Questions & Comments

David; Good question. I am not sure why not. As for today, I would most likely use a similar approach but with a Tunnel Approach and PRGF/PRF instead. Thanks Dr. Salama

Maurice,
In the absence of PRP can the alloderm be used as a carrier for the emdogain (enamel matrix derivative)? question from

nice technique... this was in 2007... means 7 yrs ago,,, so what do think about this technique now ?? u still use it ???

Dear Dr.Salama. Thank you for the great presentation. I got three questions for you. Is the complete submergence of the graft also necessary for palatal connective tissue grafts and if so - where is the root coverage effect beside the thickening of the tissue? Why do you generally prefer connective tissue grafts? Is there a greater risk of inflammation with allografts? Do you therefore always have to use PRGF? Don´t you risk the papilla with these flap designs. I wonder why the tunnel technique is not utilized in the other videos about alloderm as well - like Dr. Allen´s presentation. Best regards.

Thank Dr. Maurice, is Emdogain a gel? and can I utilize with fibrine membrane (PRGF)?

Thank Dr. Maurice, is Emdogain a gel? and utilize with fibrine membrane (PRGF)?

Thank you

Terek;
No difference in the way you suggest suturing and I prefer to trim the alloderm and any sharp edges. Most important not to have alloderm over vertical incision lines.

Tarek Ali - (7/18/2009 2:14 AM)

Hi Dr. Salama, thank you for the great video. I have two questions for you: 1. Would it make any difference if you were to secure the Alloderm individually first using something like 5-0 Vicryl first then coronally advance the flap to completely cover it ? 2. Is trimming the sharp edges of the Alloderm advantageous in any way or not ? Once again thank you and looking forward to your reply.

Esthetic Tissue Reconstruction Around Implants - Part 2 of 2 Premium Member Content

Esthetic Tissue Reconstruction Around Implants - Part 2 of 2
Esthetics in implant-supported restorations is an important clinical objective in contemporary dentistry. Understanding the biological behavior of hard and soft tissues following tooth extraction is the first step to anticipate the physiological tissue remodeling and its consequences. Our objective in these 2 sequencial lectures was to provide straightforward decision trees related to several clinical scenarios observed in routine clinical practice. The 3 fundamental pillars for peri-implant excellence are: restorative-driven implant position, hard and soft tissue reconstruction using different biomaterials and grafts, and prosthetic management. Using this philosophical approach seems to provide esthetic and stable results over time irrespective of the initial clinical condition.

Soft Tissue Management - The Pink Contribution to Achieving Esthetic and Long Lasting Smiles
Today's patients expectations and demands, seek for high aesthetic an long-lasting treatments. For this reason, soft tissue management is often required to provide thick soft tissues around implants and natural teeth, therefore it must be carefully planned and integrated at the treatment plan. Being the palate our primary choice as soft tissue's donor area, in this lecture is also presented a simple and effective way to reduce patients morbidity after harvesting the palatal mucosa, the PRGF-ENDORET Graft.

Esthetic Zone Reconstruction: Synergy of Hard and Soft Tissue Grafting Premium Member Content

Esthetic Zone Reconstruction: Synergy of Hard and Soft Tissue Grafting
The loss of alveolar ridge contour in the esthetic zone compromises both esthetics and function. This clinical presentation will focus on the application of both hard and soft tissue grafting in the esthetic zone implementing state of the art interactive CT diagnosis and treatment planning for optimal esthetic implant reconstruction. Emphasis will be on indications, graft and harvest site assessment, timing, and use of bioactive modifiers including BMP, PRGF and PDGF. The surgical protocol utilizing allogeneic and autogenous grafts in conjunction with connective tissue grafts, acellular dermis matrix, and related soft tissue procedures to avoid functional and esthetic pitfalls will be featured. Pre and post-grafting prosthetic workup, interactive CT graft assessment and perio prosthetic driven implant planning, stent driven implant placement, and computer milled abutment fabrication including guided surgery will be included.

While different surgical techniques can restore most aspects of a ridge deficiency,as part of the soft tissue restorative frame, the regeneration of lost proximal papilla form is surgically limited to those papillae bordered on each side by a pontic The Classification of 6 types of papilla defects is based on the specifics of the restorative support on either side of the individual site,and can therefore be a tooth, implant or pontic, or combinations of the 3.

Clinical Realities - Maximizing Aesthetics and Health Using a Closed-Flap ER: YSGG Laser Technique
Dental lasers have evolved considerably as an adjunct and alternative treatment to safely, conservatively, and reliably decrease bacterial levels and improve the hard and soft tissue contours. In selected cases, long-term aesthetic and functional parameters are satisfied with precise restorative planning and technique and by utilizing minimally invasive procedures. Furthermore, patients are provided with optimal results more comfortably and efficiently.

Connective Tissue & Bone Graft for Anterior Immediate Implant Placement

Connective Tissue & Bone Graft for Anterior Immediate Implant Placement
Immediate implant placement in a one-stage approach, with or without provisionalization, has proven to be advantageous in preserving gingival anatomy around dental implants. But placing implants immediately in the changing alveolar bone of an extraction socket can result in progressive recession of the gingival labial margin over the implant restoration. Thicker biotypes and bone of the labial periimplant tissue have been shown to promote long-term stable gingival margins. A surgically simple technique…
