Dr. Jochen Tunkel:
This case is part of a Split-Mouth-Study, patient had a bilateral bone defect requiring three-dimensional augmentation and was treated with autogenous and allogeneic bone plates (maxgraft® cortico) in 4th and 3rd quadrant respectively. Augmentative relining with a xenogeneic bone substitute material (cerabone®) and collagen membrane (Jason® membrane) minimized resorption processes and maintained bone volume in the long term.
Both augmentation materials led to equivalent bone gains horizontally and vertically. Summary of the study
