Creating longevity in implant dentistry is the summation of three main elements.
1. Confidence in implant stability, position, and angulation
2. Comfort level with the technique or approach employed
3. A cornucopia of bone
Site development is at the core of my surgical technique, and minimally invasive ridge augmentations are just one of the ways I can achieve confidence and a level of comfort in my implant placement. Utilizing this GBR (guided bone regeneration) approach, we will explore how to create our cornucopia of bone to ensure maximum bone volume at the time of implant placement.
