Two & 3 dimensional bony defects need for the reconstruction special surgical procedures to assure at long term an acceptable functional and esthetical result. The long-term success depends of a precise pre operative diagnostic, atraumatic surgery, the amount of vascularisation and vitality of the grafted area, correct implant geometry and position as well as a systematic soft tissue augmentation improving also the quality of the surrounding gingiva. Autogenous bone grafts harvested from the mandible, and used following the split bone block (SBB) technique are offering many possibilities for intra operative facilities leading to a high vascular support of the grafted area which is important for stable long-term results. Splitting the thick cortical block to 2 or 3 thin blocks is augmenting the number of blocks allowing the reconstruction of larger atrophic crest and giving a better adaptation to the recipient site with individual determination of the width and the volume of the grafted area. Filling the space and gaps between the thin block and the remaining crest with particulate bone chips is reducing the time needed for revascularization of the graft improving its vitality compared to the original thick block. Implants inserted in this grafted bone presented in long term similar osseointegration as implants placed in non grafted bone. Different pedicle or free soft tissue graft are assuring the required volume of the soft tissue.

Curriculum Vitae

Professor Daniel Rothamel is a Professor of Maxillofacial and Plastic surgery at the University Hospital of Dusseldorf, Germany and head of department of a connected teaching hospital. After studying dentistry at the dental school in Dusseldorf from 1997 to 2001, Prof. Rothamel went to medical school in Dusseldorf and specialized in oral surgery from 2002 to 2007. Following graduation in general medicine in 2007 he participated in a DAAD scholarship program at the University of Sydney, Australia. He specialized in oral and maxillofacial plastic surgery at the University of Cologne from 2008-2013, Germany and was senior chief resident from 2013 – 2016. Prof. Rothamel focuses on research into biomaterials for implant dentistry with a special interest in collagen. The topic of his PhD thesis was the regeneration of mandibular defects using bone substitute materials and growth factors. He is a reviewer for several international journals and has published more than 100 national and international peer-reviewed papers.

Grafting procedures in implant dentistry: Autografts, Alternatives and Creative Innovations.


One oft the most challenging procedures in implantology is the predictable and safe regeneration of lateral and vertical larger bone defects. Besides autogenous bone as the golden standard for jaw augmentation procedures, different biomaterials such as bone substitutes and membranes have shown predictable results. Hereby, quality of the recipient site, the osteogenous potential of the graft, graft immobilization and transmembraneous angiogenesis of the barrier and the selected healing time are affecting the predictability of the regeneration outcome. Newer techniques are focussing particularly on graft immobilization and ease of clinical application, but also combinations of the bovine bone particles with hyaluronic acid to furtherly increase the healing properties. They might be interesting additional tools to fulfil the increasing expectations of the modern patient.

Bone regeneration in immediate implant has been shown to be successful in recent years. At the same time, many clinicians may still prefer delayed implant placement after guided bone regeneration to ensure predictability. Should we embrace a speedier technique or being conservative is the better way? This lecture will cover the basis of guided bone regeneration and the decision making in treatment planning, as well as the bone regenerative techniques which can be applied in your clinical practice.

Plaque biofilm has been associated with peri-implant mucositis and peri-implantitis. In order to eliminate the inflammation and achieve satisfactory regenerative outcome, the removal of biofilm is an essential part of the treatment. However, certain challenges remain on the complete removal of biofilm, eg. the macroscopic and microscopic characteristics of implant designs, limited efficacy of conventional plaque control methods, access to plaque removal during the surgery.

This lecture will discuss the biofilm control at different stages of the dental implant treatment, including the ways to facilitate plaque control at the implant planning stage, the adaptation of Guided Biofilm Therapy at the maintenance stage, and the new electrolytic cleaning method at the surgical management of peri-implantitis.

Clinical Concepts for the prevention and management of peri-implant infection  

Peri-implant disease is a serious plaque related problem in daily clinical practice, both in terms of therapy and epidemiology. With the worldwide increasing number of inserted dental implants also the number of patients affected with symptoms of peri-implant infection has greatly expanded.  There seem to be parallelism in etiology clinical manifestations and therapeutic strategies between peri-implant infections and periodontal disease. However, several differences eg in tissue micro-architecture and possibly also in microbiota etc require special strategies in the diagnostic, therapeutic and maintenance approaches. In the presentation prevention and therapeutical concepts for the management of peri-implant infections will be discussed.

Not much is understood on the osseointegration of implants in compromised or abnormal bone. Healthy bone can become compromised because of physiological changes (ageing) as well as pathological changes, not forgetting some medical conditions that also influence the quality and quantity of bone available to receive dental implants. Some medications prescribed to treat these medical conditions undoubtedly exert effects on bone as well. The ageing and pathological conditions include osteoporosis (and its sequelae following anti-resorptive therapy), irradiation to the jawbones, Paget’s disease, fibro-osseous lesions, osteogenesis imperfecta, hyperlipidaemia, adrenal gland imbalance and various auto immune disease treated with corticosteroids, chronic kidney disease and endocrine disorders such as diabetes mellitus and hyperparathyroidism. The medications of concerned include antihypertensives, oral hypoglycaemic agents/insulin, thyroxin and tamoxifen. So far, there has been inconsistencies in advocating implants in patients with certain medical conditions considered as being acceptable, while placement into abnormal bone is controversial. This lecture reviews current knowledge of the impact of the placement of normal implants in abnormal bone.

GBR for vertical ridge augmentations using non resorbable PTFE membranes was developed in the late 1990s (Simion 1994 Tinti 1996). Nowadays, this technique enables to regenerate vertical defects up to 12mm with very high success rates (Urban 2021). Vertical GBR is well documented and is the most frequently used procedure for vertical augmentations. It allows the surgeon to fulfill vertical augmentations and to regenerate a ridge thickness in line with the recommended peri-implant bone volume criteria.

However vertical augmentations are very demanding, and the surgeon has to pass through a learning curve before being able to achieve reproducible good results. This lecture will be about the key points required to perform predictable vertical augmentations.

The decision-making process of failed implant cases should be performed by a proper treatment plan. A less invasive removal technique is required to obtain both hard and soft tissue preservation for reimplantation. Choosing the correct therapeutic approach with the appropriate biomaterials is a fundamental step to achieving success in bone augmentation after explantation. The aim of this lecture is to present well-documented surgical implant removal protocols and current trends in bone augmentation.
