Osseodensification in maxillary extraction sites?
Before the introduction of Ossiodensification procedure, I used to apply one of two options in inserting implants in extraction sockets:
1- Socket grafting , membrane and post- pond implant insertion
2- Choose suitable socket, clean it and insert the implant in this extracted socket, with a possibility of using an angled abutment in that location.
Ossiodensification allows us to use the inter-radicular bone, expand it for implant insertion , this provides a central implant, in intact bone with no previous pathology .
Which is usually in good alignment. I have used this technique in favorable occasions and I found it very satisfactory
Thoughts and comments are welcomed.
