Reconstruction of Large Post-Extraction Defects within the Esthetic Zone

Description:
In this lecture, Dr. Miguel Stanley discusses the reconstruction of large post-extraction defects within the esthetic zone involving both bone and soft tissue deficiencies. The presentation includes a new surgical approach utilizing solid cortical autogenous grafts to plug, augment and stabilize extraction sites in conjunction with a soft tissue graft to create a socket seal. In addition, considerations for thin biotypes are also provided.

Dr.Stanley :Excellent Work ! You mentioned the bone core is at least 2.5 mm in depth , why 2.5 mm ? how do you pick the depth for each case ? I mean is there any differences in deciding the core depth ? THank you ! Dr. Huang TAIWAN

The Cortical block,is round in shape. the alveolar socket is not. It's more triangular, if you will. the graft is slightly wider than the socket, and so it is wedged into place. like a cork. there is no movement at all. great comment at is the single most important thing to achieve success with this technique.

Once again I would like to thank you for your answer. A proof that this is a very interesting topic is the number of questions/comments you're having. In what concers to my second question, I feel it was somehow incomplete. When I mentioned the vascularization it was not only the phenomenom of vascularization itslef that I wanted to ask. I was also concerned with the block fixation and the way that it gets vascularized. The basic keys of success for bone regeneration are space maintenance and graft stability. It has been stated that micromovement has much has 20 microns could jeopardize the success of grafting, resulting sometimes in fibrous tissue Encapsulation. A good idea for your next lectures could probably be, getting some trephine cores and submit it for histomorphometric analysis. Best regards

Dear Hugo and vijailakshmi , thanks for your kind comments. i hope to be able to keep a constant flow of cases here on Dental XP in the future. As for the vascularization of the cortical graft. Remember that it is at least 2,5 mm thick, and although there is a cortical surface , underneath there is the more porous cancellous bone. As the normal socket preservation techniques regenerate, the normal vascularization also "works" on the graft. I have yet to experience no integration of this grafting technique, this also goes for the tissue graft. As for the young age of the patient. I would have to agree with Dr. Garber and Dr. Salama, it's always best to study the Biologic Maturity. The patient in question was quite developed in this sense. However i Look forward to a 2-3-6 year follow up.

David Garber - (2/20/2010 10:53 AM)

Dear Hugo i saw your comments and would agree - it is a great presentation by Dr Stanley - - in response to your third question I think like you Dr Stanley would agree that it appears best to wait until the young implant patient reaches BIOLOGIC maturity and stops growth - as opposed to purely age evaluation - - Dr Salama likes to look at hand /wrist radiograph &/or sequential cephalometric images

First of all I would like to congratulate dr. Stanley for his brilliant presentation. I have some questions that I'd like to adress: 1)In your oppinion where does the vascularization for this cortical bone graft comes from? 2) As far as socket seal procedures the literature reports failures around 40%, mainly because of lack of vascularization. Have you experienced the same? 3)According to your 3rd case , how prudent do you consider to place implants in 16 years old patients? Literature has shown consistently that vertical growth cessation varies from person to person and is seldom related to a specific age. Thank you very much

vijailakshmi acharya - (2/13/2010 11:07 PM)

Thank you Dr.Stanley for great idea of esthetic buccal flap .It makes all the difference .One question --is it ok to do this procedure as early as 16 yrs of age?

VITALII OMELIANCIC - (2/13/2010 3:49 PM)

Thank you! It was very good and helpful presentation!

Hi guys, thanks for the feed back. it appears that the thin biotype is an issue regarding the EBF(esthetic buccal flap). You can see Dr. Steigmann's work on this he brilliantly presents many cases. In my opinion, i use creative thinking when i suture, always a 5-0 plypropelyne suture and always include periosteum in suture for better "grip".
Its imperative to have no tension in these cases.

i never use surgical cement!

I have done a few cases with a collagen plug and results are interesting, however i do lose a bit of height. it all depends on the biotype i guess. I mean is some cases doing nothing we get great results, but its predictability we are after here.

Developing White and Pink Esthetics through Reconstructive Surgery
This lecture/video presentation describes the comprehensive treatment of a case in which we needed to reconstruct the hard and the soft tissue after the extraction of a central incisor. The video demonstrates on of several possible surgical procedures for the reconstruction of tissue defects within the esthetic zone. Specifically, a non-resorbable membrane was utilized and combined with a modification of the pedicle connective tissue graft at the same time of the extraction.

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.

Revisiting the Papilla in 2016 - Part 2 of 2
While different surgical techniques can restore most aspects of a ridge deficiency,as part of the soft tissue restorative frame, the regeneration of lost proximal papilla form is surgically limited to those papillae bordered on each side by a pontic The Classification of 6 types of papilla defects is based on the specifics of the restorative support on either side of the individual site,and can therefore be a tooth, implant or pontic, or combinations of the 3.

Patients desiring a cosmetic smile improvement can present treatment planning challenges. An excessive display of gingiva resulting from a high lip line often complicates treatment planning and can compromise the final esthetic result. As we evaluate the patient, we often have to ask ourselves, do we “lower the river” (increase tooth length incisally), “raise the bridge” (increase tooth length gingivally) or use a combination of both approaches? This article addresses this issue using a methodological…

A Novel Approach to Root Coverage: The Pinhole Surgical Technique

A Novel Approach to Root Coverage: The Pinhole Surgical Technique
Free connective tissue graft techniques are currently considered the most predictable surgical method for root coverage. However, morbidity associated with secondary graft sites has generated interest in other methods. The purpose of this study was to investigate the feasability of a novel surgical approach to root coverage: the pinhole surgical technique (PST). The retrospective study examined the results of PST used for 43 consecutive patients on 121 recession sites, of which 85 were Class I or II and 36 were Class III. The documented results indicate that PST holds promise as a minimally invasive, predictable, effective, and time and cost-effective method for obtaining optimal patient-based outcomes.

Maxillary Anterior Papilla Display During Smiling: A Clinical Study of the Interdental Smile Line

Maxillary Anterior Papilla Display During Smiling: A Clinical Study of the Interdental Smile Line
The purpose of this research was to quantify the presence or absence of interdental papillae during maximum smiling in a patient population aged 10 to 89 years. The visual display of interdental papillae during maximum smiling occurred 380 of the 420 patients examined in this study, equivalent to a 91% occurrence rate. Eighty seven percent of all patients categorized as having a low gingival smile line were found to display the interdental papillae upon smiling. Differences were noted for individual age groups according to the decade of life as well as a trend toward decreasing papillary display with increasing age. The importance of interdental papillae display during dynamic smiling should not be left undiagnosed since it is visible in over 91% of older patients and in 87% of patients with a low gingival smile line, representing a common and important esthetic element that needs to be assessed during smile analysis of the patient.
