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

parviz roshanzamir - (9/22/2013 2:35 AM)

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

Shailesh Swami - (3/25/2013 8:12 AM)

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.

Crown Lengthening in Comprehensive Esthetic Therapy: The Complete Surgical Video A to Z
In this complete surgical video, Dr. David Wong performs an esthetic crown lengthening procedure to address a "gummy smile" as part of comprehensive therapy and smile enhancement. Dr. Wong will outline the indications for crown lengthening surgery as opposed to orthognathic correction. The surgical video will demonstrate the complete crown lengthening surgery, including incision design, flap management and instrumentation. In addition, suturing and post-operative care will also be outlined in detail.

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.

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.

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.

Laser Assisted Crown Lengthening
Clinical scenarios where crown lengthening procedures are indicated within the esthetic zone require special consideration to achieve predictable restorative results. Whether they are performed for the purposes of exposing sound tooth structure, or to enhance the appearance of the definitive restorations, these procedures must be planned to satisfy biologic requirements, while simultaneously avoiding deleterious esthetic effects. The implementation of diagnostic criteria, along with evidence-based…

A Modified Surgical/Prosthetic Approach for Optimal Single Implant Supported Crown

A Modified Surgical/Prosthetic Approach for Optimal Single Implant Supported Crown
Optimal implant placement can be achieved only if the ridge maintains its dimensions and the qllality of bone. To prevent the resorption of the ridge and to enhance the quality of regenerated bone, two main approaches have been suggested. Palt I of this article presents a modified regenerative technique - the "socket seal surgery"' (SSS). Part II will present a modified prosthetic technique - the "cervical contouring concept" (CCC) - and it will be published in the May, 1994, issue of PP&A. The…
