Nerve Laterilsation

This is similar in aim to a sinus graft.

Where the back teeth were lost a long time ago and the bone that was around the teeth has shrunk, and you need to place dental implants where there is inadequate bone above the nerve. By moving the “cable” of the nerve of the lower jaw to the side, the bone below can be used also for implant placement to engage adequate bone volume.
