bone & tissue day SINGAPORE 2024

@ITI WORLD SYMPOSIUM

May 10 2024

Welcome to education, science, innovation, regeneration, and fun.
The bone & tissue days are an innovative congress concept to share, broaden and deepen knowledge in dental hard- and soft tissue regeneration. They are characterized by a combination of theoretical clinical-scientific lectures and practically orientated workshops.

ABSTRACTS

Session 1: Optimizing treatment outcomes: How can we support the healing process?

Dr. Peer Kämmerer: Biological factors in dentistry: What is the evidence?

Even if the success rates of implant dentistry (including guided bone and guided tissue regeneration) are high, there is still a considerable rate of complications or even losses of augmented/implanted materials. To mimic biological processes, several options exist to enhance the respective healing. In this session, popular adjuncts such as platelet-derived fibrin and hyaluronan acid but also controversial nutrition- and lifestyle-based supplementations will be discussed in an evidence-based way. Be excited to see new local and systemic approaches!

Learning objectives:

  • Introduction of the different possibilities to enhance biological properties
  • Role of PRF and Hyaluronic acid on cellular functions
  • Potential implications on clinical outcome


Dr. Dragana Rakasevic: How to support surgical treatment of periimplantitis?

Attempts have been made to combine xenografts with various biologically active materials to produce successful outcomes in the peri-implantitis bone (PI-B) defects management. Recently, hyaluronic acid (HA) was merged with a bovine bone substitute (BBS) to overcome xenografts’ lack of osteoinductive and osteogenic properties aiming to prompt osteogenesis. The present study assessed six- and twelve-month the effects of reconstructive surgical therapy on PI-B defects and soft tissue management by using either BBS with or without HA followed by porcine dermal collagen matrix (PDCM). BBS merged with HA followed by PDCM could be suggested to be utilizes successfully in peri-implantitis therapy.

Learning objectives:

  • When to use non-surgical versus surgical approach in treating periimplantitis
  • Explanation of the surgical protocol
  • Identification of ways to improve the outcome of such treatments


Dr. Martina Stefanini: Taking advantage of hyaluronic acid for GBR around teeth and implants

In order to ensure long term survival of teeth and implants a sufficient buccal support is needed around teeth and implants.

Learning objectives:

  • Presentation of different soft tissue augmentation procedures
  • Differentiation between autologous (soft) tissue and substitute materials
  • Characterization of the role of enamel matrix derivates (EMD) and hyaluronic acid on soft tissue regeneration

Session 2: Challenging autogenous bone as the Gold Standard in bone augmentation

Dr. Frank Kloss: Block augmentation: How to be successful in daily practice

Block Augmentation has been a standard procedure in the rehabilitation of the atrophic alveolar ridge for many years. Especially in the treatment of Class II and III defects in the esthetic zone this technique is recommended by the ITI. However, donor site morbidity of autogenous bone grafts and their complication rates of up to 30% are critically discussed in literature. Hence alternative techniques and materials compete in the field. In the last years allogenic bone blocks have been considered equivalent to autogenous bone block grafting. Free availability, no donor site morbidity and a higher patient comfort are the main advantages of allogenic blocks. A major criterion for a successful outcome, beside the fact of a correct indication, is the intraoperative contouring of the bone block. Respecting the dimensions of the alveolar ridge complication rates can be decreased to 8%. It has been demonstrated that there is no necessity to over contour the allogenic block graft, as resorption rates are equal to cortical autogenous block graft. Beyond that recent literature emphasizes the superior patient´s comfort and the increased patient-reported experience using allogenic bone blocks. With the introduction of CAD/CAM technology complex situations can be solved in daily practice with high accuracy of fit. This leads to a maximum of contact area of the graft to the local bone and finally results in a predictable outcome of the augmentative procedure. Using allogenic bone blocks in augmentative procedures nowadays results in predictable results with low complication rate.

Learning objectives:

  • Examination of the differences between autologous and allogenic bone blocks
  • Which limitations are to be considered without sacrificing predictability
  • Presentation of success rates and discussion of complications and how to manage those


Dr. Algirdas Puisys: Balancing autogenous bone and substitutes: Predictable concepts for bone regeneration

Which bone augmentation technique and material is the best choice in posterior mandibula? And what is the predictability of these techniques? Understanding the limits from the biological point of view and the limits of each technique is mandatory in order to plan a case. This lecture will focus on the “state of the art” of implant placement protocol as well as on bone and soft tissue regeneration in posterior mandibula using autogenous materials as well as bone and soft tissue substitutes.

Learning objectives:

  • Discussion of augmentation concepts: 2-stage versus simultaneous implantation and augmentation: Guidance for daily clinical practice
    Important factors for utilization of the Decompression Technique
  • Role of soft-tissue substitutes on bone augmentation


Dr. Jochen Tunkel: Does extensive bone augmentation always require autogenous bone? Where are the limits and what is the evidence?

Highly atrophic alveolar ridges – the challenge in implantology, which often also does not allow an alternative in form of short / diameter-reduced implants. In addition, the number of augmentation methods that can be used is becoming significantly smaller, and the number of complications is increasing. Autologous bone is still considered the gold standard in these situations. Autogenous bone is, however, not unlimited available, except for harvesting pelvic bone which is a very invasive procedure. Allogeneic bone plates can close this gap. Cases in highly atrophic ridges show that there are no longer extensive limits using this method. The evidence is also increasing making this technique a viable alternative to autologous bone.

Learning objectives:

  • Khoury technique and its modifications: New data on success and complication rates
  • Comparing autogenous and allogenic bone for shell technique: Implications on clinical routine and patient acceptance
  • Augmentative Relining: Strategies to ensure long-term stable results
