Bone addition or bone implant is that oral surgical procedure that has the purpose to create a recipient bone bed for a dental implant. There are increasingly more and more cases in which a dental implant cannot be inserted in that area because of the absence of sufficient bone volume to receive the diameter and length of the dental implant.

Bone additions can be performed at the same time as inserting the implant (when a small amount of bone is missing) or as a stand-alone procedure that will be followed, after a 4-12 months healing period, by the insertion of the dental implant.

The basic principle of bone additions is to create a volume in which the patient’s bone cells multiply; they can develop and eventually mineralize by creating a new bone.
