Summary:

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 and the apatite compounds. Most importantly, the practitioner shouId be cognizant that presently, autografts stiII represent the gold standard and provide excellent osteoconductive scaffolding, although they do require a harvesting procedure. The ideal goal of bone regenerative therapy is the reconstruction of alveolar bone that has been lost due to disease or atrophy. Bone grafting is one of the therapeutic modalities employed to fulfill this goal. The objectives of this additive procedure are the restoration of lost alveolar bone and possibly the regeneration of a functional periodontal attachment apparatus around teeth and bone around dental implants. This article discusses bone grafting materials and introduces a new bone substitute material which can be effective in both the regeneration of previously lost bone and the preservation of existing bone after extraction of diseased teeth.

Recombinant Human Platelet– Derived Growth Factor: A Systematic Review of Clinical Findings in Oral Regenerative Procedures

Recombinant Human Platelet– Derived Growth Factor: A Systematic Review of Clinical Findings in Oral Regenerative Procedures
The use of recombinant human plateletderived growth factor–BB (rhPDGF) has received Food and Drug Administration approval for the treatment of periodontal and orthopedic bone defects and dermal wound healing. Many studies have investigated its regenerative potential in a variety of other oral clinical indications. The aim of this systematic review was to assess the efficacy, safety, and clinical benefit of recombinant human plateletderived growth factor (rhPDGF) use for alveolar bone and/or soft tissue regeneration. Based on the clinical evidence, rhPDGF is safe and provides clinical benefits when used in combination with bone allografts, xenograft, or β-TCP for the treatment of intrabony and furcation periodontal defects and gingival recession or when used with allografts or xenograft for GBR and ARP.

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.

Modern Implant Dentistry: Rules of Engagement in the Esthetic Zone - Part 1 of 2
This presentation will focus on the interdisciplinary relationship of the restorative dentist, periodontist and orthodontist to reconstruct the soft tissue foundation for all of these restorative options in anterior tooth replacement. The diagnosis of deficiencies as well as the varied treatment options will be discussed in detail. This includes periodontal crown lengthening, esthetic periodontal plastic soft tissue grafting procedures as well as prescription adjunctive orthodontic tooth movement to manipulate the soft tissue foundation prior to or subsequent with the restorative options of implants, bridges, or pontic replacement.

Autologous Bone vs. Bioactive Modifiers/BMP-2: A Clinical Update in Bone Regeneration - Part 2 of 2 Premium Member Content

Autologous Bone vs. Bioactive Modifiers/BMP-2: A Clinical Update in Bone Regeneration - Part 2 of 2
There are several techniques and materials available for implant site development. The choice may depend on a number of factors including size of the defect, osseous morphology, costs and surgeon or patient preferences. Autogenous bone has long been considered the gold standard of graft materials. The trend today is to reduce patient morbidity but still provide predictable outcomes. This lecture will discuss the use of autogenous bone versus using bioactive modifiers such as platelet concentrates, rhPDGF and rhBMP-2 as replacement for the need to harvest bone.

Advanced Bone Grafting Techniques: Part 2 - Autogenous Bone Blocks in the Reconstruction of the Atrophic Maxillary Ridge
This lecture will describe the use of autologous onlay block bone grafting for reconstruction of moderate to severe atrophic maxillary alveolar ridge. This will include a discussion of the various options to this form of grafting, such as short implants, maxillary sinus augmentation, sub-nasal elevation procedure, connective tissue grafting and soft tissue manipulation, Le-Fort I down fracture/osteotomy and the use of progenitor cells: bone marrow aspirating concentrated. A description of surgical donor harvest sites in the mandible will also be performed as well as post-op healing of these sites. Additional time will be spent reviewing causes of failure with bone blocks and implants placed into these sites.
