Dr. Frosecchi demonstrates implant placement with simultaneous soft and hard tissue augmentation at an edentulous site in the upper jaw. A 45-year old, male patient, assessed ASA1 had a previous fracture and subsequent extraction of tooth 23, which led to buccal bone atrophy after 6 months. The remaining bone was still sufficient to receive a 3.3 mm implant prosthetically driven. Despite implantation possibilities, the buccal concave profile was not sufficiently esthetic for the final restoration. The goal of the surgery was to obtain to change the concavity into convexity in a safe and stable way.
Dr. Frosecchi is Professor a c. in Implantology and Scientific evidences at the University of Genoa, Italy, and he is fellow of the Italian section of ITI. Since 2013 he runs a private practice in Florence, Italy.
Hello dear colleague. What type of suture did you use? In this case could use Cerabone also? Pros and cons? Congrats and TKU very much.
The doctor used 4-0 monofilament nylon sutures to achieve primary wound closure. Both cerabone® plus and cerabone®, which is the base product of cerabone® plus, are well suited to treat the type of hard tissue deficiencies shown in the video, as the non-resorbing properties of the cerabone® granules provide optimal bony support to the soft tissues. The hyaluronic acid contained in cerabone® plus in addition simplifies the application procedure as the material’s stickiness and malleability after hydration facilitates the transfer and adaptation of the graft to the surgical site.
