a day that clinicians do not have to deal with an extraction site. If implant therapy is a consideration, then bone and soft tissue quantity and quality must be factored into treatment options. The ideal opportunity for bone preservation exists at the time of tooth extraction. All too often this opportunity is lost. Extraction techniques will be demonstrated that not only preserve but augment the amount of alveolar bone. The importance of piezosurgery, atraumatic surgical technique, the use of bone grafts, resorbable membranes and growth factors will be elucidated along with soft tissue enhancement.

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.

Surgical Crown Lengthening in a Population With Human Immunodeficiency Virus: A Retrospective Analysis

Surgical Crown Lengthening in a Population With Human Immunodeficiency Virus: A Retrospective Analysis
This report investigates the outcome of CLS procedures performed at an urban dental school in a population of individuals with HIV. Specifically, this retrospective clinical analysis evaluates the healing response after crown lengthening surgery (CLS). Of the 21 patients with HIV examined after CLS, none had postoperative complications, such as delayed healing, infection, or prolonged bleeding. Variations in viral load, CD4 cell count, smoking, platelets, and neutrophils did not impact surgical healing. In addition, variations in medication regimens (highly active anti-retroviral therapy; on pro-tease inhibitors; no medications had an impact. The results of this retrospective analysis show the absence of postoperative complications after CLS in this population with HIV. Additional investigation into this area will help health care practitioners increase the range of surgical services provided to this group of patients.
