Changing Treatment Paradigms via Advances in Regenerative Materials & Implant Design


Sufficient bone quantity for implant placement may be compromised following tooth loss and bone resorption. Bone augmentation is often required to place an adequate number of dental implants in ideal positions for prosthetic support. In addition to improving biomechanical conditions, bone enhancement can also provide proper ridge contour for improved esthetic outcomes. Inherent disadvantages of bone grafting techniques include increased morbidity, surgical time, costs and treatment length. As such a trend has developed towards more minimally invasive approaches. Alternative surgical techniques that avoid the need for bone harvest or use of or tissue engineering products to replace autograft are considered. Another approach is the use of shorter and narrower implants, angled implants and/or fewer implants for prosthetic support. Rather than surgically reconstructing esthetic zone defects many clinicians opt to replace the missing hard and soft tissue with the prostheses. This presentation will look at methods to minimize the morbidity of bone grafting and guide clinicians on implant rehabilitation with grafting and non-grafting approaches.
