Wayne Moesching- very good explanation of technique and rational for doing it.

Luis Quiros - (4/2/2018 10:43 AM)

Do the presenter answer personally to the many questions I see posted?

Jannie Tromp - (3/26/2018 3:05 PM)

Dear Prof Zucchelli, I am a GP dentist and have done many free gingival grafts over the years. Most successful but always tended to leave a scar due to the fact that I have not removed the epithelium at all. Thank you for a very informative lecture. Indeed very helpful. Please could you provide me of the following information: 1. What multi filament sutures do you use for grafting? Any specific brand name and where to find it? 2. Where can I find 24% EDTA. Cannot trace it in the UK. Thank you. I cannot find Part 2 of your lecture. Will it be available or is it available and just that I could not find it on Dental XP? Best wishes Dr Jannie Tromp (U.K.) jannie.tromp@btinternet.com

Great information, thank you. Do you recommend a stent to cover the palate during the healing phase?

NIKOLAOS GREVENITIS - (2/25/2018 3:57 AM)

Brilliant video! !!so explanatory! !!

KM - (2/8/2018 9:08 PM)

will the palate repair itself in the same way or as well if the superficial layer is removed as opposed to the middle layer? let's say we would like to work on 4 quadrants, obviously 2 at a time, but how long will you wait before reharvesting from the palate at the same site. and will you expect better secondary tissue if you had taken only the middle layer of tissue the first time or only the superficial layer? or will the newly regrown tissue be about the same in both cases? thank you, kelly mayer

Having subscribed to the Zuchhelli channel, this is one of many excellent presentations on soft-tissue management. Incredibly detailed-oriented learning experience.

The Great Debate on Soft Tissue Regeneration
Recession and soft tissue deficiencies are a significant challenge in restorative and implant dentistry. A variety of different approaches and techniques using minimally invasive flaps and micro-surgical instrumentation have been proposed in this session with some of the leading clinicians in the field. A conceptual debate format discussing the virtues of CTG, FGG, pedicle grafts, as well as vestibular approaches, growth factor mediated-ACDM and flap management as well as key suturing aspects were discussed.

Soft Tissue Donor Selection: “Connective Tissue Grafts Are Not All Created Equal”
With the evolution of periodontal plastic surgery soft tissue grafting is becoming more and more essential in modern dentistry, whether around natural teeth or dental implants. Many donor grafts have been available to choose from, with autogenous grafts are still being the gold standard, in tissue grafting procedures. This webinar is for clinicians who are interested in different tissue grafts procedures but want to know more about the nature of each graft and what to expect in terms of clinical results. In this webinar we will discuss the differences between different autogenous soft tissue grafts and how to utilize them properly to achieve the best results in various clinical situations.

Microsurgical Soft Tissue Reconstruction for Teeth & Implants - Part 2 of 2 Premium Member Content

Microsurgical Soft Tissue Reconstruction for Teeth & Implants - Part 2 of 2
Esthetics plays a key role in a modern society and the average dental health of the population is improving every day. In such environment, the demands of dental treatments are different and dentists should approach their patients in a different way: they should be prepared to implement different and modern techniques around teeth and implants. Soft tissue grafting techniques provide the dentist with an armamentarium that makes possible to prevent and solve many problems and complications around teeth and implants, making more predictable the treatments results. This presentation is focused in the importance of soft tissue grafting techniques around teeth and implants and how to do it in a predictable, modern and a minimally invasive way. We present many different techniques illustrated with clinical cases.

The Critical “Pink” Interface in Esthetic Dentistry—A Cross-Disciplinary Approach: Options, Limitations, and Solutions Premium Member Content

The Critical “Pink” Interface in Esthetic Dentistry—A Cross-Disciplinary Approach: Options, Limitations, and Solutions
This program is a perspective into how cross- disciplinary interface planning has become and integral part of clinical esthetic dentistry, in particular implant diagnostics. Today it is essential to combine “white” tooth esthetics with “pink” gingival aspects. Understanding the individual prosthetic, surgical, and biologic limitations is part of innovative treatment-planning protocols developed in an approach to provide, simplify, and expedite minimally invasive limited therapy. Preemptive CBCT and 3D CAD/CAM planning of soft and hard tissue procedures, implant placement, ridge reduction, and restorative design now utilize new innovative protocols for the entire restoration from top to bottom - implant, abutment, and restoration - and the interfaces in between.

Buccal Sliding Palatal Pedicle Flap Technique for Wound Closure After Ridge Augmentation

Buccal Sliding Palatal Pedicle Flap Technique for Wound Closure After Ridge Augmentation
One standard approach for wound closure after ridge augmentation is coronal flap advancement. Coronal flap advancement results in displacement of the mucogingival junction and reduction of the vestibulum. In the maxilla, a buccal sliding palatal flap can be applied for primary wound closure after ridge augmentation. The dissected part of the palatal connective tissue is left exposed, thus eliminating or reducing the amount of the coronal flap advancement respectively and increasing the amount of keratinized gingiva. In combination with guided soft tissue augmentation, this flap design enables a three-dimensional peri-implant soft tissue augmentation.

Treating Two Adjacent Missing Teeth in the Esthetic Zone - Part 1: The Pink Hybrid Restoration & the Unilateral Versus Bilateral Defect Concept

Treating Two Adjacent Missing Teeth in the Esthetic Zone - Part 1: The Pink Hybrid Restoration & the Unilateral Versus Bilateral Defect Concept
This article, the first of a planned three-part series, outlines a new surgical & prosthetic approach for treating cases involving two missing adjacent teeth in the esthetic zone. These type of cases, particularly when combined with a three-dimensional ridge deficiency, represent one of esthetic dentistry's most challenging dilemmas. A Clear understanding of the unilateral and bilateral defect concept is necessary to properly evaluate each particular case, understand surgical limitations, perform a better risk assessment, establish an esthetic prognosis, develop the best clinical-laboratory strategy, and adjust patients' expectations. While not recommended for every case, represents a useful, economical, and predictable alternative that decreases the umber and complexity of interventions.
