The Rotated Palatal Pedicle Flap:  A Powerful Connective Tissue Grafting Technique

Description:
The rotated palatal pedicle flap was first described in 1999 and has become an essential tool in our box of tricks for implant and soft tissue and bone augmentation surgery. It is a vascularized pedicle graft that helps us achieve excellent soft tissue bulk, increased amounts of attached gingiva and awesome soft tissue contours.  It is also important in double flap closure for passive flap closure and many many more treatment options. This webinar will detail the exact techniques to allow you to carry out this excellent grafting procedure as well as many tips and tricks for simplifying and demystifying this technique.

Howie: Great presentation-thanks. Maurice talks about staying 4mm from midline to avoid risk of critical anatomy. What are the risks as you cross the midline in the anterior as far as vascular invasion?

Melissa Zettler - (3/1/2019 8:12 PM)

Thanks for the great video

Fibrin Assisted Soft Tissue Promotion (FASTP)
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.

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.
