"The Soft Block": Treating Severe Recessions Around Dental Implants - Part 1 of 2

Description:
Severe recessions around implants is a common issue. Unhappily this is a problem we have to face in our everyday practice. To deal with it we have to develop strategies to meet our patients expectations. Recessions and peri-implantitis come together very often. Being capable to improve the biological environment around a dental implant may have huge relevance in it´s long-term prognosis. Treatment algorithms proposed by some authors are often very complicated and sometimes frustrating in what comes to results. Filipe Lopes & Bernardo Mira Correa will try to present simple algorithms and biological ways for trying to solve this kind of clinical challenge, other than implant explantation that must be also, and so many times, considered as the first choice. This is intended to be the first of a series of posts on the subject. We will feature different soft tissue management strategies, including autologous grafts and alloderm. We will underline the importance of: diagnosis,PRGF ENDORET® graft, type of implant, grafting technique to use and allografts that can possibly help us on some challenging situations. Emphasis will be also held on tools, the BTI extraction kit, that allow us an easier removal of implants than ever before, reducing dramatically the biological cost of their loss and making it easier to place a new implant. At the end we will try to provide for a simpler treatment algorithm, that has been of good service for us, for some years now.

Hi Roy! I saw your question just now! Thx for watching. In fact this is a very special type of fully epithelized FGG (free gingival graft), so you don´t cover it. Until the end of october 2018 I will publish a brightbook on the technique.

Mansur Roy - (10/5/2017 5:07 PM)

Hi Flipe, Thanks for sharing the case. did you cover the CT graft entirely with the flap?

filipe lopes - (1/6/2017 12:01 PM)

Thx Mo. I posted 2 years and a half ago and the patient still smiles radiantly. That grey collar showing was really an issue for her. Up until now we were succesfull in avoiding expalnting the implant. See u soon in Vegas!

i am sorry but final position is not esthetic...

Maurice Salama - (7/24/2016 8:43 AM)

Excellent and just watched it for a 3rd time....thanks again Maurice

Hi Enrique Trevino! We invite you to also see: Soft Tissue Management - The Pink Contribution to Achieving Esthetic and Long Lasting Smiles, that we also published here on Dental XP! Its shows in detail, our protocol for grafting the donor site with PRGF! we hope you like it too! Best regards Bernardo

Enrique it's nice to see how Sonia Lezyi uses PRGF concomitant with extraordinary soft tissue grafting strategies.

filipe lopes - (10/20/2014 7:41 PM)

Edison thanks for your kind words. Filipe.

Filipe, thank you for your kind and prompt response. This is what makes Dental XP so exciting and rewarding. You are one of the gifted presenters who are generous enough to share your knowledge and skills with the clinicians throughout the world.

Emerging Perspectives in Soft Tissue Augmentation: Evolving Tools, Techniques & Materials
Soft tissue root coverage microsurgery and pontic site enhancement are frequently utilized periodontal plastic surgery techniques to create an ideal restorative frame for teeth, pontics and implants. Tunnel, Semilunar, VISTA etc. are among the new age techniques highlighted in this growing area of periodontal microsurgery. New autologous tissue harvest techniques, Allograft ACDM and Bioactive Modifiers have all changed the way we are capable of managing soft tissue deficiencies and have assisted the clinician in improving the healing qualities of these minimally invasive techniques. This lecture will cover site preparation techniques for conventional dentistry as well as prior to and after implant placement.

Treating the Terminal Dentition: A Patient-Center Approach
In patients with terminal dentition esthetic and functional replacement is a necessary objective, but no longer a sufficient-objective: nowadays, due to the clinical and extra clinical characteristics of these patients, management of the therapy is as important as its conclusion. Respect of the principle of autonomy, reduction of treatment length, simplification of surgical procedures and prosthetic management of implant immediate loading are the cornerstones of this philosophy and are the object of this lecture.

"The Socket Shield Technique"; Myths & Realities Premium Member Content

"The Socket Shield Technique"; Myths & Realities
Socket Shield Technique is a concept in implant dentistry that utilizes the partial extraction therapy principles, with the goal of preserving the hard and soft tissues around the dental implants. It has been reported to be a very predictable therapy so far. The proper case selection is crucial for the success of the technique. In fact, it is very technique sensitive and requires an advanced level in implant dentistry. Although the technique has a high overall success rate, but long term studies and high evidence level researches are needed to support the proof of principle available. This presentation will discuss and review the "myths & realities" of the new Socket Shield Technique or "PET" (Partial Extraction Therapy) concept.

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.

Guidelines for the Diagnosis and Treatment of Peri-Implant Disease

Guidelines for the Diagnosis and Treatment of Peri-Implant Disease
Although some risk factors of peri-implant disease are well defined, the lack of efficient and predictable approaches to treat peri-implantitis has created difficulty in the management of those complications. The aim of this review was the evaluate the reliability of the diagnosis methods and to provide a set of guidelines to treat peri-implant disease. A search of PubMed and a hand search of articles related to peri-implant diseases were conducted up to August 2013. A summary of the current methods for the diagnosis of peri-implantitis, its potential risk factors, and a flow chart to guide the clinical management of these conditions are presented.
