Summary:

Gingival recession is a clinical condition encountered in many dental practices during routine patient care. Fortunately, there are a variety of surgical procedures that the clinician can use to address gingival recession and return the patient to optimal health and aesthetics. As dental professionals gain a higher awareness of the available surgical materials and restorative techniques, the success and predictability of treatment for gingival recession on single and multiple adjacent teeth has increased accordingly.

Esthetic Correction of Gingival Recession Using a Modified Tunnel Technique and an Acellular Dermal Connective Tissue Allograft
Esthetic correction of gingival recession is an important goal of periodontal therapy. This article describes a surgical technique that combines a modified tunnel technique and an acellular dermal connective tissue allograft. With the aid of vertical incisions, a tunnel is created under the buccal mucosa of the affected tooth. These incisions enable easy access for graft placement and create mobility for gingival coronal positioning. The use of an accelular dermal connective tissue allograft eliminates the need for a surgical palatal donor site. This minimizes post-surgical complications.

Soft Tissue Procedures Related to Dental Implant Surgery

Soft Tissue Procedures Related to Dental Implant Surgery
Clinicians often encounter an insufficient amount of keratinized soft tissue in the proposed implant site. When this occurs, the question arises: Should the necessary softtissue manipulation be performed before, during, or after placement of the implant? There are three answers or scenarios for this question, according to Lee Silverstein, DDS, associate professor at the Medical College of Georgia in Augusta.

Combination Approach to Site Development: Autologous Tissue Premium Member Content

Combination Approach to Site Development: Autologous Tissue
The ideal grafting material should be biocompatible, biodegradable, easy handling, cost-effective, minimize inflammation and foreign body reaction, not transmit diseases and assure a long-term restoration and preservation of the alveolar ridge. Is there any better scenario to prove the grafting material properties than the worst scenario in esthetic implant dentistry: central-lateral, site by site? In this lecture, the combination approach to the site preservation and development utilizing exclusively autologous tissues is explained, based on the available literature and presenter´s experience and shown on numerous central-lateral cases.

Implant Removal & Ridge Preservation in Infected Site: A Technique Video Premium Member Content

Implant Removal & Ridge Preservation in Infected Site: A Technique Video
More often in clinical practice we are faced with failing implants that require careful removal and reconstruction of the residual bone deficiencies. This step by step technique video takes you though the critical clinical steps in implant removal, debridement, bone augmentation utilizing blood born biomodifiers and Titanium mesh as well as Flap release and tension free closure. Additional keys include intra-marrow penetration of the recipient site as well as post op bandages that minimize hematoma formation.

Esthetics Around Implants; Introducing the "Snake" Technique ! Premium Member Content

Esthetics Around Implants; Introducing the "Snake" Technique !
The “Snake technique” is a new concept in minimally invasive surgery.  It is based on old fundamental principles that offer reliable and predictable results. The “Snake technique” is a pediculated gingival graft, which unlike free grafts (CTG, FGG) offers several advantages and a lower surgical stress for our patients by having no need for an additional surgical site. As the small details make the biggest differences, the “Snake technique” may add value to both the surgical course of therapies selected as well as the relationship with our patients who demand minimally invasive treatments.

Soft Tissue Donor Selection: “Connective Tissue Grafts Are Not All Created Equal”
With the evolution of periodontal plastic surgery soft tissue grafting is becoming more and more essential in modern dentistry, whether around natural teeth or dental implants. Many donor grafts have been available to choose from, with autogenous grafts are still being the gold standard, in tissue grafting procedures. This webinar is for clinicians who are interested in different tissue grafts procedures but want to know more about the nature of each graft and what to expect in terms of clinical results. In this webinar we will discuss the differences between different autogenous soft tissue grafts and how to utilize them properly to achieve the best results in various clinical situations.

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.
