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.
Physical And Chemical Properties Of Commercially Available Mineralized Bone Allograft
Bone graft materials are critical to the success of dental
implants when there is a need to increase the volume of bone
in a defect. The surface properties of these graft materials will have a profound impact on the outcome of the graft procedure. The clinician has many choices of bone graft substitutes when augmenting bony deficits. Allograft bone is the most widely used class of bone graft substitutes. Within this class there are a number of different bone allografts, which are manufactured utilizing widely varying processing techniques. There also appears to be a wide range of results in the published literature across the spectrum of different bone allografts.
This in-vitro study evaluated chemical and surface
properties of five different commercially available
mineralized bone allografts.
Intraoral Autogenous Block Onlay Bone Grafting for ExtensiveReconstruction of Atrophic Maxillary Alveolar Ridges
Autologous bone grafting used with dental implants was originally described by Bränemarketal in 1975, and is now a well-accepted procedure in oral and maxillofacial rehabilitation.Placement of an endosseous implant requires sufficient bone volume for complete bone coverage. Furthermore, the pattern of ridge resorption contributes to an unfavorable maxillomandibular relationship, requires angulations of the implants and/or angled abutments, and affects the proximity of adjacent facial concavities(maxillary sinus, nasal cavity) and vital structures(mandibular nerve).
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…
Tibial Harvest Technique for Bone Augmentation
Dr. Michael Pikos demonstrates the surgical aspects of harvesting bone from the tibia in preparation for bone augmentation.
Making Successful Clinical Decisions in Esthetic Implant Therapy - Part 3 of 3
This presentation will outline a systematic diagnostic and treatment design protocol for anterior implant supported restorations as well as how implant design, components and regenerative techniques influence the process.
SGFBR (Screw Guided Fast Bone Regeneration) Horizontal & Vertical Bone Augmentation of the Atrophic Mandible
This presentation will highlight a less invasive surgical option to autogenous block transplantation and has displayed a very high success rate.
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.
Partners in Synergy - The Webinar Event; Augmentation Strategies in Implant Dentistry
This course will highlight the current available regenerative techniques and protocols to maximize the esthetic results of tooth replacement therapy. Extraction site management, labial bone enhancement as well as current gingival augmentation techniques will be featured. These highly acclaimed clinicians and educators will team up to provide a glimpse of their upcoming LIVE Synergy VI conference June 27th - 30th, 2013 in Orlando, Florida
BMP, PRP, PRGF and PRF; At the Edge of Regenerative Surgery
Biological modifiers and growth factors are substances that the body produces naturally in response to injury or disease. The use of these substances in regenerative procedures has made hard and soft tissue regeneration more predictable while accelerating healing and decreasing patient morbidity.
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. At the end of this webinar the participant will have a good understanding of the differences between these biological modifiers and their benefits.
