Prior to commencement of surgery, careful and detailed planning is required to identify vital structures such as the inferior alveolar nerve or the sinus, as well as the shape and dimensions of the bone to properly orientate the implants for the most predictable outcome.
A wide range of grafting materials and substance may be used during the process of bone grafting/bone replacement. They include the patient’s own bone (autograft), Which may be harvested, from the hip (iliac crest) or from chin; processed bone from cadavers (allograft); bovine bone or coral (xenograft) or artificially produced bone-like substances. Alternatively, the bone intended to support the implant can be split and widened with the implant placed between the two halves like a sandwich referred to as a ‘ridge split’ procedure. The use of these grafts and their implementation in various cases with the help of membrane procedure will enhance the knowledge and the practice of Implant Dentistry.
