Three-Dimensional Microplate-Enhanced Alveolar Ridge Augmentation--An Alternative to Nerve Transposition

Meltzer/Edenbaum


PMID: 9497719
DOI: 10.11607/prd.00.0217

The placement of endosseous implants in the atrophic posterior mandible has presented a challenge to the surgeon and restorative dentist. Traditional procedures eithe rrequire nerve transposition or utilization of implants placed at less than favorable angles. A technique is presented for the three-dimensional augmentation of the atrophic alveolar ridge utilizing microplate-enhanced guided bone regeneration technology. The applications of this technique in other intraoral and extraoral sites are currently under investigation by the authors.
