The Mandibular Retromolar Area as a Donor Site in Maxillofacial Bone Grafting - Surgical Notes The Mandibular Retromolar Area as a Donor Site in Maxillofacial Bone Grafting - Surgical Notes

Summary:

Bone harvesting from the mandibular retromolar area represents an attractive approach to obtaining corticocancellous bone blocks for reconstruction of a deficient alveolar ridge. Knowledge of the local anatomy, adherence to proper surgical techniques, and judicious use of appropriate surgical armamentarium are paramount to minimizing operative hazards. The objective of this article is to review pertinent surgical notes related to the safe harvesting of corticocancellous bone blocks from the retromolar area using a trephine bur technique.

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.

Long-Term Block Graft Stability in Thin Periodontal Biotype Patients - A Clinical and Tomographic Study

Long-Term Block Graft Stability in Thin Periodontal Biotype Patients - A Clinical and Tomographic Study
Autogenous block grafting seems to be a predictable treatment modality to reconstruct alveolar ridge defects in the long term. A thin periodontal biotype did not seem to affect the volume of transplanted bone for the population studied.

Multitier Technique for Bone Augmentation Using Intraoral Autogenous Bone Blocks

Multitier Technique for Bone Augmentation Using Intraoral Autogenous Bone Blocks
Brånemarket al1 originally described autologous bone grafts used with dental implants,and they are now a well-accepted procedure in oral and maxillofacial rehabilitation. Placement of an end osseous implant requires sufficient bone volume for complete bone coverage.Further-more,the patter no fridge resorption ,which contributes to a nun favorable maxillo mandibular relationship,requires angulation of the implant and/or angled abutment,and affects the proximity of adjacent facial concavities (maxillary sinus,nasal cavity)and vital structures(mandibular nerve).

Current Concepts in Bioactivity and Regeneration
An injury to the tissue instantly stimulates the healing process. To heal properly, we need three elements: scaffolds, cells and growth factors. If one of these three elements are missing there will be no tissue regeneration. Plasma rich in growth factors (Endoret® (PRGF®) technology, enables clinicians to apply autologous growth factors and a fibrin scaffold in a simple, safe and effective method. The Endoret® (PRGF®) stimulates the tissue-building cells to achieve regeneration. An optimal alveolar regeneration is characterized by fast haemostasis, adequate inflammation, stem cell mobilization and differentiation, rapid soft tissue closure of the socket and correct tissue regeneration. The adequate management of the extraction socket will determine the final outcome of implant-supported restorations.

Bioengineering and Bone Grafting in Deficient Anterior Sites: A Case Presentation Premium Member Content

Bioengineering and Bone Grafting in Deficient Anterior Sites: A Case Presentation
Dr. Pikos shares a case presentation elucidating the need for bioengineering and osseous grafting to overcome severe deficiencies in anterior sites prior to implant placement. The case is that of a 19 year old caucasian female that presented with congenitally missing maxillary lateral incisors. Both sites were deficient in alveolar width. Subsequent treatment included a single ramus buccal shelf block bone graft that was utilized for bony augmentation along with mineralized allograft and PRGF with collagen membrane. This was followed 4 months later by two 3.8 mm diameter BioHorizons tapered internal Laser-Lok implants. Four year follow up is included.

The Use of SonicWeld® Ultrasonically Fabricated Barriers for Enhanced Outcomes in Guided Bone Regeneration
KLS Martin has developed a unique bioresorbable guided bone regeneration barrier which can be molded into any desired three-dimensional form. Using a combination of thermoplastic and ultrasonic energies, these barriers have been successfully used to create the proper environment for both large lateral and vertical ridge augmentations for situations previously only treated with block grafting or distraction. This course will outline the basic science, clinical techniques and outcomes of the SonicWeld technique.

Positive & Negative Factors in Stem Cells & Wound Healing: Solutions for Long Term Stability Premium Member Content

Positive & Negative Factors in Stem Cells & Wound Healing: Solutions for Long Term Stability
The main factor for soft and hard tissue healing is the speed and quality of new vascularization. This lecture will present all the positive and negative factors who control the angiogenesis, blood supply and bone metabolism: -Biological factors as vit. D and cholesterol have to be checked before the surgery -The management of the flaps with sutures is one the main factor for the bone and soft tissue maintenance.. -The soft brushing technique is a new technique which increases the flap without periosteal incision nor bleeding. -Careful Implant placement without too much torque, specially in cortical bone or grafted bone at the re-entry.. -The A-PRF liquid and i-PRF are solutions to reduce the mobility of the granules (sticky bone) with an improvement of angiogenesis The use of growth factors is a stimulation of angiogenesis. The prevention of the negative factors will allow us to achieve the long term stability.

Advanced Bone Grafting Techniques: Part 2 - Autogenous Bone Blocks in the Reconstruction of the Atrophic Maxillary Ridge Premium Member Content

Advanced Bone Grafting Techniques: Part 2 - Autogenous Bone Blocks in the Reconstruction of the Atrophic Maxillary Ridge
This lecture will describe the use of autologous onlay block bone grafting for reconstruction of moderate to severe atrophic maxillary alveolar ridge. This will include a discussion of the various options to this form of grafting, such as short implants, maxillary sinus augmentation, sub-nasal elevation procedure, connective tissue grafting and soft tissue manipulation, Le-Fort I down fracture/osteotomy and the use of progenitor cells: bone marrow aspirating concentrated. 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.
