PURPOSE To evaluate by computerized tomography the long-term volume resorption of autogenous corticocancellous grafted bone harvested from the ilium and used in an alveolar augmentation procedure followed by endosseous dental implant placement. PATIENTS AND METHODS Eleven maxillary grafts (8 positioned horizontally) and 13 mandibular grafts (10 positioned vertically) were placed in 16 patients. Using software programs, pre- and postsurgical computerized tomographic scans were used to compare… CONTINUE READING
