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.

Amazing Presentation One problem though,,, you make it look extremely easy, I am sure it is not... Wonderful surgical skills Dr Howard

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 :-).

@ 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.

Charles Schwimer - (6/14/2013 5:12 PM)

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

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.

Esthetic Zone Reconstruction: Synergy of Hard and Soft Tissue Grafting Premium Member Content

Esthetic Zone Reconstruction: Synergy of Hard and Soft Tissue Grafting
The loss of alveolar ridge contour in the esthetic zone compromises both esthetics and function. This clinical presentation will focus on the application of both hard and soft tissue grafting in the esthetic zone implementing state of the art interactive CT diagnosis and treatment planning for optimal esthetic implant reconstruction. Emphasis will be on indications, graft and harvest site assessment, timing, and use of bioactive modifiers including BMP, PRGF and PDGF. The surgical protocol utilizing allogeneic and autogenous grafts in conjunction with connective tissue grafts, acellular dermis matrix, and related soft tissue procedures to avoid functional and esthetic pitfalls will be featured. Pre and post-grafting prosthetic workup, interactive CT graft assessment and perio prosthetic driven implant planning, stent driven implant placement, and computer milled abutment fabrication including guided surgery will be included.

Alloplastic Bone Substitutes Around Dental Implants

Alloplastic Bone Substitutes Around Dental Implants
The repair of osseous defects has been a goal in dentistry for many decades. Subsequently, within the last several years, there has been an emergence of a new class of materials in dentistry referred to as synthetic bone. Finding the ideal bone substitute material has been the goal of researchers for many years. In attempting to achieve this ideal material, dental practitioners have tried with varying degrees of success: autogenous and demineralized freeze-dried bone, allografts of plastic, carbon…
