The implants of Group A which were supported with the alveolar ridge augmentation
procedure showed a higher mean ISQ value of 74.
THE USE OF RAMUS BLOCK GRAFTS FOR VERTICAL ALVEOLAR RIDGE AUGMENTATION
AND IMPLANT PLACEMENT: A PILOT STUDY.
94) cancellous bovine bone to induce new bone formation Alveolar ridge augmentation
Zitzmann N et al.
Chin and Toth  were the first to report clinical usage of distraction osteogenesis for alveolar ridge augmentation
Despite these properties, our previous studies still reported that alveolar ridge augmentation
and 3-wall periodontal bone defect reconstructed by using CPC, without using a barrier membrane, were replaced by natural bone within 6 months after surgery (10), (14).
Recombinant human platelet-derived growth factor (rhPDGF) is now used widely in bone and periodontal regeneration and treatment of gingival recession, as is recombinant human bone morphogenic protein 2 (rhBMP-2) in sinus floor reconstruction and alveolar ridge augmentation
associated with extraction sockets.
