The utilization of implant supported prostheses to replace missing teeth in partially edentulous patients is daily routine at the University of Bern. Roughly 60% of these patients are treated with a bone augmentation procedure, either simultaneously with implant placement or prior to implant placement with a staged approach.
The two best documented bone augmentation procedures are:
(a) Guided Bone Regeneration (GBR) utilizing a 2-layer composite graft combined with a
(b) Sinus Floor Elevation (SFE) using most often a lateral window technique, and clearly less frequently the transalveolar Osteotome technique.
This 1 day seminar will present the GBR and SFE techniques used in daily practice, the decision criteria when to use a simultaneous and when a staged approach. In addition, the preferred utilization of autogenous bone grafts (ABG) combined with deproteinized bovine bone mineral (DBBM) particles will be presented, and their synergistic characteristics. This includes on the one hand the osteogenic properties of ABG offering faster bone formation, and hence, shorter healing periods. On the other hand, the well documented low-substitution properties of DBBM which offers a good volume stability of augmented bone over time.
