    6. Bone Augmentation with Platelet Rich Fibrin, Particulate Bone and Cortical Plates

    Complex bone defects could be challenging and treatment planning confusing with multiple alternatives available for treatment. The aim of this study is to evaluate clinically the result of bone augmentation mixing platelet rich fibrin with particulate bone and cortical plates. Clinical success was achieved with this bone augmentation technique for different bone defects. 6 months after grafting, vascularity and integration were clinically observed.

    16. Simplified Ridge and Extraction Socket Augmentation using Sohn’s Poncho Technique

    Bone augmentation is essential before placing a dental implant in an atrophic edentulous ridge. Guided bone regeneration techniques have recently incorporated autologous fibrin membranes with concentrated growth factors to enhance healing. This article presents Sohn’s Poncho Technique which is a method to utilize the healing capacity of CGF or PRF autologous membranes in an open wound when performing localized guided bone regeneration techniques.

    38. Amnio Cord in the Treatment of Gingival Recession: A Report of Two Cases

    Treatment of gingival recession has been one of the core areas of practice in periodontics for either increasing the zone of keratinized tissue to root coverage. Through the years, the treatment ranged from the use of gingival flaps, autografts, xenografts and acellular dermal allografts. The benefits of the procedures aim towards improving esthetics and eliminating exposed dentin hypersensitivity. The Amnio cord is the structure that encircles the blood vessels in the umbilical cord and been used in tissue engineering in the medical field. The healing of the surgical area was uneventful and resulted in a visible increase in the keratinized gingival tissue.

    44. The Use of Steroeolithography in Dental Implant Placement: A Case Report

    While smile analysis and design has been routinely used by cosmetic dentists, prosthodontists, and orthodontists to help plan and execute treatment, they are not typically utilized by dental implant surgeons. Because of this, a breakdown in communications between the lab, surgeon, and restorative dentist can sometimes lead to less than optimal final results for full arch immediately loaded dental implant cases. The DIAsmile™ smile analysis and design protocol provides a systematic and standardized manner in which the smile of a patient can be analyzed pre-surgically and an aesthetic restoration planned.
