Methods of Bone Augmentation

The previously mentioned evaluations and tools will help the clinician determine need for grafting. Various alveolar bone augmentation techniques are available to facilitate these grafting needs. These techniques can be broadly classified as additive techniques and modification of the existing bone volume. The key to long-term stability of the graft and success of implant therapy lies in the clinicians understanding of the indications and limitations of each of these techniques.
