Treating buccal Type II defect using Khoury technique under Dr. Gluckman’s mentorship

Posted on By Tye Thompson In Bone Grafting

I recently had the opportunity to learn from Dr. Howie Gluckman. On the 3rd day of the course I had the privilege to treat a live patient utilizing the techniques learned. I was teamed up with Dr. George Yzaguirre and we treated a wonderful patient using the Khoury bone plate technique under Dr. Gluckman’s mentorship. The patient (who was in his 20s) had lost 9 and 10 in a bar fight and as a result had a buccal type II defect. Fantastic learning experience! A 8 X 15mm block from ramus was harvested and split . Additional autogenous bone was harvested from ramus using safe scraper. The 2 plates were fixated using two 8mm screws in each plate. Plates were smoothed. The additional autogenous graft was placed under the plates. FTMPF with wide base and periosteal release to obtain 1y closure utilizing 6-0 nylon sutures.
Fantastic opportunity to learn from the Xpert Dr. Gluckman.
