Tunneling Technique for Treating Multiple Recession Defects - A Surgical Technique Video

Description:
In this surgical video, Dr. Maurice Salama describes the utilization of the tunneling technique in treating multiple recession defects in a thin tissue environment. Flap management and release as well as instrumentation are described in great detail along with suturing. Harvesting and manipulation of an autogeneous soft tissue graft is also well demonstrated.

Siavash; Yes, I am running LIVE Hands-on Courses. Please be in touch through XP "Contact us" above...

Hi Dr Salama, Are you still holding hands-on courses for soft-tissue management/grafting?

Jack Nagrani - (12/30/2020 3:52 PM)

Very nicely done, Dr. Salama.! I've enjoyed your destination courses very much, I look forward to the next!

Maurice Salama - (8/17/2020 8:39 AM)

Thank you Riyaz and Mahmoud. Kevin, the answer to your question below is YES. You can use this technique for almost all types of recession defects. Dr. Salama

Thx u

mahmoud shamaei - (5/7/2017 5:57 PM)

very useful, thank you Maurice

kevin potocsky - (6/22/2016 9:26 AM)

can you tunnel with bigger recession defects like 5 mm too if doing multiple teeth or is better to flap?

Maurice Salama - (1/4/2016 8:09 AM)

Loyd; Thanks for your interest. There is always time but as we know there is a wait list on these courses and things happen. I will have someone at XP be in touch ASAP. regards Dr. Salama

Loyd Dowd - (1/4/2016 12:15 AM)

Your soft tissue course in San Franscisco in March is sold out according to this website. It also says that you're not giving another soft tissue course in 2016. So, that brings me to the question of how to learn your soft tissue techniques this year instead of waiting for another soft tissue course in 2017. I'm 66 years old and don't have any time to waste. Thanks Loyd

Revisiting the Papilla in 2015 - Part 1 of 2
In dental esthetics the regeneration of a compromised papilla , remains the most complex aspect of any reconstructive endeavor. The original 5mm Rule was found to exist only for a papilla bordered by 2 teeth and was expanded into a classification of 6 Types dependent on alternative adjacent support.e. implants or pontics.

The Lingually Positioned Flap For Full Arch Soft Tissue Management
One of the least understood and poorly managed aspects of soft tissue management of the implant patient is the lack of keratinized tissues on the lingual aspect of the ridge. This presentation specifically addresses this issue and describes a very useful and predictable flap and grafting approach to address this common shortcoming of treatment. The Lingually Positioned Flap in combination with vestibuloplasty and free gingival grafting will be highlighted and described.

Esthetic Tissue Reconstruction Around Implants - Part 2 of 2 Premium Member Content

Esthetic Tissue Reconstruction Around Implants - Part 2 of 2
Esthetics in implant-supported restorations is an important clinical objective in contemporary dentistry. Understanding the biological behavior of hard and soft tissues following tooth extraction is the first step to anticipate the physiological tissue remodeling and its consequences. Our objective in these 2 sequential lectures was to provide straightforward decision trees related to several clinical scenarios observed in routine clinical practice. The 3 fundamental pillars for peri-implant excellence are: restorative-driven implant position, hard and soft tissue reconstruction using different biomaterials and grafts, and prosthetic management. Using this philosophical approach seems to provide esthetic and stable results over time irrespective of the initial clinical condition.

From Extraction to Prosthetic Restoration: Considerations for the Esthetic Zone
This webinar will highlight surgical and restorative techniques to accomplish predictable outcomes in the esthetic zone with implant therapy. Treatment modalities will be demonstrated with high quality photography and case series discussion. Surgical modalities presented will include ridge preservation, the current evidence on the use of growth factors such as PRP and hr-PDGF bb. Also timing of implant placement as well as soft and hard tissue augmentation will be discussed. Special emphasis will be placed on immediate provisionalization of implants to accomplish optimal peri-implant mucosa architecture. Techniques to transfer provisional emergence profile to the final restoration will be presented.

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.

Mucosal Coronally Positioned Flap for the Management of Excessive Gingival Display in the Presence of Hypermobility of the Upper Lip and Vertical Maxillary Excess: A Case Report

Mucosal Coronally Positioned Flap for the Management of Excessive Gingival Display in the Presence of Hypermobility of the Upper Lip and Vertical Maxillary Excess: A Case Report
Excessive gingival display is a frequent finding that can occur because of various intraoral or extraoral etiologies. This report describes the use of a mucosal coronally positioned flap for the management of a gummy smile associated with vertical maxillary excess and hypermobility of the upper lip. For patients desiring a less invasive alternative to orthognathic surgery, the mucosal coronally positioned flap is a viable alternative. We demonstrate short-term successful use of this technique for the management of excessive gingival display in the presence of slight vertical maxillary excess and hypermobility of the upper lip. Long-term follow-up studies are needed to determine stability of the results.

Decision Making for Soft and Hard Tissue Augmentation in Surgically Facilitated Orthodontics

Decision Making for Soft and Hard Tissue Augmentation in Surgically Facilitated Orthodontics
The purpose of this article is to present a decision-making algorithm for soft and hard tissue augmentation in surgically facilitated orthodontics (SFOT). In cases where there is adequate hard and soft tissue envelope, selective corticotomies may be adequate. In cases, where the existing hard and soft tissue anatomy is inadequate, hard and soft tissue augmentation is recommended. Also, hard and soft tissue augmentation is recommended to avoid teeth extractions during orthodontics.
