It seems both ti-reinforced membrane and ti mesh users like to cover with another membrane (resorbable) to prevent exposure. Nice to know.

mansour mirzaie - (9/20/2011 2:49 PM)

thank you for the nice presentation dear Dr.ishikawa.titanium mesh is a nice membrane ,easy to place but hard to remove.how do you remove the membrane ?

Milo Garcia Tempone - (3/7/2010 3:08 PM)

Thank you for sharing this nice technique. Where and how can we purchase these titanium membranes.

Mark Neale - (12/3/2009 8:15 PM)

Great results. Thanks for sharing. How were the mesh and membranes stablized?

Tomohiro Ishikawa - (6/16/2009 5:54 AM)

James, yes it is a little difficult to remove the Titanium mesh.I now always use cross-linked collagen membrane to cover the mesh in compliance with the accepted theory of GBR. Sometimes the mesh is covered with newly formed bone, in this case we have to use burs or chisels to remove the bone, before removing the mesh. On occasion, there is a thin soft tissue layer under the membrane. In this case, I use a blade to separate the tissue from the titanium mesh. In answer to your other question,I feel that it shouldn't be necessary to ever remove regenerated tissue.

Tomohiro Ishikawa - (6/16/2009 5:21 AM)

Maurice, I agree that PRGF,BMP or PDGF would have a positive influence on new bone formation. In addition, PRGF and PDGF would enhance soft tissue healing; which in turn, would reduce the chance of post-operative complications.

Paul, Thank you for your comment. I agree with you, a more stable video would be easier to watch.

How difficult is it to remove the titanium mesh at the uncovering stage?

Does it leave a somewhat bumpy ridge that you'll have to smooth down with a bur?

Maurice Salama - (5/17/2009 7:16 AM)

Amazing. Great surgical technique. Fitting the titanium membrane today can be done presurgically on a stereolithographic 3D model. Perhaps this would be a good indication for a bioactive modifier incorporated into the bone graft like PRGF or rhBMP?

Esthetic Management for Compromised Extraction Sites - Part 2 of 2 Premium Member Content

Esthetic Management for Compromised Extraction Sites - Part 2 of 2
Missing soft tissue is the main reason for compromised results in the aesthetic zone. But since the soft tissue has to be supported by a sufficient amount of bone, our focus has also to be on bone. Due to the fact that no bone-preservation technique (at the time of tooth extraction) available today, gives us the perfect result we need, augmentation procedures are still needed. Appropriate bone and soft tissue engineering in all three dimensions enhances the aesthetic performance of long-lasting restorations that blend in well and emerge from the periimplant sulcus in harmony with the neighboring teeth.

Advanced Bone Grafting Techniques: Part 1 - Autogenous Bone Blocks in the Reconstruction of the Atrophic Mandibular Ridge Premium Member Content

Advanced Bone Grafting Techniques: Part 1 - Autogenous Bone Blocks in the Reconstruction of the Atrophic Mandibular Ridge
This lecture will describe the use of autologous onlay block bone grafting for reconstruction of moderate to severe atrophic posterior mandibular alveolar ridge. This will include a discussion of the various options to this form of grafting, such as Short implants, Lingual positioning, nerve re-positioning, distraction osteogenesis, and GBR. The Mutli-Tier onlay Bone Graft Technique will be highlighted in this presentation. Additionally, a review of a recently submitted research paper of long term follow up of implants placed into autologous bone blocks harvested from the mandibular ramus, retromolar and sympheseal areas will be discussed. A description of surgical donor harvest sites in the mandible will also be performed as well as post op healing of these sites. Additional time will be spent reviewing causes of failure with bone blocks and implants placed into these sites.

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.

Reconstruction of Damaged Fresh Sockets by Connective-Bone Sliver Graft From the Maxillary Tuberosity, to Enable Immediate Dentoalveolar Restoration - A Clinical Case
This paper describes a procedure for immediate loading of an implant following tooth extraction, in a socket presenting severe damage to the vestibular bone plate and gingival recession in the region of the upper central incisors. The procedures of extraction of the tooth, immediate insertion of the implant, connective- bone graft from the maxillary tuberosity and immediate restoration were shown to be a predictable treatment alternative. These procedures led to restoration of the tooth, bone and gingival structures in a single surgical stage and to maintenance of the favorable esthetic and functional result 24 months afterwards.

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.
