Defect ostoeoplasty is often the beginning of dental recovery, since it is necessary for dental implantation.


Bone-augmentation can be made as onlay osteoplasty and interpositional osteoplasty. Autologous grafts (autografts) from hip, rip, calvary or intraoral cavity is ment as gold-standard for augmentation in any case. Disadvantages are higher morbidity of the donor-site or prolongation of operation time due to manual modelling of the bone. Therefore onlay osteoplasty can be performed using allogenic prefabricated 3D-Bonebuilder in different clinical indications instead of autografts. In some cases it is useful to combine orthognathic-surgery with bone augmentation. Comparing these different approaches – the lecture will show how to perform block graftings, onlay-osteoplasty, sandwich-osteoplasties and other techniques. Various casuistics are presented - from simple alveolar augmentation to full-arch maxillary reconstruction, from anterior maxillary reconstruction to facial recontouring

Learning Objectives:

Participants will learn about the possibilities and different methods of augmentation, decision making of indications and safe use of customized allogenic block transplants.
