Papilla Preservation and Tunneling Technique in Root Coverage - Part 2: The Use of AlloDerm

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.

Biologic Strategies to Enhance Clinical and Aesthetic Success in Oral Implantology Premium Member Content

Biologic Strategies to Enhance Clinical and Aesthetic Success in Oral Implantology
This webinar will discuss clinical strategies for treatment of the complex implant site involving bone grafting and implant placement. Our understanding of cellular pathways, and our ability to control the wound response, expands our capacity to effect better aesthetic outcomes and compress treatment time. The reduction of the inflammatory phase of tissue regeneration speeds up osseointegration, prevents crestal bone loss, maintains papillary form, increases the density of peri-implant bone and increases tissue biotype. This enhanced tissue response allows us to predictably treat even the most complex surgical cases, compress time to final reconstruction, and to maintain these favorable tissue outcomes over an extended period of time. The use of dental implants with advanced biologic features and the incorporation autologous growth factors will be demonstrated.

Tobacco is a major risk factor in the development and severity of periodontal disease, as well as in the response to periodontal therapy. It is essential that methods be employed to increase awareness of the adverse effects on the oral cavity directly related to smoking, specifically the relationship between the latter and its impact on periodontal tissue.

Clinical and Microbiological Effects of Local Tetracycline Irrigation on Periodontitis
This investigation was conducted on seven individuals referred for treatment of moderate adult periodontitis. Twenty-eight sites with an average probing depth of 5.6 ± 0.9 mm were evaluated. One tooth per jaw quadrant was randomly assigned to receive one of the following treatments: (I) no treatment, i.e., control; (II) saline irrigation; (III) tetracycline irrigation and (IV) scaling and root planing (SC/RP). A plaque control program was instituted one week prior to the experimental period and reinforced…
