Paul Stone has been announced as a speaker at this year’s Edinburgh Dentistry Show on 22 June.
He will be discussing recent developments in bone regeneration for implants, with an emphasis on avoiding autogenous bone block harvesting.
The lecture will focus on appropriate use of biomaterials and the adjunctive role of other biological processes to enhance healing.
‘The ability to build bone in sites where implants are being placed or are planned to be placed is an essential aspect of implant surgery,’ Paul Stone said.
‘Initially, the use of autogenous bone was considered necessary for larger defects.
‘But enhanced understanding of the biology of bone healing has led to a significant improvement in the way that biomaterials can be used for this challenging task.
‘This presentation will look at several new aspects and exciting techniques that facilitate bone regeneration without the need to harvest blocks of bone from the patient.
‘It will briefly review the relevant biology, give invaluable tips for some modified uses for biomaterials and look at the role of platelet-rich fibrin and CAD/CAM printed titanium mesh.
‘For anyone involved in implant surgery, this review of some of the contemporary aspects of bone regeneration should not be missed.’
