Dentaltown now has online the CE course, (R)Evolution of Bone Augmentation by Dr. Jan Kielhorn.
This CE course can be found here..
Bone augmentation is one of the most important and most difficult steps in implantology. The standard techniques used are very sensitive, and are bound to a certain experience from a large number of surgeries. They also have a high learning curve.
Despite these facts, augmentation procedures are often the least planned part of the therapy and based on poor diagnostics. Due to a lack of standardized protocols these procedures are often performed by the surgeons favorite method instead of the most indicated one.
It is astonishing, that for implant placement advanced techniques are used - cone beam, navigation templates etc. - whereas augmentation procedures are often based on a high percentage of improvisation.
3D diagnostics, the use of standardized protocols ( plug and play ) and prefabricated allograft materials do allow a reduction of treatment time and trauma for the patient by raising the reliability and success rate of this procedure. This will make these procedures open to a larger number of implantologists and improve overall quality of implant treatments.
