RAMUS BONE GRAFT

In some particilar case, 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.
