Pikos Institute Bone Symposium


Oral Rehabilitation in Patients with Severe Bone Loss: Surgical Approach with Autogenous Bone Grafts and Long Term Results

Autogenous bone is still considered the gold standard for intraoral bone grafting. This presentation will focus on using a split cortical bone block protocol (SBB) that allows for predictable reconstruction of both horizontal and vertical defects of the maxilla and mandible. Ten year results using more than 1300 bone grafts for three dimensional defects will be featured.



Learning Objectives:
• Understand the application, indications and surgical protocol for using the split bone block technique (SBB) for alveolar ridge bone grafting
• Understand the role of soft tissue management for long-term success of autogenous bone block grafting for three-dimensional reconstruction
• Prevent and manage intraoperative and post operative complications using autogenous bone blocks for three-dimensional reconstruction
