Estimated Dr, Great job, I congratulate you. Could show photos of the event at 1 year? many Thanks

Paul; The microscope takes time to learn and become comfortable. I use it typically for incisions and suturing in large soft tissue cases. Thanks for the kind words. Dr. Salama

Dr Salama another excellence in mucogingival surgery. do you always use the operating microscope or loops. how is the operating microscope maneuverability while moving from one site of the mouth to the other beside instrumentation changing.i find this is quite a challenge extraordinary ability. thank you

Excelente traduccion!

Ma. Reina; Thank you. First, you must stay in the connective tissue and do not go down to the bone when removing the graft. Second, we cauterize the area with a Laser or Radiosurgical device. Third, we apply collatape onto the wound and secure the edges with cyanoacrylate (medical glue) and Fourth, we secure a Vacuum formed Essix Matrix to provide pressure and as a comfort guard for the following week.
Hope that helps you plan your case.
Good luck
Dr. Salama

Soft Tissue Solutions to Bone Deficiencies; Minimally invasive Concepts Part 1 Premium Member Content

Soft Tissue Solutions to Bone Deficiencies; Minimally invasive Concepts Part 1
Soft Tissue minimally invasive procedures can often be utilized to reconstruct large defects in the anterior region rather than rebuild the site with Bone which would entail multiple procedures over several months and increase the morbidity for the patients as well as risk for the clinician. This presentation highlights numerous soft tissue procedures that can augment large deficiencies in the esthetic zone as a preference over bone augmentation. Roll, pedicle grafts, and tuberosity tissues can be predictably utilized to maximize our results and limit time and risk for our patients. Tooth replacement, implant failure restitution and immediate implant placement SVG grafting will be reviewed in detail.

A Novel Technique for Epithelium Removal from FGG Premium Member Content

A Novel Technique for Epithelium Removal from FGG
Removing epithelium from a free gingival graft the Zucchelli Mucogingival Esthetic Surgery does it has always been a challenge for me. I can never quite remove the epithelium as seamlessly as Professor Zuccheli. This is a technique I have experimented with recently which greatly simplifies the technique by holding the tissue firmly between two sterile tongue depressors. Give it a try and let me know how it works for you!

The Evolving Role of Soft Tissue Enhancement in Esthetic Reconstructive Dentistry Premium Member Content

The Evolving Role of Soft Tissue Enhancement in Esthetic Reconstructive Dentistry
Soft tissue grafting techniques, new regenerative materials and bioactivators will be highlighted. The expanding role of allograft materials (Perioderm), platelet rich in growth factors (PRGF, PRF), and when to utilize them will be suggested. The ability of these combined protocols to alter the soft tissue profile around natural teeth, implants, and dentulous ridges, will be reviewed as to its critical role in "Complete Esthetics".

A Review of Clinical Applications for Soft Tissue Allografts & Autografts: Solutions for Teeth, Implants, and Dentures Premium Member Content

A Review of Clinical Applications for Soft Tissue Allografts & Autografts: Solutions for Teeth, Implants, and Dentures
The presentation focuses on the clinical applications for acellular dermal graft (ADG) materials. ADGs have been commonly presented and discussed to provide solutions for treating gingival recession. Compared to autogenous grafts, they have the advantage of minimizing pain, discomfort, and surgery time for patients by avoiding an intraoral donor site such as the palate. In addition to treating gingival recession, ADGs also have uses in bone grafting surgeries such as socket grafting and ridge augmentations (GBR) when they are utilized as a barrier membrane. Finally, ADGs can be combined with bone grafting materials to aid in the augmentation of edentulous ridges to aid denture support. While this last application is less common, it's use is worthy of discussion.

Modern Implant Dentistry: Rules of Engagement in the Esthetic Zone - Part 2 of 2
This presentation will focus on the interdisciplinary relationship of the restorative dentist, periodontist and orthodontist to reconstruct the soft tissue foundation for all of these restorative options in anterior tooth replacement. The diagnosis of deficiencies as well as the varied treatment options will be discussed in detail. This includes periodontal crown lengthening, esthetic periodontal plastic soft tissue grafting procedures as well as prescription adjunctive orthodontic tooth movement to manipulate the soft tissue foundation prior to or subsequent with the restorative options of implants, bridges, or pontic replacement.

The Aesthetic Smile: Diagnosis and Treatment

The Aesthetic Smile: Diagnosis and Treatment
Until recently, dentists' and the public's concept of dental aesthetics was necessarily limited to alterations of the teeth themselves. Dentists concerned themselves with changing the position, the shape and the color of the teeth -basically restoring missing units or enhancing those already present. For the most part the dentist was forced to accept the pre-existing relationship between the three components of the smile; the teeth, the gingival scaffold and the lips.

Soft Tissue Enhancement After Implant Placement

Soft Tissue Enhancement After Implant Placement
Soft tissue management is one of the key factors for successful implant restoration. Esthetics can be strongly influenced by the conditions of the peri-implant tissue. Substantial knowledge of tissue anatomy and biology is a fundamental prerequisite for surgical success. The present chapter introduces different techniques to improve the appearance of the soft tissue after implant placement. Cases of repositioned flaps, FGGs, and CTGs are presented along with biological considerations. It was our intention to present various indications and options to the clinician to achieve an increased amount of peri-implant KG or connective tissue thickness.

Advantages of the Root Submergence Technique for Pontic Site Development in Esthetic Implant Therapy

Advantages of the Root Submergence Technique for Pontic Site Development in Esthetic Implant Therapy
This article suggests a strategy to provide a more predictable protocol for esthetic implant treatment for multiple- tooth defects using the root submergence technique (RST). The RST maintains the natural attachment apparatus of the tooth in the pontic site, which in turn allows for complete preservation of the alveolar bone frame and assists in the creation of an esthetic result in adjacent multipletooth- replacement cases.
