  • PurposeThe aim of this prospective study was to compare the use of a hand mallet versus an electrical mallet in osteotome-assisted surgery for split-crest procedures.MethodsPartially edentulous patients, with an alveolar ridge width inferior to the optimally desirable implant diameter, were selected for this study. Forty-six split-crest procedures were performed in 46 patients. They were randomly divided in two groups: in the control group, 23 patients, the split crest was performed with… CONTINUE READING
