This presentation is not working. Please admin, can you check what is the problem?

omar mohamed - (11/19/2011 1:22 PM)

thank you dr. for your precious lecture, very informative but i have 2 questions....the 1st is what about the palatal surfaces of the teeth, do we need to make ossoeus reduction and gingivecomy palatally..the 2nd question is if we made pappilla base incision , we can't make osseuos recontouring interdentally so we may impinge on biologic width in these are, please correct me if i am wrong

Excellent video and a great review. Your surgical guides were very well prepared. -Richard

Sam, while we have used use specific lasers for hard tissue and bone reduction , the transulcular approach is very limiting to small amounts of crestal bone - -in addition as this vertical reduction is done. the bone topography gets thicker and the clinician cannot thin it out bucco-lingually . . so the problem is access, - - the pieso is very useful but again best used with at least a mini-flap - -healing research which was coauthored by Vercellotti shows accelerated healing and decreased inflammation as comparedto rotary instruments . . the issue remains access and being able to accurately visualise. .

What type of suture does Dr. Lee recommend and please describe position of sutures for to eliminate pressure on papillae

Great lecture, but is there any way that the quality of the sound can be improved?

Revisiting the Papilla in 2015 - Part 1 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.

Restoring the Pink and White Esthetics. Clinical Case Presentation
Every esthetic case is a challenge. As clinicians we need to understand and combine different treatment modalities and materials to achieve outstanding esthetic and functional results. This clinical case will demonstrate the importance of the little details, and how they influence the final result. We’ll go step by step thought the analyze, planning surgical and prosthetic procedures with focus on the key points that I find to be crucial.

Esthetic Management for Compromised Extraction Sites - Part 2 of 2 Premium Member Content

Esthetic Management for Compromised Extraction Sites - Part 2 of 2
Missing soft tissue is the main reason for compromised results in the aesthetic zone. But since the soft tissue has to be supported by a sufficient amount of bone, our focus has also to be on bone. Due to the fact that no bone-preservation technique (at the time of tooth extraction) available today, gives us the perfect result we need, augmentation procedures are still needed. Appropriate bone and soft tissue engineering in all three dimensions enhances the aesthetic performance of long-lasting restorations that blend in well and emerge from the periimplant sulcus in harmony with the neighboring teeth.

This program will clarify the 6 categories of papilla, and just how to predictably re-develop each type utilizing surgery, pink composite, orthodontics and/or porcelain. It will also demonstrate how to use The Classification Dimension chart to predictably optimize esthetic incomes with innovative treatment planning.Including pontics on at least 1 side of a papilla greatly enhance potential outcomes, simplify treatment choices and decrease treatment time. Preemptive planning is the key to rapid, successful esthetics.

The Basics of Root Coverage Surgery with Acellular Dermal Grafts: A STEP-BY-STEP Live Patient Demonstration
Soft tissue grafting is rapidly playing a larger role in restorative, esthetic, and reconstructive dentistry. While conventional grafting techniques have several limitations, newer grafting materials and techniques make it easier for patients to say "yes" to the treatment they truly need and desire. In this webinar, Dr. Wong will perform a step-by-step demonstration using Perioderm to correct multiple gingival recession defects. Soft tissue allografts are quickly becoming a "game changer" in dentistry, making optimum dentistry more than an ideal... it's a reality.

Surgical Veneer Grafting - Compensation for Natural Labial Plate Remodeling After Immediate Implant Placement

Surgical Veneer Grafting - Compensation for Natural Labial Plate Remodeling After Immediate Implant Placement
Contemporary implant therapy aims to provide highly esthetic and predictable treatment outcomes while decreasing treatment duration and complexity. The clinician must therefore be cognizant of circumstances with a predisposition toward esthetic outcomes and treatment plan accordingly. Preservation of the surrounding hard and soft tissues associated with an immediate postextraction socket implant to replace a nonrestorable tooth in the esthetic zone is one of the greatest challenges facing the dental team. A case report of a hopeless maxillary left central incisor in a patient with a thin periodontal phenotype illustrates this new surgical and prosthetic approach. Clinical, radiological, and esthetic parameters were recorded to evaluate primary treatment outcomes.

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.

The Management of Recession Midfacial to Immediately Placed Implants in the Aesthetic Zone

The Management of Recession Midfacial to Immediately Placed Implants in the Aesthetic Zone
Immediate placement and loading protocols are the most technique sensitive and at the highest risk of complication, especially in the aesthetic zone. The peri-implant tissues undergo a resorption pattern that may see exposure of parts supporting the restoration, otherwise intended to be submerged, with extreme aesthetic compromise or even complete failure of treatment. The literature is not definitive in terms of any one treatment modality to recover such a complication. Grafting the exposure by a guided bone regeneration technique and an adjunct soft tissue augmentation could well restore an unaesthetic recession exposure. Recovery of midfacial recession by soft tissue augmentation alone may be successful, as is presented hereafter.
