Nowadays oral rehabilitation with dental implants is associated with a high survival rate, which doesn´t necessarily means a high success rate. When the alveolar ridge is insufficient in quality and/or quantity, there are several techniques supported by the literature, that allow clinicians to overcome those difficulties. Some possible techniques are, for example, osseodensification, bone regeneration with and without PRF and eventually, guided surgery to avoid less than ideal implant positioning.
Clinical examples of these techniques, performed in the Pos-graduate Program in Periodontology of the University of Lisbon will be presented and supported by meaningful scientific literature.
Participants will have examples of everyday clinical situations with insufficient bone quantity and/or quality and possible therapy modalities supported by scientific literature. One of the main goals of this presentation is to discuss treatment options since very frequently there more than one possible solution to overcome bone deficiencies.
