 In recent years, aesthetic demand from patients has become the biggest challenge in Periodontology as well as in Implant dentistry. Aside from optimum functional results, ideal aesthetics are now essential to consider a case successful. Doubtlessly, this is particularly important in the anterior region where patient expectations are even higher.
  In order to avoid postoperative failures, both functional and aesthetic, a complete pre-surgical treatment planning is necessary. The starting point is a correct diagnosis based on a multidisciplinary approach, including periodontal, prosthetic, orthodontic and surgical parameters.
    Fortunately, increased patient demand was complemented by a revolution in biological concepts and surgical techniques with the introduction of procedures such as Guided Tissue Regeneration (GTR), Guided Bone Regeneration (GBR), Papilla Preservation Technique and Modified Papilla Preservation Technique. Contemporary periodontics recognizes the efficacy of regenerative approaches to retain teeth for masticatory function in order to achieve a biologically minimal sulcus. Verical ridge augmentation of the atrophic alveolar crest by means of bone graft mixed with Bio- Oss and a membrane is an advanced but reliable procedure in aesthetic areas as well as in the posterior zone. Several methods and osteogenic materials that have been investigated provide evidence that satisfies the histologic definition in periodontics as well as in Implant dentistry.

 Conclusively, patients’ satisfaction mandates acceptable management of esthetic zone, and of posterior areas. Therefore mutual selection must be complemented by soft tissue management in the form of incision design, and suturing technique that protect the healing of the procedure and result in maximizing functional results and aesthetics where required.

All these procedures will be presented in detail and clarified with the projection of several macro-videos.

Comparison of treatments of infrabony defects with Enamel Matrix Derivative, vs ePTFE membranes: A multicentric clinical trial.

AIM: The purpose of the present multicenter clinical trial was to compare the efficacy of two different procedures in the treatment of infrabony defects: guided tissue regeneration (GTR) with nonresorbable membranes and enamel matrix derivative (EMD). MATERIAL AND METHODS: Six centers participated in this study. Ninety-eight patients with an interproximal infrabony defect were selected. All patients were treated with an initial phase of scaling and root planing, and at the study's baseline the selected defects presented a value of probing depth (PD) > or =6 mm with an infrabony component > or =4 mm. Forty-nine patients were treated with GTR procedures (using ePTFE membranes (Gore-Tex W.L. Gore and Associates, Flagstaff, AZ, USA)) and forty-nine with EMDs (Emdogain (U Biora AB Malm, Sweden)). The efficacy of each treatment modality was investigated through covariance analysis. RESULTS: The patients were reevaluated at one year postop. Probing attachment level (PAL) gain and PD reduction were analyzed. In the Emdogain group the PAL before surgery (PAL 0) and the PD before surgery (PD 0) were respectively 9.9+/-1.4 and 8.5+/-1.6 mm. The PAL gain and the PD reduction at 1 year postsurgery were respectively 4.1+/-1.8 and 5.3+/-1.9 mm. The group of patients treated with membranes showed that PAL 0 and PD 0 were respectively 8.9+/-1.9 and 8.1+/-1.9. The PAL gain was 4.3+/-1.9 mm and the PD reduction was 5.6+/-1.5 mm. The mean PAL gain expressed by percentage (PAL gain/PAL 0) for the group treated with EMD was 41%, while it was 48% for the group treated with GTR. Results from our analysis suggest that there is no statistically significant difference between GTR and EMD treatments in terms of PAL gain, PD reduction and recession variation. Applying the regression model to a group of patients with a PAL 0 > or =8 mm, we observed a better clinical outcome in terms of PAL gain (difference of 0.3 mm) in patients treated with the GTR procedure compared to those treated with EMD. Covariance analysis showed a strong correlation in both groups of patients between PAL gain and full mouth bleeding score, and between PAL gain and defect morphology and depth.
