Ridge Split Technique using Vestibular Incision Approach

The treatment of patients with atrophic ridge is a common problem. The alveolar ridge split technique is one of various techniques introduced to expand alveolar ridges with a horizontal bone deficit. It’s a predictable and reliable procedure, and many variations of the ridge split technique have been described in the literature over the years. Case selection is vital for achieving success with ridge splitting. For additional information on ridge splitting, see: Alveolar ridge split technique for implant placement, and Alternative bone expansion technique for implant placement in atrophic edentulous maxilla and mandible, and a video: Ridge Splitting Cases in Narrow Alveolar ridge

    Beautiful work. What kind of suture do you use initially? Did you have to do a release of the tissue at the apical portion of the flap beyond the muco gingival junction.
    Do you think that you could do the splitting with just the piezo?
