Great video! If you were to do this procedure without a piezo what burs would you suggest using?

Very good brief & infomative

if you dont have a piezo could you do verical and crestal bone cuts with a handpiece? and what bur? thanks

Fabulous :)

dear sir,i have done a similar case where we created the green stick fracture using surgical disk and closed the site for revascularization, after a month the site was crestally opened and using a chisel like urs we tried to expand over the crestal green stick fracture the point was to expand and place the implant as the bone would expand over the fracture line, unfortunately we didnt acheive the result. i am not able to under stand why, although we managed to place the implant conventionally expansion but the desired result was not acheive.this is the article references.

Hossam & Paolo; Yes, the minimum thickness for ridge splitting is 2mm. Less than that and Block or GBR is best. As for vertical cut depth, yes approx. 2/3 of the length of the future implant. Yes, I have used the Meisenger kit and iut is very creative and user friendly.
regards to you both

Dear Dr Salam is there a minmum thickness at the crest of the ridge less than which we should shift to block graft? i have some cases which have extremely atrophic ridge that buccal and palatal cortex are fused from the crest of the ridge to 8 to 10 mm apically, can i still use splitting in such cases

Paolo Giuliani - (4/7/2010 5:26 PM)

Maurice, excellent work. I have the Meisenger bone spreading crest control kit. Same idea, although there is a pretty cool horizontal spreader that wedges the split crest without tapping. Am I correct to assume that your blateral vertical depth cuts are about 2/3 the final length of the implants you intend on using, in order to avoid a greenstick and lose implant fixation? Any difference on the mandible?
Thanks!

Maurice Salama - (12/14/2009 1:29 PM)

Simon; Thanks for the post. The vertical cuts allow for easier displacement of the segment of bone when splitting. Without these cuts you have a higher incidence of "green stick" fracture of the buccal transport segment and higher complication rate. Additionally, although you may still expand without these cuts, you can gain far greater ridge expansion with them. Regarding the bone graft, I placed and secured collagen membranes on both sides with tacks on the labial. I left some particles on the crest of the ridge without a membrane as I did not feel it to be necessary here. This can certainly be debated, and an additional occlusal collagen barrier membrane would not have been a wrong approach. It appeared to me that most of the graft was placed for buccal augmentation and I was not as concerned regarding the vertical augmentation. Welcome to the blog and please keep up the posts.

The Role of Occlusion in Implant Prosthetics
In this presentation Dr. Carlo Poggio delves into the biomechanics and clinical relevance of proper occlusal management in implant dentistry. Combining a thorough review of the literature with clinical dental applications, Dr. Poggio attempts to suggest a rational for designing the occlusion for implant restorations. Topics covered include comparison of occlusal management for teeth and implants. In addition, the importance of controlling the occlusal forces to protect the bone-implant interface from overload and the role of occlusion in peri-implant microbial infection.

Current Concepts for the Preservation of the Post-Extraction Alveolar Ridge Premium Member Content

Current Concepts for the Preservation of the Post-Extraction Alveolar Ridge
Different techniques have been presented in literature in order to preserve the post-extraction site; including the use of barrier membranes, tri-dimensional matrix and bone fillers. An “open-healing” approach is nowadays commonly used, combining a proper management of soft tissues with biological integration of biomaterials. Once hard tissue has been successfully augmented, an adequate soft tissue thickness becomes mandatory in order to create healthy and stable peri-implant tissues. An innovative volume-stable collagen matrix provides the opportunity to treat soft tissue defects around implants as an alternative to connective tissue graft.

Placing Dental Implants and/or Natural Tooth Restorations in the Esthetic Zone
A key goal of aesthetic/cosmetic dentistry is the fabrication of maintainable, aesthetic, and functional prostheses that preserve the health of the teeth and soft tissues. Advances in restorative dentistry have significantly improved the clinician’s ability to deliver predictable treatment. When implants are indicated, osseointegration is an added factor that is essential for success. It is universally accepted that implant dentistry is a restorative-driven treatment with a surgical component. Whether…

Failure of the natural dentition due to periodontal- or endodontic-related osseous infections may complicate implant therapy. Sequencing (ie, staging) of the surgical aspects of the treatment is essential to achieve the desired restorative objectives. Additionally, for indications in which the adjacent natural teeth require cosmetic enhancement as part of the overall treatment plan, proper sequencing will influence the definitive results. The following article discusses the surgical and restorative…
