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.

Very good presentation and i feel confidence i can do this procedure in future

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

Howard Gluckman - (10/14/2011 4:40 AM)

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.

Surgical & Prosthodontic Team Approach: Bone Reconstruction with Fibula Graft, Case Report
Patients with benign tumors can and should be reconstructed immediately after removal of the tumor, if possible. In this brief presentation, Dr. Doñas shows a case where the surgical and prosthodontic team work together from the start and how it can impact the overall outcome for the patient and how certain prosthetic treatment modalities & issues can be including as a part of the surgical plan.

Efficiencies in Block Harvest and Fixation: Keys to Success Premium Member Content

Efficiencies in Block Harvest and Fixation: Keys to Success
Block grafts are indicated for the restoration of significant bone defects and site development for proper placement and support of dental implants. In this presentation, Dr. H. Ryan Kazemi will discuss the three key stages for successful block grafts: opening, placement, and closure, with specific emphasis on graft harvest and fixation. Approaches for preparing the recipient and donor sites, along with adaptation and fixation techniques for predictable results will be presented. In addition, Dr. Kazemi will review flap design and closure techniques critical to graft survival and healing.

Modern Implant Dentistry: Rules of Engagement in the Esthetic Zone - Part 1 of 2 Premium Member Content

Modern Implant Dentistry: Rules of Engagement in the Esthetic Zone - Part 1 of 2
This presentation will focus on the interdisciplinary relationship of the restorative dentist, periodontist and orthodontist to reconstruct the soft tissue foundation for all of these restorative options in anterior tooth replacement. The diagnosis of deficiencies as well as the varied treatment options will be discussed in detail. This includes periodontal crown lengthening, esthetic periodontal plastic soft tissue grafting procedures as well as prescription adjunctive orthodontic tooth movement to manipulate the soft tissue foundation prior to or subsequent with the restorative options of implants, bridges, or pontic replacement.

Combined Augmentation Therapies in the Esthetic Zone Premium Member Content

Combined Augmentation Therapies in the Esthetic Zone
The esthetic zone presents a far bigger challenge than any other area of the mouth. It is the one area that a patient has the ability to really scrutinize the work that has been done and anything that does not pass muster will quickly create problems in our practices. Uncompromising treatment planning is therefore essential to ensure the long term aesthetic stability of our esthetic cases. Treatment planning involves both bone and soft tissue therapy as both are critical for the stability. This lecture will highlife the importance of different treatment options as well as show numerous new techniques that are possible to achieve the results that both our patients and practitioners are proud of.

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.
