When the buccal bone fractures, but stays in place as it appears in this video, it always heals ? With the addition of autgenous bone and fibrin and collagen membrane, there is much support. Some Drs. do not use the fibrin ?

Sam Busich - (11/25/2009 12:42 PM)

I agree with Henry. As for one of the other comments about ridge splitting vs. expansion, take a look at Dr. Ady Palti's lectures on XP. It was very well done but I don't believe you can easily split a 1mm ridge very effectively as a previous post suggested even if you were Hilt Tatum, also an Xpert on this site.

answering Dr. Sam Jain,

No question that often ridge expansion/splitting alone forces implant positioning toward a more palatal orientation because most narrow/deficient ridges are buccally deficient to start with. I believe that the one significant advantage of ridge expansion/splitting is the ability to place the implant with only one surgical intervention thereby improving time and patient management in non-esthetically demanding sites. The one disadvantage is a more palatal implant placement which I overcome by placing the implant a little deeper allowing a longer and more gradual emergence profile without a ridgelap facially. If, however, ideal implant placement is necessary for achieving predictable esthetic endpoints then I prefer a staged approach where I first augment the ridge buccally and return some months later for more ideal implant positioning.
I hope that helps.

Dr. Hilt Tatum can expand a ridge that is 1.0mm wide using osteotomes. He is able to direct the direction of the expansion. See him in Puerto Rico at his course.

Dr Salama and Dr Anitua:
I use the ridge expansion tech a lot and build the facial with autogenous bone particles and collagen membrane and the implants come out ok ...BUT... the implant position is always compromised ie to the lingual and off angle and the crown restoration with facial cantilever.

Most informative. Thanks. The BTI implant seems to be an aggressive cutting implants ideal for this technique. How would this design compare with the traditional design of a tapered screw-vent implant such as Zimmer’s and are the apex diameters smaller in comparison with similar size platform Zimmer implants

henry salama - (11/21/2009 1:36 AM)

George;
Yes. Although the expansion drills in this video are made by BTI, they can be utilized with any implant system. I also utilize these drills when performing ridge splitting techniques. Thanks for the post.
regards
Dr. Salama

Can this technique be done with any other type of implants?

Pre-Implant Ridge Bioengineering: The Bone Block Allograft Technique - Part 1 of 2
Narrow ridge deficiencies can limit dental implant placement. As well, the pain and various complications associated with chin, ramus and hip bone block grafts for ridge augmentation purposes discourage many from pursuing this method of treatment. The 'bone block allograft' technique helps overcome narrow ridge limitations for dental implant placement as well as minimizing surgical post-op pain, risks and complications. This is an extremely versatile procedure which can be performed in the anterior and posterior sextants of both the maxillary and mandibular arches.

This presentation will focus on the interdisciplinary relationship of the restorative dentist, periodontist and orthodontist to reconstruct the soft tissue foundation for all of these restorative options in anterior tooth replacement. The diagnosis of deficiencies as well as the varied treatment options will be discussed in detail. This includes periodontal crown lengthening, esthetic periodontal plastic soft tissue grafting procedures as well as prescription adjunctive orthodontic tooth movement to manipulate the soft tissue foundation prior to or subsequent with the restorative options of implants, bridges, or pontic replacement.

The Utilization of Advanced Flap Management & GBR to Large Alveolar Ridge Defects Premium Member Content

The Utilization of Advanced Flap Management & GBR to Large Alveolar Ridge Defects
Proper flap management is critical and key to obtain tension-free flap closure at large 3D ridge augmentation sites. The objective of this presentation is to highlight the most relevant clinical aspects to reduce tension during wound closure, therefore reducing associated complications, namely flap dehiscences that predispose our patients to post operative infection and reduced bone formation. Several clinical tips will be highlighted via multimedia and video to help the clinician increase their own predictability with these kind of procedures. Clinical cases will be presented to demonstrate the steps discussed in detail.

Reconstruction of a Horizontal and Vertical Bone defect using The Cortical Lamina Technique

Reconstruction of a Horizontal and Vertical Bone defect using The Cortical Lamina Technique
For many years guided bone regeneration has been a challenge in oral and implant surgery. Many techniques and devices have been used in trying to regenerate and reconstruct resorbed edentulous ridges. The literature in the field is scarce due to the impossibility to perform RCT on such lesions, therefore the judgement of the international community is based on case reports and retrospective studies. In the last ten years a new device has proved to be quite successful and predictable on top of showing a very low morbidity, a membrane made of xenogeneic collagenated bone with features that are very different from any other material used in the past. This paper will show the application of the cortical lamina technique where a vertical and horizontal defect was corrected and successfully restored.

Retrospective Evaluation of Crestal Bone Changes Around Implants With Reduced Abutment Diameter Placed Non-Submerged and at Subcrestal Positions: The Effect of Bone Grafting at Implant Placement

Retrospective Evaluation of Crestal Bone Changes Around Implants With Reduced Abutment Diameter Placed Non-Submerged and at Subcrestal Positions: The Effect of Bone Grafting at Implant Placement
One method to measure the success of dental implant treatment is to evaluate marginal peri-implant bone-level changes and stability over time. The location of the fixture–abutment interface (FAI) can be of major importance when the goal is to construct esthetic restorations. In these situations the FAI is often placed in a more apical position to create an ideal emergence profile for the prosthetic construction. However, several animal studies have reported that placement of the FAI in a subcrestal position may result in peri-implant marginal bone loss. The aim of the present study is to evaluate the effect of bone grafting of the defect between the bone crest and the coronal aspect of the implant for implants with reduced abutment diameters placed non-submerged and in subcrestal positions.

Peridontal Osseous Surgery and Root Resective Therapy

Peridontal Osseous Surgery and Root Resective Therapy
Historically, osseous surgery was performed to eliminate infected bone. Early in the 20th century clinicians realized that periodontally affected bone was not actually infected. Instead of an invasive bacterial infection, chronic inflammation was responsible for bone destruction. This finding changed the rationale for periodontal therapy and led to modern concepts of osseous surgery. Currently accepted approaches are based on guidelines, parameters, and definitions published by many highly respected…
