FORD-MARTINELLI, Vanessa Louise et al. Alveolar ridge preservation?: Decision making for dental implant placement. CES odontol. [online]. 2012, vol.25, n.2, pp.44-53. ISSN 0120-971X.

Bone resorption is a physiological consequence of tooth loss that could be a significant functional and an esthetic risk for dental implants. The dimensional changes of the alveolar ridge could be managed with different graft materials and surgical techniques that have been reported in the scientific literature. The purpose of this review is to explore the indications and present actual techniques to help prevent residual ridge resorption, as much as possible, guaranteeing the success of Prosthodontic rehabilitation with implants.

Keywords : Alveolar ridge preservation; Alveolar ridge resorption; Tooth extraction; Bone grafting; Dental implants.
