Long-Term Block Graft Stability in Thin Periodontal Biotype Patients - A Clinical and Tomographic Study
Autogenous block grafting seems to be a predictable treatment modality to reconstruct alveolar ridge defects in the long term. A thin periodontal biotype did not seem to affect the volume of transplanted bone for the population studied.
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…
Bone Grafting Assessment: Focus on the Anterior and Posterior Maxilla Utilizing Advanced 3-D Imaging Technologies
As dental implant reconstruction has evolved into a mainstream alternative to replace missing teeth, bone grafting techniques have also evolved as an ancillary procedure for site development, sinus augmentation, and guided bone regeneration.
Pre-Implant Ridge Bioengineering: The Bone Block Allograft Technique - Part 2 of 2
Narrow ridge deficiencies can limit dental implant placement. As well, the pain and various complications associated with chin, ramus and hip bone block grafts for ridge augmentation purposes discourage many from pursuing this method of treatment. The 'bone block allograft technique' helps overcome narrow ridge limitations for dental implant placement as well as minimizing surgical post-op pain, risks and complications. This is an extremely versatile procedure which can be performed in the anterior and posterior sextants of both the maxillary and mandibular arches.
