Video Overview

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.
