The bone in the prospective implant site can be expanded outwards by using a series of instruments. This procedure will allow to expand the walls of the bone. It can be done in selected areas like the front of the upper jaw. A small hole is first drilled though the center of the selected area. It can be filled with bone or an implant can be immediately inserted into the hole.  After this, the bone expansion area is much larger than it was before the bone expansion.
