11. Alveolar Ridge Augmentation Using Recombinant Human Bone Morphogenic Protein (rhBMP-2): A Literature Review and Histologic Case Report By Bassam M. Kinaia, Michael Ramos, Sami Chogle, Leyvee Cabanilla Jacobs, Maanas S. Shah
Alveolar ridge deficiency is a common occurrence after tooth extraction creating a challenge to clinicians attempting to obtain predictable results for future implant placement. The use of bone grafts and growth and differentiating factors such as recombinant human bone morphogenic proteins (rhBMP-2) are well documented in alveolar ridge augmentation. The current clinical, radiographic and histologic case report presents the use of rhBMP-2 in alveolar ridge and sinus lift augmentation.
25. Accuracy of Implant Placement Using Modified Mucosa-Supported Steriolithographic Surgical Guide By Dr. Mostafa Omran Hussein, Dr. Amr El Karargy
Tooth-supported stereolithographic surgical guides have shown the highest degree of accuracy among all types of digital surgical guides. Unfortunately, this type of surgical guide is not valid for completely edentulous patients and mucosa or bone supported guides are used instead. Mucosa-supported surgical guides have many advantages over bone-supported surgical guides and therefore, more research is needed to improve the accuracy of the mucosa-supported surgical guide.
37. Success of Early Loading Dental Implants on Deficient Anterior Maxillae Augmented with Block Allografts By Capt (Dr) Varun Choudhary, Col (Dr) S K Rath2
Recently, block allografts have been reported for successful implant site development, thus eliminating need for a second surgical site. One such material is Demineralized freeze dried bone block allograft (DFDBA). The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of localized ridge augmentation with block allograft (DFDBA) followed by one stage early loading implant placement.
49. Clinical Assessment of Fluorosis and the Effects of Mitigation Measures in Endemic Areas of Mehsana, Gujarat, India By Ashish Sharma, P.S. Ganguly, Anjali Kothari
The purpose of this study was to assess the prevalence of Fluorosis in villages of North Gujarat and comparing it with previous studies to know the effects of mitigation measures taken to curb Fluorosis.
