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.

henry salama - (11/23/2009 11:00 AM)

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?

Modern Implant Concepts in the Esthetic Zone
Managing aesthetic zone with dental implants is one of the most challenging and demanding treatments in dentistry due to biological limitations. From Sockets type I to healed ridges with hard and soft tissue deficiencies, everyday clinicians may face different situations to manage in the aesthetic zone. When we are talking about rebuilt and have long term success, autogenous hard and soft tissue still are the gold standard as the Socket shield technique promises to be to prevent bucal collapse in Immediate Implants. During the lecture the author will systematize how to face each different clinical situation, utilizing different autogenous tissues combined with a micro surgical approach, in order to have the best healing patterns and scar-less surgery.

Rehabilitation of the Extreme Atrophic Jaws
In this lecture you will learn several alternatives for the full arch rehabilitation of the jaws with different degrees of resorption. Several cases will be presented step-by-step with high-quality pictures for each technique explained. The main goals are to avoid complex regeneration procedures, to avoid zigomatic surgery and to still be able to perform immediate loading in the most compromised scenarios. All-on-Four technique, palatal approach technique, pterygoid implants and the most recent Subperiosteal Implants are some of the key-concepts presented.

This lecture will describe the use of autologous onlay block bone grafting for reconstruction of moderate to severe atrophic posterior mandibular alveolar ridge. This will include a discussion of the various options to this form of grafting, such as Short implants, Lingual positioning, nerve re-positioning, distraction osteogenesis, and GBR. The Mutli-Tier onlay Bone Graft Technique will be highlighted in this presentation. Additionally, a review of a recently submitted research paper of long term follow up of implants placed into autologous bone blocks harvested from the mandibular ramus, retromolar and sympheseal areas will be discussed. A description of surgical donor harvest sites in the mandible will also be performed as well as post op healing of these sites. Additional time will be spent reviewing causes of failure with bone blocks and implants placed into these sites.

Immediate Implant Placement into Extraction Sockets with Labial Plate Dehiscence Defects: A Clinical Case Series

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.

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…

The use of guided tissue regeneration (GTR) procedures for the treatment of gingival recession has shown encouraging results and is gaining clinical acceptance. However, attaining space maintenance beneath the membrane remains a problem for clinicians. Hence, the purpose of this pilot case study was to evaluate the effect of adjunctive demineralized freeze-dried bone allograft (DFDBA) placement during collagen membrane GTR-based root coverage procedures. Five patients with Miller Class I or II defects…
