Summary:

The primary components of every suturing needle include the attachment end, body, and point. Traditional complications caused by threading have been eliminated by the advent of needles that are permanently attached to the suturing material. The suturing procedure is further simplified by the attached and press-fitted end of the needle (swaged) that enables the clinician to draw it through the tissue with less trauma.

Preserving Needle Edges During Dental Suturing
The evolution of suture materials has presented today's clinician with numerous alternatives when performing dental suturing. Contemporary sutures not only eliminate some of the difficulties that the surgeon may have encountered previously during closure, but also decrease the potential of postoperative infection and help provide optimal healing. Despite the sophistication of the suture materials (ie, Perma Sharp, Hu-Friedy, Chicago, IL) and surgical techniques now available, closing a wound still involves…

Applied Techniques for Predictable Suture Placement Part 1
Surgical suture positioning is crucial to ensure adequate healing and can be accomplished using a variety of suturing methods. Sutures should generally be placed distal to the last tooth and within each interproximal space and should always be inserted through the more mobile flap first The flaps should not be blanched during the tying procedure, and closure should not be positioned closer than 2 mm to 3 mm from the edge of the flap, in order to prevent tearing during the inevitable swelling that…

The Evolution of Guided Surgery and Case Management
The innovation in assisted implant surgery is constantly increasing. This success is due to the fact that guided surgery provides a reliable therapeutic solution. The use of these techniques is not only interesting for implant-supported rehabilitation by immediate loading but also for tissues supporting implants by insuring the best emergence profile.

Socket Preservation vs Root Submergence Technique Premium Member Content

Socket Preservation vs Root Submergence Technique
Socket preservation has been a common technique used in dentistry in order to maintain the volume ridge when the extraction is performed. New techniques and materials are used today in order to improve the outcomes like root submergence technique developed by Dr Maurice Salama and his team, where we submerge the root keeping intact the PDL and bundle bone responsible for maintaining the original bone architecture. Here both techniques are compared and described.

Is There One or More Reasons to Optimize the PRF & PRP Protocols? Future Trends in Dentistry, Orthopedics and Facial Aesthetics
The “Advanced” PRF (A-PRF) and “Injectable” PRF (I-PRF) protocols were designed with this new concept. Indications are numerous in all medical fields where we need regeneration: bone, cartilage, skin etc... However, the use of growth factors is not a guarantee of long term stability, as they are active only at the beginning of the process. Numerous rules of tissue engineering have to be applied to maintain the regenerated bone through an adequate blood supply: this lecture is an enlightenment on the biological and mechanical conditions for long term stability of the bone: “grafted bone” or “bone around implants”.
