Posterior mandible vertical defect Part 1
The posterior mandible is one of the most difficult places to achieve vertical bone augmentation due to the density of the mandible bone, the thinness soft tissue and other factors.
This patient was referred to Jose Luis Dominguez-Mompell and me after losing two implants out of three and leaving a vertical bone defect.
A tunnel approach approach was performed combined with a Khoury box technique using bone autogenous blocks with particulate bone inside the box frame.
After 5 months two implants were placed.
Hope you like it and all comments are very welcome!
