Dr. Michael Kristensen performs a bone augmentation in the aesthetic zone of the maxilla using a customized allogenic bone block (maxgraft® bonebuilder). Following presentation of the bone defect, the allogenic bone block is fixed with screws for osteosynthesis and an enamel matrix derivative (Straumann® Emdogain®) is applied. A barrier membrane (Jason® membrane) is used to cover the augmented site for Guided Bone Regeneration. For a good clinical outcome, proper soft tissue mobilization and tension-free, saliva-proof wound closure are essential.
