science & practice ciencia & clínica 31 August | 1 September 2017 31 de agosto | 1 de septiembre de 2017 “There are a number of challenges in our field, many of which are related to failure to osseointegrate” “Muchos desafíos están relacionados con el fracaso en la osteointegración” T oday, implant specialist Dr Maher Almasri is presenting a lecture titled “Placing implants above the inferior alveolar nerve” as part of the Dental Tribune Study Club sympo- sia. In this interview, Almasri, who is head of dentistry at BPP University, a higher education provider in London in the UK, previews his lecture objec- tives and speaks about advances and challenges in the field of tissue regen- eration. World Dental Daily: Could you please summarise the objectives of today’s lecture? Who should attend your pre- sentation? Dr Maher Almasri: In this presenta- tion, I will be talking about the various |Dr Maher Almasri |Dr. Maher Almasri AD materials and modalities available for rehabilitation of atrophic maxillae and mandibles for restoration with im- plant-supported prostheses. I will take into account the amount of atrophy, the morbidity rate, any aesthetic con- cerns, and prosthetic and functional compromise. Moreover, I will cover some areas for which surgeons use contemporary methods to augment bone—most recently, the use of growth factors, which seem to enhance the regenerative capacity of the den- toalveolar tissue. The lecture will be a review of some conventional means of bone augmentation. This will provoke some sort of deliberation with implan- tologists who are aware of the di(cid:5)cul- ties they face in compromised cases. #SayAhh #WOHD18 SAY Ahh Think MOUTH Think HEALTH WORLD ORAL HEALTH DAY 2018 Discover the new 2018 WOHD campaign by visiting the website.

Through the years, multiple proce- dures and augmentation materials for augmenting deficient bony ridges have emerged. We can augment the bony defects either in conjunction with implant placement (simultane- ous approach) or through a surgical intervention prior to implant place- ment (staged approach). Surgeons tend to employ the staged approach in situations with large bone defects, where the primary stability of the im- plants in the prosthetically desired po- sitions is questionable. Bone augmentation procedures used in implant dentistry include graft reconstruction, guided bone regener- ation, maxillary sinus floor elevation and alveolar distraction osteogenesis. Reconstruction of the resorbed ridges using bone grafts is considered the optimal procedure to which all other rehabilitation techniques are com- pared and various types of grafts are available for this augmentation. For decades, autogenous bone has been considered the gold standard; however, it has the disadvantage of donor site morbidity. An understand- ing of the biological processes of aug- mentation and graft replacement— osteogenesis, osteoinduction and os- teoconduction—has questioned this approach, proposing the substitution of autogenous bone with a combina- tion of a non-autogenous scaffold and autologous concentrated growth fac- tors. What do you think are the greatest challenges in the field today? is considered There are a number of challenges in our field, many of which are related to failure to osseointegrate and avail- ability of tissue. However, of course, peri-implantitis the greatest challenge in this specialty. Peri-implantitis is a disease that the majority of dentists are uncertain of how to treat. Much evidence has in- dicated that one-third of implant patients will be infected, and hence, I will reiterate a colleague’s statement: “We’re sitting on a time bomb and we are going to be seeing more and more cases of peri-implantitis.” Where do you stand regarding the growing use of autogenous growth factors? in The use of autogenous growth fac- tors in many aspects of medicine and dentistry has been the highlight for several years. It is considered revolu- tionary regenerative medicine; however, we need to see more evi- dence on the use of this modality in tissue regeneration. Based on the un- derstanding of tissue augmentation that I mentioned above, it is a no- brainer for any surgeon. However, as academics and researchers, we have to respect the hierarchy of evidence for every procedure and technique. Al- though many surgeons have achieved excellent results using autogenous growth factors, we still require more evidence to demonstrate the clinical benefit over other conventional meth- ods. Beyond that, where do you see im- plant dentistry heading in the next couple of years? That is a very broad and challeng- ing question by itself; there is some- thing new every day and many re- search institutions hesitate to talk about their work until it is published. I am comfortable saying that our stu- dents are looking at the different ap- plications of growth factors in implant dentistry. For example, a group of our students are working on the antimi- crobial characteristics of concentrated growth factors, produced in one of few described ways of extracting au- togenous growth factors. This will shed some light on the therapeutic or preventative potential of concen- trated growth factors in implant den- tistry, clarifying whether these can be used to prevent or treat peri-implanti- tis. Thank you very much for the inter- view. Editorial note: Dr Maher Almasri is pre- senting the lecture from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. in Pavilion 7 at booth 7A16–20/7B13–17. His presentation will be streamed live at E l especialista en implantología Dr. Maher Almasri presenta hoy una conferencia en vivo titulada “Colocación de implantes sobre el ner- vio alveolar inferior”, como parte de los simposios del Club de Estudios de Dental Tribune. En la siguiente entre- vista Almasri, que es director de la Fa- cultad de Odontología del BPP Univer- sity Dental Institute, un centro de edu- cación superior en Londres, explica los objetivos de la misma y los avances y desafíos en el campo de la regenera- ción de tejidos.
