After a loss of tooth or dental extraction, the dental process begins to disappear. The narrow alveolar process in a limitation for the fitting a dental implant. Often in in such cases a prior bone regeneration of the lost tissue is required.
In case of inadequate width of the alveolar process, but with adequate height, in order to place a dental implant correctly, the bone splitting technique needs to be applied.
Split lamina create space that allows for stable placement of the dental implant between them. A supplement to this method is the application of a bone substitute preparation in the fissure. What proves very helpful in this method is piezosurgery, which guarantees an atraumatic procedure.
