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.

Socket Gafting with the use of Autologous Bone - an Experimental Study in the Dog

Socket Gafting with the use of Autologous Bone - an Experimental Study in the Dog
In five beagle dogs, the distal roots of the third and fourth mandibular premolars were removed. The sockets in the right or the left jaw quadrant were grafted with either anorganic bovine bone or with chips of autologous bone harvested from the buccal bone plate. After 3 months of healing, biopsies of the experimental sites were sampled, prepared for buccal–lingual ground sections and examined with respect to size and composition.

Current Concepts for the Preservation of the Post-Extraction Alveolar Ridge Premium Member Content

Current Concepts for the Preservation of the Post-Extraction Alveolar Ridge
Different techniques have been presented in literature in order to preserve the post-extraction site; including the use of barrier membranes, tri-dimensional matrix and bone fillers. An “open-healing” approach is nowadays commonly used, combining a proper management of soft tissues with biological integration of biomaterials. Once hard tissue has been successfully augmented, an adequate soft tissue thickness becomes mandatory in order to create healthy and stable peri-implant tissues. An innovative volume-stable collagen matrix provides the opportunity to treat soft tissue defects around implants as an alternative to connective tissue graft.

Advanced Bone Grafting Techniques: Part 1 - Autogenous Bone Blocks in the Reconstruction of the Atrophic Mandibular Ridge Premium Member Content

Advanced Bone Grafting Techniques: Part 1 - Autogenous Bone Blocks in the Reconstruction of the Atrophic Mandibular Ridge
This lecture will describe the use of autologous onlay block bone grafting for reconstruction of moderate to severe atrophic posterior mandibular alveolar ridge. This will include a discussion of the various options to this form of grafting, such as Short implants, Lingual positioning, nerve repositioning, distraction osteogenesis, and GBR. The Mutli-Tier onlay Bone Graft Technique will be highlighted in this presentation. Additionally, a review of a recently submitted research paper of long term follow up of implants placed into autologous bone blocks harvested from the mandibular ramus, retromolar and sympheseal areas will be discussed.

Novel Technique for Alveolar Bone Augmentation; Introducing The "Bio-Bone-Block" Concept
This presentation will discuss the use of autologous onlay block bone grafting for reconstruction of moderate to severe maxillary and mandibular alveolar ridge deficiencies. In particular, emphasis on the “Bio-Bone-Block” concept and re-entry to the original donor site for a second block harvest, if necessary. We will also covers the use of progenitor cells (bone marrow aspirating concentrated) along with PRP and PPP for accelerated healing.
