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.

Bi-Directional Augmentation of Double-Arched Posterior Maxillary Vertical Defects
Double-arched posterior maxillary defects present a unique challenge requiring special considerations for implant replacement. This deformity is characterized by vertical bone loss from both the sinus aspect as well as the ridge. In this video, Dr. H. Ryan Kazemi demonstrates a bi-directional vertical bone augmentation technique to develop sites that not only support the implants but also improve tissue harmony for enhanced aesthetics, function, and longevity.

Advanced Bone Grafting Techniques: Part 1 - Autogenous Bone Blocks in the Reconstruction of the Atrophic Mandibular Ridge Premium Member Content

Advanced Bone Grafting Techniques: Part 1 - Autogenous Bone Blocks in the Reconstruction of the Atrophic Mandibular Ridge
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 re-positioning, 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. A description of surgical donor harvest sites in the mandible will also be performed as well as post op healing of these sites. Additional time will be spent reviewing causes of failure with bone blocks and implants placed into these sites.

Retrospective Evaluation of Crestal Bone Changes Around Implants With Reduced Abutment Diameter Placed Non-Submerged and at Subcrestal Positions: The Effect of Bone Grafting at Implant Placement
One method to measure the success of dental implant treatment is to evaluate marginal peri-implant bone-level changes and stability over time. The location of the fixture–abutment interface (FAI) can be of major importance when the goal is to construct esthetic restorations. In these situations the FAI is often placed in a more apical position to create an ideal emergence profile for the prosthetic construction. However, several animal studies have reported that placement of the FAI in a subcrestal position may result in peri-implant marginal bone loss. The aim of the present study is to evaluate the effect of bone grafting of the defect between the bone crest and the coronal aspect of the implant for implants with reduced abutment diameters placed non-submerged and in subcrestal positions.

Guided Bone Regeneration Using a Titanium Membrane at Implant Placement: A Case Report and Literature Discussion

Guided Bone Regeneration Using a Titanium Membrane at Implant Placement: A Case Report and Literature Discussion
Reconstruction of the oral supporting tissues lost by disease or trauma is essential to tooth replacement with dental implant therapy. This treatment requires evidence based augmentative procedures combined with up-to-date and current techniques. Guided bone regeneration (GBR) aims to initialize this process of alveolar ridge reconstruction by utilizing biologically active and supportive materials best coupled to the body’s healing processes. The use of nonresorbable, titanium membranes can achieve GBR by ensuring graft stability and space maintenance so as to ensure optimal neovascularization. Hereafter is a case report of a ridge defect reconstructed at implant placement, with the rationale and current, evidence-based literature discussed.
