This trial is evaluating whether Guided bone regeneration (GBR) will improve 1 primary outcome in patients with Horizontal Ridge Deficiency. Measurement will happen over the course of 6 months.
This trial requires 20 total participants across 2 different treatment groups
This trial involves 2 different treatments. Guided Bone Regeneration (GBR) is the primary treatment being studied. Participants will all receive the same treatment. There is no placebo group. The treatments being tested are not being studied for commercial purposes.
"Horizontal ridge deficiency often has many signs and symptoms. The main manifestations are deformity of maxillary and mandibular arch, overjumping of maxillary and mandibular third molars, and a proclined incisal third molar. A thorough oral and radiological evaluation is necessary to avoid unnecessary and even harmful orthodontic treatment of teeth." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"Horizontal and vertical bone defects have a similar rate of incorporation into the adjacent bone in humans. Results from a recent clinical trial, no benefit was observed by a single application of autograft in horizontal or vertical defects." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"Horizontal ridge deficiency is a well-described complication of cleft palate repair. However, the mechanism of cause may be either local or systemic. A combination of local and systemic alterations of cleft palate repair may explain the defect in the ridge." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"Some horizontal ridge deficiencies can be surgically corrected with a technique called sagittal split ramus osteotomy (SSRO), which is a minimally-invasive procedure. There were no complications associated with SRSO. However, the indications for SRSO vs. ORIF must be carefully analyzed to obtain the right treatment for each case." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"Half of all the reported incidences with this deficiency are actually Type I. This type of incidences could hardly have been treated by surgeons with modern surgical techniques." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"The procedure is a simple, minimally-invasive, and reproducible method with satisfactory results that is reliable and the most efficient technique for correcting HTRDF. It provides a good aesthetic outcome with satisfactory patient satisfaction." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"Advances in gbr procedures are rapidly advancing the field of gbr and are relevant to a large patient population who may be referred for surgical options to restore or reconstruct the mandible." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"Although there are many opinions about the most effective treatment for patients with HRD, the current literature does not contain enough information to define acceptable outcomes of treatment. We have established criteria to gauge the severity of HRD-based facial asymmetry in our institution, and our data suggest that the most important determinants are the extent of horizontal asymmetry, the patient's age, and previous surgery at the mandibular ramus." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"The current study did not demonstrate any significant difference in bone volume between the treated and control lesions for gbr, especially after 6 to 12 months. There were many factors that led to the uncertainty of the findings: a small sample size, a low bone remodel fraction and the inclusion of only high-risk cases." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"The current study did not identify any major technical or safety issues associated with the gbr to treat a horizontal ridge atrophy using the distraction osteogenesis method." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"The main side effect is bone resorption with minimal or no bone formation. The complication rate is high due to the requirement of multiple surgeries, and the patient needs to be informed about the high risks. For surgeons to successfully perform gbr, they need adequate knowledge of the potential problems that accompany gbr surgery." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"There is some difference in the mean age of presentation for the horizontal ridge deficiency when compared to the other malocclusions. However, there is a lack of significant difference [between different cohorts] for the mean age of presentation of the horizontal ridge deficiency." - Anonymous Online Contributor
