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

Flapless Postextraction Socket Implant Placement in the Esthetic Zone: Part 1. The Effect of Bone Grafting and/or Provisional Restoration on Facial-Palatal Ridge Dimensional Change
The dental literature has reportted vertical soft tissue changes that can occur with immediate implant placement, bone grafting, and provisional restoration ranging from a gain or loss of 1.0mm. However, little is known of the effects of facial-palatal collapse of the ridge due to these clinical procedures. Based upon treatment modalities rendered, an ensuing contour change can occur with significant negative esthetic consequences. The results of a retrospective clinical cohort study evaluating the change in horizontal ridge dimension associated with implant placement in anterior postextraction sockets are presented for four treatment groups. Therefore, it is recommended to place a bone graft and contoured healing abutment or provisional restoration at the time of flapless postextraction socket implant placement.

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.
