What are the advantages of that suture ? Great video, thanks Felipe Heran

very neat presentation

Carlos and Dimitru; Tissue Expanders have been around in dentistry since the early 90's. Oded Bahat published on them in the IJPRD prior to GBR. This seemed to fail as it expanded the mucosa ONLY and not the attached gingiva which is bound down. As for Ballooons in dentistry, they seem to be more useful in the treatment of internal, crestal approach sinus lifts as has been shown on dentalxp by Dr. Ziv Mazor and myself. Happy New Year Dr. Salama

Carlos, I thought about this too. It would be nice if someone would produce this small ballons

Excellent 5 part video, very informative Thank you Dr Pikos

Does anyone have information about the use of small expandable saline bags that can be used to augment soft tissue prior to actual surgery to ensure suffient soft tissue for tension free closure. Such as the ones used for skin grafting procedures but in a smaller scale ofcourse

Mahnaz;
If the mentalis is split via a Vestibular approach it should be "reattached" first with deep resorbable sutures prior to closure.
If you utilize a Sulcular approach, which many now advocate, the mentalis muscle reattaches on it's own and deep sutures are not necessary. This approach is preferred as well for lower post-op morbidity for the patient an less tension on the wound.
good luck
Sam

thid video series was very informative with many handy hints. I had a question about the mentalis muscle-is it necessary to reattach it ?as i was told that if the mentalis was removed from the midline suture it was always necessary to place suspensory sutures. Thanks again for all the videos -Mahnaz Syed

Restoration of Optimal Esthetics in Complex Clinical Situations Premium Member Content

Restoration of Optimal Esthetics in Complex Clinical Situations
Patients often neglect or delay dental care for an extended time because of their negative experiences with and fear of dental treatments. This neglect may result in the advance of periodontitis with severe bone loss, a substantial number of missing teeth, and problems with the remaining teeth. Preexisting malocclusion can aggravate this condition. This case report demonstrates an interdisciplinary strategic approach, in combination with the use of biologically grounded, clinically proven, and viable techniques and technologies to restore optimal esthetics and function in such complex cases. The authors emphasize the importance of carefully planning the timing and sequence of performing periodontal, orthodontic, and implant therapies. The advanced techniques and technologies successfully implemented in this case report include the growth factor and titanium mesh (Ti mesh)-assisted bone augmentation; ovate pontic-mediated, noninvasive soft tissue contouring; and photofunctionalization

Esthetic Management for Compromised Extraction Sites - Part 2 of 2 Premium Member Content

Esthetic Management for Compromised Extraction Sites - Part 2 of 2
Missing soft tissue is the main reason for compromised results in the aesthetic zone. But since the soft tissue has to be supported by a sufficient amount of bone, our focus has also to be on bone. Due to the fact that no bone-preservation technique (at the time of tooth extraction) available today, gives us the perfect result we need, augmentation procedures are still needed. Appropriate bone and soft tissue engineering in all three dimensions enhances the aesthetic performance of long-lasting restorations that blend in well and emerge from the periimplant sulcus in harmony with the neighboring teeth.

Immediate Dentoalveolar Restoration Premium Member Content

Immediate Dentoalveolar Restoration
The IDR (Immediate Dentoalveolar Restoration) technique has been used for over 6 years. With it, we can reconstruct socket tissue losses in the same surgical session of dental extraction, implant placement and provisional crown installation, minimizing the treatment time and morbidity of the procedures. In this presentation we discuss the hard and soft tissues stability when the IDR technique is applied in different types of periodontal biotypes and in sites with different defect levels. The clinical, radiographic and tomographic follow-up of some cases is shown, allowing us to evaluate the maintenance of gingival architecture and peri-implant bone stability around the implants.

Biologic Strategies to Enhance Clinical and Aesthetic Success in Oral Implantology
This webinar will discuss clinical strategies for treatment of the complex implant site involving bone grafting and implant placement. Our understanding of cellular pathways, and our ability to control the wound response, expands our capacity to effect better aesthetic outcomes and compress treatment time. The reduction of the inflammatory phase of tissue regeneration speeds up osseointegration, prevents crestal bone loss, maintains papillary form, increases the density of peri-implant bone and increases tissue biotype. This enhanced tissue response allows us to predictably treat even the most complex surgical cases, compress time to final reconstruction, and to maintain these favorable tissue outcomes over an extended period of time. The use of dental implants with advanced biologic features and the incorporation autologous growth factors will be demonstrated.

Site Preparation & Osseodensification in Bone Management Premium Member Content

Site Preparation & Osseodensification in Bone Management
Today's implant arena involves not only the understanding of procedures but also the science behind wound healing. Often new technologies and instrumentation evolves that have a significant impact on what we are able to do clinically. Piezosurgical devices, periotomes, osteotomes, hydraulic sinus devices, neurosurgical drills, and the "PET" (Partial Extraction Therapies) system are just a short list of those that have made surgery more efficient and less traumatic for our patients. Osseodensification is another concept that can be added to this long list. This lecture will speak about new age bone management concepts and how these technologies may be able to assist us. Potential issues and focus on use will be touched upon as well.

A Bovine-Bone Mineral Block for the Treatment of Severe Ridge Deficiencies in the Anterior Region: A Clinical Case Report
A bovine-bone mineral block was used to treat a severe horizontal and vertical anterior ridge deficiency. Such a block can be shaped to conform to the defect, and it avoids the need for harvesting autogenous bone or fixation of the block with screws.

Influence of Thin Mucosal Tissues on Crestal Bone Stability Around Implants With Platform Switching: A 1-year Pilot Study
The aim of this pilot study was to determine what effect thin mucosal tissues can have on crestal bone stability around implants with platform switching. Within the limitations of this pilot study it can be concluded that implants with platform switching did not preserve crestal bone better in comparison with implants with traditional implant-abutment connection if, at the time of implant placement, thin mucosal tissues were present.
