Bone Augmentation of the Atrophic Posterior Mandible for Dental Implants Using rhBMP-2 and Titanium Mesh: Clinical Technique and Early Results Bone Augmentation of the Atrophic Posterior Mandible for Dental Implants Using rhBMP-2 and Titanium Mesh: Clinical Technique and Early Results

Summary:

The atrophic posterior mandible has unique challenges when implant placement is planned. The purpose of the case series was to evaluate the use of recombinant human bone morphogenetic protein 2/acelluar collagen sponge (rhBMP-2/ACS) and titanium mesh for augmentation of the atrophic posterior mandible prior to implant insertion. The case series included five patients with inadequate bone in the posterior mandible for implant placement. The residual ridges were augmented with rhBMP-2/ACS and a small amount of bone substitute. Titanium mesh was used to protect the graft sites. Dental implants were inserted after 6 months of healing. Healing of the grafted ridges was uneventful. Dental implants were placed in all grafted sites without the need for further bone augmentation. All 10 implants integrated well and were restored with single crowns. The use of rhBMP-2/ACS with titanium mesh was effective in this case series for augmentation of the atrophic posterior mandible prior to implant placement. This approach offers many advantages, including technical ease, no need for bone harvesting, decreased morbidity, and reduced surgical time.

Modified IVAN Technique: Long-Term Follow-Up of 20 Cases Over 2 to 11 Years

Modified IVAN Technique: Long-Term Follow-Up of 20 Cases Over 2 to 11 Years
When natural teeth fail, frequently there is a loss of hard and soft tissue. This may complicate subsequent dental implant placement by creating insufficient bone to house the implant. This also occurs when the tooth has been missing for an extended period, especially in the premaxilla, where the bone is less dense and often lacks sufficient volume of facial bone. Site reconstruction to accommodate implant placement often requires both hard and soft tissue augmentation. The modified interpositional vascularized augmentation neogenesis (mIVAN) technique achieves the desired treatment goals in both delayed and immediate placement scenarios. The technique will be discussed as well as the long-term follow-up on 20 cases.

The mIVAN Approach for Preservation Surgery
mIVAN* Technique is a nice abbreviation for complicated terminus: “ Modified Interpositional Augmentation Neogenesis”. It is basically simultaneous hard and soft tissue augmentation utilizing pediculated connective tissue graft. It works for Socket type 2 and 3 and ridges with horizontal atrophy. Combined with Partial Extraction Therapy, mIVAN technique is a nice treatment choice for the teeth with recessions.

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.

When considering implant therapy in the esthetic zone, replicating the natural soft tissue frame may present challenges for the treating clinician. This presentation will highlight different clinical scenarios in which the lack of hard and soft tissue volume may pose difficulties in achieving ideal peri-implant esthetics, in addition to available clinical strategies on how to manage and minimize hard and soft tissue deficiencies when dealing with implant therapy in the esthetic zone.
