Maxillary ridge expansion with Magnetic Mallet

30 Rating(s).


Posted on By Fernando Gómez-Ferrer In Orthodontics

This is a case of maxillary ridge expansion with the use of the Magnetic Mallet. After the skeletonization of the site to expand, the 17 was extracted using the EXTR1 osteotome. The vestibule-palatal bone thickness is 3 now mm. The osteotomy begins with the use of the SPLIT osteotome and subsequently the EXP2 osteotome starting from distal towards mesial. Then, a 4 mm thick vestibule-palatal bone thickness was achieved, following an implant site preparation with the use of osteotomes 100P and then 200. At this point, a 6 mm vestibule/palatal bone thickness is reached and parallelism pins are inserted. The Magnetic Mallet allowed to go from an initial vestibule-palatal bone thickness of 3 mm to an 8 mm bone thickness.
Any thoughts on this case?

Nice result...full thickness flap? Do you graft on outside of labial plate? What settings do you use? Do you drill to final size of Implant? Guided?
Thanks Dr. Salama
