Alveolar ridge augmentation is a surgical procedure which compensates the lack of need for bone implants. Depending on the area and the size of the defect, there are several techniques. Causes of bone loss can be physiologically, after tooth extraction due to aging and pathology, which include periodontal disease, as well as processes in the bone (granuloma, cysts, tumors). Bone loss is present after the oral surgery, trauma, and long-term wearing of removable dentures.
Irregularities of the alveolar ridge in the upper and the lower jaw can result in a lack of bone mass which is needed for the installation of the implant. Such irregularities may be caused by periodontitis, wearing dentures, developmental abnormalities or injuries. Not only do these irregularities can cause problems when setting the implant, but will create aesthetic problems and prevent optimal oral hygiene. In order to correct such deficiencies bone ridge augmentation may be (increased) bone restorations.
