Scientific Webinar | Flapless vertical alveolar crest-split and horizontal distraction | Prof. Angelo Troedhan | EAO Congress 2016 (Paris)Read Now
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."
