Controlled Ridge Splitting (CRS)

Description:
To demonstrate a new technique of controlled ridge splitting (CRS) in severely atrophied maxillary cases as an alternative to autogenous block graft. Twenty cases were completed using a controlled ridge splitting (CRS) technique with a total of 65 implants were placed in severely atrophied Maxillae and followed after the implants were loaded. Results: The CRS technique was used in very complex cases, where the alternative method will be autogenous block graft. A total of 65 tapered implants were placed. The implants diameter ranged between 3.25-5mm with a length ranged between 10-13mm. The implants were restored and were followed for 1-3 years. All implants achieved osseointegration and continue to have successful prostheses. Conclusion: The CRS is a predictable treatment option and could be a good alternative to autogenous block grafts is severely atrophic maxillae.

Fred; Opacious porcelain was used.

Yes hello I'm not sure if my question was posted so i will ask Dr.Boutros again What type of alloy & porcelain, was used in the recent article Zimmer Eztetic 3.1 to mask out the abutment,I would like to use this technique on similar cases. Thank you, best regards, fred

Beautiful cases. Thanks

Maurice; I try to split the flap when possible but most of the time it ends up a full thickness flap which as you indicated it might compromise blood supply? but we can still can get enough blood supply from the the the flap and bone. The minimum ridge that I was able to split base on a CT is 2.85mm which was shown in one of the cases.

Kevin; You can get the kit from Karl Schumacher here in the US or Zepf in Germany.

Robert, The reason why teeth were extracted was extensive decay and since the patient was involved in a car accident and due to extended hospital stay and due to insurance limitations, the teeth were extracted without any site development. If you like more detailed info about the case I will be more than happy to discuss it.

Indrajeet; Concerning the denture if we are having the patient use the same denture, I would relief any pressure and do a soft reline and if possible I would have the patient hold off on using the denture for at 1-2 weeks. you can get the kit from Karl Schumacher here in the US or Zepf in Germany and the best way is to google the info.

Yosef; You can get the wedges from Karl Schumacher and as far as I know they sell them separate.

Ronnie; Yes I place the allograft between the split ridge and the implants as well followed by the membrane.

Immediate Dentoalveolar Restoration Premium Member Content

Immediate Dentoalveolar Restoration
The IDR (Immediate Dentoalveolar Restoration) technique has been used for over 6 years. With it, we can reconstruct socket tissue losses in the same surgical session of dental extraction, implant placement and provisional crown installation, minimizing the treatment time and morbidity of the procedures. In this presentation we discuss the hard and soft tissues stability when the IDR technique is applied in different types of periodontal biotypes and in sites with different defect levels. The clinical, radiographic and tomographic follow-up of some cases is shown, allowing us to evaluate the maintenance of gingival architecture and peri-implant bone stability around the implants.

Positive & Negative Factors in Stem Cells & Wound Healing: Solutions for Long Term Stability
The main factor for soft and hard tissue healing is the speed and quality of new vascularization. This lecture will present all the positive and negative factors who control the angiogenesis, blood supply and bone metabolism: -Biological factors as vit. D and cholesterol have to be checked before the surgery -The management of the flaps with sutures is one the main factor for the bone and soft tissue maintenance.. -The soft brushing technique is a new technique which increases the flap without periosteal incision nor bleeding. -Careful Implant placement without too much torque, specially in cortical bone or grafted bone at the re-entry.. -The A-PRF liquid and i-PRF are solutions to reduce the mobility of the granules (sticky bone) with an improvement of angiogenesis The use of growth factors is a stimulation of angiogenesis. The prevention of the negative factors will allow us to achieve the long term stability.

“The Full Arch Patient”; A Fully Digital Affair Premium Member Content

“The Full Arch Patient”; A Fully Digital Affair
Guided Surgery (GS) is a concept where you are guided by the rehabilitation needs of your patient to perform the implant surgery procedure based on all the info that we process via planning software that are loaded with digital files coming from intra-oral scanning (IOS) and cone beam computed tomography (CBCT). After planning the case, we print a surgical guide or stent to perform the surgery, this technique allows us to do it flap or flapless in a complete secure environment, quicker and more precise if we compare to "freehand" surgery. However, we have to be careful because not all the systems are the same; those who use scoops as reductors are less precise than the "scoopless", no matter which system we use we have to be clear to understand that all the classic concepts of osseointegration are not erased by guided surgery, especially bone physiology.

Recombinant Human Platelet– Derived Growth Factor: A Systematic Review of Clinical Findings in Oral Regenerative Procedures
The use of recombinant human plateletderived growth factor–BB (rhPDGF) has received Food and Drug Administration approval for the treatment of periodontal and orthopedic bone defects and dermal wound healing. Many studies have investigated its regenerative potential in a variety of other oral clinical indications. The aim of this systematic review was to assess the efficacy, safety, and clinical benefit of recombinant human plateletderived growth factor (rhPDGF) use for alveolar bone and/or soft tissue regeneration. Based on the clinical evidence, rhPDGF is safe and provides clinical benefits when used in combination with bone allografts, xenograft, or β-TCP for the treatment of intrabony and furcation periodontal defects and gingival recession or when used with allografts or xenograft for GBR and ARP.

A Fixed Whole-Mouth Rehabilitation Utilizing Natural Abutments and Implants: Treatment Concepts and Clinical Realization
A 45-year-old female patient presented to the clinic with a request to treat her deteriorating dentition that had been reconstructed 15 years ago with fixed restorations. Clinical examination revealed fixed partial dentures cemented to natural abutments in the maxilla, whereas telescopic restorations were cemented to natural abutments bilaterally in the mandible. The treatment plan included a whole-mouth rehabilitation utilizing natural teeth and implants. As the patient declined any surgical augmentation…
