Suturing Principles - Material Selection
The primary objective of dental suturing is to position and secure surgical flaps to promote optimal healing The evolution of su turing materials has enabled decreased potential of postoperative infection and increased successful closure with minimal difficulty. Accurate flap opposition contributes to patient comfort and hemostas is, reduces the wound to be repaired, and prevents unnecessary bone destruction.
Mucosal Coronally Positioned Flap for the Management of Excessive Gingival Display in the Presence of Hypermobility of the Upper Lip and Vertical Maxillary Excess: A Case Report
Excessive gingival display is a frequent
finding that can occur because of various
intraoral or extraoral etiologies. This report describes
the use of a mucosal coronally positioned flap for the
management of a gummy smile associated with vertical
maxillary excess and hypermobility of the upper
lip. For patients desiring a less invasive
alternative to orthognathic surgery, the mucosal coronally
positioned flap is a viable alternative. We demonstrate
short-term successful use of this technique
for the management of excessive gingival display in
the presence of slight vertical maxillary excess and
hypermobility of the upper lip. Long-term follow-up
studies are needed to determine stability of the results.
Human Histologic Evaluation of Anorganic Bovine Bone Mineral Combined with Recombinant Human Platelet-Derived Growth Factor BB in Maxillary Sinus Augmentation: Case Series Study
The objective of this study was to examine the potential for improved bone regenerative outcomes in maxillary sinus augmentation procedures using platelet-derived growth factor BB and anorganic bovine bone mineral.
NEW PRGF-Endoret Protocol (Platelet Rich in Growth Factors)
PRGF®-Endoret Technology is based on the activation of the patient's own platelets for the stimulation and acceleration of tissue healing and regeneration. It is a technology that allows the use of the organism's own resources with extraordinary results in many pathologies, effectively regenerating tissues without side effects and notably reducing the recovery period of fractures, muscular and tendinous injuries, and surgical interventions. Dr. Maurice Salama’s assistant, Charlene Bennett, will elaborate in detail describing the step-by step PRGF preparation and how it can be utilized clinically.
3D Imaging and its Applications in Oral Implantology
In this interactive video we will discuss the basics of 3D imaging, compare 2D Vs. 3D imaging modalities, Cone Beam CT Vs. Fan Beam regular CT and then introduce some interesting applications in oral implantology and clinical examples to illustrate the techniques and benefits of Computer Aided Implantology in the every day clinical practice
A new tip of the week!
The Holy Grail of True Regeneration - Fibronectin
This webinar will involve a histologic study review about the key role of fibronectin, "Nature's Nectar" & why it is the Holy Grail of true regeneration. Come follow a real Professor's histologic journey in search of the Raiders of the Lost Attachment and how to get it back.
Controlled Ridge Splitting (CRS)
To demonstrate a new technique of controlled ridge splitting (CRS) in severely atrophied maxillary cases as an alternative to autogenous block graft. Twenty cases were completed using a controlled ridge splitting (CRS) technique with a total of 65 implants were placed in severely atrophied Maxillae and followed after the implants were loaded.
Results: The CRS technique was used in very complex cases, where the alternative method will be autogenous block graft. A total of 65 tapered implants were placed. The implants diameter ranged between 3.25-5mm with a length ranged between 10-13mm. The implants were restored and were followed for 1-3 years. All implants achieved osseointegration and continue to have successful prostheses. Conclusion: The CRS is a predictable treatment option and could be a good alternative to autogenous block grafts is severely atrophic maxillae.
TMD, Parafunction and Occlusion for Natural Teeth and Implants: Diagnosis and Management
This presentation will address the basic science related to mechanics of the head and neck and the interrelationship with everyday clinical dentistry directly related to occlusion involving implants and the natural dentition. Alternative strategies for the management of parafunction and TMJ related issues will also be outlined.
