Pikos Symposium 2022 – Dr. Snjezana Pohl

Local, Sustainable, Organic, Recyclable: Intraoral Donor Sites

Autologous tissue is not immunogenic; there is no risk of disease transmission, it contains growth factors. Still, “Gold standard” tissue is often neglected because of the donor site morbidity. Morbidity can be dramatically reduced by choosing a donor site adjacent to the recipient area and/or donor site that is known to be associated with minimal postoperative discomfort. 

This lecture will present the utilization of tuberosity bone, translocated ridge segments, extracted and partially retained teeth, and wound closure techniques.  

Learning Objectives:
• Understand the biological and clinical rationale for Partial Extraction Therapy, dentin autograft, and tuberosity bone
• Learn to utilize adjacent tissue  for defect augmentation
• Learn a novel technique for the wound closure in the upper jaw
