Description:

This book discusses basic principles, clinical planning, bone classification, bone regeneration techniques, standard clinical situations, special techniques and complications in modern oral implant surgery.

Bioactivating Concepts are discussed from both aspects: basic research and clinical research. Chapters on basic research deal especially with bioactivation of bone morphogenesis and regeneration by bone morphogenetic proteins, biomaterials and bone repair, bone and soft tissue engineering, as well as cellular and subcellular physiology. Chapters on clinical research focus on intraoral operation techniques, including step-by-step augmentation procedures that are presented in a series of high-quality color photographs.

The international group of authors represents different generations (from newcomers to well-established and renowned researchers), concepts (partly controversial, but nevertheless encouraging), and last but not least individual opinions based on personal excellence and experience.

Description:

This book discusses the various factors and new developments affecting outpatient surgery performed by dentists, oral and maxillofacial surgeons, from the clinical point of view.

The main focus is the traditional oral surgery of the intraoral soft tissues and the hard dental structures. A chapter is dedicated to endosseous implantology, as an alternative to tooth-preserving surgery.

Intraoral operations are presented step-by-step using 1000 color photographs. The text is based on modern scientific literature, and the appendix offers a rich collection of Internet links, making this an excellent reference work for all dentists working or with an interest in this field.

Description:

Today, bone augmentation is one of the most important chapters in implant treatment. This book deals with the key grafting methods commonly used currently in implant surgery. Illustrated with over 1800 mainly color images on more than 500 pages, it provides a unique manual on this subject.

The biological principles of bone grafting and osseointegration of implants in augmented bone are introduced and the diagnostics and planning of operations are discussed. The book then focuses on soft tissue management in augmentation and implant surgery, augmentation with intraoral and extraoral bone grafts and distraction osteogenesis. Chapters on incorporating these methods into the sequence of complex implant prosthetic rehabilitation and dealing with complications and risks complete the book.

“Bone Augmentation in Oral Implantology” is a must-read for every implantologist, oral and maxillofacial surgeon, and anyone with an interest in dental surgery.

Description:

This elaborately illustrated book takes a fresh look at alveolar bone reconstruction, positing that the vitality of the gingiva-alveolus-implant complex is more important than simple implant longevity. With the use of osteoperiosteal flaps, the surgeon manipulates available bone to recover what is missing in a very specific way: endosteally. This relatively minimally invasive approach seems to spontaneously activate the epigenetic signals within the gingivoalveolar complex, and the augmentation develops in a manner analogous to primordial growth.

Once this technique is mastered, bone flaps can almost entirely eliminate the need for block grafting or guided bone regeneration. The culmination of many years’ experience, this volume presents procedures for various osteoperiosteal flaps. It is intended for the private practitioner who must use techniques that work consistently, minimize morbidity, and are simple and relatively quick to perform.
