The Ridge Split Technique in the Edentulous Maxilla: Technique and Management of Complications

Description:
Management of the narrow ridge following resorption often poses a significant challenge. Many bone augmentation techniques have been proposed to prepare these deficient sites for future implant placement utilizing GBR, Onlay Bone Grafts, Block Grafts and even Ti-Mesh. In this case report, Ridge Splitting and Expansion is proposed as a potentially less invasive and biologically sound technique which allows for more bone walls to encase the defect and allow for inlay grafting techniques or even simultaneous implant placement. This video presentation will highlight the use of this technique in the challenging edentulous maxilla. The technique, methods, flap designs and expansion tools will be highlighted as well as the management of a common mid-surgical complication. Follow up healing and case development will also be displayed as a comparison.

Thanks for the positive feedback gentlemen

Another great presentation Dr. Thank you. Technique was well presented with clarity.

Excellent presentation took a big implant program in NJDA and everything you say is what I learned

Dr.Gluckman, it was indeed an awesome presentation. This gave me immense confidence in me for my future cases. many thanks

Fantastic lecture from a master. Too bad he lives in beautiful Capetown or I would be taking his classes. easy to follow, how-to class. Howard needs to become a lecture tutor to many of the other speakers who drone on and on.....

Peter Feher - (6/6/2015 1:04 PM)

Congratulations! I do always vertical cuts on the bone. It makes possible an easier splitting and I think it is good avoiding the fracture of the thin buccal bone. If I can I always leave the soft tissue on the bone (book flap). Regards Peter

Thank you Jorge. Much appreciated

Jorge Campos - (4/17/2015 3:05 PM)

Howard, congratulations. As usual a well exemplificated video. A Master class. 100% recomendable to any who has to do this procedure. All the details that make this a successfull surgery are commented. Thanks Jorge

Current Concepts in Bioactivity and Regeneration
An injury to the tissue instantly stimulates the healing process. To heal properly, we need three elements: scaffolds, cells and growth factors. If one of these three elements are missing there will be no tissue regeneration. Plasma rich in growth factors (Endoret® (PRGF®) technology, enables clinicians to apply autologous growth factors and a fibrin scaffold in a simple, safe and effective method. The Endoret® (PRGF®) stimulates the tissue-building cells to achieve regeneration. An optimal alveolar regeneration is characterized by fast haemostasis, adequate inflammation, stem cell mobilization and differentiation, rapid soft tissue closure of the socket and correct tissue regeneration. The adequate management of the extraction socket will determine the final outcome of implant-supported restorations.

Emphasis will be placed on the benefits of the augmentation technique on revascularization: the use of autologous bone grafts on a scaffold of xenograft material saturated in PRP (Platelets Rich Plasma), covered with PPP (Platelets Poor Plasma). Soft tissue manipulation with role-up technique is demonstrated prior to implants placement.
Six months after implants placement, the second phase of uncovering is shown.

Bone Augmentation & Vascular Enhancement Concepts: It’s Time to Make it Simple!
Growing bone is fascinating, and clinicians have developed many techniques in that matter, most of them restricted to an elite. Yes, it does take a lot of skills to harvest bone blocks, to stabilize them with screws etc, and without forgetting the soft tissue handling as it can be a real challenge to cover the bone graft especially for a vertical augmentation. The purpose of this presentation is to make the participant think biology first and not mechanic first. A biological thinking will dramatically simplify vertical and/or horizontal bone augmentation procedures. We will also be introducing a new approach for the simplification of soft tissue handling: the Soft Brushing Technique, that will allow the coronal advancement of both buccal and lingual flaps, but also the palatal flap without the need for periosteal releasing incisions.

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.

Recombinant Human Platelet– Derived Growth Factor: A Systematic Review of Clinical Findings in Oral Regenerative Procedures

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.

Retrospective Evaluation of Crestal Bone Changes Around Implants With Reduced Abutment Diameter Placed Non-Submerged and at Subcrestal Positions: The Effect of Bone Grafting at Implant Placement

Retrospective Evaluation of Crestal Bone Changes Around Implants With Reduced Abutment Diameter Placed Non-Submerged and at Subcrestal Positions: The Effect of Bone Grafting at Implant Placement
One method to measure the success of dental implant treatment is to evaluate marginal peri-implant bone-level changes and stability over time. The location of the fixture–abutment interface (FAI) can be of major importance when the goal is to construct esthetic restorations. In these situations the FAI is often placed in a more apical position to create an ideal emergence profile for the prosthetic construction. However, several animal studies have reported that placement of the FAI in a subcrestal position may result in peri-implant marginal bone loss. The aim of the present study is to evaluate the effect of bone grafting of the defect between the bone crest and the coronal aspect of the implant for implants with reduced abutment diameters placed non-submerged and in subcrestal positions.
