Acellular Dermal Matrix Graft for Lower Anterior Root Coverage

Description:
In this surgical video, Dr. Paul Petrungaro demonstrates the utilization of Acellular Dermal Matrix in the treatment of gingival labial recession of lower central incisors. Incision design and flap management, including concurrent frenectomy are shown and discussed in detail. In addition, root conditioning, dermis matrix stabilization and suturing are also demonstrated.

beautiful work, thank you.

Nice presentation. Your goals were accomplished. If you wanted to further release the frenum pull, this could always be done at a later time.

Ashwath Gowda - (12/22/2012 10:44 PM)

Dr. Petrungaro Observing the two months Post-op photo, the top of the frenum is still enjoying the same position, touching an horizontal line connecting the gingival levels/margins on #24,25 Comments: Frenectomy by itself in the first phase, could have created an excellent AESTHETICS and the procedure would have allowed to place the frenum in a better, desired position. I would imagin that further(more) relieving of frenum was restricted in this combined procedure because of a possibility of severing/hindering of blood supply to the graft-site. I still see a compromise(good or bad)in the final result, that there is a healthy, robust "scar tissue" hopefully attached to the periosteum. Comment: Disecting the attachment using surgical blade(not the laser), from periosteum to the full depth of the vestibule and suturing the entire cut ends of labial aspects of "frenum incision" may have eliminated this undesirable scarring. amgdds

Great video and technique Dr Petrungaro. Don't you consider that by cutting more muscle fibers of the frenum you would have avoided a reattachment of it? Did you ever consider to tunneling it? Great idea the using of PRP. Thank you for your great video

Emerging Perspectives in Soft Tissue Augmentation: Evolving Tools, Techniques & Materials
Soft tissue root coverage microsurgery and pontic site enhancement are frequently utilized periodontal plastic surgery techniques to create an ideal restorative frame for teeth, pontics and implants. Tunnel, Semilunar, VISTA etc. are among the new age techniques highlighted in this growing area of periodontal microsurgery. New autologous tissue harvest techniques, Allograft ACDM and Bioactive Modifiers have all changed the way we are capable of managing soft tissue deficiencies and have assisted the clinician in improving the healing qualities of these minimally invasive techniques. This lecture will cover site preparation techniques for conventional dentistry as well as prior to and after implant placement.

Developing White and Pink Esthetics through Reconstructive Surgery
This lecture/video presentation describes the comprehensive treatment of a case in which we needed to reconstruct the hard and the soft tissue after the extraction of a central incisor. The video demonstrates on of several possible surgical procedures for the reconstruction of tissue defects within the esthetic zone. Specifically, a non-resorbable membrane was utilized and combined with a modification of the pedicle connective tissue graft at the same time of the extraction.

Non-Surgical Periodontal Therapy: Decision Making in the 21st Century
Non-surgical periodontal therapy is a vital part of everyday dental practice. Since the majority of periodontal therapy is performed by general dentists and dental hygienists, it is critical that clinicians have all of the requisite skills and information needed to perform these services at the highest level possible. The purpose of this presentation is to provide the latest evidence- and practice- based information on periodontal debridement and adjunctive therapies that can improve patient outcomes. Though surgical procedures may still need to be performed in some sites, the majority of inflammatory periodontal disease can be eliminated or reduced significantly using the techniques and protocols discussed in this educational segment on non-surgical periodontal therapy.
