A Bovine-Bone Mineral Block for the Treatment of Severe Ridge Deficiencies in the Anterior Region: A Clinical Case Report A Bovine-Bone Mineral Block for the Treatment of Severe Ridge Deficiencies in the Anterior Region: A Clinical Case Report

Summary:

A bovine-bone mineral block was used to treat a severe horizontal and vertical anterior ridge deficiency. Such a block can be shaped to conform to the defect, and it avoids the need for harvesting autogenous bone or fixation of the block with screws. After a 6-month integration period, an implant was placed. Six months later the implant was restored with a single crown. The case has been followed for 3 years. Slow bone resorption has been observed at the interface between the block and the surrounding bone, but the interproximal bone peaks, important for soft tissue support and esthetics, have been maintained over time. The 3-year follow-up results suggest that bovine-bone mineral blocks may be a suitable bone-replacement material for augmentation of extensive alveolar ridge defects in the anterior region.

Atrophic Posterior Maxillan and Mandible: Alveolar Ridge Reconstruction with Mandibular Block Autografts

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.

Bio-Surgery; Tips for More Biological and Prosthodontic Approach
In oral rehabilitation, obtaining a good aesthetic outcome is no longer enough for our patients. It is imperative that these good results do prevail in time. The best way to achieve this goal, is to correctly diagnose each individual clinical case, and to choose Biological tools and Biological treatment techniques, that respect our own physiology and Nature. Through this lecture, the authors try to share a few Surgical and Prosthodontic Bio-tips in Implant Dentistry, that in a simple and predictable way, can lead us to a great long lasting aesthetic results.

Managing the Extraction Site - Optimal Preservation and Enhancement Techniques
There is rarely a day that clinicians do not have to deal with an extraction site. If implant therapy is a consideration, then bone and soft tissue quantity and quality must be factored into treatment options. The ideal opportunity for bone preservation exists at the time of tooth extraction. All too often this opportunity is lost. Extraction techniques will be demonstrated that not only preserve but augment the amount of alveolar bone. The importance of piezosurgery, atraumatic surgical technique, the use of bone grafts, resorbable membranes and growth factors will be elucidated along with soft tissue enhancement.

Interpositional Bone Grafts to Treat the Posterior Atrophic Mandible Premium Member Content

Interpositional Bone Grafts to Treat the Posterior Atrophic Mandible
This presentation analyzes the interpositional bone graft or inlay technique, discussing the reconstructive surgical approach. Horizontal osteotomy with the interposition of bone in the form of a “sandwich” involves raising a coronal osteotomized segment of the mandible, which is still attached to the lingual periosteum, and interpositioning a block bone graft. This technique guarantees a dual vascular supply to the inlay graft from the lingual periosteum and from the residual bone; it also allows optimum use of the native basal bone, which should be less prone to resorption. The advantages and disadvantages of the inlay technique are compared with other commonly used augmentation techniques in the management of posterior mandibular atrophies.

Bone Reconstruction: A New Algorithm for the Implantologist
Bone augmentation is often required to place an adequate number of dental implants in ideal positions for prosthetic support. In addition to biomechanical demands bone augmentation can also provide proper ridge contour for improved esthetic outcomes. Disadvantages of bone augmentation techniques include increase morbidity, surgical time, costs and treatment length. As such a trend has develop towards treatment approaches that avoid bone grafting including shorter and narrower implants, angled implants and/or fewer implants for prosthetic support. This presentation will look at various bone augmentation techniques, methods to minimize the morbidity of bone grafting and guide clinicians on implant rehabilitation with grafting versus non-grafting approaches.
