Papilla Preservation and Tunneling Technique in Root Coverage – Part 1

Description:
In part 1 of this surgical instructional video series, Dr. Edward Pat Allen describes in great detail root preparation, instrumentation, and flap management techniques utilized in setting-up the root coverage of multiple adjacent recession defects. Emphasis is placed on papilla preservation through the use of a surgical tunneling technique.

hi..i am a dentist working in iran.i am intrested to your presentation but for us is imposible to send payment.

Good morning my best compliments to Dott Allen for the technique and at all for the fantastic web site that I think is the best and helpfully all over the world I would like to know the characteristic of flap ,if is a full or half thickness or when end where if half or full. Thanks for the attention Dott. Michele Nannelli Italy

Sandra; typically done for ease and success of passing tissue through the tunnel. VISTA is completely different technique with large vertical incisions that extend into mucosa on each side of defect. Come see both performed in hands-on programs by the inventors, Pat Allen Tunnel and Homa Zadeh VISTA at the XP Global Sympsoium in Las Vegas Feb. 7-9.2013.

I want to know the answer about this question: "How did he decide on which papilla to tunnel and which to sever? Or did he just alternate for access..." Thanks

Edison Louie - (8/4/2012 9:56 PM)

what are the indications and advantages in using the VISTA approach?

Edison Louie - (8/4/2012 9:55 PM)

Well done!

My point of view is that you can watch the speaker doing preservation V-shaped design at the swelling of the papilla. He is doing tunneling at the small width of attached gingiva of the papilla. If there is any commment to my point, please let me know.

The preservation of the surgery is excellent.

The Management of Soft Tissue Complications in Implant Dentistry
A variety of soft tissue procedures have been employed for treatment of soft tissue and ridge defects around implant sites. Some of the limitations of current techniques include scar formation at recipient sites due to surface incisions, relapse of recession due to muscle pull during healing, wound dehiscence and graft exposure. This presentation will discuss the myriad flap and incision designs, tunnel techniques as well as grafting options and suturing.

Maximizing Esthetics with Minimally Invasive Surgery Around Implants
Soft tissue deficiencies around implants impact esthetics and often lead to escalating problems. Early recognition and intervention with minimally invasive soft tissue surgery reduces the risk of undesirable sequellae associated with conventional surgical approaches around implants. The application of a minimally invasive soft tissue grafting method will be shown for treatment of soft tissue problems around implants and the indications for use of this technique will be outlined.

Prosthetic Soft Tissue Development From Single to Full Arch Reconstruction
In addition to surgical intervention is the creation of the specific emergence profile that is essential in the aesthetic zone. The emergence profile composed of 2 parts, the abutment and the subgingival part of the crown. The shape of abutment can be individually shaped so that it gives natural appearance and varies individually (depending on the depth, angulation and diameter of the implant). Sometimes it even dictates the implant position. From a surgical perspective, soft tissue height, position and thickness need to be diagnosed and corrected when needed. From the prosthetic point of view, the emergence profile has to be created to mimic the natural appearance and maintained over time in respect to the biological changes. The course teaches step by step how to be successful with implant prosthetics from single tooth, partially edentulous to full arch reconstruction.

Acellular Dermal Grafts in the Correction of Gingival Recession: Discovering the Possibilities Premium Member Content

Acellular Dermal Grafts in the Correction of Gingival Recession: Discovering the Possibilities
Autogenous connective tissue grafts from the palate have been the gold standard for surgically correcting gingival recession for decades. With the advent of newer soft (and hard) tissue allografts, grafting procedures are increasingly predictable, quick, effective, and less painful for patients. In this presentation, follow the evolution of root coverage surgery from autogenous grafts to the more contemporary alternatives of today. Discover how these newer materials are making it easier for patients to say "yes" and how their results can impact the level of esthetics, periodontal health and predictable restorative dentistry our profession can deliver.

Acellular Dermal Matrix Grafts for Root Coverage Procedures: Review of Products and Introduction of a New Technique
Gingival recession remains a significant problem in dental esthetics as well as periodontal health. Adequate zones of keratinized, attached tissue are vital for long-term periodontal health and maintenance. The correction of gingival recession is an important principle in cosmetic dental procedures that requires a harmonious gingival complex. Correction of deficient gingival tissues by either autogenous or allogenic tissue grafts has been well documented in the literature. This article will delineate differences among the various acellular dermal grafts as well as introduce a new technique that can enhance success.

Bone Regeneration and Tissue Acceptance of Human Fascia Lata Grafts Adjacent to Dental Implants
The biologic principle of guided tissue regeneration (GTR) has been studied extensively in hopes of regenerating alveolar bone. Various materials have been utilized as regenerative membranes; however, all materials have disadvantages, and the ideal membrane material is yet to be identified. In this case report, human freeze-dried fascia lata strips were used as a regenerative barrier membrane in conjunction with the placement of endosseous root implants and demineralized, freeze-dried bone allograft.…
