Titanium Mesh and it's Role in Bone Augmentation; A Clinical Review

Description:
Different surgical procedures have been proposed in reconstruction of deficient alveolar ridges for placing dental implants in optimum prosthetic and esthetic position. In all procedures it is important to provide optimum stability for space maintenance three dimentionally and achieving adequate reconstruction of bone. Cell-occlusive membranes showed very good results obtaining great quantity of regenerated bone. However, they have inconveniences such as low stiffness for maintaining the contour of the regenerated sites, and a high risk of infection after wound dehiscence and barrier exposure especially in non-resorbables. Titanium mesh is one of the alternatives in this field which not only it stabilize the graft materials but also protects the area from mechanical loads. The improved stiffness using Ti-mesh compared with cell-occlusive membranes permits to obtain predictable results in both lateral and vertical bone augmentation. One of the inconveniences of titanium mesh which has been reported is the exposure of it but on the other hand the benefit in comparison to non resorbable membranes is that there is no need for removal and the risk of infection is very low. In this lecture different cases will be presented and clinical points to be considered in using titanium mesh will be highlighted.

Dear Arwa, exposure in 2 weeks after Ti mesh augmentations can have many etiologies such as : tension in flap, not achieveing a connective tissue to connective tissue attachments at the border of the flaps, and sharpnedges of meshbadjacent to he marging of the flap. You can follow your patient and checknevery 2-: weeks. Ask the patient to rinse the area and keep it clean but some part of superficial graft material will resorb due to exposure. Regards

Hi, Omid. I had titanium mesh exposure and here is a summary of the case case history: severe periodontal loss around the upper maxillary central incisors case management: extraction of #18 and #19 #18 has buccal wall defect extending to the apex after soft tissue healing (8 weeks), bone augmentation with titanium mesh was performed to max. anterior area. graft material: allograft Platelet rich fibrin was also applied to the area Complication: mesh exposure on the palatal side of the flap, no infection. how to manage the case? now it's 2-week follow-up

Hi Mohammad Thanks for the question I usually prescribe 0.12% CHX but also CHX /NaF Gels by TePe which patient can apply it exactly at the area of exposure

Omid Moghaddas - (12/5/2015 2:56 PM)

Thanks Howard. Omar ,there are many articles available ,these are two of them : Management of the exposure of e-PTFE membranes in guided bone regeneration. Verardi S, et al. Pract Proced Aesthet Dent. 2007 Management of d-PTFE membrane exposure for having final clinical success. Maridati PC, et al. J Oral Implantol. 2015

Great Presentation Omid. Thank you

omar mohamed - (12/4/2015 4:17 AM)

Are there any articles or references explaining management of membrane exposure?

tahere pourseyediyan - (8/12/2015 3:19 AM)

Thanks for excellent presentation

mohammad jahri - (7/9/2014 11:13 AM)

HI omid, thanks for the nice presentation. my question is what kind of chlorhexidine oral rinse instruction do you give to your patient w/ timesh exposure (specifically on the area of the exposure)?

omid moghaddas - (12/10/2012 1:09 PM)

Dear colin.my screw systems are from jeil company and biohorizon,most of the time i use macro meshes but in cases with thin biotypes or when i augment soft tissue simultaneously i prefer to use micro meshes.in the exposures i instruct my patient to rinse the area with chlorhexidine and i wont remove the mesh .in the cases which i use ti meshes, usually i do a little overfilling of the defect with bone grafts to prevent volume loss in the case of exposure.

Growth Factors; The Next Step in Achieving Ideal Regeneration
The aim of dentistry is to provide esthetics and function for our patients. Using hard and soft tissue regeneration techniques we have the ability to rebuild what has been lost to disease or trauma. Whether we are regenerating lost tissue around teeth or developing an ideal implant site, growth factors are a powerful asset that help make regenerative procedures more predictable while reducing patient morbidity. This webinar review regeneration techniques and will discuss the popular growth factors available today and demonstrate their clinical use.

Managing Large Odontogenic Cysts; Decompression or Marsupialization Technique Part 2 of 2
Decompression and marsupialization are techniques used to reduce size of large odontogenic jaw cysts, hence making its complete removal and bone regeneration simpler, safer, and more predictable. In this video, Dr. H. Ryan Kazemi demonstrates a simple technique for decompression or marsupialization and provides a brief review of its application in management of odontogenic cysts

Is There One or More Reasons to Optimize the PRF & PRP Protocols? Future Trends in Dentistry, Orthopedics and Facial Aesthetics
The “Advanced” PRF (A-PRF) and “Injectable” PRF (I-PRF) protocols were designed with this new concept. Indications are numerous in all medical fields where we need regeneration: bone, cartilage, skin etc... However, the use of growth factors is not a guarantee of long term stability, as they are active only at the beginning of the process. Numerous rules of tissue engineering have to be applied to maintain the regenerated bone through an adequate blood supply: this lecture is an enlightenment on the biological and mechanical conditions for long term stability of the bone: “grafted bone” or “bone around implants”.

Interpositional Bone Grafts to Treat the Posterior Atrophic Mandible Premium Member Content

Interpositional Bone Grafts to Treat the Posterior Atrophic Mandible
This presentation analyzes the interpositional bone graft or inlay technique, discussing the reconstructive surgical approach. Horizontal osteotomy with the interposition of bone in the form of a “sandwich” involves raising a coronal osteotomized segment of the mandible, which is still attached to the lingual periosteum, and interpositioning a block bone graft. This technique guarantees a dual vascular supply to the inlay graft from the lingual periosteum and from the residual bone; it also allows optimum use of the native basal bone, which should be less prone to resorption. The advantages and disadvantages of the inlay technique are compared with other commonly used augmentation techniques in the management of posterior mandibular atrophies.

Alloplastic Bone Substitutes Around Dental Implants
The repair of osseous defects has been a goal in dentistry for many decades. Subsequently, within the last several years, there has been an emergence of a new class of materials in dentistry referred to as synthetic bone. Finding the ideal bone substitute material has been the goal of researchers for many years. In attempting to achieve this ideal material, dental practitioners have tried with varying degrees of success: autogenous and demineralized freeze-dried bone, allografts of plastic, carbon…

Long Term Follow-Up of Dental Implants Placed in Autologous Onlay Bone Graft

Long Term Follow-Up of Dental Implants Placed in Autologous Onlay Bone Graft
The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of autologous intraoral onlay bone grafting (OBG) in correlation with long-term survival rates of dental implants placed in the augmented bone. A retrospective study was conducted on 214 patients who received a total of 633 dental implants placed in 224 autologous intraoral block OBG augmentations, combined with Bio-Oss – mixed with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and covered by platelet-poor plasma (PPP) – as scaffold, with a follow-up time up to 137 months. We suggest that augmentation of severely atrophied jaw bone through the placement of horizontal and/or vertical intraoral OBGs in combination with Bio-Oss saturated with PRP and covered by PPP should be considered a reliable, safe, and very effective surgical technique for obtaining high bone graft survival rate and high long-term implant survival rate.
