About this item

Bone augmentation procedures have greatly benefited patients, as those with insufficient bone volume would previously not have qualified for dental implant therapy. Today, advancements in bone augmentation have increased the pool of qualified patients, have improved predictability, and reduced complications. Horizontal augmentation ensures proper bone width for dental implant placement, and vertical augmentation creates sufficient bone height.

Horizontal Alveolar Ridge Augmentation in Implant Dentistry: A Surgical Manual presents the four main methods of horizontal ridge augmentation in a clinically focused surgical manual. After an introductory section and requirements for dental implants, sections are devoted to each procedure: ridge-split, intraoral onlay block bone grafting, guided bone regeneration, and horizontal distraction osteogenesis. Also included is a section relating to intraoral soft tissue grafting to ensure acceptable esthetic outcomes, decision algorithm for bone augmentation, and tissue engineering of the alveolar complex. For each procedure, chapters describe the history of the procedure, diagnosis and treatment planning, the different techniques with case reports, and complications. A bibliography is provided in each chapter for additional learning.


Chapters written by international experts in each augmentation procedure

Step-by-step instruction for each technique

More than 1,100 clinical photographs and illustrations
