Auto‐dentin platelet‐rich fibrin matrix is an alternative biomaterial for different augmentation procedures

Autologous dentin grafts derived from extracted teeth have shown promise as bone graft materials to promote bone regeneration. This study aimed to evaluate the clinical, radiographic and histological results of the use of autologous dentin matrices in various bone regeneration procedures. The use of autologous dentin particles mixed with PRF was shown to be effective as an alternative to conventional bone graft materials in GBR and maxilla

3D vertical soft tissue augmentation of aesthetically compromised permanent submerged dental implants

Midfacial peri-implant soft tissue recession poses a significant challenge to achieving satisfactory aesthetic outcomes and requires a comprehensive, multidisciplinary ap- proach. The present study describes two challenging cases in which implants were aesthetically compromised. A predictable technique was employed to manage these cases by using the implant itself as a tent to achieve 3D horizontal and vertical soft tissue building, which resulted in improved patient satisfaction.

A decision-making tree for evaluating an esthetically compromised single dental implant

This clinical decision tree illustrates numerous case scenarios with various esthetic complications around an esthetically compromised, but clinically healthy single implant and provides clinicians with possible solutions as a predictable map for horizontal and vertical soft tissue augmentation in order to manage different clinical circumstances. According to current evidence, the key to treating such esthetic complications is the use of an adequate pre-surgical prosthetic interdisciplinary approach with proper surgical techniques in order to optimize soft tissue dimensions and create better esthetic results. This may be accomplished through a purely surgical, combination of surgical and prosthetic, or purely prosthetic approaches.

The present report describes a series of successfully treated periimplant esthetic complication cases in accordance with the decision-making tree that
the authors recommend in order to achieve better long-term esthetic outcomes
