Considerations for Successful Bone Augmentation & Ridge Preservation

Location:
Sydney, Australia
Date:
Friday 1st November 2019 - 5:00pm
Type:
Lecture
Speaker:
A/Prof Stephen Chen (Melbourne)

The inevitable consequence of tooth extraction is resorption and subsequent modelling of the alveolar bone. Bone augmentation is often required to compensate for the loss of bone volume, and to allow implants to be placed in the correct position and to optimise aesthetics. In contrast, ridge preservation aims to minimize this resorption and to enhance the ability for implants to be placed in the correct restorative position. This lecture will review the evidence for bone augmentation and ridge preservation procedures, and will outline the techniques involved. A discussion on grafting materials and socket closure techniques will be presented
