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.

The Use of SonicWeld® Ultrasonically Fabricated Barriers for Enhanced Outcomes in Guided Bone Regeneration
KLS Martin has developed a unique bioresorbable guided bone regeneration barrier which can be molded into any desired three-dimensional form. Using a combination of thermoplastic and ultrasonic energies, these barriers have been successfully used to create the proper environment for both large lateral and vertical ridge augmentations for situations previously only treated with block grafting or distraction. This course will outline the basic science, clinical techniques and outcomes of the SonicWeld technique.

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.

Physical And Chemical Properties Of Commercially Available Mineralized Bone Allograft

Physical And Chemical Properties Of Commercially Available Mineralized Bone Allograft
Bone graft materials are critical to the success of dental implants when there is a need to increase the volume of bone in a defect. The surface properties of these graft materials will have a profound impact on the outcome of the graft procedure. The clinician has many choices of bone graft substitutes when augmenting bony deficits. Allograft bone is the most widely used class of bone graft substitutes. Within this class there are a number of different bone allografts, which are manufactured utilizing widely varying processing techniques. There also appears to be a wide range of results in the published literature across the spectrum of different bone allografts. This in-vitro study evaluated chemical and surface properties of five different commercially available mineralized bone allografts.
