Very well done presentation. So many pearls on the technique. Thank you so much.

Good points of comparison between GBR and ridge split . Great presentation . Thank you

Thank you Dr Moghaddaa. In those cases of 4mm and less - If the position of the crest is in a favorable prosthetic position then I prefer to split. If the bone is more ligualized than I elect to augment. Using proper cuts with piezo along with bone expanders we can prevent labial fractures. Often just a horizontal cut can be enough. Omitting inferior cuts as well. Secondly we must use a narrower implant as to not over expand the plates. Therefore platform switch implant that can handle molar forces is pre requisite. Thank for your question. Hope to see you in NY for symposium. -isaac

Isaac , congrats, very well documented . my question: in cases with ridge width less than 4mm, by considering the possible risks like fracture of the buccal plate,do you prefer to go for ridge splitting or you prefer to do the GBR ? all the bests Dr Moghaddas

Dr Salama - my humble thanks for your comments and questions. They are some of the more common and important questions regarding this technique. Minimum crestal ridge thickness would be 3mm. 1 mm cancellous 1 mm cortical on each side. There can be incredible regenerative potential when splitting and grafting as long as we don't pack our graft too tightly between the 2 cortical segments. I've found that the access to the medullary blood supply is even greater than when we decorticate during ridge augmentation procedures. Keeping the periosteum intact works wonderfully as long as we have enough bone remaining on both sides of our implants. If there is 6mm of crestal bone we can simply split without a full thickness flap as you mentioned quite predictably. With less thickness often cortical vertical releases are necessary and reinforcing those cuts with mineralized grafting material enhances our alveolar outcome. We've seen many cases with bone loss when too much stress on the crestal ridge is employed. Using a narrow implant design is paramount to avoid stress so a platform switching implant is important to provide an appropriate occlusal restorative table for our molars. In addition the increasing development of piezo devices has reduced necrosis in these cases. Regards -isaac

There are so many different versions of ridge splitting/expansion. I like your technique and excellent documentation. A few questions for you; 1. What is your "minimum" ridge thickness that you would consider splitting the ridge? 2. Many maintain the periosteum on the buccal segment, do you feel it is important? 3. Many have reported some crestal bone loss with this approach after healing and loading? Have you seen a similar result? thanks Dr. Salama

Ronni - zirconia abutments must have ti base as well. Full zirconia abutments are subject to fracture. The key is that the ti base must be tall enough. Often labs will shorten them thus loosing surface area for zirconia to bond with. Ti base should be treated with monobond or z-prime and a good cement like multi link hybrid should be employed. Of course this is all done at the lab level. There is nothing wrong with screw retained emax either although zirconia does handle stronger compressive forces. I've had only 2 come off on several hundred implants over the last 4 years and a simple recementation was done in office. Happy implanting.

Ronni Deniger - (3/26/2015 8:50 PM)

I have been using zirconia abutments for a little while and in the posterior I recently had two implant crowns become loose and the problem was the Zirconia internal hex broke away from the abutment so in the posterior crowns I went back to screw retained emax with titanium base.

Excelent work, congratulations!

Vertical Bone Augmentation Using a Tunnel Approach Step by Step - Part 2 of 2
Bone atrophies are one of the most challenging situations in modern implantology. Several techniques have been proposed to be able to place implants in those atrophic situations. This first presentation will show step by step the Split Bone block technique as described by Dr. Khoury to perform horizontal bone augmentation procedures. Bone biology is also explain in order to understand why this technique offer us some great advantages. The second presentation will focus of vertical bone augmentation procedures using this same technique but through a tunnel approach. The advantages of this approach will also be described in this presentation.

Minimally Invasive Approaches for Managing Deficient Sites in Esthetic Implant Dentistry Premium Member Content

Minimally Invasive Approaches for Managing Deficient Sites in Esthetic Implant Dentistry
When considering esthetic dental implant therapy, preservation or further enhancement of the available tissue support may provide an improved esthetic outcome with less associated morbidity and treatment duration. Nevertheless, reconstruction of compromised sites due to lost hard and soft tissue volume is often inevitable in the anterior zone. Substantial ridge deficiencies demand more complex grafting procedures with an increased level of invasiveness and subsequent tissue alterations.

A GRAFT-LESS Approach to Implant Dentistry
Vertical bone augmentation techniques are more invasive and success rates often vary according to the surgical expertise of the clinician. There has been a trend over time towards minimally invasive treatment options in implant dentistry. This approach attempts to avoid more complicated procedures involving bone augmentation for implant placement. This presentation discusses a “graft less” treatment philosophy that emphasizes the use of less demanding augmentation techniques for the purpose of placing short implants in atrophic posterior sites.

Bone Reconstruction: A New Algorithm for the Implantologist
Bone augmentation is often required to place an adequate number of dental implants in ideal positions for prosthetic support. In addition to biomechanical demands bone augmentation can also provide proper ridge contour for improved esthetic outcomes. Disadvantages of bone augmentation techniques include increase morbidity, surgical time, costs and treatment length. As such a trend has develop towards treatment approaches that avoid bone grafting including shorter and narrower implants, angled implants and/or fewer implants for prosthetic support. This presentation will look at various bone augmentation techniques, methods to minimize the morbidity of bone grafting and guide clinicians on implant rehabilitation with grafting versus non-grafting approaches.

Esthetic Zone Reconstruction: Synergy of Hard and Soft Tissue Grafting Premium Member Content

Esthetic Zone Reconstruction: Synergy of Hard and Soft Tissue Grafting
The loss of alveolar ridge contour in the esthetic zone compromises both esthetics and function. This clinical presentation will focus on the application of both hard and soft tissue grafting in the esthetic zone implementing state of the art interactive CT diagnosis and treatment planning for optimal esthetic implant reconstruction. Emphasis will be on indications, graft and harvest site assessment, timing, and use of bioactive modifiers including BMP, PRGF and PDGF. The surgical protocol utilizing allogeneic and autogenous grafts in conjunction with connective tissue grafts, acellular dermis matrix, and related soft tissue procedures to avoid functional and esthetic pitfalls will be featured. Pre and post-grafting prosthetic workup, interactive CT graft assessment and perio prosthetic driven implant planning, stent driven implant placement, and computer milled abutment fabrication including guided surgery will be included.

Manejo Integral de Maloclusion Clase III en Adulto, con Requerimientos Periodontales y Protesicos; Reporte de un caso clinico
En nuestra clinica observamos un aumento de pacientes adultos con problemas esqueletales, compromiso periodontal y necesidades protesicas. Debemos recurrir a la interconsulta con el periodoncista, protesista y cirujano maxilofacial, para la correccion del caso, prestando especial atencion al componente dentario, esqueletal y los tejidos blandos faciales del paciente. La cirugia ortognatica, que generalmente la realizamos luego de una preparacion ortodoncica, permite corregir discrepancias en el adulto y restaurar la funcion y estetica en los tres planos del espacio. Realizada la correccion oclusal, procedemos a sustituir dientes ausentes, mediante implantes y protesis fijas. El Periodoncista, mantiene un control constante de la salud de los tejidos de soporte, durante todas las fases de la terapia multidisciplinaria.
