Tunneling Technique for Treating Multiple Recession Defects - A Surgical Technique Video

Description:
In this surgical video, Dr. Maurice Salama describes the utilization of the tunneling technique in treating multiple recession defects in a thin tissue environment. Flap management and release as well as instrumentation are described in great detail along with suturing. Harvesting and manipulation of an autogeneous soft tissue graft is also well demonstrated.

very useful, thank you Maurice

kevin potocsky - (6/22/2016 9:26 AM)

can you tunnel with bigger recession defects like 5 mm too if doing multiple teeth or is better to flap?

Maurice Salama - (1/4/2016 8:09 AM)

Loyd; Thanks for your interest. There is always time but as we know there is a wait list on these courses and things happen. I will have someone at XP be in touch ASAP. regards Dr. Salama

Your soft tissue course in San Franscisco in March is sold out according to this website. It also says that you're not giving another soft tissue course in 2016. So, that brings me to the question of how to learn your soft tissue techniques this year instead of waiting for another soft tissue course in 2017. I'm 66 years old and don't have any time to waste. Thanks Loyd

I took your bone grafting, ridge splitting, and soft tissue grafting course in Dallas a year or two ago but I don't remember your teaching anything about VISTA or your modified tunnel technique at that course. I'm assuming the March course in San Franscisco is strictly soft tissue I just ordered the titanium VISTA kit from DoWell last week. I intend to merge pinhole with tunnel procedure and combine strips of collagen membrane under the papillae areas a la pinhole with a strip of thick collagen membrane above that instead of pushing lots of small collagen strips into that area. Personally I prefer to place 6-0 suspensory sutures anchored with composite dots on the facials of the teeth in pinhole surgery simply because I can't trust some patients to be really gentle and follow pinhole postop instructions. Until I can take your course are there any more videos on DentalXP that could give me some insight into the differences between pinhole and your tunnel procedure? Should I keep the VISTA kit I ordered or return it and buy your tunnel kit? The VISTA papillae periosteals look similar in curvatures to the papillae periosteals in the Chao pinhole kit. That's why I ordered that kit. Thanks, Loyd

Maurice Salama - (1/2/2016 6:56 PM)

Loyd; Good question. I cover much of this during my soft tissue 2 day Hands on Soft tissue course. There are many differences and they all work and fail equally depending upon WHEN and HOW you utilize these procedures. My next course is in San Francisco in March. All the best. Dr. Salama

Loyd Dowd - (1/2/2016 3:35 PM)

I took Dr Chao's pinhole course and have gotten excellent results with it. That said I'm always looking for a better mousetrap. How does your modified tunneling procedure differ from the Vista procedure and pinhole procedure?

Thank you for very nice presentation

Modern Crown Lengthening: Classification and Clinical Application
Crown lengthening procedures are indicated to provide adequate tooth structure in case of subgingival tooth fracture or caries, uneven gingival level, un-esthetic short crowns due to the tooth wear, inadequate axial height, altered passive eruption ,forced eruption of a single or multiple teeth and finally in case of gingival smile. The treatment modality for esthetic crown lengthening procedure should be based on detail diagnosis in each case because of the multifactorial etiology and because of the type of therapy selected by the clinician, will have a direct implication for the esthetic result.

Negative Factors for Soft & Hard Tissue Maintenance Premium Member Content

Negative Factors for Soft & Hard Tissue Maintenance
Maintaining the bone is the most difficult challenge in implantology (bone grafted or native bone around implants). If a tissue want to live long, it has to follow 2 conditions: The first condition is to organize a full blood supply.. However, it’s not enough. The solution for the long term stability is to try to organize the stability of the blood supply.. by the respect of several biologic conditions. Almost of these conditions are explained in this lecture. We introduce here the new concept to avoid the reduction of blood supply by the periosteal incision: the soft brushing technique is the first technique which allows a very large increase of the flap without any incision: the flap closure without tension but without any incision.

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.

Acellular Dermal Grafts in the Correction of Gingival Recession: Discovering the Possibilities Premium Member Content

Acellular Dermal Grafts in the Correction of Gingival Recession: Discovering the Possibilities
Autogenous connective tissue grafts from the palate have been the gold standard for surgically correcting gingival recession for decades. With the advent of newer soft (and hard) tissue allografts, grafting procedures are increasingly predictable, quick, effective, and less painful for patients. In this presentation, follow the evolution of root coverage surgery from autogenous grafts to the more contemporary alternatives of today. Discover how these newer materials are making it easier for patients to say "yes" and how their results can impact the level of esthetics, periodontal health and predictable restorative dentistry our profession can deliver.

The Evolving Role of Soft Tissue Enhancement in Esthetic Reconstructive Dentistry
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".

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…

Acellular Dermal Matrix Grafts for Root Coverage Procedures: Review of Products and Introduction of a New Technique
Gingival recession remains a significant problem in dental esthetics as well as periodontal health. Adequate zones of keratinized, attached tissue are vital for long-term periodontal health and maintenance. The correction of gingival recession is an important principle in cosmetic dental procedures that requires a harmonious gingival complex. Correction of deficient gingival tissues by either autogenous or allogenic tissue grafts has been well documented in the literature. This article will delineate differences among the various acellular dermal grafts as well as introduce a new technique that can enhance success.
