The Science and Technology Supporting Graft Material Selection

Description:
A wide variety of grafting materials is currently available. Understanding the right indications and the possible limitations of certain materials can be challenging. The main objective of this course is to provide guidelines for selection of the adequate materials to be used for specific indications in order to maximize treatment predictability.

Hector, Osbert, Nick, James, Andy, Felipe, Giuseppe, Henry and Hector; thank you for your kind and constructive comments. I'm glad that you all enjoyed this short presentation.

Kenneth; excellent question. Alloderm (and Alloderm GBR) or other tissue-derived membranes (CopiOs, CopiOs Extend, Pericardium) are considered to be long-lasting absorbable membranes and very adequate for GBR techniques. They work better with mineralized allografts. They have many advantages over non-absorbable membranes (improved handling, less post-op complications). In terms of "barrier effect", they are your closest option to non-absorbable membranes.

Maurice; the future is bright for Biologics. Osteoinduction and pro-angiogenic factors for sure are welcome but they still lack osteoconductivity, so they depend on a good scaffold or tenting device. We still need to find the ideal carrier to prevent the biologic material from being washed out too quickly or the carrier blocking osteoconduction. Once we find the perfect balance, the game will change for sure.

Maximizing Aesthetics on Adjacent Implants and Full Arch Reconstructions - Part 2 of 2 Premium Member Content

Maximizing Aesthetics on Adjacent Implants and Full Arch Reconstructions - Part 2 of 2
The beauty in implant dentistry is that every case is an individual challenge. An ideal implant treatment uses procedures , techniques, materials and technologies that leads fast and on the shortest way to a maximally aesthetic result. This is our goal, in every clinical case, from single tooth replacement to full arch reconstructions.

Esthetic Tissue Reconstruction Around Implants - Part 1 of 2 Premium Member Content

Esthetic Tissue Reconstruction Around Implants - Part 1 of 2
Esthetics in implant-supported restorations is an important clinical objective in contemporary dentistry. Understanding the biological behavior of hard and soft tissues following tooth extraction is the first step to anticipate the physiological tissue remodeling and its consequences. Our objective in these 2 sequencial lectures was to provide straightforward decision trees related to several clinical scenarios observed in routine clinical practice. The 3 fundamental pillars for peri-implant excellence are: restorative-driven implant position, hard and soft tissue reconstruction using different biomaterials and grafts, and prosthetic management. Using this philosophical approach seems to provide esthetic and stable results over time irrespective of the initial clinical condition.

Advanced Bone Grafting Techniques: Part 2 - Autogenous Bone Blocks in the Reconstruction of the Atrophic Maxillary Ridge Premium Member Content

Advanced Bone Grafting Techniques: Part 2 - Autogenous Bone Blocks in the Reconstruction of the Atrophic Maxillary Ridge
This lecture will describe the use of autologous onlay block bone grafting for reconstruction of moderate to severe atrophic maxillary alveolar ridge. This will include a discussion of the various options to this form of grafting, such as short implants, maxillary sinus augmentation, sub-nasal elevation procedure, connective tissue grafting and soft tissue manipulation, Le-Fort I down fracture/osteotomy and the use of progenitor cells: bone marrow aspirating concentrated. 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.

Manejo Integral de Maloclusion Clase III en Adulto, con Requerimientos Periodontales y Protesicos; Reporte de un caso clinico
En nuestra clinica observamos un aumento de pacientes adultos con problemas esqueletales, compromiso periodontal y necesidades protesicas. Debemos recurrir a la interconsulta con el periodoncista, protesista y cirujano maxilofacial, para la correccion del caso, prestando especial atencion al componente dentario, esqueletal y los tejidos blandos faciales del paciente. La cirugia ortognatica, que generalmente la realizamos luego de una preparacion ortodoncica, permite corregir discrepancias en el adulto y restaurar la funcion y estetica en los tres planos del espacio. Realizada la correccion oclusal, procedemos a sustituir dientes ausentes, mediante implantes y protesis fijas. El Periodoncista, mantiene un control constante de la salud de los tejidos de soporte, durante todas las fases de la terapia multidisciplinaria.

Long-Term Block Graft Stability in Thin Periodontal Biotype Patients - A Clinical and Tomographic Study
Autogenous block grafting seems to be a predictable treatment modality to reconstruct alveolar ridge defects in the long term. A thin periodontal biotype did not seem to affect the volume of transplanted bone for the population studied.

Reconstruction of a Single-Tooth Traumatic Defect in the Anterior Maxilla Using the Khoury Bone Plate Graft

Reconstruction of a Single-Tooth Traumatic Defect in the Anterior Maxilla Using the Khoury Bone Plate Graft
Trauma to teeth and the dentoalveolar process may result in a ridge defect that precludes straightforward implant therapy of the patient. Typically bone and soft tissue augmentation of the area would first be needed to adequately prepare the tissues for the implant and its restoration..Grafting of the site is substantially more difficult in cases where the ridge also lacks adequate height, and techniques to recreate a bony envelope to apply guided bone regeneration may be required. Moreover, defects in the anterior aesthetic zone that require both bone and soft tissue grafting and a restoration that harmonizes the adjacent pink and white aesthetics may be an even more significant challenge to the restorative team. Hereafter a case of trauma to an anterior maxillary tooth that saw destruction of the ridge is presented, with the defect reconstructed to accommodate a functional and aesthetically pleasing implant supported restoration.
