The morphological structure of the alveolar ridge of the maxilla and / or mandible is an important predictor of the possibility of gingival recession development. The narrow alveolar ridge in the lip-lingual dimension, especially with the thin biotype of the gingiva, is one of the factors predisposing to the development of this pathology. It may hinder or prevent the course of orthodontic treatment as an independent therapy method or as part of the orthodontic-otognathic treatment. In addition, the reconstruction of the narrow alveolar ridge may be an alternative procedure in relation to some orthognathic procedures, making it possible to carry out treatment in a minimally invasive manner.
The aim of the presentation will be to present the bone reconstruction method using a 3D allogenic bone block in the prevention and treatment of gingival recession in the course of orthodontic treatment. The lecture will present the rules for the qualification of patients for the treatment, the procedure including the methodology of bone graft surgery and long-term effects of the performed procedures. The complications associated with the treatment will also be analysed.
