Papilla Management in a Severe Periodontal and Cosmetic Deformity: Combining Veneer into Full Graft (ViFG) and Veneer into Split Graft (ViSG)

Description:
Bone defects and periodontal disease can create challenging defects in the anterior area. The esthetic compromise of the anterior regions takes us to the difficult task of trying to solve our patient´s problems as rapidly as possible, with minimum discomfort. When we have such severe defects as the one presented here, it´s essential to plan in advance and to be sure of what is possible to correct with bone grafting and with soft tissue management. The key question in this clinical case is to be able to place the soft tissue graft exactly where you want it to heal. You also have to know in advance, and of course inform your patient, that you will have to perform at least one additional soft tissue graft, besides the one which has been done simultaneously with implant placement and immediate load. In our clinical practice we use routinely PRGF ENDORET grafts, not only as vehicle for particulate graft transportation, but also as a biological enhancer of both oseointegration and soft tissue healing. The quality of the final soft tissue contour was provided by the quantity of keratinized gingiva derived from the two soft tissue procedures as well as from the preservation of the epithelial band attached to the connective tissue graft collected from the palate. This innovative procedure allowed the creation of a better papilla like formation between implants and a maintainable end result.

Good result

How about thickness after healing? Don´t you think it´s more stable through time?

Bernardo Mira Correa - (1/11/2014 1:27 PM)

I totally agree with you Maurice, with ACDM horizontal soft tissue enhancement can be achieved, but this kind of both vertical and horizontal need, would not work properly with ACDM.

Dear Vinh Nguyen and Maurice, I´ve just posted a small video, as promised, where it´s possible to see the end result 4 years after surgery. Hopefully the video will be available soon. I think the result was pretty acceptable from an aesthetic and smile point of view. She´s quite happy and much more smiley (so tells her husband! :) ) without being afraid of doing so. That´s our real reward, trying to help, in some way, other people.

Maurice Salama - (11/18/2013 11:28 AM)

Filipe; No way that ACDM would work here like autologous tissue. I agree with your approach and hope to see more from you and your TEAM. regards Maurice

Bernardo thank you for showing up! I know you also like this wedge palatal graft technique. Bernardo and I have discussed, during this patient´s treatment wether or not we could reach the same results with accelular dermal matrix. What do you guys, both think about this issue?

filipe lopes - (11/18/2013 11:18 AM)

Hello Maurice. An "Excellent job" from Dr. Salama is really a compliment for me. In fact in these kind of clinical situations we can never expect 100% regeneration. I´d love to have done orthodontics to bring all the tissues to the coronal... but when I told the patient that she would still probably have to go through soft tissue management procedures she refused to wear braces.

filipe lopes - (11/18/2013 11:14 AM)

Thank you for your kind remark Vinh Nguyen. I´ll be posting soon, in the posts area of dental xp, a smile of this same patient & intra-oral photo records 4 years after treatment. I think it´ll be nice to see how things have been evolving since then. Dr. Filipe Lopes Portugal

Very challenging situation indeed! Great peri-implant soft tissue's enhancement! Nice job Filipe Lopes!!

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.

This presentation will focus on the interdisciplinary relationship of the restorative dentist, periodontist and orthodontist to reconstruct the soft tissue foundation for all of these restorative options in anterior tooth replacement. The diagnosis of deficiencies as well as the varied treatment options will be discussed in detail. This includes periodontal crown lengthening, esthetic periodontal plastic soft tissue grafting procedures as well as prescription adjunctive orthodontic tooth movement to manipulate the soft tissue foundation prior to or subsequent with the restorative options of implants, bridges, or pontic replacement.

Treating Two Adjacent Missing Teeth in the Esthetic Zone - Part 1: The Pink Hybrid Restoration & the Unilateral Versus Bilateral Defect Concept

Treating Two Adjacent Missing Teeth in the Esthetic Zone - Part 1: The Pink Hybrid Restoration & the Unilateral Versus Bilateral Defect Concept
This article, the first of a planned three-part series, outlines a new surgical & prosthetic approach for treating cases involving two missing adjacent teeth in the esthetic zone. These type of cases, particularly when combined with a three-dimensional ridge deficiency, represent one of esthetic dentistry's most challenging dilemmas. A Clear understanding of the unilateral and bilateral defect concept is necessary to properly evaluate each particular case, understand surgical limitations, perform a better risk assessment, establish an esthetic prognosis, develop the best clinical-laboratory strategy, and adjust patients' expectations. While not recommended for every case, represents a useful, economical, and predictable alternative that decreases the umber and complexity of interventions.
