Lateral ridge augmentation has become a standard treatment option to enhance the bone volume of deficient recipient sites prior to implant placement. In order to avoid harvesting an autograft and thereby eliminating additional surgical procedures and risks, bone grafting materials and substitutes are alternative filler materials to be used for ridge augmentation. Before clinical recommendations can be made, such materials must be extensively studied in experimental models simulating relevant… CONTINUE READING
