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

Description:
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.

When is Part release ? Thank You

saadia rehman - (2/6/2018 11:04 PM)

thank you doctor,i would like to ask how much vertical soft tissue thickness is considered as thin ?when we should think that this much soft tissue thickness is safe or may be considered as thin or starting thick?

The part 2- When

Gerald - I believe that we are at a stage where bone loss should no longer be an expected occurrence. the message is that if the treatment design accounts for the known variables that may influence bone loss, i.e. thin biotype, thin labial bone, biologic remodeling, type of connection, cement, occlusion, hygiene... etc, we can minimize, and in more and more cases, eliminate bone loss.
Tom - I believe that the message is that platform switching protocols alone will not override biological remodeling bone loss in thin tissue environments.
Osama - generally 2mm or more is deemed a minimum thickness of tissue to develop optimum and stable long-term environments.

Bright young man, nice presentation on the advantages of a thick biotype and platform switching, however, he did not address the issue of perimplantitis and regardless of the tissue type....bone loss will occur. Gerald Rudick dds Montreal, Canada

Nice presentation. Can we take it that you do not consider biological width a cause for bone loss in thin bio type

Osama Abdel Qader - (12/30/2017 7:05 AM)

Nice presentation of showing the importance of this new parameter... what is the minimum thickness of vertical tissue to call it "Thick Vertical Tissue" ? thank you

ward clemmons530 - (12/26/2017 6:51 PM)

I would imagine that placing an abutment one time and leaving it alone throughout the treatment would also be a factor. Only problem is that you need to use cemented restorations or use some sort of transitional abutment. Very well done. Aciu Labai!

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.

Periodontal-Prosthesis in Modern Dentistry – Part 2 of 2
Clinicians must be aware of patient expectations when planning dental treatment. When full mouth reconstruction is planned, it is very important to satisfy such expectations in order to provide successful treatment. Patients are often concerned about the cost and duration of treatment, and the pain, esthetics, comfort, and function after treatment. However, we cannot assure longevity unless the treatment has a scientific basis.

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.

"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.

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.

Biologic Width Adjacent to Loaded Implant with Machined and Rough Collars in the Dog

Biologic Width Adjacent to Loaded Implant with Machined and Rough Collars in the Dog
Dental implant surface technology has evolved from a relatively smooth machined implant surface for osseointegration to more roughened osteoconductive surfaces. Recent studies suggest that peri-implant soft tissue inflammation with progressive bone loss (ie peri-implantitis) is becoming a prevalent condition. One possibility that could explain sucha a finding is that more bacterial plaque forms on the roughened implant and abutment surfaces, which may result in the peri-implant inflammation if the soft tissues. This study compared 36 tissue-level implants with a machined transmucosal collar to 36 implants with a relatively roughened transmucosal surface in the dog. The results demonstrated that the connective tissue contact was similar between the two implant types but that the junctional epithelium and biologic width dimensions were greater around the implants with the machined collars...
