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

Bio-Surgery; Tips for More Biological and Prosthodontic Approach
In oral rehabilitation, obtaining a good aesthetic outcome is no longer enough for our patients. It is imperative that these good results do prevail in time. The best way to achieve this goal, is to correctly diagnose each individual clinical case, and to choose Biological tools and Biological treatment techniques, that respect our own physiology and Nature. Through this lecture, the authors try to share a few Surgical and Prosthodontic Bio-tips in Implant Dentistry, that in a simple and predictable way, can lead us to a great long lasting aesthetic results.

Advanced Bone Grafting Techniques: Part 1 - Autogenous Bone Blocks in the Reconstruction of the Atrophic Mandibular Ridge Premium Member Content

Advanced Bone Grafting Techniques: Part 1 - Autogenous Bone Blocks in the Reconstruction of the Atrophic Mandibular Ridge
This lecture will describe the use of autologous onlay block bone grafting for reconstruction of moderate to severe atrophic posterior mandibular alveolar ridge. This will include a discussion of the various options to this form of grafting, such as Short implants, Lingual positioning, nerve repositioning, distraction osteogenesis, and GBR. The Mutli-Tier onlay Bone Graft Technique will be highlighted in this presentation. Additionally, a review of a recently submitted research paper of long term follow up of implants placed into autologous bone blocks harvested from the mandibular ramus, retromolar and sympheseal areas will be discussed.

Bone Graft Solutions in the Treatment of a Defective & Deficient Ridges; Advantages of Combined Therapy
More patients are treated with implants than ever before. Unfortunately, many have insufficient bone available to support an implant prosthesis. This presentation describes the utilization of several different augmentation approaches for the severely resorbed ridge and dentally handicapped fully endentulous patient. Current concepts related to autogenous bone harvest, 3D bone augmentation combined with blood born bioactive modifiers and digital planning are defined. Video and high resolution images are utilized to further describe these approaches.

Esthetic Zone Reconstruction: Synergy of Hard and Soft Tissue Grafting Premium Member Content

Esthetic Zone Reconstruction: Synergy of Hard and Soft Tissue Grafting
The loss of alveolar ridge contour in the esthetic zone compromises both esthetics and function. This clinical presentation will focus on the application of both hard and soft tissue grafting in the esthetic zone implementing state of the art interactive CT diagnosis and treatment planning for optimal esthetic implant reconstruction. Emphasis will be on indications, graft and harvest site assessment, timing, and use of bioactive modifiers including BMP, PRGF and PDGF. The surgical protocol utilizing allogeneic and autogenous grafts in conjunction with connective tissue grafts, acellular dermis matrix, and related soft tissue procedures to avoid functional and esthetic pitfalls will be featured. Pre and post-grafting prosthetic workup, interactive CT graft assessment and perio prosthetic driven implant planning, stent driven implant placement, and computer milled abutment fabrication including guided surgery will be included.

Atrophic Posterior Maxillan and Mandible: Alveolar Ridge Reconstruction with Mandibular Block Autografts
Autogenous bone grafts have been used for many years for alveolar ridge augmentation and are still considered to be the gold standard for jaw reconstruction. The use of these grafts with osseointegrated implants was originally discussed by Brånemark et al., who used the iliac crest as the donor site. For repair of most localized alveolar defects, however, bone grafts from the mandible offer advantages over iliac crest grafts. These include the proximity of donor and recipient sites, convenient surgical access, decreased donor site morbidity and decreased cost. This article focuses on posterior maxillary and mandibular osseous augmentation in a staged approach for implant placement. Both horizontal and vertical deficiencies are addressed with the use of symphysis and ramus buccal shelf donor block bone via case presentations.

Intraoral Autogenous Block Onlay Bone Grafting for ExtensiveReconstruction of Atrophic Maxillary Alveolar Ridges

Intraoral Autogenous Block Onlay Bone Grafting for ExtensiveReconstruction of Atrophic Maxillary Alveolar Ridges
Autologous bone grafting used with dental implants was originally described by Bränemarketal in 1975, and is now a well-accepted procedure in oral and maxillofacial rehabilitation.Placement of an endosseous implant requires sufficient bone volume for complete bone coverage. Furthermore, the pattern of ridge resorption contributes to an unfavorable maxillomandibular relationship, requires angulations of the implants and/or angled abutments, and affects the proximity of adjacent facial concavities(maxillary sinus, nasal cavity) and vital structures(mandibular nerve).
