Abstract

Alveolar distraction osteogenesis is a well-known technique used for the management of deficient alveolar ridges. Vector control of the transport segment is the main problem during distraction. This article describes a new technique for early removal of distractor and correction of tilted transport segment in partially edentulous patients.
