Recent Case Studies
This case shows how a highly resorbed maxillary central and lateral incisor region was grafted with an autologous bone block and particulate bone chips harvested from the ramus in a special split block technique prior to implant placement. Soft tissue grafting followed. The final result was very satisfactoryView Case Study
This case shows how a failing reconstruction with extensive bone loss in the anterior region was transitioned to an implant-supported hybrid reconstruction. This required two rounds of bone augmentation. First, block grafts were applied to the deficient anterior region. Later, external sinus lifts were performed. Only then was it possible to place six implants which, when integrated, could support the final reconstructionView Case Study
This case shows how an extremely infected and destroyed maxillary anterior region is able to be healed and regenerated. The alveolar reconstruction was based on using an autologous bone block taken from the mandibular ramusView Case Study
