Thickening of labial bone using "Sausage" technique with Jason membrane and Cerabone
The ideal buccal bone width around an implant is 2-4mm in order to maintain soft tissue and aesthetic stability over the long term.(Grunder 2005). Accepting a small amount of bone on the buccal of the implant without further grafting is a recipe for long term disaster. In this case we use a sausage technique with Jason membrane ( a pericardium membrane) with xenograft in order to further augment the buccal bone thickness. The sausage technique was described by Istvan Urban.
