The Ridge augmentation procedure and Implant dentistry have evolved over the years and became a corner stone in our treatment plan. With that, a widespread number of practitioners have embarked on this journey raising the bar in demand and complications requiring newer more creative thinking to fulfill the challenges. With the advent of technologies and material, a more predictable result is achievable in this ever-changing environment.

Objectives- The lecture will cover the following topics:

  • Biologic fundamentals of Bone Regeneration: wound healing, space creation, space maintenance and stabilization
  • Biomaterials
  • Proper diagnosis of the defect from treating it as a site preservation to ridge augmentation at time of extraction or as a healed ridge.
  • The use of 3D technology to help us in visualization and choosing the proper procedure
