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.

Soft Tissue Management - The Pink Contribution to Achieving Esthetic and Long Lasting Smiles
Today's patients expectations and demands, seek for high aesthetic an long-lasting treatments. For this reason, soft tissue management is often required to provide thick soft tissues around implants and natural teeth, therefore it must be carefully planned and integrated at the treatment plan. Being the palate our primary choice as soft tissue's donor area, in this lecture is also presented a simple and effective way to reduce patients morbidity after harvesting the palatal mucosa, the PRGF-ENDORET Graft.

Papilla Management in a Severe Periodontal and Cosmetic Deformity; The Wedge Buccal Gingival Margin Graft
Bone defects and periodontal disease can create challenging defects in the anterior area. When we have such severe defects as the one presented here, it´s essential to plan in advance and to be sure of what is possible to correct with bone grafting and with soft tissue management. The key question in this clinical case is to be able to place the soft tissue graft exactly where you want it to heal. In our clinical practice we use routinely PRGF ENDORET grafts, not only as vehicle for particulate graft transportation, but also as a biological enhancer of both osteointegration and soft tiss

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.

Critical Concepts in Implant and Gingival Surgery; Flap Designs, Suture Techniques and Soft Tissue Management
This presentation by the Troeltzsch Brothers features the fundamentals of surgical procedures in the oral cavity. Highlighted are the basic concepts we all must integrate into our daily clinical practice. A discussion of the essential anatomic guidelines as they relate to flap design options and indications are emphasized. Furthermore, material selection, sutures and techniques of wound closures are clearly addressed. Critical solutions to common surgical complications are also described. This lecture is intended for surgical beginners as well as experienced clinicians who want to update their surgical knowledge. These fundamentals are also very popular in the hands-on courses given by the Troeltzsch brothers.

From Extraction to Prosthetic Restoration: Considerations for the Esthetic Zone Premium Member Content

From Extraction to Prosthetic Restoration: Considerations for the Esthetic Zone
This webinar will highlight surgical and restorative techniques to accomplish predictable outcomes in the esthetic zone with implant therapy. Treatment modalities will be demonstrated with high quality photography and case series discussion. Surgical modalities presented will include ridge preservation, the current evidence on the use of growth factors such as PRP and hr-PDGF bb. Also timing of implant placement as well as soft and hard tissue augmentation will be discussed. Special emphasis will be placed on immediate provisionalization of implants to accomplish optimal peri-implant mucosa architecture. Techniques to transfer provisional emergence profile to the final restoration will be presented.

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.

Fundamentally Changing Soft Tissue Grafting

Fundamentally Changing Soft Tissue Grafting
Soft tissue augmentation procedures to increase the existing zone or create a new zone of keratinized tissue have been classically, and are routinely, performed using the patient's palate as the donor material. This article describes the simplistic use of a periodontal material that can be used for soft tissue augmentation procedures without using the patient's own palate to procure the donor tissue. This periodontal material is an acellular dermal allograft that has been used extensively in medicine.…

Predictable Gingival Correction of Passive Eruption

Predictable Gingival Correction of Passive Eruption
While the need to maintain a dry operative field has traditionally caused complications during various soft tissue surgical procedures, the use of bipolar electrosurgical techniques can eliminate the need to maintain a dry field, thus increasing the clinician’s ability to deliver predictable, long-term results. This case presentation describes how to determine the presence of passive eruption, treatment plan its correction, and surgically alter the gingiva to provide a more aesthetic smile. This…
