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.

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

Extraction and Bone Grafting Techniques to Optimize Site Preservation Premium Member Content

Extraction and Bone Grafting Techniques to Optimize Site Preservation
Implant placement is dependent upon bone quantity and quality. 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.

Influence of Thin Mucosal Tissues on Crestal Bone Stability Around Implants With Platform Switching: A 1-year Pilot Study
The aim of this pilot study was to determine what effect thin mucosal tissues can have on crestal bone stability around implants with platform switching. Within the limitations of this pilot study it can be concluded that implants with platform switching did not preserve crestal bone better in comparison with implants with traditional implant-abutment connection if, at the time of implant placement, thin mucosal tissues were present.
