PMID:  19835748     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
This report reviewed the published data concerning different methods for vertical augmentation of the posterior mandible for implant placement. The main purpose was to compare and contrast the different treatment methods, with a more detailed review of the use of the interpositional osteotomy to vertically augment the posterior mandible. After the data review, we present a case illustrating this method. On the basis of the data review, the use of the interpositional osteotomy might be the method of choice for select patients.
