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 informative & straightforward.

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.

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.

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.

Thank you - some excellent results with this technique, particularly the amount of bone regenerated. What are your thoughts on using motorised bone expanders for separating the cortical plates and the use of transitional expander implants during the healing phase? Also, have you tried this technique using PRGF? Many thanks

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.
