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.

Novel Surgical BioSealing & Original BioProfiling Techniques - Part 1 of 2
Biphosphonates Related Osteonecrosis of the Jaw is one of the tragedies affecting our patients each time more often representing a new challenge in what we like to call human dentistry. This severe and unpredictable outcome can evolve from something as simple as a tooth extraction or simply an implant placement. In this presentation the authors display one of the first BRONJ cases in the world treated with the surgical biosealing technique using the PRGF ENDORET graft. Understanding the BIOlogy behind the healing process has been as much surprising as useful in trying to alleviate our patients pain and improve their quality of life. This video presents a novel technique to the post-extraction site based upon taking care of the overall tissue support from the bone level and we will discuss treatment planning, options and limitations with this technique/protocol.

Maximizing Esthetics with Minimally Invasive Surgery Around Implants Premium Member Content

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.

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.

Zero Bone Loss Protocol - Part I: Influence of Vertical Soft Tissue Thickness on Crestal Bone Stability
It is suggested that thin tissues might be thickened during implant placement, thus reducing bone resorption. The role of soft tissue thickness is well established in aesthetic treatment. It is known that thin soft tissues present an unfavorable situation for implant placement, crestal bone stability and subsequent prosthetic treatment.

Bipolar Electrosurgery: Gingival Modification in Passive Eruption
Excessive gingival display can affect the total aesthetics of a smile, becoming its focus instead of its frame. This can be the result of passive eruption of the gingival complex as the teeth erupt. The condition of delayed or altered passive eruption exists when the gingival complex remains coronal to the cementoenamel junction (CEJ), with the attachment on the enamel instead of the cementum of the root, giving the appearance of short clinical crowns. Crown lengthening is critical to the success…

Clinical Realities - Maximizing Aesthetics and Health Using a Closed-Flap ER: YSGG Laser Technique
Dental lasers have evolved considerably as an adjunct and alternative treatment to safely, conservatively, and reliably decrease bacterial levels and improve the hard and soft tissue contours. In selected cases, long-term aesthetic and functional parameters are satisfied with precise restorative planning and technique and by utilizing minimally invasive procedures. Furthermore, patients are provided with optimal results more comfortably and efficiently.
