The Free Gingival Graft...Back to Basics: Why Do It?

Description:
The lower incisor area is the site of the most common mucogingival deficiencies: Gingival recession, high frenum attachments, and thin tissue. Because of the local anatomy, this area is a challenge to treat surgically. Common treatment options often include the subepithelial connective tissue graft, acellular dermal graft, free gingival graft, as well as several other methods/materials. In this video, a free gingival graft is demonstrated to address a recession defect as well as to augment the soft tissue while eliminating the high frenum pull in order to aid in the orthodontic treatment plan of a young patient. While commonly shunned for the morbidity associated with palatal grafts, the free gingival graft is making a comeback with the popularity of implant dentistry due to it's relative simplicity and predictability for augmenting thin tissue. This "back to basics" video takes the free gingival graft back to its roots: The lower incisor area.

How to find the free basic videos?

Thank you Dr. Wong-that was great.

I second what Dr. Salama says regarding periodontal dressings. I also rarely use a dressing. For my typical free gingival graft such as this, I typically do not suture the bottom portion of the graft to the periosteum IF the graft is immobile. If I am uneasy about the graft's stability I will utilize a periosteal anchoring sling suture that more firmly adapts the graft to the recipient bed.

Helena; Not always, only to help extend the vestibule. Dr. Salama

Helena DeLuca - (4/16/2014 8:28 PM)

Thank you for your great presentations! Do you use periodontal dressing with your FGG'S?

Maurice Salama - (4/16/2014 4:26 PM)

Helena; Barricade is Light Cured Material and very popular or you can you select Perio Pak. Dr. Salama

Plastic-Esthetic Periodontal and Implant Surgery: A Microsurgical Approach - Part 1
This 2 part presentation is a comprehensive overview of the principles, indications, and clinical techniques of plastic-esthetic periodontal and implant microsurgery, focusing especially on minimal soft tissue trauma and maximally perfect wound closure. Microsurgery provides clinically relevant advantages over conventional macro-surgical concepts for regenerative and plastic-esthetic periodontal surgery, especially in the all-important esthetic zone. The microsurgical principles and procedures presented will described using high resolution multimedia.

Advanced Immediate Implant Placement Strategies Including the Socket Shield (SS) Technique and its Complications Premium Member Content

Advanced Immediate Implant Placement Strategies Including the Socket Shield (SS) Technique and its Complications
Immediate implant placement in the aesthetic zone has become a controversial topic with regards to the long term aesthetic demands that both the profession and our patients have placed on this treatment modality. Since the controversy broke a few years ago there have been a number of outstanding developments that have revolutionized the way we do immediate implant placement. Soft tissue augmentations using the tunnel technique as well as the socket whiled technique are 2 of these techniques which form the baseline of treatment in our clinic. This lecture will go through all the updated protocols of immediate implant placement supported by the literature as well as deal specifically with the finer details of the socket whiled technique including step by step photos and video of the technique. More importantly it will cover numerous complications that we have had to deal with over the last few years that we have been doing this technique.

Post-Traumatic Treatment of Maxillary Incisors by Immediate Dentoalveolar Restoration with Long-Term Follow-Up

Post-Traumatic Treatment of Maxillary Incisors by Immediate Dentoalveolar Restoration with Long-Term Follow-Up
Replacing both missing maxillary interior teeth is particularly challenging, especially in compromised sockets. The case report describes the management of an 18-year-old female patient, who suffered avulsion of both maxillary central incisors at 7 years of age. The multidisciplinary implant technique, called Immediate Dentoalveolar Restoration (IDR), included extraction of the injured teeth and a single procedure for immediate implant placement and restoration of the compromised sockets after root fracture and peri-apical lesion development were detected during orthodontic treatment. Successful esthetic and functional outcomes and reestablishment of the alveolar process after bone reconstruction were observed during the 3-year follow-up period. The predictable esthetic outcomes and soft and hard tissue stability that can be achieved following IDR are demonstrated.

Surgical Crown Lengthening in a Population With Human Immunodeficiency Virus: A Retrospective Analysis

Surgical Crown Lengthening in a Population With Human Immunodeficiency Virus: A Retrospective Analysis
This report investigates the outcome of CLS procedures performed at an urban dental school in a population of individuals with HIV. Specifically, this retrospective clinical analysis evaluates the healing response after crown lengthening surgery (CLS). Of the 21 patients with HIV examined after CLS, none had postoperative complications, such as delayed healing, infection, or prolonged bleeding. Variations in viral load, CD4 cell count, smoking, platelets, and neutrophils did not impact surgical healing. In addition, variations in medication regimens (highly active anti-retroviral therapy; on pro-tease inhibitors; no medications had an impact. The results of this retrospective analysis show the absence of postoperative complications after CLS in this population with HIV. Additional investigation into this area will help health care practitioners increase the range of surgical services provided to this group of patients.

Buccal Sliding Palatal Pedicle Flap Technique for Wound Closure After Ridge Augmentation

Buccal Sliding Palatal Pedicle Flap Technique for Wound Closure After Ridge Augmentation
One standard approach for wound closure after ridge augmentation is coronal flap advancement. Coronal flap advancement results in displacement of the mucogingival junction and reduction of the vestibulum. In the maxilla, a buccal sliding palatal flap can be applied for primary wound closure after ridge augmentation. The dissected part of the palatal connective tissue is left exposed, thus eliminating or reducing the amount of the coronal flap advancement respectively and increasing the amount of keratinized gingiva. In combination with guided soft tissue augmentation, this flap design enables a three-dimensional peri-implant soft tissue augmentation.
