    Evidenced-Based bone grafting and bone regeneration for expansion of the implant platform: a review of present-day procedures and materials used to augment treatment for improving bone volume 




    Abstract, Learning Objectives and Bio


    This discussion will focus on current trends in the bone augmentation for the treatment of patients requiring dental implants. In addition, a systematic review of complications related to bone grafting will be discussed. The benefits of allogenic materials in both hard and soft tissue will be presented. New materials such as 3-D collagen constructs will be introduced. Innovative solutions including the use of blood modifiers and bone proteins will be discussed. The use of the literature to illustrate the outcomes of certain procedures will be discussed. Making choices for certain treatment regimes will be illustrated. This is not the same old lecture but will introduce some new concepts regarding the alveolar network and why it is specifically a biological liability.

    Santa Fe, New Mexico is a magical, exuberant, colorful journey at any time of year, but particularly in the Spring. Nestled against a backdrop of the majestic Sangre de Cristo mountains and the spectacular sunsets over the Jemez range, the effect is magical.

    The nation’s oldest capital city, Santa Fe is home to artists, chefs, wellness experts, and other creative dreamers, who have brought their culture, talents and experience with them to meld with Santa Fe’s unique blend of Anglo, Spanish and Native Cultures.

    The early Native American inhabitants called it “Dancing Ground of The Sun”; while the founding frontiersman at the turn of the 20th century referred to it as “The City Different.” Those nicknames still hold true today, as you’ll see for yourself.

    Santa Fe Weather

    April daytime temperatures in Santa Fe average about 65 degrees with nighttime lows in the mid-40s. This time of year you may expect 10 hours a day of sunshine. It is suggested that you dress in layers to accommodate the changes in temperature. Dress for the SWSOMS Combined Annual Meeting is Business Casual.
