Horizontal and vertical ridge augmentation: a novel approach using osteosynthesis microplates, bone grafts, and resorbable barriers.

Abstract

A novel approach to augmenting alveolar ridges simultaneously with implant placement is presented. The technique is based on the use of custom-shaped osteosynthesis plates, which are fixed to the bone with miniscrews. The plates provide a rigid scaffolding for bone chips. Resorbable barriers are used to cover the plates and the grafts. The results of three selected cases are presented. This technique is relatively simple, can be used in almost any clinical situation, and can provide excellent results.
