Case Study
Purpose: The objective of the present study was to clinically evaluate the effectiveness of autograft and alloplast combined with a titanium membrane for lateral ridge augmentation. Material and methods: Autograft and allograft as an augmentation material, in conjunction with titanium membrane. Results: Bone defects of 3.5 mm can be augmented by using autografts and allografts. Bone width gained at 5 months after augmentation was 6 mm.
