Recorded at the Royal College of Surgeons England, this is a 4 part series on bone regeneration and revascularisation.

Treatment of complex implant cases - Dr. Patrick Palacci 

In this video, Dr. Palacci discusses techniques for soft, and hard tissue, for aesthetic and complex zone implants.

Aims and objectives:

  • Learn techniques on improving hard and soft tissue around implants for good aesthetic outcomes
  • Techniques following extraction to maintain and improve hard and soft tissue
  • Techniques on precision of implant placement – tips on getting precise positioning and angles in multiple implants esp. in the aesthetic zone
  • Use of implant positioning guides
  • How to recreate hard tissue support – for implants and for soft tissues and to optimise implant stability, positioning and aesthetic outcomes
  • Gain knowledge of the alternatives to autogenous bone grafts, in areas of narrow implants - discussion of narrow implants and biomaterials – to gain optimal aesthetic results
  • Use of narrow implants in functional and aesthetic positions – some applications
  • Narrow diameter implants in the posterior, without sinus elevation, and with sinus elevation
  • Narrow diameter implants in very thin, knife edge resorbed ridges of the edentulous patient and how biomaterials can be used
  • Use of biomaterials – some applications
  • Horizontal augmentation
  • Management of implant failures in very complex cases, and reconstruction of ridges
  • Placement of implants and biomaterials with very complex cases

Collegenated biomaterials. The science of complex cases - Dr. Ulf Nannmark

In this video, Dr. Nannmark discusses various biomaterials used to reconstruct hard tissue with a special focus on xenogenic biomaterials . Very useful lecture for those wanting to know more about hard tissue.

Aims and objectives:

  • Discussion on different biomaterials
  • Focus on xenogenic biomaterials
  • The effect of biomaterials in-vitro cultures and in some in-vivo animal studies
  • The use of PRF membranes in socket preservation, together with mp3 bone biomaterial – is socket preservation useful using these clinical examples
  • The use of bone biomaterials and reconstruction in peri-implantitis – understanding the possibilities
  • The protocol used for the management of cases of peri-implantitis
  • Block augmentation, in very resorbed ridges, using spongious blocks
  • Use of biomaterials in socket preservation, peri-implantitis, very resorbed ridges vertically and in sinus augmentation cases
  • Equine bone block in surgical vertical and lateral bone augmentation

Thinking outside the box in dental implantology - Dr. Ziv Mazor 

In this video, Dr. Mazor provides some novel new techniques in bone regeneration using the dentine graft , and the use of osseodensification as a novel new process to consider instead of sinus lifting.

Aims and objectives:

  • Treatment options when there is ridge collapse or ridge resorption
  • Regenerative options from socket preservation, to guided bone regeneration in ridge deficiencies
  • Treatment options in severe ridge atrophy including ridge splitting, sinus lifting, nasal floor elevation, nerve bypass and use of narrow diameter implants
  • Dr. Mazor demonstrates a new procedure for bone augmentation that uses processed extracted teeth for immediate grafting. An interesting concept
  • GBR in cases
  • Demonstration of a new procedure called osseodensification (for crestal sinus augmentation) which is an alternative to lateral sinus lift
  • Bone reduction and implant placements using surgical reduction guides

State of the art bone augmentation and implant surgery - Dr. Roberto Rossi

In this video, Dr. Rossi provides a method of regenerative hard tissue defects using cortica lamina.

Ais and objectives:

  • Gain an insight into the type of ridge defects and the aetiology of ridge defects

  • Classification of bone defects following extraction
  • A review of the literature on bone augmentation and vertical bone augmentation techniques
  • An overview of cortica lamina for bone augmentation and examples of clinical cases
  • The application of cortica lamina for vertical and horizontal ridge augmentation in posterior mandible and maxilla cases and in aesthetic cases, is demonstrated
  • The use of this in reconstructing implant failure sites
