Abstract

A variety of surgical techniques and grafting materials for the purpose of ridge augmentation have been developed during the last three decades. Recently, the use of customized allogeneic bone blocks, prepared by CAD/CAM techniques, has been introduced. This new augmentation technology may significantly reduce surgical time and improve donor-recipient fit and adaptation. However, promising clinical and histologic results have been published in only a few short-term case reports. The 3-year follow-ups of these two case reports may provide more clinical data on the use of the customized bone blocks for horizontal and vertical ridge augmentation in the posterior mandible.
