Mandibular Block Autografts for Alveolar Ridge Augmentation
Michael A Pikos, DDS
This article reviews indications, limitations, presurgical evaluation, surgical protocol, and complications associated with mandibular block autografts harvested from the symphysis and ramus buccal shelf for alveolar ridge augmentation. The author draws from 14 years of experience with more than 500 mandibular block autografts.
Human Histologic Evaluation of Anorganic Bovine Bone Mineral Combined with Recombinant Human Platelet-Derived Growth Factor BB in Maxillary Sinus Augmentation: Case Series Study
The objective of this study was to examine the potential for improved bone regenerative outcomes in maxillary sinus augmentation procedures using platelet-derived growth factor BB and anorganic bovine bone mineral.
Alloplastic Bone Substitutes Around Dental Implants
The repair of osseous defects has been a goal in dentistry for many decades. Subsequently, within the last several years, there has been an emergence of a new class of materials in dentistry referred to as synthetic bone. Finding the ideal bone substitute material has been the goal of researchers for many years. In attempting to achieve this ideal material, dental practitioners have tried with varying degrees of success: autogenous and demineralized freeze-dried bone, allografts of plastic, carbon…
"Sandwich" Bone Augmentation Technique - Rationale and Report of Pilot Cases
The aim of this article is to present a new technique for augmentation of deficient alveolar ridges and/or correction of osseous defects around dental implants.

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.
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.
Increase Surgical Implant and Regenerative Success by Going 3D and Using Innovative Products
Detailed videos using 3D planning software as well as innovative products by a speaker with an extensive background in implant and regenerative surgical procedures.
Biologic Strategies to Enhance Clinical and Aesthetic Success in Oral Implantology
This webinar will discuss clinical strategies for treatment of the complex implant site involving bone grafting and implant placement. Our understanding of cellular pathways, and our ability to control the wound response, expands our capacity to effect better aesthetic outcomes and compress treatment time. The reduction of the inflammatory phase of tissue regeneration speeds up osseointegration, prevents crestal bone loss, maintains papillary form, increases the density of peri-implant bone and increases tissue biotype. This enhanced tissue response allows us to predictably treat even the most complex surgical cases, compress time to final reconstruction, and to maintain these favorable tissue outcomes over an extended period of time. The use of dental implants with advanced biologic features and the incorporation autologous growth factors will be demonstrated.
