SYNOPSIS:

Many techniques and augmentation materials have been described for horizontal and vertical ridge augmentation. These include guided bone regeneration (GBR), ridge expansion/splitting, autogenous onlay block grafting, titantium mesh techniques, distraction osteogenesis, and interposi-tional osteotomy. While many techniques offer excellent results in some situations few can be said to guarantee success. Many questions still remain on which methods yield the most predictable results for dental implant placement in grafted bone. The aim of this course is to critically evaluate the current evidence to determine the predictability of various bone augmen-tation techniques for horizontal and vertical ridge defects for implant placement. A series of cases have been gathered to illustrate risk assessment and predictable management of various critical size defects ranging from moderate to severe defects.

UPON COMPLETION YOU WILL BE ABLE TO:

  • Describe various augmentation techniques and materials
  • Understand the criteria for choosing the best technique to minimize complications
  • Describe critical factors affecting augmentation success
  • Know when to perform bone graft versus tissue graft
  • Know when to use autogenous bone versus biomaterial
  • Understand the significance of flap design on treatment outcome
  • Compare different biomaterials and growth factors and know when to use them
  • Recognize and treat graft complications

Discussion and hands-on section will include indications and contraindications for:

  • GBR techniques
  • Autogenous block grafts
  • Interpositional osteotomy
  • Distraction osteogenesis
  • Titanium mesh techniques
  • "Screw tent-pole grafting" technique
