Summary:

Although clinicians have used human bone allografts safely in the practice of dentistry for more than four decades, recent media reports have shaken the public’s confidence in this treatment option. In late 2005, the New York Police Department investigated Biomedical Tissue Services (BTS, Fort Lee, N.J.), a human tissue recovery firm, for allegedly selling “stolen human body parts. Ensuing police investigations uncovered a ghastly operation in which BTS employees dismembered dozens of human corpses for allograft tissue that they sold to be used in a multitude of medical and dental operations.

Reconstruction of Damaged Fresh Sockets by Connective-Bone Sliver Graft From the Maxillary Tuberosity, to Enable Immediate Dentoalveolar Restoration - A Clinical Case
This paper describes a procedure for immediate loading of an implant following tooth extraction, in a socket presenting severe damage to the vestibular bone plate and gingival recession in the region of the upper central incisors. The procedures of extraction of the tooth, immediate insertion of the implant, connective- bone graft from the maxillary tuberosity and immediate restoration were shown to be a predictable treatment alternative. These procedures led to restoration of the tooth, bone and gingival structures in a single surgical stage and to maintenance of the favorable esthetic and functional result 24 months afterwards.

Multitier Technique for Bone Augmentation Using Intraoral Autogenous Bone Blocks

Multitier Technique for Bone Augmentation Using Intraoral Autogenous Bone Blocks
Brånemarket al1 originally described autologous bone grafts used with dental implants,and they are now a well-accepted procedure in oral and maxillofacial rehabilitation. Placement of an end osseous implant requires sufficient bone volume for complete bone coverage.Further-more,the patter no fridge resorption ,which contributes to a nun favorable maxillo mandibular relationship,requires angulation of the implant and/or angled abutment,and affects the proximity of adjacent facial concavities (maxillary sinus,nasal cavity)and vital structures(mandibular nerve).

Severe Atrophic Anterior Maxilla: Advantages of Combined Therapy - Part 1 of 2
Anterior maxillary alveolar bone deficiency, can prevent implant placement for fixed rehabilitation and jeopardize the esthetic outcome. Clinical case of severe atrophy of anterior maxilla, due to loss of implants, is described: A combination of sub-nasal procedure and intra-oral autologous onlay bone graft were used for ridge augmentation and dental implant placement in steps procedure, combined with Bio-Oss saturated in Platelets Rich Plasma (PRP) and covered with platelets-poor-plasma (PPP) as a "biological membrane".

Managing Esthetic Implant Complications Premium Member Content

Managing Esthetic Implant Complications
Dental implant success today is judged not only by osseointegration but also by bone, tissue stability and of course long term esthetic results. Cosmetic predictability can often be difficult to attain, and esthetic implant failures can be multifactorial and patient management issues. Once esthetic implant failures occur, many cannot be fully corrected. Some complications must be addressed by an interdisciplinary dental team. In this summary of case reports, surgical considerations are provided, including cases of facial asymmetry/recession due to facial implant placement or bone loss resulting from technique/treatment failures, as well as papillary deficiencies. Restorative considerations for correcting failures are also discussed.

Negative Factors for Soft & Hard Tissue Maintenance Premium Member Content

Negative Factors for Soft & Hard Tissue Maintenance
Maintaining the bone is the most difficult challenge in implantology (bone grafted or native bone around implants). If a tissue want to live long, it has to follow 2 conditions: The first condition is to organize a full blood supply.. However, it’s not enough. The solution for the long term stability is to try to organize the stability of the blood supply.. by the respect of several biologic conditions. Almost of these conditions are explained in this lecture. We introduce here the new concept to avoid the reduction of blood supply by the periosteal incision: the soft brushing technique is the first technique which allows a very large increase of the flap without any incision: the flap closure without tension but without any incision.
