The Role of Autogenous Bone Plates In Critical Size Defects Premium Member Content

The Role of Autogenous Bone Plates In Critical Size Defects
A critical size defect is one that will not heal spontaneously and requires further surgical intervention to correct the situation. Those defects outside the normal scope of work also need that extra something to achieve an ideal result. Autogenous bone plates using the split bone block technique (SBBT) is one of those techniques that allows one to achieve outstanding results. This lecture will look at the benefits of autogenous bone over synthetic materials and compare solid blocks to SBBT to determine the best treatment options. The management and decision-making tree are comprehensively covered to allow the clinician to develop a structured workflow to help plan and execute these techniques. Tips and tricks will be discussed as well as indications and contraindications. The new technique of bone bending will also be shared as other exciting topics.

The Importance of Graft Stability in GBR Premium Member Content

The Importance of Graft Stability in GBR
There are several key points in successful GBR outcomes. The most critical is Graft Stability. If the graft is loose or mobile connective tissue can invade the regenerative space and cause failure. This presentation will highlight the key technical points to stabilize the bone graft through membrane stabilization and suturing.

"The Robin Hood Approach" Managing Defects by Utilization of Organic Graft Materials Part 2 Premium Member Content

"The Robin Hood Approach" Managing Defects by Utilization of Organic Graft Materials Part 2
This 2 part presentation will cover the management of alveolar volume deficiencies utilizing autologous sources for bone and soft tissue grafting. The use of various soft tissue grafts and pedicle grafts as well as the grinding of extracted teeth to create localized dentin bone grafting substitutes aided by PRF will be described. These techniques describe an approach to maximize the patient's own tissues locally delivered to the defect site to maximize the healing potential.

Bone Augmentation in Infected Sites with Bovine-Derived Xenograft Mixed with Platelet-Rich Plasma Covered by Platelet-Poor Plasma

Bone Augmentation in Infected Sites with Bovine-Derived Xenograft Mixed with Platelet-Rich Plasma Covered by Platelet-Poor Plasma
The aim of this study was to assess the success of bone regeneration in infected and non-infected human dental defects, with respect to biological properties of bone remodeling. Histomorphometric analysis of bone biopsies was used to evaluate new bone formation, soft tissue, and residual biomaterial in infected and noninfected sites. In all samples, the biomaterial particles were surrounded by newly generated bone. Among factors that were analyzed, gender, medical state, and smoking had no significant effect on bone regeneration. Variables including tooth location, platelet concentrate, and protective membrane addition were also analyzed for their effects on bone regeneration.

Fibrinogen-Induced Regeneration Sealing Technique (F.I.R.S.T.). An Improvement and Modification of Traditional GBR: A Report of Two Cases

Fibrinogen-Induced Regeneration Sealing Technique (F.I.R.S.T.). An Improvement and Modification of Traditional GBR: A Report of Two Cases
Guided bone regeneration is a technique widely known, clinicians know very well indications and limitations of this technique. One of the principles to achieve bone augmentation and formation resides in the stability of the blood clot forming under a barrier membrane. The technique proposed in this article has the goal of providing stabilization to the bone graft by adding fibrin sealant (FS) to the bone graft and also using the fibrin sealant to attach a bone membrane (cortical lamina) to the recipient site. This simple modification of the technique of guided bone regeneration is presented in two successful cases.

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.

The Utilization of Advanced Flap Management & GBR to Large Alveolar Ridge Defects Premium Member Content

The Utilization of Advanced Flap Management & GBR to Large Alveolar Ridge Defects
Proper flap management is critical and key to obtain tension-free flap closure at large 3D ridge augmentation sites. The objective of this presentation is to highlight the most relevant clinical aspects to reduce tension during wound closure, therefore reducing associated complications, namely flap dehiscences that predispose our patients to post operative infection and reduced bone formation. Several clinical tips will be highlighted via multimedia and video to help the clinician increase their own predictability with these kind of procedures. Clinical cases will be presented to demonstrate the steps discussed in detail.

Rehabilitation of the Extreme Atrophic Jaws Premium Member Content

Rehabilitation of the Extreme Atrophic Jaws
In this lecture you will learn several alternatives for the full arch rehabilitation of the jaws with different degrees of resorption. Several cases will be presented step-by-step with high-quality pictures for each technique explained. The main goals are to avoid complex regeneration procedures, to avoid zigomatic surgery and to still be able to perform immediate loading in the most compromised scenarios. All-on-Four technique, palatal approach technique, pterygoid implants and the most recent Subperiosteal Implants are some of the key-concepts presented.

Bone Grafting & Implant Dentistry; Classification, Surgical Site Understanding & Membrane Selection Part 1 of 3 Premium Member Content

Bone Grafting & Implant Dentistry; Classification, Surgical Site Understanding & Membrane Selection Part 1 of 3
Once a tooth is extracted, the natural wound-healing cascade paired with irreversible alteration occurs. Hard tissue grafting techniques combined with the sound understanding of the surgical site theater will help the practitioner to make the proper decision in order to successfully treat their patient. The usage of biological modifiers and surgical barriers are proposed to assist in improving the predictability of the advance surgical care.
