The Surgical Key Factors for Long Term Successful Prosthetics
Modern implantology presents a permanent challenge to obtain an excellent esthetic outcome together with the restoration of the lost function and the good prognosis of the obtained result. One of the multiple treatment steps in obtaining this goal is to surgically restore the alveolar ridge deficiencies. Multiple methods have been described in literature for alveolar ridge augmentation, according to the morphology of the defect and the type of prosthetic reconstruction. A scientific and clinical evidence based wide range of augmentation procedures according to the type of defect, the reconstruction material and the treatment concept will be presented.
All kind of defects will be approached, from dehiscence defects and fenestrations, thin ridge with horizontal bone deficiency, vertical ridge deficiencies to combined horizontal and vertical alveolar ridge defects and total bone defects resulted after malformations or tumor surgery. The reconstruction methods vary from GBR techniques with autologous bone and biomaterials, resorbable membranes or titanium nonresorbable membranes to different bone block techniques – onlay, shell, horizontal or vertical augmentation with intraoral or extraoral source of bone, combined vertical and horizontal techniques with autologous bone blocks and GBR.
The alveolar ridge augmentation procedures will be analysed according to the implant survival rate, the augmentative effect and the complication rates of different materials and techniques. The analysis of each augmentation procedure will provide the clinician the rationale for choosing the most indicated surgical approach.
