Immediate Implant Placement With Ridge Split in A Sieberts Class 1 Defect - A Case Report

Arjun. M. R | Nandini Manjunath

Abstract: Thin ridges often pose hindrance in oral implant placement. Inadequate width of ridge requires Innovative techniques in placing implants. One of such techniques is ridge splitting technique, Which helps expansion of the ridge with or without fracture of cortical plates. This technique has the advantage of immediate implant loading, in comparison with other ridge widening techniques. This article deals with a case study using the ridge splitting technique. This case report describes the ridge expansion, followed by placement of a dental implant in the left maxillary central area. Ridge expansion was done in relation to # 21and osteotomy was prepared to the required depth. After proper treatment planning endo osseous implant measuring 3.5mm in diameter and 11mm in length was placed. Final crown cementation was done with zirconia crown, 3months after the insertion of implant. The ridge split operating technique and the immediate insertion of the implant resulted in the minimal resorption of the alveolar bone along with max expansion. The patient exhibited no clinical or radiographic complications through 12 months of clinical monitoring after loading. The immediate implant with ridge splitting provided the patient with less number of dental visits and good aesthetics. The sequential surgical, technical, and restorative techniques were blended into one successful protocol, which was demonstrated with this clinical case report.
