Summary:

Dentistry has entered an era in which patients no longer need to accept an edentulous or partially edentulous condition, or one in which their candidacy for tooth structure replacement (ie, implants with subsequent restoration) must be dismissed because of insufficient alveolar bone volume, height, or width. The supporting bone can be preserved at the time of tooth extraction, or augmented at the time of case presentation, using a variety of available regenerative materials. Among them are mineralized human allograft bone and collagen membranes that can be placed in combination with specific growth factor complexes and implant designs. This article reviews the challenges associated with adequately preserving or augmenting the alveolar bone after tooth extraction or loss and before implant placement. The research and benefits to support using allogenic bone graft and membrane materials for such procedures are detailed, and 3 clinical cases are presented to demonstrate the clinically successful incorporation of these materials with the host tissues.

Socket Augmentation: Rationale and Technique
This article presents the rationale behind socket augmentation for future implant placement and describes a technique that has shown to not only facilitate tooth extraction with minimal damage to the surrounding anatomic structures, but also to improve alveolar bone quality and quantity.

Socket Gafting with the use of Autologous Bone - an Experimental Study in the Dog
In five beagle dogs, the distal roots of the third and fourth mandibular premolars were removed. The sockets in the right or the left jaw quadrant were grafted with either anorganic bovine bone or with chips of autologous bone harvested from the buccal bone plate. After 3 months of healing, biopsies of the experimental sites were sampled, prepared for buccal–lingual ground sections and examined with respect to size and composition.

Novel Technique for Alveolar Bone Augmentation; Introducing The "Bio-Bone-Block" Concept
This presentation will discuss the use of autologous onlay block bone grafting for reconstruction of moderate to severe maxillary and mandibular alveolar ridge deficiencies. In particular, emphasis on the “Bio-Bone-Block” concept and re-entry to the original donor site for a second block harvest, if necessary. We will also covers the use of progenitor cells (bone marrow aspirating concentrated) along with PRP and PPP for accelerated healing.

Complete Management of the Implant Site: From Simple Cases to Complex Situations
The health and the structure of the peri-implant tissue is vital for a long term prognosis of aesthetic and functional dental treatments. The prevalence of peri-implant diseases and recessions is a problem that must be overcome by a perfect treatment planning, along with a step-by-step design of the future restorations. When the clinician places an implant, he must consider the 3D positioning regarding the hard and soft tissue. When one decide to restore an implant, he must be aware of the gingival volume and it’s position. In this presentation, we want to show fully documented cases, from bone grafting, soft tissue enhancement, to final restorations.

Bone Augmentation & Vascular Enhancement Concepts: It’s Time to Make it Simple!
The purpose of this presentation is to make the participant think biology first and not mechanic first. A biological thinking will dramatically simplify vertical and/or horizontal bone augmentation procedures. We will also be introducing a new approach for the simplification of soft tissue handling: the Soft Brushing Technique, that will allow the coronal advancement of both buccal and lingual flaps, but also the palatal flap without the need for periosteal releasing incisions.

The Dual Zone Approach to Tooth Replacement in the Esthetic Zone Premium Member Content

The Dual Zone Approach to Tooth Replacement in the Esthetic Zone
Improvements in implant designs have helped advance successful immediate anterior implant placement into fresh extraction sockets. Clinical techniques described in this presentation will enable practitioners to achieve predictable esthetic success using a method that limits the amount of buccal contour change of the extraction site ridge and potentially enhances the thickness of the peri-implant soft tissues coronal to the implant-abutment interface. This approach involves atraumatic tooth removal without flap elevation, and placing a bone graft into the residual gap around an immediate fresh-socket anterior implant with a screw-retained provisional restoration acting as a prosthetic socket seal device. Long term follow up and evidence from scientific literature to support this concept will be described.
