Fantastic presentation- Thanks for sharing

Howard Gluckman - (10/5/2015 4:18 PM)

Great case Mo. Learned a lot thanks

Maurice Salama - (8/7/2015 12:51 PM)

Yohan; Thank you again. Yes, even with full tunnel technique there is retraction of the papilla area and risk of unintended tear or perforation so I prefer the VISTA with existing restorations or implants here BUT if the Tunnel is done well then really is only a preference. They both work. As for advice regarding early exposure of ACDM, it really depends upon suture method in my opinion. Once exposed NO intervention will be helpful, only observation and hygiene. regards Dr. Salama

yohan levy - (8/7/2015 1:44 AM)

Thank you for the rapidity of your answer your devotion to this site and To our profession in general is inspiring Following your answer i still do not understand why would you expect Any papilla retraction using a full tunelling technique whith no papilla elevation Introduicing the périoderm through the tunell Also concerning the technic shown on others of your excelent lecturs The One requiring the elevation of the most distal papilla i found in my experience specially When utilizing alloderm which Is usually thiker than the thick perioderm that this papilla tends to open Up very early in the healing process exposing the still wite alloderm Would you have Any advice to prevent this to happen and also what would you Recomand once this papilla opens up would you recomand to reintervein immidiatly To make sure that the alloderm do not stay exposed or no Thank you again

Maurice Salama - (8/6/2015 5:35 PM)

Yohan; Thank you for your kind words. I prefer VISTA here to avoid any potential issues with papilla retraction as these restorations will not be replaced. I would feel the same with implant restorations. As for tetracycline, it is simply capsules mixed with sterile solution and left for 3 minutes. warm regards Dr. Salama

yohan levy - (8/6/2015 5:25 PM)

Thank you dr salama for this great presentation. I actually would have two question for you The first One Is why have you previlege this technique over The regular tunneling aproach in this particular case? And the second more technical Is how To obtain this tétracycline paste Is it only the caplets mixed whith saline or do you purchase it as a paste Thank you

Maurice Salama - (11/29/2014 8:47 PM)

Mirna; No, I do engage the Perioderm ACDM with the sutures and use a sling mattress suture. I prefer OMNIA sutures PTFE or PGA or Monofilament. Thanks Dr. Salama

Mirna Munir74 - (11/29/2014 9:57 AM)

Hi dr Maurice, it was nice and simple procedure . One think i would like to ask, the stitching are not engage The perioderm at all?, thanks

Maurice Salama - (2/13/2014 8:25 PM)

Carl; Thank you. As Periosteum is only several microns in thickness "sharp" dissection allows for a supra-periosteal dissection. Instrumentation and technique is critical. Thanks Dr. Salama

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.

Cirugía plástica periodontal para aumento de tejido blando alrededor de implantes Premium Member Content

Cirugía plástica periodontal para aumento de tejido blando alrededor de implantes
En la actualidad, los objetivos de la odontología han ido evolucionado a partir de las necesidades y las demandas de los procesos quirúrgicos, así como por los defectos o lesiones del periodonto, sobretodo cuando intervienen factores estéticos, donde se requieren restauraciones prostodónticas con aspectos naturales, que busquen un equilibrio armónico entre la arquitectura gingival y el rostro en sí del paciente, aún más en los casos donde se presenta sonrisa gingival. Es por esto que se han estudiado varias técnicas mucogingivales para recubrimientos de recesiones, cambios de color por biótopo muy fino, aumento de volumen por pérdida del contorno gingival y colapso de los tejidos duros y blandos; siendo la más estudiada el injerto de tejido conectivo, como mecanismo de compensación y estabilidad para contribuir a una sonrisa más armónica y bella a la hora de la rehabilitación con implantes en el área anterior.

Managing the Extraction Site - Optimal Preservation and Enhancement Techniques
There is rarely a day that clinicians do not have to deal with an extraction site. If implant therapy is a consideration, then bone and soft tissue quantity and quality must be factored into treatment options. The ideal opportunity for bone preservation exists at the time of tooth extraction. All too often this opportunity is lost. Extraction techniques will be demonstrated that not only preserve but augment the amount of alveolar bone. The importance of piezosurgery, atraumatic surgical technique, the use of bone grafts, resorbable membranes and growth factors will be elucidated along with soft tissue enhancement.

A Periodontal-Restorative Approach to Achieving an Esthetic Outcome in Worn Dentition

A Periodontal-Restorative Approach to Achieving an Esthetic Outcome in Worn Dentition
Esthetic dentistry demands more of clinicians than just simeple knowledge of tooth anatomy and the proper dimensions of teeth. Dentists must also know and understand the proper positions of the teeth in relation to the gingiva, the lips, and entire face. Esthetic measurements are not the only important factors. Other considerations need to include the patient's phonetics and function. A example of a situation where this knowledge and awareness is imperative is in the case of the worn dentition (eg, attrition, abrasion, etc). This article addresses a simple case of how a patients esthetics have been compromised as a result of erosion as well as parafunctional activity (toothbrush abrasion) and how the patient was eventually restored with an interdisciplinary approach between the restorative dentist and the periodontal surgeon.
