Bone-building technology – biology, biomaterials and blood

Paul Stone

Presentation overview:

This lecture will look at the recent developments in bone regeneration for implant dentistry, with the emphasis on avoiding autogenous bone block harvesting.

It will focus on the appropriate use of modern biomaterials and the adjunctive role of other biological processes to enhance the healing potential.

Key learning aims and objectives:

  • To appreciate the need to fully understand the biology associated with bone healing
  • Review the different processes of bone healing
  • Understand the requirements for the correct use of biomaterials in bone regeneration
  • Consider the use of L-PRF and CAD/CAM printed titanium mesh for the management of larger bone defects.
