Description:
In part 2 of this instructional surgical video series, Dr. Edward Pat Allen describes in great detail the utilization of AlloDerm techniques in root coverage of multiple adjacent recession defects. In this section, emphasis is placed on shaping and sizing the AlloDerm as well as the micro-suturing techniques that optimize stabilization of the flap and the Alloderm.

Questions & Comments
David Furnari - (12/4/2016 11:20 PM)

I noticed that Dr Allen pointed out the difference between the basement membrane side and the connective tissue side of the alloderm. He did not make it clear if he prefers the CT side ( CT side does soak up blood) facing the mobilized tissue for new blood supply or facing the remaining periosteum and bone?

Maurice Salama - (3/21/2016 9:28 AM)

Randall; Great question. The best way to manage that situation is to restore the carious root lesion with glass ionomer and NOT composite resin. Glass ionomer can have a connective tissue attachment while composite can only manage a long junctional epithelial attachment which is much more fragile. Hope that helps. Dr. Salama

Randall Krebs - (3/20/2016 8:42 PM)

If there were a carious lesion on the root surface, say just inferior to the crown margin in the video (or on the mesial aboutment of a 4-5 unit bridge that you didn't want to remove), could that alloderma attach to the restoration or do you need cementum only? How would one regaining an attachment over a restoration if a lesion described above were present?

Maurice Salama - (1/26/2014 8:32 PM)

Although I do perform it differently, no denying the nice step by step surgical techniques displayed here by Dr. Allen. Thanks Dr. Salama

Richard Stanley - (1/21/2013 12:26 AM)

Excellently presented for training and developing skills for the doctor and assistant Truly a teaching video and one the surgical team can watch, learn from and replicate. Thank you.

Thank you Dr. Allen. good clinical presentation..

Andy Lewis - (9/13/2012 12:09 PM)

This is a different technique than I have seen him present in the past. In the last year I have seen him use the continuous sling suture capturing both the graft and the advancing flap. This seems like an older technique. Does it matter which we use?

Manuel De LA ROSA - (9/3/2012 8:24 PM)

Excellent suture teaching Dr Allen.

Edison Louie - (8/4/2012 9:36 PM)

Nice presentation. Shouid produce excellent results. Any comments on using Zimmer Dermis vs. AlloDerm?

Non-Surgical Periodontal Therapy: Decision Making in the 21st Century
Non-surgical periodontal therapy is a vital part of everyday dental practice. Since the majority of periodontal therapy is performed by general dentists and dental hygienists, it is critical that clinicians have all of the requisite skills and information needed to perform these services at the highest level possible. The purpose of this presentation is to provide the latest evidence- and practice- based information on periodontal debridement and adjunctive therapies that can improve patient outcomes. Though surgical procedures may still need to be performed in some sites, the majority of inflammatory periodontal disease can be eliminated or reduced significantly using the techniques and protocols discussed in this educational segment on non-surgical periodontal therapy.

Tissue Responsible Dentistry - Part 1: Contemporary Concepts in Hard & Soft Tissue Management in Implant Dentistry
Implant dentistry in the esthetic zone is highly challenging. In recent years several studies, well defined approaches have been published 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 insertion. This clinical and evidence based presentation emphasizes the importance of proper 3-dimensional implant surgery and how soft tissue grafting can effect the final end result. There will be a special focus on immediate extraction site placements and surrounding tissue management as well.

Tobacco is a major risk factor in the development and severity of periodontal disease, as well as in the response to periodontal therapy.

Periodontal Probing: Probe Tip Diameter

Periodontal Probing: Probe Tip Diameter
Background: Periodontal probing is one of the most common methods used in diagnosing periodontal disease. The purpose of this study was to determine the importance of the diameter of periodontal probing tips in diagnosing and evaluating periodontal disease. Methods: The literature discussing periodontal probe diameters in human, dog, and monkey studies was reviewed and compared. Tip diameters varied from 0.4 to over 1.0 mm in these studies. Probe advancement between the gingiva and the tooth is determined…

Bacterial Penetration of Gingiva in the Adult Beagle Dog with Periodontitis
Invasion of gingival tissues by bacteria is thought to be a major factor in development of periodontal lesions. Morphologic studies have revealed bacteria within the pocket epithelium, gingival connective tissues, alveolar bone, and oral epithelium. The current studies are intended to determine whether they are present in healthy and diseased tissues and to identify the microbial source. Five beagle dogs with naturally occurring periodontitis were fed a soft diet. Two quadrants of the dentition…
