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.

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.

Combined Augmentation Therapies in the Esthetic Zone Premium Member Content

Combined Augmentation Therapies in the Esthetic Zone
The esthetic zone presents a far bigger challenge than any other area of the mouth. It is the one area that a patient has the ability to really scrutinize the work that has been done and anything that does not pass muster will quickly create problems in our practices. Uncompromising treatment planning is therefore essential to ensure the long term aesthetic stability of our esthetic cases. Treatment planning involves both bone and soft tissue therapy as both are critical for the stability. This lecture will highlife the importance of different treatment options as well as show numerous new techniques that are possible to achieve the results that both our patients and practitioners are proud of.

Is There One or More Reasons to Optimize the PRF & PRP Protocols? Future Trends in Dentistry, Orthopedics and Facial Aesthetics Premium Member Content

Is There One or More Reasons to Optimize the PRF & PRP Protocols? Future Trends in Dentistry, Orthopedics and Facial Aesthetics
The “Advanced” PRF (A-PRF) and “Injectable” PRF (I-PRF) protocols were designed with this new concept. Indications are numerous in all medical fields where we need regeneration: bone, cartilage, skin etc... However, the use of growth factors is not a guarantee of long term stability, as they are active only at the beginning of the process. Numerous rules of tissue engineering have to be applied to maintain the regenerated bone through an adequate blood supply: this lecture is an enlightenment on the biological and mechanical conditions for long term stability of the bone: “grafted bone” or “bone around implants”.

Esthetic Zone Reconstruction: Synergy of Hard and Soft Tissue Grafting Premium Member Content

Esthetic Zone Reconstruction: Synergy of Hard and Soft Tissue Grafting
The loss of alveolar ridge contour in the esthetic zone compromises both esthetics and function. This clinical presentation will focus on the application of both hard and soft tissue grafting in the esthetic zone implementing state of the art interactive CT diagnosis and treatment planning for optimal esthetic implant reconstruction. Emphasis will be on indications, graft and harvest site assessment, timing, and use of bioactive modifiers including BMP, PRGF and PDGF. The surgical protocol utilizing allogeneic and autogenous grafts in conjunction with connective tissue grafts, acellular dermis matrix, and related soft tissue procedures to avoid functional and esthetic pitfalls will be featured. Pre and post-grafting prosthetic workup, interactive CT graft assessment and perio prosthetic driven implant planning, stent driven implant placement, and computer milled abutment fabrication including guided surgery will be included.

Peri-implant Soft Tissue Conditioning with Provisional Restorations in the Esthetic Zone: The Dynamic Compression Technique

Peri-implant Soft Tissue Conditioning with Provisional Restorations in the Esthetic Zone: The Dynamic Compression Technique
An optimal esthetic implant restoration is a combination of a visually pleasing prosthesis and surrounding peri-implant soft tissue architecture. This article introduces a clinical method, the dynamic compression technique, of conditioning soft tissues around bone-level implants with provisional restorations in the esthetic zone. The technique has several goals: to establish an adequate emergence profile; to recreate a balanced mucosa course and level in harmony with the gingiva of the adjacent teeth, including papilla height/width, localization of the mucosal zenith and the tissue profile's triangular shape; as well as to establish an accurate proximal contact area with the adjacent tooth/implant crown.

Enhancing Esthetics with a Fixed Prosthesis Utilizing an Innovative Pontic Design and Periodontal Plastic Surgery

Enhancing Esthetics with a Fixed Prosthesis Utilizing an Innovative Pontic Design and Periodontal Plastic Surgery
During the past two decades, significant advancements with the integration of periodontal plastic surgery into esthetic restorative dental procedures have received increased attention. While ovate pontics have traditionally been used as a restorative design following augmentation procedures to enhance esthetics, an alternate E-pontic design aims to predictably support and maintain the gingival architecture between a single missing anterior tooth adjacent to a natural tooth or an implant that is in harmony with the lip line and face. In addition, the E-pontic design promotes the gingival facial tissue to coronally migrate over the pontic, creating a gingival sulcus. This article describes an innovative new technique and a pontic design that predictably will develop, support, and maintain the gingival architecture to provide a long-term esthetic and functional outcome.

Achieving Predictable Connective Tissue Root Coverage

Achieving Predictable Connective Tissue Root Coverage
Gingival recession creates esthetic issues. These issues may be corrected from a restorative perspective by the placement of composite resin or ceramic over the exposed root. But this approach often results in a gingival-incisal length that does not blend esthetically with the adjacent teeth. Often accompanying the gingival recession is a decrease in the band of attached gingiva. The wider the band of attached gingiva, the more stable the long-term result. Therefore, surgical correction of the recession…
