Intelligent grafting procedures in implant dentistry 

Predictable and safe regeneration of bone defects is no longer a major obstacle in the implantology. A proper selection of different grafting biomaterials is based on the volume stability, osteogenicity, origin, porosity, and ease of clinical application that they provide. Especially the new generation of sticky bone not only supports better handling, but also provides faster cells proliferation, vascularization, and better clinical outcomes. Also, the guided bone regeneration is supported by the appropriate choice of barrier membranes. The balance between timed barrier function and space maintenance properties seems to be of crucial importance. The pericardium collagen membranes are already a gold standard for long-term barrier faction, but do we enjoy the removal of titanium meshes? Luckily a new generation of biodegradable metal is already available that doesn’t need removal. Also, their barrier timed function is comparable to pericardium collagen membranes. The lecture will focus on the clinical performance of various biomaterials and techniques.

The Novamag system for a safe and predictable GBR
The NOVAMag® product line is a synthetic and mechanically strong, but fully bioresorbable biomaterial that is replaced by natural bone over time. It thus offers dentists completely new treatment options. The NOVAMag® regeneration family consists of the NOVAMag® membrane and the NOVAMag® fixation screw and was developed for augmentation procedures in the alveolar ridge. The NOVAMag® membrane is a magnesium membrane and the NOVAMag® fixation screw is a set of magnesium fixation screws in different sizes that can be used for both barrier membrane and bone block fixation. Among different applications, a new technique, the magnesium shield technique is presented, which allows any clinician to get the maximum out of a socket preservation in case of missing buccal bone. Due to its unique features, the NOVAMag® product line offers a minimally invasive approach for patients, as the implants do not need to be removed in a second procedure. Therefore, it is also a very safe technique in comparison to non-resorbable membranes. In addition,this also reduces chair time for the dentist. This is a win-win situation for everyday clinical practice.
