Osseodensification Explained

Lesson
Materials

Overview

Osseodensification is a pioneering technique involved in implant dentistry. Dr. Fadi Hasan and his colleagues wrote an article entitled “Alveolar Ridge Expansion by Osseodensification-Mediated Plastic Deformation and Compaction Autografting: A Multicenter Retrospective Study.” In this lesson he’ll discuss how “Osseodensification preserves bone bulk, facilitates compaction autografting, and deforms trabecular bone in an outward strain, which results in alveolar ridge plastic expansion.” Note: We have no financial relationship or vested interest in Versah to disclose.
