A GRAFT-LESS Approach to Implant Dentistry

Description:
Vertical bone augmentation techniques are more invasive and success rates often vary according to the surgical expertise of the clinician. There has been a trend over time towards minimally invasive treatment options in implant dentistry. This approach attempts to avoid more complicated procedures involving bone augmentation for implant placement. In the posterior maxilla and mandible, the use of short implants (< 8.0 mm) can reduce the need for vertical bone grafting. Patients often prefer this strategy over more complex procedures that can cause complications, increase morbidity and require greater treatment length with higher costs. When inadequate available bone is present for implant placement, planned bone augmentation procedures may be performed for the purpose of placing short implants. The use of less demanding augmentation techniques that are less invasive and more predictable. This presentation discusses a “graft less” treatment philosophy that emphasizes the use of less demanding augmentation techniques for the purpose of placing short implants in atrophic posterior sites.

Excellent presentation!!

Perhaps one of the very best lectures on modern day more minimally invasive perspectives on bone regeneration in implant dentistry I have ever witnessed!!! Dr. Salama

Dr. Misch never disappoints. Everytime I watch one of his lectures I find hours and hours of articles to read. Highly recommend for the citations alone.

Treatment of the Extremely Atrophied Edentulous Maxilla Using Bone Marrow Stem Cells
Treatment of the extremely atrophied edentulous maxilla is one of the most challenging problems in reconstructive surgery. Due to the size of the graft and inherent co-morbidities of these patients they some of the most difficult and challenging to treat requiring multiple surgeries with significant morbidity. The gold standard of care has long been the use of autologous block grafts from the iliac crest prior to implant placement however harvesting bone from the iliac crest comes with significant donor site morbidity. New treatment modalities using minimal invasive procedures and the use of Bone marrow stem cells and growth factors will be discussed.

Severe Atrophic Anterior Maxilla: Advantages of Combined Therapy - Part 1 of 2
Anterior maxillary alveolar bone deficiency, can prevent implant placement for fixed rehabilitation and jeopardize the esthetic outcome. Clinical case of severe atrophy of anterior maxilla, due to loss of implants, is described: A combination of sub-nasal procedure and intra-oral autologous onlay bone graft were used for ridge augmentation and dental implant placement in steps procedure, combined with Bio-Oss saturated in Platelets Rich Plasma (PRP) and covered with platelets-poor-plasma (PPP) as a "biological membrane".

Bone Graft Solutions in the Treatment of a Defective &amp; Deficient Ridges; Advantages of Combined Therapy Premium Member Content

Bone Graft Solutions in the Treatment of a Defective & Deficient Ridges; Advantages of Combined Therapy
More patients are treated with implants than ever before. Unfortunately, many have insufficient bone available to support an implant prosthesis. This presentation describes the utilization of several different augmentation approaches for the severely resorbed ridge and dentally handicapped fully endentulous patient. Current concepts related to autogenous bone harvest, 3D bone augmentation combined with blood born bioactive modifiers and digital planning are defined. Video and high resolution images are utilized to further describe these approaches.

Manejo Integral de Maloclusion Clase III en Adulto, con Requerimientos Periodontales y Protesicos; Reporte de un caso clinico
En nuestra clinica observamos un aumento de pacientes adultos con problemas esqueletales, compromiso periodontal y necesidades protesicas. Debemos recurrir a la interconsulta con el periodoncista, protesista y cirujano maxilofacial, para la correccion del caso, prestando especial atencion al componente dentario, esqueletal y los tejidos blandos faciales del paciente. La cirugia ortognatica, que generalmente la realizamos luego de una preparacion ortodoncica, permite corregir discrepancias en el adulto y restaurar la funcion y estetica en los tres planos del espacio. Realizada la correccion oclusal, procedemos a sustituir dientes ausentes, mediante implantes y protesis fijas. El Periodoncista, mantiene un control constante de la salud de los tejidos de soporte, durante todas las fases de la terapia multidisciplinaria.

Guided Bone Regeneration Using a Titanium Membrane at Implant Placement: A Case Report and Literature Discussion

Guided Bone Regeneration Using a Titanium Membrane at Implant Placement: A Case Report and Literature Discussion
Reconstruction of the oral supporting tissues lost by disease or trauma is essential to tooth replacement with dental implant therapy. This treatment requires evidence based augmentative procedures combined with up-to-date and current techniques. Guided bone regeneration (GBR) aims to initialize this process of alveolar ridge reconstruction by utilizing biologically active and supportive materials best coupled to the body’s healing processes. The use of nonresorbable, titanium membranes can achieve GBR by ensuring graft stability and space maintenance so as to ensure optimal neovascularization. Hereafter is a case report of a ridge defect reconstructed at implant placement, with the rationale and current, evidence-based literature discussed.

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.
