Several methods, membranes and graft materials have been proposed in recent years for alveolar ridge reconstructions. Some have been proved to be outstanding, but some have ended up in a nightmare situation. Is it the material, the selected type of surgery, the patient or we clinicians the main reason for success or failure. In the first part of the workshop, a guideline will be presented on the suggested methods and materials for different clinical scenarios, whereas in the second part augmentation of a resorbed alveolar ridge will be practiced.
- To identify different ridge defects
- To select the appropriate method and material for different clinical scenarios
- To practice the successful reconstruction of a resorbed narrow ridge
