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

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

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

Combination Therapy for Soft Tissue Grafting Procedures
Realization of predictable outcomes with shape, shade and unique characteristics of dental restorations has proven to be attainable and maintainable due to the static nature of a carefully prepared foundation and the overlying superstructures. On the other hand, the supporting soft tissue frame, which in turn is controlled by the three-dimensional anatomical characteristics of its surrounding environment, is further complicated by an inherent dynamic nature that is also dependent on a host of biological factors for long-term maintenance of ideal surgical outcomes. Realities and facts vs. hype will be discussed in this presentation based on a review of clinical results achieved and maintained utilizing combined soft tissue grafting approaches with up to 22 years of post-operative follow-up.

Developing White and Pink Esthetics through Reconstructive Surgery
This lecture/video presentation describes the comprehensive treatment of a case in which we needed to reconstruct the hard and the soft tissue after the extraction of a central incisor. The video demonstrates on of several possible surgical procedures for the reconstruction of tissue defects within the esthetic zone. Specifically, a non-resorbable membrane was utilized and combined with a modification of the pedicle connective tissue graft at the same time of the extraction.

A Novel Surgical-Prosthetic Approach to Optimize Peri-Implant Tissue Esthetics Premium Member Content

A Novel Surgical-Prosthetic Approach to Optimize Peri-Implant Tissue Esthetics
The achievement of an aesthetic implant-supported restoration is a constant challenge to the restorative dentist. Due to the circular shape of the implant and its smaller diameter, when compared to the root of a natural tooth, a dilemma inevitably occurs of how to construct an artificial crown that will imitate the natural tooth crown form. The appearance of the surrounding soft tissue is of major importance, and various techniques have been developed to guide its topography. The Marginal Migration Concept is a technique that helps the clinician in order to achieve a long-term predictable outcome in the Aesthetic zone by enhancing the surrounding tissues. The lecture will show step-by-step clinical procedures from diagnostic models through surgery with immediate provisional restoration therapy to the definitive restorations.

Zero Bone Loss Protocol: Influence of Vertical Soft Tissue Thickness on Crestal Bone Stability Premium Member Content

Zero Bone Loss Protocol: Influence of Vertical Soft Tissue Thickness on Crestal Bone Stability
Crestal bone stability is considered to be important for bone preservation, longevity of implants and to prevent peri-implant tissue recession. Implant placement level is important for bone stability. Mucosal tissue thickness was shown to be the factor having impact on bone stability. It was showed that platform switching does not reduce crestal bone loss, if soft tissues at the implant placement are thin. It is suggested that thin tissues might be thickened during implant placement, thus reducing bone resorbtion. The role of soft tissue thickness is well established in aesthetic treatment. It is known that thin soft tissues present an unfavorable situation for implant placement, crestal bone stability and subsequent prosthetic treatment.

Non-Surgical Periodontal Therapy: Decision Making in the 21st Century Premium Member Content

Non-Surgical Periodontal Therapy: Decision Making in the 21st Century
Non-surgical periodontal therapy is a vital part of everyday dental practice. Since the majority of periodontal therapy is performed by general dentists and dental hygienists, it is critical that clinicians have all of the requisite skills and information needed to perform these services at the highest level possible. The purpose of this presentation is to provide the latest evidence- and practice- based information on periodontal debridement and adjunctive therapies that can improve patient outcomes. Though surgical procedures may still need to be performed in some sites, the majority of inflammatory periodontal disease can be eliminated or reduced significantly using the techniques and protocols discussed in this educational segment on non-surgical periodontal therapy.

Ridge Preservation with Modified “Socket-Shield” Technique: A Methodological Case Series

Ridge Preservation with Modified “Socket-Shield” Technique: A Methodological Case Series
After tooth extraction, the alveolar bone undergoes a remodeling process, which leads to horizontal and vertical bone loss. These resorption processes complicate dental rehabilitation, particularly in connection with implants. Various methods of guided bone regeneration (GBR) have been described to retain the original dimension of the bone after extraction. Most procedures use filler materials and membranes to support the buccal plate and soft tissue, to stabilize the coagulum and to prevent epithelial ingrowth.

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.
