Mastering Surgical Principles: Key to Constant Success

Description:
Clinical success depends on material and technique selection, but no material or technique will succeed if surgical principles are not respected. Attention to detail is imperative and mastering surgical principles is key to constant success. This course aims to review principles of flap design and elevation, as well as degranulation, debridement, suturing and wound stabilization of the most commonly performed periodontal, implant and advanced bone grafting procedures. Pharmacologic protocols and anesthesia will also be discussed.

Great question Vishal... The mucogingival junction can be restablished with an apically positioned flap. However, flap displacement (either coronally or apically) causes marginal flap necrosis and the consequence is loss of keratinized tissue. Hybrid methods of flap displacement (full-split-full, split-full, full-split) may overcome this problem to a certain extent but the success is totally dependent on periodontal and gingival biotype, and not gingival biotype alone. We should also be aware that flap advancement may shorten the vestible and cause limited access for oral hygiene.

VISHAL SINGH - (6/6/2015 12:27 AM)

comprehensive and informative presentation Dr Neiva....i have one question ....what happens to mucogingival junction in displaced and coronally advanced flap? should it not come back to its genetically determined position as suggested and proved in classical study by Aianmo et al? why are we losing the keratinized gingiva after manipulation of soft tissues in such surgeries?

Rodrigo Neiva - (6/5/2015 10:43 AM)

Ali, it depends. If the box is too close to the alveolar crest, a crown leghtening surgery is indicated. Radiographicaly you should see at least 3mm from this box to the alveolar crest.

Is it recommended to place light cure glass ionomer(resin modified GIC) on gingival floor of proximal box in a class 2 composite restoration? Thank you

Shawn Tokunaga - (5/24/2015 11:54 AM)

Thank you. Excellent for a novice like myself who has tried to put the parts and pieces together. Your presentation was concise and touched all necessary protocols. I am sure I will review your presentation quite often. Loved your closing thoughts.

The Complete Single Practitioner
This lecture with lots of case presentations gives you a unique way of delivering solutions to complex and challenging chief complaints of patients , from a single “complete solution provider”. In these situations we consider implant dentistry a prosthetic discipline with a surgical component. If this complete single practitioner has experience as a prosthodontist, it can improve the understanding of the importance of prosthetically driven implant placement and on the other side the minimally invasive, tissue preserving approaches like partial extraction therapy, osseodensification, connective tissue grafting, guided surgery etc.

The Surgical-Restorative Digital Work Flow In Comprehensive Therapy
Traditional methods of treating our patients are being been replaced by digital processes, impacting our daily life. The intake of various technologies such as CBCT imaging, scanning, digital restorative design and CAD/CAM production have contributed to this movement. In the same time, restorative materials have also been developed and studied that have improved strength and esthetic qualities. All these capabilities create opportunities for better restorative outcome.

The Role of Digital Technologies & Materials for Full-Arch Implant Reconstruction Premium Member Content

The Role of Digital Technologies & Materials for Full-Arch Implant Reconstruction
In prosthetic rehabilitations, we used for many years codified and widely described protocols in literature, with results that met our expectations and well above those of our patients. It is true that the advent of new technologies has enabled the dental team to use new material and new equipment that facilitated the production of an adaptation and an accuracy of the prosthetic rehabilitation that has, up to now, been difficult to obtain. In this presentation, we will analyze different cases, highlighting the operational differences that they have developed over time, with the increasing knowledge of the new materials and the daily developing of the new software's. It is also described how traditional materials and techniques have been replaced with other innovative new technologies, and how the results obtained with these are systematic and significantly better in updated generations prior.

Suturing Principles - Material Selection

Suturing Principles - Material Selection
The primary objective of dental suturing is to position and secure surgical flaps to promote optimal healing The evolution of su turing materials has enabled decreased potential of postoperative infection and increased successful closure with minimal difficulty. Accurate flap opposition contributes to patient comfort and hemostas is, reduces the wound to be repaired, and prevents unnecessary bone destruction.

Chu's Aesthetic Guages: Crown Lengthening

Chu's Aesthetic Guages: Crown Lengthening
The Crown Lengthening Gauge has the Biologic Periogauge (BLPG) tip on one end and the Papilla tip on the opposite end. The BLPG tip is used to achieve the propermid-facial clinical crown and biologic crown (osseous crest to incisal edge position) length during surgical crown lengthening procedures. The Papilla tip follows the use of the BLPG tip to establish the correct aesthetic position of the interdental papilla fromthe incisal edge before the flap is closed and sutured.

Applied Techniques for Predictable Suture Placement Part 3
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…
