Questions & Comments
Maurice Salama - (9/22/2013 8:14 AM)

Parviz; When the bone is present interproximally (5mm or less to contact Tarnow 1992 JP) there is NO need to worry about the papilla. I prefer to raise the entire papilla in the flap to avid scarring and fibrous tissue healing. Thanks for your post. Dr. Salama

Dr. Salama,
won't you prefer to split the papilla rather than raising them to minimize the potential loss of papilla height ?
Regards,
Parviz

Shailesh; In this area do not do a gingivectomy only ostectomy and apically position flap. Thanks Dr. Salama

Dr Salama thank you for the excellent presentation. I have question about crown lengthening in the non esthetic zone. I have a patient with Sjogren`s syndrome who has multiple cavities at or below the gum levels. How can you do a crown lengthening at the lingual aspect of the mandibular molars for e.g. where there is no keratinised tissue left?

Maurice Salama - (3/3/2013 6:32 PM)

John; Thanks. I utilize only the PLUG of PRGF not the liquid for extraction sockets. It does set up. Yes, Vegas was a huge success. Hope to see you soon. Regards Dr. Salama

I use prgp for my implant/socket preservation. Does it not set up. Do you aspirate it in some sort of syringe to deliver it to the mouth. When during the procedure do you draw the blood and how much working time do you have? Nice video and cudos for a great Las Vegas meeting. John Bishop

Maurice Salama - (2/29/2012 12:32 PM)

Jan; Thanks. I prefer PRGF or PRF blood borne bioactive modifiers over recombinant forms of bioactive growth factors such as emdogain and Gem-21 but I do utilze them when I must.
No Preidex just warm salt water starting at day 3.
good luck Dr. Salama

Thanks for the short video. I understand the Enamel matrix protein use in periodontal surgery. What is your rationale for using Emdogain in these cases rather than let's say PRP? Have you noticed a difference in healing (how the tissue looks to you) using Emdogain vs nothing? Do you put the patient on 0.12% CHX afterwards while using Emdogain? Jan

Excellent Video. Very informative and educational. Many thanks, Dr. Salama.

Maximizing Esthetics with Minimally Invasive Surgery Around Implants
Soft tissue deficiencies around implants impact esthetics and often lead to escalating problems. Early recognition and intervention with minimally invasive soft tissue surgery reduces the risk of undesirable sequellae associated with conventional surgical approaches around implants. The application of a minimally invasive soft tissue grafting method will be shown for treatment of soft tissue problems around implants and the indications for use of this technique will be outlined.

Prosthetic Soft Tissue Development From Single to Full Arch Reconstruction
In addition to surgical intervention is the creation of the specific emergence profile that is essential in the aesthetic zone. The emergence profile composed of 2 parts, the abutment and the subgingival part of the crown. The shape of abutment can be individually shaped so that it gives natural appearance and varies individually (depending on the depth, angulation and diameter of the implant). Sometimes it even dictates the implant position. From a surgical perspective, soft tissue height, position and thickness need to be diagnosed and corrected when needed. From the prosthetic point of view, the emergence profile has to be created to mimic the natural appearance and maintained over time in respect to the biological changes. The course teaches step by step how to be successful with implant prosthetics from single tooth, partially edentulous to full arch reconstruction.

The Critical “Pink” Interface in Esthetic Dentistry—A Cross-Disciplinary Approach: Options, Limitations, and Solutions
This program is a perspective into how cross- disciplinary interface planning has become and integral part of clinical esthetic dentistry, in particular implant diagnostics. Today it is essential to combine “white” tooth esthetics with “pink” gingival aspects. Understanding the individual prosthetic, surgical, and biologic limitations is part of innovative treatment-planning protocols developed in an approach to provide, simplify, and expedite minimally invasive limited therapy. Preemptive CBCT and 3D CAD/CAM planning of soft and hard tissue procedures, implant placement, ridge reduction, and restorative design now utilize new innovative protocols for the entire restoration from top to bottom - implant, abutment, and restoration - and the interfaces in between.

Soft Tissue Enhancement After Implant Placement

Soft Tissue Enhancement After Implant Placement
Soft tissue management is one of the key factors for successful implant restoration. Esthetics can be strongly influenced by the conditions of the peri-implant tissue. Substantial knowledge of tissue anatomy and biology is a fundamental prerequisite for surgical success. The present chapter introduces different techniques to improve the appearance of the soft tissue after implant placement. Cases of repositioned flaps, FGGs, and CTGs are presented along with biological considerations. It was our intention to present various indications and options to the clinician to achieve an increased amount of peri-implant KG or connective tissue thickness.

The Aesthetic Smile: Diagnosis and Treatment

The Aesthetic Smile: Diagnosis and Treatment
Until recently, dentists' and the public's concept of dental aesthetics was necessarily limited to alterations of the teeth themselves. Dentists concerned themselves with changing the position, the shape and the color of the teeth -basically restoring missing units or enhancing those already present. For the most part the dentist was forced to accept the pre-existing relationship between the three components of the smile; the teeth, the gingival scaffold and the lips.
