Very well done presentation. So many pearls on the technique. Thank you so much.

Good points of comparison between GBR and ridge split . Great presentation . Thank you

Isaac Tawil - (4/2/2015 1:15 AM)

Thank you Dr Moghaddaa. In those cases of 4mm and less - If the position of the crest is in a favorable prosthetic position then I prefer to split. If the bone is more ligualized than I elect to augment. Using proper cuts with piezo along with bone expanders we can prevent labial fractures. Often just a horizontal cut can be enough. Omitting inferior cuts as well. Secondly we must use a narrower implant as to not over expand the plates. Therefore platform switch implant that can handle molar forces is pre requisite. Thank for your question. Hope to see you in NY for symposium. -isaac

Isaac , congrats, very well documented . my question: in cases with ridge width less than 4mm, by considering the possible risks like fracture of the buccal plate,do you prefer to go for ridge splitting or you prefer to do the GBR ? all the bests Dr Moghaddas

Isaac Tawil - (4/1/2015 1:23 AM)

Dr Salama - my humble thanks for your comments and questions. They are some of the more common and important questions regarding this technique. Minimum crestal ridge thickness would be 3mm. 1 mm cancellous 1 mm cortical on each side. There can be incredible regenerative potential when splitting and grafting as long as we don't pack our graft too tightly between the 2 cortical segments. I've found that the access to the medullary blood supply is even greater than when we decorticate during ridge augmentation procedures. Keeping the periosteum intact works wonderfully as long as we have enough bone remaining on both sides of our implants. If there is 6mm of crestal bone we can simply split without a full thickness flap as you mentioned quite predictably. With less thickness often cortical vertical releases are necessary and reinforcing those cuts with mineralized grafting material enhances our alveolar outcome. We've seen many cases with bone loss when too much stress on the crestal ridge is employed. Using a narrow implant design is paramount to avoid stress so a platform switching implant is important to provide an appropriate occlusal restorative table for our molars. In addition the increasing development of piezo devices has reduced necrosis in these cases. Regards -isaac

There are so many different versions of ridge splitting/expansion. I like your technique and excellent documentation. A few questions for you; 1. What is your "minimum" ridge thickness that you would consider splitting the ridge? 2. Many maintain the periosteum on the buccal segment, do you feel it is important? 3. Many have reported some crestal bone loss with this approach after healing and loading? Have you seen a similar result? thanks Dr. Salama

Ronni - zirconia abutments must have ti base as well. Full zirconia abutments are subject to fracture. The key is that the ti base must be tall enough. Often labs will shorten them thus loosing surface area for zirconia to bond with. Ti base should be treated with monobond or z-prime and a good cement like multi link hybrid should be employed. Of course this is all done at the lab level. There is nothing wrong with screw retained emax either although zirconia does handle stronger compressive forces. I've had only 2 come off on several hundred implants over the last 4 years and a simple recementation was done in office. Happy implanting.

Ronni Deniger - (3/26/2015 8:50 PM)

I have been using zirconia abutments for a little while and in the posterior I recently had two implant crowns become loose and the problem was the Zirconia internal hex broke away from the abutment so in the posterior crowns I went back to screw retained emax with titanium base.

Excelent work, congratulations!

Site Preparation & Osseodensification in Bone Management
Today's implant arena involves not only the understanding of procedures but also the science behind wound healing. Often new technologies and instrumentation evolves that have a significant impact on what we are able to do clinically. Piezosurgical devices, periotomes, osteotomes, hydraulic sinus devices, neurosurgical drills, and the "PET" (Partial Extraction Therapies) system are just a short list of those that have made surgery more efficient and less traumatic for our patients. Osseodensification is another concept that can be added to this long list. This lecture will speak about new age bone management concepts and how these technologies may be able to assist us. Potential issues and focus on use will be touched upon as well.

Surgical Protocols for Socket Type 2 in the Aesthetic Zone
The topic of this presentation is an implant surgical procedures for a socket type 2 (socket missing buccal bone) in an aesthetic area, with emphasis on modified IVAN* technique for socket preservation. IVAN* stands for inter-positional vascularised augmentation neogenesis. Author`s guidelines for selection of appropriate surgical protocols for sockets missing buccal bone wall, protocols that are proved to be most effective, are presented. Early implant placement with GBR, prosthetic socket preservation and socket augmentation with socket sealing are shortly presented as alternatives for some cases. From author modified IVAN technique is shown step by step.

Interpositional Bone Grafts to Treat the Posterior Atrophic Mandible Premium Member Content

Interpositional Bone Grafts to Treat the Posterior Atrophic Mandible
This presentation analyzes the interpositional bone graft or inlay technique, discussing the reconstructive surgical approach. Horizontal osteotomy with the interposition of bone in the form of a “sandwich” involves raising a coronal osteotomized segment of the mandible, which is still attached to the lingual periosteum, and interpositioning a block bone graft. This technique guarantees a dual vascular supply to the inlay graft from the lingual periosteum and from the residual bone; it also allows optimum use of the native basal bone, which should be less prone to resorption. The advantages and disadvantages of the inlay technique are compared with other commonly used augmentation techniques in the management of posterior mandibular atrophies.

This lecture will describe the use of autologous onlay block bone grafting for reconstruction of moderate to severe atrophic maxillary alveolar ridge. This will include a discussion of the various options to this form of grafting, such as short implants, maxillary sinus augmentation, sub-nasal elevation procedure, connective tissue grafting and soft tissue manipulation, Le-Fort I down fracture/osteotomy and the use of progenitor cells: bone marrow aspirating concentrated. 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.

Alloplastic Bone Substitutes Around Dental Implants

Alloplastic Bone Substitutes Around Dental Implants
The repair of osseous defects has been a goal in dentistry for many decades. Subsequently, within the last several years, there has been an emergence of a new class of materials in dentistry referred to as synthetic bone. Finding the ideal bone substitute material has been the goal of researchers for many years. In attempting to achieve this ideal material, dental practitioners have tried with varying degrees of success: autogenous and demineralized freeze-dried bone, allografts of plastic, carbon…
