Vertical and Horizontal Bone Augmentation; Treatment of Severely Resorbed Ridges for Successful Implant Therapy
Dental implant surgery is very predictable treatment. However, it is very common to encounter severely resorbed ridges, which makes dental implant treatment difficult. In this presentation, Dr. Lee will present many innovative options to overcome pneumatized sinus, thin ridges, and loss of vertical bone heights.
Diagnosis and guidelines for these treatment will be reviewed concisely.
- Diagnosis and treatment planning for Implant Treatment will be discussed.
- New sinus classification developed by Dr. Lee, which simplifies the treatment of pneumatized sinus will be discussed.
- Simplified GBR technique will be discussed
- New autogenous bone harvesting technique will be introduced.
- Easier mandibular ridge splitting technique will be introduced
- Biological modifiers will be discussed.
- Non-traumatic Nerve Lateralization Technique will be introduced
- Cases involving multidiscipline specialties will be presented.
