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

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.

Complete Management of the Implant Site: From Simple Cases to Complex Situations
The health and the structure of the peri-implant tissue is vital for a long term prognosis of aesthetic and functional dental treatments. The prevalence of peri-implant diseases and recessions is a problem that must be overcome by a perfect treatment planning, along with a step-by-step design of the future restorations. When the clinician places an implant, he must consider the 3D positioning regarding the hard and soft tissue. When one decide to restore an implant, he must be aware of the gingival volume and it’s position. In this presentation, we want to show fully documented cases, from bone grafting, soft tissue enhancement, to final restorations.

Immediate Dentoalveolar Restoration - Labial Contour Grafting at the Time of Immediate Placement Premium Member Content

Immediate Dentoalveolar Restoration - Labial Contour Grafting at the Time of Immediate Placement
Until recently, tooth replacement at compromised sites in the aesthetic zone, required long-term treatment with possible undesirable complications in the tissue architecture. The Immediate Dentoalveolar Restoration (IDR) is a technique established to broaden indications for immediate loading on individual teeth. In this way, tissue losses with varied extensions are reconstructed in the same surgical session of implant placement and provisional crown installation, reducing the number of interventions and keeping predictability on aesthetic aspects. The IDR, which advocates minimally invasive procedures, will be presented as a viable and reproducible alternative.

Biologic Strategies to Enhance Clinical and Aesthetic Success in Oral Implantology
This webinar will discuss clinical strategies for treatment of the complex implant site involving bone grafting and implant placement. Our understanding of cellular pathways, and our ability to control the wound response, expands our capacity to effect better aesthetic outcomes and compress treatment time. The reduction of the inflammatory phase of tissue regeneration speeds up osseointegration, prevents crestal bone loss, maintains papillary form, increases the density of peri-implant bone and increases tissue biotype. This enhanced tissue response allows us to predictably treat even the most complex surgical cases, compress time to final reconstruction, and to maintain these favorable tissue outcomes over an extended period of time. The use of dental implants with advanced biologic features and the incorporation autologous growth factors will be demonstrated.

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.

Alloplastic Bone Substitutes Around Dental Implants

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…

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

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.
