Procedural Anatomy for the Implant Surgeon; The Maxilla Premium Member Content

Procedural Anatomy for the Implant Surgeon; The Maxilla
Every single implant surgeon requires the knowledge of the oral environment they are working within. This multimedia presentation will focus upon procedural anatomy of the maxilla. Critical anatomical landmarks will be highlighted. Blood vessels, nerves, glands and bone aspects of maxillary surgery will be discussed. Special attention will be focused on risk avoidance and complication-emergency management. Premaxilla, posterior maxilla, palate, nasal floor, sinus, zygomatic and pterygoid anatomy will be incorporated.

Autogenous Harvest Sites for Implant Grafting Premium Member Content

Autogenous Harvest Sites for Implant Grafting
The utilization of autologous bone remains the Gold standard in regeneration. The ability to harvest bone safely and in adequate quantities for alveolar bone regeneration is often a limitation in private practice. This multimedia presentation will focus on several potential intra-oral harvest sites and the manner in which they can effectively be utilized in a modern implant practice. Incision designs, harvest tools, local anatomy and potential risks will be highlighted.

Horizontal & Vertical Bone Augmentation Using the Khoury Bone Plate Technique Premium Member Content

Horizontal & Vertical Bone Augmentation Using the Khoury Bone Plate Technique
The Khoury Bone Plate Technique is a predictable surgical method to graft alveolar ridge defects in both the horizontal and vertical dimensions. This technique involves harvesting cortical plates from the ramus of the mandible and fixating these bone plates to the ridge defect using screws. Scrapings of cancellous and cortical autogenous bone are then interposed between the plates in a “Sandwich” technique allowing for a 3-dimensional augmentation of the ridge defect.

Subperiosteal Implants - The New Approach for the Extreme Atrophic Jaws

Subperiosteal Implants - The New Approach for the Extreme Atrophic Jaws
Subperiosteal implants started in the 40’s but were discontinued due to the poor success rates in the long term. Today, 80 years later, a completely different technology has emerged, bringing Subperiosteal implants to the next level.

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.

Buccal Sliding Palatal Pedicle Flap Technique for Wound Closure After Ridge Augmentation

Buccal Sliding Palatal Pedicle Flap Technique for Wound Closure After Ridge Augmentation
One standard approach for wound closure after ridge augmentation is coronal flap advancement. Coronal flap advancement results in displacement of the mucogingival junction and reduction of the vestibulum. In the maxilla, a buccal sliding palatal flap can be applied for primary wound closure after ridge augmentation. The dissected part of the palatal connective tissue is left exposed, thus eliminating or reducing the amount of the coronal flap advancement respectively and increasing the amount of keratinized gingiva. In combination with guided soft tissue augmentation, this flap design enables a three-dimensional peri-implant soft tissue augmentation.

A Decade of the Socket-Shield Technique: A Step-by-Step Partial Extraction Therapy Protocol

A Decade of the Socket-Shield Technique: A Step-by-Step Partial Extraction Therapy Protocol
Ten years have passed since Hürzeler and coworkers first introduced the socket-shield technique. Much has developed and evolved with regard to partial extraction therapy, a collective concept of utilizing the patient’s own tooth root to preserve the periodontium and peri-implant tissue. The specifications, steps, instrumentation, and procedures discussed in this article are the result of extensive experience in refining the socket-shield technique as we know it today. A repeatable, predictable protocol is requisite to providing tooth replacement in esthetic dentistry. Moreover, a standardized protocol provides a better framework for clinicians to report data relating to the technique with procedural consistency. This article aims to illustrate a reproducible, step-by-step protocol for the socket- shield technique at immediate implant placement and provisionalization for single-rooted 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.
