Simultaneous Bone Augmentation and Implant Placement using the Allograft Ring-Predictability in Practice
- Define the clinical guidelines and requirements for the allograft ring technique
- Develop a case selection criterion
- Understand the difference between allograft ring and traditional regenerative techniques
- Define the requirements for flap design to ensure maintenance of closure
- Learn the clinical steps to perform the allograft ring procedure
- Define the clinical advantages for the allograft ring
The establishment of optimal and predictable implant site remains as the most important and challenging aspect of ridge deformity rehabilitation. The goal of the regenerative procedure is to alleviate or eliminate deficiencies and result in ideal ridge contour. Successful outcome should be defined as the patient's perception of "functionally satisfying" and the clinician's assessment of acceptable ridge contour and architecture to maintain aesthetics and function.
Achieving these characteristics depends in the interaction between multiple variables; namely biologic, surgical, and prosthetic. It is obvious that analyzing, selecting and integrating each of these factors is challenging.
This course is designed to introduce a new and innovative augmentation solution, the allograft ring technique. The ability to correct ridge deformity simultaneously with implant placement can overcome the above challenges; reduce the number of surgical interventions and treatment time.
Participants will practice using the allograft ring on porcine specimens and also observe a live patient surgery.
