Split Crest technique - Dental Implants Net


The split crest technique is an operative procedure for insufficient bone width.

However, the bone width must remain at least 3 mm.

Procedures

  • 1.The alveolar bone is split from the alveolar crest (the upper end ridge for supporting the tooth)
  • 2.An implant is sandwiched within the split bone.
  • 3.New bone is regenerated within a period of 3 to 4 months to achieve integration with the implant.

An implant can be put in place at the same time as the lost bone and tissue are regenerated.
