Abstract

Aim: To assess the success rate of implants placed in narrow ridges after ridge expansion. Materials and Methods: This study includes the placement of 20 implants, endosseous10 implants were surgically placed in well-formed ridge without expansion and 10 implants were placed in narrow-ridge with bone expansion in two-stage endosseous implant treatment of partially edentulous patients where ridge was deficient in horizontal bone volume. Pre-operative and Post-operative evaluations were done clinically and radiographically. Results: The implants placed in well-formed ridges shown the less crestal bone loss when comparing to the implants placed in deficient ridges. Conclusion: Although the treating the atropic ridges with the motorized expansion technique is an alternative to the ridge augmentation procedures and other expansion procedures, a thorough knowledge of a clinician and the proper case selection is required for the desired functional, biological and esthetic outcomes.
