Title: Dental implants, when is the right time to graft?


Biography: Kashif Hafeez


Dental implants play predictability due to their high treatment cost and sky-high patient demands. Th e patients who require bone graft ing for dental implants are either complex from the very start or they are rendered complex by our planning and execution of the dental treatment. Th e treatment planning in dental implantology starts very early even before the extraction of the off ending tooth. In predictable cases if we have planned the journey of the patient correctly the need for bone graft ing remains basic and the whole procedure is minimally invasive. In complex dental implant cases bone graft ing is paramount in achieving the high success rates what we are proud of today. It enables us to place implants in the bony envelope and achieve maximum osseointegration. On the other hand, it increases the complexity of the treatment and raises the cost; especially autograft s leads to another surgical site and can prove difficult for the patients to accept. Th e amelioration in the graft materials has given us the liberty to choose the materials of diff erent signifi cance and apply them according to our needs. ‘A stitch in time saves nine’ is the hypothesis in bone graft ing and dealing with complex cases. Decent treatment planning and to predict the right time for bone graft ing is our most important job and the preservation of bone levels at the time of extraction or initial surgery saves a lot of hassle aft erwards. Th e speaker will share his experience for using diff erent graft materials and he will focus light on the procedures of predictable bone graft ing. Th e invasiveness of the procedure can be signifi cantly reduced by suitable planning and bone graft ing at the appropriate time. Learning objectives include: To understand the need for bone graft ing; to appreciate the indications of diff erent graft materials; to fi gure out the technique to reduce the complexity of the treatment; how can we maintain the bone levels during dental implants treatment? and; How can we tackle difficult cases of bone grafting?
