The ISQ values were higher in the group which had alveolar ridge
augmentation irrespective of the time of measurement.
The initial height of the alveolar ridge
in Group 1 patients was 2.
sup],, Two small vessels or branches of the sublingual arteries enter the foramina on the lingual cortical plate in the lateral incisor region, close to the crest of the alveolar ridge
Overdenture obtains the dual support of both residual alveolar ridge
and abutment teeth [13,14].
8) The position of the front of the tongue for [[epsilon]] places the tip of the tongue just below the middle of the alveolar ridge
The alveolar ridge
mucosa possesses viscoelastic properties and is, therefore, one of the main supporting tissues for complete dentures in edentulous patients.
In this study DFDBA allograft was used as a useful substitute for autogenous allograft in patients with alveolar ridge
oval space--a space between upper and lower alveolar ridge
during jaw-jowl contraction,
Granulomatous tissue at the alveolar ridge
along with an ulcer at the tip of tongue was seen in another case (Fig.
A bone regenerative approach to alveolar ridge
maintenance following tooth extraction.
However, reconstruction of the alveolar process through an alveolar bone graft is generally approved for the treatment of CLP patients with involvement of the alveolar ridge
However, this time round instead of the airstream escaping through intermitted release phases as in the case of repetitive contacts for the trill--which are characterised by contact of tip of tongue with the alveolar ridge
and release of this contact over and over again--it now escapes on the sides of the tongue, hence lateral, and with a lot of turbulence, hence fricative.
Regarding the site distribution in the orofacial region, the most commonly involved sites in descen- ding order were tongue, lip mucosa, buccal mucosa, face, sublingual mucosa, hard palate, alveolar ridge
, retromolar area, soft palate, angle of mouth and flo- or of the mouth.
11,12) Thus, CBCT is frequently used for preoperative assessment of the alveolar ridge
and maxillary sinus in patients receiving implants in the posterior maxilla.
The first step was achieving significant tissue expansion (>2 cm) using Osmed pellets, guided into the submucosa and kept over the alveolar ridge
for several months (Fig.
