Bone augmentation should be performed prior to and/or simultaneously with implant placement when the preoperative examination shows a lack of alveolar bone volume at the implant placement site.
The goal of this study was to evaluate the effect of two types of rhBMP-2 soaked bone graft materials on the extraction socket and the safety of the material after tooth extraction and implantation.
Torus of the maxilla or mandible, maxillary tuberosity, sinus wall, zygomatic bone, symphysis or ramus. instruments such as trephine drill, mallet & chisel, bone scarper, or saw have been used for bone grafting.
Horizontal or vertical alveolar bone augmentation procedures usually cannot be avoided in edentulous regions. Many studies have shown that GBR is predictable treatment at infrabony defects. However, GBR on extrabony defects still shows a lack of predictability.
Patients and dental professionals today demand immediate yet positive results. After many years of research and clinical studies, depending on the case and patient, immediate implant placement has now become a popular course of action with predictable outcomes.
This report describes a simple method for soft tissue coverage of a guided bone regeneration (GBR) site using the double rotated palatal sub-epithelial connective tissue graft (RPSCTG) technique for a maxillary anterior defect.
Explanted fractured fixture (OSSTEM GSII) followed by a reimplantation of an SLA-surfaced implant (OSSTEM TSIII) in the mandibular posterior area.
Evaluate the implant and prosthetic survival rates, complications, marginal bone loss, using ultra-fine titanium mesh membrane and simultaneous implant placement, to provide space maintenance necessary for bone augmentation of alveolar bone defects.
