Treatment of the Mesial Concavity of Maxillary 1st Bicuspids in Comprehensive Periodontal and Restorative Cases

Description:
This video will discuss one of the most difficult areas to treat definitively, the mesial concavity of maxillary 1st bicuspids. Techniques will be evaluated whereby the surgeon can treat the cause of periodontal problems rather than the effects. A step by step presentation of removal of the concavity and the proper restoration of the post treated root surface will be shown.

Always enjoy your presentations Danny.

Added to the favorites. This is just great work in perio and prostho terms. Thanks Dr. Melker

Tom; Always appreciative of comments that we all benefit from but can not quite figure out what exactly you are trying to say? "surely interbrushes make this destructive technique redundant"??? Dr. Salama

Tom Cassidy - (8/18/2013 6:19 PM)

surely interbrushes make this destuctive technique redundant

Danny,
Magnificant job as usual.Best regards.

5-0 Chromic gut. Obviously resorbs though if the tissue looks good at a week we remove them.

CHUNG WU YEH - (12/25/2012 9:00 AM)

Which kind of suture and needle do you use?

Daniel Melker - (12/24/2012 8:34 AM)

Ashwath a lot goes into an incision. Tori present, thin tissue etc. I may do a full thickness flap to the MGJ and then split the tissue apical. Or a split thickness flap from the beginning if the tissue and bone are adequate! My flaps are not large, just enough to get exposure but always adequate where we do not impinge on the blood supply of the flap!

Ashwath Gowda - (12/23/2012 8:23 PM)

Dr. Melker "it is very simple to suture to periosteum anywhere if you have made the proper incision" Can you please explain/describe, what would be a PROPER INCISION that makes SUTURING TO PERIOSTEUM SIMPLE? amgdds

Socket Shield; What Do We Know, What´s New? Premium Member Content

Socket Shield; What Do We Know, What´s New?
The Socket Shield technique is a “new” procedure with 10 years of documented successful cases worldwide. Lately we have done some new proposals like the way we extract the lingual slice, the relation of the shield level to the bone, the use of miniflaps, the distance between implant and shield just to mention some. On the other hand, the only minor “problem” with this technique is the “external shield exposure” and here I propose the method of successful treatment. We will see the convenience of applying SS to molars also on the light of the paper of Dr. Mataraso from 2009. The molar SS is a viable alternative rather than ridge preservation techniques.

Crown Lengthening in Comprehensive Esthetic Therapy: The Complete Surgical Video A to Z
In this complete surgical video, Dr. David Wong performs an esthetic crown lengthening procedure to address a "gummy smile" as part of comprehensive therapy and smile enhancement. Dr. Wong will outline the indications for crown lengthening surgery as opposed to orthognathic correction. The surgical video will demonstrate the complete crown lengthening surgery, including incision design, flap management and instrumentation. In addition, suturing and post-operative care will also be outlined in detail.

Managing the Extraction Site - Optimal Preservation and Enhancement Techniques
There is rarely a day that clinicians do not have to deal with an extraction site. If implant therapy is a consideration, then bone and soft tissue quantity and quality must be factored into treatment options. The ideal opportunity for bone preservation exists at the time of tooth extraction. All too often this opportunity is lost. Extraction techniques will be demonstrated that not only preserve but augment the amount of alveolar bone. The importance of piezosurgery, atraumatic surgical technique, the use of bone grafts, resorbable membranes and growth factors will be elucidated along with soft tissue enhancement.

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.
