Scientific Literature



In the severely resorbed posterior mandible, the placement of dental implants in ideal position is often compromised by the significant post-extraction centrifuge alveolar bone resorption. The shape of the residual alveolar ridges and the residual bone height above the inferior alveolar nerve often make the area not suitable for direct implantation. Even if the use of short implants offers excellent results when the residual bone volumes are high and wide enough to receive these implants [1], there is no other solution than bone regeneration surgery prior to implant placement when the alveolar ridges are very thin [2]. However bone regeneration itself remains a challenge in this area, as the mandibular posterior residual alveolar ridges are always very cortical with a low vascularization and therefore not really adapted to the integration of bone grafting material or regeneration of bone cavities. Finally, the posterior mandible is a place of significant mechanical constraints applied on the bone and gingival tissues during the mastication function, and this can compromise the healing of a bone regeneration chamber, particularly through the risk of soft tissue dehiscence after the regeneration surgery.
