Summary:

Ultraviolet light treatment of dental implants immediately prior to placement, or photofunctionalization, is a novel clinical tool with the potential to improve implant therapy. Photofunctionalization improves the surface properties of titanium surfaces by removing hydrocarbons, regenerating hydrophilicity, and optimizing electrostatic properties. We photofunctionalizated dental implants and titanium mesh (Ti mesh) in two complex clinical cases requiring simultaneous guided bone regeneration, sinus elevation, immediate implant placement into the extraction socket, and esthetic consideration

Screw "Tent-Pole" Grafting Technique for Reconstruction of Large Vertical Alveolar Ridge Defects Using Human Mineralized Allograft for Implant Site Preparation

Screw "Tent-Pole" Grafting Technique for Reconstruction of Large Vertical Alveolar Ridge Defects Using Human Mineralized Allograft for Implant Site Preparation
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of using titanium screws in combination with particulate human mineralized allograft, in a “tenting” fashion, to augment large vertical alveolar ridge defects for implant placement.

Manejo Integral de Maloclusion Clase III en Adulto, con Requerimientos Periodontales y Protesicos; Reporte de un caso clinico

Manejo Integral de Maloclusion Clase III en Adulto, con Requerimientos Periodontales y Protesicos; Reporte de un caso clinico
En nuestra clinica observamos un aumento de pacientes adultos con problemas esqueletales, compromiso periodontal y necesidades protesicas. Debemos recurrir a la interconsulta con el periodoncista, protesista y cirujano maxilofacial, para la correccion del caso, prestando especial atencion al componente dentario, esqueletal y los tejidos blandos faciales del paciente. La cirugia ortognatica, que generalmente la realizamos luego de una preparacion ortodoncica, permite corregir discrepancias en el adulto y restaurar la funcion y estetica en los tres planos del espacio. Realizada la correccion oclusal, procedemos a sustituir dientes ausentes, mediante implantes y protesis fijas. El Periodoncista, mantiene un control constante de la salud de los tejidos de soporte, durante todas las fases de la terapia multidisciplinaria.

Ridge Expansion, GBR & Meshes: Decision Making in Clinical Practice
A variety of bone augmentation procedures are currently available at use to the clinician. Techniques of variable complexity can essentially yield favorable results. The choice of technique to utilize however, is often based on defect site presentation and operator comfort level. This presentation will focus on the use of ridge expansion, guided bone regeneration (GBR), and titanium mesh. Merits and indications of each technique will be discussed, and clinical cases will be presented that showcase the decision making process involved in treatment planning.

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.

Tissue Engineering and Platelet Derived Growth Factors: Evidence Based Therapy Premium Member Content

Tissue Engineering and Platelet Derived Growth Factors: Evidence Based Therapy
Platelet derived growth factors are now routinely utilized in reconstructive therapy. This presentation describes very detailed and evidence based guidelines for clinicians interested in enhancing their abilities in tissue engineering, especially as it relates to bone augmentation. Specifically, while successful bone augmentation requires the standard surgical parameters of space maintenance, low pressure on the grafts and tension-free flap closure, optimization of this goal requires management and enhancement of the local biological conditions with growth factors. Towards that end, platelet concentrates through the constant release of growth factors are able to promote and enhance new vascularization, provide plasma protein, normal lipidemia, as well as increased collagen and fibrin activity.

Current Concepts for the Preservation of the Post-Extraction Alveolar Ridge Premium Member Content

Current Concepts for the Preservation of the Post-Extraction Alveolar Ridge
Different techniques have been presented in literature in order to preserve the post-extraction site; including the use of barrier membranes, tri-dimensional matrix and bone fillers. An “open-healing” approach is nowadays commonly used, combining a proper management of soft tissues with biological integration of biomaterials. Once hard tissue has been successfully augmented, an adequate soft tissue thickness becomes mandatory in order to create healthy and stable peri-implant tissues. An innovative volume-stable collagen matrix provides the opportunity to treat soft tissue defects around implants as an alternative to connective tissue graft.
