1/10. Simultaneous team approach of a crown-lengthening procedure and an operative restoration: technique and long-term effect.

    Traditionally, crown-lengthening procedures to expose subgingival caries for operative restorative work are carried out in a two-stage approach. A disadvantage of this procedure is that the gingival margin associated with the treated tooth moves apically; this may create an esthetic problem. Resin-modified glass-ionomer cement has been demonstrated to have good biocompatibility with dental hard and soft tissues. Surgical and restorative procedures were combined at the same appointment in an effort to achieve a restoration with minimal change in the gingival margin. Four patients have been treated with this one-stage team approach and followed for 8 to 13 months. The clinical results demonstrated this team approach procedure is excellent for the dentition when esthetics is a consideration.

2/10. Periodontal esthetics and soft-tissue root coverage for treatment of cervical root caries.

    As the pace of change accelerates in periodontics and esthetic dentistry, an increasing number of procedures are being developed that require knowledge and treatment from both fields. The synergy developed by combining these two fields of dentistry allows for better esthetic outcomes for our patients. Two of these procedures include esthetic crown lengthening and soft-tissue root coverage. As demonstrated in this article, soft-tissue root coverage can be performed on previously restored roots and as an option for treating root caries.

3/10. Soft tissue root coverage as treatment for cervical abrasion and caries.

    Root exposure caused by gingival recession may result in cervical abrasion, root caries, root sensitivity, and compromised esthetics. Although cervical root lesions can be treated with Class V restorations, there may be advantages in treating them with soft tissue grafts for root coverage since they restore the dento-gingival unit to its prerecession condition. The rationale for root coverage with soft tissue grafts is reviewed and two cases are presented of successful root coverage procedures in which gingival recession associated with cervical abrasion and caries was present.

4/10. rehabilitation of a bulimic patient using endosteal implants.

    This article describes the dental rehabilitation of a bulimic patient using endosteal implants. Although the patient, a 31-year-old woman with a long history of bulimia nervosa, had been receiving medical and psychological treatment, the condition was not completely controlled. Clinical examination revealed multiple crowns with extensive cervical caries. The prognosis for all remaining teeth was poor. After extractions, implant therapy was implemented to provide support for fixed prostheses. After the implants were uncovered and during provisional therapy, the peri-implant tissue exhibited inflammation and lack of keratinized tissue requiring additional periodontal procedures before definitive restorations could be placed. Because of the difficulty in managing the peri-implant tissue during the many phases of implant therapy, treatment was challenging. One year after treatment, the patient's low self-esteem had improved substantially and her restorations provided satisfactory esthetics and function.

5/10. Coverage of carious roots by a subepithelial connective tissue graft.

    PURPOSE: To assess whether coverage of an untreated or restored carious root lesion with a subepithelial connective tissue graft would provide a predictable, esthetically acceptable result and prevent further caries progression. MATERIALS AND methods: Twenty-seven teeth from 13 patients with root caries and gingival recessions of 3.4 /- 0.2 mm (mean /- SEM) were treated with subepithelial connective tissue grafts. Eighteen teeth had untreated caries, and the other nine had composite or glass-ionomer restorations. The carious dentin and the plastic restorations were removed prior to the surgical procedure. The exposed roots were thoroughly planed and covered by a subepithelial connective graft with no further root treatment or conditioning. The teeth were examined periodically from 1-6 years post-treatment for retention of root surface coverage and presence of carious lesions. RESULTS: The mean root coverage recession left after the treatment was 0.3 /- 0.1 mm, with coverage of 92.4 /- 2.4%. Significant differences (P< 0.05) were found between the coverage of roots with carious lesions that had not been restored and those that had restorations removed. However, since the number of teeth with restorations was limited, further study is required to confirm this difference. In 18 cases, complete coverage of the recession was achieved. The results were stable, and no further recessions or recurrent caries were detected.

6/10. Periodontal regenerative therapy with coverage of previously restored root surfaces: case reports.

    Two case reports are presented to demonstrate a treatment that restores proper esthetics, cures hypersensitivity, and enhances periodontal support for cases of root caries or failing Class V restorations associated with gingival recessions. The procedure involves removing the existing restoration, elevating a trapezium-shaped full thickness flap, root planing to achieve a desired concave shape, and placing a barrier membrane. In both cases, satisfying clinical results have been maintained for 18 months.

7/10. connective tissue grafting on resin ionomer in localized gingival recession.

    BACKGROUND: One of the main objectives of periodontal reconstructive surgery is the coverage of exposed roots that occur due to gingival recession. On some occasions, where a caries, root resorption, or amalgam restoration exists on the exposed root surface, the treatment planning becomes more complex. This case report describes the use of a subepithelial connective tissue graft (SCTG) on a resin ionomer-restored root surface to treat gingival recession that is complicated with the above-mentioned handicaps. methods: An amalgam restoration and carious lesion were removed following full-thickness flap reflection, and the cavity was restored with glass ionomer cement. An SCTG was placed onto the restoration, and the flap was coronally positioned. A porcelain crown restoration was performed 9 months after surgery. RESULTS: At 3-, 6-, and 9-month follow-ups, probing depths were reduced and gain in attachment level was obtained with no clinical signs of inflammation in gingiva. Monthly periodontal controls revealed that creeping attachment had occurred on the restoration during the follow-up periods. CONCLUSION: This single case report serves as a good example to show that SCTG can be successfully performed to treat gingival recession associated with a glass ionomer-restored root surface.

8/10. Unusual external resorption of a maxillary lateral.

    This article defines an unusual previously unreported entity afflicting a maxillary lateral incisor. Labial idiopathic external root resorption just apical to the cemento-enamel presented as a gingival (periodontal) problem and was misinterpreted as cervical dental caries. This report defines a new possibility for a radicular defect in a maxillary lateral incisor that may cause periodontal problems.

9/10. Surgical correction of gingival recessions associated with radicular carious lesions.

    In this clinical report, six cases are presented in which radicular carious lesions and gingival recessions were treated concurrently. The combined treatment included the removal of caries, radicular planing, and various surgical techniques for root coverage. Traditional procedures, as well as newer procedures, such as guided tissue regeneration, showed successful results.

10/10. aging and medically compromised periodontal prosthodontic patients--salvaging abutment teeth undermined by root surface caries.

    aging and medically compromised patients are retaining their teeth longer. With the prolonged use of medications that produce xerostomia, these patients become more caries susceptible. Root surface caries, which undermines abutment crowns, results in loss of abutments because it is difficult to detect incipient lesions and make appropriate repairs before a significant amount of coronal dentin is lost. With the absence of a significant amount of coronal dentin, routine preparation and impression techniques can result in failure and frustration. For many such patients crown lengthening is the treatment of choice. It provides the restorative dentist convenient access and visibility. However, surgery may be contraindicated because of unfavorable anatomy. It may also be refused by the patient, often upon the advice of a physician. This article provides predictable alternatives for routine preparation and impression techniques. documentation substantiates the long-term efficacy of these alternatives.
