Socket Seal Procedure

Description:
Dr. Maurice Salama performs a socket seal procedure in the area around tooth #8. The patient presents inflamed gingiva on the labial aspect due to a vertical fracture. He utilizes GEM 21S from Osteohealth as his socket grafting material, and autogenous connective tissue for the sealing of the graft.

Questions & Comments
Keith Wing - (9/8/2019 4:25 PM)

I was under the impression that Bio Oss was to be used in a particulate graft as a "supplement" to hold the shape of the graft site (supplement= sprinkle in perhaps 40% Bio-Oss with the cortico- cancellous allograft). My understanding was that Bio-Oss was so slow to convert to native bone (if it even turns over??) that in 4 or 5 months when you reenter the site you would have Bio-Oss Particles. Ok, I realize I am a bit green but I would appreciate clarification even if clarification is just leading me to another video. Furthermore, I have not seen the rationale for choosing between cortico, cancellous, cortico/cancellous... demineralized vs mineralized... 50/50 or 70/30 mix... I generally understand the notion that mineralized and cortical bone converts at a slower rate but I do not understand what is necessary when and where... thanks I have plenty of time to watch videos!

Thank Maurice, I was just curious:)

Maurice Salama - (9/12/2018 12:00 PM)

Shahdad; 2007 PET did not exist yet....but yes!! Today, it would definitely be a PET case. Look how much was done back then to mask the ridge collapse. regards Dr. Salama

Shahdad Ayoughi - (9/12/2018 11:09 AM)

Great presentation as always. Wasn’t good candidate for PET?

Bikramjit; I prefer Tuberosity tissue for Ridge Augmentation and the area between distal of lateral incisor to distal of 1st molar on Palate for root coverage. Dr. S

Bikramjit Sandhu - (10/8/2013 7:04 AM)

Dr Maurice Thanks for the presentation could please tell which is the best site for harvesting a soft tissue graft in palate. Dr Bik Sandhu

Maurice Salama - (1/29/2013 3:34 PM)

Carlos; That makes sense. In the posterior region a collagen plug or PRGF plug would be fine!!
Dr. Salama

Carlos Vélez - (1/29/2013 1:45 PM)

Dr. Salama, what do you think of of using collagen plugs over a preserved site in the posterior region? With ovate pontic on top.... Thanks PS Sometimes we want to minimize the procedures in some patients and avoid touching the palate, thats my concern..

thank u very much ,i,ll start doing that,but for the surgical stent covering the donor site should be placed for how much of time.

Titanium Mesh and rhBMP-2 in Ridge Augmentation: Options and Limitations Premium Member Content

Titanium Mesh and rhBMP-2 in Ridge Augmentation: Options and Limitations
Titanium mesh has been used in reconstructive surgery and ridge augmentation for several years. The traditional technique involves using cancellous autogenous bone under the mesh scaffold. More recently growth factors and bone substitutes have been utilized as autograft replacements. There are several advantages to using titanium mesh for space maintenance including strength, ease of use, low cost and biocompatibility. However, the difficulty in removing the mesh has led to a search for other space maintenance scaffolds including tenting screws, dense preshaped collagen and porous high-density polyethylene. This webinar will discuss the use of rhBMP-2 for managing horizontal and vertical bone deficiencies with various scaffolds.

Gaining Horizontal and Vertical Bone with Mineralized Bone Particulate, rh-BMP2 and Resorbable Ultrasonic-Applied Rigid Barriers Premium Member Content

Gaining Horizontal and Vertical Bone with Mineralized Bone Particulate, rh-BMP2 and Resorbable Ultrasonic-Applied Rigid Barriers
The use of titanium mesh has been well described, but so has the complications of removal and exposure. Bioresorbable barriers are now available which can be molded into any desired three-dimensional form, creating a rigid and resorbable construct that is secured to to the bone using ultrasonic energy. This unique solution has been successfully used to create the proper environment for both large lateral and vertical ridge augmentations for situations previously only treated with block grafting or distraction. Dr. Cummings will share his experience as well as the key soft tissue techniques that are critical for the success of any large augmentation.

Advances in Hard and Soft Tissue Management Using 3D Printing Technology Premium Member Content

Advances in Hard and Soft Tissue Management Using 3D Printing Technology
It is becoming rare today to come across simple cases in Periodontics; our specialty has come to face complex cases where hard and soft tissue deficiencies are quite common. These suggested protocols and schematic approaches were developed to help the surgical practitioner visualize and divide the problem into a predictable step-by-step workflow. The utilization of 3-D printed CBCT studies of the treatment planned surgical sites was shown to be integral in patient care and clinical outcomes. Every step is dictated by biology; all incision designs, flap management techniques, and biomaterials used have been selected to maximize the blood supply in the area and minimize trauma to the vascular network that nourishes our surgical site.

Alloplastic Bone Substitutes Around Dental Implants

Alloplastic Bone Substitutes Around Dental Implants
The repair of osseous defects has been a goal in dentistry for many decades. Subsequently, within the last several years, there has been an emergence of a new class of materials in dentistry referred to as synthetic bone. Finding the ideal bone substitute material has been the goal of researchers for many years. In attempting to achieve this ideal material, dental practitioners have tried with varying degrees of success: autogenous and demineralized freeze-dried bone, allografts of plastic, carbon…

Peridontal Osseous Surgery and Root Resective Therapy

Peridontal Osseous Surgery and Root Resective Therapy
Historically, osseous surgery was performed to eliminate infected bone. Early in the 20th century clinicians realized that periodontally affected bone was not actually infected. Instead of an invasive bacterial infection, chronic inflammation was responsible for bone destruction. This finding changed the rationale for periodontal therapy and led to modern concepts of osseous surgery. Currently accepted approaches are based on guidelines, parameters, and definitions published by many highly respected…
