It seems both ti-reinforced membrane and ti mesh users like to cover with another membrane (resorbable) to prevent exposure. Nice to know.

thank you for the nice presentation dear Dr.ishikawa.titanium mesh is a nice membrane ,easy to place but hard to remove.how do you remove the membrane ?

Milo Garcia Tempone - (3/7/2010 3:08 PM)

Thank you for sharing this nice technique. Where and how can we purchase these titanium membranes.

Mark Neale - (12/3/2009 8:15 PM)

Great results. Thanks for sharing. How were the mesh and membranes stablized?

Tomohiro Ishikawa - (6/16/2009 5:54 AM)

James, yes it is a little difficult to remove the Titanium mesh.I now always use cross-linked collagen membrane to cover the mesh in compliance with the accepted theory of GBR. Sometimes the mesh is covered with newly formed bone, in this case we have to use burs or chisels to remove the bone, before removing the mesh. On occasion, there is a thin soft tissue layer under the membrane. In this case, I use a blade to separate the tissue from the titanium mesh. In answer to your other question,I feel that it shouldn't be necessary to ever remove regenerated tissue.

Tomohiro Ishikawa - (6/16/2009 5:21 AM)

Maurice, I agree that PRGF,BMP or PDGF would have a positive influence on new bone formation. In addition, PRGF and PDGF would enhance soft tissue healing; which in turn, would reduce the chance of post-operative complications.

Paul, Thank you for your comment. I agree with you, a more stable video would be easier to watch.

How difficult is it to remove the titanium mesh at the uncovering stage?

Does it leave a somewhat bumpy ridge that you'll have to smooth down with a bur?

Maurice Salama - (5/17/2009 7:16 AM)

Amazing. Great surgical technique. Fitting the titanium membrane today can be done presurgically on a stereolithographic 3D model. Perhaps this would be a good indication for a bioactive modifier incorporated into the bone graft like PRGF or rhBMP?

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.

Modern Approach of Full Arch Immediate Loading
In Immediate loading, the survival rate is often based on the follow-up of the osseointegration, but without aesthetic appreciation... The main goal is to achieve osseointegration and aesthetics in order to get long term stability. For this goal we need to obtain both, bone formation and gum thickness, as any failure in one of the 2 factors, will induce the loss of the second factor. This presentation will show my statistics about more than 1100 full arch loaded immediately since 14 years (> 7700 implants)

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”.

Post-Traumatic Treatment of Maxillary Incisors by Immediate Dentoalveolar Restoration with Long-Term Follow-Up

Post-Traumatic Treatment of Maxillary Incisors by Immediate Dentoalveolar Restoration with Long-Term Follow-Up
Replacing both missing maxillary interior teeth is particularly challenging, especially in compromised sockets. The case report describes the management of an 18-year-old female patient, who suffered avulsion of both maxillary central incisors at 7 years of age. The multidisciplinary implant technique, called Immediate Dentoalveolar Restoration (IDR), included extraction of the injured teeth and a single procedure for immediate implant placement and restoration of the compromised sockets after root fracture and peri-apical lesion development were detected during orthodontic treatment. Successful esthetic and functional outcomes and reestablishment of the alveolar process after bone reconstruction were observed during the 3-year follow-up period. The predictable esthetic outcomes and soft and hard tissue stability that can be achieved following IDR are demonstrated.
