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

Surgical Veneer Grafting: Utilization in Immediate Implant Placement
The management of the digital implant prosthetic dentistry, especially in the anterior esthetic area, is one of the hottest topics in Dentistry. The diagnostic phase is critical. In the course, are discussed all the parameters to achieve the correct diagnosis of the socket and the various treatment plan correlated to each anatomical type of socket. The Dual Zone approach (bone zone and tissue zone) will be evaluated and discussed in detail, regarding each of their variables.

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.

Vertical or Shoulderless Preparations in Contemporary Prosthodontics Premium Member Content

Vertical or Shoulderless Preparations in Contemporary Prosthodontics
Tooth preparations without a defined finish line have been termed in several different ways, such as knife edge, feather edge, or shoulderless. From a biological standpoint, preserving a maximum amount of sound tooth structure, as it is done in vertical preparations, might also offer a more conservative alternative to a horizontal margin design in other clinical conditions such as endodontically treated teeth, vital teeth in young individual, teeth affected by caries at the cervical third. Vertical margins on zirconia crowns have been tested in vitro and clinical reports have been published. A re-evaluation of possible advantages and shortcomings of vertical preparation design in contemporary prosthodontics will be presented in light of recently published literature.

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…
