Use of ultrasound-activated resorbable poly-D-L-lactide pins (SonicPins) and foil panels (Resorb-X) for horizontal bone augmentation of the maxillary and mandibular alveolar ridges.

Abstract

Horizontal bone augmentation of the maxillary and mandibular alveolar ridges has been conventionally performed using mini titanium alloy screws. The titanium alloy screws are used to fixate corticocancellous block grafts to the recipient site or for tenting the mucoperiosteum to retain particulate bone grafts. Nonresorbable guided tissue regenerative… (More)
