Localised maxillary ridge expansion with simultaneous implant placement: a case series.

Abstract

The placement of implants in edentulous areas is often compromised by a thin alveolar crest, which widens the space between the two cortical bones; this offers advantages from aesthetic, biomechanical, and functional points of view. We present our results using the osteotome technique for the creation of a site for an implant, followed by immediate… (More)
