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

Jan Bublik653 - (2/29/2012 6:34 AM)

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.

Revisiting the Papilla in 2016 - Part 2 of 2 Premium Member Content

Revisiting the Papilla in 2016 - Part 2 of 2
In dental esthetics the regeneration of a compromised papilla , remains the most complex aspect of any reconstructive endeavor. The original 5mm Rule was found to exist only for a papilla bordered by 2 teeth and was expanded into a classification of 6 Types dependent on alternative adjacent support.e. implants or pontics.

Papilla Regeneration in Patients with Gummy Smile Premium Member Content

Papilla Regeneration in Patients with Gummy Smile
A lost interdental papilla is difficult to regenerate. Only a few successful case reports have been published and there are no studies reporting a predictable technique to reconstruct the papilla. In this presentation we talk about the biological determinants of gingival papilla. We show different clinical cases ranging from simple cases, where papilla preservation techniques are applied, to complex cases of patients with gingival smile where we apply papilla regeneration techniques.

Tissue Responsible Dentistry - Part 1: Contemporary Concepts in Hard & Soft Tissue Management in Implant Dentistry
Implant dentistry in the esthetic zone is highly challenging. In recent years several studies, well defined approaches have been published on how to achieve pleasing outcomes. We must understand the biology of extraction sites and different treatment options for preserving or even reconstructing bony structures for predictable implant insertion. This clinical and evidence based presentation emphasizes the importance of proper 3-dimensional implant surgery and how soft tissue grafting can effect the final end result. There will be a special focus on immediate extraction site placements and surrounding tissue management as well.

Prosthetic Soft Tissue Development From Single to Full Arch Reconstruction Premium Member Content

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.

A Review of Clinical Applications for Soft Tissue Allografts & Autografts: Solutions for Teeth, Implants, and Dentures Premium Member Content

A Review of Clinical Applications for Soft Tissue Allografts & Autografts: Solutions for Teeth, Implants, and Dentures
The presentation focuses on the clinical applications for acellular dermal graft (ADG) materials. ADGs have been commonly presented and discussed to provide solutions for treating gingival recession. Compared to autogenous grafts, they have the advantage of minimizing pain, discomfort, and surgery time for patients by avoiding an intraoral donor site such as the palate. In addition to treating gingival recession, ADGs also have uses in bone grafting surgeries such as socket grafting and ridge augmentations (GBR) when they are utilized as a barrier membrane. Finally, ADGs can be combined with bone grafting materials to aid in the augmentation of edentulous ridges to aid denture support. While this last application is less common, it's use is worthy of discussion.

Influence of Thin Mucosal Tissues on Crestal Bone Stability Around Implants With Platform Switching: A 1-year Pilot Study
The aim of this pilot study was to determine what effect thin mucosal tissues can have on crestal bone stability around implants with platform switching. Within the limitations of this pilot study it can be concluded that implants with platform switching did not preserve crestal bone better in comparison with implants with traditional implant-abutment connection if, at the time of implant placement, thin mucosal tissues were present.

Maxillary Anterior Papilla Display During Smiling: A Clinical Study of the Interdental Smile Line

Maxillary Anterior Papilla Display During Smiling: A Clinical Study of the Interdental Smile Line
The purpose of this research was to quantify the presence or absence of interdental papillae during maximum smiling in a patient population aged 10 to 89 years. The visual display of interdental papillae during maximum smiling occurred 380 of the 420 patients examined in this study, equivalent to a 91% occurrence rate. Eighty seven percent of all patients categorized as having a low gingival smile line were found to display the interdental papillae upon smiling. Differences were noted for individual age groups according to the decade of life as well as a trend toward decreasing papillary display with increasing age. The importance of interdental papillae display during dynamic smiling should not be left undiagnosed since it is visible in over 91% of older patients and in 87% of patients with a low gingival smile line, representing a common and important esthetic element that needs to be assessed during smile analysis of the patient.
