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.
The safety of bone allografts used in dentistry
Recent media reports concerning “stolen body parts”
have shaken the public’s trust in the safety of and the use of ethical practices involving human allografts. The authors provide a comprehensive review of the safety aspects of human bone allografts.
Use of Bone Grafts for the Enhancement of a GTR-Based Root Coverage Procedure: A Pilot Case Study
The use of guided tissue regeneration (GTR) procedures for the treatment of gingival recession has shown encouraging results and is gaining clinical acceptance. However, attaining space maintenance beneath the membrane remains a problem for clinicians. Hence, the purpose of this pilot case study was to evaluate the effect of adjunctive demineralized freeze-dried bone allograft (DFDBA) placement during collagen membrane GTR-based root coverage procedures. Five patients with Miller Class I or II defects…
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…
Synergy of Bone and Gingival Augmentation in Tooth Replacement - Part 2 of 4
This lecture will highlight the current available regenerative techniques and protocols to maximize the esthetic results of tooth replacement therapy.
Optimum Implant Esthetics Through Extraction Socket Preservation Techniques.
This presentation will focus on ideal implant placement through maintaining the bucco-lingual dimension of bone following extraction through extraction socket preservation techniques.
The Use of Emdogain and BioOss Collagen in Bone Regenerative Procedures
This video will discuss the steps necessary to preapre a site for bone regenerative procedures. The materials used for regeneration in the cases discussed will be Emdogain and BioOss collagen. Reentry of the areas will be shown and in several cases 10+ years visual evaluation will be seen.
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
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.
A Defined Algorithm for Regenerative Success Part 2
These presentations will focus open the above concepts but prioritize the diagnostic phase and surgical common denominators required for a successful regenerative outcome. Flap design, space maintenance, bone and membrane selections and tension free closure provides the template for all the new age materials and technologies to be successful in clinical practice. The three-dimensional reconstruction of the implant receptor site comprises two distinct phases: Regeneration and Bioengineering of the Hard Tissues Reconstruction and Development of the Soft Tissues This program will cover Site Development and Optimal Regenerative Technologies and Techniques in Implant Dentistry both prior to and at the time of implant placement.
