Vertical defects of the partially or totally edentulous ridges may render implant placement impossible or inadequate from a functional and esthetic point of view, due to the lack of bone, the proximity of important anatomical structures not to be violated, and the unfavorable intermaxillary relationships. Several bone augmentation procedures, aimed to recreate adequate bone volume to harbour implants of adequate dimensions placed in the proper, prosthetically driven position, have been proposed over the years. Aim of this lecture is to present updated data on the outcome of different augmentation procedures including autogenous bone grafts, allografts, GBR, and distraction osteogenesis based on the personal experience of the author and on the international literature. Advantages and disadvantages of the different procedures, including postoperative morbidity, as well as survival and success rates of implants placed in the reconstructed areas will be presented.
