The Science and Technology Supporting Graft Material Selection

Description:
A wide variety of grafting materials is currently available. Understanding the right indications and the possible limitations of certain materials can be challenging. The main objective of this course is to provide guidelines for selection of the adequate materials to be used for specific indications in order to maximize treatment predictability.

Hector, Osbert, Nick, James, Andy, Felipe, Giuseppe, Henry and Hector; thank you for your kind and constructive comments. I'm glad that you all enjoyed this short presentation.

Kenneth; excellent question. Alloderm (and Alloderm GBR) or other tissue-derived membranes (CopiOs, CopiOs Extend, Pericardium) are considered to be long-lasting absorbable membranes and very adequate for GBR techniques. They work better with mineralized allografts. They have many advantages over non-absorbable membranes (improved handling, less post-op complications). In terms of "barrier effect", they are your closest option to non-absorbable membranes.

Maurice; the future is bright for Biologics. Osteoinduction and pro-angiogenic factors for sure are welcome but they still lack osteoconductivity, so they depend on a good scaffold or tenting device. We still need to find the ideal carrier to prevent the biologic material from being washed out too quickly or the carrier blocking osteoconduction. Once we find the perfect balance, the game will change for sure.

Step-By-Step Surgical Video of Horizontal and Vertical Defects - Part 1 of 2
We are aiming for minimal invasive techniques for the benefit of our patients. Nevertheless, there are many occasions in which we need to repair the anatomy and topography of the atrophic site for better positioning of implants and for their longevity. This step by step surgical technique video presents the treatment sequence for recovering severe vertical and horizontal posterior maxillary atrophy for optimal implant placement.
Vertical augmentation is achieved by using:
First the anatomy: performing sinus augmentation via lateral wall technique.
Second, autologous bone block graft for further recovery of the vertical deficiency decreasing the enlarged inter-maxillary distance. Horizontal augmentation is achieved by using autologous bone block. 
Part II will depict implant placement and soft tissue manipulations.

Soft Tissue Conversion For Increased Predictability of Bone Graft in Large Ridge Defects
In this video, Dr. H. Ryan Kazemi presents a technique for conversion of thin tissue biotype to thick tissue biotype improving the quality and quantity of soft tissue necessary for predictable bone augmentation of large ridge defects. Improved soft tissue thickness will decrease risk of tissue dehiscence and provide a better quality of tissue for flap repositioning and suturing.
