Ridge Split with Mallet or Versah?

65 Rating(s).


Posted on By Ben Lashley In Implants

This is one of those rare cases that may not need Siunus augmentation. The bone is thick enough to contain an implant but is marginal. You could augment it facially during implant placement, you could ridge split it with the magnetic mallet or osteotomes or simply utilized the Versa kit to densify and expand. I would love some input on this case!

It's a challenging case with many aspect to evaluate, both Versah or Magnetic Mallet are good options. The Versah need to have trabecular bone to work at their best, magnetic Mallet is more conservative for the reason you don't use drills or irrigation. One more option could be split with partial thickness flap and additional CTG. I personally use both of the systems, often together and manual expanders also. Good luck!

Because of the defect that is nearly a three wall defect, I am considering simply placing the implant and then placing bone over the facial with collagen membrane. I dont have a clinical photo to share but I am considering opening the flap to posterior of the molar and no release to the mesial. That is three roads to Rome or combination there of. Thank you for the input!
