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

Modern Implant Concepts in the Esthetic Zone
Managing aesthetic zone with dental implants is one of the most challenging and demanding treatments in dentistry due to biological limitations. From Sockets type I to healed ridges with hard and soft tissue deficiencies, everyday clinicians may face different situations to manage in the aesthetic zone. When we are talking about rebuilt and have long term success, autogenous hard and soft tissue still are the gold standard as the Socket shield technique promises to be to prevent bucal collapse in Immediate Implants. During the lecture the author will systematize how to face each different clinical situation, utilizing different autogenous tissues combined with a micro surgical approach, in order to have the best healing patterns and scar-less surgery.

Negative Factors for Soft & Hard Tissue Maintenance Premium Member Content

Negative Factors for Soft & Hard Tissue Maintenance
Maintaining the bone is the most difficult challenge in implantology (bone grafted or native bone around implants). If a tissue want to live long, it has to follow 2 conditions: The first condition is to organize a full blood supply.. However, it’s not enough. The solution for the long term stability is to try to organize the stability of the blood supply.. by the respect of several biologic conditions. Almost of these conditions are explained in this lecture. We introduce here the new concept to avoid the reduction of blood supply by the periosteal incision: the soft brushing technique is the first technique which allows a very large increase of the flap without any incision: the flap closure without tension but without any incision.

Fibrin Assisted Soft Tissue Promotion (FASTP) - A New Perspective in Periodontal Plastic Surgery
Soft tissue recession around teeth and implants is an epidemic problem in the field of dentistry. A predictable and long-term soft tissue augmentation outcome is primarily dependent on proper diagnosis, prognosis and treatment planning. Harvesting limitations of autogenous tissue from the palate represent a true challenge when treating patients with multiple recessions or gingival deformities around teeth and dental implants. The Advanced Platelet Rich Fibrin (APRF) and injectable platelet-rich fibrin (iPRF) are promising tissue promoters that can be a suitable alternative option.

Antimicrobial Effect of a Single Dose of Amoxicillin on the Oral Microbiota

Antimicrobial Effect of a Single Dose of Amoxicillin on the Oral Microbiota
Amoxicillin is commonly used in oral surgery for antimicrobial prophylaxis against surgical-site infection and bacteremia because of its effect on oral streptococci. The aim of this study was to determine whether amoxicillin reaches the break-point concentrations in saliva and has any effect on the salivary microbiota, colonizing bacteria on mucosal membranes and on the gingival crevice after a single dose of amoxicillin. A single dose given as prophylaxis to prevent a surgical-site infection results in a significant reducing effect on the oral streptococcal microflora in the gingival crevice and may have an impact on bacteria spreading into tissues and the bacteria of streptococci.

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.

Changes in Soft Tissue Dimensions Following Three Different Techniques of Stage-Two Surgery: A Case Series Report
The aim of this case report is to compare the resilts of the increase in keratinized mucosa using three different techniques of stage-two surgery. Thirty-two patients with one to eight dental implants who received prosthetic rehabilitation of the maxilla were included. Patients were divided into three groups based on preoperative anatomical considerations. Stage-two surgery was performed using wither the apically repositioned flap, the roll flap, or an apically repositioned flap combined with a connective tissue graft.
