Nicely done.

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.

Laser Uncovery of Dental Implants Premium Member Content

Laser Uncovery of Dental Implants
Although many clinicians prefer to place all their implants in a one stage approach there are times when a healing abutment must be sacrificed for a cover screw and the implant buried for a two stage approach. In situations where primary stability is low, where bone grafting has occurred or where less than 2 mm of soft tissue is available then a safer approach may be to uncover the fixtures after a 3 month healing. Lasers have become a go to “soft tissue hand piece” for many clinicians when manipulating soft tissue around implants due to their minimal zone of necrosis, ability to provide ideal hemostasis and their safety of use around fixtures compared to traditional soft tissue methodologies like electrosurgical units, some of which can lead to catastrophic failures with implants. See how both diode lasers and erbium lasers can be used safely and efficiently to uncover and move tissue around implants during stage two surgeries

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.

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.

Suturing Principles - Material Selection

Suturing Principles - Material Selection
The primary objective of dental suturing is to position and secure surgical flaps to promote optimal healing The evolution of su turing materials has enabled decreased potential of postoperative infection and increased successful closure with minimal difficulty. Accurate flap opposition contributes to patient comfort and hemostas is, reduces the wound to be repaired, and prevents unnecessary bone destruction.

Elements and Utilization of Suturing Needles

Elements and Utilization of Suturing Needles
The primary components of every suturing needle include the attachment end, body, and point. Traditional complications caused by threading have been eliminated by the advent of needles that are permanently attached to the suturing material. The suturing procedure is further simplified by the attached and press-fitted end of the needle (swaged) that enables the clinician to draw it through the tissue with less trauma.
