The objective of the study is to evaluate the condition of the alveolar part of the upper jaw and the part of the mandible according to X-ray studies in postmenopausal women before and after surgical treatment of the atrophy of jaw bone tissue using osteoplastic material and an ossein-hydroxyapatite compound.

Materials and methods: There were observed 24 women in the postmenopausal period, aged from 51 to 58 years, with atrophy of the alveolar process of the upper jaw and the part of the lower jaw who were surgically treated.

Results of the study. On the basis of the obtained results of the X-ray examination, we can assume that the developed by us technique of surgical treatment of atrophy of the alveolar process of the upper jaw and the part of the lower jaw by the use of bone material of animal origin in combination with the ossein-hydroxyapatite compound allows us to intensify bone tissue regeneration processes, which further will contribute to the increase of the volume of bone tissue.

Conclusions. The use of modern X-ray methods, in particular orthopantomography and cone-beam computerized tomography in the diagnosis and surgical treatment of atrophy of the alveolar process of the upper jaw and the part of the lower jaw, are highly informative, and also provide the possibility of work with a roentgenographic image in a digital format that allows a more detailed assessment of the area of surgical intervention before and after the treatment.
