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

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

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

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

Autologous Bone vs. Bioactive Modifiers/BMP-2: A Clinical Update in Bone Regeneration - Part 2 of 2
There are several techniques and materials available for implant site development. The choice may depend on a number of factors including size of the defect, osseous morphology, costs and surgeon or patient preferences. Autogenous bone has long been considered the gold standard of graft materials. The trend today is to reduce patient morbidity but still provide predictable outcomes. This lecture will discuss the use of autogenous bone versus using bioactive modifiers such as platelet concentrates, rhPDGF and rhBMP-2 as replacement for the need to harvest bone.

Vertical Bone Augmentation Utilizing Ultrasonic Surgery and Symphyseal Bone Block Graft Premium Member Content

Vertical Bone Augmentation Utilizing Ultrasonic Surgery and Symphyseal Bone Block Graft
In this video by Professor Dong-Seok Sohn and translated into English by Dr. Maurice Salama, a large 3D vertical defect in the Maxilla is treated utilizing autogenous chin block graft harvested and shaped with an Ultrasonic device and then secured with bone fixation screws. Bone shaping and fitting of the block and particulate bone is highlighted. Incision design and suturing techniques for both the harvest site in the mandible as well as the recipient site in the Maxilla are clearly featured on this video. Final outcome is displayed.

Alternative & New Tendencies for Alveolar Reconstruction in Modern Implant Dentistry Premium Member Content

Alternative & New Tendencies for Alveolar Reconstruction in Modern Implant Dentistry
Knowledge of bone biology and physiology are crucial for successful dento-alveolar reconstruction. The presentation will review the natural healing process of the bone and the sequence of events needed for proper regeneration. This process will then be discussed and compare with the present materials and technologies available in the market including alloplastics and allogenic materials. The role of the Stem Cells and rh-BMP2 will be exposed as part of these new trends in alveolar reconstruction for modern implant dentistry. Multiple cases will be presented demonstrating the versatility and outcomes in different clinical situations based on biological, bio-mechanics, and implant aesthetic needs.

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.

Flapless Postextraction Socket Implant Placement in the Esthetic Zone: Part 1. The Effect of Bone Grafting and/or Provisional Restoration on Facial-Palatal Ridge Dimensional Change
The dental literature has reportted vertical soft tissue changes that can occur with immediate implant placement, bone grafting, and provisional restoration ranging from a gain or loss of 1.0mm. However, little is known of the effects of facial-palatal collapse of the ridge due to these clinical procedures. Based upon treatment modalities rendered, an ensuing contour change can occur with significant negative esthetic consequences. The results of a retrospective clinical cohort study evaluating the change in horizontal ridge dimension associated with implant placement in anterior postextraction sockets are presented for four treatment groups. Therefore, it is recommended to place a bone graft and contoured healing abutment or provisional restoration at the time of flapless postextraction socket implant placement.
