I have read about splitting the ridge to increase bone volume at the recipient site instead of doing a block graft on the buccal of the cortical bone.
We have good evidence that Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and Bone Morphogenic Proteins (BMP) can significantly enhance osteogenesis. Should these become standard of care?
I have had to remake several short-span implant fixed partial dentures because the porcelain fractured and my attempts to repair did not hold.

The inferior alveolar nerve space is quite unusual in that it is over 10mm in height and over 4mm in width.
Recently we extracted a lower left second premolar [#20] which had a huge periapical odontogenic cyst.
I am just wondering if placing a V-ring against the implant crown will pose any danger to the implant because of the pressure the springing action will exert on the implant.
