Vertical and Horizontal Bone Augmentation with Khoury Bone Plates

Last Updated September 28, 2017
Reviewed By:  OsseoNews Team

The most difficult of bone grafting techniques are the vertical and horizontal techniques. This video shows a way to utilize thin autogenous bone plates to create stunning bone. This is not the easiest technique but it is definitely the fastest way to grow bone and is quite predictable in the right clinician’s hands.

> Khoury’s split bone block technique harvests an autograft from the buccal shelf. The bone block(s) fixed to the alveolar ridge recreate the bony envelope within which bone particulate may be packed to reconstruct the site. An implant may even be placed simultaneous to the augmentation should it be placed in the correct prosthodontically planned position and with enough residual bone to gain acceptable primary stability. An aesthetically pleasing reconstruction can be achieved should the implant osseointegrate, the bone augmentation heal to restore the ridge architecture, and possibly the soft tissue also augmented to bulk the gingival marginal seal around the restoration. 1,2,3,4
