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.

Next Generation Biomaterials for Bone and Periodontal Regeneration - Part 1 of 2 Premium Member Content

Next Generation Biomaterials for Bone and Periodontal Regeneration - Part 1 of 2
New and innovative biomaterials are being discovered or created in laboratories at an unprecedented rate, but many entirely unknown to practicing clinicians. This course addresses this gap in knowledge by summarizing some of the groundbreaking research performed to date on this topic and provides case examples of these biomaterials at work. The course begins with a review of the biologic background and applications of bone grafting materials utilized in dentistry. Thereafter, new and exciting updates on Platelet Rich Fibrin, Emdogain/Osteogain, Tetranite and Vitamin D deficiency are discussed with respect to their ability to promote either bone or periodontal regeneration.

The Magnetic Mallet and It’s Use in Daily Practice - Clinical Perspective
This innovative machine called the Magnetic Mallet is a device based on a EU/US patent of invention in oral surgery. It uses magnetism to generate a very impressive acceleration of the osteotomes that maximizes the forces applied to the bone (making the procedure fast and efficient) and in the meantime minimizes the inertia and discomfort for the patient. Such speed doesn’t cause any bone heating therefore irrigation water is also not needed!

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.
