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.

Ridge Splitting and/or GBR - Maxilla vs. Mandible - Part 1 of 2
Mandibular ridge splitting has been a clinical challenge due to high density of cortical bone. Therefore, some clinicians recommends two stage approach to overcome this issue. We will also present an unique ridge splitting technique that is easy to do and predictable using one stage approach.

Bone Augmentation & Vascular Enhancement Concepts: It’s Time to Make it Simple! Premium Member Content

Bone Augmentation & Vascular Enhancement Concepts: It’s Time to Make it Simple!
The purpose of this presentation is to make the participant think biology first and not mechanic first. A biological thinking will dramatically simplify vertical and/or horizontal bone augmentation procedures. We will also be introducing a new approach for the simplification of soft tissue handling: the Soft Brushing Technique, that will allow the coronal advancement of both buccal and lingual flaps, but also the palatal flap without the need for periosteal releasing incisions.

Regenerative Procedures for Implant Site Optimization: Establishing the Perio-Implant Interface Premium Member Content

Regenerative Procedures for Implant Site Optimization: Establishing the Perio-Implant Interface
Emerging concepts in implant dentistry have allowed bone preservation to become a reality, thus reducing the need for extensive augmentation procedures. Nevertheless, clinicians are still confronted with atrophic defects that require complex regenerative strategies for dental implant rehabilitation. This presentation will focus on some of the essential elements for a predictable regenerative protocol in implant site development. A discussion will include the use of defect topography as a guide in choosing a suitable augmentation technique. Several considerations that allow for tension free wound closure will be reviewed. Furthermore, an evidence based approach in graft material selection will be presented. Clinical cases will then be reviewed, to demonstrate how to integrate the presented principles into daily clinical practice.

Flapless Postextraction Socket Implant Placement in the Esthetic Zone: Part 1. The Effect of Bone Grafting and/or Provisional Restoration on Facial-Palatal Ridge Dimensional Change
The dental literature has reportted vertical soft tissue changes that can occur with immediate implant placement, bone grafting, and provisional restoration ranging from a gain or loss of 1.0mm. However, little is known of the effects of facial-palatal collapse of the ridge due to these clinical procedures. Based upon treatment modalities rendered, an ensuing contour change can occur with significant negative esthetic consequences. The results of a retrospective clinical cohort study evaluating the change in horizontal ridge dimension associated with implant placement in anterior postextraction sockets are presented for four treatment groups. Therefore, it is recommended to place a bone graft and contoured healing abutment or provisional restoration at the time of flapless postextraction socket implant placement.
