Collection of 6 illustrations. Split ridge technique illustrated step-by-step.
Ridge splitting technique for single dental implant placement at the maxilla.
Collection of 6 single images:

The gap created by splitting is left empty. Transverse expansion allows for immediate dental implant installation. Sagittal section of the upper jaw.
