Abstract

Aim of this work is to present the evolution of an innovative technique for tooth/implant supported bone distraction, leading to proper oral rehabilitation in patients with atrophic alveolar bone, even when a complete premaxilla expansion is needed, or in patients in whom implants were already present, but inserted in wrong position.

Distraction osteogenesis was selected because of its moderate invasiveness, the few surgical steps needed, and the proper cost/benefits balance. This procedure is particularly suited for young patients with remarkable aesthetic demands related to active social and working life, as for elderly patients expecting lower surgical stress and risks.
