A clinically focused manual of the most important surgical techniques in alveolar bone augmentation, providing key information for managing cases in implant dentistry
The second edition of Essential Techniques of Alveolar Bone Augmentation in Implant Dentistry: A Surgical Manual, Second Edition presents a variety of key surgical bone augmentation techniques for ensuring proper bone width and height for dental implant placement. Enabling clinicians and dental students to rapidly locate information for cases requiring bone augmentation, this highly practical reference covers ridge preservation, horizontal and vertical ridge augmentation, soft tissue grafting for implant site development, tissue engineering techniques, and surgical alternatives to bone grafting in implant dentistry.
Succinct chapters written by a panel of more than 40 international leading clinicians, scientists, and teachers include step-by-step descriptions of each surgical procedure—supported by information on diagnosis and treatment planning and more than 1,000 high-quality clinical images and illustrations. This fully up to date second edition includes new coverage of 3D alveolar ridge defect reconstruction, procedures for vertical bone augmentation in the posterior maxilla, complete arch dental implant treatment using photogrammetry, metal-ceramic transitional maxillary implant rehabilitation, ridge-split expansion using piezoelectric surgery, and more.
- Presents the main techniques for horizontal and vertical alveolar ridge augmentation
- Contains essential clinical knowledge on bone biology, radiographic and prosthetic evaluation, incision designs, and wound closure
- Introduces alternative techniques such as zygomatic implants, pterygoid implants, and All-on-4 procedure for placement of dental implants that circumvent bone grafting
- Combines the most practical and efficient techniques from the First Edition of Horizontal Augmentation of the Alveolar Ridge in Implant Dentistry and Vertical Augmentation of the Alveolar Ridge in Implant Dentistry in a single and concise book
Essential Techniques of Alveolar Bone Augmentation in Implant Dentistry: A Surgical Manual, Second Edition is a must-have for both novice and experienced dental clinicians, implant dentists, oral surgeons, prosthodontists, and periodontists, and an invaluable resource for dental students and trainees.
