Excellent job Dr Glukman

Excellent video Dr Gluckman ,thank you

Most excellent 2-part series! Would you consider grafting with autogenous particulate (either scraped or milled) placed against the titanium and in the gaps, followed by Bio-Oss, then a native membrane (Bio-Guide or Creoss), i.e., a standard GBR? If not, what are your indications for blocks over particulate? Lastly, I find the most challenging (and scary) part assuring tension free closure. You mentioned in part 2, having to release further. Did you simply deepen the incision/release in the same location, extend deep to the surface mucosa but laterally, etc? Again, fantastic case...amazing surgeon!

wow,Gluck,Really intresting to watch your surgery,quite impressive,learns a lot from tissue handling to advances..

Mo unfortunately they don't. Only because they are not financially viable in South Africa. I also have no experience with them so I am unable to compare or contrast between the different materials. But I still think that Autogenous remains Godl standard if I am correct over the growth factors please correct me if im wrong, if so I would always like to use the best if the patient is willing. Sometimes thy are not and sometimes the synthetics are definitely good enough.

Howard, Fantastic. Great service to your patient and to us docs as well. Part two even more interesting than part one so I felt compelled to comment. Much thanks chris

Super video and surgical skill displayed here Howard. How do growth factors impact your decisions today? Thanks for sharing. Maurice

Howard Gluckman - (11/20/2012 3:36 PM)

@ Jeremy. I dont understand as the osteotomy is done before the bone block is placed. THe block is only placed when the implant is in position. So I dont understand the question about better osseointegration. You are correct about the placement of bone from the bone collector as well as the xenograft in a sandwhich technique over the autogenous block. I have changed a little these days in that I only use autogenous bone and I dont use membranes at all any more I dont find it necessary and I get better flap closure this way. I dont understand the 3rd question can you eplain this one to me as well. With regards to question 4 I always try and use a provisional partial acrylic denture as I can easily control the pressure on the bone and the flap. One can easily remove it and check that the flap has closed well. thanks for the question

Howard Gluckman - (11/20/2012 3:26 PM)

@Faez. THanks for the kind words. THis is not ideal for immediate placement as one would like to have the soft tissue close first. I usually wait 8 weeks which gives good soft tissue closure but very little bone remodelling. With regards to implant insertion torque you can definitely do as you say but I dont find it necessary unless the torque goes way too high. In this case one does not need the primary stanility as one is not going to immediate load or do single stage surgery it will get a cover screw and primary closure will take place. I hope this answers your question

Interpositional Bone Grafts to Treat the Posterior Atrophic Mandible Premium Member Content

Interpositional Bone Grafts to Treat the Posterior Atrophic Mandible
This presentation analyzes the interpositional bone graft or inlay technique, discussing the reconstructive surgical approach. Horizontal osteotomy with the interposition of bone in the form of a “sandwich” involves raising a coronal osteotomized segment of the mandible, which is still attached to the lingual periosteum, and interpositioning a block bone graft. This technique guarantees a dual vascular supply to the inlay graft from the lingual periosteum and from the residual bone; it also allows optimum use of the native basal bone, which should be less prone to resorption. The advantages and disadvantages of the inlay technique are compared with other commonly used augmentation techniques in the management of posterior mandibular atrophies.

Ridge Expansion, GBR & Meshes: Decision Making in Clinical Practice
A variety of bone augmentation procedures are currently available at use to the clinician. Techniques of variable complexity can essentially yield favorable results. The choice of technique to utilize however, is often based on defect site presentation and operator comfort level. This presentation will focus on the use of ridge expansion, guided bone regeneration (GBR), and titanium mesh. Merits and indications of each technique will be discussed, and clinical cases will be presented that showcase the decision making process involved in treatment planning.

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.

Reconstruction of a Single-Tooth Traumatic Defect in the Anterior Maxilla Using the Khoury Bone Plate Graft

Reconstruction of a Single-Tooth Traumatic Defect in the Anterior Maxilla Using the Khoury Bone Plate Graft
Trauma to teeth and the dentoalveolar process may result in a ridge defect that precludes straightforward implant therapy of the patient. Typically bone and soft tissue augmentation of the area would first be needed to adequately prepare the tissues for the implant and its restoration..Grafting of the site is substantially more difficult in cases where the ridge also lacks adequate height, and techniques to recreate a bony envelope to apply guided bone regeneration may be required. Moreover, defects in the anterior aesthetic zone that require both bone and soft tissue grafting and a restoration that harmonizes the adjacent pink and white aesthetics may be an even more significant challenge to the restorative team. Hereafter a case of trauma to an anterior maxillary tooth that saw destruction of the ridge is presented, with the defect reconstructed to accommodate a functional and aesthetically pleasing implant supported restoration.
