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.

Sandra Calle Muñoz - (9/13/2012 11:33 PM)

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.

How did he decide on which papilla to tunnel and which to sever? Or did he just alternate for access...

The preservation of the surgery is excellent.

The Evolving Role of Soft Tissue Enhancement in Esthetic Reconstructive Dentistry - Part 3 of 3 Premium Member Content

The Evolving Role of Soft Tissue Enhancement in Esthetic Reconstructive Dentistry - Part 3 of 3
Soft tissue grafting techniques, new regenerative materials and bioactivators will be highlighted. The expanding role of allograft materials (Perioderm), platelet rich in growth factors (PRGF, PRF), and when to utilize them will be suggested. The ability of these combined protocols to alter the soft tissue profile around natural teeth, implants, and dentulous ridges, will be reviewed as to its critical role in "Complete Esthetics".

The Esthetic Reconstructive TRIAD: "GBR, GTR and Tissue Molding" Premium Member Content

The Esthetic Reconstructive TRIAD: "GBR, GTR and Tissue Molding"
Implant dentistry in the esthetic zone is highly challenging. In recent years there are several studies, well defined approaches available on how to achieve pleasing outcomes. We must understand the biology of extraction sites and different treatment options for preserving or even reconstructing bony structures for predictable implant placement. This clinical and evidence based presentation will emphasize the importance of proper 3-dimensional implant placement, show different bone preservation techniques i.e P.E.T. (Partial Extraction Therapy) and how soft tissue grafting can effect the final end result. However we must admit that not only surgery but prosthetic skills have a major influence on our work. Implant placement must be determined with the prosthetic plan in mind! On the other hand abutment design, platform shifting concept as tissue molding “tools” and screw retained solutions will be high-lighted with lots of case presentations.

Critical Concepts in Implant and Gingival Surgery; Flap Designs, Suture Techniques and Soft Tissue Management Premium Member Content

Critical Concepts in Implant and Gingival Surgery; Flap Designs, Suture Techniques and Soft Tissue Management
This presentation by the Troeltzsch Brothers features the fundamentals of surgical procedures in the oral cavity. Highlighted are the basic concepts we all must integrate into our daily clinical practice. A discussion of the essential anatomic guidelines as they relate to flap design options and indications are emphasized. Furthermore, material selection, sutures and techniques of wound closures are clearly addressed. Critical solutions to common surgical complications are also described. This lecture is intended for surgical beginners as well as experienced clinicians who want to update their surgical knowledge. These fundamentals are also very popular in the hands-on courses given by the Troeltzsch brothers.

Prosthetic Soft Tissue Development From Single to Full Arch Reconstruction Premium Member Content

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.

Managing Esthetic Implant Complications Premium Member Content

Managing Esthetic Implant Complications
Dental implant success today is judged not only by osseointegration but also by bone, tissue stability and of course long term esthetic results. Cosmetic predictability can often be difficult to attain, and esthetic implant failures can be multifactorial and patient management issues. Once esthetic implant failures occur, many cannot be fully corrected. Some complications must be addressed by an interdisciplinary dental team. In this summary of case reports, surgical considerations are provided, including cases of facial asymmetry/recession due to facial implant placement or bone loss resulting from technique/treatment failures, as well as papillary deficiencies. Restorative considerations for correcting failures are also discussed.

Maxillary Anterior Papilla Display During Smiling: A Clinical Study of the Interdental Smile Line

Maxillary Anterior Papilla Display During Smiling: A Clinical Study of the Interdental Smile Line
The purpose of this research was to quantify the presence or absence of interdental papillae during maximum smiling in a patient population aged 10 to 89 years. The visual display of interdental papillae during maximum smiling occurred 380 of the 420 patients examined in this study, equivalent to a 91% occurrence rate. Eighty seven percent of all patients categorized as having a low gingival smile line were found to display the interdental papillae upon smiling. Differences were noted for individual age groups according to the decade of life as well as a trend toward decreasing papillary display with increasing age. The importance of interdental papillae display during dynamic smiling should not be left undiagnosed since it is visible in over 91% of older patients and in 87% of patients with a low gingival smile line, representing a common and important esthetic element that needs to be assessed during smile analysis of the patient.

Mucosal Coronally Positioned Flap for the Management of Excessive Gingival Display in the Presence of Hypermobility of the Upper Lip and Vertical Maxillary Excess: A Case Report

Mucosal Coronally Positioned Flap for the Management of Excessive Gingival Display in the Presence of Hypermobility of the Upper Lip and Vertical Maxillary Excess: A Case Report
Excessive gingival display is a frequent finding that can occur because of various intraoral or extraoral etiologies. This report describes the use of a mucosal coronally positioned flap for the management of a gummy smile associated with vertical maxillary excess and hypermobility of the upper lip. For patients desiring a less invasive alternative to orthognathic surgery, the mucosal coronally positioned flap is a viable alternative. We demonstrate short-term successful use of this technique for the management of excessive gingival display in the presence of slight vertical maxillary excess and hypermobility of the upper lip. Long-term follow-up studies are needed to determine stability of the results.
