Pikos Institute Bone Symposium
Osteogenic Treatment Planning for Your Patients: Materials and Methods
Although the paradigm of dental treatment has been remarkably expanded by the application of osseointegration for the partially edentulous patient, an inadequate volume of bone continues to preclude implants for many. A series of surgical procedures has emerged to develop ample bone for the ensuing project employing autografts, allografts, and alloplasts with and without barrier membranes. Many clinicians combine these with rh-2 bone morphogenetic protein (rhBMP-2) or rh platelet derived growth factor-BB empowering the results.
The end point question is: can we place implants that will support the occlusal load? This presentation will include preclinical and clinical observations.
• Learn to select the appropriate biologics for regenerative procedures
• Understand the introduction of growth factors to the regenerative equation
• Establish the optimal regenerative end point goals for implant placement
