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

Description:
In this 2nd of a series, Dr. Dan Holtzclaw demonstrates the role of piezosurgical mediated ridge split technique in the reconstruction of ridge width deficiencies in order to facilitate more optimal placement of dental implants. A number of different variations exist regarding this technique. However, in this section, Dr. Holtzclaw discusses the role of piezoelectric hinge assisted ridge split (PHARS) technique in creating a hinged ridge split that is filled with particulate allograft and covered with a barrier membrane. Specific emphasis is placed on outlining the advantages and unique challenges of the PHARS technique.

Very nice presentation congratulations Dr Dan, I just want to know, what are you doing now when you need to gain height and what bone regeneration procedures in vertical case you do. Thanks

Harry, since the idea is to "split" (not just cut through) the buccal cortical plate from the palatal/lingual bone plate, we would require an intervening layer of cancellous bone. Therefore, the minimum thickness that can be "split" is likely to be about 3mm, i.e. 1mm buccal, 1mm cancellous and 1mm palatal. Also, Harry, why not post images of the CT in question on the Forum. I'm sure you will get a great deal of feedback. Good luck.

What is the minimum thickness of a ride to due a ridge split technique? Can I send you a cone beam of a case? Harry Albers

Very informative & straightforward.

Eviatar Buchman - (10/24/2011 5:32 PM)

Thank you very much for your presentation. In a case of braking the buccal wall how do you recomand to fix it. Is there any video about it. second question, what if the risk to damage the inferior nerve?

Great answer ! Thank you , Dr.Holtzclaw.

dan holtzclaw - (7/19/2011 5:03 PM)

Thank you for the kind comments.

To answer everyone's questions:

1) I generally will not place implants simultaneously in the mandible. The bone here is very dense, especially with a resorbed ridge. That is why I employ the apical hinge cut. This allows me to lateralize the buccal plate more extensively. With this being said, however, it also makes the area less stable for simultaneous implant placement. In the maxilla, I generally have no problem with placing implants with a ridge split (circumstances permitting)

2) I have only used PRF and have not used PRGF. They both have their supporters. It is very fun to watch Chokroun and Anitua square off against one another. I have seen great cases from both sides.

3) I have found that the ridge heals just fine with a full thickness flap. I understand the concept for a split thickness flap, but have not found it to be necessary.

alessandro zussino - (7/12/2011 2:23 PM)

Thank you Dr. Holtzclaw for your very interesting lecture and for the elegant surgery I've seen. When I approach this tecnique I try to insert implants at the same time of the ridge splitting in order to save time to my patient and myself, and also considering that implants can work maintaining the space of the splitted ridge, and moreover reducing the amount of graft needed; what's your opinion about that? Also: what do you think about the tecniques that suggest a split flap incision (like the ERE tecnique of Bruschi and Scipioni)?
Thank you so much.

Growth Factors; The Next Step in Achieving Ideal Regeneration
The aim of dentistry is to provide esthetics and function for our patients. Using hard and soft tissue regeneration techniques we have the ability to rebuild what has been lost to disease or trauma. Whether we are regenerating lost tissue around teeth or developing an ideal implant site, growth factors are a powerful asset that help make regenerative procedures more predictable while reducing patient morbidity. This webinar review regeneration techniques and will discuss the popular growth factors available today and demonstrate their clinical use.

Titanium Mesh and it's Role in Bone Augmentation; A Clinical Review
Different surgical procedures have been proposed in reconstruction of deficient alveolar ridges for placing dental implants in optimum prosthetic and esthetic position. One of the inconveniences of titanium mesh which has been reported is the exposure of it but on the other hand the benefit in comparison to non resorbable membranes is that there is no need for removal and the risk of infection is very low. In this lecture different cases will be presented and clinical points to be considered in using titanium mesh will be highlighted.

Tissue Engineering and Platelet Derived Growth Factors: Evidence Based Therapy
Platelet derived growth factors are now routinely utilized in reconstructive therapy. This presentation describes very detailed and evidence based guidelines for clinicians interested in enhancing their abilities in tissue engineering, especially as it relates to bone augmentation. Specifically, while successful bone augmentation requires the standard surgical parameters of space maintenance, low pressure on the grafts and tension-free flap closure, optimization of this goal requires management and enhancement of the local biological conditions with growth factors. Towards that end, platelet concentrates through the constant release of growth factors are able to promote and enhance new vascularization, provide plasma protein, normal lipidemia, as well as increased collagen and fibrin activity.

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”.

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.

Manejo Integral de Maloclusion Clase III en Adulto, con Requerimientos Periodontales y Protesicos; Reporte de un caso clinico
En nuestra clinica observamos un aumento de pacientes adultos con problemas esqueletales, compromiso periodontal y necesidades protesicas. Debemos recurrir a la interconsulta con el periodoncista, protesista y cirujano maxilofacial, para la correccion del caso, prestando especial atencion al componente dentario, esqueletal y los tejidos blandos faciales del paciente. La cirugia ortognatica, que generalmente la realizamos luego de una preparacion ortodoncica, permite corregir discrepancias en el adulto y restaurar la funcion y estetica en los tres planos del espacio. Realizada la correccion oclusal, procedemos a sustituir dientes ausentes, mediante implantes y protesis fijas. El Periodoncista, mantiene un control constante de la salud de los tejidos de soporte, durante todas las fases de la terapia multidisciplinaria.
