Ridge Atrophy Treatment Concepts Utilizing Osseodensification for Sub crestal Sinus Augmentation and Ridge Expansion
Dental Implants had become an optimal solution for replacing missing teeth. Long term studies validate this treatment option in single as well as complete edentulous patients.
Bone resorption sometimes makes implant placement a difficult task both in anterior as well as posterior regions demanding advanced surgical regenerative procedures. In some situations, it requires long term treatment with an unpredictable prognosis.
The presentation will focus on the concept of using new innovative treatment approaches as well as unconventional surgical manipulations dealing with the atrophic ridge.
Osseodensification enables the clinician to preserve existing bone and enhance the outcome through a minimal invasive approach. Invasive procedures like lateral window sinus augmentation and GBR block procedures are replaced with a non-invasive osseodensification approach. This treatment modality will also enable the clinician to achieve higher primary implant stability providing the patient with an immediate load temporary solution.
Learning objectives for this lecture:
- Understand the concept of a new osteotomy preparation via osseodensification
- Evaluate the advantages of using osseodensification.
- Evaluate mini invasive approach to sub crestal sinus augmentation using osseodensification.
