Program Track: Tissue Engineering and Hard Tissue Reconstruction
Compromised implant sites with bony defects require reconstruction of the defects. The selection of the technique for reconstruction and its implementation plays a crucial role in its predictability and long stability of the results. This course will review the Biologic Bone Augmentation (BBB concept) and the Split Bone Block Technique (SBBT) which were introduced by Prof. Fouad Khoury and which utilize the patient’s own vital bone which is the so-called “gold standard”. The advantage lies in the osteoinductive and osteogenic potency of the autologous bone. The course will also present innovative modifications further simplifying the methods described. The goal is to have a reconstruction of the defect in a way it that it is safe, time saving, predictable, and long lasting.
• Identify and understand the Biologic Bone Augmentation (BBB concept) and the Split Bone Block Technique (SBBT) for implant defect reconstruction with autologous bone.
• Be able to harvest autogenous bone is a safe, time saving and predictable manner.
• Know the modifications to these techniques.
• Use autogenous “gold standard” bone grafts for implant site development.
