Atrophic Posterior Maxillan and Mandible: Alveolar Ridge Reconstruction with Mandibular Block Autografts
Autogenous bone grafts have been used for many years for alveolar ridge augmentation and are still considered to be the gold standard for jaw reconstruction. The use of these grafts with osseointegrated implants was originally discussed by Brånemark et al., who used the iliac crest as the donor site. For repair of most localized alveolar defects, however, bone grafts from the mandible offer advantages over iliac crest grafts. These include the proximity of donor and recipient sites, convenient surgical access, decreased donor site morbidity and decreased cost. This article focuses on posterior maxillary and mandibular osseous augmentation in a staged approach for implant placement. Both horizontal and vertical deficiencies are addressed with the use of symphysis and ramus buccal shelf donor block bone via case presentations.
Histologic Effect of Pure-Phase Beta-Tricalcium Phosphate on Bone Regeneration in Human Artificial Jawbone Defects
The effect of the pure-phase beta-tricalcium phosphate (beta-TCP) Cerasorb on
bone regeneration was evaluated in hollow titanium cylinders implanted in the
posterior jaws of five volunteers.
Multitier Technique for Bone Augmentation Using Intraoral Autogenous Bone Blocks
Brånemarket al1 originally described autologous bone grafts used with dental implants,and they are now a well-accepted procedure in oral and maxillofacial rehabilitation. Placement of an end osseous implant requires sufficient bone volume for complete bone coverage.Further-more,the patter no fridge resorption ,which contributes to a nun favorable maxillo mandibular relationship,requires angulation of the implant and/or angled abutment,and affects the proximity of adjacent facial concavities (maxillary sinus,nasal cavity)and vital structures(mandibular nerve).
The Use of SonicWeld Ultrasonically Fabricated Barriers for Enhanced Outcomes in Guided Bone Regeneration
This video will outline the basic science, clinical techniques and outcomes of the SonicWeld technique.
Creative Next Generation Surgical Tools and Solutions for the Implant Practice
This lecture will highlight specifically New Age Tools which offer creative and effective solutions for space maintenance, autologous bone harvesting, atraumatic implant removal, and screw fixation. Creative mini-titanium mesh shapes(CTI), autologous bone harvesting drills (ACM Auto Chip Maker), counter torque implant removal systems as well as tenting and fixation screw systems will be discussed and featured.
Alveolar Ridge Regenerative Strategies: Autogenous Bone vs BMP-2
This clinical based presentation will compare the use of autogenous bone vs BMP-2 for alveolar ridge reconstruction. The science, indications, advantages and disadvantages of each approach will be featured. Single tooth to full arch reconstruction cases will also be shown along with understanding the application of non-resorbable vs resorbable mesh barriers for alveolar ridge reconstruction.
Tissue Engineering and Platelet Derived Growth Factors: Evidence Based Therapy
Platelet derived growth factors are now routinely utilized in reconstructive therapy. This presentation describes very detailed and evidence based guidelines for clinicians interested in enhancing their abilities in tissue engineering, especially as it relates to bone augmentation. Specifically, while successful bone augmentation requires the standard surgical parameters of space maintenance, low pressure on the grafts and tension-free flap closure, optimization of this goal requires management and enhancement of the local biological conditions with growth factors. Towards that end, platelet concentrates through the constant release of growth factors are able to promote and enhance new vascularization, provide plasma protein, normal lipidemia, as well as increased collagen and fibrin activity.
BMP, PRP, PRGF and PRF; At the Edge of Regenerative Surgery
This webinar will review the wound healing process and the role that growth factors play in regeneration. BMP, PRP, PRF and PRGF will be reviewed and their clinical applications will be demonstrated.
