About this Book
This book explores the potential of bone grafting techniques to rehabilitate the maxilla through the placement of dental implants. As implant dentistry becomes increasingly well established and sophisticated, this book will help experienced surgeons to involve implant solutions as part of more challenging reconstructions in the upper jaw.
Starting with a recap on principles of bone biology, the book then considers implant integration in normal bone and with bone grafts. Grafting procedures are presented depicting a variety of bone harvest sites, followed by onlay and inlay grafting techniques. Approaches to sinus lifting, segmental osteotomy and distraction osteogenesis for augmentation protocols are provided.
