Fantastic presentation- Thanks for sharing

Howard Gluckman - (10/5/2015 4:18 PM)

Great case Mo. Learned a lot thanks

Maurice Salama - (8/7/2015 12:51 PM)

Yohan; Thank you again. Yes, even with full tunnel technique there is retraction of the papilla area and risk of unintended tear or perforation so I prefer the VISTA with existing restorations or implants here BUT if the Tunnel is done well then really is only a preference. They both work. As for advice regarding early exposure of ACDM, it really depends upon suture method in my opinion. Once exposed NO intervention will be helpful, only observation and hygiene. regards Dr. Salama

yohan levy - (8/7/2015 1:44 AM)

Thank you for the rapidity of your answer your devotion to this site and To our profession in general is inspiring Following your answer i still do not understand why would you expect Any papilla retraction using a full tunelling technique whith no papilla elevation Introduicing the périoderm through the tunell Also concerning the technic shown on others of your excelent lecturs The One requiring the elevation of the most distal papilla i found in my experience specially When utilizing alloderm which Is usually thiker than the thick perioderm that this papilla tends to open Up very early in the healing process exposing the still wite alloderm Would you have Any advice to prevent this to happen and also what would you Recomand once this papilla opens up would you recomand to reintervein immidiatly To make sure that the alloderm do not stay exposed or no Thank you again

Maurice Salama - (8/6/2015 5:35 PM)

Yohan; Thank you for your kind words. I prefer VISTA here to avoid any potential issues with papilla retraction as these restorations will not be replaced. I would feel the same with implant restorations. As for tetracycline, it is simply capsules mixed with sterile solution and left for 3 minutes. warm regards Dr. Salama

yohan levy - (8/6/2015 5:25 PM)

Thank you dr salama for this great presentation. I actually would have two question for you The first One Is why have you previlege this technique over The regular tunneling aproach in this particular case? And the second more technical Is how To obtain this tétracycline paste Is it only the caplets mixed whith saline or do you purchase it as a paste Thank you

Maurice Salama - (11/29/2014 8:47 PM)

Mirna; No, I do engage the Perioderm ACDM with the sutures and use a sling mattress suture. I prefer OMNIA sutures PTFE or PGA or Monofilament. Thanks Dr. Salama

Mirna Munir74 - (11/29/2014 9:57 AM)

Hi dr Maurice, it was nice and simple procedure . One think i would like to ask, the stitching are not engage The perioderm at all?, thanks

Maurice Salama - (2/13/2014 8:25 PM)

Carl; Thank you. As Periosteum is only several microns in thickness "sharp" dissection allows for a supra-periosteal dissection. Instrumentation and technique is critical. Thanks Dr. Salama

Managing Esthetic Implant Complications Premium Member Content

Managing Esthetic Implant Complications
Dental implant success today is judged not only by osseointegration but also by bone, tissue stability and of course long term esthetic results. Cosmetic predictability can often be difficult to attain, and esthetic implant failures can be multifactorial and patient management issues. Once esthetic implant failures occur, many cannot be fully corrected. Some complications must be addressed by an interdisciplinary dental team. In this summary of case reports, surgical considerations are provided, including cases of facial asymmetry/recession due to facial implant placement or bone loss resulting from technique/treatment failures, as well as papillary deficiencies. Restorative considerations for correcting failures are also discussed.

Non-Surgical Periodontal Therapy: Decision Making in the 21st Century Premium Member Content

Non-Surgical Periodontal Therapy: Decision Making in the 21st Century
Non-surgical periodontal therapy is a vital part of everyday dental practice. Since the majority of periodontal therapy is performed by general dentists and dental hygienists, it is critical that clinicians have all of the requisite skills and information needed to perform these services at the highest level possible. The purpose of this presentation is to provide the latest evidence- and practice- based information on periodontal debridement and adjunctive therapies that can improve patient outcomes. Though surgical procedures may still need to be performed in some sites, the majority of inflammatory periodontal disease can be eliminated or reduced significantly using the techniques and protocols discussed in this educational segment on non-surgical periodontal therapy.

Surgical Crown Lengthening in a Population With Human Immunodeficiency Virus: A Retrospective Analysis
This report investigates the outcome of CLS procedures performed at an urban dental school in a population of individuals with HIV. Specifically, this retrospective clinical analysis evaluates the healing response after crown lengthening surgery (CLS). Of the 21 patients with HIV examined after CLS, none had postoperative complications, such as delayed healing, infection, or prolonged bleeding. Variations in viral load, CD4 cell count, smoking, platelets, and neutrophils did not impact surgical healing. In addition, variations in medication regimens (highly active anti-retroviral therapy; on pro-tease inhibitors; no medications had an impact. The results of this retrospective analysis show the absence of postoperative complications after CLS in this population with HIV. Additional investigation into this area will help health care practitioners increase the range of surgical services provided to this group of patients.

The Pontic-Shield: Partial Extraction Therapy for Implant Dentistry

The Pontic-Shield: Partial Extraction Therapy for Implant Dentistry
Augmentive ridge preservation techniques aim to manage the postextraction ridge. The partial extraction of teeth may better preserve the ridge form by maintaining the bundle bone-periodontal tissues and preserve the ridge beneath dentures or fixed prostheses. The socket-shield technique entails preparing a tooth root section simultaneous to immediate implant placement and has demonstrated histologic and clinical results contributory to esthetic implant treatment. A retrospective 10-patient case series treating 14 partial extraction sites demonstrates how a modification of the socket-shield technique can successfully develop pontic sites and preserve the ridge.
