The key to successful implant dentistry is the ability of the clinician to provide adequate volume and quality of bone to the recipient site. This requires a thorough and precise diagnostic evaluation utilizing bone sounding, PA films and CBCT 3D software.
Once the volume of the deficiency has been properly registered the appropriate bone grafting technique can then be selected. The desire is to utilize the least invasive and most conservative techniques needed to get the required results.
Extraction Socket Grafting, GBR, Onlay Block Grafting, Ridge Splitting and Expansion will be featured. The utilization and importance of bioactive modifiers such as PRGF and autologous fibrin membranes will be highlighted.
The products available today for Bone Augmentation including, allograft and xenograft particulate bone, various membranes, bone tacks, fixation screws, BMP-2, titanium mesh and various membranes will be clarified as to their effectiveness in each procedure.
This hands-on course will highlight the 4 most utilized bone graft procedures in clinical practice which involve the socket graft and 3 different ridge augmentation techniques.
It will teach in detail and simplify the process of site evaluation, critical anatomy, flap design, harvest techniques, suturing and the required armamentarium to perform these techniques.
All necessary materials will be made available to each attendee;
Bone models, surgical instruments, grafting materials and fixation screws.
In addition, all attendees will receive a CD of all the reviewed and covered procedures performed by Dr. Salama on the same model.
This program will cover site preparation techniques prior to and at the time of implant placement.
