Vertical bone augmentation in a single-tooth gap with an allogenic bone ring: Clinical considerations
Giesenhagen et al. (2018). J Esthet Restor Dent. 2018;1–4
The main objective of this case report is to introduce a one-stage bone block augmentation with a cylindrical freeze-dried bone allograft (FDBA) and simultaneous implantation for the reconstruction of a single-tooth bone defect.
The report describes this method on the basis of radiographical and clinical images derived from a single patient.
The report demonstrates the time-saving and successful application of this treatment concept, which has the potential to increase patient satisfaction and comfort.
The application of the presented technique enabled a prosthetic rehabilitation of the extracted tooth about 3 months earlier as compared to the conventional procedure, while demonstrating no compromises regarding clinical outcome, functionality and esthetics
