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.

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

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?

Innovative Sequencing for Interdisciplinary Aesthetic Treatment
Smile enhancement therapy has become an important facet of the everyday aesthetic practice. Aesthetic evaluation utilizing facial aesthetic design to diagnose tooth position demands effective communication between the periodontal-restorative team. This presentation will review innovative sequencing techniques for interdisciplinary cases which require aesthetic crown lengthening for the treatment of excessive gingival display, and for gingival augmentation for root coverage, and the correction of poor gingival quality. Immediate implant placement with immediate non–loaded provisional fabrication will also be reviewed.

Combined Augmentation Therapies in the Esthetic Zone
The esthetic zone presents a far bigger challenge than any other area of the mouth. It is the one area that a patient has the ability to really scrutinize the work that has been done and anything that does not pass muster will quickly create problems in our practices. Uncompromising treatment planning is therefore essential to ensure the long term aesthetic stability of our esthetic cases. Treatment planning involves both bone and soft tissue therapy as both are critical for the stability. This lecture will highlife the importance of different treatment options as well as show numerous new techniques that are possible to achieve the results that both our patients and practitioners are proud of.

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.

Biologic Width Adjacent to Loaded Implant with Machined and Rough Collars in the Dog

Biologic Width Adjacent to Loaded Implant with Machined and Rough Collars in the Dog
Dental implant surface technology has evolved from a relatively smooth machined implant surface for osseointegration to more roughened osteoconductive surfaces. Recent studies suggest that peri-implant soft tissue inflammation with progressive bone loss (ie peri-implantitis) is becoming a prevalent condition. One possibility that could explain sucha a finding is that more bacterial plaque forms on the roughened implant and abutment surfaces, which may result in the peri-implant inflammation if the soft tissues. This study compared 36 tissue-level implants with a machined transmucosal collar to 36 implants with a relatively roughened transmucosal surface in the dog. The results demonstrated that the connective tissue contact was similar between the two implant types but that the junctional epithelium and biologic width dimensions were greater around the implants with the machined collars...
