Bone volume and interdental space

Key points

  • Consider available jaw bone volume in transversal (mesio-distal) and vertical dimensions using conventional intraoral radiographs. Sagittal (buccolingual) bone dimension is preferably evaluated with cross-sectional imaging.
  • Base treatment options on available bone dimensions.
  • Beware of root anatomy of adjacent teeth.
