Controlled Ridge Splitting (CRS)

Description:
To demonstrate a new technique of controlled ridge splitting (CRS) in severely atrophied maxillary cases as an alternative to autogenous block graft. Twenty cases were completed using a controlled ridge splitting (CRS) technique with a total of 65 implants were placed in severely atrophied Maxillae and followed after the implants were loaded. Results: The CRS technique was used in very complex cases, where the alternative method will be autogenous block graft. A total of 65 tapered implants were placed. The implants diameter ranged between 3.25-5mm with a length ranged between 10-13mm. The implants were restored and were followed for 1-3 years. All implants achieved osseointegration and continue to have successful prostheses. Conclusion: The CRS is a predictable treatment option and could be a good alternative to autogenous block grafts is severely atrophic maxillae.

Fred; Opacious porcelain was used.

Yes hello I'm not sure if my question was posted so i will ask Dr.Boutros again What type of alloy & porcelain, was used in the recent article Zimmer Eztetic 3.1 to mask out the abutment,I would like to use this technique on similar cases. Thank you, best regards, fred

Beautiful cases. Thanks

Maurice; I try to split the flap when possible but most of the time it ends up a full thickness flap which as you indicated it might compromise blood supply? but we can still can get enough blood supply from the the the flap and bone. The minimum ridge that I was able to split base on a CT is 2.85mm which was shown in one of the cases.

Kevin; You can get the kit from Karl Schumacher here in the US or Zepf in Germany.

Robert, The reason why teeth were extracted was extensive decay and since the patient was involved in a car accident and due to extended hospital stay and due to insurance limitations, the teeth were extracted without any site development. If you like more detailed info about the case I will be more than happy to discuss it.

Indrajeet; Concerning the denture if we are having the patient use the same denture, I would relief any pressure and do a soft reline and if possible I would have the patient hold off on using the denture for at 1-2 weeks. you can get the kit from Karl Schumacher here in the US or Zepf in Germany and the best way is to google the info.

Yosef; You can get the wedges from Karl Schumacher and as far as I know they sell them separate.

Ronnie; Yes I place the allograft between the split ridge and the implants as well followed by the membrane.

Surgical Management of Posterior Maxilla Premium Member Content

Surgical Management of Posterior Maxilla
Replacement of missing teeth with dental Implants in the posterior maxilla presents unique challenges due to maxillary sinus, less quality of bone, and increased occlusal load. The surgical objectives to meet functional and aesthetic goals include enhancement of both quantity and quality of bone as well as ideal placement of dental implants for restorations that mimic nature. In this presentation, Dr. H. Ryan Kazemi discusses current surgical techniques in implant site development in the posterior maxilla including extraction site grafting, sinus lift, bi-directional bone graft, and osseodensification for bone management.

Immediate Implant Placement into Extraction Sockets with Labial Plate Dehiscence Defects: A Clinical Case Series
To measure the buccal plate reconstruction of extraction sockets with labial plate dehiscence defects using a bone allograft in combination with an absorbable collagen membrane and a custom-healing abutment at the time of tooth removal. Implants placed into sockets with labial plate dehiscence defects demonstrated radiographic reformation of the labial plate dehiscence defect at 6 to 9 months post-treatment. The net gain in labial plate on CBCT in L1 and L2 was 3.0 mm, where 0 mm existed at pre-treatment. The minimum amount of labial plate thickness of 2.0 mm was achieved in all treated sites, evaluated radiographically at 6-9 months post-operatively, in a single procedure, without flap elevation and maintaining the gingival architecture and satisfactory esthetics.

Alloplastic Bone Substitutes Around Dental Implants

Alloplastic Bone Substitutes Around Dental Implants
The repair of osseous defects has been a goal in dentistry for many decades. Subsequently, within the last several years, there has been an emergence of a new class of materials in dentistry referred to as synthetic bone. Finding the ideal bone substitute material has been the goal of researchers for many years. In attempting to achieve this ideal material, dental practitioners have tried with varying degrees of success: autogenous and demineralized freeze-dried bone, allografts of plastic, carbon…
