Summary:

The objective of this proof-of-principle study was to examine the potential for improved bone regenerative outcomes in maxillary sinus augmentation procedures when recombinant human platelet-derived growth factor BB (0.3 mg/mL) is combined with particulate anorganic bovine bone mineral. The surgical outcomes in all treated sites were uneventful at 6 to 8 months, with sufficient regenerated bone present to allow successful placement of maxillary posterior implants.

Applied Techniques for Predictable Suture Placement Part 2
Precise suture positioning is critical for adequate tissue healing and can be facilitated using a variety of techniques for closure. Part 1 of this article presented a discussion on the various interrupted, continuous, and periosteal suturing techniques for tissue maintenance. This article will present additional modalities available to ensure predictable healing and flap security fallowing a variety of surgical invasions.

Barriers in the Surgical Suite: Standards Required

Barriers in the Surgical Suite: Standards Required
Dental implant, periodontal , and oral surgical procedures or any potentially hemorrhagic procedures put the practitioner and staff at risk for exposure to blood-borne viruses (eg, AIDS, Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C), as well as saliva and blood-transmitted pathogens (eg, Mycobacterium tuberculosis, Staphyloccus, Streptococcus, cytomegalovirus). There are also a number of viruses that may infect the upper respiratory tract. In these cases, infections may be transmitted through direct contact with blood…

The Socket-Shield Technique: First Histological, Clinical, and Volumetrical Observations after Separation of the Buccal Tooth Segment – A Pilot Study

The Socket-Shield Technique: First Histological, Clinical, and Volumetrical Observations after Separation of the Buccal Tooth Segment – A Pilot Study
The “socket-shield technique” has shown its potential in preserving buccal tissues. However, front teeth often have to be extracted due to vertical fractures in buccolingual direction. It has not yet been investigated if the socket-shield technique can only be used with intact roots or also works with a modified shield design referring to vertical fracture lines. The aim of this study was to assess histologically, clinically, and volumetrically the effect of separating the remaining buccal root segment in two pieces before immediate implant placement.

Horizontal Augmentation Through the Ridge-Split Procedure: A Predictable Surgical Modality in Implant Reconstruction Premium Member Content

Horizontal Augmentation Through the Ridge-Split Procedure: A Predictable Surgical Modality in Implant Reconstruction
The need for an adequate alveolar ridge width has been a long-standing principle in pre-prosthetic surgery. Since the introduction of root-form endosseous dental implants, the necessity of proper alveolar ridge width has become essential. Many surgical pre-implant bone augmentation techniques with the goal of reconstructing deficient alveolar width, height, or both have been proposed. A variety of alveolar ridge augmentation techniques for treatment of 2-D and 3-D bone deficiencies have been described and include guided bone regeneration (GBR) with a cancellous graft, onlay/veneer block graft, inlay grafting, ridge-split, vertical and horizontal distraction osteogenesis, and others.

Apical Mattress Suture: Prevention of "Oxidative Stress" of Bone & Soft Tissue

Apical Mattress Suture: Prevention of "Oxidative Stress" of Bone & Soft Tissue
It’s impossible to heal well and fast when the tissue is in oxidative stress.. It occurs when there is an excess of oxidants or deficiency of antioxidants: smokers and diabetics have issues because they are in chronic oxidative stress... Tension free flap closure in mandatory. Otherwise, soft tissue and bone will fall in oxidative stress. The solution is to suture the flaps with an adequate technique. In this presentation, we show how to achieve soft tissue immobility and fixed buccal flap. How to manage the sutures? When to remove them? What’s the best material? How to handle a flat knot and the following knots? How to increase the soft tissue thickness? etc… All details and clinical follow-up are described in this short presentation.

Controlled Ridge Splitting (CRS) Premium Member Content

Controlled Ridge Splitting (CRS)
To demonstrate a new technique of controlled ridge splitting (CRS) in severely atrophied maxillary cases as an alternative to autogenous block graft. Twenty cases were completed using a controlled ridge splitting (CRS) technique with a total of 65 implants were placed in severely atrophied Maxillae and followed after the implants were loaded. Results: The CRS technique was used in very complex cases, where the alternative method will be autogenous block graft. A total of 65 tapered implants were placed. The implants diameter ranged between 3.25-5mm with a length ranged between 10-13mm. The implants were restored and were followed for 1-3 years. All implants achieved osseointegration and continue to have successful prostheses. Conclusion: The CRS is a predictable treatment option and could be a good alternative to autogenous block grafts is severely atrophic maxillae.

The Role of Digital Technologies & Materials for Full-Arch Implant Reconstruction Premium Member Content

The Role of Digital Technologies & Materials for Full-Arch Implant Reconstruction
In prosthetic rehabilitations, we used for many years codified and widely described protocols in literature, with results that met our expectations and well above those of our patients. It is true that the advent of new technologies has enabled the dental team to use new material and new equipment that facilitated the production of an adaptation and an accuracy of the prosthetic rehabilitation that has, up to now, been difficult to obtain. In this presentation, we will analyze different cases, highlighting the operational differences that they have developed over time, with the increasing knowledge of the new materials and the daily developing of the new software's. It is also described how traditional materials and techniques have been replaced with other innovative new technologies, and how the results obtained with these are systematic and significantly better in updated generations prior.
