BACKGROUND Reconstruction of alveolar defects in the posterior edentulous mandible can be a difficult task. In addition to complicating anatomic features, such as the inferior alveolar nerve, mental foramen, oblique ridge, and lingual undercut of the mylohyoid ridge, edentulous ridges in the posterior mandible have thicker cortices and decreased volumes of vascular trabecular bone than their maxillary counterparts. Traditionally, these areas have been treated with autogenous block grafts… CONTINUE READING
