This workshop will discuss strategies for treatment of the complex implant site involving bone grafting and implant placement. Our understanding of cellular pathways, and our ability to control the wound response, expands our capacity to effect better esthetic outcomes and compress treatment time. The reduction of the inflammatory phase of tissue regeneration speeds up ossseointegration, prevents crestal bone loss, maintains papillary form, increases the density of peri-implant bone, and enhances tissue biotype. This protocol enables us to predictably treat even the most complex surgical cases, compress time to final reconstruction, and maintain these favorable tissue outcomes over an extended period of time.

Learning Objectives:

At completion of this presentation, participants should be able to: 

  1. Understand the role that autolougous growth factors playin in tissue regeneration
  2.  State the reasons for early complications and failures in grafting procedures
  3.  Develop clinical strategies to include autologous growth factors in implant surgery
