Bone Graft Complications

&

Point/Counterpoint: Vertical Defects in the Esthetic Zone – Prosthetic or Surgical Solutions?” by Craig M. Misch, DDS, MDS (Prosthetic Solutions) and Bach Le, DDS, MD (Surgical Solutions)

Abstract, Learning Objectives and Bio

Bone Graft Complications
Abstract

Failures and complications associated with bone augmentation can have a devastating effect on the outcome of dental implant treatment. These complications are classified as either early or late. Early complications include wound dehiscence, membrane and graft exposure, and infection, with the most common complication being wound dehiscence. Late complications of bone augmentation are now recognized more frequently and include late resorption, foreign body reaction, late breakdown of grafted sites, lack of keratinized tissue and poor esthetics, as well as implant failure. This clinical presentation will focus on how to identify and avoid potential complications before they arise and how to manage many of the common complications that can occur with bone augmentation procedures. Emphasis will be given to risk assessment, classifications of complications and treatment of challenging failures.

Learning Objectives
  1. Identify patient-related risk factors associated with bone augmentation procedures.
  2. Identify anatomical-related risk factors associated with bone augmentation procedures.
  3. Diagnose and treat complications related to bone augmentation surgery.
Point-Counter-Point with Dr. Misch
Abstract

Patients with missing teeth in the “esthetic zone” may present with severe hard and soft tissue loss.  While many techniques offer excellent results for reconstruction of these defects, few can be said to guarantee success.  A bone augmentation procedure to correct a vertical defect in the esthetic zone that is not fully successful in correcting the defect often ensures the use of prosthetic pink. This leads to the treatment dilemma: “if we have to use a little pink, why not use a lot of pink” and spare the patient the painful bone augmentation in the first place? The aim of this lecture is to critically evaluate the current evidence to determine the predictability of various bone augmentation techniques for vertical ridge defects for implant placement and when to consider more conservative alternative treatment options. 

Learning Objectives
  1. Discuss the methods for vertical bone augmentation in the anterior maxilla
  2. Understand the limitations of augmentation and implant replacement of multiple missing teeth in the esthetic zone
  3. Discuss surgical approaches to prepare the anterior maxilla for the prosthetic solution to defect management

Soft Tissue Grafting and the Importance of Phenotype Conversion around Dental Implants: a Periodontal Plastic Surgeon’s Perspective




Abstract, Learning Objectives and Bio

Abstract

There is growing evidence of the importance of both soft and hard tissue dimensions around dental implants in the prevention of short-term and long-term complications. This clinically oriented presentation will focus on the benefits of “phenotype conversion” using autogenous tissue grafts as well as collagen matrices whose usage comes with less patient morbidity. In addition, the use of bone-grafting substitutes to fulfill the “10 Keys for Successful Esthetic-Zone Immediate Implants” will be reviewed as it relates to long-term success. The clinical importance of the buccal gap dimension in the decision process to virtually plan an implant width will be reviewed. Lastly, Dr. Levine will share his conclusions of 4 publications in which he has co-authored with Dr. Mauricio Araujo (University of Maringa, Brazil) on a series of single tooth immediate central incisor implants placed in his private practice with CBCT and clinical analysis at greater than 1-year in function.

Learning Objectives
  1. Recognize and apply the “10 Keys for Successful Esthetic-Zone Immediate Implants” (2 Diagnostic, 5 surgical and 2 prosthetic “Keys”) as published in by Dr. Levine and his clinical research group (Compendium of Continuing Education in Dentistry: 2017, 2018, 2021).
  2. The importance of soft and hard tissue augmentation for usage in both esthetic and non-esthetic areas for long-term success from single tooth to full arch.
  3. Describe the indications and benefits for the use of a new volume-stable collagen matrix to augment soft tissue thickness around dental implants and its important role in “phenotype conversion”
  4. To understand the recent documented evidence supporting the usage of “phenotype conversion” around dental implants including a series of clinical studies to be published by Dr. Levine and his clinical research group.

Microvascular Reconstruction of the Maxilla and Mandible

Abstract, Learning Objectives and Bio

Abstract

Reconstruction of the maxillofacial region poses many challenges and continues to be one of the most difficult tasks of an oral and maxillofacial surgeon.  In the past few decades, a focus on improving patient form and functionality has driven advancements in the field.  With the advent of free microvascular tissue transfer, patients requiring large hard and soft tissue reconstruction have had improved results that what was acceptable in the past. In addition, our application of computer aided design and manufacturing has made predictable functional reconstruction even more attainable.  Even with these recent advancements our pursuit for perfection has yet to be realized as we explore new methods to solve an age-old problem.

Learning Objectives
  1. Review of principles for maxillofacial reconstruction.
  2. Free tissue reconstruction techniques.
  3. Use of computer aided surgical design and 3D printing in reconstruction.
  4. Future directions in facial reconstruction.

Practical Access to Stem Cells for Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery

Abstract, Learning Objectives and Bio

Abstract

Today’s, point of care in-situ tissue engineering can reconstruct large continuity defects of the mandible and cystic defects as well as regenerate sufficient bone to place dental implants with ridge augmentation procedures!

The components of predictable in-situ tissue engineering have been shown to be cells, a signal i.e., rhBMP-2/ACS, and a matrix i.e., cancellous allogeneic bone +/or fibrin, fibronectin, vitronectin. As defects become larger and the tissue bed becomes more compromised with scar, radiation, or poor vascularity, a greater number of osteoprogenitor cells/stem cells is required. Three existing bone marrow harvesters have shown the ability to regenerative bone in jaws to varying degrees. One system uses a straight trocar to remove 60 ml of a bone marrow aspirate which is centrifuged to a 10 ml concentrate. Another system uses a straight to trocar to harvest 10 ml of a bone marrow aspirate without the need to centrifuge. A third system uses a flex metric design to harvest 10 ml or more, if required, also without centrifugation and has shown superiority in stem cell yield, applicability to the office, better safety and reduced cost. Data on these three systems will be compared as well as outcomes in bone regeneration.

Learning Objectives

1. The attendee will learn where the largest number of stem cells and osteoprogenitor cells reside in the donor sites of the tibia, anterior ilium, and posterior ilium.
2. The attendee will learn of appropriate markers for stem cells as well as the counts in CFU-f’s to look for to assess stem cell yield.
3. The attendee will be able to assess and know the difference in bone marrow aspiration devices related to a need or not need for a centrifuge, a straight needle versus a flexible needle, and the value of aspirate upon removal of the needle or going forward.

From Bench to Bedside: The Evolution of Tissue Engineered Maxillofacial Reconstruction



Abstract, Learning Objectives and Bio

Abstract

First conceptualized by W.T. Green in the 1970s, the advent of tissue engineering was a significant milestone in the field of medicine and surgery. What started as proof-of-concept studies in preclinical models has transitioned to clinically applicable regenerative strategies for maxillofacial reconstruction in patients. Tissue-engineered bone grafts have made the reconstruction of defects of the oral and maxillofacial region predictable and reliable without the need for harvesting autogenous bone. At the same time, the use of allogeneic nerve has revolutionized nerve repair and changed the concept of sensory recovery after trauma and ablation. The focus of this session will be on the two fields where the most significant advancements have occurred, craniofacial bone and sensory nerves. Multiple long-term clinical studies have demonstrated tissue-engineered bone grafts and allogeneic nerve reconstruction are equivalent or even superior to autogenous grafts.

The “bench” part of this session will introduce and discuss the science regarding bone and nerve repair and regeneration. Emphasis will be placed on state-of-the-art science regarding growth factors, autogenous bone substitutes, and allogeneic grafts.

The “bedside” session will focus on key concepts for the successful clinical application of tissue engineering science to bone and nerve repair. This session will briefly discuss preoperative workup, preparation, and procedural options for patients with tumors, post-resection defects, and traumatic defects. Focus areas will include surgical technique, postoperative care, and the management of complications.

Learning Objectives
  1. Discuss the science behind bone grafts, tissue-engineering graft, Allogeneic Nerve regeneration
  1. Review surgical techniques to optimize bone and nerve regeneration and patient outcomes
  1. Review Surgical Technique and Management of Complications

Point/Counterpoint: Vertical Defects in the Esthetic Zone – Prosthetic or Surgical Solutions?” by Craig M. Misch, DDS, MDS (Prosthetic Solutions) and Bach Le, DDS, MD (Surgical Solutions)






Abstract, Learning Objectives and Bio

Abstract

The loss of teeth, supporting bone and soft tissue in the esthetic zone significantly complicates implant replacement. There are numerous techniques and materials that may be used to surgically reconstruct the anterior maxilla. However, vertical bone augmentation is less predictable and efforts to surgically recreate a natural appearance can have limitations. In addition, there are disadvantages of augmentation procedures including increased morbidity, treatment length and costs. Rather than surgically reconstructing esthetic zone defects many clinicians opt to replace the missing hard and soft tissue with the prostheses. Although non-grafting options should be considered some patients may dislike artificial replacement. This presentation will look at limitations of surgically reconstructing the esthetic zone and guide clinicians on implant rehabilitation with augmentation techniques.

Learning Objectives

1. Discuss the methods for vertical bone augmentation in the anterior maxilla
2. Understand the limitations of augmentation and implant replacement of multiple missing teeth in the esthetic zone
3. Discuss surgical approaches to prepare the anterior maxilla for the prosthetic solution to defect management

Bone Augmentation and Reconstruction: Keystones to Stimulate the Regeneration Process




Abstract, Learning Objectives and Bio

Abstract

Reconstruction of complex shaped vertical and lateral bony defects is still a challenging problem for the surgeon and constantly complications and failures in osseous regeneration can occure, especially when bone substitutes are used or blended or when the patient`s tissue are medically compromised. On the base of the human bone physiology and its regenerative healing mechanisms the fundamental mechano-biological keystones in surgical bone augmentation and reconstruction are presented in a step-by-step approach. Considering the biological requirements in modulated stability, early loading and enhanced neo-vascularisation by application of autologous blood concentrates the complication rate can be reduced and bone augmentation can be performed more sucessfully even in very compromised patients like in irradiated bone.

Learning Objectives
  1. Understand the bone physiology regarding its regeneration processes and capacities
  2. Assess the different available bone substitutes and surgical techniques
  3. Avoid complications by strictly following physiologically-based surgical augmentation principles

Treatment concepts for the management of Peri-Implantitis

Abstract, Learning Objectives and Bio

Abstract

“Treatment concepts for the management of Peri-Implantitis”

Previous studies have indicated that surgical treatment of peri-implantitis with concomitant placement of a bone filler is associated with clinical and radiographic improvements on both short- and long-term periods. However, the available evidence also suggests, that the effectiveness of regenerative treatment approaches is influenced by several factors, such as the type and configuration of the defect, implant surface characteristics, as well as the method of surface decontamination.

Learning Objectives
  1. Surgical techniques and materials for regenerative therapy of peri-implantitis associated defects
  2. Various decontamination protocols
  3. Combination procedures for advanced defects (resective/regenerative)
  4. The indication for soft tissue volume grafting
  5. Indication based flap and suturing techniques
