Nicely done.

Thanks Ron - For soft tissue procedures like frenectomies, I use local anesthesia a little more than 50% of the time with my adult patients, and less than 10% of the time with the kids and babies. For more involved procedures like gingivoplasty, gingivectomy, crown lengthening, vestibuloplasty, etc. I am using local anesthesia on almost everyone. The settings remained the same from the beginning to the end of the procedure, and the whole procedure is recorded in the video (nothing was done before the video started). On this procedure, the Solea laser was "pedal to the metal" with a pulse duration of 30ms and irrigation at 70%. Best ~ Jason Tubo

Nicely done, Jason. What percent of the time do you need to do local anesthesia and for what soft tissue procedures? And finally, please let us know what settings you were on at the start or did you use a different setting before the video started?

This is an amazing tool for soft tissue work. When I bought my Solea, I had low expectations for soft tissue since I was using a 10,600nm CO2 laser. BUT.... I quickly realized that Solea is an even better soft tissue laser due to speed and precision. Less need for anesthesia as seen here. Combine that with a fast and precise laser for all my direct restorative with 97% anesthesia free and I am a happy dentist. If you slow down your hand movement a bit you will get a faster and smoother result. Great job! Michael Kelly

Great example of what Solea is capable of doing. Precise, quick, bloodless and anesthesia free.

NEW PRGF-Endoret Protocol (Platelet Rich in Growth Factors)
PRGF®-Endoret Technology is based on the activation of the patient's own platelets for the stimulation and acceleration of tissue healing and regeneration. It is a technology that allows the use of the organism's own resources with extraordinary results in many pathologies, effectively regenerating tissues without side effects and notably reducing the recovery period of fractures, muscular and tendinous injuries, and surgical interventions. Dr. Maurice Salama’s assistant, Charlene Bennett, will elaborate in detail describing the step-by step PRGF preparation and how it can be utilized clinically.

The Interdisciplinary Software Platform. The Key For Modern Digital Dentistry
The starting point of a facially driven interdisciplinary dental treatment plan is "The Smile Frame". A few crucial photos and steps will come together to create the ultimate template you need to communicate to your dental team, colleagues, and the patient to ultimately increase case acceptance and create the most aesthetic and functional method of rehabilitation to your patient. We will discuss how this paradigm shift of regular analog dentistry has shifted to this modern digital world and the benefits it provides. The protocol proposed will improve the diagnosis, communication and predictability of esthetic rehabilitation, from simple implant or restorative cases to complex cases, combining perio, ortho, and othognathic surgery. Emphasis will be given to the utilization of digital tools to enhance and facilitate the Dentist/Technician interaction and communication with the patient.

Standard protocols for suturing have been developed for the positioning and securing of surgical flaps to promote optimal healing. Parts 1 and 2 of this article discussed the indications for a variely of suturing techniques, including the periosteal suture technique, the simple look modification of interrupted suture technique, and several continuous suture techniques. Vertical mattress sutures, coronally repositioned mattress sutures, horizontal mattress sutures, and vertical sling mattress sutures…

Elements and Utilization of Suturing Needles

Elements and Utilization of Suturing Needles
The primary components of every suturing needle include the attachment end, body, and point. Traditional complications caused by threading have been eliminated by the advent of needles that are permanently attached to the suturing material. The suturing procedure is further simplified by the attached and press-fitted end of the needle (swaged) that enables the clinician to draw it through the tissue with less trauma.

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.
