Summary:

The effect of the pure-phase beta-tricalcium phosphate (beta-TCP) Cerasorb on bone regeneration was evaluated in hollow titanium cylinders implanted in the posterior jaws of five volunteers. Beta-TCP particles were inserted inside the cylinders and harvested 6 months after placement. The density of the newly formed bone inside the bone-growing chambers measured 27.84% ± 24.67% in test and 17.90% ± 4.28% in control subjects, without a statistically significant difference. Analysis of the histologic specimens revealed that the density of the regenerated bone was related to the density of the surrounding bone. The present study demonstrates the spontaneous healing of infrabony artificial defects, 2.5 mm diameter, in the jaw. The pure beta-TCP was resorbed simultaneously with new bone formation, without interference with the bone matrix formation. (Int J Periodontics Restorative Dent 2003;23:69–77.)

Guided Bone Regeneration Using a Titanium Membrane at Implant Placement: A Case Report and Literature Discussion
Reconstruction of the oral supporting tissues lost by disease or trauma is essential to tooth replacement with dental implant therapy. This treatment requires evidence based augmentative procedures combined with up-to-date and current techniques. Guided bone regeneration (GBR) aims to initialize this process of alveolar ridge reconstruction by utilizing biologically active and supportive materials best coupled to the body’s healing processes. The use of nonresorbable, titanium membranes can achieve GBR by ensuring graft stability and space maintenance so as to ensure optimal neovascularization. Hereafter is a case report of a ridge defect reconstructed at implant placement, with the rationale and current, evidence-based literature discussed.

A Fixed Whole-Mouth Rehabilitation Utilizing Natural Abutments and Implants: Treatment Concepts and Clinical Realization
A 45-year-old female patient presented to the clinic with a request to treat her deteriorating dentition that had been reconstructed 15 years ago with fixed restorations. Clinical examination revealed fixed partial dentures cemented to natural abutments in the maxilla, whereas telescopic restorations were cemented to natural abutments bilaterally in the mandible. The treatment plan included a whole-mouth rehabilitation utilizing natural teeth and implants. As the patient declined any surgical augmentation…

BMP, PRP, PRGF and PRF; At the Edge of Regenerative Surgery
Biological modifiers and growth factors are substances that the body produces naturally in response to injury or disease. The use of these substances in regenerative procedures has made hard and soft tissue regeneration more predictable while accelerating healing and decreasing patient morbidity. This webinar will review the wound healing process and the role that growth factors play in regeneration. BMP, PRP, PRF and PRGF will be reviewed and their clinical applications will be demonstrated. At the end of this webinar the participant will have a good understanding of the differences between these biological modifiers and their benefits.

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.

Combined Augmentation Therapies in the Esthetic Zone
The esthetic zone presents a far bigger challenge than any other area of the mouth. It is the one area that a patient has the ability to really scrutinize the work that has been done and anything that does not pass muster will quickly create problems in our practices. Uncompromising treatment planning is therefore essential to ensure the long term aesthetic stability of our esthetic cases. Treatment planning involves both bone and soft tissue therapy as both are critical for the stability. This lecture will highlife the importance of different treatment options as well as show numerous new techniques that are possible to achieve the results that both our patients and practitioners are proud of.
