Questions & Comments
Jason Tubo, DMD - (4/6/2016 8:23 AM)

Thanks Ron - For soft tissue procedures like frenectomies, I use local anesthesia a little more than 50% of the time with my adult patients, and less than 10% of the time with the kids and babies. For more involved procedures like gingivoplasty, gingivectomy, crown lengthening, vestibuloplasty, etc. I am using local anesthesia on almost everyone. The settings remained the same from the beginning to the end of the procedure, and the whole procedure is recorded in the video (nothing was done before the video started). On this procedure, the Solea laser was "pedal to the metal" with a pulse duration of 30ms and irrigation at 70%. Best ~ Jason Tubo

Nicely done, Jason. What percent of the time do you need to do local anesthesia and for what soft tissue procedures? And finally, please let us know what settings you were on at the start or did you use a different setting before the video started?

This is an amazing tool for soft tissue work. When I bought my Solea, I had low expectations for soft tissue since I was using a 10,600nm CO2 laser. BUT.... I quickly realized that Solea is an even better soft tissue laser due to speed and precision. Less need for anesthesia as seen here. Combine that with a fast and precise laser for all my direct restorative with 97% anesthesia free and I am a happy dentist. If you slow down your hand movement a bit you will get a faster and smoother result. Great job! Michael Kelly

Great example of what Solea is capable of doing. Precise, quick, bloodless and anesthesia free.

Socket Preservation vs Root Submergence Technique
Socket preservation has been a common technique used in dentistry in order to maintain the volume ridge when the extraction is performed. New techniques and materials are used today in order to improve the outcomes like root submergence technique developed by Dr Maurice Salama and his team, where we submerge the root keeping intact the PDL and bundle bone responsible for maintaining the original bone architecture. Here both techniques are compared and described.

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.

Chu's Aesthetic Guages: Crown Lengthening
The Crown Lengthening Gauge has the Biologic Periogauge (BLPG) tip on one end and the Papilla tip on the opposite end. The BLPG tip is used to achieve the propermid-facial clinical crown and biologic crown (osseous crest to incisal edge position) length during surgical crown lengthening procedures. The Papilla tip follows the use of the BLPG tip to establish the correct aesthetic position of the interdental papilla fromthe incisal edge before the flap is closed and sutured.
