Bone Grafting Assessment: Focus on the Anterior and Posterior Maxilla Utilizing Advanced 3-D Imaging Technologies Bone Grafting Assessment: Focus on the Anterior and Posterior Maxilla Utilizing Advanced 3-D Imaging Technologies

Summary:

As dental implant reconstruction has evolved into a mainstream alternative to replace missing teeth, bone grafting techniques have also evolved as an ancillary procedure for site development, sinus augmentation, and guided bone regeneration. Concurrently, imaging technologies have been developed which allow unsurpassed inspection of the dental alveolar complex, providing clinicians with innovative tools to plan for dental implant reconstruction. The ability to diagnose and treat dental implants have been forever changed by the ability to assess patient anatomy using Computed Tomography (CT), Cone Beam (CBCT), and interactive treatment planning software within the universal standard "language" of data called DICOM (Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine). This increased ability has been expanded to include appraisal of bone grafting receptor and donor sites through innovations in the interpretation of three dimensional data. In the completely edentulous mandible or maxilla, the use of CBCT technology is an essential tool for assessing anatomy in preparation for implants or grafting. The ability to visualize the extent of a defect from various angles, views, and 3-D reconstructions has helped to define a new set of diagnostic paradigms. A two-dimensional panoramic reconstruction of the maxilla can provide a good scout film of the anatomy; however, as a two-dimensional modality, it has inherent limitations and distortion. The right and left maxillary alveolar bone height can be approximated, and the relative size of the bilateral maxillary sinuses or extent of pnuematization can be assessed in relation to the underlying bone and nasal cavity. However, it is not until all possible two-dimensional and 3D views have been examined that the actual bone anatomy can be appreciated and assessed in relation to the planned reconstruction.

Subclassification and Clinical Management of Extraction Sockets with Labial Dentoalveolar Dehiscence Defects

Subclassification and Clinical Management of Extraction Sockets with Labial Dentoalveolar Dehiscence Defects
Immediate implant therapy involving implants placed into intact Type 1 extraction sockets has become a consistent clinical technique. The classification of Type 2 extraction sockets, where the mucosal tissues are present but there is a midfacial osseous dehiscence defect, has been described according to the extent of the buccal bone plate absence. The literature has offered different techniques in the treatment of Type 2 sockets; however, the extent of the defect has never been defined or delineated.

Multitier Technique for Bone Augmentation Using Intraoral Autogenous Bone Blocks

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).

Vertical Bone Augmentation Using a Tunnel Approach Step by Step - Part 2 of 2
Bone atrophies are one of the most challenging situations in modern implantology. Several techniques have been proposed to be able to place implants in those atrophic situations. This first presentation will show step by step the Split Bone block technique as described by Dr. Khoury to perform horizontal bone augmentation procedures. Bone biology is also explain in order to understand why this technique offer us some great advantages. The second presentation will focus of vertical bone augmentation procedures using this same technique but through a tunnel approach. The advantages of this approach will also be described in this presentation.

Alternative & New Tendencies for Alveolar Reconstruction in Modern Implant Dentistry
Knowledge of bone biology and physiology are crucial for successful dento-alveolar reconstruction. The presentation will review the natural healing process of the bone and the sequence of events needed for proper regeneration. This process will then be discussed and compare with the present materials and technologies available in the market including alloplastics and allogenic materials. The role of the Stem Cells and rh-BMP2 will be exposed as part of these new trends in alveolar reconstruction for modern implant dentistry. Multiple cases will be presented demonstrating the versatility and outcomes in different clinical situations based on biological, bio-mechanics, and implant aesthetic needs.

Ridge Expansion, GBR & Meshes: Decision Making in Clinical Practice
A variety of bone augmentation procedures are currently available at use to the clinician. Techniques of variable complexity can essentially yield favorable results. The choice of technique to utilize however, is often based on defect site presentation and operator comfort level. This presentation will focus on the use of ridge expansion, guided bone regeneration (GBR), and titanium mesh. Merits and indications of each technique will be discussed, and clinical cases will be presented that showcase the decision making process involved in treatment planning.

Hard and Soft Tissue Augmentation: Optimizing Esthetic Results for the Restorative Dentist
Contemporary patient expectations have made esthetics a major requisite of all treatment plans, especially in situations where there is a high smile line. Although new restorative materials have highly improved predictability and esthetic outcomes, soft and hard tissue management play a fundamental role when working in esthetic areas. To achieve ideal esthetics, preservation of the natural soft and hard tissue architecture is a primary clinical objective. These new proposed techniques illustrate the importance of pre-prosthetic soft and hard tissue management when working in highly esthetic compromised areas.
