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.

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

fantastic video and thank you

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

A Novel Surgical-Prosthetic Approach to Optimize Peri-Implant Tissue Esthetics
The achievement of an aesthetic implant-supported restoration is a constant challenge to the restorative dentist. Due to the circular shape of the implant and its smaller diameter, when compared to the root of a natural tooth, a dilemma inevitably occurs of how to construct an artificial crown that will imitate the natural tooth crown form. The appearance of the surrounding soft tissue is of major importance, and various techniques have been developed to guide its topography. The Marginal Migration Concept is a technique that helps the clinician in order to achieve a long-term predictable outcome in the Aesthetic zone by enhancing the surrounding tissues. The lecture will show step-by-step clinical procedures from diagnostic models through surgery with immediate provisional restoration therapy to the definitive restorations.

Acellular Dermal Grafts in the Correction of Gingival Recession: Discovering the Possibilities
Autogenous connective tissue grafts from the palate have been the gold standard for surgically correcting gingival recession for decades. With the advent of newer soft (and hard) tissue allografts, grafting procedures are increasingly predictable, quick, effective, and less painful for patients. In this presentation, follow the evolution of root coverage surgery from autogenous grafts to the more contemporary alternatives of today. Discover how these newer materials are making it easier for patients to say "yes" and how their results can impact the level of esthetics, periodontal health and predictable restorative dentistry our profession can deliver.

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.

Alveolar Ridge Preservation and Reconstruction

Alveolar Ridge Preservation and Reconstruction
Periodontal plastic surgery procedures designed to reconstruct deformed, partially edentulous residual ridges were introduced to the dental profession between 1971 and 1986. They have been revised and refined to their current state of development, where they now occupy a major place in the reconstructive armamentarium. Before these concepts were developed, it was generally believed that it was impossible to surgically reconstruct deformities in the partially edentulous ridge. Deformities were filled…

Surgical Crown Lengthening in a Population With Human Immunodeficiency Virus: A Retrospective Analysis

Surgical Crown Lengthening in a Population With Human Immunodeficiency Virus: A Retrospective Analysis
This report investigates the outcome of CLS procedures performed at an urban dental school in a population of individuals with HIV. Specifically, this retrospective clinical analysis evaluates the healing response after crown lengthening surgery (CLS). Of the 21 patients with HIV examined after CLS, none had postoperative complications, such as delayed healing, infection, or prolonged bleeding. Variations in viral load, CD4 cell count, smoking, platelets, and neutrophils did not impact surgical healing. In addition, variations in medication regimens (highly active anti-retroviral therapy; on pro-tease inhibitors; no medications had an impact. The results of this retrospective analysis show the absence of postoperative complications after CLS in this population with HIV. Additional investigation into this area will help health care practitioners increase the range of surgical services provided to this group of patients.
