The advantages of localized ridge augmentation prior to implant placement: a staged event
Nevins / Mellonig / Clem III / Reiser / Buser
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.
