Grafting of large vertical maxillary and mandibular alveolar ridge defects is difficult. The "tenting" technique involves the use of particulate allograft or block graft, in combination with specialized titanium screws, in a “tenting” fashion to augment large, localized, intraoral, vertical alveolar ridge defects for implant placement. Tenting with titanium screws maintains space and minimizes resorption of the graft.
These screws are suited for particulate or block grafting. Their specialized design provides significant advantages over traditional screws for either purpose. Tissue friendly, the 5.0mm broader head protects and stabilizes the graft. Additionally, use the 4mm thread depth for decreased risk to the nerve and tooth roots. Augment 3.0, 4.0, 5.0, 7.0 mm of height depending on polished neck.
