Interpositional Bone Grafting Technique to Widen Narrow Maxillary Ridge
Lustmann, J. / Lewinstein, I.
A narrow edentulous alveolar ridge, less than 6 mm in the buccopalatal aspect, can prevent restoration by means of endosseous implants. A widening technique using alveolar ridge splitting and interpositional autogenous bone grafting is described. Accurate imaging of the alveolar bone shape and size was assessed with computerized tomography in a 1:1 scale. Following 6 months of healing, osseointegrated Brånemark implants were placed in the grafted sites.
