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).
Retrospective Evaluation of Crestal Bone Changes Around Implants With Reduced Abutment Diameter Placed Non-Submerged and at Subcrestal Positions: The Effect of Bone Grafting at Implant Placement
One method to measure the success of dental implant treatment is to evaluate marginal peri-implant bone-level changes and stability over time. The location of the fixture–abutment interface (FAI) can be of major importance when the goal is to construct esthetic restorations. In these situations the FAI is often placed in a more apical position to create an ideal emergence profile for the prosthetic construction. However, several animal studies have reported that placement of the FAI in a subcrestal position may result in peri-implant marginal bone loss. The aim of the present study is to evaluate the effect of bone grafting of the defect between the bone crest and the coronal aspect of the implant for implants with reduced abutment diameters placed non-submerged and in subcrestal positions.
Peridontal Osseous Surgery and Root Resective Therapy
Historically, osseous surgery was performed to eliminate infected bone. Early in the 20th century clinicians realized that periodontally affected bone was not actually infected. Instead of an invasive bacterial infection, chronic inflammation was responsible for bone destruction. This finding changed the rationale for periodontal therapy and led to modern concepts of osseous surgery. Currently accepted approaches are based on guidelines, parameters, and definitions published by many highly respected…
Surgical Options and Solutions in Maxillary Ridge Augmentation: Advantages of Combined Therapy
This surgical video presentation will demonstrate the treatment of two advanced cases of maxillary deficiency. The emphasis of this presentation will be on combining several state-of-the-art surgical augmentation therapies to optimize dimensional increases in the deficient ridges in the maxilla in preparation of implant therapy.
The two cases presented, of severe and moderate bone defects, in the Anterior Maxilla, the bone were reconstructed by using the anatomy (sub-nasal elevation), and several surgical techniques (bone augmentation, soft tissue manipulation and implant placement) in a systematic team oriented protocol (Surgeon, Restorative Dentist and Lab) to get the best esthetic results.
Surgical Protocols for Socket Type 2 in the Aesthetic Zone
The topic of this presentation is an implant surgical procedures for a socket type 2 (socket missing buccal bone) in an aesthetic area, with emphasis on modified IVAN* technique for socket preservation. IVAN* stands for inter-positional vascularised augmentation neogenesis.
Author`s guidelines for selection of appropriate surgical protocols for sockets missing buccal bone wall, protocols that are proved to be most effective, are presented. Early implant placement with GBR, prosthetic socket preservation and socket augmentation with socket sealing are shortly presented as alternatives for some cases. From author modified IVAN technique is shown step by step.
Guided Bone Regeneration of a Compromised Extraction Site
Dr. Michael Sonick shares a routine clinical challenge and demonstrates the extraction of a fractured premolar with simultaneous guided bone regeneration.
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.
Combined Augmentation Therapies in the Esthetic Zone
The esthetic zone presents a far bigger challenge than any other area of the mouth. It is the one area that a patient has the ability to really scrutinize the work that has been done and anything that does not pass muster will quickly create problems in our practices. Uncompromising treatment planning is therefore essential to ensure the long term aesthetic stability of our esthetic cases. Treatment planning involves both bone and soft tissue therapy as both are critical for the stability. This lecture will highlife the importance of different treatment options as well as show numerous new techniques that are possible to achieve the results that both our patients and practitioners are proud of.
Biologic Strategies to Enhance Clinical and Aesthetic Success in Oral Implantology
This webinar will discuss clinical strategies for treatment of the complex implant site involving bone grafting and implant placement. Our understanding of cellular pathways, and our ability to control the wound response, expands our capacity to effect better aesthetic outcomes and compress treatment time. The reduction of the inflammatory phase of tissue regeneration speeds up osseointegration, prevents crestal bone loss, maintains papillary form, increases the density of peri-implant bone and increases tissue biotype. This enhanced tissue response allows us to predictably treat even the most complex surgical cases, compress time to final reconstruction, and to maintain these favorable tissue outcomes over an extended period of time. The use of dental implants with advanced biologic features and the incorporation autologous growth factors will be demonstrated.
