Vertical Bone Augmentation: Current Concepts and Techniques

Description:
The management of vertical bone loss has always posed as a challenge to implant dentistry. Various different techniques have been developed to vertically reconstruct the deficient alveolar ridge to allow for proper implant placement. However there is very little consensus as to what constitutes the ideal treatment to repair the deficient ridge. This lecture will review several approaches used for vertical bone augmentation and discuss the benefits and limitations of each. There will be special emphasis on the titanium mesh and inter-positional osteotomy techniques.

On the smile Osteotomy , is it completely seperated on th lingual. What is the fixation kit used

This video presentation is about the best I have seen so far at dental xp. Thanks and congratulations David!

good

great lecture. I am an OMFS, and have had similar experiences. The interpositional has been the most consistent graft technique for vertical height gain and stability for the posterior mandible My comment is that there are so many of these patients out there (posterior resorbed mandible) that I believe are being told that they can not get implants. I don't think the GP's and specialists are aware of some of these newer effective techniques

David Yarmand - (12/6/2012 9:55 PM)

Thank you everyone for all the great comments and questions. I will try to answer the last few in this one post. Regarding the question about the simplest technique: The tent pole procedure is perhaps the least invasive of the techniques discussed although I would have to qualify that statement as each of the various methods discussed has it's time and place and even the tent pole is not ideal in every clinical situation. As far as tension free closure around the mental foramen, the dissection inferior to the foramen is a split thickness incision which gives us plenty of release if need be. However, most times there is no need to gain extra slack as the tissue is usually tension free.

Mark Gutt - (12/4/2012 11:03 PM)

Informative presentation Dr. Yarmand! I wish I had seen it prior to today as I performed a combination interpositional graft (just as you described with fixation plate), but also added a lateral Regenaform bone graft with tent poles after decortication. I enjoyed your clear review of the different methods. Thank you so much. Dr. Mark Gutt

Dear David, excellent video. How can you achieve tension free closure especially around mental foramen? Thanks.

Edison Louie - (12/2/2012 9:11 PM)

Dr.Yarmand, thank you for taking the time and effort to provide a current profile of vertical osseous graft techniques. Very well done and highly appreciated. Edison Louie

Dr. Yarmand; The question for me is what is the SIMPLEST procedure you have in your armamentarium to grow vertical bone. Some of your cases are technically very difficult for most on this board. thanks Band

Regenerative Procedures for Implant Site Optimization: Establishing the Perio-Implant Interface
Emerging concepts in implant dentistry have allowed bone preservation to become a reality, thus reducing the need for extensive augmentation procedures. Nevertheless, clinicians are still confronted with atrophic defects that require complex regenerative strategies for dental implant rehabilitation. This presentation will focus on some of the essential elements for a predictable regenerative protocol in implant site development. A discussion will include the use of defect topography as a guide in choosing a suitable augmentation technique. Several considerations that allow for tension free wound closure will be reviewed. Furthermore, an evidence based approach in graft material selection will be presented. Clinical cases will then be reviewed, to demonstrate how to integrate the presented principles into daily clinical practice.

Extraction and Bone Grafting Techniques to Optimize Site Preservation
Implant placement is dependent upon bone quantity and quality. The ideal opportunity for bone preservation exists at the time of tooth extraction. All too often this opportunity is lost. Extraction techniques will be demonstrated that not only preserve but augment the amount of alveolar bone. The importance of piezosurgery, atraumatic surgical technique, the use of bone grafts, resorbable membranes and growth factors will be elucidated.
