Interpositional Bone Grafting Technique to Widen Narrow Maxillary Ridge

J. Lustmann, DMD/I. Lewinstein, DMD, PhD

PMID: 7591001

A narrow edentulous alveolar ridge, less than 6 mm in the buccopalatal aspect, can prevent restoration by means of endosseous implants. A widening technique using alveolar ridge splitting and interpositional autogenous bone grafting is described. Accurate imaging of the alveolar bone shape and size was assessed with computerized tomography in a 1:1 scale. Following 6 months of healing, osseointegrated Brånemark implants were placed in the grafted sites. (INT J ORAL MAXILLOFAC IMPLANTS 1995;10:568–577)

Key words: alveolar ridge widening technique, computerized tomography, interpositional bone grafting, osseointegrated dental implants
