Surgical Options and Solutions in Maxillary Ridge Augmentation: Advantages of Combined Therapy

Description:
This surgical video presentation will demonstrate the treatment of two advanced cases of maxillary deficiency. The emphasis of this presentation will be on combining several state-of-the-art surgical augmentation therapies to optimize dimensional increases in the deficient ridges in the maxilla in preparation of implant therapy. The two cases presented, of severe and moderate bone defects, in the Anterior Maxilla, the bone were reconstructed by using the anatomy (sub-nasal elevation), and several surgical techniques (bone augmentation, soft tissue manipulation and implant placement) in a systematic team oriented protocol (Surgeon, Restorative Dentist and Lab) to get the best esthetic results.

Maurice
Sorry for the delay answer ,during the last decay I used the combination of p-PRP covered with p-PPP (platelets poor plasma) and my clinical experience with prp/ppp (yet not in vitro research), is very good and predictable. Nevertheless, in the search for the best "progenitor cells releaser" I've started lately to use concentrated Bone Marrow Aspirate (BMA) combined with PPP cover, with promising results. My clinical experience with BMP2 is limited (only few cases) but obviously, it does not imply excluding this option as part of the therapy.
Although there is evidence that the L-PRF membranes enable better sustained release of the growth factor and the matrix protein than the P-PRP gel membranes, the various platelets poor plasma (p-PRP and p-PPP) I am using, encompass very different biological characteristics. On top of that, an accurate definition and characterization of the different families of products is a key issue for a better understanding and comparison of the reported clinical effects of these surgical adjutants.

Dr. Devorah Schwartz-Arad; Outstanding clinical presentation. Well described with CBCT and highlighted in your treatment options displayed. I have moved from PRP to PRGF/PRF in the last 12 years and have initiated my experience with BMP-2 in similar cases. Have you any experience with these biological agents? thanks Dr. Salama

Dear Alaa,
It is very important to improve the available bone and soft tissue -prior to implant placement, and only than fabricate the prosthesis, to rehabilitate the missing teeth and if still needed also the soft tissue. This allows better implant anchorage, better long-term success and easier oral-hygiene care. Yet, in cases when the available bone is suitable for implant placement, or in cases with high smile line, one might prefer the pink prosthetic border as superior as possible, for aesthetic outcome.

Thank you Dr. Shwartz for the great works. Just want to post few suggestions. PPP and PRP is an excellent way obtain regeneration result. However, we can use the much simpler BMPs technique with Infused Bone Graft from Metronics. That way we reduced the donor site healing and achieve similar or even better result. On the first case, We should restored with individual tooth. In the second case, connective tissue graft can be avoided with the lateral incisor cantilever with the cental incisor, contact point moved lower toward the bone crest, and canine restored by single crown. This will allow for the papilla to regenerate since the we lower the distance from interproximal contact to bone crest less than 6mm (according to Glickman). We have seen this so many times in the last 14 years of my practices. However, these are great cases with great result. Thank you for sharing with us.

Alaa YASSIN - (9/12/2013 11:57 PM)

Thank you Dr. Shwartz for these nice cases. About the first case, and as we get to the final point with a screw retained prosthesis with pink ceramic restoring the gingiva, was it a good alternative treatment plan to place implants at the available bone and then to fabricate a partial hybrid prosthesis, to rehabilitate the gingival missing tissue as well as the lip support? Thank you. Alaa

Greate work. .I saw this presentation in Puria hospital and today I enjoyed it twice

The "Robin Hood" Approach to Tissue Engineering
Autogenous tissue is still a gold standard for augmentation procedures. There are great sources of patient’s own tissue, often in adjacent areas, that can be utilized. The soft tissue can be moved, flipped, rolled, pediculated - in order to take from the rich sites and give to the poor ones. A novel approach for the wound closure after ridge augmentation and/or implant placement in lateral maxilla will be presented.

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.

Site Preparation & Osseodensification in Bone Management
Today's implant arena involves not only the understanding of procedures but also the science behind wound healing. Often new technologies and instrumentation evolves that have a significant impact on what we are able to do clinically. Piezosurgical devices, periotomes, osteotomes, hydraulic sinus devices, neurosurgical drills, and the "PET" (Partial Extraction Therapies) system are just a short list of those that have made surgery more efficient and less traumatic for our patients. Osseodensification is another concept that can be added to this long list. This lecture will speak about new age bone management concepts and how these technologies may be able to assist us. Potential issues and focus on use will be touched upon as well.

Bone Augmentation & Vascular Enhancement Concepts: It’s Time to Make it Simple!
The purpose of this presentation is to make the participant think biology first and not mechanic first. A biological thinking will dramatically simplify vertical and/or horizontal bone augmentation procedures. We will also be introducing a new approach for the simplification of soft tissue handling: the Soft Brushing Technique, that will allow the coronal advancement of both buccal and lingual flaps, but also the palatal flap without the need for periosteal releasing incisions.

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.

Seibert Class III apicocoronal and buccolingual alveolar ridge defects with associated gingival mucosal atrophy and absence of interdental papillae are common in edentulous areas within the anterior esthetic zone of the maxilla. Normal emergence profiles, critical to achieving esthetic restorations, require restoration of normal hard and soft tissue morphology, including re-establishment of adjacent interdental papillae.

A Novel Strategy for Bone Integration and Regeneration: Case Studies
Ultraviolet light treatment of dental implants immediately prior to placement, or photofunctionalization, is a novel clinical tool with the potential to improve implant therapy. Photofunctionalization improves the surface properties of titanium surfaces by removing hydrocarbons, regenerating hydrophilicity, and optimizing electrostatic properties. We photofunctionalizated dental implants and titanium mesh (Ti mesh) in two complex clinical cases requiring simultaneous guided bone regeneration, sinus elevation, immediate implant placement into the extraction socket, and esthetic consideration
