Surgically assisted rapid palatal expansion is the treatment choice to overcome limitations of conventional RPE devices by osteotomy procedures in which the maxillary basal bone is separated from its main structures of the skull, allowing rapid expansion with mainly skeletal effects in adult patients [7-9].
After the repositioning, a reciprocate saw was carefully used to conduct an osteotomy from the mental foramen to the retromolar region to divide the lingual cortical bone from the basal bone, taking care to avoid damage to the posterior teeth's apices (Figure 4(c)).
It is possible that the lingual and cortical basal bone of the symphysis has a more important role in the mechanical resistance of the mandible than the anterior cortical bone (van Eijden), although these hypotheses must be examined in future studies.
13 patients (group B) were affected by basal bone loss and required reconstruction surgery primary to implant positioning.
(The radiographic examination showed that the vertical line of the fracture ran along to the PDL septum and the horizontal line was located from the marginal to the basal bone. Also, the enamel dentin fracture of upper permanent central teeth was observed (Figure-1B)
These implants offer stable cortical engagement in the opposing basal bone.
The mandible is a horseshoe shaped bone and the body of the mandible on either side has the basal bone component and the mandibular arch embedding teeth.
A 15 mm linear incision was then made on the skin along the line of the mandibular basal bone; the masseter muscle below was blunt dissected to expose the lateral surface of the angle region.
