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

Ridge Split Procedure with Simultaneous Implant Placement Premium Member Content

Ridge Split Procedure with Simultaneous Implant Placement
A ridge split procedure has been suggested in literature for increasing the bucco-lingual width of the alveolar ridge prior to implant placement. The procedure can be performed in one or two surgical appointments. It is usually combined with additional augmentation utilizing a bone substitute material and a collagen membrane. In this video Dr Kher demonstrates a ridge split procedure that has been facilitated using a piezo surgical device. Following that he places 2 implants for the proposed restoration of a missing maxillary canine and first bicuspid after preparing the ossteotomy site using expansion screws. Thereafter he uses a CPS putty to graft the gap between the implants to fill all voids and achieves a satisfactory tension free closure.

CBCT as an Interdisciplinary Diagnostic and Treatment Planning Tool
The era of in-office Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) has unequivocally transformed interdisciplinary dentofacial therapy (IDT). While in-office CBCT imaging may be the latest technological breakthrough enhancing opportunities for treatment planning, it is diagnosis that has remained the constant variable critical for predictable patient outcomes.

Complete Management of the Implant Site: From Simple Cases to Complex Situations Premium Member Content

Complete Management of the Implant Site: From Simple Cases to Complex Situations
The health and the structure of the peri-implant tissue is vital for a long term prognosis of aesthetic and functional dental treatments. The prevalence of peri-implant diseases and recessions is a problem that must be overcome by a perfect treatment planning, along with a step-by-step design of the future restorations. When the clinician places an implant, he must consider the 3D positioning regarding the hard and soft tissue. When one decide to restore an implant, he must be aware of the gingival volume and it’s position. In this presentation, we want to show fully documented cases, from bone grafting, soft tissue enhancement, to final restorations.

Immediate Implants: Partial / Full Arch Rehabilitation & GBR - Part 2
By scientific studies produced in recent years has been confirmed, in selected cases, the validity of the post-extraction implants. The use of this method implies a lower emotional impact, a single surgery and a healing often better for the patient. We will be discussed traumatic extraction methods, perfect insertion of the implants with or without bone regeneration with bone substitutes and membranes and the opportunity to combine an advanced method as immediate implant with the execution of an immediate loading to restore aesthetics in more complex cases.
