Wayne Moesching- very good explanation of technique and rational for doing it.

Luis Quiros - (4/2/2018 10:43 AM)

Do the presenter answer personally to the many questions I see posted?

Jannie Tromp - (3/26/2018 3:05 PM)

Dear Prof Zucchelli, I am a GP dentist and have done many free gingival grafts over the years. Most successful but always tended to leave a scar due to the fact that I have not removed the epithelium at all. Thank you for a very informative lecture. Indeed very helpful. Please could you provide me of the following information: 1. What multi filament sutures do you use for grafting? Any specific brand name and where to find it? 2. Where can I find 24% EDTA. Cannot trace it in the UK. Thank you. I cannot find Part 2 of your lecture. Will it be available or is it available and just that I could not find it on Dental XP? Best wishes Dr Jannie Tromp (U.K.) jannie.tromp@btinternet.com

Great information, thank you. Do you recommend a stent to cover the palate during the healing phase?

NIKOLAOS GREVENITIS - (2/25/2018 3:57 AM)

Brilliant video! !!so explanatory! !!

KM - (2/8/2018 9:08 PM)

will the palate repair itself in the same way or as well if the superficial layer is removed as opposed to the middle layer? let's say we would like to work on 4 quadrants, obviously 2 at a time, but how long will you wait before reharvesting from the palate at the same site. and will you expect better secondary tissue if you had taken only the middle layer of tissue the first time or only the superficial layer? or will the newly regrown tissue be about the same in both cases? thank you, kelly mayer

Having subscribed to the Zuchhelli channel, this is one of many excellent presentations on soft-tissue management. Incredibly detailed-oriented learning experience.

Excellent explanation!!! Thank you!!

Really great presentation and masterful micro-surgical tissue handling.I really learned a lot. Thank you for sharing

Soft Tissue Management Around Dental Implants
Soft tissue management is critical to the long-term success of dental implants. A number of soft tissue grafting technique are available to be utilized at various stages of implant therapy. Whether the goal of treatment is to maximize esthetics or to establish health and longevity, a variety of treatment options exist for patients.

The "Robin Hood" Approach to Tissue Engineering
Autogenous tissue is still a gold standard for augmentation procedures. There are great sources of patient’s own tissue, often in adjacent areas, that can be utilized. The soft tissue can be moved, flipped, rolled, pediculated - in order to take from the rich sites and give to the poor ones. A novel approach for the wound closure after ridge augmentation and/or implant placement in lateral maxilla will be presented.

Positive & Negative Factors in Stem Cells & Wound Healing: Solutions for Long Term Stability Premium Member Content

Positive & Negative Factors in Stem Cells & Wound Healing: Solutions for Long Term Stability
The main factor for soft and hard tissue healing is the speed and quality of new vascularization. This lecture will present all the positive and negative factors who control the angiogenesis, blood supply and bone metabolism: -Biological factors as vit. D and cholesterol have to be checked before the surgery -The management of the flaps with sutures is one the main factor for the bone and soft tissue maintenance.. -The soft brushing technique is a new technique which increases the flap without periosteal incision nor bleeding. -Careful Implant placement without too much torque, specially in cortical bone or grafted bone at the re-entry.. -The A-PRF liquid and i-PRF are solutions to reduce the mobility of the granules (sticky bone) with an improvement of angiogenesis The use of growth factors is a stimulation of angiogenesis. The prevention of the negative factors will allow us to achieve the long term stability.

Managing Esthetic Implant Complications Premium Member Content

Managing Esthetic Implant Complications
Dental implant success today is judged not only by osseointegration but also by bone, tissue stability and of course long term esthetic results. Cosmetic predictability can often be difficult to attain, and esthetic implant failures can be multifactorial and patient management issues. Once esthetic implant failures occur, many cannot be fully corrected. Some complications must be addressed by an interdisciplinary dental team. In this summary of case reports, surgical considerations are provided, including cases of facial asymmetry/recession due to facial implant placement or bone loss resulting from technique/treatment failures, as well as papillary deficiencies. Restorative considerations for correcting failures are also discussed.

Esthetic Correction of Gingival Recession Using a Modified Tunnel Technique and an Acellular Dermal Connective Tissue Allograft

Esthetic Correction of Gingival Recession Using a Modified Tunnel Technique and an Acellular Dermal Connective Tissue Allograft
Esthetic correction of gingival recession is an important goal of periodontal therapy. This article describes a surgical technique that combines a modified tunnel technique and an acellular dermal connective tissue allograft. With the aid of vertical incisions, a tunnel is created under the buccal mucosa of the affected tooth. These incisions enable easy access for graft placement and create mobility for gingival coronal positioning. The use of an accelular dermal connective tissue allograft eliminates the need for a surgical palatal donor site. This minimizes post-surgical complications.

Achieving Predictable Connective Tissue Root Coverage

Achieving Predictable Connective Tissue Root Coverage
Gingival recession creates esthetic issues. These issues may be corrected from a restomtive perspective by the placement of composite resin or ceramic over the exposed root. But this approach often results in a gingival-incisal length that does not blend esthetically with tire adjacent teeth. Often accompanying the gingival recession is a decrease in the band of attached gingiva. The wider the band of attached gingiva, the more stabIe the long-term result Therefore, surgical correction of the recession…

The Management of Recession Midfacial to Immediately Placed Implants in the Aesthetic Zone

The Management of Recession Midfacial to Immediately Placed Implants in the Aesthetic Zone
Immediate placement and loading protocols are the most technique sensitive and at the highest risk of complication, especially in the aesthetic zone. The peri-implant tissues undergo a resorption pattern that may see exposure of parts supporting the restoration, otherwise intended to be submerged, with extreme aesthetic compromise or even complete failure of treatment. The literature is not definitive in terms of any one treatment modality to recover such a complication. Grafting the exposure by a guided bone regeneration technique and an adjunct soft tissue augmentation could well restore an unaesthetic recession exposure. Recovery of midfacial recession by soft tissue augmentation alone may be successful, as is presented hereafter.
