Titanium Mesh and it's Role in Bone Augmentation; A Clinical Review

Description:
Different surgical procedures have been proposed in reconstruction of deficient alveolar ridges for placing dental implants in optimum prosthetic and esthetic position. In all procedures it is important to provide optimum stability for space maintenance three dimentionally and achieving adequate reconstruction of bone. Cell-occlusive membranes showed very good results obtaining great quantity of regenerated bone. However, they have inconveniences such as low stiffness for maintaining the contour of the regenerated sites, and a high risk of infection after wound dehiscence and barrier exposure especially in non-resorbables. Titanium mesh is one of the alternatives in this field which not only it stabilize the graft materials but also protects the area from mechanical loads. The improved stiffness using Ti-mesh compared with cell-occlusive membranes permits to obtain predictable results in both lateral and vertical bone augmentation. One of the inconveniences of titanium mesh which has been reported is the exposure of it but on the other hand the benefit in comparison to non resorbable membranes is that there is no need for removal and the risk of infection is very low. In this lecture different cases will be presented and clinical points to be considered in using titanium mesh will be highlighted.

Dear Arwa, exposure in 2 weeks after Ti mesh augmentations can have many etiologies such as : tension in flap, not achieveing a connective tissue to connective tissue attachments at the border of the flaps, and sharpnedges of meshbadjacent to he marging of the flap. You can follow your patient and checknevery 2-: weeks. Ask the patient to rinse the area and keep it clean but some part of superficial graft material will resorb due to exposure. Regards

Hi, Omid. I had titanium mesh exposure and here is a summary of the case case history: severe periodontal loss around the upper maxillary central incisors case management: extraction of #18 and #19 #18 has buccal wall defect extending to the apex after soft tissue healing (8 weeks), bone augmentation with titanium mesh was performed to max. anterior area. graft material: allograft Platelet rich fibrin was also applied to the area Complication: mesh exposure on the palatal side of the flap, no infection. how to manage the case? now it's 2-week follow-up

Hi Mohammad Thanks for the question I usually prescribe 0.12% CHX but also CHX /NaF Gels by TePe which patient can apply it exactly at the area of exposure

Omid Moghaddas - (12/5/2015 2:56 PM)

Thanks Howard. Omar ,there are many articles available ,these are two of them : Management of the exposure of e-PTFE membranes in guided bone regeneration. Verardi S, et al. Pract Proced Aesthet Dent. 2007 Management of d-PTFE membrane exposure for having final clinical success. Maridati PC, et al. J Oral Implantol. 2015

Great Presentation Omid. Thank you

omar mohamed - (12/4/2015 4:17 AM)

Are there any articles or references explaining management of membrane exposure?

tahere pourseyediyan - (8/12/2015 3:19 AM)

Thanks for excellent presentation

mohammad jahri - (7/9/2014 11:13 AM)

HI omid, thanks for the nice presentation. my question is what kind of chlorhexidine oral rinse instruction do you give to your patient w/ timesh exposure (specifically on the area of the exposure)?

omid moghaddas - (12/10/2012 1:09 PM)

Dear colin.my screw systems are from jeil company and biohorizon,most of the time i use macro meshes but in cases with thin biotypes or when i augment soft tissue simultaneously i prefer to use micro meshes.in the exposures i instruct my patient to rinse the area with chlorhexidine and i wont remove the mesh .in the cases which i use ti meshes, usually i do a little overfilling of the defect with bone grafts to prevent volume loss in the case of exposure.

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.

Gaining Horizontal and Vertical Bone with Mineralized Bone Particulate, rh-BMP2 and Resorbable Ultrasonic-Applied Rigid Barriers Premium Member Content

Gaining Horizontal and Vertical Bone with Mineralized Bone Particulate, rh-BMP2 and Resorbable Ultrasonic-Applied Rigid Barriers
The use of titanium mesh has been well described, but so has the complications of removal and exposure. Bioresorbable barriers are now available which can be molded into any desired three-dimensional form, creating a rigid and resorbable construct that is secured to to the bone using ultrasonic energy. This unique solution has been successfully used to create the proper environment for both large lateral and vertical ridge augmentations for situations previously only treated with block grafting or distraction. Dr. Cummings will share his experience as well as the key soft tissue techniques that are critical for the success of any large augmentation.

Combination Therapies in the Esthetic Zone: Steps for Success
This presentation will cover the critical aspects to consider for deciding the sequence and implementation of combination therapies. Successful esthetic zone treatment must begin with a well thought-out space management plan. This plan involves a three dimensional adjustment of the periodontal attachment, with a possibility of root submergence and partial extraction technique. Following this, a decision is made concerning the timing and position of implant placement, and an adequate hard tissue foundation can be restored using GBR with titanium mesh and collagen membrane. On top of this base a more efficient soft tissue augmentation and adjustment completes the requirements for success in the esthetic zone.

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.

Intraoral Autogenous Block Onlay Bone Grafting for ExtensiveReconstruction of Atrophic Maxillary Alveolar Ridges
Autologous bone grafting used with dental implants was originally described by Bränemarketal in 1975, and is now a well-accepted procedure in oral and maxillofacial rehabilitation.Placement of an endosseous implant requires sufficient bone volume for complete bone coverage. Furthermore, the pattern of ridge resorption contributes to an unfavorable maxillomandibular relationship, requires angulations of the implants and/or angled abutments, and affects the proximity of adjacent facial concavities(maxillary sinus, nasal cavity) and vital structures(mandibular nerve).
