Bone resorption sometimes makes implant placement a difficult task both in anterior as well as posterior regions demanding advanced surgical regenerative procedures. In some situations, it requires long term treatment with an unpredictable prognosis. This presentation will focus on the concept of using new, innovative treatment approaches as well as unconventional surgical manipulations dealing with the atrophic ridge. The new concept of "osseodensification" will be presented enabelling the clinician to preserve existing bone and enhance the outcome through a minimally invasive approach. Application of autologous growth factors taken from blood (L-PRF) will be highlighted allowing the clinician to reach the ultimate goal: bringing the patient the function and esthetics with his or her own teeth in a shorter time period.

Learning Objectives:

At completion of this presentation, participants should be able to: 
  1. Identify and understand the need for bone regernation and it's modifications
  2. Comprehend the concepts of Guided Bone Regeneration (GBR) and it's modifications
  3. Present state of the art techniques and graft materials together with the osseodensification concepts
  4. Introduce the benefits of using L-PRF a source for autologous growth factors
