The Collagen Ball Technique

Description:
This technique is the new reconstruction of tissue in implant treatments. In non-autologous tissue transplants, a large volume was able to be achieved. But, it can make a large volume by 100% non-autologous in soft tissue reconstruction. The collagen matrix was manually compressed into a hard round ball in order to prolong the time it takes to dissolve. The diameter of the ball was about 6-8 mm. Soft tissue reconstruction created a mean width increase of 4.59 mm.

I attended Dr Ernesto lee S>M>A>R>T> technique course . He uses tunnel to gain BONE volume. I was thinking use osteogen plugs made into compact balls soaked in GEM21 and instead of soft tissue gain buccal bone volume . let me know what you think? Dr. Yosef Kowalsky dryossi07@gmail .com

Very interesting technique, I've been using very compressed slices of collagen and open wound concept for tissues healing but never tried the ball technique. I will shortly and I'll keep you posted about the results. Thank you very much! You rock!

Thank you Dr.Cameron Edwards. Good question! Yes! I do instruct my patients some points.”don’t push” “don’t touch this area” “don’t pull your lip,because the sutures tear. The pypical pain response is a same level of normally extraction.

What an incredible technique!!! Dr. Toshiyuki, Do you recommend any special post-op instructions to your patients? What is the typical pain response following this procedure? Thank you!

mizuguchi toshiyuki - (1/24/2019 4:46 AM)

I want to thank all of the doctors who inquired about my tutorial. I wish you all the very best of luck with using it and please don’t hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

Thank you Dr.yosef kowalsky. I Administer penicillin after this operation for 3days. I do a partial thickness flap and sometime a full thickness flap. I don't feel the difference between partial and full.

mizuguchi toshiyuki - (1/17/2019 3:44 AM)

Thank you Dr.Alvin Aronoff. I didn't use Aviten and Mucograft together.But the mix is very interesting.I don't feel the difference between Mucograft and Avitene. We can't use this technique for increasing hard tissue. Because increasing hard tissue needs close wound. This technique doesn't need close wound. I think this technique doesn't need the membrane.

yosef kowalsky - (1/10/2019 2:01 PM)

Really enjoyed watching AGAIN. Question in the video clip you showed was it a full thickness flap for the APF cases and a split thickness for the Recovery cases?

What is your antibiotic protocol ?

Plastic-Esthetic Periodontal and Implant Surgery: A Microsurgical Approach - Part 1
This 2 part presentation is a comprehensive overview of the principles, indications, and clinical techniques of plastic-esthetic periodontal and implant microsurgery, focusing especially on minimal soft tissue trauma and maximally perfect wound closure. Microsurgery provides clinically relevant advantages over conventional macro-surgical concepts for regenerative and plastic-esthetic periodontal surgery, especially in the all-important esthetic zone. The microsurgical principles and procedures presented will described using high resolution multimedia.

Zero Bone Loss Protocol: Influence of Vertical Soft Tissue Thickness on Crestal Bone Stability Premium Member Content

Zero Bone Loss Protocol: Influence of Vertical Soft Tissue Thickness on Crestal Bone Stability
Crestal bone stability is considered to be important for bone preservation, longevity of implants and to prevent peri-implant tissue recession. Implant placement level is important for bone stability. Mucosal tissue thickness was shown to be the factor having impact on bone stability. It was showed that platform switching does not reduce crestal bone loss, if soft tissues at the implant placement are thin.

Prosthetic Soft Tissue Development From Single to Full Arch Reconstruction Premium Member Content

Prosthetic Soft Tissue Development From Single to Full Arch Reconstruction
In addition to surgical intervention is the creation of the specific emergence profile that is essential in the aesthetic zone. The emergence profile composed of 2 parts, the abutment and the subgingival part of the crown. The shape of abutment can be individually shaped so that it gives natural appearance and varies individually (depending on the depth, angulation and diameter of the implant). Sometimes it even dictates the implant position. From a surgical perspective, soft tissue height, position and thickness need to be diagnosed and corrected when needed. From the prosthetic point of view, the emergence profile has to be created to mimic the natural appearance and maintained over time in respect to the biological changes. The course teaches step by step how to be successful with implant prosthetics from single tooth, partially edentulous to full arch reconstruction.

Soft Tissue Waxup and Mock-Up as Key Factors in a Treatment Plan: Case Presentation
Rehabilitation of edentulous spaces in esthetic areas is a challenge to the clinician due to the loss of soft tissues. In these clinical situations, it would be desirable to evaluate and predict the gingival architecture to recover in the oral rehabilitation. To fulfill this need, the diagnostic was should anticipate the final rehabilitation with the integration of hard and soft tissue.

Similarities Between an Acellular Alloderm and a Palatal Graft for Tissue Augmentation
Predictable tissue regeneration presents a considerable challenge in the surgical treatment of gingival tissue defects. Soft-tissue augmentation procedures to increase the existing or create a new zone of attached keratinized gingival tissue have classically been performed using the patient's own masticatory mucosa and, more recently, using an acellular dermal allograft as the donor material. This article presents a clinical case whereby an acellular dermal allograft was placed on the buccal surface…
