Off The Shelf Bone Block Grafting. The Why and how of effective allograft block grafting

Hassan Maghaireh

This webinar will present indications, clinical applications and differences in technique between maxgraft cancellous blocks vs. maxgraft unicortical cancellous blocks.

Placing a dental implant in the correct four dimensional position and within the future prosthetic envelop is considered as one of the crucial aspects of long term peri-implant bone and soft tissue stability in implant dentistry. It is unacceptable anymore to place an implant tilted buccally with the apex directed too palatally in order to achieve primary stability in cases with deficient bone volume as this will lead to a compromised and oversized clinical crown, minimal peri-implant labial bone thickness and gum recession.

Therefore, in cases with considerable bone defects such as one wall defects, no wall defects or even two wall defects with extensive mesio-distal gap, a pre-implant augmentation surgery is a vital prerequisite to allow correct implant placement in order to achieve satisfactory aesthetic and functional short and long term results. A variety of bone-grafting materials have been used, but autogenous bone blocks harvested from either extraoral or intraoral sites have been traditionally claimed to be the gold standard . However, allograft blocks are nowadays considered by a wide group of clinicians as a valid and well documented alternative which offers comparative results at a fraction of trauma, morbidity and risk to our patients.

In this webinar, Dr Maghaireh will present the clinical workflow of various types of allograft bone blocks used at his practice in Leeds- UK with more than 5 years follow up. He will also present bone grafting clinical tips and recommendations in addition to detailing advantages and potential drawbacks and discuss indications and contraindications of various types of allograft blocks.
