Regenerative Strategies 2018: Single Tooth to Full Arch Reconstruction

This clinical and evidence based presentation will focus on the integration of the science and art of maxillary and mandibular alveolar ridge reconstruction. It is based on the presenter’s 35 years of clinical experience and will feature the key principles for predictable long term stability via case presentations of single tooth to full arch reconstruction. Hard tissue procedures that include extraction site management, ridge split, autogenous block grafting, mesh particulate grafting, GBR and sinus grafting will be presented along with the application of connective tissue grafting, free gingival grafting and the use of acellular dermis matrix.

Learning Objectives:
1. Understand the key principles of alveolar ridge augmentation for predictable long term stability.
2. Understand the importance of the integration of both hard and soft tissue grafting for predictable long term stability.
3. Understand how to prevent, recognize and treat complications of alveolar ridge augmentation.
