thank you , very much Do you have the stadistic of "relapse" congratulations

Dr Bhola, i found your presentation very interesting and inspiring. But i have some doubts about the management of the movements that the patients can do after the surgery. They have to avoid smiling o do bigger movements with their lips for how much time?. Sorry if my english it isn't as correct as it should be. Thank you for the presentation.

Thank you Dr. Monish! Very nice presentation. I'm wondering about the need to regroup the muscle fibers as I have seen in another representation. I understand that having minimal thickness of tissue removal will minimize the relapse but could you please explain how you came to this conclusion?

Maurice Salama - (6/5/2014 7:28 AM)

Monish; Thank you and see you at the DentalXP Global Symposium. What is the realistic "relapse" potential of this procedure? How do explain this to the patient? many thanks Dr. Salama

The Surgical-Restorative Digital Work Flow In Comprehensive Therapy
Traditional methods of treating our patients are being been replaced by digital processes, impacting our daily life. The intake of various technologies such as CBCT imaging, scanning, digital restorative design and CAD/CAM production have contributed to this movement. In the same time, restorative materials have also been developed and studied that have improved strength and esthetic qualities. All these capabilities create opportunities for better restorative outcome.

Controlled Ridge Splitting (CRS) Premium Member Content

Controlled Ridge Splitting (CRS)
To demonstrate a new technique of controlled ridge splitting (CRS) in severely atrophied maxillary cases as an alternative to autogenous block graft. Twenty cases were completed using a controlled ridge splitting (CRS) technique with a total of 65 implants were placed in severely atrophied Maxillae and followed after the implants were loaded. Results: The CRS technique was used in very complex cases, where the alternative method will be autogenous block graft. A total of 65 tapered implants were placed. The implants diameter ranged between 3.25-5mm with a length ranged between 10-13mm. The implants were restored and were followed for 1-3 years. All implants achieved osseointegration and continue to have successful prostheses. Conclusion: The CRS is a predictable treatment option and could be a good alternative to autogenous block grafts is severely atrophic maxillae.

Mastering Surgical Principles: Key to Constant Success
Clinical success depends on material and technique selection, but no material or technique will succeed if surgical principles are not respected. Attention to detail is imperative and mastering surgical principles is key to constant success. This course aims to review principles of flap design and elevation, as well as degranulation, debridement, suturing and wound stabilization of the most commonly performed periodontal, implant and advanced bone grafting procedures. Pharmacologic protocols and anesthesia will also be discussed.

Surgical suture positioning is crucial to ensure adequate healing and can be accomplished using a variety of suturing methods. Sutures should generally be placed distal to the last tooth and within each interproximal space and should always be inserted through the more mobile flap first The flaps should not be blanched during the tying procedure, and closure should not be positioned closer than 2 mm to 3 mm from the edge of the flap, in order to prevent tearing during the inevitable swelling that…
