Applied Techniques for Predictable Suture Placement Part 1 Applied Techniques for Predictable Suture Placement Part 1

Author(s):

Lee H. Silverstein, DDS, MS, FACD, FICD

Date Added:

Summary:

Surgical suture positioning is crucial to ensure adequate healing and can be accomplished using a variety of suturing methods. Sutures should generally be placed distal to the last tooth and within each interproximal space and should always be inserted through the more mobile flap first The flaps should not be blanched during the tying procedure, and closure should not be positioned closer than 2 mm to 3 mm from the edge of the flap, in order to prevent tearing during the inevitable swelling that occurs 24 to 48 hours postoperatively.

Preserving Needle Edges During Dental Suturing
The evolution of suture materials has presented today's clinician with numerous alternatives when performing dental suturing. Contemporary sutures not only eliminate some of the difficulties that the surgeon may have encountered previously during closure, but also decrease the potential of postoperative infection and help provide optimal healing. Despite the sophistication of the suture materials (ie, Perma Sharp, Hu-Friedy, Chicago, IL) and surgical techniques now available, closing a wound still involves…

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.

A New & Improved Approach to Zygomatic Implants Premium Member Content

A New & Improved Approach to Zygomatic Implants
Over the past decade numerous approaches to the rehabilitation of severe maxillary atrophy have been suggested. Most approaches involve the utilization of the Zygoma for anchorage of specially developed extra long Implants. These implants often must either enter through the sinus or pass along the outside of the sinus wall depending upon the transverse discrepancies and horizontal ridge resorption issues as well as future occlusal scheme with the mandibular arch. This new approach described in this presentation addresses this potential compromise through extra-maxillary bone grafting performed at the time of Zygoma placement utilizing fresh frozen iliac bone and bone marrow aspirate. Multiple cases will be highlighted and short term follow up described.

Managing Large Odontogenic Cysts; Decompression or Marsupialization Technique Part 2 of 2
Decompression and marsupialization are techniques used to reduce size of large odontogenic jaw cysts, hence making its complete removal and bone regeneration simpler, safer, and more predictable. In this video, Dr. H. Ryan Kazemi demonstrates a simple technique for decompression or marsupialization and provides a brief review of its application in management of odontogenic cysts

Mastering Surgical Principles: Key to Constant Success Premium Member Content

Mastering Surgical Principles: Key to Constant Success
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.

Horizontal Augmentation Through the Ridge-Split Procedure: A Predictable Surgical Modality in Implant Reconstruction Premium Member Content

Horizontal Augmentation Through the Ridge-Split Procedure: A Predictable Surgical Modality in Implant Reconstruction
The need for an adequate alveolar ridge width has been a long-standing principle in pre-prosthetic surgery. Since the introduction of root-form endosseous dental implants, the necessity of proper alveolar ridge width has become essential. In this presentation, the author concentrated on the ridge-split procedure (RSP) as a form of a ridge modification (widening or augmentation), the technique that offers many possibilities and has many advantages in oral pre-prosthetic implant reconstruction. There are many modifications of the RSP. This presentation is a description of classical ridge-split procedure in maxilla and mandible that has been successfully employed for many years in author’s surgical practice.

Controlled Ridge Splitting (CRS) Premium Member Content

Controlled Ridge Splitting (CRS)
To demonstrate a new technique of controlled ridge splitting (CRS) in severely atrophied maxillary cases as an alternative to autogenous block graft. Twenty cases were completed using a controlled ridge splitting (CRS) technique with a total of 65 implants were placed in severely atrophied Maxillae and followed after the implants were loaded. Results: The CRS technique was used in very complex cases, where the alternative method will be autogenous block graft. A total of 65 tapered implants were placed. The implants diameter ranged between 3.25-5mm with a length ranged between 10-13mm. The implants were restored and were followed for 1-3 years. All implants achieved osseointegration and continue to have successful prostheses. Conclusion: The CRS is a predictable treatment option and could be a good alternative to autogenous block grafts is severely atrophic maxillae.
