S.M.A.R.T. Minimally Invasive Bone Grafting

Description:
Introduction to the S.M.A.R.T. TM Minimally Invasive Bone Grafting Technique is a novel minimally invasive bone grafting technique developed by Dr. Ernesto Lee. It provides superior outcomes with less pain, less swelling and fewer complications than traditional bone grafting procedures. Only a small incision is required, with no flap elevation, no tenting screws and no membranes. Complex, high-risk scenarios can now be treated with minimal risk of complications. The S.M.A.R.T. TM method represents a disruptive technology that will dramatically impact the future of bone grafting

Thinking out of the box is always attractive! What if you place the graft without any growth factors? Or maybe mixing xeno with allograft or autologeous bone.Thank you for the inspired presentation.

Michael Maroon - (8/3/2018 7:20 PM)

Excellent presentation and descriptions. Thank you.

Ernesto Lee - (7/31/2018 7:42 AM)

In answer to the growth factor question, the original study and most of my cases have been performed with PDGF. We have however, groups working in areas of the world where PDGF is not available. There is clinical evidence that Emdogain will work, and anectotal evidence that L-PRF may work as well. Regards.

Thank you all for your kind comments and sorry for the delayed response. I just recently became aware that this was featured on Dental XP.

Thanks for the excellent presentation, Dr. Lee. What growth factors are you mixing with Bio-Oss? What exactly is your graft mixture made up of?

Outstanding presentation, Ernesto! I really enjoyed this. Thank you for sharing your knowledge.

Just simply phenomenal Dr. LEE!

Ernesto- A remarkable presentation and review of the literature on our current understanding of tissue response in the aesthetic zone. The minimal invasive techniques has become my preferred approach in selected cases previously treated with open flap / block or GBR. This is a great contribution to our field. Thank you

Managing Esthetic Implant Complications
Dental implant success today is judged not only by osseointegration but also by bone, tissue stability and of course long term esthetic results. Cosmetic predictability can often be difficult to attain, and esthetic implant failures can be multifactorial and patient management issues. Once esthetic implant failures occur, many cannot be fully corrected. Some complications must be addressed by an interdisciplinary dental team. In this summary of case reports, surgical considerations are provided, including cases of facial asymmetry/recession due to facial implant placement or bone loss resulting from technique/treatment failures, as well as papillary deficiencies. Restorative considerations for correcting failures are also discussed.

A Complete 3D Strategy to Esthetic Cross Arch Restorations: Guide Surgery & Soft Tissue Interface Management with CAD-CAM Restorations
I will highlight the benefits achievable through the use of guided planning, guided laboratory procedures and guided surgeries, while maintaining the fundamental principles of osseointegration. My ten years of scientifically proven experience and clinical follow-up in guided surgery and CAD/CAM biomimetic restorations will be shared with the audience to support clinical protocols as well as practical tips and tricks with case studies demonstrating each clinical scenario. New surgical and prosthetic improvements and novel proof-of-concept techniques to enhance the natural soft tissue integration will be presented. Viewers will also broaden their knowledge of hard and soft tissue surgical management through the guided surgery, discovering the latest implant designs and prosthetic interfaces designed to achieve an ideal soft tissue seal and bone level over time.

While different surgical techniques can restore most aspects of a ridge deficiency,as part of the soft tissue restorative frame, the regeneration of lost proximal papilla form is surgically limited to those papillae bordered on each side by a pontic The Classification of 6 types of papilla defects is based on the specifics of the restorative support on either side of the individual site,and can therefore be a tooth, implant or pontic, or combinations of the 3.

Fibrin Assisted Soft Tissue Promotion (FASTP) Premium Member Content

Fibrin Assisted Soft Tissue Promotion (FASTP)
Soft tissue recession around teeth and implants is an epidemic problem in the field of dentistry. A predictable and long-term soft tissue augmentation outcome is primarily dependent on proper diagnosis, prognosis and treatment planning. Harvesting limitations of autogenous tissue from the palate represent a true challenge when treating patients with multiple recessions or gingival deformities around teeth and dental implants. The Advanced Platelet Rich Fibrin (APRF) and injectable platelet-rich fibrin (iPRF) are promising tissue promoters that can be a suitable alternative option.

Peri-implant Soft Tissue Conditioning with Provisional Restorations in the Esthetic Zone: The Dynamic Compression Technique
An optimal esthetic implant restoration is a combination of a visually pleasing prosthesis and surrounding peri-implant soft tissue architecture. This article introduces a clinical method, the dynamic compression technique, of conditioning soft tissues around bone-level implants with provisional restorations in the esthetic zone. The technique has several goals: to establish an adequate emergence profile; to recreate a balanced mucosa course and level in harmony with the gingiva of the adjacent teeth, including papilla height/width, localization of the mucosal zenith and the tissue profile's triangular shape; as well as to establish an accurate proximal contact area with the adjacent tooth/implant crown.

Developing Optimal Peri-Implant Papillae within the Esthetic Zone: Guided Soft Tissue Augmentation
Osseointegrated dental implants have enjoyed longterm success in the rehabilitation of totally edentulous patients. Every aspect of traditional treatment planning protocols continues to be re-evaluated and updated to better incorporate the benefits of osseointegration into clinical practice. This is particularly evident as dentistry has committed to fully integrating this approach into the more varied and demanding environment of the partially edentulous patient.

Fundamentally Changing Soft Tissue Grafting

Fundamentally Changing Soft Tissue Grafting
Soft tissue augmentation procedures to increase the existing zone or create a new zone of keratinized tissue have been classically, and are routinely, performed using the patient's palate as the donor material. This article describes the simplistic use of a periodontal material that can be used for soft tissue augmentation procedures without using the patient's own palate to procure the donor tissue. This periodontal material is an acellular dermal allograft that has been used extensively in medicine.…
