Pre-Prosthetic Planning for Periodontal Surgery: A Technique Report
Roberts, A. / Laird, W.R.E. / Murphy, P. / Chapple, I.L.C.
This manuscript is a technical report to illustrate the pre-prosthetic surgical planning of a case of gingival angioedema, where substantial soft tissue removal was anticipated at the time of surgery and the periodontal-restorative team wished to provide predictable and good quality denture-bearing tissues to facilitate the insertion of an immediate maxillary prosthesis. A surgical model was created and a mock surgical procedure performed, providing the laboratory technician with a close representation of the planned outcome, on which to fabricate the immediate prosthesis. The clinical planning and technical procedures are illustrated and the definitive surgery documented in a step-wise manner, to allow visualisation of the overall case management from pre-surgical planning up to completion of surgery.
