Anterior Implant placement and Tissue Augmentation

Description:
In this detailed surgical technique video, Dr. Michael Sonick outlines the keys to anterior implant placement in conjunction with hard and soft tissue augmentation. Ridge expansion, bone substitutes, PRGF and the use of connective tissue grafting for a pontic site enhancement are all discussed and demonstrated in detail.

Thx for sharing, beautiful surgery. What is your opinion about using higher healing abutments underneath the flap so as obtain even greater soft tissue augmentation? Thank you. Filipe Lopes.

I do treat smokers. The research shows pretty much the same success with smokers as with non- smokers.

however, with bone grafting procedures, I recommend that patients quit smoking one week before surgery and for at least3 weeks post surgery. In my experience heavy smokers (greater than one pack a day) do not heal as well as non-smokers.

with that said about 30% of my implant patients do smoke.

what is your philosophy of implant success with smokers? any limitations?

I must agree with Dr. Sonick.

hello, you used 3i implant diameter 3,25 or 4,00? why don't you pierce the bone before gbr?


Rodolfo the implant diagmet was 3.25. The bone was not pierced for it was very vascular. If it did not bleed I would have decorticated it. I was also concerned about hitting the implant. It could have been decorticated prior to implant placement.

I think that this is a great case presentation from Dr Sonick - as usual. I have a question though-I noticed that the implant was sunk quite a bit-it will move the implant-abutment connection further deep, are you not concerned about the marginal gap? Also, you said the insertion torque would exceed 65NcM- will it not compress the bone too much? Thanks for the video, Simon Milbauer

Simon Thanks for your comments. Inserting the implant deep is not a problem as long as there is bone on the adjacent teeth. It is the bone on adjacent teeth that determines the papilla adjacent to a single tooth implant.

As for insertion torque, it does not seem to matter. A while paper published earlier this year by Meltzer et al. reviewed implants with over 100 N-cm of insertion torque with no ill consequences.

My success rate over the past year was 98.5 % utilizing this type of implant (Tapered Certain Biomet 3i) with high insertion torques.

This lecture will describe the use of autologous onlay block bone grafting for reconstruction of moderate to severe atrophic posterior mandibular alveolar ridge. This will include a discussion of the various options to this form of grafting, such as Short implants, Lingual positioning, nerve repositioning, distraction osteogenesis, and GBR. The Mutli-Tier onlay Bone Graft Technique will be highlighted in this presentation. Additionally, a review of a recently submitted research paper of long term follow up of implants placed into autologous bone blocks harvested from the mandibular ramus, retromolar and sympheseal areas will be discussed.

Titanium Mesh and rhBMP-2 in Ridge Augmentation: Options and Limitations Premium Member Content

Titanium Mesh and rhBMP-2 in Ridge Augmentation: Options and Limitations
Titanium mesh has been used in reconstructive surgery and ridge augmentation for several years. The traditional technique involves using cancellous autogenous bone under the mesh scaffold. More recently growth factors and bone substitutes have been utilized as autograft replacements. There are several advantages to using titanium mesh for space maintenance including strength, ease of use, low cost and biocompatibility. However, the difficulty in removing the mesh has led to a search for other space maintenance scaffolds including tenting screws, dense preshaped collagen and porous high-density polyethylene. This webinar will discuss the use of rhBMP-2 for managing horizontal and vertical bone deficiencies with various scaffolds.
