It seems both ti-reinforced membrane and ti mesh users like to cover with another membrane (resorbable) to prevent exposure. Nice to know.

mansour mirzaie - (9/20/2011 2:49 PM)

thank you for the nice presentation dear Dr.ishikawa.titanium mesh is a nice membrane ,easy to place but hard to remove.how do you remove the membrane ?

Milo Garcia Tempone - (3/7/2010 3:08 PM)

Thank you for sharing this nice technique. Where and how can we purchase these titanium membranes.

Mark Neale - (12/3/2009 8:15 PM)

Great results. Thanks for sharing. How were the mesh and membranes stablized?

Tomohiro Ishikawa - (6/16/2009 5:54 AM)

James, yes it is a little difficult to remove the Titanium mesh.I now always use cross-linked collagen membrane to cover the mesh in compliance with the accepted theory of GBR. Sometimes the mesh is covered with newly formed bone, in this case we have to use burs or chisels to remove the bone, before removing the mesh. On occasion, there is a thin soft tissue layer under the membrane. In this case, I use a blade to separate the tissue from the titanium mesh. In answer to your other question,I feel that it shouldn't be necessary to ever remove regenerated tissue.

Tomohiro Ishikawa - (6/16/2009 5:21 AM)

Maurice, I agree that PRGF,BMP or PDGF would have a positive influence on new bone formation. In addition, PRGF and PDGF would enhance soft tissue healing; which in turn, would reduce the chance of post-operative complications.

Paul, Thank you for your comment. I agree with you, a more stable video would be easier to watch.

james kim - (6/11/2009 8:22 AM)

How difficult is it to remove the titanium mesh at the uncovering stage?

Does it leave a somewhat bumpy ridge that you'll have to smooth down with a bur?

Maurice Salama - (5/17/2009 7:16 AM)

Amazing. Great surgical technique. Fitting the titanium membrane today can be done presurgically on a stereolithographic 3D model. Perhaps this would be a good indication for a bioactive modifier incorporated into the bone graft like PRGF or rhBMP?

Regenerative Procedures for Implant Site Optimization: Establishing the Perio-Implant Interface
Emerging concepts in implant dentistry have allowed bone preservation to become a reality, thus reducing the need for extensive augmentation procedures. Nevertheless, clinicians are still confronted with atrophic defects that require complex regenerative strategies for dental implant rehabilitation. This presentation will focus on some of the essential elements for a predictable regenerative protocol in implant site development. A discussion will include the use of defect topography as a guide in choosing a suitable augmentation technique. Several considerations that allow for tension free wound closure will be reviewed. Furthermore, an evidence based approach in graft material selection will be presented. Clinical cases will then be reviewed, to demonstrate how to integrate the presented principles into daily clinical practice.

Biologic Strategies to Enhance Clinical and Aesthetic Success in Oral Implantology
This webinar will discuss clinical strategies for treatment of the complex implant site involving bone grafting and implant placement. Our understanding of cellular pathways, and our ability to control the wound response, expands our capacity to effect better aesthetic outcomes and compress treatment time. The reduction of the inflammatory phase of tissue regeneration speeds up osseointegration, prevents crestal bone loss, maintains papillary form, increases the density of peri-implant bone and increases tissue biotype. This enhanced tissue response allows us to predictably treat even the most complex surgical cases, compress time to final reconstruction, and to maintain these favorable tissue outcomes over an extended period of time. The use of dental implants with advanced biologic features and the incorporation autologous growth factors will be demonstrated.

Alloplastic Bone Substitutes Around Dental Implants
The repair of osseous defects has been a goal in dentistry for many decades. Subsequently, within the last several years, there has been an emergence of a new class of materials in dentistry referred to as synthetic bone. Finding the ideal bone substitute material has been the goal of researchers for many years. In attempting to achieve this ideal material, dental practitioners have tried with varying degrees of success: autogenous and demineralized freeze-dried bone, allografts of plastic, carbon…
