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

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

Is There One or More Reasons to Optimize the PRF & PRP Protocols? Future Trends in Dentistry, Orthopedics and Facial Aesthetics
The “Advanced” PRF (A-PRF) and “Injectable” PRF (I-PRF) protocols were designed with this new concept. Indications are numerous in all medical fields where we need regeneration: bone, cartilage, skin etc... However, the use of growth factors is not a guarantee of long term stability, as they are active only at the beginning of the process. Numerous rules of tissue engineering have to be applied to maintain the regenerated bone through an adequate blood supply: this lecture is an enlightenment on the biological and mechanical conditions for long term stability of the bone: “grafted bone” or “bone around implants”.

The Bio-Derm Ridge Plumping Technique for Pontic Site Development
Seibert Class III apicocoronal and buccolingual alveolar ridge defects with associated gingival mucosal atrophy and absence of interdental papillae are common in edentulous areas within the anterior esthetic zone of the maxilla. Normal emergence profiles, critical to achieving esthetic restorations, require restoration of normal hard and soft tissue morphology, including re-establishment of adjacent interdental papillae.

Brånemarket al1 originally described autologous bone grafts used with dental implants,and they are now a well-accepted procedure in oral and maxillofacial rehabilitation. Placement of an end osseous implant requires sufficient bone volume for complete bone coverage.Further-more,the patter no fridge resorption ,which contributes to a nun favorable maxillo mandibular relationship,requires angulation of the implant and/or angled abutment,and affects the proximity of adjacent facial concavities (maxillary sinus,nasal cavity)and vital structures(mandibular nerve).
