Horizontal augmentation with autogenous cortical bone plate with simultaneous implants placement
This is a case of a female patient in her 40s who came to us with a desire for a restorative plan that include implants suported crowns in the lower right quadrant.
After analyzing the CBCT it was obvious she needed horizontal bone augmentation for placing implants. We decided to go with a simultanenous approach for implants placement and bone augmentation, done at the same time using cortical bone plate ala Khoury technique.
This is an autologous membrane alternative to the preformed titanium membranes i often use for this type of situations.
P.s. I apologize for the bloody pictures, but the patient was bleeding from every corner of the surgical field. Very difficult to take a clean and clear shot.
