Course Title:  Predictable and Cost-Effective Bone Graft Composites 

Presenter: Maurice Valen 

Course Time: 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM EST

Course Description:

This course covers a spectrum of pliable preformed shapes used for bone grafting procedures with implant placement, from simple and cost effective socket grafting to more advanced clinical concepts in bone regeneration. Surgical techniques and novel biomaterials will be discussed using bone graft/collagen composite materials. The speaker will review state-of-the-art clinical guidelines, surgical techniques for alveolar ridge preservation as well as grafting around immediately placed implants in extensive clinical situations. The science and biological basis of growth factor utilization in bone and soft tissue applications will be reviewed using L-PRF technology. The integration of these principles to generate biologically modified, yet cost effective, biomaterials will be reviewed. 

Course Objectives:

  • Demonstrate simple, predictable and cost effective socket grafting techniques without the use of a membrane.
  • Learn the crystal structure and use of cost effective bone graft/collagen composite materials that have physicochemical and crystallographic characteristics similar to human bone mineral derived from bioactive resorbable calcium apatite crystal clusters.
  • Review additional surgical applications covering post-extraction grafting around immediate implant placement including filling interproximal and facial gaps after extraction.
  • Discuss the scientific and biological basis of growth factor utilization in bone and soft tissue grafting applications.
  • Learn how to biologically modify cost effective biomaterials for enhanced bone regeneration.
