Wayne Moesching- very good explanation of technique and rational for doing it.

Luis Quiros - (4/2/2018 10:43 AM)

Do the presenter answer personally to the many questions I see posted?

Jannie Tromp - (3/26/2018 3:05 PM)

Dear Prof Zucchelli, I am a GP dentist and have done many free gingival grafts over the years. Most successful but always tended to leave a scar due to the fact that I have not removed the epithelium at all. Thank you for a very informative lecture. Indeed very helpful. Please could you provide me of the following information: 1. What multi filament sutures do you use for grafting? Any specific brand name and where to find it? 2. Where can I find 24% EDTA. Cannot trace it in the UK. Thank you. I cannot find Part 2 of your lecture. Will it be available or is it available and just that I could not find it on Dental XP? Best wishes Dr Jannie Tromp (U.K.) jannie.tromp@btinternet.com

Great information, thank you. Do you recommend a stent to cover the palate during the healing phase?

NIKOLAOS GREVENITIS - (2/25/2018 3:57 AM)

Brilliant video! !!so explanatory! !!

KM - (2/8/2018 9:08 PM)

will the palate repair itself in the same way or as well if the superficial layer is removed as opposed to the middle layer? let's say we would like to work on 4 quadrants, obviously 2 at a time, but how long will you wait before reharvesting from the palate at the same site. and will you expect better secondary tissue if you had taken only the middle layer of tissue the first time or only the superficial layer? or will the newly regrown tissue be about the same in both cases? thank you, kelly mayer

Having subscribed to the Zuchhelli channel, this is one of many excellent presentations on soft-tissue management. Incredibly detailed-oriented learning experience.

Excellent explanation!!! Thank you!!

Really great presentation and masterful micro-surgical tissue handling.I really learned a lot. Thank you for sharing

Emerging Perspectives in Soft Tissue Augmentation: Evolving Tools, Techniques & Materials
Soft tissue root coverage microsurgery and pontic site enhancement are frequently utilized periodontal plastic surgery techniques to create an ideal restorative frame for teeth, pontics and implants. Tunnel, Semilunar, VISTA etc. are among the new age techniques highlighted in this growing area of periodontal microsurgery. New autologous tissue harvest techniques, Allograft ACDM and Bioactive Modifiers have all changed the way we are capable of managing soft tissue deficiencies and have assisted the clinician in improving the healing qualities of these minimally invasive techniques. This lecture will cover site preparation techniques for conventional dentistry as well as prior to and after implant placement.

Bone Augmentation & Vascular Enhancement Concepts: It’s Time to Make it Simple! Premium Member Content

Bone Augmentation & Vascular Enhancement Concepts: It’s Time to Make it Simple!
Growing bone is fascinating, and clinicians have developed many techniques in that matter, most of them restricted to an elite. Yes, it does take a lot of skills to harvest bone blocks, to stabilize them with screws etc, and without forgetting the soft tissue handling as it can be a real challenge to cover the bone graft especially for a vertical augmentation. The purpose of this presentation is to make the participant think biology first and not mechanic first. A biological thinking will dramatically simplify vertical and/or horizontal bone augmentation procedures. We will also be introducing a new approach for the simplification of soft tissue handling: the Soft Brushing Technique, that will allow the coronal advancement of both buccal and lingual flaps, but also the palatal flap without the need for periosteal releasing incisions.

Managing Esthetic Implant Complications Premium Member Content

Managing Esthetic Implant Complications
Dental implant success today is judged not only by osseointegration but also by bone, tissue stability and of course long term esthetic results. Cosmetic predictability can often be difficult to attain, and esthetic implant failures can be multifactorial and patient management issues. Once esthetic implant failures occur, many cannot be fully corrected. Some complications must be addressed by an interdisciplinary dental team. In this summary of case reports, surgical considerations are provided, including cases of facial asymmetry/recession due to facial implant placement or bone loss resulting from technique/treatment failures, as well as papillary deficiencies. Restorative considerations for correcting failures are also discussed.

Two Immediate Temporization Methods Exemplified: Flap vs. Punch Technique in Implant Surgery

Two Immediate Temporization Methods Exemplified: Flap vs. Punch Technique in Implant Surgery
Protocols and techniques for immediate tooth replacement in the esthetic zone have become more popular and predictable within the past decade. Two different clinical scenarios are presented where immediate temporization of implants placed into healed or augmented ridges is exemplified. The benefits of augmentation prior to implant placement and temporization are that flap elevation is not required; therefore, the blood supply to the labial plate is not compromised, thereby eliminating potential midfacial recession. In addition, the soft tissue subgingival shape of the temporary crown can be non-surgically sculpted at the time of implant placement since the patient is already anesthetized.

Fibrinogen-Induced Regeneration Sealing Technique (F.I.R.S.T.). An Improvement and Modification of Traditional GBR: A Report of Two Cases

Fibrinogen-Induced Regeneration Sealing Technique (F.I.R.S.T.). An Improvement and Modification of Traditional GBR: A Report of Two Cases
Guided bone regeneration is a technique widely known, clinicians know very well indications and limitations of this technique. One of the principles to achieve bone augmentation and formation resides in the stability of the blood clot forming under a barrier membrane. The technique proposed in this article has the goal of providing stabilization to the bone graft by adding fibrin sealant (FS) to the bone graft and also using the fibrin sealant to attach a bone membrane (cortical lamina) to the recipient site. This simple modification of the technique of guided bone regeneration is presented in two successful cases.

A Novel Approach to Root Coverage: The Pinhole Surgical Technique

A Novel Approach to Root Coverage: The Pinhole Surgical Technique
Free connective tissue graft techniques are currently considered the most predictable surgical method for root coverage. However, morbidity associated with secondary graft sites has generated interest in other methods. The purpose of this study was to investigate the feasability of a novel surgical approach to root coverage: the pinhole surgical technique (PST). The retrospective study examined the results of PST used for 43 consecutive patients on 121 recession sites, of which 85 were Class I or II and 36 were Class III. The documented results indicate that PST holds promise as a minimally invasive, predictable, effective, and time and cost-effective method for obtaining optimal patient-based outcomes.
