Augmentation of the alveolar ridge is widely performed in implant treatment to create predictable function and
esthetics in area with inadequate bone volume. There are some different ways to augment the alveolar ridge.
Distraction osteogenesis is a new method in increasing the width of the ridge and preparing a sufficient bed for implant
or prosthesis. Distraction osteogenesis result in formation of new bone between bone segments that are separated
gradually by incremental traction. Alveolar widening by distraction osteogenesis is an alternative method for
reconstructing alveolar atrophy that is similar to alveolar split grafting but without grafting, which offers many
advantages over traditional techniques. This paper is aimed to discuss considerations and technique of alveolar ridge
augmentation for preparing adequate bone volume before applying implant by using distraction osteogenesis
technique.
