In this webinar, Dr Mike Ainsworth discusses this exciting technique, utilising EthOss bone graft material and a “dome device” to create a stable graft, without a collagen membrane, even in larger defects.
Created using short lengths of resorbable sutures, the dome device helps to reliably prevent soft tissue pressure from disturbing the graft, whilst still being fully replaced by patient host bone.
The discussion includes:
Dr Ainsworth published in the European Journal for Dental Implantologists (Issue 1/19) demonstrating this technique – the paper can be viewed here.
About the speaker:
Michael Ainsworth graduated from Birmingham University in 2002 and has been in private practice since that time. He became very interested in complex and cosmetic dentistry immediately, attending many courses and conferences both at home and abroad and started placing implants under supervision soon thereafter, completing a 1-year certification course in 2004.
Over the course of the last decade and under the mentorship of Peter Fairbairn he has developed a keen interest in streamlining techniques for the use of synthetic biomaterials in bone grafting, and soft tissue development.
In 2007 he moved to Spain to run a private practice. Since returning to the UK he has worked in a number of practices in Yorkshire and the West Midlands. He is currently undertaking an MSc in Periodontology and has limited his practice to dental implant treatments.
