Buccal Plate Regeneration with Immediate Postextraction Implant Placement and Restoration: Case Reports
In these reports, buccal bone plate regeneration was obtained
through a flapless approach and immediate postextraction implant
placement with a cancellous bone and collagen graft in the buccal gap.
Flapless Postextraction Socket Implant Placement in the Esthetic Zone: Part 1. The Effect of Bone Grafting and/or Provisional Restoration on Facial-Palatal Ridge Dimensional Change
The dental literature has reportted vertical soft tissue changes that can occur with immediate implant placement, bone grafting, and provisional restoration ranging from a gain or loss of 1.0mm. However, little is known of the effects of facial-palatal collapse of the ridge due to these clinical procedures. Based upon treatment modalities rendered, an ensuing contour change can occur with significant negative esthetic consequences. The results of a retrospective clinical cohort study evaluating the change in horizontal ridge dimension associated with implant placement in anterior postextraction sockets are presented for four treatment groups. Therefore, it is recommended to place a bone graft and contoured healing abutment or provisional restoration at the time of flapless postextraction socket implant placement.
"Sandwich" Bone Augmentation Technique - Rationale and Report of Pilot Cases
The aim of this article is to present a new technique for augmentation of deficient alveolar ridges and/or correction of osseous defects around dental implants.
Bone Putties for GBR and Ridge Augmentation: A review for the general practitioner - Part 1 of 2
Dr. Michael Tischler reviews the utilization of bone allografts in putty form for guided bone regeneration, GBR, and ridge augmentation.
Allograftic Bone Block in a Complex Augmentation Case in the Maxilla
Dr. Sivan Kars outlines his approach to utilizing an allograft bone block to reconstruct a severely resorbed area around a maxillary first premolar extraction site.
Implant Placement in the Posterior Mandible in Combination with Titanium Mesh and PRGF for Horizontal Bone Augmentation
Simultaneous implant placement and titanium mesh are utilized with mineralized irradiated bone allograft and PRGF to augment the deficient ridge form.
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.
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.
