Furthermore, there was little variation among the samples tested: 6.6 [+ or -] 1.65 mm from the IOF to IOM and 29.23 [+ or -] 1.65 mm from IOF to alveolar process of the maxilla at the second premolar.
Dental trauma is a significant problem that may have serious outcomes on children and their parents.1 Traumatic injuries in permanent dentition can appear rather severe, particularly when dental tissue injuries are associated with trauma to the supporting tissues.2 It was reported in a study that bone, facial lamella and alveolar process fractures constitute 50%, 23.9% and 4.4% of the total with various levels, respectively.3 A common location of the alveoler process fracture is the anterior region.
During these studies, the joulemetry of the intact periodontal tissue was carried out on 12 sites in the field of the second teeth on the upper and lower jaws of the left and right frontal area of the alveolar processes of the upper and lower jaw, the first premolars, and in the area of sixth teeth of upper and lower jaws on the left and right areas of the alveolar ridge in the posterior region.

They cover clinical scenarios for implant dentistry, imaging for dental implant treatment planning, implant-related anatomy, common pathology and normal variants encountered during implant analysis, alveolar process augmentation, post-procedure evaluation of implants, the radiographic appearance of implant complications.
Studies (4) of the mandible have used the mental foramen as a constant anatomic landmark based on the relative constancy of the relationship of the foramen to the inferior border of the mandible in spite of resorption of the edentulous alveolar process.

The presence of roots in alveolar process maintains bone volume and avoids atrophy (Anders- son et al.
However, reconstruction of the alveolar process through an alveolar bone graft is generally approved for the treatment of CLP patients with involvement of the alveolar ridge.
[12] reported the desirable and reliable idea of segmental distraction of the anterior alveolar process using the hinged bone plate.
