A new implant system to solve the problem of narrow crestal bone treatment. Clinical and surgical rational
The reduction in thickness of the alveolar ridges is a frequent problem in implantology that can be overcome through bone regeneration (GBR). This communication presents a new implant system in form and method that with a minimally invasive approach constitutes an alternative to bone regeneration. The piezoelectric osteotomy, validated in the literature, allows the insertion of shapes other than cylindrical ones, solving some volume criticality and reducing the need for more complex regenerative therapies. The wedge shape and the piezoelectric insertion of the implant represent the novelty to be communicated.
