David; Good question. I am not sure why not. As for today, I would most likely use a similar approach but with a Tunnel Approach and PRGF/PRF instead. Thanks Dr. Salama

Maurice,
In the absence of PRP can the alloderm be used as a carrier for the emdogain (enamel matrix derivative)? question from

nice technique... this was in 2007... means 7 yrs ago,,, so what do think about this technique now ?? u still use it ???

Dear Dr.Salama. Thank you for the great presentation. I got three questions for you. Is the complete submergence of the graft also necessary for palatal connective tissue grafts and if so - where is the root coverage effect beside the thickening of the tissue? Why do you generally prefer connective tissue grafts? Is there a greater risk of inflammation with allografts? Do you therefore always have to use PRGF? Don´t you risk the papilla with these flap designs. I wonder why the tunnel technique is not utilized in the other videos about alloderm as well - like Dr. Allen´s presentation. Best regards.

Thank Dr. Maurice, is Emdogain a gel? and can I utilize with fibrine membrane (PRGF)?

Thank Dr. Maurice, is Emdogain a gel? and utilize with fibrine membrane (PRGF)?

Thank you

Terek;
No difference in the way you suggest suturing and I prefer to trim the alloderm and any sharp edges. Most important not to have alloderm over vertical incision lines.

Tarek Ali - (7/18/2009 2:14 AM)

Hi Dr. Salama, thank you for the great video. I have two questions for you: 1. Would it make any difference if you were to secure the Alloderm individually first using something like 5-0 Vicryl first then coronally advance the flap to completely cover it ? 2. Is trimming the sharp edges of the Alloderm advantageous in any way or not ? Once again thank you and looking forward to your reply.

S.M.A.R.T. Minimally Invasive Bone Grafting
Introduction to the S.M.A.R.T. TM Minimally Invasive Bone Grafting Technique is a novel minimally invasive bone grafting technique developed by Dr. Ernesto Lee. It provides superior outcomes with less pain, less swelling and fewer complications than traditional bone grafting procedures. Only a small incision is required, with no flap elevation, no tenting screws and no membranes. Complex, high risk scenarios can now be treated with minimal risk of complications. The S.M.A.R.T. TM method represents a disruptive technology that will dramatically impact the future of bone grafting

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.

Esthetic Zone Reconstruction: Synergy of Hard and Soft Tissue Grafting Premium Member Content

Esthetic Zone Reconstruction: Synergy of Hard and Soft Tissue Grafting
The loss of alveolar ridge contour in the esthetic zone compromises both esthetics and function. This clinical presentation will focus on the application of both hard and soft tissue grafting in the esthetic zone implementing state of the art interactive CT diagnosis and treatment planning for optimal esthetic implant reconstruction. Emphasis will be on indications, graft and harvest site assessment, timing, and use of bioactive modifiers including BMP, PRGF and PDGF. The surgical protocol utilizing allogeneic and autogenous grafts in conjunction with connective tissue grafts, acellular dermis matrix, and related soft tissue procedures to avoid functional and esthetic pitfalls will be featured. Pre and post-grafting prosthetic workup, interactive CT graft assessment and perio prosthetic driven implant planning, stent driven implant placement, and computer milled abutment fabrication including guided surgery will be included.

The Use of PerioDerm for Root Coverage and Correction of Insufficiently Attached Gingiva

The Use of PerioDerm for Root Coverage and Correction of Insufficiently Attached Gingiva
The objective of this article is to demonstrate the benefits of an acellular dermal matrix called PerioDerm™ Acellular Dermis in correcting recession and adding connective tissue during periodontal-restorative comprehensive treatment. 1,2 It has long been established that connective tissue is an integral factor in the protection of the underlying periodontal foundation. Connective tissue tends to be tenacious in makeup and have far less vascularization than mucosa. It prevents bacterial infiltration to the underlying supportive periodontal tissues, and in restorative applications, it adds stability to gingival areas during impression taking and cementation of restorations. Though the quality of tissue is critical, it is also important that the tissue is bound down to either tooth surface or bone to serve as a supportive mechanism for protection of the periodontium.
