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

Fibrin Assisted Soft Tissue Promotion (FASTP)
Soft tissue recession around teeth and implants is an epidemic problem in the field of dentistry. A predictable and long-term soft tissue augmentation outcome is primarily dependent on proper diagnosis, prognosis and treatment planning. Harvesting limitations of autogenous tissue from the palate represent a true challenge when treating patients with multiple recessions or gingival deformities around teeth and dental implants. The Advanced Platelet Rich Fibrin (APRF) and injectable platelet-rich fibrin (iPRF) are promising tissue promoters that can be a suitable alternative option.

Non-Surgical Periodontal Therapy: Decision Making in the 21st Century
Non-surgical periodontal therapy is a vital part of everyday dental practice. Since the majority of periodontal therapy is performed by general dentists and dental hygienists, it is critical that clinicians have all of the requisite skills and information needed to perform these services at the highest level possible. The purpose of this presentation is to provide the latest evidence- and practice- based information on periodontal debridement and adjunctive therapies that can improve patient outcomes. Though surgical procedures may still need to be performed in some sites, the majority of inflammatory periodontal disease can be eliminated or reduced significantly using the techniques and protocols discussed in this educational segment on non-surgical periodontal therapy.

Advanced Immediate Implant Placement Strategies Including the Socket Shield (SS) Technique and its Complications Premium Member Content

Advanced Immediate Implant Placement Strategies Including the Socket Shield (SS) Technique and its Complications
Immediate implant placement in the aesthetic zone has become a controversial topic with regards to the long term aesthetic demands that both the profession and our patients have placed on this treatment modality. Since the controversy broke a few years ago there have been a number of outstanding developments that have revolutionized the way we do immediate implant placement. Soft tissue augmentations using the tunnel technique as well as the socket whiled technique are 2 of these techniques which form the baseline of treatment in our clinic. This lecture will go through all the updated protocols of immediate implant placement supported by the literature as well as deal specifically with the finer details of the socket whiled technique including step by step photos and video of the technique. More importantly it will cover numerous complications that we have had to deal with over the last few years that we have been doing this technique.
