Ramus block bone graft

Ramus block bone graft

Block bone graft (Ramus graft)


In some particular cases, you have not enough bone for implant placement because of tooth loss from periodontal (gum) disease, injury or trauma, or a developmental defect. If your jaw is too short (up and down), too narrow (side to side), or both, you will need a procedure to add bone to your jaw before implant placement.

Indications for the mandibular ramus as a donor site include localized moderate to severe alveolar atrophy or a bone defect involving a one to four edentulous span. The anatomical proximility makes the ramus the site of choice for augmentation of the thin posterior mandible.
