Abstract

Bony augmentation of the moderately to severely resorbed alveolus in preparation for endosseous dental implant placement can be challenging for the oral and maxillofacial surgeon. Autogenous bone remains the gold standard for alveolar grafting. Multiple extraoral bone graft sources can be used to help meet this challenge, including the iliac crest, proximal tibia, and calvarium. This article reviews the anatomy, harvest techniques, and morbidity associated with each of these donor sites.
