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

Alternative & New Tendencies for Alveolar Reconstruction in Modern Implant Dentistry
Knowledge of bone biology and physiology are crucial for successful dento-alveolar reconstruction. The presentation will review the natural healing process of the bone and the sequence of events needed for proper regeneration. This process will then be discussed and compare with the present materials and technologies available in the market including alloplastics and allogenic materials. The role of the Stem Cells and rh-BMP2 will be exposed as part of these new trends in alveolar reconstruction for modern implant dentistry. Multiple cases will be presented demonstrating the versatility and outcomes in different clinical situations based on biological, bio-mechanics, and implant aesthetic needs.

New Generation of Customized Titanium Membranes for Achieving Predictable Buccal Bone Regeneration Every Time
Stable soft tissue can only be maintained over the long term if there is adequate buccal bone. Achieving this bone can be unpredictable at times. The grafted bone requires space maintenance along with graft stability in order to allow angiogenesis to reach all the bone that is being grafted as well as enough time for the bone conversion process to occur. This short video presents of an extremely simple technique using a titanium membrane that can be used with most implant types to create stable buccal bone. It also goes through the criteria for successful bone regeneration and how to implement them.

Esthetic Management for Compromised Extraction Sites - Part 2 of 2 Premium Member Content

Esthetic Management for Compromised Extraction Sites - Part 2 of 2
Missing soft tissue is the main reason for compromised results in the aesthetic zone. But since the soft tissue has to be supported by a sufficient amount of bone, our focus has also to be on bone. Due to the fact that no bone-preservation technique (at the time of tooth extraction) available today, gives us the perfect result we need, augmentation procedures are still needed. Appropriate bone and soft tissue engineering in all three dimensions enhances the aesthetic performance of long-lasting restorations that blend in well and emerge from the periimplant sulcus in harmony with the neighboring teeth.

Surgical Management of Posterior Maxilla Premium Member Content

Surgical Management of Posterior Maxilla
Replacement of missing teeth with dental Implants in the posterior maxilla presents unique challenges due to maxillary sinus, less quality of bone, and increased occlusal load. The surgical objectives to meet functional and aesthetic goals include enhancement of both quantity and quality of bone as well as ideal placement of dental implants for restorations that mimic nature. In this presentation, Dr. H. Ryan Kazemi discusses current surgical techniques in implant site development in the posterior maxilla including extraction site grafting, sinus lift, bi-directional bone graft, and osseodensification for bone management.

Subclassification and Clinical Management of Extraction Sockets with Labial Dentoalveolar Dehiscence Defects
Immediate implant therapy involving implants placed into intact Type 1 extraction sockets has become a consistent clinical technique. The classification of Type 2 extraction sockets, where the mucosal tissues are present but there is a midfacial osseous dehiscence defect, has been described according to the extent of the buccal bone plate absence. The literature has offered different techniques in the treatment of Type 2 sockets; however, the extent of the defect has never been defined or delineated.
