S.M.A.R.T. Minimally Invasive Bone Grafting

Description:
Introduction to the S.M.A.R.T. TM Minimally Invasive Bone Grafting Technique is a novel minimally invasive bone grafting technique developed by Dr. Ernesto Lee. It provides superior outcomes with less pain, less swelling and fewer complications than traditional bone grafting procedures. Only a small incision is required, with no flap elevation, no tenting screws and no membranes. Complex, high-risk scenarios can now be treated with minimal risk of complications. The S.M.A.R.T. TM method represents a disruptive technology that will dramatically impact the future of bone grafting

Thinking out of the box is always attractive! What if you place the graft without any growth factors? Or maybe mixing xeno with allograft or autologeous bone.Thank you for the inspired presentation.

Michael Maroon - (8/3/2018 7:20 PM)

Excellent presentation and descriptions. Thank you.

Ernesto Lee - (7/31/2018 7:42 AM)

In answer to the growth factor question, the original study and most of my cases have been performed with PDGF. We have however, groups working in areas of the world where PDGF is not available. There is clinical evidence that Emdogain will work, and anectotal evidence that L-PRF may work as well. Regards.

Thank you all for your kind comments and sorry for the delayed response. I just recently became aware that this was featured on Dental XP.

Thanks for the excellent presentation, Dr. Lee. What growth factors are you mixing with Bio-Oss? What exactly is your graft mixture made up of?

Outstanding presentation, Ernesto! I really enjoyed this. Thank you for sharing your knowledge.

Just simply phenomenal Dr. LEE!

Ernesto- A remarkable presentation and review of the literature on our current understanding of tissue response in the aesthetic zone. The minimal invasive techniques has become my preferred approach in selected cases previously treated with open flap / block or GBR. This is a great contribution to our field. Thank you

"The Soft Block": Treating Severe Recessions Around Dental Implants Premium Member Content

"The Soft Block": Treating Severe Recessions Around Dental Implants
Implants have been one of the major breakthroughs in dentistry. Tissue collapse around dental implants is our number one enemy as it gives rise to serious problems that go from inflammation, through many times chronic infection, all the way down to severe recession, seriously compromising not only esthetics, but also function and our patients well being. Strategies have been developed to help clinicians to try to avoid collapse. Among the most important are procedures such as: grafting the gap; GBR with several biomaterials and barriers; flapless approaches; immediate implant placement after tooth removal with provisionalization using CAD-CAM & 3D technologies and ultimately PET strategies also combined or not with immediate load

Plastic-Esthetic Periodontal and Implant Surgery: A Microsurgical Approach - Part 2 Premium Member Content

Plastic-Esthetic Periodontal and Implant Surgery: A Microsurgical Approach - Part 2
This 2 part presentation is a comprehensive overview of the principles, indications, and clinical techniques of plastic-esthetic periodontal and implant microsurgery, focusing especially on minimal soft tissue trauma and maximally perfect wound closure. Microsurgery provides clinically relevant advantages over conventional macro-surgical concepts for regenerative and plastic-esthetic periodontal surgery, especially in the all-important esthetic zone. The microsurgical principles and procedures presented will described using high resolution multimedia.

Hard and Soft Tissue Augmentation: Optimizing Esthetic Results for the Restorative Dentist
Contemporary patient expectations have made esthetics a major requisite of all treatment plans, especially in situations where there is a high smile line. Although new restorative materials have highly improved predictability and esthetic outcomes, soft and hard tissue management play a fundamental role when working in esthetic areas. To achieve ideal esthetics, preservation of the natural soft and hard tissue architecture is a primary clinical objective. These new proposed techniques illustrate the importance of pre-prosthetic soft and hard tissue management when working in highly esthetic compromised areas.

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.

Laser Assisted Gingival Tissue Procedures

Laser Assisted Gingival Tissue Procedures
Soft tissue lasers are increasing in popularity among clinicians in part due to their potential value in preprosthetic gingival procedures. The ability of soft tissue lasers to control moisture and facilitate hemostasis appears particularly promising for clinicians excising gingival tissues, performing esthetic crown lengthening, and using resective techniques for gingival troughing—and these applications will grow as practitioners become more familiar with such technologies. This presentation highlights…

Esthetic Correction of Gingival Recession Using a Modified Tunnel Technique and an Acellular Dermal Connective Tissue Allograft

Esthetic Correction of Gingival Recession Using a Modified Tunnel Technique and an Acellular Dermal Connective Tissue Allograft
Esthetic correction of gingival recession is an important goal of periodontal therapy. This article describes a surgical technique that combines a modified tunnel technique and an acellular dermal connective tissue allograft. With the aid of vertical incisions, a tunnel is created under the buccal mucosa of the affected tooth. These incisions enable easy access for graft placement and create mobility for gingival coronal positioning. The use of an accelular dermal connective tissue allograft eliminates the need for a surgical palatal donor site. This minimizes post-surgical complications.
