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.

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.

CBCT as an Interdisciplinary Diagnostic and Treatment Planning Tool
The era of in-office Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) has unequivocally transformed interdisciplinary dentofacial therapy (IDT). While in-office CBCT imaging may be the latest technological breakthrough enhancing opportunities for treatment planning, it is diagnosis that has remained the constant variable critical for predictable patient outcomes.

Novel Technique for Alveolar Bone Augmentation; Introducing The "Bio-Bone-Block" Concept
This presentation will discuss the use of autologous onlay block bone grafting for reconstruction of moderate to severe maxillary and mandibular alveolar ridge deficiencies. In particular, emphasis on the “Bio-Bone-Block” concept and re-entry to the original donor site for a second block harvest, if necessary. We will also covers the use of progenitor cells (bone marrow aspirating concentrated) along with PRP and PPP for accelerated healing.

Regenerative Procedures for Implant Site Optimization: Establishing the Perio-Implant Interface
Emerging concepts in implant dentistry have allowed bone preservation to become a reality, thus reducing the need for extensive augmentation procedures. Nevertheless, clinicians are still confronted with atrophic defects that require complex regenerative strategies for dental implant rehabilitation. This presentation will focus on some of the essential elements for a predictable regenerative protocol in implant site development. A discussion will include the use of defect topography as a guide in choosing a suitable augmentation technique. Several considerations that allow for tension free wound closure will be reviewed. Furthermore, an evidence based approach in graft material selection will be presented. Clinical cases will then be reviewed, to demonstrate how to integrate the presented principles into daily clinical practice.

Immediate Implants: Partial / Full Arch Rehabilitation & GBR - Part 2
By scientific studies produced in recent years has been confirmed, in selected cases, the validity of the post-extraction implants. The use of this method implies a lower emotional impact, a single surgery and a healing often better for the patient. We will be discussed traumatic extraction methods, perfect insertion of the implants with or without bone regeneration with bone substitutes and membranes and the opportunity to combine an advanced method as immediate implant with the execution of an immediate loading to restore aesthetics in more complex cases.

Reconstruction of Damaged Fresh Sockets by Connective-Bone Sliver Graft From the Maxillary Tuberosity, to Enable Immediate Dentoalveolar Restoration - A Clinical Case

Reconstruction of Damaged Fresh Sockets by Connective-Bone Sliver Graft From the Maxillary Tuberosity, to Enable Immediate Dentoalveolar Restoration - A Clinical Case
This paper describes a procedure for immediate loading of an implant following tooth extraction, in a socket presenting severe damage to the vestibular bone plate and gingival recession in the region of the upper central incisors. The procedures of extraction of the tooth, immediate insertion of the implant, connective- bone graft from the maxillary tuberosity and immediate restoration were shown to be a predictable treatment alternative. These procedures led to restoration of the tooth, bone and gingival structures in a single surgical stage and to maintenance of the favorable esthetic and functional result 24 months afterwards.
