The Evolving Role of Soft Tissue Enhancement in Esthetic Reconstructive Dentistry - Part 1 of 3

Description:
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".

Questions & Comments
Helena DeLuca - (4/16/2014 4:30 PM)

What is the recommended periodontal dressing to use? Thank you

FARHAN DURRANI492 - (2/11/2014 1:43 PM)

connective tissue graft is better the latest studies say that /pubmed

Maurice Salama - (12/21/2013 7:58 AM)

Shawn; Yes, this is my own criterai but remains UNPUBLISHED in the literature. 2-3mm of remaining KT is absolute requirment for me to select ACDM over CTG. Thanks Dr. Salama

Shawn Frawley - (12/20/2013 9:02 PM)

Thanks for the excellent presentation. Would you generally use the amount of keratinized tissue as a criteria for choosing between ACD and palate tissue. Thanks, Kevin Frawley

Maurice Salama - (6/24/2012 10:17 AM)

Borna and Band; Thanks for the posts. 50-50 mixture of tetracycline and sterile solution to make a paste like consistency is all that is required. Regarding the tunnel Kit from Devemed, yes Band I do really believe it makes the procedure much more predictable. thanks Dr. Salama

BORNA RASHIDISANGSARY - (6/24/2012 6:15 AM)

Thank you so much for these very informative lectures. I have a question for you; what proportion of tetracycline and lidocaine are mixed and applied to denuded root surface? Thank you again Dear Dr. Salama

Band Ditto64 - (1/21/2012 2:12 PM)

Dr. Salama; just purchased the Tunnel kit from the site. Excellent and easy to do with nice discount. Thanks Band

Band Ditto64 - (1/17/2012 10:27 PM)

Dr. Salama, this presentation really clarified several things for me regarding soft tissue grafting and the possibilities. many thanks Band

Maurice Salama - (10/22/2011 9:33 PM)

Welcome Nicolas. Yes, you can place the graft either way. Supra or Sub Periosteal although with tunneling the idea would be to perform a sharp disection supra-periosteal if possible. welcome to the forum. Dr. Salama

Revisiting the Papilla in 2016 - Part 2 of 2 Premium Member Content

Revisiting the Papilla in 2016 - Part 2 of 2
In dental esthetics the regeneration of a compromised papilla , remains the most complex aspect of any reconstructive endeavor. The original 5mm Rule was found to exist only for a papilla bordered by 2 teeth and was expanded into a classification of 6 Types dependent on alternative adjacent support.e. implants or pontics.

Predictability of Root Coverage Procedures: Clinical Scenarios & Evidence-Based Treatment Options Premium Member Content

Predictability of Root Coverage Procedures: Clinical Scenarios & Evidence-Based Treatment Options
Root coverage (RC) procedures have long been used for the treatment of gingival recession (GR). During daily practice, clinicians are required to deal with diverse clinical scenarios and to provide the most adequate treatment options for each particular condition based on the best evidence available, the clinician’s skills, and the patients’ desires.

A Complete 3D Strategy to Esthetic Cross Arch Restorations: Guide Surgery & Soft Tissue Interface Management with CAD-CAM Restorations Premium Member Content

A Complete 3D Strategy to Esthetic Cross Arch Restorations: Guide Surgery & Soft Tissue Interface Management with CAD-CAM Restorations
I will highlight the benefits achievable through the use of guided planning, guided laboratory procedures and guided surgeries, while maintaining the fundamental principles of osseointegration. My ten years of scientifically proven experience and clinical follow-up in guided surgery and CAD/CAM biomimetic restorations will be shared with the audience to support clinical protocols as well as practical tips and tricks with case studies demonstrating each clinical scenario. New surgical and prosthetic improvements and novel proof-of-concept techniques to enhance the natural soft tissue integration will be presented. Viewers will also broaden their knowledge of hard and soft tissue surgical management through the guided surgery, discovering the latest implant designs and prosthetic interfaces designed to achieve an ideal soft tissue seal and bone level over time.

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.

Soft Tissue Cone-Beam Computed Tomography: A Novel Method for the Measurement of Gingival Tissue and the Dimensions of the Dentogingival Unit
The purpose of the present study was to develop a soft tissue cone-beam computed tomography (ST-CBCT) to improve soft tissue image quality and allow the determination of the dimensions and relationships of the structures of the dentogingival unit. Two separate CBCT scans were obtained from three patients with different periodontal biotypes. The first was a scan following standard methods; however, for the ST-CBCT the patients wore a plastic lip retractor and retracted their tongues toward the floor of their mouths.

Changes in Soft Tissue Dimensions Following Three Different Techniques of Stage-Two Surgery: A Case Series Report

Changes in Soft Tissue Dimensions Following Three Different Techniques of Stage-Two Surgery: A Case Series Report
The aim of this case report is to compare the resilts of the increase in keratinized mucosa using three different techniques of stage-two surgery. Thirty-two patients with one to eight dental implants who received prosthetic rehabilitation of the maxilla were included. Patients were divided into three groups based on preoperative anatomical considerations. Stage-two surgery was performed using wither the apically repositioned flap, the roll flap, or an apically repositioned flap combined with a connective tissue graft.

Esthetic Correction of Gingival Recession Using a Modified Tunnel Technique and an Acellular Dermal Connective Tissue Allograft

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.
