The Palatal Bone Block - An Innovative Autogenous Harvest Site

Description:
Autogenous bone is the gold standard of guided bone regeneration. Autogenous bone blocks allow us to build more bone more predictably with less complications. Harvesting of bone blocks from the traditional sites like the ramus or symphysis has a high rate of morbidity and the need for second surgical entry often reduces the patients acceptance of treatment. The Maxillary Palate is an area which has excellent cortical bone which if harvested correctly can often produce substantial autogenous bone from same area and incision as the placement of the implant. It is also a site with very little morbidity due to the overlying thick mucoperiosteal flap as well as the lack of muscle pull in the area. It also provides a one site surgery which is a far more attractive treatment option for many patients. This lecture will take you through the step by step technique of harvesting and fixing the bone blocks harvested from the palate. Flap design and suturing techniques will also be covered.

Howard great video I have learned a lot. I always enjoy your teaching style. In this lecture you showed how this can be used at the time of placement. Can this technique be used on implants that have been placed and integrated but are missing the facial bone.

Thank you Sok. You can fill the palatal area with whatever you want it is a closed defect so it generally fills without anything. I only place xenograft if I have a situation where the defect is deep or very large. But collagen is good and will do no harm. thanks for the question

From Sok Chea, Cambodia Great presentation. I really love your presentation in Dentalxp, Florida. Question : Is it possible to use collagen sponge to fill the space at palatal donor site?

Thank you Zaid I remember you well. Thank you for the kind words

Hi Benedict we teach this protocol at our academy in south Africa. You can also get an article I wrote on it on the website just look for the articles under my name and you will find it and down load it. regards Howard

Hi, I am over a year late from the posted date of the video. I really really like the concept of one site surgery. Please if possible, let me know where else I can read up on this surgical protocol or any recommended course/lecture so I can learn more. Thank you very much

Hi Omar you cannot use a trephine with a smaller internal diameter of 5mm as it will not fit around the implant. the ideal is a 6mm internal diameter or larger and it is ideal to have a few trephines as you need to remove the bone according to the defect on the buccal. I have trephines from internal 5 external diameter 6 right up to a 10mm external diameter which has a 9mm internal diameter. please remember that it is the internal diameter that will give you the size of the block.

do you recommend diameter 8 trephine or diameter 6 could suffice? i mean if i am going to purchase one which is better?

Managing Esthetic Implant Complications Premium Member Content

Managing Esthetic Implant Complications
Dental implant success today is judged not only by osseointegration but also by bone, tissue stability and of course long term esthetic results. Cosmetic predictability can often be difficult to attain, and esthetic implant failures can be multifactorial and patient management issues. Once esthetic implant failures occur, many cannot be fully corrected. Some complications must be addressed by an interdisciplinary dental team. In this summary of case reports, surgical considerations are provided, including cases of facial asymmetry/recession due to facial implant placement or bone loss resulting from technique/treatment failures, as well as papillary deficiencies. Restorative considerations for correcting failures are also discussed.

Manejo Integral de Maloclusion Clase III en Adulto, con Requerimientos Periodontales y Protesicos; Reporte de un caso clinico
En nuestra clinica observamos un aumento de pacientes adultos con problemas esqueletales, compromiso periodontal y necesidades protesicas. Debemos recurrir a la interconsulta con el periodoncista, protesista y cirujano maxilofacial, para la correccion del caso, prestando especial atencion al componente dentario, esqueletal y los tejidos blandos faciales del paciente. La cirugia ortognatica, que generalmente la realizamos luego de una preparacion ortodoncica, permite corregir discrepancias en el adulto y restaurar la funcion y estetica en los tres planos del espacio. Realizada la correccion oclusal, procedemos a sustituir dientes ausentes, mediante implantes y protesis fijas. El Periodoncista, mantiene un control constante de la salud de los tejidos de soporte, durante todas las fases de la terapia multidisciplinaria.

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.
