Vertical and Horizontal Augmentation in the Edentulous Maxilla using rh-BMP2

0 Rating(s).


Posted on By Fernando Silva In Bio-modifiers: BMP-2 / PRGF

A 46 years old female patient presented with an extensive bone lost at the maxilla due to combination syndrome. A bilateral sinus augmentation using piezotome and OsteoGen® was combined with an anterior maxilla rh-BMP2 augmentation (INFUSE® Bone Graft) using a collagen membrane as vehicle and a titanium membrane for protection.
After 8 months it was possible to install 8 (4X8,5mm and 4X10,0mm) implants as a result of a considerable gain of bone demonstrated by histologic exam.

great case. thank your for sharing. did you have no concerns for dehiscence using a prosthesis for 8 months ? What are your general experiences with titanium meshes with dehiscence?

Have you ever had mesh exposed 1 week post op from surgery which included Infuse?? What would you do in a case like that?? Thank you for sharing your case.

Where did you order the titanium mesh for custom fit to this case?
