Alloplastic Bone Substitutes Around Dental Implants
The repair of osseous defects has been a goal in dentistry for many decades. Subsequently, within the last several years, there has been an emergence of a new class of materials in dentistry referred to as synthetic bone. Finding the ideal bone substitute material has been the goal of researchers for many years. In attempting to achieve this ideal material, dental practitioners have tried with varying degrees of success: autogenous and demineralized freeze-dried bone, allografts of plastic, carbon…
Atrophic Posterior Maxillan and Mandible: Alveolar Ridge Reconstruction with Mandibular Block Autografts
Autogenous bone grafts have been used for many years for alveolar ridge augmentation and are still considered to be the gold standard for jaw reconstruction. The use of these grafts with osseointegrated implants was originally discussed by Brånemark et al., who used the iliac crest as the donor site. For repair of most localized alveolar defects, however, bone grafts from the mandible offer advantages over iliac crest grafts. These include the proximity of donor and recipient sites, convenient surgical access, decreased donor site morbidity and decreased cost. This article focuses on posterior maxillary and mandibular osseous augmentation in a staged approach for implant placement. Both horizontal and vertical deficiencies are addressed with the use of symphysis and ramus buccal shelf donor block bone via case presentations.
Physical And Chemical Properties Of Commercially Available Mineralized Bone Allograft
Bone graft materials are critical to the success of dental
implants when there is a need to increase the volume of bone
in a defect. The surface properties of these graft materials will have a profound impact on the outcome of the graft procedure. The clinician has many choices of bone graft substitutes when augmenting bony deficits. Allograft bone is the most widely used class of bone graft substitutes. Within this class there are a number of different bone allografts, which are manufactured utilizing widely varying processing techniques. There also appears to be a wide range of results in the published literature across the spectrum of different bone allografts.
This in-vitro study evaluated chemical and surface
properties of five different commercially available
mineralized bone allografts.
Extraction and Bone Grafting Techniques to Optimize Site Preservation
Implant placement is dependent upon bone quantity and quality. The ideal opportunity for bone preservation exists at the time of tooth extraction. All too often this opportunity is lost.
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.
Surgical Considerations for Sinus Augmentation - Part 2
Dr. Michael Pikos continues his demonstration of the step-by-step procedures necessary to perform lateral window sinus augmentation.
Vertical Bone Augmentation: Current Concepts and Techniques
This lecture will review several approaches used for vertical bone augmentation and discuss the benefits and limitations of each. There will be special emphasis on the titanium mesh and interpositional osteotomy techniques.
Managing 3D Shape and Space in Bone Augmentation: Putty Assisted Regeneration
This presentation will demonstrate the utilization of Novabone in several different applications to include ridge preservation and sinus grafting and immediate implant placement.
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.
