Professor Angelo TROEDHAN's lecture during EAO Congress 2016:
"Based on the mechanical behavior of woven bone, Piezotome osteotomy tools have been developed for vertical alveolar crest splitting and horizontal alveolar ridge expansion. Utilizing Piezotome for flapless crest splitting and widening techniques, the indication for this surgery can be applied to alveolar ridges with widths of only 1mm due to the bone preserving benefits provided. A prospective clinical multicenter-study resulted in an overall implant-loss rate of less than 2 % and vertical bone loss of mean 1mm within the first two years after surgery."
Orthodontic Bone Stretching for ankylosed teeth or implant relocation | Dr Philippe BOUSQUET | ParisRead Now
Orthodontic Bone Stretching (OBS) allows conservation of infraclused ankylosed teeth or severely malpositioned implants on the arch, and can be an alternative to tooth extraction or implant removal associated with bone regeneration.
The technique uses partial corticotomies, associated with orthodontic forces. This procedure leads to bone movement by the stretching effect. The orthodontic device induces and directs the movement until proper position is achieved.
