Esthetic Crown Lengthening

Description:
Dr. Lee Silverstein discusses in great detail how to prepare, plan and implement esthetic crown lengthening in preparation for restorative dentistry. With the restorative end result always in mind, Dr. Silverstein also reviews the components of smile design that must be considered and adhered to by the surgeon in order to be successful in designing the crown lengthening surgical intervention.

Excellent presentation

It is an interesting topic to clear our concept and the surgery of doing crown lengthening. However, how to the treat the root exposure after crown lengthening.

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.

The “Semilunar” Graft Technique in Periodontal Plastic Surgery:  Revision and Retreatment of Anterior Recession Defects. Premium Member Content

The “Semilunar” Graft Technique in Periodontal Plastic Surgery: Revision and Retreatment of Anterior Recession Defects.
In this lecture and video based Case Report, a patient with multiple recession defects in the Maxillary Anterior Region who was first treated with Tunnel Approach and ACDM grafts reveals breakdown of the result at 3 years in the area of the Maxillary Left Central Incisor with further recession and erosion of the root. The Semi-Lunar Approach is highlighted as a minimally invasive microsurgical approach to this situation. Incision design, instrumentation and suturing are highlighted. Post-op results are displayed.

From Extraction to Prosthetic Restoration: Considerations for the Esthetic Zone Premium Member Content

From Extraction to Prosthetic Restoration: Considerations for the Esthetic Zone
This webinar will highlight surgical and restorative techniques to accomplish predictable outcomes in the esthetic zone with implant therapy. Treatment modalities will be demonstrated with high quality photography and case series discussion. Surgical modalities presented will include ridge preservation, the current evidence on the use of growth factors such as PRP and hr-PDGF bb. Also timing of implant placement as well as soft and hard tissue augmentation will be discussed. Special emphasis will be placed on immediate provisionalization of implants to accomplish optimal peri-implant mucosa architecture. Techniques to transfer provisional emergence profile to the final restoration will be presented.

Critical Concepts in Implant and Gingival Surgery; Flap Designs, Suture Techniques and Soft Tissue Management Premium Member Content

Critical Concepts in Implant and Gingival Surgery; Flap Designs, Suture Techniques and Soft Tissue Management
This presentation by the Troeltzsch Brothers features the fundamentals of surgical procedures in the oral cavity. Highlighted are the basic concepts we all must integrate into our daily clinical practice. A discussion of the essential anatomic guidelines as they relate to flap design options and indications are emphasized. Furthermore, material selection, sutures and techniques of wound closures are clearly addressed. Critical solutions to common surgical complications are also described. This lecture is intended for surgical beginners as well as experienced clinicians who want to update their surgical knowledge. These fundamentals are also very popular in the hands-on courses given by the Troeltzsch brothers.

Positive & Negative Factors in Stem Cells & Wound Healing: Solutions for Long Term Stability
The main factor for soft and hard tissue healing is the speed and quality of new vascularization. This lecture will present all the positive and negative factors who control the angiogenesis, blood supply and bone metabolism: -Biological factors as vit. D and cholesterol have to be checked before the surgery -The management of the flaps with sutures is one the main factor for the bone and soft tissue maintenance.. -The soft brushing technique is a new technique which increases the flap without periosteal incision nor bleeding. -Careful Implant placement without too much torque, specially in cortical bone or grafted bone at the re-entry.. -The A-PRF liquid and i-PRF are solutions to reduce the mobility of the granules (sticky bone) with an improvement of angiogenesis The use of growth factors is a stimulation of angiogenesis. The prevention of the negative factors will allow us to achieve the long term stability.

Fibrin Assisted Soft Tissue Promotion (FASTP) - A New Perspective in Periodontal Plastic Surgery Premium Member Content

Fibrin Assisted Soft Tissue Promotion (FASTP) - A New Perspective in Periodontal Plastic Surgery
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.

Clinical scenarios where crown lengthening procedures are indicated within the esthetic zone require special consideration to achieve predictable restorative results. Whether they are performed for the purposes of exposing sound tooth structure, or to enhance the appearance of the definitive restorations, these procedures must be planned to satisfy biologic requirements, while simultaneously avoiding deleterious esthetic effects. The implementation of diagnostic criteria, along with evidence-based…

A Modified Surgical/Prosthetic Approach for Optimal Single Implant Supported Crown

A Modified Surgical/Prosthetic Approach for Optimal Single Implant Supported Crown
Optimal implant placement can be achieved only if the ridge maintains its dimensions and the qllality of bone. To prevent the resorption of the ridge and to enhance the quality of regenerated bone, two main approaches have been suggested. Palt I of this article presents a modified regenerative technique - the "socket seal surgery"' (SSS). Part II will present a modified prosthetic technique - the "cervical contouring concept" (CCC) - and it will be published in the May, 1994, issue of PP&A. The…

Using an Acellular Dermal Matrix for Increasing Keratinized Tissue Around Dental Implants

Using an Acellular Dermal Matrix for Increasing Keratinized Tissue Around Dental Implants
In previously published articles, investigators concluded that gingival recession may affect up to 90% of the population. Gingival recession ranges from one to three millimeters and is predominantly noted on the buccal surfaces of molar, premolar, and lower incisor teeth. Although surgical grafting techniques have traditionally been used to restore these recession sites, an acellular allograft material has recently been developed for increasing the zone of keratinized tissue surrounding teeth and…
