Abstract

Objective. Because of increasing life expectancy and popularity of dental implants, surgeons face a larger number of osteoporotic patients who require bone augmentation. Relationship between low bone density/osteoporosis and bone graft success is still not clear. The purpose of this article is to review and summarize the literature regarding the success of alveolar bone augmentation in osteoporosis.
