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
Maximizing Aesthetics in the Deficient Alveolar Ridge
This article will present a predictable method for replacing the lost bone prior to implant placement through the ramus block graft technique.
Mandibular Block Autografts for Alveolar Ridge Augmentation
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.
Bone Graft Planning Using Stereolithographic Models
3D Planning of bone deficiencies is highlighted using titanium mesh and model simulation.
Managing Complications in Immediate Implant Therapy - Part 2 of 3
Immediate implant placement in fresh extraction sockets offers several advantages which include patient comfort, ridge preservation as well as decreased treatment time.
Implant Placement and Grafting of a Central Incisor
A step-by-step one-stage implant placement and bone grafting in a deficient central incisor area.
Managing the Extraction Site - Optimal Preservation and Enhancement Techniques
The importance of piezosurgery, atraumatic surgical technique, the use of bone grafts, resorbable membranes and growth factors will be elucidated along with soft tissue enhancement.
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.
Tissue Engineering and Platelet Derived Growth Factors: Evidence Based Therapy
Platelet derived growth factors are now routinely utilized in reconstructive therapy. This presentation describes very detailed and evidence based guidelines for clinicians interested in enhancing their abilities in tissue engineering, especially as it relates to bone augmentation. Specifically, while successful bone augmentation requires the standard surgical parameters of space maintenance, low pressure on the grafts and tension-free flap closure, optimization of this goal requires management and enhancement of the local biological conditions with growth factors. Towards that end, platelet concentrates through the constant release of growth factors are able to promote and enhance new vascularization, provide plasma protein, normal lipidemia, as well as increased collagen and fibrin activity.
