3D Bone Ridge Augmentation; What Are The Limits? Premium Member Content

3D Bone Ridge Augmentation; What Are The Limits?
This lecture will underline some of the critical aspects to achieve success in bone augmentation procedures is predictable basis. Moreover, the importance of digital planning to understand the anatomical challenges and anticipate the final clinical outcome will also be highlighted. One pillar of the presentation will be the introduction of new biomaterials and strategies to favor a faster surgery with less complications. The presenter will also discuss his understanding of what lay before us in terms of the next steps in a biological era of regeneration.

From Oral to Facial:Impact of Oral Surgery on Facial Esthetics - Part 2 of 2 Premium Member Content

From Oral to Facial:Impact of Oral Surgery on Facial Esthetics - Part 2 of 2
The treatment concept in patients with edentulous maxilla will be discussed: Phase A: Augmentation procedures and implant placement (part I). Phase B: Le Fort I maxillary osteotomy for the correction of acquired class III (part II of the lecture). Clinical cases of moderate to severe edentulous maxillary atrophy are described: A combination of sub-nasal procedure, sinus elevation procedure and intra-oral autogenous bone blocks were used for ridge augmentation simultaneously with dental implant placement combined with scaffold mixed with platelets-rich-plasma (PRP) or bone-marrow aspirate (BMA) and covered with platelets-poor-plasma (PPP) as a biological membrane.

CadCam Customized 3D-Printed Subperiosteal Implant
The “classical” subperiosteal implant does not enjoy a good reputation; the causes of failure were myriad, as evidenced in the literature. When considering the future of implants, it appears justified to reconsider the old concepts in light of the availability of contemporary technologies, such as computer-aided design, softwares and programs design, virtual stress– strain testing, and 3D printing of titanium alloy. With the employment of these modern technologies, the concept of a “high-tech” subperiosteal implant has gradually emerged. This new era of a “high-tech” customized 3D printed subperiosteal implant leads us to consider this technique a valuable treatment option for atrophic jaws, avoiding more invasive procedures and giving the possibility of immediate loading, improving the patient’s quality of life.

Modified IVAN Technique: Long-Term Follow-Up of 20 Cases Over 2 to 11 Years

Modified IVAN Technique: Long-Term Follow-Up of 20 Cases Over 2 to 11 Years
When natural teeth fail, frequently there is a loss of hard and soft tissue. This may complicate subsequent dental implant placement by creating insufficient bone to house the implant. This also occurs when the tooth has been missing for an extended period, especially in the premaxilla, where the bone is less dense and often lacks sufficient volume of facial bone. Site reconstruction to accommodate implant placement often requires both hard and soft tissue augmentation. The modified interpositional vascularized augmentation neogenesis (mIVAN) technique achieves the desired treatment goals in both delayed and immediate placement scenarios. The technique will be discussed as well as the long-term follow-up on 20 cases.

The Modified IVAN Technique: Hard and Soft Tissue Augmentation at Extraction for Delayed Implant Placement

The Modified IVAN Technique: Hard and Soft Tissue Augmentation at Extraction for Delayed Implant Placement
Failure of a natural tooth may not permit placement of an implant at the time of extraction due to insufficiency in available bone to house the implant. Reconstruction of the extraction socket frequently involves both hard and soft tissue augmentation to provide a site that can house the implant and ridge contours that mimic the adjacent natural anatomy. This situation becomes more problematic in the maxillary anterior due to the anatomy and the lower density of the bone of the premaxilla. The solution is the interpositional vascularized augmentation neogenesis (IVAN), which consists of hard tissue grafts, various barrier membranes, and closure with the pediculated connective tissue graft (PCTG). The modified IVAN (mIVAN) technique achieves the necessary goals and may be used in both delayed and immediate placement situations.

Maintenance of Alveolar Ridge Dimensions Utilizing an Extracted Tooth Dentin Particulate Autograft and Platelet-Rich Fibrin: A Retrospective Radiographic Cone-Beam Computed Tomography Study

Maintenance of Alveolar Ridge Dimensions Utilizing an Extracted Tooth Dentin Particulate Autograft and Platelet-Rich Fibrin: A Retrospective Radiographic Cone-Beam Computed Tomography Study
This study utilized radiographic comparative analysis in order to evaluate dimensional ridge changes four months after tooth extraction and immediate grafting with mineralized dentin particulate autograft and chopped platelet-rich fibrin. Fifty-eight extraction sockets with up to 2mm of missing buccal bone in the coronal aspect compared to the lingual bone were included. Graft material was covered with either a platelet-rich fibrin membrane or collagen sponge with no effort to achieve primary closure.

With the employment of these modern technologies, the concept of a “high-tech” subperiosteal implant has gradually emerged. Biological design of subperiosteal implant is mandatory for the success of the treatment, guidelines on architectural changes, topological optimization, and biofunctionalization will be explained. This new era of a “high-tech” customized 3D printed subperiosteal implant leads us to consider this technique s a valuable treatment option for atrophic jaws, avoiding more invasive procedures and giving the possibility of immediate loading, improving the patient’s quality of life.

Modern Flap Management in Bone Augmentation Premium Member Content

Modern Flap Management in Bone Augmentation
What does it mean “Modern”? Less traumatic? More predictable? More biology? Less incisions? Let’s see what modern means from a biological and from a surgical standpoint. How can we achieve a full passive closure from the flaps without damaging the blood supply? Can we take care of the oxidative stress? Can PRF help us in these matters? Surgically, the management of anatomical elements such as the mylo-hyoid muscle and the mental foramen will be discussed and a simplification protocol will also be presented. No doubt, “modern” flap management raises a lot of questions!
