It is very excited minimally invasive periodontal surgery. It is just what Dr Salama mentions "it is simple" but I think it need a lot of practice of doing this.

Xp friends; I will record the Model based Tunnel procedure in HD format. We have scheduled it for the coming month and will voiceover after editing. Keep an eye out for it. The older video no longer can be utilized due to the older format.
Dr. Salama

Hi Maurice, what about the video about tunneling technic on MODEL?
Thank you
Yehouda Rubin

Yehuda RUBIN - (1/30/2012 3:37 PM)

Please Maurice, coul'd you post the tunneling technic seen on MODEL that we saw in your course given in Tel-Aviv
Thank you very much
Yehuda RUBIN (ISRAEL)

Maurice Salama - (12/14/2011 5:34 PM)

Yehuda and all my friends; Thank you for reminding me. It will be voiced over in the coming weeks and then posted after the New Year. I am hopeful to do more model based videos in the future to add as well. The yellow material used on the roots is tetracycline paste used to condition the cementum for fibroblast adhesion. The tunnel instruments are sold thru Devemed and can be purchased directly on this site www.dentalxp.com. As for sutures, 6.0 Polypropylene or 5.0 Nylon work very well. My next Soft Tissue Hands-on course is here in Atlanta, March 9-10th. Thank you all for your posts and interest. many thanks Dr. Salama

Yehuda RUBIN - (12/14/2011 5:25 PM)

Dr Maurice Salama, as you suggested, coul'd you please put on dental-xp, the video of tunneling technique done on the model (not on a patient)that you shown us in your course in Tel-aviv . So it will be much easier to remember how to use each instrument to ahieve the procedure
Thank you
Yehuda Rubin (Israel)

nice minor surgery,congratulations,but whats that yellow material used on the neck of bicuspid?used for what?whats the proper angulation for the first palatal incision?thank you doc.

pei peng - (9/25/2011 7:16 PM)

DR.Salama, where I can get the tunnel instruments that you are using in thisvideo? thanks

Soft Tissue Grafting Around Compromised Dental Implants in the Esthetic Zone
Dental implant esthetics can be challenging, but these challenges are magnified when a patient has had multiple failed implant and bone grafting surgeries.  This video demonstrates the treatment of one such case.  This is a surgical video demonstrating the VIP-CT (Vascularized Interpositional Connective Tissue) graft.  While multiple treatment options exist, this start-to-finish video highlights the patient's initial presentation, the surgical technique, and the final outcome at 2 years.

The Basics of Root Coverage Surgery with Acellular Dermal Grafts: A STEP-BY-STEP Live Patient Demonstration
Soft tissue grafting is rapidly playing a larger role in restorative, esthetic, and reconstructive dentistry. While conventional grafting techniques have several limitations, newer grafting materials and techniques make it easier for patients to say "yes" to the treatment they truly need and desire. In this webinar, Dr. Wong will perform a step-by-step demonstration using Perioderm to correct multiple gingival recession defects. Soft tissue allografts are quickly becoming a "game changer" in dentistry, making optimum dentistry more than an ideal... it's a reality.

Fibrin Assisted Soft Tissue Promotion (FASTP) - A New Perspective in Periodontal Plastic Surgery
Soft tissue recession around teeth and implants is an epidemic problem in the field of dentistry. A predictable and long-term soft tissue augmentation outcome is primarily dependent on proper diagnosis, prognosis and treatment planning. Harvesting limitations of autogenous tissue from the palate represent a true challenge when treating patients with multiple recessions or gingival deformities around teeth and dental implants. The Advanced Platelet Rich Fibrin (APRF) and injectable platelet-rich fibrin (iPRF) are promising tissue promoters that can be a suitable alternative option.

Is There One or More Reasons to Optimize the PRF & PRP Protocols? Future Trends in Dentistry, Orthopedics and Facial Aesthetics Premium Member Content

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 Endentulous Ridge in Fixed Prosthodontics

The Endentulous Ridge in Fixed Prosthodontics
In those clinical situations in which missing teeth are replaced with fixed prosthodontics, the clinician is faced with the task of fabricating the pontics to fulfill the requirements of esthetics, form and function, and oral physiotherapy. The relationship of the "dummy tooth", or pontic to the underlying ridge is inordinately complex, since the esthetic requirements invariably conflict with those of function and hygiene. Although pontic designs have been discussed in some depth in the literature,…

Soft Tissue Procedures Related to Dental Implant Surgery
Clinicians often encounter an insufficient amount of keratinized soft tissue in the proposed implant site. When this occurs, the question arises: Should the necessary softtissue manipulation be performed before, during, or after placement of the implant? There are three answers or scenarios for this question, according to Lee Silverstein, DDS, associate professor at the Medical College of Georgia in Augusta.
