Splitting and expansion of the alveolar process in preparation for a tooth transplantation, by Asst. Prof. Priv. Doz. Dr Georg D. Strbac
Aim of Treatment
The transplantation of wisdom teeth with incomplete root development is a tried-and-tested alternative to the use of implants. For the tooth to be transplanted to have good changes of healing successfully, it needs to be preserved to the greatest possible extent during its removal from the alveolus – this is especially applicable to the periodontium. Piezosurgical instruments are optimally suited for this purpose and also for the preparation of the recipient site.
