Vertical and Horizontal Augmentation Challenges

The introduction of the biological concepts of Guided Bone Regeneration (GBR) has determined a major improvement in the aesthetic outcomes.
A correct diagnosis based on a multidisciplinary approach,including periodontal, prosthetic and surgical parameters is crucial. The periodontal evaluation must consider
different factors regarding the patient’s periodontal health and anatomy like the periodontium bio-type, amount of keratinized gingiva and mucosa, the height
and the width of available bone.
The prosthetic treatment planning has to consider cosmetics, phonetics and function.
Organize the treatment planning and surgical indications of atrophic jaw bone patients
- Learn the surgical technique for horizontal and vertical bone augmentation
- Learn the surgical techniques for hard and soft tissue management in aesthetic implant restorations
- Understand the secrets for long term results and management of complications
The implant placement in a proper position is essential for at least four reasons:
- the emerging profile of the final prosthetic restoration is influenced by the position of the implant;
- a sufficient amount of bone must be maintained buccally, mesially and distally to the implant;
- there must be a minimal discrepancy between the axis of the crown and the axis of the fixture;
- A proper biological width must be respected.
In conclusion, the future is moving towards an era where less invasive treatment regimes are now available to minimize complications and side
effects of a surgical procedure, decrease patients’ morbidity, increase success rates and decrease technical difficulties.
