Mucogingival esthetic surgery is dedicated to the treatment of mucogingival esthetic alterations. These may be caused by gingival recession, often in association with abrasion and/or root caries or, conversely, altered passive eruption. The aims of mucogingival esthetic surgery may also be to augment gingival width and height around prostheses or implants and to fill out edentulous ridges. Techniques for edentulous ridge augmentation
are addressed in the second volume. This volume describes and illustrates mucogingival surgical techniques as applied to native teeth or implants, with the chief aim of satisfying the patient’s esthetic requirements.
Cardaropoli, Daniele / Casentini, Paolo
Each chapter of this highly practical guide begins with a question-and-answer section that addresses clinicians’ most frequently asked questions: Why are “pink esthetics” the most important factor in determining a good treatment outcome? When is immediate postextraction implant placement preferable, and when is it safer to carry out preservation or augmentation of the ridge? When and how can a keratinized tissue band be properly reconstructed or peri-implant soft tissues be augmented? How are peri-implant esthetic complications treated? Citing from the literature, the authors review the prevailing best evidence to provide guidelines for treatment. With more than 90 clinical cases demonstrating a wide range of therapeutic needs, the authors explore compelling case examples to provide step-by-step analysis of techniques and explain the best treatment options in different clinical scenarios. This book offers answers to dilemmas that every clinician faces in daily practice and outlines clear strategies for achieving optimal treatment results.
Dental and Medical Approaches to the Face and Smile
Romano, Rafi (Editor)
Proper dissemination of knowledge in the dental specialties is currently one of the biggest obstacles to consistent improvement in care. This book examines the treatment-planning process from a multidisciplinary perspective in an effort to balance the very complex process of diagnosis with the need for simplicity and coherence. Innovations in techniques and materials appear on a daily basis. At the same time, patients today demand individualized treatment plans that address not only their dental and/or esthetic problems but their self-image and personal expectations as well. Like its predecessor, The Art of the Smile, this book promotes theoretical understanding while offering practical insight and clinical guidance. It is intended for the beginner and the advanced clinician alike, each seeking the tools necessary to achieve an optimal result.
