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.

Always enjoy your presentations Danny.

Added to the favorites. This is just great work in perio and prostho terms. Thanks Dr. Melker

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

Tom Cassidy - (8/18/2013 6:19 PM)

surely interbrushes make this destuctive technique redundant

Danny,
Magnificant job as usual.Best regards.

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

This presentation will discuss and demonstrate the utilization of CBCT imaging from the perspective and scope of a periodontist and an oral and maxillofacial surgeon. Treatment planning, critical thinking skills and surgical execution of cases demonstrating complex dentoalveolar bone reconstruction and craniofacial deformities will be presented demonstrating how this paradigm shift has expanded capabilities and predictability to treat demanding cases.

Managing the Extraction Site - Optimal Preservation and Enhancement Techniques Premium Member Content

Managing the Extraction Site - Optimal Preservation and Enhancement Techniques
There is rarely a day that clinicians do not have to deal with an extraction site. If implant therapy is a consideration, then bone and soft tissue quantity and quality must be factored into treatment options. The ideal opportunity for bone preservation exists at the time of tooth extraction. All too often this opportunity is lost. Extraction techniques will be demonstrated that not only preserve but augment the amount of alveolar bone. The importance of piezosurgery, atraumatic surgical technique, the use of bone grafts, resorbable membranes and growth factors will be elucidated along with soft tissue enhancement.

The Socket-Shield Technique to Support the Buccofacial Tissues at Immediate Implant Placement

The Socket-Shield Technique to Support the Buccofacial Tissues at Immediate Implant Placement
Tooth loss and subsequent ridge collapse continue to burden restorative implant treatment. Careful management of the post-extraction tissues is needed to preserve the alveolar ridge. In-lieu of surgical augmentation to correct a ridge defect, the socket-shield technique offers a promising solution. As the root submergence technique retains the periodontal attachment and maintains the alveolar ridge for pontic site development, this case report demonstrates the hypothesis that retention of a prepared tooth root section as a socket-shield prevents the recession of tissues buccofacial to an immediately placed implant. The socket-shield technique is a highly promising addition to clinical implant dentistry and this case report is among the first to demonstrate the procedure in clinical practice with a 1-year follow up.
