long term follow up of vertical augmentation
Vertcial augmentation is predictable or not ?
12Y follow up of sandwich augmentation.

Extensive loss of alveolar bone and teeth in the anterior mandible presents a complex problem for reconstruction. Numerous augmentation techniques are currently in use to create sufficient bone volume for reliable placement of endosseous implants in the case of severely resorbed mandibles.
complete osteotomized segment was made, using the piezoelectric saw, to make a segmented bone in the atrophic edentulous area and the mobile segment was elevated by 10-mm high vertically. Interpositional mineral allograft materials were inserted in the space between the basal bone and the segmented bone.
No follow up CBCT was taken. Periapical radiogram is enough to elevalute bone stabilty.
No suppuration and gingival problems are revealed for last 12Y follow up. Thank you
