This module will cover the preparation and placement of the bone graft and barrier membrane materials. A discussion on growth factors and how to use them with bone graft and membrane materials will also be shown in this module. A detailed step by step approach will be shown through the use of jaw models and pig jaws.
Bone graft Insertion at the Site- GBR Members Will Learn:
-How to harvest and mix your graft material
-Harvesting of autogenous bone with bone scrapers and harvesting drills
-The importance of tenting the space for larger defects with tenting screws or plates.
-How to insert the graft material at the site and pack it to prevent migration of he particles
BONUS: Section on PRF and sticky bone. How to draw blood, spin it in a centrifuge and use the platelet concentrates to make platelet rich fibrin membranes, sticky bone, liquid fibrin membranes, and growth factor impregnated collagen membranes.
Membrane Placement and Stabilization- GBR Members Will Learn:
-How to trim and shape the membrane easily.
-Review the handling and trimming of different types of membranes
-Use of 3d printed models or casts to help with trimming and shaping the membrane
-How to insert the membrane without causing bunching and rolling
-How to secure the membrane using sutures, tacks or pins.
