The advantages of localized ridge augmentation prior to implant placement: a staged event

Nevins/Mellonig/Clem III/Reiser/Buser

PMID: 7928133
DOI: 10.11607/prd.00.0082

This paper demonstrates the successful reconstruction of alveolar bone destroyed by advances periodontitis and endodontic failure. It offers a stage approach that is predictable and is superior to extracting the tooth and simultaneously placing an implant fixture, or to extracting the tooth and not performing a ridge enhancement procedure. Four cases using guided tissue regeneration in combination with bone grafts prior to the placement of endosseous dental implants are discussed.
