Innovative Technique for Ridge Augmentation Using SonicWeld RX Rigid Resorbable Barrier System - Part 3 of 5

Description:
In this third of a 5 part series, Dr. Gerhard Iglhaut describes the science as well as the step-by-step techniques for utilizing an innovative new resorbable rigid membrane and fixation system for ridge augmentation. This approach utilizes the Resorb-X polymer as a totally new method of craniomaxillofacial applications which consists of pure poly D, L-lactic acid (PDLLA) to isolate an osseous defect for guided bone regeneration (GBR). The advantages result from achieving an extremely stable and space preserving membrane for GBR.

Excelent presentation

Matt Hauck - (10/26/2011 12:57 PM)

For course information, see the KLS Martin Group page on Dental XP - Dr. Iglhaut will be lecturing and directing a hands on course in January at the USC International Symposium, as well as many courses in Germany!

Great stuff! Worthwhile.

See part 5 for vertical augmentation technique - also for more on the interaction of bone and sonicwelding process reference: Pilling E, Mai R, Theissig F, et al: An experimental in vivo analysis of the resorption to ultrasound activated pins (Sonicweld) and standard biodegradable screws (ResorbX) in sheep.

Jay; Vibrations not heat. I have a featured video on XP using this technique and it works very well.
regards Dr. Salama

Jay Lutsky - (2/16/2011 10:45 AM)

Very interesting technique. Any concerns related to ultrasonic heat that is generated and, if so, how can we minimize this complication?

Wleed Haq - (12/23/2010 3:47 PM)

Looking forward to seeing some vertical augmentation cases using this technique

Minimally Invasive Approaches for Managing Deficient Sites in Esthetic Implant Dentistry Premium Member Content

Minimally Invasive Approaches for Managing Deficient Sites in Esthetic Implant Dentistry
When considering esthetic dental implant therapy, preservation or further enhancement of the available tissue support may provide an improved esthetic outcome with less associated morbidity and treatment duration. Nevertheless, reconstruction of compromised sites due to lost hard and soft tissue volume is often inevitable in the anterior zone. Substantial ridge deficiencies demand more complex grafting procedures with an increased level of invasiveness and subsequent tissue alterations.

GBR with Individualized Titanium Meshes Premium Member Content

GBR with Individualized Titanium Meshes
According to several authors, Guided bone regeneration is a procedure needed in half of the dental rehabilitations with dental implants. Due to this reality, digital dentistry become an important tool allowing us to be more precise and less invasive. By printing customized titanium meshes based on the patients bone defects, we can now predict the exact volume needed to be regenerate and create a specific device that will help to maintain the space. This takes CAD CAM dentistry to the next level, allowing more predictability in every step of the way, from bone regeneration till prosthetic rehabilitation. techniques more predictable. The authors describe a new guided bone regeneration protocol based on the use of digital planning and fabrication of printed 3D titanium meshes, rigid devices that protect mechanically the scaffold, design over the patient CT scan.

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.

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.

A Fixed Whole-Mouth Rehabilitation Utilizing Natural Abutments and Implants: Treatment Concepts and Clinical Realization
A 45-year-old female patient presented to the clinic with a request to treat her deteriorating dentition that had been reconstructed 15 years ago with fixed restorations. Clinical examination revealed fixed partial dentures cemented to natural abutments in the maxilla, whereas telescopic restorations were cemented to natural abutments bilaterally in the mandible. The treatment plan included a whole-mouth rehabilitation utilizing natural teeth and implants. As the patient declined any surgical augmentation…
