Bone Reformation

Contemporary bone augmentation procedures in oral and maxillofacial implant surgery....

Didactic step-by-step presentations of different techniques for augmentation in all kinds of challenging bone deficiency situations and is intended for use prior to or in conjunction with endosseous implant placement. Reconstruction of severely atrophic edentulous jaws, posttrauma treatment in the anterior maxilla, and augmentation of the posterior maxilla and mandible are some of the topics covered. Clinical and experimental results of close follow-up of extensive patient groups are presented, as the book shows how careful monitoring with controlled incremental changes of the surgical protocol has led to development of new surgical methods. More than 20 scientific papers justify the methods presented in the book, representing more than 15 years of experience in reconstruction of the alveolar process.

He joined the research group led by Prof. P-I Branemark in 1982 and participated in studies on osseointegrated dental implants. In 1991 he was awarded a PhD-degree on a thesis entitled "On the bone tissue response to titanium implants". He was trained in oral surgery at the Branemark Clinic, Public Health Service and Faculty of Dentistry in Gothenburg and worked there part-time from 1989 to 2001. The Branemark Clinic served as an international centre for clinical work, research and education regarding treatment of edentulous patients with dental implants. In 1993 he was appointed Associate Professor and in 2000 Professor in Clinical and Experimental Oral Implantology at the Department of Handicap Research/Biomaterials at the University of Gothenburg. He held a part-time position as professor at the Department of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery at Umea University, Sweden from 2003 to 2004. From 2011, he is part-time Professor at the Department of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, Institute of Odontology, Sahlgrenska Academy at Gothenburg University, Sweden and works today with implant surgery in private practice in Sweden, Italy and Scotland.
