Kastytis; No I currently utilize PRGF and PRF. Thanks Dr. Salama

Kastytis Zymantas - (6/3/2018 10:30 AM)

Are you still using PRP?

Maurice Salama - (5/22/2018 3:54 PM)

Jack; thank you, obviously an older video and back when I had longer hair as opposed to hair "no longer". Fortunately, the procedure stands the test of time and is still performed in the same manner. regards Dr. Salama

Jack Nagrani - (5/22/2018 3:13 PM)

Absolutely stellar! You make it look all too easy. (Also, digging the hair :-) Jack

outstanding..as always Thank you! barry

Maurice Salama - (11/4/2016 6:12 PM)

Brad; Always collagen (Oratape) and periacryl from Salvin for me....I would use the liquid PRF before I place the collagen. See you soon in Brazil....going to be the very best course yet!! regards Dr. S

Brad Fulkerson - (11/4/2016 11:59 AM)

Excellent demonstration! Are you ever placing a PRF membrane into the donor site or do you always prefer Collagen? Thank you Dr. Salama -Brad

Kevin; Full time for 48 hours, then only when eating. Regards Dr. Salama

A Microsurgical Approach in Hard and Soft Tissue Grafting in Post Extraction Sockets
Minimally invasive surgery has demanded us to develop innovative tools and techniques and instruments to reduce postoperative complications and enhance faster and better healing in regeneration and reconstruction in hard and soft tissue grafting , especially in the esthetic zone. This case report shows the use of microsurgical approach and intervention to reconstruct the post extraction socket and the soft tissue around it.

The “Semilunar” Graft Technique in Periodontal Plastic Surgery: Revision and Retreatment of Anterior Recession Defects.
In this lecture and video based Case Report, a patient with multiple recession defects in the Maxillary Anterior Region who was first treated with Tunnel Approach and ACDM grafts reveals breakdown of the result at 3 years in the area of the Maxillary Left Central Incisor with further recession and erosion of the root. The Semi-Lunar Approach is highlighted as a minimally invasive microsurgical approach to this situation. Incision design, instrumentation and suturing are highlighted. Post-op results are displayed.

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.

Positive & Negative Factors in Stem Cells & Wound Healing: Solutions for Long Term Stability Premium Member Content

Positive & Negative Factors in Stem Cells & Wound Healing: Solutions for Long Term Stability
The main factor for soft and hard tissue healing is the speed and quality of new vascularization. This lecture will present all the positive and negative factors who control the angiogenesis, blood supply and bone metabolism: -Biological factors as vit. D and cholesterol have to be checked before the surgery -The management of the flaps with sutures is one the main factor for the bone and soft tissue maintenance.. -The soft brushing technique is a new technique which increases the flap without periosteal incision nor bleeding. -Careful Implant placement without too much torque, specially in cortical bone or grafted bone at the re-entry.. -The A-PRF liquid and i-PRF are solutions to reduce the mobility of the granules (sticky bone) with an improvement of angiogenesis The use of growth factors is a stimulation of angiogenesis. The prevention of the negative factors will allow us to achieve the long term stability.

Antimicrobial Effect of a Single Dose of Amoxicillin on the Oral Microbiota

Antimicrobial Effect of a Single Dose of Amoxicillin on the Oral Microbiota
Amoxicillin is commonly used in oral surgery for antimicrobial prophylaxis against surgical-site infection and bacteremia because of its effect on oral streptococci. The aim of this study was to determine whether amoxicillin reaches the break-point concentrations in saliva and has any effect on the salivary microbiota, colonizing bacteria on mucosal membranes and on the gingival crevice after a single dose of amoxicillin. A single dose given as prophylaxis to prevent a surgical-site infection results in a significant reducing effect on the oral streptococcal microflora in the gingival crevice and may have an impact on bacteria spreading into tissues and the bacteria of streptococci.

Achieving Predictable Connective Tissue Root Coverage

Achieving Predictable Connective Tissue Root Coverage
Gingival recession creates esthetic issues. These issues may be corrected from a restorative perspective by the placement of composite resin or ceramic over the exposed root. But this approach often results in a gingival-incisal length that does not blend esthetically with the adjacent teeth. Often accompanying the gingival recession is a decrease in the band of attached gingiva. The wider the band of attached gingiva, the more stable the long-term result. Therefore, surgical correction of the recession…

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…
