Questions & Comments

I prefer doing the periosteal realeasing incision just prior to wound closure and final suturing when possible as it allows me to control graft positioning, contouring and membrane placement PRN as well as final stabilization of all of the above without having to manage bleeding and visibility at the same time.

Dr korner, I agree about the periosteal incision , but I think it was done because of "filming purposes"

Robert Körner - (1/21/2013 1:38 PM)

Is there nobody out there who asks himself: isn´t this a case that could (or should) have been treated without augmentation?(or at the outmost a little lateral augmentation in the most medial area) Three Implants of at least 10mm length and sufficent diameter shouldn´t have been a problem.By the way - where are the guidelines for the "crown-implant ratio".Actually we do not really know much about the apropriate legth and diameter of the implants we use. Further I think that is prefareable to do the periosteal incision much more prior to woundclosure, because bleeding will have stopped,when you start suturing, and you have less risk of haematoma.

Hi guys,

Sorry I haven’t been more punctual with regard to being part of this blog. Allow me to address some of the questions and concerns that have been posted already regarding flap management for the RBS bone harvest. First, generally speaking, contouring a block graft prior to fixation is always indicated. There are times however where post fixation contouring still needs to be done and when this occurs it can be done predictably with a slow speed burnishing concept that I have shown. Yes, this can put the block at risk but not if it’s done properly. I do utilize particulate mineralized allograft (MinerOss) for any morticing that is necessary with these block grafts and especially when overcontouring is indicated. For the past 4 years now I utilize PRGF as opposed to PRP as a bioactive modifier with all of my bone grafting including sinus grafting from autogenous block grafting, ridge splitting, etc.

The importance of flap relaxation prior to closure of any bone graft be it block bone, mesh particulate, ridge split, etc. cannot be emphasized enough. This technique that I show is of course specific to the mental neurovascular bundle area which not too coincidentally happens to be the area (posterior mandible) where most bone grafts fail – due to incision line opening and / or vestibular dehiscence. More often than not the clinician is too conservative with flap relaxation in and around the neurovascular bundle. Hopefully this helps. Also, it is never a good idea to place implants simultaneously with block grafting in that the remodeling that will occur will result in graft compromise as Dr. Salama pointed out. Always best to stage implant placement with block grafting. Again, hope this helps clarify some points.

Best regards,

Dr. Pikos

Would it be safer to use an electric motor?

Maurice Salama - (1/4/2010 12:10 PM)

Milind and Mohammed;
Thanks for the posts and questions. I do not believe leaving behind periosteum would have a negative effect on the healing but leaving soft tissue of any kind would be a negative. Denuding the bone as Dr. Pikos shows increases the bleeding of the recepient site allowing mesenchymal cells to emerge from the host bone allowing for better incorporation of the grafted bone.
As for placing implants simultaneously, I would avoid that as it increases the risk for a large failure of the grafted area. Better to graft and then come back 4-6 months later and place the implants when dealing with any kind of block graft autogenous, allograft or xenograft. As an additional comment, the biggest risk with these blocks is early flap dehiscence or fenestration. Always make sure to work in a thick tissue environment and gain tension free closure.
Hope this helps and welcome to the blog
Dr. Salama

could u have placed implants at the same time??

milind saudagar - (1/3/2010 7:11 AM)

just watched the surgery. it was very good procedure. my doubt was the bone part which was fixed appeared to be completely denuded of all periosteum & blood. if some amount of tissue would have been present, will it affect healing in any manner?

Very nice description of buccal release in such a way as to not violate the inferior alveolar nerve.

Site Preparation & Osseodensification in Bone Management Premium Member Content

Site Preparation & Osseodensification in Bone Management
Today's implant arena involves not only the understanding of procedures but also the science behind wound healing. Often new technologies and instrumentation evolves that have a significant impact on what we are able to do clinically. Piezosurgical devices, periotomes, osteotomes, hydraulic sinus devices, neurosurgical drills, and the "PET" (Partial Extraction Therapies) system are just a short list of those that have made surgery more efficient and less traumatic for our patients. Osseodensification is another concept that can be added to this long list. This lecture will speak about new age bone management concepts and how these technologies may be able to assist us. Potential issues and focus on use will be touched upon as well.

Management of The Critical Size Defect; New Age Tools and Techniques Premium Member Content

Management of The Critical Size Defect; New Age Tools and Techniques
This presentation highlights the placement of 2 implants in a large 3D Vertical & Horizontal defect in the anterior maxilla. The defect is treated by utilizing a mix of autogenous bone harvested using Auto-bone collector and cortical-cancellous particulate Allograft. The mix is then secured by a customized 3D pre-formed titanium membrane followed by "labial contour" augmentation of the defect which is then secured by a rigid absorbable collagen membrane to create and maintain space. This will protect the graft and help stabilize the blood clot during the critical healing time. This membrane is fixed by bone tacks for stability. The final results showing good healing of the soft and hard tissues is displayed.

Titanium Mesh and rhBMP-2 in Ridge Augmentation: Options and Limitations Premium Member Content

Titanium Mesh and rhBMP-2 in Ridge Augmentation: Options and Limitations
Titanium mesh has been used in reconstructive surgery and ridge augmentation for several years. The traditional technique involves using cancellous autogenous bone under the mesh scaffold. More recently growth factors and bone substitutes have been utilized as autograft replacements. There are several advantages to using titanium mesh for space maintenance including strength, ease of use, low cost and biocompatibility. However, the difficulty in removing the mesh has led to a search for other space maintenance scaffolds including tenting screws, dense preshaped collagen and porous high-density polyethylene. This webinar will discuss the use of rhBMP-2 for managing horizontal and vertical bone deficiencies with various scaffolds.

Immediate Implant Placement into Extraction Sockets with Labial Plate Dehiscence Defects: A Clinical Case Series

Immediate Implant Placement into Extraction Sockets with Labial Plate Dehiscence Defects: A Clinical Case Series
To measure the buccal plate reconstruction of extraction sockets with labial plate dehiscence defects using a bone allograft in combination with an absorbable collagen membrane and a custom-healing abutment at the time of tooth removal. Implants placed into sockets with labial plate dehiscence defects demonstrated radiographic reformation of the labial plate dehiscence defect at 6 to 9 months post-treatment. The net gain in labial plate on CBCT in L1 and L2 was 3.0 mm, where 0 mm existed at pre-treatment. The minimum amount of labial plate thickness of 2.0 mm was achieved in all treated sites, evaluated radiographically at 6-9 months post-operatively, in a single procedure, without flap elevation and maintaining the gingival architecture and satisfactory esthetics.
