Dr. Levine once again teamed up with periodontal colleagues for an article published in the October issue of Compendium. Writing this time about soft-tissue dental regeneration (ridge augmentation) and the use of a promising new material known as volume stable collagen matrix (VSCM), Dr. Levine contributed details about a patient who wanted replacement of bottom (mandibular) teeth. Dr. Levine describes how the use of VSCM helped minimize post-surgical follow up and patient discomfort.
As our patients and blog readers know, Dr. Levine is a prolific author of more than 80 professional articles and several book chapters on important periodontal subjects including regenerative surgery, oral plastic surgery, dental implants and laser gum disease treatment. As a visiting professor and mentor, he continues to share his knowledge with colleagues throughout the world.
