The Free Gingival Graft...Back to Basics: Why Do It?

Description:
The lower incisor area is the site of the most common mucogingival deficiencies: Gingival recession, high frenum attachments, and thin tissue. Because of the local anatomy, this area is a challenge to treat surgically. Common treatment options often include the subepithelial connective tissue graft, acellular dermal graft, free gingival graft, as well as several other methods/materials. In this video, a free gingival graft is demonstrated to address a recession defect as well as to augment the soft tissue while eliminating the high frenum pull in order to aid in the orthodontic treatment plan of a young patient. While commonly shunned for the morbidity associated with palatal grafts, the free gingival graft is making a comeback with the popularity of implant dentistry due to it's relative simplicity and predictability for augmenting thin tissue. This "back to basics" video takes the free gingival graft back to its roots: The lower incisor area.

Rafi; The older videos are often FREE, look around but we encourage you to reconsider upgrading your membership to PREMIUM to access ALL the site gas to offer. Dr. Salama

How to find the free basic videos?

Thank you Dr. Wong-that was great.

I second what Dr. Salama says regarding periodontal dressings. I also rarely use a dressing. For my typical free gingival graft such as this, I typically do not suture the bottom portion of the graft to the periosteum IF the graft is immobile. If I am uneasy about the graft's stability I will utilize a periosteal anchoring sling suture that more firmly adapts the graft to the recipient bed.

Helena; Not always, only to help extend the vestibule. Dr. Salama

Thank you for your great presentations! Do you use periodontal dressing with your FGG'S?

Maurice Salama - (4/16/2014 4:26 PM)

Helena; Barricade is Light Cured Material and very popular or you can you select Perio Pak. Dr. Salama

The Submerged Root Technique “RST”: A Clinical Case and Video Series Premium Member Content

The Submerged Root Technique “RST”: A Clinical Case and Video Series
By maintaining the natural tooth root through the root submergence technique (RST) we are better able to preserve a much greater amount of surrounding tissue than the more commonly used socket preservation technique. RST maintains the natural attachment apparatus of the tooth root in the pontic site which in turn allows for complete preservation of the alveolar bone frame and creates a more esthetic result in multiple tooth replacement cases. In this Case Report and Video, the concept and surgical technique are highlighted in detail including a video of the actual submergence and graft as well as follow up and restoration.

Advanced Immediate Implant Placement Strategies Including the Socket Shield (SS) Technique and its Complications
Immediate implant placement in the aesthetic zone has become a controversial topic with regards to the long term aesthetic demands that both the profession and our patients have placed on this treatment modality. Since the controversy broke a few years ago there have been a number of outstanding developments that have revolutionized the way we do immediate implant placement. Soft tissue augmentations using the tunnel technique as well as the socket whiled technique are 2 of these techniques which form the baseline of treatment in our clinic. This lecture will go through all the updated protocols of immediate implant placement supported by the literature as well as deal specifically with the finer details of the socket whiled technique including step by step photos and video of the technique. More importantly it will cover numerous complications that we have had to deal with over the last few years that we have been doing this technique.

"The Socket Shield Technique"; Myths & Realities Premium Member Content

"The Socket Shield Technique"; Myths & Realities
Socket Shield Technique is a concept in implant dentistry that utilizes the partial extraction therapy principles, with the goal of preserving the hard and soft tissues around the dental implants. It has been reported to be a very predictable therapy so far. The proper case selection is crucial for the success of the technique. In fact, it is very technique sensitive and requires an advanced level in implant dentistry. Although the technique has a high overall success rate, but long term studies and high evidence level researches are needed to support the proof of principle available. This presentation will discuss and review the "myths & realities" of the new Socket Shield Technique or "PET" (Partial Extraction Therapy) concept.

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.
