Is it in accordance with the standard of care for general dentists to do bone grafting at the time of implant placement or for site development and socket preservation?
After 4 days, the membrane became dislodged, exposing the socket and the graft. Should I remove the current graft material, do a new graft and place a new membrane.
I am interested in comments regarding simultaneous bone grafting with implant placement in cases with dehiscence.
I have a 31 year old male patient who presents with root tips in the #30 + 19 areas and I’m wondering what treatment plan to pursue.
What is the optimal method for preserving bone following extraction where an implant is to be placed?
At 3-weeks post-operative, the membrane exfoliated by itself. The wound site is epithelialized and the implant platform is exposed.
Recently I have started using Puros Block Allograft of corticocancellous bone for block grafts.
I performed lateral GBR – Guided Bone Regeneration – in the mandible to increase the crestal bone width in the #19,20 area about 4 months ago.
When using PRP – Platelet Rich Plasma – for surgeries, are you using bovine thrombin to coagulate the platelets?
CT images show some lingual bone loss and what I’m thinking is a crack.
I extracted this #18 and placed Nu-oss bone graft with membrane one week ago.
Two days post-operative, the patient experienced pain and palatal swelling that is firm to the touch.
How many people are placing membrane over lateral ridge grafts without tack/screw stabilization and what are thoughts and ideas about this?
Much of the membrane was exposed because of the large dimensions of the extraction site. Shortly after the graft procedure, the sutures broke and I was concerned that the membrane would be displaced.
The speaker was adamant that everyone should be placing the smallest possible implants and doing whatever bone grafting as necessary.
I have a patient who is treatment planned for an implant and free-standing single crown in the maxillary left central incisor site. He has a significant buccal concavity.
Considering treatment time, predictability and cost which grafting combination will yield the best results with the greatest chance of success and least chance of complications?
Which would provide a more predictable therapy to augment the zone of attached gingiva – a Free Gingival Graft or a Sub-Epithelial Connective Tissue Graft procedure?
I used Easy-Graft for the first time. The brochure that came with the product states that I could place implants again in 3-4 months because the graft will have undergone osseointegration.
I have learned about a new collagen matrix membrane product called Mucograft. The material is supposed to promote the regeneration of keratinized ginigva in association with grafting or tissue augmentation procedures.
The patient has returned now with the chief complaint of complete numbness of her lower lip on the side the surgery was done. Should I approach this from the perspective of a complication of the surgery or a complication of the graft material?
Have a patient who had GBR, everything was going well until I started preparing the osteotomy sites.
In general, how much bone graft volume – in cubic centimeters – is adequate for sinus graft procedure in the areas of #2,3,4?
How long do you leave in the non-resorbable membrane itself after you do the bone graft?
I am going to do a cortico-cancellous block graft in the anterior mandible. Is complete decortications of the recipient site absolutely necessary?
