Questions & Comments

Parviz; When the bone is present interproximally (5mm or less to contact Tarnow 1992 JP) there is NO need to worry about the papilla. I prefer to raise the entire papilla in the flap to avid scarring and fibrous tissue healing. Thanks for your post. Dr. Salama

parviz roshanzamir - (9/22/2013 2:35 AM)

Dr. Salama,
won't you prefer to split the papilla rather than raising them to minimize the potential loss of papilla height ?
Regards,
Parviz

Shailesh; In this area do not do a gingivectomy only ostectomy and apically position flap. Thanks Dr. Salama

Shailesh Swami - (3/25/2013 8:12 AM)

Dr Salama thank you for the excellent presentation. I have question about crown lengthening in the non esthetic zone. I have a patient with Sjogren`s syndrome who has multiple cavities at or below the gum levels. How can you do a crown lengthening at the lingual aspect of the mandibular molars for e.g. where there is no keratinised tissue left?

Maurice Salama - (3/3/2013 6:32 PM)

John; Thanks. I utilize only the PLUG of PRGF not the liquid for extraction sockets. It does set up. Yes, Vegas was a huge success. Hope to see you soon. Regards Dr. Salama

I use prgp for my implant/socket preservation. Does it not set up. Do you aspirate it in some sort of syringe to deliver it to the mouth. When during the procedure do you draw the blood and how much working time do you have? Nice video and cudos for a great Las Vegas meeting. John Bishop

Maurice Salama - (2/29/2012 12:32 PM)

Jan; Thanks. I prefer PRGF or PRF blood borne bioactive modifiers over recombinant forms of bioactive growth factors such as emdogain and Gem-21 but I do utilze them when I must.
No Preidex just warm salt water starting at day 3.
good luck Dr. Salama

Jan Bublik653 - (2/29/2012 6:34 AM)

Thanks for the short video. I understand the Enamel matrix protein use in periodontal surgery. What is your rationale for using Emdogain in these cases rather than let's say PRP? Have you noticed a difference in healing (how the tissue looks to you) using Emdogain vs nothing? Do you put the patient on 0.12% CHX afterwards while using Emdogain? Jan

Excellent Video. Very informative and educational. Many thanks, Dr. Salama.

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.

The Evolving Role of Soft Tissue Enhancement in Esthetic Reconstructive Dentistry Premium Member Content

The Evolving Role of Soft Tissue Enhancement in Esthetic Reconstructive Dentistry
Soft tissue grafting techniques, new regenerative materials and bioactivators will be highlighted. The expanding role of allograft materials (Perioderm), platelet rich in growth factors (PRGF, PRF), and when to utilize them will be suggested. The ability of these combined protocols to alter the soft tissue profile around natural teeth, implants, and dentulous ridges, will be reviewed as to its critical role in "Complete Esthetics".

The Root Submergence Technique at Single Tooth Sites to Short-Span Edentulous Sites: A Step-By-Step Partial Extraction Therapy Protocol
Submerging roots for ridge preservation was the earliest partial extraction therapy and has been described since the 1970s. Despite the approximately 47 animal and human studies published since, an updated and contemporary step-by-step protocol has not yet been provided. This technique report describes in detail how to manage submerged roots at single tooth sites and at short-span edentulous areas.

Achieving Predictable Connective Tissue Root Coverage

Achieving Predictable Connective Tissue Root Coverage
Gingival recession creates esthetic issues. These issues may be corrected from a restomtive perspective by the placement of composite resin or ceramic over the exposed root. But this approach often results in a gingival-incisal length that does not blend esthetically with tire adjacent teeth. Often accompanying the gingival recession is a decrease in the band of attached gingiva. The wider the band of attached gingiva, the more stabIe the long-term result Therefore, surgical correction of the recession…

Mucosal Coronally Positioned Flap for the Management of Excessive Gingival Display in the Presence of Hypermobility of the Upper Lip and Vertical Maxillary Excess: A Case Report

Mucosal Coronally Positioned Flap for the Management of Excessive Gingival Display in the Presence of Hypermobility of the Upper Lip and Vertical Maxillary Excess: A Case Report
Excessive gingival display is a frequent finding that can occur because of various intraoral or extraoral etiologies. This report describes the use of a mucosal coronally positioned flap for the management of a gummy smile associated with vertical maxillary excess and hypermobility of the upper lip. For patients desiring a less invasive alternative to orthognathic surgery, the mucosal coronally positioned flap is a viable alternative. We demonstrate short-term successful use of this technique for the management of excessive gingival display in the presence of slight vertical maxillary excess and hypermobility of the upper lip. Long-term follow-up studies are needed to determine stability of the results.
