Dental implants are the treatment of choice for the replacement of missing teeth now a days. But placement of implants in the alveolar bone remains a challenge for most of the clinicians because of the resorption of the residual ridge resulting in insufficient bone volume in one or more dimensions. Various surgical techniques to augment the thin ridges not only increases the morbidity but also results in increase of the expenditure involved as well as time taken. All these factors act as deterrents for the acceptance of the treatment plan by the patient. Need of the hour is to review the various bone manipulation techniques developed over the years and use a suitable conservative technique.
