Splitting and expansion of the alveolar ridge prior to implant placement, by asst. Prof. Dragana Gabric
Aim of Treatment
Ridge splitting and expansion is an effective and time-saving technique to develop sites in connection with implant placement. In order to prevent bone resorption the procedure should be as minimally invasive as possible. For this reason piezoelectric cutting with delicate inserts is the method of choice. Due to the minimal invasive design and controlled action of the device bone and soft tissue can be better preserved in comparison with conventional methods.
