Block Bone Graft In Esthetic Zone: Conventional And Simplified Techniques

The loss of a tooth does not always followed by an immediate or early implant placement into the socket. And there is frequently a lag of months to years before an edentulous site presents for therapy. During this period  the alveolar ridge decreases in width and height, with as much as 50% loss in width during the first year, two-thirds of which occurs in the initial 3 months. Therefore hard tissue ridge augmentation it is often required to increase bone volume prior to dental implant placement in order to facilitate proper implant positioning. Intraoral autogenous block  grafts are theh golden standard. This necessity is more important in the esthetic zone with regards to create sufficient tissue volume for a pleasing restorative outcome.
This lecture will  review the current state of art of block grafting using the mandibular symphysis and ramus buccal shelf donor sites for alveolar ridge reconstruction in preparation for dental implants in the estehetic zone. The clinical indications, advantages and disadvantages of each site, the conventional  and simplified surgical techniques will be presented and discussed.

Regenerative and Resective Approaches for Peri-Implantitis Treatment

By the increase of the number of implant dentists and the numbers of the implants used the incidance of peri-implantitis cases are increasing as well.  Peri-implantitis is defined as the inflammation / infection effecting all the supporting structures of an implant. The first step for the treatment of this condition is the fight agains the biofilm and utilize ant-infective measures. Once this is accomplished and the infection is eliminated, then the second goal would be to replace the lost supporting structures. The aim is bone regeneration  and re-osseointegration. Bone regeneration  techniques are used and decontamination of the exposed implant surfaces have to be achieved. These are called the regenerative approaches. However, if the size and the morphology of the bone defect are not  favourable  for regeneration then the resective approaches may be tried in order to save the implant and to extend the life of the prosthesis. The goal of the resective  approach is to create an  environment  that facilitates more effective biofilm control thus stop the progression of the disease.  This could be achieved by smoothening and polishing of the exposed implant surfaces and removing of any unsupporting bony walls that create the defect.  In this presentation regenetative and resective approaches for peri-implantitis treatment will be described and discussed.
