• Give insight into the concept of Biological Bone Augmentation (BBA) with pure

autogenous bone and tissue.

• Discuss clear guidelines for the use of autogenous bone harvesting and

augmentation techniques in order to achieve predictable results from predictable

techniques. To include:

o The Khoury technique (cover the concepts and limitations)

o Lateral augmentation and advanced soft tissue management

o Atrophied edentulous maxilla (surgical and prosthetic concepts)

o Complications of surgery, pre and post operatively

o External sinus grafting and the layering technique

o Peri-implantitis treatment

Learning outcomes

• The symbiosis of hard and soft tissue management

• How to prevent complications in association with sinus grafting

• Diagnosis and reliable backward planning in compromised cases

• Complications of treatment pre- intra, and post-operatively

• How to harvest bone intraorally

• How to deal with vertical defects
