Clinical Presentations at AAP Corporate Forum, November 2015

At the November 2015 AAP Corporate Forum, Dr. Robert A. Horowitz and Dr. Sebastiano Andreana highlighted how they successfully leveraged GUIDOR® easy-graft® CLASSIC Alloplastic Bone Grafting System to perform various challenging cases.

These presentations were recorded live at the AAP Corporate Forum in Orlando, Florida in November 2015.


Advances in bone regeneration around implants and in extraction sockets [19:35 minutes]
Challenges facing the periodontist are bone regeneration at extraction time, peri-implant disease, and the numerous products available. For some cases, a self-hardening bone graft without a barrier may be ideal. Cases treated with the new GUIDOR® easy-graft® CLASSIC, exhibiting rebuilt around implants and regeneration in extraction sockets will be shown.



SPEAKER: Dr. Robert A. Horowitz, DDS, USA
Dr. Robert A. Horowitz graduated from Columbia University School of Dental and Oral Surgery in 1982. After completing one year in general practice, he finished a 2-year training program in Periodontics at New York University and the Manhattan VA Hospital. In 1996, Dr. Horowitz completed a 2-year fellowship program in Implant Surgery at New York University concentrating in bone grafting procedures. As Clinical Assistant Professor in Periodontology and Implant Dentistry at New York University since 1996, he teaches and conducts research in bone grafting and other topics related to periodontics and implant dentistry, and conducts research in the areas of Biomaterials and Biomimetics, Oral Diagnosis/Oral Pathology/Oral Medicine. Dr. Horowitz has published over 60 papers and a book chapter, has lectured and taught hands-on courses both nationally and internationally, and has performed research in periodontal regeneration, perio-plastic surgery, bone grafting, extraction socket augmentation, growth factors/enhancers and the placement of dental implants in areas of limited available bone.



Management of the infected socket during bone regeneration [21:09 minutes]
Dealing with infected sockets is unpredictable in regard to bone grafting procedures and materials, due to local tissue changes, and residual level of infection. The presentation will focus on the use of GUIDOR® easy-graft® CLASSIC as graft material with characteristics that allows for predictable socket preservation in presence of abscesses.

Prior to handling products, clinicians should review the Instructions for Use for product information.


GUIDOR® easy-graft® CLASSIC Alloplastic Bone Grafting System is indicated for the treatment of intraoral/maxillofacial osseous defects.



  • GUIDOR® easy-graft® CLASSIC Alloplastic Bone Grafting System should not be used in pregnant or nursing women.
  • Bone grafting should not be considered for patients where general oral surgery is contraindicated.
  • Use of GUIDOR easy-graft should be avoided in cases where there is uncontrolled disease or therapies which are detrimental to the healing of bone, such as: acute or chronic infection (osteomyelitis) in or around the surgical site; severe metabolic diseases, such as uncontrolled or poorly controlled diabetes mellitus, hyperparathyroidism, or osteomalacia; osteoporosis; high dose therapy with corticosteroids; and severe renal dysfunction, severe liver disease.
