RAMBLA FERRER, Javier; PENARROCHA DIAGO, Miguel  and  GUARINOS CARBO, Juan. Analysis of the use of expansion osteotomes for the creation of implant beds: Technical contributions and review of the literature. Med. oral patol. oral cir.bucal (Internet) [online]. 2006, vol.11, n.3, pp.267-271. ISSN 1698-6946.

Sometimes, the severe superior maxillary atrophy compromises and even impide oral implants treatment. The use of rotatory instruments (drills) produce heat and lost of bone, but the osteotomes in implantology avoid this and simplifies the surgical treatment allowing implant installation with an easier technique. We present an expansive maxillary technique review, describing the main indications, advantages and disadvantages of this surgical procedure.

Keywords : Osteotomes; dental implants; osseous expansion; osseous regeneration.
