An Evidence-Based Guide to Prognosis and Treatment
Author: Khadija Amine
Publisher: Springer Nature
This book is an evidence-based guide to periodontal root coverage that provides up-to-date information on the etiology of gingival recession defects, prognostic factors relating to the defect, patient, or operator, and surgical techniques. Attention is drawn to critical elements in the execution of surgical procedures that can impact on outcomes. In order to ensure that the guidance reflects the highest level of evidence, the authors have undertaken an exhaustive literature search of the four main electronic databases (MEDLINE/PubMed, Cochrane Library, ScienceDirect, and EBSCOhost) for studies on root coverage, including randomized clinical trials, systematic reviews, meta-analyses, and network meta-analyses. The aim is to supply readers with a truly reliable source of knowledge that will help them to navigate this complex field, in which numerous surgical procedures have been described, with great variability in clinical and statistical outcomes. The book will be of value to all who wish to improve their understanding of gingival recession defects and the techniques to achieve root coverage that offer the best long-term results.

Esthetics is the prime concern in today's dental care both for the patient and the treatment provider. Esthetic dentistry is just not limited to color matching restorations but soft tissue considerations like position of the lips, color and contour of gingiva around teeth also play a very important role in overall esthetic appearance of face. Providing an esthetic restoration in the anterior region of the mouth has been the basis of peril-implant esthetics. Period esthetics or Periodontal plastic surgeries in its broad term covers various procedures either around natural teeth or dental implant fixtures in the esthetic zone. This may range from crown lengthening procedures, coverage of denuded root surfaces, ridge augmentation, periodontal prosthetic corrections and cosmetic surgical corrections around dental implants. Prosthetics also plays an equal important role in implant esthetics. Various prosthetic parameters like 3 D implant placement, implant abutment interface, provisionalisation during interim period, choice of abutment material, digital dentistry etc. are important factors at the pinnacle of successful outcome. This book is a comprehensive overview of clinical techniques related to Periodontal esthetics and Implant Esthetics.

Abstract: Periodontal plastic surgery comprises an increasing part of clinical periodontology. Clinical trials have traditionally used professionals to judge esthetic outcome, and few studies have addressed patient needs and requests (true end points). Development of universally accepted and validated methods for professional esthetic assessment, together with standardized questionnaires for patient‐perceived outcome, may help to provide better insights into the true needs and benefits of periodontal and implant‐associated plastic surgery. In this volume of Periodontology 2000, experienced researchers and clinicians from different subdisciplines of periodontology evaluate: treatment of gingival recession with or without papilla elevation; clinical crown lengthening in the natural dentition and in prosthodontic preparative treatment; periodontal regeneration around natural teeth; and soft‐tissue augmentation in edentulous areas. Similarly, experts in different areas of implant science address esthetic outcomes with single and multiple implant rehabilitation, alveolar ridge preservation, implant positioning and immediate implant placement in the esthetic zone.
This new book focuses on dental implants used in conjunction with other prosthetic devices in the general dentist's office, designed to help the partially or completely edentulous patient recover normal function, esthetics, comfort, and speech. Step-by-step procedures guide practitioners through challenging clinical situations and assist them in refining their technique. The information in this practical, highly illustrated book reflects the latest in continued research, diagnostic tools, treatment planning, implant designs, materials, and techniques. Prosthetic devices covered in this include complete dentures, bridges, overdentures, and various dental implant systems. A comprehensive chapter covering immediate load implants teaches dentists how to provide an edentulous patient with implants the same day surgery is performed. A thorough discussion of preimplant prosthodontic considerations takes the practitioner through the vital assessment steps necessary to plan treatment. Considerations for assessing the restorability of teeth adjacent to potential implant sites include abutment size, crown-root ratio, endodontic status, root configuration, tooth position, parallelism, root surface area, caries, and periodontal status. Fixed treatment planning options for the completely edentulous mandibular arches expands treatment options available to dentists, helping them to treat more patients. Material thoroughly explores the three dimensional concept of available bone and the implant treatment options for each type of bone anatomy, which enables practitioners to treat patients at any stage of edentulism. Comparisons of the periodontal indices for a natural tooth and an osteointegrated implant alert clinicians to fundamental differences in the support system. Basic biomechanics are discussed, demonstrating how these principles also relate to the scientific rationale for contemporary and future dental implant designs. A comprehensive discussion of bone density in an edentulous site explains this determining factor in treatment planning, implant design, surgical approach, healing time, and initial progressive bone loading during prosthetic reconstruction.
This long-anticipated book presents advanced surgical techniques for preserving and restoring natural dental esthetics in implant therapy. Written for the novice and expert alike, each chapter builds on the information in the preceding chapters in a clear, well-illustrated, and easy-to-follow format. Following a discussion of the rationale and biologic basis for creating a stable peri-implant soft tissue environment, the author presents a systematic approach to the patient evaluation, including quantification of the positive and negative elements that enhance and detract from an individual's smile; specific surgical maneuvers for managing peri-implant soft tissues, including various innovative flap designs; the surgical and prosthetic protocols of a technique for preserving the natural hard and soft tissue anatomy in patients undergoing tooth removal; soft tissue grafting techniques for augmenting attached tissues around natural teeth and implant restorations; and an innovative technique for reconstructing large-volume hard and soft tissue defects in the anterior maxillary area. The final chapter presents advanced cases that demonstrate the use of these procedures in various situations, along with algorithms to guide the implant surgeon in their selection and sequencing. For those who want to master new techniques for treating esthetic implant patients with a high level of predictability, this book is a must-have.
