2 Stage Lateral Augmentation - No Spongy Bone & Poor Blood Supply
Patient of around 40 years of age who came to consult for implant treatment in 28 and 29. 29 is mobile.
After the CBCT examination, the ridge is very thin and the quality of the bone is type 1 - dry and with very poor blood supply.
We decided to extract 29 and perforate the vestibular cortex, and apply 3D Bond for 7 weeks to revitalize the surrounding bone.
When the site is reopened, the bony environment is quite different, highly vascularized, and at this stage, is more suitable for bone grafting. It is important to note not to remove the new vascularized tissue and apply directly to it Bond Apatite as the long term space maintainer in order to reach the desired volume.
After another 3 months, we reentered the site and were very satisfied to find a ridge of about 8 mm in thickness, ready for implants to be placed.
