A study compared different types of hydroxyapatite (HA), for sinus floor elevation and augmentation.
Discussions related to bone grafting during dental implant procedures.
For a Guided Bone Regeneration procedure, in general, which in your experience provides a better barrier and is more effective: non-resorbable membrane or a resorbable collagen membrane?
BCPC can therefore be considered as a promising candidate for carrying rhBMP-2 for bone grafting procedures.
I know d-PTFE membrane can be left exposed, but it’s also recommended that the membrane be removed at around 4 weeks.
Would an implant placed after sinus elevation without a bone graft provide a satisfactory long-term outcome?
The use of a hydrogel PEG membrane to protect BCP proved to be a valuable grafting procedure to enhance the vital bone formation in the maxillary sinus floor augmentation procedure.
I can see radio-opaque areas. Are these the outline of remnants of the graft?
The custom titanium ridge augmentation matrix (CTRAM) is a novel bone augmentation technique utilizing information digitally obtained from CBCT scans to produce virtual augmentations and custom designs for guided bone regeneration.
Have there been any conclusive studies to show whether or not allografts, particularly demineralized allografts, are fully bio-resorbable?
Should socket grafting be the standard care for dental extractions?
I have a patient where there was considerable gingival recession in the maxillary anterior aesthetic zone.
This simple case, presented by Dr. Peter Fairbairn shows the benefits of CaP synthetic materials.
I was thinking of using Osteovation a calcium phosphate bone cement for the graft.
I would like input on the bone graft quality. I see a kind of a void above the new bone below the sinus.
The calcium phosphate material was delivered to the defect in the bone and no membrane was used to cover it.
I have been considering placing just PRF [Platelet Rich Fibrin] as the sole filling material into extraction for socket preservation and regeneration of bone.
I opened up a case I did GBR 9 months ago, with a Cytoplast membrane reinforced with titanium and closed tension free.
This video demonstrates implant placement utilizing a Palacci flap closure to preserve the papilla.
Dr. Ziv Mazor demonstrates Maxillary Reconstruction Combined with Immediate Loading using Narrow Diameter Implants
In this case, Dr. Roberto Rossi & Dr. Carole Chakar, demonstrate Guided Bone Regeneration in the Esthetic Zone.
The great advantage of the flap design with the tunnel technique is the ability to avoid the crestal incision.
Discussion on an approach for treating a patient that presented with a large buccal swelling and a defect
I did a lateral window approach with a sinus lift and bone graft. About 6 weeks post-op, the patient had a large swelling of the cheek overlying the surgical site .
This video shows you how to create attached gingiva in the upper jaw by creating a split thickness flap.
This patient needed to to extract two teeth, complete any regeneration necessary, and place implants in the sites to be restored by the referring dentist
