Book Chapter
Chapter 12 of the book "Peterson's Principles of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery" is presented. It reviews the indications and contraindications for several bone grafting strategies that augment alveolar vertical dimension. It notes that mandibular block autografts have been utilized extensively for alveolar ridge augmentation with great success. It cites the principles that should be followed for mandibular block graft success, such as performing recipient site preparation to enable access for trabecular bone blood vessels and osteogenic cells.
