The Socket-Shield Technique: First Histological, Clinical, and Volumetrical Observations after Separation of the Buccal Tooth Segment – A Pilot Study
The “socket-shield technique” has shown its potential in preserving buccal tissues. However, front teeth often
have to be extracted due to vertical fractures in buccolingual direction. It has not yet been investigated if the socket-shield
technique can only be used with intact roots or also works with a modified shield design referring to vertical fracture lines.
The aim of this study was to assess histologically, clinically, and volumetrically the effect of separating the
remaining buccal root segment in two pieces before immediate implant placement.
Applied Techniques for Predictable Suture Placement Part 3
Standard protocols for suturing have been developed for the positioning and securing of surgical flaps to promote optimal healing. Parts 1 and 2 of this article discussed the indications for a variely of suturing techniques, including the periosteal suture technique, the simple look modification of interrupted suture technique, and several continuous suture techniques. Vertical mattress sutures, coronally repositioned mattress sutures, horizontal mattress sutures, and vertical sling mattress sutures…
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.
Diagnosis and Management of a Maxillary Periapical Cyst
In this video, Dr. H. Ryan Kazemi discusses diagnosis and treatment for a large maxillary periapical cyst. He presents the use of CBCT for accurate diagnostics, flap design, cyst enucleation technique, and bone grafting.
Lasers in Contemporary Implant and Restorative Dentistry: A Microscopic Perspective
In the lecture, we will discuss the role of lasers after the implant has been placed. We will demonstrate how it can be used to improve healing. It can be used during uncovery. It can be used in periimplant tissue removal, and even in the exciting world of periimplantitis. Clinical cases will be presented showing hard-tissue lasers being used for decortication as an alternative to traditional means. We will focus on why an electrosurge may be damaging to your implants, and may cause you more problems than benefits, and why a diode-laser may be your treatment of choice.
Minimally Invasive Techniques in the Treatment of Implant Complications and the Deficient Ridge
With more implants being placed then ever before the issues related to peri-implantitis, bone and tissue recession and failure of implants is being a dominant area of concern. This presentation will highlight some minimally invasive approaches to manage these complications as well as the expanding role of bioactive materials and techniques to enhance deficient ridges through expansion and short implants.
The Innovative New Lip Stabilization Technique (LipStaT): Treating a Gummy Smile
There are various etiologies for a “gummy smile.” A new classification with appropriate management based on the etiology will be discussed. The innovative and minimally invasive LipStaT Procedure to correct a high and gummy smile in patients with vertical maxillary excess, short and hypermobile upper lip will be presented and discussed in detail.
The Use of Digital Technology for Patient Care
In this presentation, we will analyze different cases, highlighting the operational differences that they have developed over time, with the increasing knowledge of the new materials and the daily developing of the new software's. It is also described how traditional materials and techniques have been replaced with other innovative new technologies, and how the results obtaining with these are systematic and overlapping times better than traditional one.
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.
