It is very excited minimally invasive periodontal surgery. It is just what Dr Salama mentions "it is simple" but I think it need a lot of practice of doing this.

Xp friends; I will record the Model based Tunnel procedure in HD format. We have scheduled it for the coming month and will voiceover after editing. Keep an eye out for it. The older video no longer can be utilized due to the older format.
Dr. Salama

Hi Maurice, what about the video about tunneling technic on MODEL?
Thank you
Yehouda Rubin

Yehuda RUBIN - (1/30/2012 3:37 PM)

Please Maurice, coul'd you post the tunneling technic seen on MODEL that we saw in your course given in Tel-Aviv
Thank you very much
Yehuda RUBIN (ISRAEL)

Maurice Salama - (12/14/2011 5:34 PM)

Yehuda and all my friends; Thank you for reminding me. It will be voiced over in the coming weeks and then posted after the New Year. I am hopeful to do more model based videos in the future to add as well. The yellow material used on the roots is tetracycline paste used to condition the cementum for fibroblast adhesion. The tunnel instruments are sold thru Devemed and can be purchased directly on this site www.dentalxp.com. As for sutures, 6.0 Polypropylene or 5.0 Nylon work very well. My next Soft Tissue Hands-on course is here in Atlanta, March 9-10th. Thank you all for your posts and interest. many thanks Dr. Salama

Yehuda RUBIN - (12/14/2011 5:25 PM)

Dr Maurice Salama, as you suggested, coul'd you please put on dental-xp, the video of tunneling technique done on the model (not on a patient)that you shown us in your course in Tel-aviv . So it will be much easier to remember how to use each instrument to ahieve the procedure
Thank you
Yehuda Rubin (Israel)

khalid al-majaida - (10/6/2011 2:47 AM)

nice minor surgery,congratulations,but whats that yellow material used on the neck of bicuspid?used for what?whats the proper angulation for the first palatal incision?thank you doc.

pei peng - (9/25/2011 7:16 PM)

DR.Salama, where I can get the tunnel instruments that you are using in thisvideo? thanks

loo chong - (6/17/2010 3:58 PM)

the video did not show suture placement between 1st and 2nd bicuspid.Where did the suture thread seen at the base of the papilla between the bicuspids came from ?

Coronally Advanced Envelope Flap - A Step-by-Step Video
In this step-by-step surgical video, Dr. Moura illustrates every aspect of the technique described by Zucchelli and De Sanctis known as the coronally advanced envelope flap. This procedure is utilized for treatment of multiple recession type defects in esthetically demanding patients. After a short technical overview, we will see a clinical case and discuss every detail of the treatment.

The Dual Zone Approach to Tooth Replacement in the Esthetic Zone Premium Member Content

The Dual Zone Approach to Tooth Replacement in the Esthetic Zone
Improvements in implant designs have helped advance successful immediate anterior implant placement into fresh extraction sockets. Clinical techniques described in this presentation will enable practitioners to achieve predictable esthetic success using a method that limits the amount of buccal contour change of the extraction site ridge and potentially enhances the thickness of the peri-implant soft tissues coronal to the implant-abutment interface. This approach involves atraumatic tooth removal without flap elevation, and placing a bone graft into the residual gap around an immediate fresh-socket anterior implant with a screw-retained provisional restoration acting as a prosthetic socket seal device. Long term follow up and evidence from scientific literature to support this concept will be described.

Prosthetic Soft Tissue Development From Single to Full Arch Reconstruction Premium Member Content

Prosthetic Soft Tissue Development From Single to Full Arch Reconstruction
In addition to surgical intervention is the creation of the specific emergence profile that is essential in the aesthetic zone. The emergence profile composed of 2 parts, the abutment and the subgingival part of the crown. The shape of abutment can be individually shaped so that it gives natural appearance and varies individually (depending on the depth, angulation and diameter of the implant). Sometimes it even dictates the implant position. From a surgical perspective, soft tissue height, position and thickness need to be diagnosed and corrected when needed. From the prosthetic point of view, the emergence profile has to be created to mimic the natural appearance and maintained over time in respect to the biological changes. The course teaches step by step how to be successful with implant prosthetics from single tooth, partially edentulous to full arch reconstruction.

The Endentulous Ridge in Fixed Prosthodontics
In those clinical situations in which missing teeth are replaced with fixed prosthodontics, the clinician is faced with the task of fabricating the pontics to fulfill the requirements of esthetics, form and function, and oral physiotherapy. The relationship of the "dummy tooth", or pontic to the underlying ridge is inordinately complex, since the esthetic requirements invariably conflict with those of function and hygiene. Although pontic designs have been discussed in some depth in the literature,…

Achieving Predictable Connective Tissue Root Coverage

Achieving Predictable Connective Tissue Root Coverage
Gingival recession creates esthetic issues. These issues may be corrected from a restomtive perspective by the placement of composite resin or ceramic over the exposed root. But this approach often results in a gingival-incisal length that does not blend esthetically with tire adjacent teeth. Often accompanying the gingival recession is a decrease in the band of attached gingiva. The wider the band of attached gingiva, the more stabIe the long-term result Therefore, surgical correction of the recession…

Soft Tissue Enhancement After Implant Placement

Soft Tissue Enhancement After Implant Placement
Soft tissue management is one of the key factors for successful implant restoration. Esthetics can be strongly influenced by the conditions of the peri-implant tissue. Substantial knowledge of tissue anatomy and biology is a fundamental prerequisite for surgical success. The present chapter introduces different techniques to improve the appearance of the soft tissue after implant placement. Cases of repositioned flaps, FGGs, and CTGs are presented along with biological considerations. It was our intention to present various indications and options to the clinician to achieve an increased amount of peri-implant KG or connective tissue thickness.
