Soft Tissue Conversion For Increased Predictability of Bone Graft in Large Ridge Defects

Description:
In this video, Dr. H. Ryan Kazemi presents a technique for conversion of thin tissue biotype to thick tissue biotype improving the quality and quantity of soft tissue necessary for predictable bone augmentation of large ridge defects. Improved soft tissue thickness will decrease risk of tissue dehiscence and provide a better quality of tissue for flap repositioning and suturing.

Bone Augmentation & Vascular Enhancement Concepts: It’s Time to Make it Simple!
The purpose of this presentation is to make the participant think biology first and not mechanic first. A biological thinking will dramatically simplify vertical and/or horizontal bone augmentation procedures. We will also be introducing a new approach for the simplification of soft tissue handling: the Soft Brushing Technique, that will allow the coronal advancement of both buccal and lingual flaps, but also the palatal flap without the need for periosteal releasing incisions.

Maximizing Esthetics with Minimally Invasive Surgery Around Implants Premium Member Content

Maximizing Esthetics with Minimally Invasive Surgery Around Implants
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.

Negative Factors for Soft & Hard Tissue Maintenance Premium Member Content

Negative Factors for Soft & Hard Tissue Maintenance
Maintaining the bone is the most difficult challenge in implantology (bone grafted or native bone around implants). If a tissue want to live long, it has to follow 2 conditions: The first condition is to organize a full blood supply.. However, it’s not enough. The solution for the long term stability is to try to organize the stability of the blood supply.. by the respect of several biologic conditions. Almost of these conditions are explained in this lecture. We introduce here the new concept to avoid the reduction of blood supply by the periosteal incision: the soft brushing technique is the first technique which allows a very large increase of the flap without any incision: the flap closure without tension but without any incision.

A Review of Clinical Applications for Soft Tissue Allografts & Autografts: Solutions for Teeth, Implants, and Dentures Premium Member Content

A Review of Clinical Applications for Soft Tissue Allografts & Autografts: Solutions for Teeth, Implants, and Dentures
The presentation focuses on the clinical applications for acellular dermal graft (ADG) materials. ADGs have been commonly presented and discussed to provide solutions for treating gingival recession. Compared to autogenous grafts, they have the advantage of minimizing pain, discomfort, and surgery time for patients by avoiding an intraoral donor site such as the palate. In addition to treating gingival recession, ADGs also have uses in bone grafting surgeries such as socket grafting and ridge augmentations (GBR) when they are utilized as a barrier membrane. Finally, ADGs can be combined with bone grafting materials to aid in the augmentation of edentulous ridges to aid denture support. While this last application is less common, it's use is worthy of discussion.

Vertical or Shoulderless Preparations in Contemporary Prosthodontics Premium Member Content

Vertical or Shoulderless Preparations in Contemporary Prosthodontics
Tooth preparations without a defined finish line have been termed in several different ways, such as knife edge, feather edge, or shoulderless. From a biological standpoint, preserving a maximum amount of sound tooth structure, as it is done in vertical preparations, might also offer a more conservative alternative to a horizontal margin design in other clinical conditions such as endodontically treated teeth, vital teeth in young individual, teeth affected by caries at the cervical third. Vertical margins on zirconia crowns have been tested in vitro and clinical reports have been published. A re-evaluation of possible advantages and shortcomings of vertical preparation design in contemporary prosthodontics will be presented in light of recently published literature.

Achieving Predictable Connective Tissue Root Coverage

Achieving Predictable Connective Tissue Root Coverage
Gingival recession creates esthetic issues. These issues may be corrected from a restorative perspective by the placement of composite resin or ceramic over the exposed root. But this approach often results in a gingival-incisal length that does not blend esthetically with the adjacent teeth. Often accompanying the gingival recession is a decrease in the band of attached gingiva. The wider the band of attached gingiva, the more stable the long-term result. Therefore, surgical correction of the recession…

Use of the Subepithelial Connective Tissue Graft to Improve Esthetics

Use of the Subepithelial Connective Tissue Graft to Improve Esthetics
The subepithelial connective tissue graft is a gingival grafting plastic surgery procedure that can be used to enhance the aesthetic and gingival contour of the periodontium around dental implants. This technique is described and illustrated to create a soft-tissue root prominence and mask the grey color penetrating the thin labial attached gingival tissues over dental implants.
