Ridge Splitting and/or GBR - Maxilla vs. Mandible - Part 1 of 2

Description:
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.

Excellent video! I have always split the maxilla and spread with osteotomes. This video removed a few barriers I had to splitting the mandible.

Dear dr Lee where its the continue of this great lecture? regards Andres Paraud

Tnx.Dear Dr Lee ,is it more predictable to do ridge splitting in mandible when we have broad base comparing to have parallel walls from crestal area to the apical?when you do the horizontal osteotomy ,the depth of should be similar to the height of the implant or more than that?will you do ridge splitting in posterior mandible with parallel walls and 3mm thickness or you prefer to do GBR or block grafts in these cases to reduce the risk of fracture?thanks again .

Dear Dr. Omid, thanks for watching the video! You are right that maxilla is more spongious and easier to split. But, due to concavity of apical region on pre maxilla, the angulation of implant becomes too buccal. Therefore, I recommend GBR on pre maxilla over ridge splitting. However, mandibular ridge is lingually inclined by 20 degree, so implant angulation is more favorable after ridge split. Thanks

omid moghaddas - (7/25/2012 2:40 PM)

i am agree in some part that ridge splitting is more predictable in mandible,but on the other hand ,there is more sponinuous bone available in maxilla so it can be more easily condensed with less risk of facture during spltting.please tell me if this belif is right.thanks so much for this perfect and comprehensive presentation Dr Lee

A Clinical Update in Bone Regeneration: Autogenous Bone vs. BMP-2 Premium Member Content

A Clinical Update in Bone Regeneration: Autogenous Bone vs. BMP-2
For historical and biological reasons autogenous bone has long been considered the gold standard of bone graft materials. For bone augmentation procedures autogenous grafts provided predictable volume gains, favorable bone quality with short healing periods. However, the need to harvest the graft and associated morbidity are inherent disadvantages. The choice of a technique for bone augmentation is dependent on a number of factors including the use of bone substitutes. More recently recombinant human bone morphogenetic protein (rhBMP-2) has been shown to be effective in repairing buccal wall defects from extractions and in sinus bone grafting. The use of rhBMP-2 is currently under clinical investigation as a replacement for autograft in ridge augmentation process.

Managing the Extraction Site - Optimal Preservation and Enhancement Techniques Premium Member Content

Managing the Extraction Site - Optimal Preservation and Enhancement Techniques
There is rarely a day that clinicians do not have to deal with an extraction site. If implant therapy is a consideration, then bone and soft tissue quantity and quality must be factored into treatment options. The ideal opportunity for bone preservation exists at the time of tooth extraction. All too often this opportunity is lost. Extraction techniques will be demonstrated that not only preserve but augment the amount of alveolar bone. The importance of piezosurgery, atraumatic surgical technique, the use of bone grafts, resorbable membranes and growth factors will be elucidated along with soft tissue enhancement.

Physical And Chemical Properties Of Commercially Available Mineralized Bone Allograft
Bone graft materials are critical to the success of dental implants when there is a need to increase the volume of bone in a defect. The surface properties of these graft materials will have a profound impact on the outcome of the graft procedure. The clinician has many choices of bone graft substitutes when augmenting bony deficits. Allograft bone is the most widely used class of bone graft substitutes. Within this class there are a number of different bone allografts, which are manufactured utilizing widely varying processing techniques. There also appears to be a wide range of results in the published literature across the spectrum of different bone allografts. This in-vitro study evaluated chemical and surface properties of five different commercially available mineralized bone allografts.

Influence of Thin Mucosal Tissues on Crestal Bone Stability Around Implants With Platform Switching: A 1-year Pilot Study

Influence of Thin Mucosal Tissues on Crestal Bone Stability Around Implants With Platform Switching: A 1-year Pilot Study
The aim of this pilot study was to determine what effect thin mucosal tissues can have on crestal bone stability around implants with platform switching. Within the limitations of this pilot study it can be concluded that implants with platform switching did not preserve crestal bone better in comparison with implants with traditional implant-abutment connection if, at the time of implant placement, thin mucosal tissues were present.
