Andrew Dawood: Graftless management of the resorbed ridge
- Diagnostics & treatment planning
- Graftless solutions
- Minimally invasive surgery
- Short implants
- Zygomatic implants
- Loading protocols
The lecture gives insight in the use of short, narrow and zygomatic implants in cases with severe bone resorption and how using these technologies can avoid bone grafting and protracted treatment periods. Supported by impressive patient cases, Dr Dawood reviews a treatment solution with structural grafting including a LeFort 1 osteotomy and ridge expansion and a treatment time of over 18 months, and compares this treatment to minimal invasive, graftless alternatives using zygomatic, narrow and short implants, and immediate provisionalization and loading the day of implant placement. To protect important anatomical structures, impeccable quality CT diagnostics are a crucial and drill stops a very useful tool, when placing short implants . Less implants are better and easier to maintain for the patient.
