Very well done presentation. So many pearls on the technique. Thank you so much.

Good points of comparison between GBR and ridge split . Great presentation . Thank you

Isaac Tawil - (4/2/2015 1:15 AM)

Thank you Dr Moghaddaa. In those cases of 4mm and less - If the position of the crest is in a favorable prosthetic position then I prefer to split. If the bone is more ligualized than I elect to augment. Using proper cuts with piezo along with bone expanders we can prevent labial fractures. Often just a horizontal cut can be enough. Omitting inferior cuts as well. Secondly we must use a narrower implant as to not over expand the plates. Therefore platform switch implant that can handle molar forces is pre requisite. Thank for your question. Hope to see you in NY for symposium. -isaac

Isaac , congrats, very well documented . my question: in cases with ridge width less than 4mm, by considering the possible risks like fracture of the buccal plate,do you prefer to go for ridge splitting or you prefer to do the GBR ? all the bests Dr Moghaddas

Isaac Tawil - (4/1/2015 1:23 AM)

Dr Salama - my humble thanks for your comments and questions. They are some of the more common and important questions regarding this technique. Minimum crestal ridge thickness would be 3mm. 1 mm cancellous 1 mm cortical on each side. There can be incredible regenerative potential when splitting and grafting as long as we don't pack our graft too tightly between the 2 cortical segments. I've found that the access to the medullary blood supply is even greater than when we decorticate during ridge augmentation procedures. Keeping the periosteum intact works wonderfully as long as we have enough bone remaining on both sides of our implants. If there is 6mm of crestal bone we can simply split without a full thickness flap as you mentioned quite predictably. With less thickness often cortical vertical releases are necessary and reinforcing those cuts with mineralized grafting material enhances our alveolar outcome. We've seen many cases with bone loss when too much stress on the crestal ridge is employed. Using a narrow implant design is paramount to avoid stress so a platform switching implant is important to provide an appropriate occlusal restorative table for our molars. In addition the increasing development of piezo devices has reduced necrosis in these cases. Regards -isaac

There are so many different versions of ridge splitting/expansion. I like your technique and excellent documentation. A few questions for you; 1. What is your "minimum" ridge thickness that you would consider splitting the ridge? 2. Many maintain the periosteum on the buccal segment, do you feel it is important? 3. Many have reported some crestal bone loss with this approach after healing and loading? Have you seen a similar result? thanks Dr. Salama

Ronni - zirconia abutments must have ti base as well. Full zirconia abutments are subject to fracture. The key is that the ti base must be tall enough. Often labs will shorten them thus loosing surface area for zirconia to bond with. Ti base should be treated with monobond or z-prime and a good cement like multi link hybrid should be employed. Of course this is all done at the lab level. There is nothing wrong with screw retained emax either although zirconia does handle stronger compressive forces. I've had only 2 come off on several hundred implants over the last 4 years and a simple recementation was done in office. Happy implanting.

Ronni Deniger - (3/26/2015 8:50 PM)

I have been using zirconia abutments for a little while and in the posterior I recently had two implant crowns become loose and the problem was the Zirconia internal hex broke away from the abutment so in the posterior crowns I went back to screw retained emax with titanium base.

Excelent work, congratulations!

Complex Full Mouth Rehabilitation in a Periodontal Patient
In this case that I originally presented at the dental XP summit last August at NYU but did not show the final results, we pretty much used the entire armamentarium currently available to us dentists. Many different procedures and protocols were applied in this complex case. The patient's main concern was long-lasting natural results. We decided to take no shortcuts and to practice as many gold standard procedures as possible, and thankfully the patient could afford the treatment. We are very happy with the outcome, might not be perfect but she is very happy. It has been six months now since we finished and everything is quite stable, and according to what we have been seeing here on XP and in the literature should remain quite stable for a long time.

Immediate Dentoalveolar Restoration - Labial Contour Grafting at the Time of Immediate Placement Premium Member Content

Immediate Dentoalveolar Restoration - Labial Contour Grafting at the Time of Immediate Placement
Until recently, tooth replacement at compromised sites in the aesthetic zone, required long-term treatment with possible undesirable complications in the tissue architecture. The Immediate Dentoalveolar Restoration (IDR) is a technique established to broaden indications for immediate loading on individual teeth. In this way, tissue losses with varied extensions are reconstructed in the same surgical session of implant placement and provisional crown installation, reducing the number of interventions and keeping predictability on aesthetic aspects. The IDR, which advocates minimally invasive procedures, will be presented as a viable and reproducible alternative.

Alternative & New Tendencies for Alveolar Reconstruction in Modern Implant Dentistry
Knowledge of bone biology and physiology are crucial for successful dento-alveolar reconstruction. The presentation will review the natural healing process of the bone and the sequence of events needed for proper regeneration. This process will then be discussed and compare with the present materials and technologies available in the market including alloplastics and allogenic materials. The role of the Stem Cells and rh-BMP2 will be exposed as part of these new trends in alveolar reconstruction for modern implant dentistry. Multiple cases will be presented demonstrating the versatility and outcomes in different clinical situations based on biological, bio-mechanics, and implant aesthetic needs.

Managing Esthetic Implant Complications Premium Member Content

Managing Esthetic Implant Complications
Dental implant success today is judged not only by osseointegration but also by bone, tissue stability and of course long term esthetic results. Cosmetic predictability can often be difficult to attain, and esthetic implant failures can be multifactorial and patient management issues. Once esthetic implant failures occur, many cannot be fully corrected. Some complications must be addressed by an interdisciplinary dental team. In this summary of case reports, surgical considerations are provided, including cases of facial asymmetry/recession due to facial implant placement or bone loss resulting from technique/treatment failures, as well as papillary deficiencies. Restorative considerations for correcting failures are also discussed.

Post-Traumatic Treatment of Maxillary Incisors by Immediate Dentoalveolar Restoration with Long-Term Follow-Up

Post-Traumatic Treatment of Maxillary Incisors by Immediate Dentoalveolar Restoration with Long-Term Follow-Up
Replacing both missing maxillary interior teeth is particularly challenging, especially in compromised sockets. The case report describes the management of an 18-year-old female patient, who suffered avulsion of both maxillary central incisors at 7 years of age. The multidisciplinary implant technique, called Immediate Dentoalveolar Restoration (IDR), included extraction of the injured teeth and a single procedure for immediate implant placement and restoration of the compromised sockets after root fracture and peri-apical lesion development were detected during orthodontic treatment. Successful esthetic and functional outcomes and reestablishment of the alveolar process after bone reconstruction were observed during the 3-year follow-up period. The predictable esthetic outcomes and soft and hard tissue stability that can be achieved following IDR are demonstrated.
