The Role of Piezo-Surgical Ridge Split Technique in the Reconstruction of Ridge Deficiencies - Part 1 of 2

Description:
In this 1st of a 2 part lecture, Dr. Dan Holtzclaw reviews multiple ridge augmentation techniques for the reconstruction of ridge width deficiencies in order to facilitate more optimal placement of dental implants. One particularly effective technique involves splitting the resorbed ridge and filling the split with bone. Dr. Holtzclaw discusses the role of piezoelectric hinge assisted ridge split (PHARS) technique as an additional new protocol to help accomplish this endeavor more efficiently.

GREAT .ENJOYED IT A LOT.my question is should the depth of the osteotomy from the crest be equal or more than the length of the implant?and do you prefere to do ridge splitting in maxilla or mandible?
tnx again, Dr Omid Moghaddas

Great lecture, about the 2 screws placed in the first case, they were removed in the second surgery? or the implant goes between them? regards Andres Paraud.

Thank you for the kind comments. To answer your questions:

1) About the screws used for GBR early in the presentation. That case simply demonstrates that there are multiple ways to solve the problems of a deficient ridge. The case could have been treated with a variety of techniques. Personally, I would not use a block of bone there as I have built my practice around non-autogenous grafting and I find that block allografts sometimes don't tend to fare as well in the posterior as the anterior.

2) When mobilizing the buccal plate, the height of the plate will be slightly apical to the height of the lingual plate. When you add the particulate bone, however, this usually allows you to regain the lost height (which is often very minimal).

when ridge split is done what can be done to get same bone height buccaly and lingualy , buccal height is lower than lingual. when add allograft, decorticalzation has to be done or not? GREAT LECTURE THANKS

Great Lecture!!! Well done!!

dr mohamad ali khayat - (7/8/2011 1:04 PM)

Thank you dr that great video and great explanation, but I want to explain to me why you placed 2 screw at the first case and put granules of the bone and not a block of bone

This video highlights the diagnosis and treatment of a Severe Type 3 Vertical deficiency in the Anterior Maxilla. The utilization of a new resorbable rigid Poly Lactic Acid (PLA) membrane and the technique of Sonic Weld is highlighted using clinical video and animation. The process of debridement of the site and then shaping and securing the rigid PLA pins and mesh are featured utilizing clinical video and animation. The additional use of BMP-2/ACS and Mineross in a 50-50 mixture is used a bone graft substitute. Tension Free closure, suturing and early healing are also displayed.

Current Concepts for the Preservation of the Post-Extraction Alveolar Ridge Premium Member Content

Current Concepts for the Preservation of the Post-Extraction Alveolar Ridge
After tooth extraction, bone resorption of varying amounts always occurs as the edentulous site of the alveolar process undergoes both qualitative and quantitative changes. Different techniques have been presented in literature in order to preserve the post-extraction site, including the use of barrier membranes, tri-dimensional matrix and bone fillers. An “open-healing” approach is nowadays commonly used, combining a proper management of soft tissues with biological integration of biomaterials. Once hard tissue has been successfully augmented, an adequate soft tissue thickness becomes mandatory in order to create healthy and stable peri-implant tissues. An innovative volume-stable collagen matrix provides the opportunity to treat soft tissue defects around implants as an alternative to connective tissue graft.

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.
