Innovative Technique for Ridge Augmentation Using SonicWeld RX Rigid Resorbable Barrier System - Part 3 of 5

Description:
In this third of a 5 part series, Dr. Gerhard Iglhaut describes the science as well as the step-by-step techniques for utilizing an innovative new resorbable rigid membrane and fixation system for ridge augmentation. This approach utilizes the Resorb-X polymer as a totally new method of craniomaxillofacial applications which consists of pure poly D, L-lactic acid (PDLLA) to isolate an osseous defect for guided bone regeneration (GBR). The advantages result from achieving an extremely stable and space preserving membrane for GBR.

Excelent presentation

Matt Hauck - (10/26/2011 12:57 PM)

For course information, see the KLS Martin Group page on Dental XP - Dr. Iglhaut will be lecturing and directing a hands on course in January at the USC International Symposium, as well as many courses in Germany!

Great stuff! Worthwhile.

See part 5 for vertical augmentation technique - also for more on the interaction of bone and sonicwelding process reference: Pilling E, Mai R, Theissig F, et al: An experimental in vivo analysis of the resorption to ultrasound activated pins (Sonicweld) and standard biodegradable screws (ResorbX) in sheep.

Jay; Vibrations not heat. I have a featured video on XP using this technique and it works very well.
regards Dr. Salama

Jay Lutsky - (2/16/2011 10:45 AM)

Very interesting technique. Any concerns related to ultrasonic heat that is generated and, if so, how can we minimize this complication?

Wleed Haq - (12/23/2010 3:47 PM)

Looking forward to seeing some vertical augmentation cases using this technique

Anterior maxillary alveolar bone deficiency, can prevent implant placement for fixed rehabilitation and jeopardize the esthetic outcome. Clinical case of severe atrophy of anterior maxilla, due to loss of implants, is described: A combination of sub-nasal procedure and intra-oral autologous onlay bone graft were used for ridge augmentation and dental implant placement in steps procedure, combined with Bio-Oss saturated in Platelets Rich Plasma (PRP) and covered with platelets-poor-plasma (PPP) as a "biological membrane".

Current Concepts in Bioactivity and Regeneration Premium Member Content

Current Concepts in Bioactivity and Regeneration
An injury to the tissue instantly stimulates the healing process. To heal properly, we need three elements: scaffolds, cells and growth factors. If one of these three elements are missing there will be no tissue regeneration. Plasma rich in growth factors (Endoret® (PRGF®) technology, enables clinicians to apply autologous growth factors and a fibrin scaffold in a simple, safe and effective method. The Endoret® (PRGF®) stimulates the tissue-building cells to achieve regeneration. An optimal alveolar regeneration is characterized by fast haemostasis, adequate inflammation, stem cell mobilization and differentiation, rapid soft tissue closure of the socket and correct tissue regeneration. The adequate management of the extraction socket will determine the final outcome of implant-supported restorations.

Alternative & New Tendencies for Alveolar Reconstruction in Modern Implant Dentistry
Knowledge of bone biology and physiology are crucial for successful dento-alveolar reconstruction. The presentation will review the natural healing process of the bone and the sequence of events needed for proper regeneration. This process will then be discussed and compare with the present materials and technologies available in the market including alloplastics and allogenic materials. The role of the Stem Cells and rh-BMP2 will be exposed as part of these new trends in alveolar reconstruction for modern implant dentistry. Multiple cases will be presented demonstrating the versatility and outcomes in different clinical situations based on biological, bio-mechanics, and implant aesthetic needs.

Ridge Expansion, GBR & Meshes: Decision Making in Clinical Practice
A variety of bone augmentation procedures are currently available at use to the clinician. Techniques of variable complexity can essentially yield favorable results. The choice of technique to utilize however, is often based on defect site presentation and operator comfort level. This presentation will focus on the use of ridge expansion, guided bone regeneration (GBR), and titanium mesh. Merits and indications of each technique will be discussed, and clinical cases will be presented that showcase the decision making process involved in treatment planning.

A Novel Strategy for Bone Integration and Regeneration: Case Studies
Ultraviolet light treatment of dental implants immediately prior to placement, or photofunctionalization, is a novel clinical tool with the potential to improve implant therapy. Photofunctionalization improves the surface properties of titanium surfaces by removing hydrocarbons, regenerating hydrophilicity, and optimizing electrostatic properties. We photofunctionalizated dental implants and titanium mesh (Ti mesh) in two complex clinical cases requiring simultaneous guided bone regeneration, sinus elevation, immediate implant placement into the extraction socket, and esthetic consideration
