Demystifying Bone Grafts in Implant Dentistry
A Simplified and Practical Classification
Once a tooth is extracted, the natural wound-healing cascade paired with irreversible alteration occurs. Grafting techniques (hard and soft tissue) and prosthetic manipulations are required to attempt reestablishing the proper hard and soft tissue loses and proper emergence profile. Multiples grafting materials and surgical techniques (hard and soft tissue) compounded with biological modifiers are proposed to repair the amount of ridge deformation.
After this course the participants should be able to:
- Understand the mechanism of bone graft incorporation
- Discuss a new proposed classification
- Incorporate the usage of blood derived biological modifier to enhance the clinical outcome of bone grafting
- Techniques and case presentations
