Mastering Surgical Principles: Key to Constant Success

Description:
Clinical success depends on material and technique selection, but no material or technique will succeed if surgical principles are not respected. Attention to detail is imperative and mastering surgical principles is key to constant success. This course aims to review principles of flap design and elevation, as well as degranulation, debridement, suturing and wound stabilization of the most commonly performed periodontal, implant and advanced bone grafting procedures. Pharmacologic protocols and anesthesia will also be discussed.

Great question Vishal... The mucogingival junction can be restablished with an apically positioned flap. However, flap displacement (either coronally or apically) causes marginal flap necrosis and the consequence is loss of keratinized tissue. Hybrid methods of flap displacement (full-split-full, split-full, full-split) may overcome this problem to a certain extent but the success is totally dependent on periodontal and gingival biotype, and not gingival biotype alone. We should also be aware that flap advancement may shorten the vestible and cause limited access for oral hygiene.

VISHAL SINGH - (6/6/2015 12:27 AM)

comprehensive and informative presentation Dr Neiva....i have one question ....what happens to mucogingival junction in displaced and coronally advanced flap? should it not come back to its genetically determined position as suggested and proved in classical study by Aianmo et al? why are we losing the keratinized gingiva after manipulation of soft tissues in such surgeries?

Rodrigo Neiva - (6/5/2015 10:43 AM)

Ali, it depends. If the box is too close to the alveolar crest, a crown leghtening surgery is indicated. Radiographicaly you should see at least 3mm from this box to the alveolar crest.

Is it recommended to place light cure glass ionomer(resin modified GIC) on gingival floor of proximal box in a class 2 composite restoration? Thank you

Thank you. Excellent for a novice like myself who has tried to put the parts and pieces together. Your presentation was concise and touched all necessary protocols. I am sure I will review your presentation quite often. Loved your closing thoughts.

Is There One or More Reasons to Optimize the PRF & PRP Protocols? Future Trends in Dentistry, Orthopedics and Facial Aesthetics
The “Advanced” PRF (A-PRF) and “Injectable” PRF (I-PRF) protocols were designed with this new concept. Indications are numerous in all medical fields where we need regeneration: bone, cartilage, skin etc... However, the use of growth factors is not a guarantee of long term stability, as they are active only at the beginning of the process. Numerous rules of tissue engineering have to be applied to maintain the regenerated bone through an adequate blood supply: this lecture is an enlightenment on the biological and mechanical conditions for long term stability of the bone: “grafted bone” or “bone around implants”.

The Surgical-Restorative Digital Work Flow In Comprehensive Therapy
Traditional methods of treating our patients are being been replaced by digital processes, impacting our daily life. The intake of various technologies such as CBCT imaging, scanning, digital restorative design and CAD/CAM production have contributed to this movement. In the same time, restorative materials have also been developed and studied that have improved strength and esthetic qualities. All these capabilities create opportunities for better restorative outcome. This presentation will highlight a practice-based model centered on digitally enhanced treatment for efficient and predictable esthetic restorative outcomes.

Elements and Utilization of Suturing Needles

Elements and Utilization of Suturing Needles
The primary components of every suturing needle include the attachment end, body, and point. Traditional complications caused by threading have been eliminated by the advent of needles that are permanently attached to the suturing material. The suturing procedure is further simplified by the attached and press-fitted end of the needle (swaged) that enables the clinician to draw it through the tissue with less trauma.
