When the buccal bone fractures, but stays in place as it appears in this video, it always heals ? With the addition of autgenous bone and fibrin and collagen membrane, there is much support. Some Drs. do not use the fibrin ?

Sam Busich - (11/25/2009 12:42 PM)

I agree with Henry. As for one of the other comments about ridge splitting vs. expansion, take a look at Dr. Ady Palti's lectures on XP. It was very well done but I don't believe you can easily split a 1mm ridge very effectively as a previous post suggested even if you were Hilt Tatum, also an Xpert on this site.

henry salama - (11/23/2009 11:00 AM)

answering Dr. Sam Jain,

No question that often ridge expansion/splitting alone forces implant positioning toward a more palatal orientation because most narrow/deficient ridges are buccally deficient to start with. I believe that the one significant advantage of ridge expansion/splitting is the ability to place the implant with only one surgical intervention thereby improving time and patient management in non-esthetically demanding sites. The one disadvantage is a more palatal implant placement which I overcome by placing the implant a little deeper allowing a longer and more gradual emergence profile without a ridgelap facially. If, however, ideal implant placement is necessary for achieving predictable esthetic endpoints then I prefer a staged approach where I first augment the ridge buccally and return some months later for more ideal implant positioning.
I hope that helps.

Dr. Hilt Tatum can expand a ridge that is 1.0mm wide using osteotomes. He is able to direct the direction of the expansion. See him in Puerto Rico at his course.

Dr Salama and Dr Anitua:
I use the ridge expansion tech a lot and build the facial with autogenous bone particles and collagen membrane and the implants come out ok ...BUT... the implant position is always compromised ie to the lingual and off angle and the crown restoration with facial cantilever.

Most informative. Thanks. The BTI implant seems to be an aggressive cutting implants ideal for this technique. How would this design compare with the traditional design of a tapered screw-vent implant such as Zimmer’s and are the apex diameters smaller in comparison with similar size platform Zimmer implants

henry salama - (11/21/2009 1:36 AM)

George;
Yes. Although the expansion drills in this video are made by BTI, they can be utilized with any implant system. I also utilize these drills when performing ridge splitting techniques. Thanks for the post.
regards
Dr. Salama

Can this technique be done with any other type of implants?

Titanium Mesh and it's Role in Bone Augmentation; A Clinical Review
Different surgical procedures have been proposed in reconstruction of deficient alveolar ridges for placing dental implants in optimum prosthetic and esthetic position. One of the inconveniences of titanium mesh which has been reported is the exposure of it but on the other hand the benefit in comparison to non resorbable membranes is that there is no need for removal and the risk of infection is very low. In this lecture different cases will be presented and clinical points to be considered in using titanium mesh will be highlighted.

Modern Flap Management in Bone Augmentation Premium Member Content

Modern Flap Management in Bone Augmentation
What does it mean “Modern”? Less traumatic? More predictable? More biology? Less incisions? Let’s see what modern means from a biological and from a surgical standpoint. How can we achieve a full passive closure from the flaps without damaging the blood supply? Can we take care of the oxidative stress? Can PRF help us in these matters? Surgically, the management of anatomical elements such as the mylo-hyoid muscle and the mental foramen will be discussed and a simplification protocol will also be presented. No doubt, “modern” flap management raises a lot of questions!

Regenerative Procedures for Implant Site Optimization: Establishing the Perio-Implant Interface Premium Member Content

Regenerative Procedures for Implant Site Optimization: Establishing the Perio-Implant Interface
Emerging concepts in implant dentistry have allowed bone preservation to become a reality, thus reducing the need for extensive augmentation procedures. Nevertheless, clinicians are still confronted with atrophic defects that require complex regenerative strategies for dental implant rehabilitation. This presentation will focus on some of the essential elements for a predictable regenerative protocol in implant site development. A discussion will include the use of defect topography as a guide in choosing a suitable augmentation technique. Several considerations that allow for tension free wound closure will be reviewed. Furthermore, an evidence based approach in graft material selection will be presented. Clinical cases will then be reviewed, to demonstrate how to integrate the presented principles into daily clinical practice.

Fibrinogen-Induced Regeneration Sealing Technique (F.I.R.S.T.). An Improvement and Modification of Traditional GBR: A Report of Two Cases
Guided bone regeneration is a technique widely known, clinicians know very well indications and limitations of this technique. One of the principles to achieve bone augmentation and formation resides in the stability of the blood clot forming under a barrier membrane. The technique proposed in this article has the goal of providing stabilization to the bone graft by adding fibrin sealant (FS) to the bone graft and also using the fibrin sealant to attach a bone membrane (cortical lamina) to the recipient site. This simple modification of the technique of guided bone regeneration is presented in two successful cases.

Alloplastic Bone Substitutes Around Dental Implants
The repair of osseous defects has been a goal in dentistry for many decades. Subsequently, within the last several years, there has been an emergence of a new class of materials in dentistry referred to as synthetic bone. Finding the ideal bone substitute material has been the goal of researchers for many years.
