Ridge Splitting Procedures

Say Goodbye to Dental Problems and Hello to a Healthy Smile with Us

Ridge Splitting Procedures

A major limitation to put dental implants successfully and easily is inadequate bone. Lack of bone for dental implants (No bone for dental implants) can be length wise or widthwise. There are situations where patients require implant in which there is sufficient bone length but there wont be sufficient width. If there is a problem with bone height, we can do bone augmentation or sinus lift for upper jaw or block graft for lower jaw. But what about the insufficient width That is where the ridge split option exist.

Ridge split technique:

It is also called as alveolar split technique which is used for horizontal augmentation of bone. (To develop bony width)Ridge widening or augmentation is achieved by splitting the crest of atrophic and edentulous bony ridges. When ridges are narrow at about less than 4mm in width, they might require horizontal augmentation to place dental implants. A lateral ridge split technique usually resolves the problem of narrow ridges allowing simultaneous placements of dental implants.

The ridge split procedures are either a one stage procedure where implant is placed simultaneously or as 2 stage procedure in which first ridge split and bone augmentation and later date implant placement done.

Dr.Sudhakar Reddy performs the ridge split procedure for dental implants to widen the narrow ridges and achieve adequate height for implant insertion.

 The simultaneous placement of the implants reduces healing times.

 The survival rate of these implants is more than 98% with autogenous bone or biomaterials used for grafting.

 Acceptance rates of patients are extremely high with this technique.

 It is a minimally invasive technique with high advantages 

 The technique is low risk causing minimal inferior alveolar nerve injuries

Surgical procedure

 Local anaesthesia is administered

 The full thickness of the muco-periosteal and the flap is reflected

 The crest is prepared with a surgical fissure bur

 A 8 mm Obwegeserosteome is applied to expand and split the ridge

 A paralleling device is inserted after adequate width is obtained

 The prepared site is inserted with implants that have similar diameter since unequal diameters may lead to loosening of small fixture

 Biomaterial is filled in between the cortical plates

 The cover screw is tightened & Soft tissue closure is achieved

Usually a normal tooth has two parts.

1. Crown portion is the part above the gums

2. Root which is like a pillar inside the bone that holds the crown portion

When a person looses a tooth, both portions are lost. To replace that lost tooth, first we re-insert artificial root portion that is nothing but a dental implant which is a titanium screw. After root we inserted, tooth portion will be made on top of it (Fake tooth)

So, basically, “A Dental implant (Artificial tooth root) is a small titanium screw inserted into the jaw bone which acts as a natural tooth root. They provide a strong foundation for fixed permanent tooth on top of it or support a fixed teeth bridge or prosthesis”.

It has 3 portions:

1.Implant screw – titanium screw drilled into the jaw

2.Abutment – it connects the implant to cap (artificial tooth)

3.Cap – artificial tooth portion

Implant designSingle piece implants (Mostly)Two piece implants joined by a small screw.
Additional componentsNo additional componentsRequire other components like abutment, implant analog,impression post, Healing cap, cover screw , multi unit components etc…
Prosthesis ( teeth set)Cement retained prosthesis andNo loosening of prosthesisMostly Screw retained prosthesis and prosthetic loosening chancesare there
Prosthesis removal /retrievalDifficult and time consuming but possibleEasy prosthesis retrieval
Manufacturing CompaniesVery less and all basal implants(mostly) are from Swiss madeMany different manufacturing companies across the globe and their componentsare company specific..

I recently had the pleasure of visiting Dental Implant Studio and I couldn't be happier with the experience. After enduring years of unpleasant encounters at other clinics, i was hesitant, but from the moment i walked in, i was impressed with how welcoming and attentive the staff was. Dr. Sudhakar Reddy was not only skilled but also took the time to explain each step of the process, alleviating any concerns i had. The treatment itself was top notch and the results exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend anyone seeking exceptional dental care.

He is the top-notch dentist for dental implant services. I consulted him for my dad's permanent teeth implant. Despite my dad's thin dental bone, the doctor was confident in performing the implant. The procedure was intricate, but the results were almost flawless. It's been six months since the implant, and there have been no issues so far. The doctor is exceptionally friendly and supportive. Many thanks to him for treating my dad well and improving his quality of life.

I am settled in the United States of America. I have been getting my dental implants done in India by Dr. Sudhakar Reddy since 2017 when he was a visiting surgeon at other dental clinics. Recently (in 2021), I discovered that Dr. Reddy has his own clinic in Bengaluru. I got three implants in my upper jaw at Dr. Sudhakar Reddy's Dental Implant Studio. I have not felt the need to see any other dental surgeon in India since then. He did a perfect job of placing the implants. Dr. Reddy has also done crowns for my new implants just a few weeks ago. The healing was fast. I felt no pain or discomfort during the procedure. Dr. Reddy is consistently improving his skill level and keeps up-to-date on latest developments in dental science and technology. He always uses the best in class products (including implants). Above all Dr. Reddy is a very friendly and compassionate person. That by itself is an exceptional quality of the physician in this money driven World. I recommend all my family and friends to see Dr. Reddy for all their dental treatment needs. Great job Dr. Sudhakar!

I'm writing this review after 3 years of my implant being done by Dr. Sudhakar Reddy. It was during lockdown and he first of all followed all protocols and maintained top level hygiene. I got the treatment completed in 3-4 seating and visited doctor twice after that for regular check-ups. The reason to write this review after 3 years is I feel thankful to him many times for the way he has treated me, very professionally done and god's grace have not had any issues since then. Thank you Dr. Sudhakar for treating me and so many others, making us healthy and putting a smile on our faces.

I highly recommend it to everyone. Professional service, professional approach to the patient and heart put into each tooth. I have traveled all the way from UK to India for my treatment and every mile was worth it. I have done 3 implants and zirkonium crowns. The result is better than I was expected

I have been to many dentists in Australia, but none as caring as calm as gentle as Dr Sudhakar Reddy. He has made my experience of dental implants from a night mare to the most calming, soothing voice that was constantly asking me if i was okay when the surgery was taking place. He had made all my fears go away. He is very thorough with his explanation, with the highest quality of equipment used, especially the state of the art digital measurements, which has made my experience such a pleasure. I would highly recommend Dr Reddy to anyone who needs dental implants 👍👍👍

I simply can't say how impressed and thankful I am to Dr. Sudhakar Sir. What a great experience!. My mother had major dental problems, and she was suffering for long time. But after long search, We contacted dental implant studio. The moment we stepped in, to the moment I got my mother cured, the environment there was extremely friendly and they are very efficient. Before going there we had no idea about the procedure and the cost, but the docter was very helpful and made it much affordable for us. Highly recommend!

Dental Implant Studio, Jayanagar I visited this clinic seeing the best Google reviews about it. I'm glad to say I too had a pleasant experience. I was apprehensive about dental treatment but Dr.Reddy explained me very well, made me comfortable before the procedure & treated me very well. Even the post opp care, follow up & concern is very good. I got my molar implant done. It healed very well, very less pain. I personally recommend it for your dental care. The clinic is very neat, clean & hygienic as post post COVID that is a major concern. All the necessary precautions are taken & everyone wears there dental gear.
