The paper provides methods of alveolar ridge augmentation using ring‑shaped transplant in combination with Ankylos implants considered to be an alternative of classic two‑stage augmentation. Describing advantages and disadvantages of various donor areas (chin, roof of mouth, retromolar lower jaw bone), the authors present sinus‑lift procedure and surgical techniques for marked lower jawbone atrophy, retention, and canine tooth dystopy.
