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.

Modern Implant Dentistry: Rules of Engagement in the Esthetic Zone - Part 1 of 2
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.

Fibrin-Guided Bone Regeneration: Guidelines of a Simple, Predictable, & Low Risk Technique Premium Member Content

Fibrin-Guided Bone Regeneration: Guidelines of a Simple, Predictable, & Low Risk Technique
This lecture is focused on an effective regenerative approach, but at low knowledge. The goal is to provide a new skill in favor of well-established techniques. The Fibrin Sealant (FS) is an additional clot of human origin. It has adhesive, sealant and inductive action stimulating hard and soft-tissue regeneration. The FS, mixed with bone chips and biomaterials, allows a better handling of the graft that, becoming plastic and moldable, adapts perfectly to bony defects without dispersion of granules. It’s effective also on wound protection achieving a faster healing of soft-tissue. This approach is excellent in the socket preservation and in the peri-implant regeneration on "closed" sites where the implants are inside the defects.

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.

Socket Gafting with the use of Autologous Bone - an Experimental Study in the Dog

Socket Gafting with the use of Autologous Bone - an Experimental Study in the Dog
In five beagle dogs, the distal roots of the third and fourth mandibular premolars were removed. The sockets in the right or the left jaw quadrant were grafted with either anorganic bovine bone or with chips of autologous bone harvested from the buccal bone plate. After 3 months of healing, biopsies of the experimental sites were sampled, prepared for buccal–lingual ground sections and examined with respect to size and composition.
