Guided Bone Regeneration Technique and Implant Placement in an atrophic mandibular first molar site

Posted on by Bicon

This treatment offers an alternative to ridge splitting procedures, demonstrating the molar implant placement and simultaneous guided bone regeneration of a 56-year-old woman’s atrophic left mandible. Because of the very thin and dense crestal bone, a high-speed drill was used to initiate the osteotomy prior to the successive use of latch and hand reamers, and the placement of a 4.5 x 6.0mm implant, which was covered with SynthoGraft™ within a collagen membrane pocket. The 5-year post-insertion clinical and radiographic images reveal a successful treatment with significant bone gain.
