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.
Clinical results of alveolar ridge augmentation
with mandibular block bone grafts in partially edentulous patients prior to implant placement.
INFUSE Bone Graft is also an alternative for bone grafting procedures that do not commonly use autogenous bone grafts such as for alveolar ridge augmentation
associated with extraction site procedures.
