Bone Grafting Assessment: Focus on the Anterior and Posterior Maxilla Utilizing Advanced 3-D Imaging Technologies Bone Grafting Assessment: Focus on the Anterior and Posterior Maxilla Utilizing Advanced 3-D Imaging Technologies

Summary:

As dental implant reconstruction has evolved into a mainstream alternative to replace missing teeth, bone grafting techniques have also evolved as an ancillary procedure for site development, sinus augmentation, and guided bone regeneration. Concurrently, imaging technologies have been developed which allow unsurpassed inspection of the dental alveolar complex, providing clinicians with innovative tools to plan for dental implant reconstruction. The ability to diagnose and treat dental implants have been forever changed by the ability to assess patient anatomy using Computed Tomography (CT), Cone Beam (CBCT), and interactive treatment planning software within the universal standard "language" of data called DICOM (Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine). This increased ability has been expanded to include appraisal of bone grafting receptor and donor sites through innovations in the interpretation of three dimensional data. In the completely edentulous mandible or maxilla, the use of CBCT technology is an essential tool for assessing anatomy in preparation for implants or grafting. The ability to visualize the extent of a defect from various angles, views, and 3-D reconstructions has helped to define a new set of diagnostic paradigms. A two-dimensional panoramic reconstruction of the maxilla can provide a good scout film of the anatomy; however, as a two-dimensional modality, it has inherent limitations and distortion. The right and left maxillary alveolar bone height can be approximated, and the relative size of the bilateral maxillary sinuses or extent of pnuematization can be assessed in relation to the underlying bone and nasal cavity. However, it is not until all possible two-dimensional and 3D views have been examined that the actual bone anatomy can be appreciated and assessed in relation to the planned reconstruction.

Subclassification and Clinical Management of Extraction Sockets with Labial Dentoalveolar Dehiscence Defects

Subclassification and Clinical Management of Extraction Sockets with Labial Dentoalveolar Dehiscence Defects
Immediate implant therapy involving implants placed into intact Type 1 extraction sockets has become a consistent clinical technique. The classification of Type 2 extraction sockets, where the mucosal tissues are present but there is a midfacial osseous dehiscence defect, has been described according to the extent of the buccal bone plate absence. The literature has offered different techniques in the treatment of Type 2 sockets; however, the extent of the defect has never been defined or delineated.

Intraoral Autogenous Block Onlay Bone Grafting for ExtensiveReconstruction of Atrophic Maxillary Alveolar Ridges

Intraoral Autogenous Block Onlay Bone Grafting for ExtensiveReconstruction of Atrophic Maxillary Alveolar Ridges
Autologous bone grafting used with dental implants was originally described by Bränemarketal in 1975, and is now a well-accepted procedure in oral and maxillofacial rehabilitation.Placement of an endosseous implant requires sufficient bone volume for complete bone coverage. Furthermore, the pattern of ridge resorption contributes to an unfavorable maxillomandibular relationship, requires angulations of the implants and/or angled abutments, and affects the proximity of adjacent facial concavities(maxillary sinus, nasal cavity) and vital structures(mandibular nerve).

Surgical Management of Posterior Maxilla Premium Member Content

Surgical Management of Posterior Maxilla
Replacement of missing teeth with dental Implants in the posterior maxilla presents unique challenges due to maxillary sinus, less quality of bone, and increased occlusal load. The surgical objectives to meet functional and aesthetic goals include enhancement of both quantity and quality of bone as well as ideal placement of dental implants for restorations that mimic nature. In this presentation, Dr. H. Ryan Kazemi discusses current surgical techniques in implant site development in the posterior maxilla including extraction site grafting, sinus lift, bi-directional bone graft, and osseodensification for bone management.

Combination Therapies in the Esthetic Zone: Steps for Success Premium Member Content

Combination Therapies in the Esthetic Zone: Steps for Success
This presentation will cover the critical aspects to consider for deciding the sequence and implementation of combination therapies. Successful esthetic zone treatment must begin with a well thought-out space management plan. This plan involves a three dimensional adjustment of the periodontal attachment, with a possibility of root submergence and partial extraction technique. Following this, a decision is made concerning the timing and position of implant placement, and an adequate hard tissue foundation can be restored using GBR with titanium mesh and collagen membrane. On top of this base a more efficient soft tissue augmentation and adjustment completes the requirements for success in the esthetic zone.
