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 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)

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

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

the video did not show suture placement between 1st and 2nd bicuspid.Where did the suture thread seen at the base of the papilla between the bicuspids came from ?

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 Critical “Pink” Interface in Esthetic Dentistry—A Cross-Disciplinary Approach: Options, Limitations, and Solutions Premium Member Content

The Critical “Pink” Interface in Esthetic Dentistry—A Cross-Disciplinary Approach: Options, Limitations, and Solutions
This program is a perspective into how cross- disciplinary interface planning has become and integral part of clinical esthetic dentistry, in particular implant diagnostics. Today it is essential to combine “white” tooth esthetics with “pink” gingival aspects. Understanding the individual prosthetic, surgical, and biologic limitations is part of innovative treatment-planning protocols developed in an approach to provide, simplify, and expedite minimally invasive limited therapy. Preemptive CBCT and 3D CAD/CAM planning of soft and hard tissue procedures, implant placement, ridge reduction, and restorative design now utilize new innovative protocols for the entire restoration from top to bottom - implant, abutment, and restoration - and the interfaces in between.

Soft Tissue Conversion For Increased Predictability of Bone Graft in Large Ridge Defects Premium Member Content

Soft Tissue Conversion For Increased Predictability of Bone Graft in Large Ridge Defects
In this video, Dr. H. Ryan Kazemi presents a technique for conversion of thin tissue biotype to thick tissue biotype improving the quality and quantity of soft tissue necessary for predictable bone augmentation of large ridge defects. Improved soft tissue thickness will decrease risk of tissue dehiscence and provide a better quality of tissue for flap repositioning and suturing.

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.

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.

Diagnosis, Planning, & Treatment of Altered Passive Eruption; From a Periodontists Perspective
This presentation will teach how to diagnose cases of altered passive eruption based on the radiographic evaluation (with peri-apical rx and CBCT) and how to plan and document a surgical procedure aimed to ‘uncover’ the beautiful and natural hidden enamel. In a world where esthetics is becoming more and more a concern a simple periodontal plastic surgical procedure can re-establish esthetic and balance to the patients affected by this condition.

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

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.
