Current Approaches of Horizontal or Contour Augmentation

Simon Storgård Jensen

Horizontal or lateral ridge augmentation is defined as any bone augmentation procedure of the alveolar ridge in the horizontal dimension. It can be performed using a block graft, particulate grafts, or guided bone regeneration (GBR) procedures. A subgroup of horizontal augmentation is contour augmentation, in which the augmentation is performed simultaneously with implant placement in the esthetic zone to ensure long-term favorable esthetics and function. The presenter clearly demonstrates the indications for horizontal ridge augmentation, followed by the choice of surgical techniques and biomaterials that assist in achieving high predictability and low complication rates. The lecture concludes with long-term results and clinical recommendations.

At the end of this Congress Lecture you should be able to…

  • define horizontal ridge augmentation and contour augmentation
  • describe the indications for horizontal ridge augmentation in localized defects in the alveolar process
  • recognize the surgical techniques and biomaterials for horizontal and contour augmentation, along with their respective primary and secondary goals
  • discuss the long-term results of simultaneous and staged horizontal ridge augmentation procedures
