Severely resorbed edentulous ridges represent a challenge for implant-supported dental restorations, both from an esthetic and functional point of view, due to the lack of alveolar bone and unfavorable local conditions which may compromise the final outcome of rehabilitation, such as unfavorable intermaxillary relationship, lack of attached gengiva, excetera. The objective of this presentation is to show the present possibilities in restoring alveolar defects by means of autogenous bone grafts (both standard grafts and revascularized bone transplants), distraction osteogenesis, and osteotomies, in association with or followed by the placement of dental implants, highlighting indications, possibilities, and limits of different surgical options as well as survival and success rates of implants placed in reconstructed sites.

Abstract

Severely resorbed edentulous ridges represent a challenge for implant-supported dental restorations, both from an esthetic and functional point of view, due to the lack of alveolar bone and unfavorable local conditions which may compromise the final outcome of rehabilitation, such as unfavorable intermaxillary relationship, lack of attached gengiva, excetera. The objective of this presentation is to show the present possibilities in restoring alveolar defects by means of autogenous bone grafts (both standard grafts and revascularized bone transplants), distraction osteogenesis, and osteotomies, in association with or followed by the placement of dental implants, highlighting indications, possibilities, and limits of different surgical options as well as survival and success rates of implants placed in reconstructed sites.
