Socket Graft vs Delayed Implant Placement – Protocols and Case Selection

Research has shown that up to 50% of bone volume may be lost following extraction, therefore preserving and regenerating the dimensions of a site post-extraction is vital to allow for effective implant placement.

During this session, Dr. med. dent. Nicolas Widmer (Switzerland) will discuss implantology from the perspective of a general practitioner, showcasing how to achieve effective, predictable results using simplified True Bone Regeneration clinical techniques. This will include a particular focus on the relative benefits of socket grafting (including the importance of effectively covering any exposed graft material) versus delayed implant placement.

The presentation will feature several case studies from Dr Widmer’s own clinical experience, exploring True Bone Regeneration techniques with EthOss and other innovative implantology tools.

About the speaker
Dr Widmer has been placing implants since 2006. His extensive CV includes: Master in Implantology GIDE / UCLA, Update in Implantology UFSC, Master in Aesthetic Dentistry UFSC, Lecturer in Dentistry at the University of Bern and Course Director for Osstem Implantate Switzerland and Liechtenstein.

Stability without membranes: “Dome device” Technique for larger bone defects – Dr Mike Ainsworth

In this webinar, Dr Mike Ainsworth discusses this exciting technique, utilising EthOss bone graft material and a “dome device” to create a stable graft, without a collagen membrane, even in larger defects.

Created using short lengths of resorbable suture, the dome device helps to reliably prevent soft tissue pressure from disturbing the graft, whilst still being fully replaced by patient host bone.

The discussion will include:

  • Overview of published research outlining the “dome device” technique and its potential to increase stability
  • Clinical challenges (and potential solutions) in creating the “dome device”
  • Case studies discussing utilising the technique in practice

Dr Ainsworth recently published in the European Journal for Dental Implantologists (Issue 1/19) demonstrating this technique – the paper can be viewed here: https://ethoss.dental/wp-content/uploads/2019/03/edi_01_19_cs_ainsworth_ethoss.pdf.

About the speaker:
Michael Ainsworth graduated from Birmingham University in 2002 and has been in private practice since that time. He became very interested in complex and cosmetic dentistry immediately, attending many courses and conferences both at home and abroad and started placing implants under supervision soon thereafter, completing a 1 year certification course in 2004.

Over the course of the last decade and under the mentorship of Peter Fairbairn he has developed a keen interest in streamlining techniques for the use of synthetic biomaterials in bone grafting, and soft tissue development.

In 2007 he moved to Spain to run a private practice. Since returning to the UK he has worked in a number of practices in Yorkshire and the West Midlands. He is currently undertaking an MSc in Periodontology and has limited his practice to dental implant treatments.
