Incisal migration of soft tissue around teeth and implants - Dr. Charles Goodacre

In this video, Dr. Charles Goodacre discusses incisal migration of soft tissue around teeth and implants. Stressing the importance of the contour, shape and smoothness of the prosthodontic restoration on teeth and implants and how these can impact the soft tissues. 

Aims and objectives:

Gain an understanding of incisal migration of soft tissue around teeth and implants, taking into consideration:

  • Causes of poor gingival responses during prosthodontic treatment

  • Benefits of the S shaped cervical contour for crowns
  • A series of case examples where over contoured crowns can lead to periodontal tissue inflammation and how this can be improved and corrected
  • An overview of incisal migration of soft tissue in relation to dental implants

Tooth retention through RCT or tooth replacement using implants or FPD's - Dr. Charles Goodacre

In this video, Dr. Charles Goodacre discusses treatment planning - saving or extracting teeth can be a challenging decision, with various factors to be considered to include: survival rates, treatment fees and cost effectiveness, ethical considerations, approximation of the ideal, biological and mechanical factors, patient specific factors and other considerations.

Aims and objectives:

  • Gain an overview of factors that are helpful in treatment planning for extracting or saving teeth
  • A comparison of dental implants vs endodontics
  • Success and survival rates of fixed partial dentures
  • Factors that lead to failure of fixed partial dentures
  • Considered treatment costs and ethical considerations
  • The benefits of maintaining teeth in terms of cost-effectiveness
  • The benefits of implants compared to fixed partial dentures
  • The role of periodontal biotype on success
  • Predictable papillae preservation and data
  • How to achieve papillae infill, and where to consider infill may not happen, especially in immediate implants
  • Multiple adjacent implants and the difficulty of regenerating papillae
  • Should teeth be treated periodontally or extracted and replaced with implants
