Bone: Biology, Harvesting, and Grafting for Dental Implants

Arun K. Garg

Dental implant placement often requires bone grafting to ensure sufficient bony support for the implants being placed. Depending on the biologic conditions of the patient, including the level of bone atrophy and the status of the remaining teeth in the mouth, more adjunctive procedures like bone harvesting or sinus grafting may be required. This book covers it all, from the biology of bone and how dental implants work within that framework to the many procedures for harvesting bone and using it to augment sites for implant placement. The different types of bone grafts and membranes are discussed as well as procedures to preserve the alveolar ridge following tooth extraction. Bone is easier to preserve than replace, but you can only preserve what is not already lost, and this book explains how to manage bone in all patient scenarios to ensure successful implant placement. Dr Garg was a pioneer in dental bone grafting, and this new edition keeps him at the forefront of the field.Contents 1. Bone Biology and Physiology for Dental Implantology 2.
