The regeneration of tooth-supporting structures which have been lost as a consequence of periodontal disease has recently become a much more predictable goal. Be it through 'true regeneration' or repair, surgical techniques such as osseous grafting and guided tissue regeneration (GTR) can help to improve a clinical situation. In an attempt to continually improve techniques, a plethora of new biomaterials have been developed and marketed to dentists. The aim of this lecture is to review some of current materials available and discuss clinical situations where their specific uses may be indicated.
1. Discuss the different types of bone grafts available and their clinical indications.
2. Discuss the different type of barrier membranes available and their clinical indications.
3. Discuss some biologic mediators used in regeneration and their clinical indications.
Dr. Ryan Schure earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the University of Toronto. During his training, he participated in externships at both the University of Michigan and the Academisch Centrum Tandheelkunde Amsterdam, in the Netherlands, and was the recipient of numerous awards for clinical and academic achievements. He went on to complete his Master of Science degree with advanced training in periodontology and implant surgery at the University of Toronto. His research on the relationships between cardiovascular diseases and periodontal diseases has been published and presented at international meetings.
As a board-certified periodontist in Canada, Dr. Schure's scope of practice includes the non-surgical and surgical treatment of periodontal diseases, periodontal tissue regeneration and periodontal soft tissue grafting. He also has extensive training in the surgical placement of dental implants, hard tissue grafting (including guided bone regeneration and maxillary sinus augmentation) and soft tissue grafting to enhance the esthetics of dental implants. Dr. Schure believes in prevention first and foremost. He strives to provide his patients with the best treatment options available focusing on what is necessary for their long term oral health.
Dr. Schure is a Fellow of the Royal College of Dentists of Canada and a Diplomate of the International Congress of Oral Implantologists. He is an active member of the Ontario Dental Association, Canadian Dental Association, Ontario Society of Periodontists, American Academy of Periodontology, and Alpha Omega Dental Fraternity. He continues to maintain strong affiliation to the University of Toronto as an Associate in Dentistry, where he contributes to the clinical and didactic training of undergraduate and graduate dental students. He is also involved as a lecturer with the department of continuing dental education and as a member of the undergraduate admissions committee.
