Human Histologic Evaluation of Anorganic Bovine Bone Mineral Combined with Recombinant Human Platelet-Derived Growth Factor BB in Maxillary Sinus Augmentation: Case Series Study
The objective of this study was to examine the potential for improved bone regenerative outcomes in maxillary sinus augmentation procedures using platelet-derived growth factor BB and anorganic bovine bone mineral.
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…
Management of The Critical Size Defect; New Age Tools and Techniques
This presentation highlights the placement of 2 implants in a large 3D Vertical & Horizontal defect in the anterior maxilla. The defect is treated by utilizing a mix of autogenous bone harvested using Auto-bone collector and cortical-cancellous particulate Allograft. The mix is then secured by a customized 3D pre-formed titanium membrane followed by "labial contour" augmentation of the defect which is then secured by a rigid absorbable collagen membrane to create and maintain space. This will protect the graft and help stabilize the blood clot during the critical healing time. This membrane is fixed by bone tacks for stability. The final results showing good healing of the soft and hard tissues is displayed.
Implant Therapy and Esthetic Considerations - Extraction and Guided Bone and Soft Tissue Augmentation - Part 1 of 6
Dr. Maurice Salama describes the step-by-step surgical techniques required to ensure successful Guided bone as well as soft tissue enhancement of a deficient extraction site.
The Ramus Bone Block Harvest - Technique and Guidelines
An in depth review of the clinical management of the Ramus Bone Block is described in great detail. This important autogenous donor site is reviewed from an anatomical and clinical technique perspective.
BMP, PRP, PRGF and PRF; At the Edge of Regenerative Surgery
Biological modifiers and growth factors are substances that the body produces naturally in response to injury or disease. The use of these substances in regenerative procedures has made hard and soft tissue regeneration more predictable while accelerating healing and decreasing patient morbidity.
This webinar will review the wound healing process and the role that growth factors play in regeneration. BMP, PRP, PRF and PRGF will be reviewed and their clinical applications will be demonstrated. At the end of this webinar the participant will have a good understanding of the differences between these biological modifiers and their benefits.
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.
SGFBR (Screw Guided Fast Bone Regeneration) Horizontal & Vertical Bone Augmentation of the Atrophic Mandible
This presentation will highlight a less invasive surgical option to autogenous block transplantation and has displayed a very high success rate.
