Vertical Bone Augmentation: Current Concepts and Techniques

Description:
The management of vertical bone loss has always posed as a challenge to implant dentistry. Various different techniques have been developed to vertically reconstruct the deficient alveolar ridge to allow for proper implant placement. However there is very little consensus as to what constitutes the ideal treatment to repair the deficient ridge. This lecture will review several approaches used for vertical bone augmentation and discuss the benefits and limitations of each. There will be special emphasis on the titanium mesh and inter-positional osteotomy techniques.

On the smile Osteotomy , is it completely seperated on th lingual. What is the fixation kit used

This video presentation is about the best I have seen so far at dental xp. Thanks and congratulations David!

good

Robert Wagner - (12/8/2012 1:44 PM)

great lecture. I am an OMFS, and have had similar experiences. The interpositional has been the most consistent graft technique for vertical height gain and stability for the posterior mandible My comment is that there are so many of these patients out there (posterior resorbed mandible) that I believe are being told that they can not get implants. I don't think the GP's and specialists are aware of some of these newer effective techniques

David Yarmand - (12/6/2012 9:55 PM)

Thank you everyone for all the great comments and questions. I will try to answer the last few in this one post. Regarding the question about the simplest technique: The tent pole procedure is perhaps the least invasive of the techniques discussed although I would have to qualify that statement as each of the various methods discussed has it's time and place and even the tent pole is not ideal in every clinical situation. As far as tension free closure around the mental foramen, the dissection inferior to the foramen is a split thickness incision which gives us plenty of release if need be. However, most times there is no need to gain extra slack as the tissue is usually tension free.

Mark Gutt - (12/4/2012 11:03 PM)

Informative presentation Dr. Yarmand! I wish I had seen it prior to today as I performed a combination interpositional graft (just as you described with fixation plate), but also added a lateral Regenaform bone graft with tent poles after decortication. I enjoyed your clear review of the different methods. Thank you so much. Dr. Mark Gutt

Antal Róka - (12/4/2012 7:41 AM)

Dear David, excellent video. How can you achieve tension free closure especially around mental foramen? Thanks.

Edison Louie - (12/2/2012 9:11 PM)

Dr.Yarmand, thank you for taking the time and effort to provide a current profile of vertical osseous graft techniques. Very well done and highly appreciated. Edison Louie

Band Ditto64 - (12/2/2012 11:14 AM)

Dr. Yarmand; The question for me is what is the SIMPLEST procedure you have in your armamentarium to grow vertical bone. Some of your cases are technically very difficult for most on this board. thanks Band

Esthetic Tissue Reconstruction Around Implants - Part 1 of 2 Premium Member Content

Esthetic Tissue Reconstruction Around Implants - Part 1 of 2
Esthetics in implant-supported restorations is an important clinical objective in contemporary dentistry. Understanding the biological behavior of hard and soft tissues following tooth extraction is the first step to anticipate the physiological tissue remodeling and its consequences. Our objective in these 2 sequencial lectures was to provide straightforward decision trees related to several clinical scenarios observed in routine clinical practice. The 3 fundamental pillars for peri-implant excellence are: restorative-driven implant position, hard and soft tissue reconstruction using different biomaterials and grafts, and prosthetic management. Using this philosophical approach seems to provide esthetic and stable results over time irrespective of the initial clinical condition.

The Dual Zone Approach to Tooth Replacement in the Esthetic Zone Premium Member Content

The Dual Zone Approach to Tooth Replacement in the Esthetic Zone
Improvements in implant designs have helped advance successful immediate anterior implant placement into fresh extraction sockets. Clinical techniques described in this presentation will enable practitioners to achieve predictable esthetic success using a method that limits the amount of buccal contour change of the extraction site ridge and potentially enhances the thickness of the peri-implant soft tissues coronal to the implant-abutment interface. This approach involves atraumatic tooth removal without flap elevation, and placing a bone graft into the residual gap around an immediate fresh-socket anterior implant with a screw-retained provisional restoration acting as a prosthetic socket seal device. Long term follow up and evidence from scientific literature to support this concept will be described.

Esthetic Management for Compromised Extraction Sites - Part 2 of 2
Missing soft tissue is the main reason for compromised results in the aesthetic zone. But since the soft tissue has to be supported by a sufficient amount of bone, our focus has also to be on bone. Due to the fact that no bone-preservation technique (at the time of tooth extraction) available today, gives us the perfect result we need, augmentation procedures are still needed. Appropriate bone and soft tissue engineering in all three dimensions enhances the aesthetic performance of long-lasting restorations that blend in well and emerge from the periimplant sulcus in harmony with the neighboring teeth.

Alloplastic Bone Substitutes Around Dental Implants

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…
