In this 6 part series Dr. Roberto Rossi evaluates all aspects of periodontal treatment dealing with aesthetics, including periodontal plastic surgery for root coverage and soft tissue augmentation, treatment of infrabony osseous lesions, treatment of ridge defects, periodontal and prosthetic problems, and problems concerning the soft tissue around implants.

Biomimetic periodontology. Part 1. Mucogingival lesions and soft tissue reconstruction around implants - Dr. Roberto Rossi

Aims and objectives:

  • Understand the goals of periodontal plastic surgery
  • The aetiology of recession defects
  • The benefits and disadvantages of free gingival grafts
  • The indications and benefits of the lateral sliding flap in specific situations
  • Understand the indications and benefits of the connective tissue graft
  • Understand the role of Derma, which can be used as an alternative to a CT graft
  • The role of mucogingival surgery in implants with hard and soft tissue grafting using Derma

Biomimetic periodontology. Part 2. Intrabony lesions and hard tissue defects - Dr. Roberto Rossi

Aims and objectives:

  • Understand types of defects and prognosis of regenerative treatment for defects
  • Understand how to manage combination defects
  • How different treatment modalities and grafting materials are available for grafting
  • Dr. Rossi discusses autogenous bone, allografts, alloplasts and xenografts and the clinical applications for hard tissue defects

Biomimetic periodontology. Part 3. Hard and soft tissue defects. Analysis of the problems and possible solutions - Dr. Roberto Rossi

Aims and objectives:

  • Gain a brief overview of ridge defects and how these can be reconstructed
  • Understand ridge defects related to previous endodontic lesions, failed molars and horizontal ridges
  • Understand the Siebart’s classification of ridge deficiencies
  • Understand the cortical lamina technique for regeneration of ridge defects in a vertical and horizontal direction
  • Understand gaining bone width via horizontal augmentation
  • Understand vertical augmentation and factors that may aid in success

Biomimetic periodontology. Part 4. Perio prostho problems. Analysis of the problem and solutions - Dr. Roberto Rossi

Aims and objectives:

  • Understand how to use the implant crown to condition and remodel the gingivae

Biomimetic periodontology. Part 5. Excessive gingival display - Dr. Roberto Rossi

Aims and objectives:

  • A very brief overview of crown lengthening

Biomimetic periodontology. Part 6. Peri-implantitis. Analysis of the problem and possible solutions - Dr. Roberto Rossi

Aims and objectives:
