Summary:

The repair of osseous defects has been a goal in dentistry for many decades. Subsequently, within the last several years, there has been an emergence of a new class of materials in dentistry referred to as synthetic bone. Finding the ideal bone substitute material has been the goal of researchers for many years. In attempting to achieve this ideal material, dental practitioners have tried with varying degrees of success: autogenous and demineralized freeze-dried bone, allografts of plastic, carbon and the apatite compounds. Most importantly, the practitioner shouId be cognizant that presently, autografts stiII represent the gold standard and provide excellent osteoconductive scaffolding, although they do require a harvesting procedure. The ideal goal of bone regenerative therapy is the reconstruction of alveolar bone that has been lost due to disease or atrophy. Bone grafting is one of the therapeutic modalities employed to fulfill this goal. The objectives of this additive procedure are the restoration of lost alveolar bone and possibly the regeneration of a functional periodontal attachment apparatus around teeth and bone around dental implants. This article discusses bone grafting materials and introduces a new bone substitute material which can be effective in both the regeneration of previously lost bone and the preservation of existing bone after extraction of diseased teeth.

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.

A Bovine-Bone Mineral Block for the Treatment of Severe Ridge Deficiencies in the Anterior Region: A Clinical Case Report

A Bovine-Bone Mineral Block for the Treatment of Severe Ridge Deficiencies in the Anterior Region: A Clinical Case Report
A bovine-bone mineral block was used to treat a severe horizontal and vertical anterior ridge deficiency. Such a block can be shaped to conform to the defect, and it avoids the need for harvesting autogenous bone or fixation of the block with screws.

Treatment of the Extremely Atrophied Edentulous Maxilla Using Bone Marrow Stem Cells Premium Member Content

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.

Dimension of the Facial Bone Plate - Literature Review Series
In this first of the series, Dr. Henry Salama will review a group of articles related to the dimensions of the facial bone plate. He will suggest what can be taken away from these articles as well as how they may influence clinical decisions in the treatment of extraction sites and immediate implant placement. Your participation in the form of comments, questions and suggestions are welcomed and will help invigorate what is hoped to be a type of online community study hall.

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.

Modern Implant Dentistry: Rules of Engagement in the Esthetic Zone - Part 2 of 2
This presentation will focus on the interdisciplinary relationship of the restorative dentist, periodontist and orthodontist to reconstruct the soft tissue foundation for all of these restorative options in anterior tooth replacement. The diagnosis of deficiencies as well as the varied treatment options will be discussed in detail. This includes periodontal crown lengthening, esthetic periodontal plastic soft tissue grafting procedures as well as prescription adjunctive orthodontic tooth movement to manipulate the soft tissue foundation prior to or subsequent with the restorative options of implants, bridges, or pontic replacement.
