Ridge Expansion

Bone Ridge Expansion (Ridge Splitting)

bone-ridge-expansionSome bone is very flexible and can be manipulated with fine instruments to expand the volume (see picture on left). For those sites that are thin, the implant surgeon may perform a bone expansion procedure which uses a temporary dental implant to hold the “expanded”  bone site. This is a very clever procedure that can offer superior bone to sites which are more simply grafted with bone particles. This is because the natural bony housing of the jaw bone is enlarged. Ridge expansion can be combined with particulate bone grafting to restore lost volume of jaw bone.
