As I prepare to do part 2 of the series on socket therapy, I'll try to give some of my thoughts into your question. The question of cost of regenerating in an extraction socket is in terms of dollars, bone and/or soft tissue loss or regeneration on adjacent teeth and time. We know from my own work as well as that of Drs. Sottosanti and Anson about the simple, predictable use of calcium sulfate and demineralized, freeze-dried bone for socket regeneration. They are able to maintain the calcium sulfate barrier in place more effectively than others. Over their same mix of DFDBA/CS, I use non-expanded PTFE barriers. The advantage of their technique is that there is no disruption of the interdental gingival fibers. Additionally, calcium sulfate will enable epithelialization over the top of the barrier. Other materials, pure-phase beta TCP have also been shown to be fully resorbable and replaced by vital bone in the time frame desired for implant placement, 4 - 6 months after extraction. When the socket has sufficient bone remaining, a PTFE barrier alone can be used over a blood clot with similar results. All of these techniques enable vital bone formation and the following of healing with conventional dental radiography. The use of other materials that don't lose their radio-opacity over time have been shown in animal studies to delay healing and not to allow the surgeon or restorative dentist to estimate the level of socket healing.
Growth factors - There's an alphabet city of them out there. PRF, PRGF, BMP, VEGF. Of all of these, the most expensive and best studied so far is BMP. Can we improve our predictability of socket regeneration by the use of close to $1000 worth of material as compared to DFDBA/CS? Those studies remain to and NEED to be done. There are many concerns about BMP - dosing, swelling, containment,... SO, there's no magic bullet, but many ways to skin the cat WITH biologic analysis of the results out there.

Ashwath,
A well reasoned and presented perspective. However, you left out the decision making process itself from your a,b, c list of considerations in achieving "targetted and/or desirable final results". Unfortunately, "cost" is often a factor that must be considered for most practitioners and practices. Just look at how many practitioners still choose to TP 3-unit bridges rather than an implant, even in an ideal extraction site environment. While I believe most practitioners are truly desirous of achieving this "targetted and/or desirable final results", right or wrong, limited insurance benefits, lab fees, sharing revenue with the surgeon etc... are all factors that often creep into the decision making process.
If on the other hand, a therapeutic protocol or technique is both clinically beneficial and cost effective, from a practice management perspective, then more practitioners may more readily include it in their TP considerations. Today, extraction site preservation is cost effective because most dental insurances include benefits for ridge augmentation techniques, material delivery systems are easier to use and the techniques that Dr. Horowitz outlined are more predictable and have less complications requiring fewer follow-ups.

Ashwath Gowda - (4/11/2009 10:02 PM)

You are mentioning "cost for the dentist" in preserving ridge or reconstructing a resorbed alveolar ridge... you are also implying that cost(dentist's costs) as one of the considerations in achieving "targetted and/or desirable final results"...this, with reference to the materials/supplies(grafting materials)
Comment: Let's suppose that, there exists a "magic material" (it does not exist as of to-day)costing several thousands of dollars, and it always produces nothing but the "desired results" under suitable surgicle technique and clinical approach...
don't you think that, either you and or I will be the first ones to present it to our patients? You would have produced the first such clical slide by now!... in other words, as of to-day,
A. Required knowledge (of available materials), B. Clinical/surgical skills and C. Experience/expertise of individual operator/s is entirely responsible for the final results... not the "costs" of materials including labour!

Would love to hear from some members about how they choose to manage extraction sites?
What grafting products? Immediate or delayed implant placement? Any membranes or bioactive modifiers?

Maurice Salama - (3/21/2009 2:33 PM)

Just watched the video by Dr. Horowritz on extraction site management. Outstanding job and very educational. It maybe the best buccal shelf harvest educational video I've ever seen. Dr. Pikos does a great job describing the key issues involved in this procedure. Take a look.

Advances in Hard and Soft Tissue Management Using 3D Printing Technology
It is becoming rare today to come across simple cases in Periodontics; our specialty has come to face complex cases where hard and soft tissue deficiencies are quite common. These suggested protocols and schematic approaches were developed to help the surgical practitioner visualize and divide the problem into a predictable step-by-step workflow. The utilization of 3-D printed CBCT studies of the treatment planned surgical sites was shown to be integral in patient care and clinical outcomes. Every step is dictated by biology; all incision designs, flap management techniques, and biomaterials used have been selected to maximize the blood supply in the area and minimize trauma to the vascular network that nourishes our surgical site.

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.

Negative Factors for Soft & Hard Tissue Maintenance Premium Member Content

Negative Factors for Soft & Hard Tissue Maintenance
Maintaining the bone is the most difficult challenge in implantology (bone grafted or native bone around implants). If a tissue want to live long, it has to follow 2 conditions: The first condition is to organize a full blood supply.. However, it’s not enough. The solution for the long term stability is to try to organize the stability of the blood supply.. by the respect of several biologic conditions. Almost of these conditions are explained in this lecture. We introduce here the new concept to avoid the reduction of blood supply by the periosteal incision: the soft brushing technique is the first technique which allows a very large increase of the flap without any incision: the flap closure without tension but without any incision.

Interpositional Bone Grafts to Treat the Posterior Atrophic Mandible Premium Member Content

Interpositional Bone Grafts to Treat the Posterior Atrophic Mandible
This presentation analyzes the interpositional bone graft or inlay technique, discussing the reconstructive surgical approach. Horizontal osteotomy with the interposition of bone in the form of a “sandwich” involves raising a coronal osteotomized segment of the mandible, which is still attached to the lingual periosteum, and interpositioning a block bone graft. This technique guarantees a dual vascular supply to the inlay graft from the lingual periosteum and from the residual bone; it also allows optimum use of the native basal bone, which should be less prone to resorption. The advantages and disadvantages of the inlay technique are compared with other commonly used augmentation techniques in the management of posterior mandibular atrophies.

Peridontal Osseous Surgery and Root Resective Therapy

Peridontal Osseous Surgery and Root Resective Therapy
Historically, osseous surgery was performed to eliminate infected bone. Early in the 20th century clinicians realized that periodontally affected bone was not actually infected. Instead of an invasive bacterial infection, chronic inflammation was responsible for bone destruction. This finding changed the rationale for periodontal therapy and led to modern concepts of osseous surgery. Currently accepted approaches are based on guidelines, parameters, and definitions published by many highly respected…

Reconstruction of a Horizontal and Vertical Bone defect using The Cortical Lamina Technique

Reconstruction of a Horizontal and Vertical Bone defect using The Cortical Lamina Technique
For many years guided bone regeneration has been a challenge in oral and implant surgery. Many techniques and devices have been used in trying to regenerate and reconstruct resorbed edentulous ridges. The literature in the field is scarce due to the impossibility to perform RCT on such lesions, therefore the judgement of the international community is based on case reports and retrospective studies. In the last ten years a new device has proved to be quite successful and predictable on top of showing a very low morbidity, a membrane made of xenogeneic collagenated bone with features that are very different from any other material used in the past. This paper will show the application of the cortical lamina technique where a vertical and horizontal defect was corrected and successfully restored.
