At the conclusion of this symposium, participants will be able to:

  1. Describe how to ridge split the mandible and how to use particulate material for horizonal ridge augmentation.
  2. Discuss the advantages and disadvantages of using onlay grafts harvested from the mandible for horizontal ridge augmentation
