In many cases, bone augmentation is necessary before implants can be inserted. Additionally, soft tissue management can be a decisive factor for implant success. In all cases, the “Gold standard” of using autologous bone is in competition with the use of Bone Graft Material products. This lecture gives deep insights into the Concept of Biological Bone Augmentation (BBA) with pure autogenous bone and tissue and is addressed to all clinicians, who already have experience in augmentation techniques. Clear guidelines for the use of autogenous bone harvesting and augmentation techniques in order to achieve predictable results will be provided as well as reliable techniques in complication treatment.

Course topics:

Introduction of the BBA Concept (Biological Bone Augmentation with pure autogenous bone) and Khoury technique:

  • What are the basics?
  • Where are the limits in augmentation techniques?
  • Lateral augmentation and advanced soft tissue management
  • The atrophied edentulous maxilla- surgical and prosthetic concepts
  • Complication treatment pre-, intra-, and post-operatively
  • External sinus grafting and the layering technique
  • Peri-implantitis treatment

Aims and Objectives:

  • 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 in treatment pre-, intra-, and post-operatively
  • How to harvest bone intra-orally and how to deal with vertical defects
