Ridge augmentation or Bone grafting

idge augmentation or Bone grafting is a surgical procedure to improve the shape and size of the alveolar ridge(s) in preparation to receive and retain a dental prosthesis.
If you have lost one or more teeth and would like to receive dental implants, time is of the essence. If you do not receive dental implants shortly after the tooth or teeth are lost, your jawbone will begin to deteriorate and lose its shape. When this happens, ridge augmentation can be used to reshape the jawbone.
There are several different procedures that can be used for ridge augmentation. The surgeon will select a procedure depending on the type, location and number of implants to be used.

For example :
 * Mild to moderate bone lost : Bone graft together with implant placement (Allograft)

Duration of treatment until completion of a crown on the implant for mild to moderate bone lost

1st step

  • Implant placement together with Allograft
  • Healing time at least 4 months

2nd step

  • Crown on the implant

*Severe bone lost : Block bone graft (Autogenous bone grafting)


Overtime significantly bone lost may occurs, resulting in the thin ridge. It may be impossible to place dental implants.

One procedure involves extracting the bone from an area of the jaw refer to us as the ramus

The bone is shaped in small blocks and secured to the thin ridge


A bone substitute product is used to adequately fill the surrounding area

And specialize covering are placed over the site to accelerate and improve healing


After the bone matures

Implants can be placed


After the jawbone bonds with the implants

The crowns can then be fabricated and installed on the implants

Duration of treatment until completion of a crown on the implant for severe bone lost

1st step

  • Block bone grafting
  • Healing time at least 6 months

2nd step

  • Implant placement
  • Healing time at least 2 months

3rd step

  • Crown on the implant



A wonderful serenity has taken possession of my entire soul, like these sweet mornings of spring which I enjoy with my whole heart. I am alone, and feel the charm of existence in this spot, which was created for the bliss of souls like mine.

I am so happy, my dear friend, so absorbed in the exquisite sense of mere tranquil existence, that I neglect my talents. I should be incapable of drawing a single stroke at the present moment; and yet I feel that I never was a greater artist than now.

When, while the lovely valley teems with vapour around me, and the meridian sun strikes the upper surface of the impenetrable foliage of my trees, and but a few stray gleams steal into the inner sanctuary, I throw myself down among the tall grass by the trickling stream; and, as I lie close to the earth, a thousand unknown plants are noticed by me: when I hear the buzz of the little world among the stalks, and grow familiar with the countless indescribable forms of the insects and flies, then I feel the presence of the Almighty, who formed us in his own image.
