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 interpositional 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 augmentation 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 COURSE PARTICIPANTS SHOULD:

  • Describe various augmentation techniques and materials and understand the criteria for choosing the most appropriate technique.
  • Understand various factors which may affect augmentation success, including the degree of bone loss, the configuration of the defect, the location in the mouth, the design of prosthesis, patient preference, and clinician experience.
  • Understand bone biology and graft healing.
  • Know how to perform alveolar ridge augmentation using various proven augmentation techniques.
  • Understand the significance of various flap designs on treatment outcome.
  • Know how to graft in the esthetic zone.
  • Know when to perform block graft versus particulate graft.
  • Know how to perform lingual flap release.
  • Know grafting of vertical ridge defects.
  • Know the “screw tent-pole grafting” technique.
  • Know tunnel grafting.
  • Know when to perform bone graft versus tissue graft.
  • Know how to perform flap release around the mental nerve.
  • Know how to harvest ramus and chin grafts.
  • Recognize and treat graft complications.


THIS COURSE IS INTENDED FOR:

  • Dentists, periodontists, oral surgeons, and prosthodontists.
