The Biologic Rationale for Bone Graft Selection

There is a wide array of bone graft materials used in dental surgery. Each bone graft type has its own unique handling characteristics, resorptive pattern, and biologic signature. When we are faced with a complication or failure of a graft procedure, it can be difficult to determine the origin of the problem and the potential role of the biomaterial in the mode of failure. This lecture will help to develop strategies for bone graft selection in different procedures, graft preparation, and timing of implant placement. This biologic rationale will enhance your clinical outcomes and significantly reduce potential post-operative problems.

 Dr. Miller received his B.A. from New York University and M.A. from Hofstra University, both in biology. He graduated with honors from New York University College of Dentistry where he received the International College of Dentists Award for clinical excellence and then completed his residency at Flushing Medical Center in New York City.


Dr. Miller is a board certified Diplomate of the American Board of Oral Implantology, Honored Fellow of the American Academy of Implant Dentistry, Diplomate International Congress of Oral Implantologists, Fellow Academy of Osseointegration, and serves on the executive board of the Society for Oral Laser Applications based in Vienna, Austria. Dr. Miller is acting Chairman of the Department of Oral Implantology at the Atlantic Coast Dental Research Clinic in Palm Beach, Florida, Director of The Center for Advanced Aesthetic and Implant Dentistry in Delray Beach, Florida, and Co-Director of the Pacific Implant for Advanced Dental Education.
