Modern Bone Augmentation Techniques: An Alternative Donor Site

Description:
In this lecture, Dr. Glickman will give the participants an alternative bone block harvesting site that is in the same area as the anterior maxillary teeth, eliminating the need for a second site surgery. This also provides a site that is painless and easily accesible therefore allowing the patients to have the gold standard of bone grafting rather than settling for treatment options with a more more variable outcome.

A good question Mo. The bone is very stable as long as you have the minimum 2mm that is needed. I have also changed my technique a little in that I use the thin plates with autogenous bone chips harvested with the safe scraper. this means that you have a better vascularity of the bone which is more stable long term.

Howard; This is great stuff. Thoughts on this bone vs. other intra-oral sites when reviewing them AFTER Loading 1-2 years out? Maurice

SOrry Charles He he. come over some time Ill let you pat them

Howard, I was referring to your CATS :-).

Howard Gluckman - (6/20/2013 4:43 PM)

@ George Mcqeen. In the majority of the cases there is little or no loss of sensation of the anterior palate. THe only loss one gets is a slight tingling sensation of the incisive papillae. The majority of patients get used to this very quickly. With regards to haematoma inthe 200 or more cases we have done of this type of harvesting we have never experienced this at all. THe only time you get any bleeding is from the cutting of the palatal soft tissue with anterior releases. I have not had any issues with bone bleeds at all and all those who have done this technique since have shared the same experience. Perhaps the removal of the canines leaves a large hole in the palate which the removal of a bone block does not. Also to the best of my knowledge and in searching my anatomy books there is no anterior palatal artery that runs in the bone the only palatal aretry is the greater and lesser palatine arteries and neither is in the bone but rather runs in the palate within a canal and the nasopalatine duct. But I agree the palatal coverage is always good as it helps apply pressure to the area.

@CHUCK. Thanks for the kinds words However there is nothing dangerous if it is well treatment planned and you use the correct tools. Keep well

George McQueen - (6/17/2013 10:25 PM)

Does not a premolar to premolar flap desensitize the anterior palate at least for several months?, and when the anterior palatine bone is cut, does one not get bone bleeders? I know when removing impacted canines, I have had to deal with the need to pack the site well due to intrabony hemorrhage from the anterior palatine artery. I agree with the use of a stent or denture to hold down the tissues after such a flap...certainly hematoma can occur.

Howard, Quality work and presentation. I see you like to live dangerously :-). Thanks for sharing. Chuck.

Totally Awesome Howard!! This was a very informative, well presented, and easy easy to follow webinar. Thank you

Growth Factors; The Next Step in Achieving Ideal Regeneration
The aim of dentistry is to provide esthetics and function for our patients. Using hard and soft tissue regeneration techniques we have the ability to rebuild what has been lost to disease or trauma. Whether we are regenerating lost tissue around teeth or developing an ideal implant site, growth factors are a powerful asset that help make regenerative procedures more predictable while reducing patient morbidity. This webinar review regeneration techniques and will discuss the popular growth factors available today and demonstrate their clinical use.

Managing the Extraction Site - Optimal Preservation and Enhancement Techniques
There is rarely a day that clinicians do not have to deal with an extraction site. If implant therapy is a consideration, then bone and soft tissue quantity and quality must be factored into treatment options. The ideal opportunity for bone preservation exists at the time of tooth extraction. All too often this opportunity is lost. Extraction techniques will be demonstrated that not only preserve but augment the amount of alveolar bone. The importance of piezosurgery, atraumatic surgical technique, the use of bone grafts, resorbable membranes and growth factors will be elucidated along with soft tissue enhancement.

Gaining Horizontal and Vertical Bone with Mineralized Bone Particulate, rh-BMP2 and Resorbable Ultrasonic-Applied Rigid Barriers
The use of titanium mesh has been well described, but so has the complications of removal and exposure. Bioresorbable barriers are now available which can be molded into any desired three-dimensional form, creating a rigid and resorbable construct that is secured to to the bone using ultrasonic energy. This unique solution has been successfully used to create the proper environment for both large lateral and vertical ridge augmentations for situations previously only treated with block grafting or distraction. Dr. Cummings will share his experience as well as the key soft tissue techniques that are critical for the success of any large augmentation.

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.

Socket Gafting with the use of Autologous Bone - an Experimental Study in the Dog
In five beagle dogs, the distal roots of the third and fourth mandibular premolars were removed. The sockets in the right or the left jaw quadrant were grafted with either anorganic bovine bone or with chips of autologous bone harvested from the buccal bone plate. After 3 months of healing, biopsies of the experimental sites were sampled, prepared for buccal–lingual ground sections and examined with respect to size and composition.
