Bone augmentation is a collective term used in dental surgery to refer to a number of reinforcement surgeries that are done for jaw defects. The Onlay augmentation or grafting is a unique bone augmentation method that can be used on both the upper and lower jaw. This is done when the alveolar ridge regression is uneven.Jaw bones are augmented by using bones from other parts of the patient’s body, bone from animals such as cattle or even synthetically manufactured bone.Transplanted human bones have the highest success rate as they heal best when compared to animal or synthetic bones.
