Thank you Riyaz and Mahmoud. Kevin, the answer to your question below is YES. You can use this technique for almost all types of recession defects. Dr. Salama

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

Loyd Dowd - (1/3/2016 11:55 PM)

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?

Excessive Gingival Display Managed by Surgical Lip Reposition, Aesthetic Crown Lengthening and Veneers Premium Member Content

Excessive Gingival Display Managed by Surgical Lip Reposition, Aesthetic Crown Lengthening and Veneers
Excessive gingival display can be managed by a variety of treatment modalities, depending on the etiology. Mild and moderate gummy smiles can be successfully treated by periodontal plastic surgery, however for excessive gingival display as in cases of VME II or III with 5 to 8 mm or more of gingival exposure this procedure is not enough. Many patients decline the more invasive Le Fort osteotomy and opt for a less invasive surgical lip repositioning procedure. Currently Botox is used as alternative, but this is only a temporary treatment with very short effectiveness. That is why we suggest surgical lip repositioning as an effective procedure to reduce gingival display by positioning the upper lip in a more coronal location. The long-term stability of the results remains to be seen, but it holds promise as an alternative treatment to more invasive procedures.

Partial Extraction Therapies: From Failure to Everyday Practice - Part 2 of 4 Premium Member Content

Partial Extraction Therapies: From Failure to Everyday Practice - Part 2 of 4
Tooth extraction is usually followed by the resorption of support tissues that may compromise the aesthetic and functional prognosis of the final rehabilitation. There have been numerous publications suggesting Partial Extraction Therapies contribute to the maintenance of the alveolar ridge dimensions. These techniques consist in intentionally preserving a buccal root fragment in order to avoid tearing the periodontal ligament and loosing the bundle bone, which leads to bone resorption. It has been reported that these are very sensitive techniques and may lead to some complications. In order to avoid these complications, the dental surgeon must know which cases can be treated with Partial Extraction Therapies and how to correctly perform them. In these presentations we will show what are the indications and contraindications, how to perform these techniques, the literature that sustains it, how can we benefit from digital technology to today's world, etc.

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.

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.

Achieving Predictable Connective Tissue Root Coverage

Achieving Predictable Connective Tissue Root Coverage
Gingival recession creates esthetic issues. These issues may be corrected from a restomtive 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 tire 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 stabIe the long-term result Therefore, surgical correction of the recession…

Influence of Thin Mucosal Tissues on Crestal Bone Stability Around Implants With Platform Switching: A 1-year Pilot Study

Influence of Thin Mucosal Tissues on Crestal Bone Stability Around Implants With Platform Switching: A 1-year Pilot Study
The aim of this pilot study was to determine what effect thin mucosal tissues can have on crestal bone stability around implants with platform switching. Within the limitations of this pilot study it can be concluded that implants with platform switching did not preserve crestal bone better in comparison with implants with traditional implant-abutment connection if, at the time of implant placement, thin mucosal tissues were present.

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.
