Rim Resections of Alveolus Procedure

• ink the external periosteal limit along one aspect to aid orientation of subsequent histolog-ical sections.

• measurements:

- anteroposterior length (cm) along alveolus.

- maximum bone height (cm).

- associated soft tissue elements (e.g., mucosa) in the usual fashion.

• saw the bone into 0.5 cm slices in the buccolingual plane (vertical plane passing between crowns of adjacent teeth). If the attached mucosal tumour is larger than 1 cm diameter, sample tumour and margins in the usual fashion prior to sawing the bone.

• if the attached mucosal tumour is smaller than 1 cm diameter, saw the bone into 0.5 cm slices in the buccolingual plane (vertical plane passing between crowns of adjacent teeth) without disturbing the soft tissue.
