Anterior mandibular defect reconstruction
This 57 years female ipatient removed a glandular odontogenic cyst one year ago.A 2.4 reconstruction plate was placed in the mandibular base to prevent fracture and a 2.0 plate was placed in the alveolar region to keep the space under the soft tissue for the reconstruction of the bone (top plate exposed in the oral cavity). One year later, surgery was performed to reconstruct the bone defect. A "visor" osteotomy was made with piezo and the lingual segment was fixed superiorly. The gaps were filled with Infuse associated with Biooss in the ratio of 50% / 50%.A bioabsorbable mesh was placed over the graft and soft tissue closure was achieved through vestibuloplasty ("lip switch").
