Simultaneous Implantation of Dental Implants and Autogenous Human Dentin
In our previous clinical study, autogenous demineralized dentin matrices (DDM) prepared from the functional vital teeth (#38, #41) of thirty-five-year-old female were grafted on the bone defect, using newly developed mill, and then received to the host without troubles. In this study, we implanted the human tooth dentin adjusted previously and the dental implants into the regions of missing tooth simultaneously. Fifty-seven-year-old female presented with missing teeth (#35-#37, #45-#47). First, a non-functional vital tooth (#18) were extracted and cryopreserved immediately. 11 months after extraction, the tooth was crushed by newly developed auto-crash mill using ZrO2 vessel and ZrO2 blade for 1 minute. The crushed granules were demineralized completely in 2% HNO3 solution, rinsed in cold distilled water and lyophilized (granule size: 0.5-2.0mm). The bacteria-free of the DDM were confirmed by the bacteriological examination before use. Drilling of the prospective implant beds were then performed according to the manufacture’s protocol and a screw-type rough surface implants (Nobel Biocare® Mk III) were placed. The adjusted DDM granules were implanted into the bone defect (#45). There are no postoperative complications at 3 years after implantation. This case indicates that the preserved autogenous DDM can be used as collagenous biomaterials with osteoinductive potency.
