Spanning over the whole spectrum of modern augmentation techniques, Dr. Blume will give insights into the different concepts and ways of bone regeneration and augmentation.
Bone grafting in strongly atrophic alveolar ridges often involves harvesting of the patient‘s own bone tissue, despite being a clinically complex, risky and time-consuming procedure. Dr. Blume will distinguish why CAD/CAM blocks have so many advantages and therefore good outcome and prognosis. During the lecture he will share his clinical cases and long-term experiences using CAD/CAM bone blocks. Furthermore possible indications for these Custom Blocks are illustrated.
