ISBN: 978-1-119-01988-6 February 2016 Wiley-Blackwell 360 Pages


Horizontal Augmentation of the Alveolar Ridge in Implant Dentistry: A Surgical Manual presents the four main methods of horizontal ridge augmentation in a clinically focused surgical manual. After an introductory section and requirements for dental implants, sections are devoted to each procedure: ridge-split, intraoral onlay block bone grafting, guided bone regeneration, and horizontal distraction osteogenesis.
  • Chapters written by international experts in each augmentation procedure
  • Step-by-step instruction for each technique
  • More than 1,100 clinical photographs and illustrations

These two texts will benefit the clinician and their patients.  Following the principles outlined in each chapter will certainly increase the clinician’s confidence and improve predictability of case results.  These texts are books that can and should be read and re-read many times by novice and seasoned clinicians.
