GBR at an implant site using cerabone® plus and mucoderm® – SURGERY
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.
