[Diagnostic / Planning]  Split ridge or not.

I’m planning full arch fixed or implant retained overdenture  the ridges are plenty long but not wide   Do you suggest split the ridge or buccal grafting .  The 22 space looks good but all else , especially upper right quad is very narrow .  The 13 ,12 , and 23 area have  dehiscence but some width.

Thank you so much for your detailed reply.  I doubt this patient will want to go through all the augmentation with his advanced age, but I have a colleague who uses the DENSA system and I will pick his brain.  At least we might be able to place a few implants for an overdenture.
