Great video! If you were to do this procedure without a piezo what burs would you suggest using?

Very good brief & infomative

kevin potocsky - (3/15/2012 9:37 AM)

if you dont have a piezo could you do verical and crestal bone cuts with a handpiece? and what bur? thanks

Fabulous :)

dear sir,i have done a similar case where we created the green stick fracture using surgical disk and closed the site for revascularization, after a month the site was crestally opened and using a chisel like urs we tried to expand over the crestal green stick fracture the point was to expand and place the implant as the bone would expand over the fracture line, unfortunately we didnt acheive the result. i am not able to under stand why, although we managed to place the implant conventionally expansion but the desired result was not acheive.this is the article references.

Hossam & Paolo; Yes, the minimum thickness for ridge splitting is 2mm. Less than that and Block or GBR is best. As for vertical cut depth, yes approx. 2/3 of the length of the future implant. Yes, I have used the Meisenger kit and iut is very creative and user friendly.
regards to you both

Dear Dr Salam is there a minmum thickness at the crest of the ridge less than which we should shift to block graft? i have some cases which have extremely atrophic ridge that buccal and palatal cortex are fused from the crest of the ridge to 8 to 10 mm apically, can i still use splitting in such cases

Paolo Giuliani - (4/7/2010 5:26 PM)

Maurice, excellent work. I have the Meisenger bone spreading crest control kit. Same idea, although there is a pretty cool horizontal spreader that wedges the split crest without tapping. Am I correct to assume that your blateral vertical depth cuts are about 2/3 the final length of the implants you intend on using, in order to avoid a greenstick and lose implant fixation? Any difference on the mandible?
Thanks!

Maurice Salama - (12/14/2009 1:29 PM)

Simon; Thanks for the post. The vertical cuts allow for easier displacement of the segment of bone when splitting. Without these cuts you have a higher incidence of "green stick" fracture of the buccal transport segment and higher complication rate. Additionally, although you may still expand without these cuts, you can gain far greater ridge expansion with them. Regarding the bone graft, I placed and secured collagen membranes on both sides with tacks on the labial. I left some particles on the crest of the ridge without a membrane as I did not feel it to be necessary here. This can certainly be debated, and an additional occlusal collagen barrier membrane would not have been a wrong approach. It appeared to me that most of the graft was placed for buccal augmentation and I was not as concerned regarding the vertical augmentation. Welcome to the blog and please keep up the posts.

Interdisciplinary Dynamics of Complex Therapy: An Integrated Approach to Treatment Planning
This presentation challenges and guides clinicians to ask, and answer, fundamental questions that are required for designing successful treatment plans when facing complex cases. 1) What do I know (DIAGNOSIS), 2) Where do I apply it (EFFICACY), and 3) When do I apply it (SEQUENCE OF THERAPY). A special emphasis in this presentation will be placed on communication between team members, including clinicians, staff and laboratory. Methods of communications, such as digital design and mock-ups are also highlighted as part of an integrated approach to Treatment planning.

Managing Technology for Best Outcomes and Productivity
Digital technology provides tools to improve planning, clinical execution, prosthetic design, manufacturing, maintenance, and cost of care. Dental professionals need to understand the value of individual technologies as well as the benefit derived from linking them together. During this presentation, a business model and clinical cases will be used to illustrate how a number of digital technologies can impact outcomes and productivity.

Tissue Engineering and Platelet Derived Growth Factors: Evidence Based Therapy
Platelet derived growth factors are now routinely utilized in reconstructive therapy. This presentation describes very detailed and evidence based guidelines for clinicians interested in enhancing their abilities in tissue engineering, especially as it relates to bone augmentation. Specifically, while successful bone augmentation requires the standard surgical parameters of space maintenance, low pressure on the grafts and tension-free flap closure, optimization of this goal requires management and enhancement of the local biological conditions with growth factors. Towards that end, platelet concentrates through the constant release of growth factors are able to promote and enhance new vascularization, provide plasma protein, normal lipidemia, as well as increased collagen and fibrin activity.

The Anatomical Foundation of Implant Surgery
Knowledge of Surgical Anatomy is a critical foundation for any clinician involved in implant dentistry. In order for dentists to perform safe and successful bone grafting, implant surgery as well as effectively manage complications, they must first be well versed in the fundamentals of Surgical Anatomy of the head region with emphasis on the Maxilla, Mandible, as well as the roof and floor of the mouth. This Dentalxp presentation, in part, describes the objectives of one component of a comprehensive hands-on surgical Anatomy course being offered live in partnership with Dentalxp. This section emphasizes the Surgical Anatomy of the Maxilla and Maxillary Sinus as an example of what is covered in one section of the course lectures.

Techniques for the Use of CT Imaging for the Fabrication of Surgical Guides
Implant dentistry has evolved into one of the most predictable treatment alternatives for partially and completely edentulous patients. The initial excitement about successful osseointegration has allowed clinicians to offer an extended set of treatment alternatives that include single tooth replacement to full mouth reconstruction. Pioneering protocols of the early 1980s relied on a two-stage surgical approach that allowed for the biological aspects of osseointegration to be achieved at the cellular level, insuring long-term success. These procedures often required extended periods of time to complete. Through strategic marketing and word of mouth, demand for implant-related treatment continues to grow and has compelled clinicians to search for new and improved methods to deliver such care within a shorter time period without sacrificing accuracy. As treatment protocols have progressed...

Developing Optimal Peri-Implant Papillae within the Esthetic Zone: Guided Soft Tissue Augmentation
Osseointegrated dental implants have enjoyed long-term success in the rehabilitation of totally edentulous patients. Every aspect of traditional treatment planning protocols continues to be re-evaluated and updated to better incorporate the benefits of osseointegration into clinical practice. This is particularly evident as dentistry has committed to fully integrating this approach into the more varied and demanding environment of the partially edentulous patient. Along with the many benefits of added predictability and enhanced options, the ever-evolving role of osseointegrated implants in the treatment pf the partially edentulous jaw has also created new challenged. Unlike the fully edentulous individual who maintains the implant-restorative interface beyond the lip perimeter, many partially edentulous patients undergo the transition within the esthetic zone.

Immediate Loading of Osseotitie Implants-After 4 months

Immediate Loading of Osseotitie Implants-After 4 months
A growing number of clinical reports show that early and immediate loading of endosseous implants may lead to predictable osseointegration; however, these studies provide mostly short- to mid-term results based only on clinical mobility and radiographic observation. Other methods are needed to detect the possible presence of a thin fibrous interposition of tissue that could increase in the course of time and lead to clinical mobility. A histologic evaluation was performed on two immediately loaded…
