Ridge Split for ortho
This case was from an Orthodontist 2 years Ago. I did a ridge augmentation to #5,and #12.
To close the spaces #5,12 he is asking for me to drill a hole to simulate an extraction socket and is concerned with bone width.
I have attached Photos and CT scan imagines. #5 appears to be wide. #12 perhaps not as much with 4 mm at crest.
Is drilling a hole an recommended? if so how wide?
How about ridge splitting to make them wider?
She possibly could do dental implants but I have not discussed that.
