The 21 Protocols
21 Step-by-step surgical protocols from free gingival grafting, through managing the missing buccal plate to crown lengthening and many more. Learn how to implement these protocols through Ziv's personalized coaching system.
Welcome to the 21 protocols!
In the next 21 videos, I'm going to teach how to perform 21 procedures, step-by-step, in a concise and practical way.
Protocol 1: Free gingival graft
This protocol teaches you a simple technique to improve tissue quality, eliminate the frenum pull and prevent further recession.
Protocol 2: Managing the missing buccal plate
In this video you will learn to handle the missing buccal plate and the system I use.
Protocol 3: Vertical extraction
In this video I review the protocol for pure vertical extraction with minimal to no damage to the surrounding bone.
Protocol 4: Full arch closure
Following this protocol will allow you to create a full arch closure that is secure and doesn't open.
Protocol 5: Implant algorithm
The idea behind this protocol is to keep you focused on the path from tooth extraction (or a missing tooth) to the loading phase.
Protocol 6: Soft tissue grafting an implant site
Now that you know how to graft to improve tissue quality (protocol #1), let's apply the same principles for an implant site.
Protocol 7: Dry socket management
Many doctors fear this complications. Not you because you know what to expect and how to handle. All in this video
Protocol 8: Sinus perforation after extraction
That will happen. Even under the best circumstances. Some roots form the floor of the sinus. Here's the protocol
Protocol 9: Broken instrument management
Take a deep breath when it happens. Don't freak out and don't show how you feel to the outside world.
Protocol 10: Guided case work up
The guided world can be very complex and also very simple. Try to learn the basics before you tackle difficult cases.
Protocol 11: Socket Shield
I love this technique. It's not for beginners so be aware that complications can happen.
Protocol 12: Implant Surgery protocol
Every surgeon does it differently but what you'll find in this protocol is the way I do it.
The key for a proper sinus lift with the window technique is:

Protocol 14: Dentin graft processing
Great and stable graft. It gets ankylosed to the patient's bone
Protocol 15: Palatal pedicle flap
Get experienced first with a connective tissue harvesting. This technique is mostly for the esthetic zone but can also be used to closed an oro-antral fistula.
Protocol 16: Connective tissue graft harvest
This technique is called the "1 incision technique" but it's made out of 6 incisions I describe in the protocol.
Protocol 17: Local anesthesia for implants posterior mandible
Common question and you may have fallen victim to a common dogma about this.
Protocol 18: Indirect sinus lift
This procedure is a must for any dentist who wants to place implants in the posterior maxilla. Over 90% of all cases will require this simple procedure.
Protocol 19: Nerve injury management
Not fun and can lead to bad things. You must know the anatomy and prevent nerve injury.
Protocol 20: Functional crown lengthening
You don't have to live with deep sub-gingival margins or impressions that don't come out.
Protocol 21: Esthetic crown lengthening
I would love for you to be able to give this gift to your patients.
I would definitely recommend Surgical Masters. It’s unique, it’s powerful on multiple levels. I would tell anybody that’s looking to improve their game both clinically, professionally, personally, this is a great investment.
It has good theoretical knowledge, it has great – hands on, very interactive, there’s a clinical component in the office, it’s a fantastic venue and it’s overall a very well paced course as well.
I used to not do much surgery at all, and since I started with Surgical Master, I’ve been doing a lot more surgery, has improved my bottom line and renewed my interest in dentistry.
