Treatment of the Mesial Concavity of Maxillary 1st Bicuspids in Comprehensive Periodontal and Restorative Cases

Description:
This video will discuss one of the most difficult areas to treat definitively, the mesial concavity of maxillary 1st bicuspids. Techniques will be evaluated whereby the surgeon can treat the cause of periodontal problems rather than the effects. A step by step presentation of removal of the concavity and the proper restoration of the post treated root surface will be shown.

Tom; Always appreciative of comments that we all benefit from but can not quite figure out what exactly you are trying to say? "surely interbrushes make this destructive technique redundant"??? Dr. Salama

5-0 Chromic gut. Obviously resorbs though if the tissue looks good at a week we remove them.

CHUNG WU YEH - (12/25/2012 9:00 AM)

Which kind of suture and needle do you use?

Daniel Melker - (12/24/2012 8:34 AM)

Ashwath a lot goes into an incision. Tori present, thin tissue etc. I may do a full thickness flap to the MGJ and then split the tissue apical. Or a split thickness flap from the beginning if the tissue and bone are adequate! My flaps are not large, just enough to get exposure but always adequate where we do not impinge on the blood supply of the flap!

Ashwath Gowda - (12/23/2012 8:23 PM)

Dr. Melker "it is very simple to suture to periosteum anywhere if you have made the proper incision" Can you please explain/describe, what would be a PROPER INCISION that makes SUTURING TO PERIOSTEUM SIMPLE? amgdds

The Socket Shield Technique - Have the Rules of the Game Changed in Aesthetic Zone Implant Therapy? Premium Member Content

The Socket Shield Technique - Have the Rules of the Game Changed in Aesthetic Zone Implant Therapy?
Implant therapy is in the age of being increasingly aesthetically driven, not merely restorative. With the increasing popularity of immediate implants, particularly with anterior tooth extraction, the relevance of socket changes following extraction has come to the fore. Contrary to what was originally believed, the installation of an immediate implant does not arrest bone loss, and immediate implants in the aesthetic zone are prone to recession of bone and soft tissue as a result of bundle bone resorption which is obligatory with tooth extraction.
