Use of biphasic calcium sulfate bone graft cement in GBR
Hi...First post on DentalXP.
The patient had two failing lower left premolars. There was a buccal plate defect. The teeth were extracted and granulomatous tissue removed. No flap was elevated. The patient is phobic and did not want any unnecessary surgical manipulation next to the nerve. The sockets and defects were grafted with Biphasic Calcium Sulfate/ HA ( Bone cement). Three months post-op, implants were placed in the area and additional bone cement was used to cover the partially exposed threads of one of the newly placed implants. The implants are still healing ( sx was performed in October). Thank you
