Summary:

The objective of this proof-of-principle study was to examine the potential for improved bone regenerative outcomes in maxillary sinus augmentation procedures when recombinant human platelet-derived growth factor BB (0.3 mg/mL) is combined with particulate anorganic bovine bone mineral. The surgical outcomes in all treated sites were uneventful at 6 to 8 months, with sufficient regenerated bone present to allow successful placement of maxillary posterior implants.

Elements and Utilization of Suturing Needles

Elements and Utilization of Suturing Needles
The primary components of every suturing needle include the attachment end, body, and point. Traditional complications caused by threading have been eliminated by the advent of needles that are permanently attached to the suturing material. The suturing procedure is further simplified by the attached and press-fitted end of the needle (swaged) that enables the clinician to draw it through the tissue with less trauma.

Barriers in the Surgical Suite: Standards Required

Barriers in the Surgical Suite: Standards Required
Dental implant, periodontal , and oral surgical procedures or any potentially hemorrhagic procedures put the practitioner and staff at risk for exposure to blood-borne viruses (eg, AIDS, Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C), as well as saliva and blood-transmitted pathogens (eg, Mycobacterium tuberculosis, Staphyloccus, Streptococcus, cytomegalovirus). There are also a number of viruses that may infect the upper respiratory tract. In these cases, infections may be transmitted through direct contact with blood…

Alternative & New Tendencies for Alveolar Reconstruction in Modern Implant Dentistry Premium Member Content

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.

Laser Uncovery of Dental Implants Premium Member Content

Laser Uncovery of Dental Implants
Although many clinicians prefer to place all their implants in a one stage approach there are times when a healing abutment must be sacrificed for a cover screw and the implant buried for a two stage approach. In situations where primary stability is low, where bone grafting has occurred or where less than 2 mm of soft tissue is available then a safer approach may be to uncover the fixtures after a 3 month healing. Lasers have become a go to “soft tissue hand piece” for many clinicians when manipulating soft tissue around implants due to their minimal zone of necrosis, ability to provide ideal hemostasis and their safety of use around fixtures compared to traditional soft tissue methodologies like electrosurgical units, some of which can lead to catastrophic failures with implants. See how both diode lasers and erbium lasers can be used safely and efficiently to uncover and move tissue around implants during stage two surgeries

Controlled Ridge Splitting (CRS) Premium Member Content

Controlled Ridge Splitting (CRS)
To demonstrate a new technique of controlled ridge splitting (CRS) in severely atrophied maxillary cases as an alternative to autogenous block graft. Twenty cases were completed using a controlled ridge splitting (CRS) technique with a total of 65 implants were placed in severely atrophied Maxillae and followed after the implants were loaded. Results: The CRS technique was used in very complex cases, where the alternative method will be autogenous block graft. A total of 65 tapered implants were placed. The implants diameter ranged between 3.25-5mm with a length ranged between 10-13mm. The implants were restored and were followed for 1-3 years. All implants achieved osseointegration and continue to have successful prostheses. Conclusion: The CRS is a predictable treatment option and could be a good alternative to autogenous block grafts is severely atrophic maxillae.
