A significant bony defect in the area of the left maxillary first molar
A 56 years old patient in good health presented for treatment of the upper left first molar area. Previous surgical history of infection and tooth removal. The initial presentation demonstrates a significant bony defect in the area of the left maxillary first molar that precluded the placement of a dental implant. The area was grafted with 3D bond ( Augma biomaterials) biphasic calcium sulfate bone graft cement and primary closure was obtained.
At 2.5 months post grafting the radiograph reveals good bone healing and during surgical reentry an adequate ridge volume was present to allow the placement of a dental implant.
