Bone Harvesting and Block Grafting Concepts
Current Concepts in Bone Biology, Bone Harvesting, and Bone Grafting
In the last decade advances in current concepts in bone biology, bone harvesting and bone grafting have been significant. When it comes to implant placement, surgeons encounter a wide diversity of cases ranging from the straightforward to the complex. Currently, there are numerous approaches to augment the impaired or insufficient ridge. We will review how to grow bone, review current bone harvesting sites, and understand various bone grafting techniques, including Cortical Bone Pins, Bone Blocks, and Bone Plates.
Learning objectives for this lecture:
- Understand how to grow bone for dental implant placement
- Review current bone materials and bone harvesting sites
- Understand bone grafting technique
