Our dear colleague Yasser Chaib dedicates this case to us after attending our bone grafting course and wrote these words, Thank you Yasser! “In honor of two greats! Jose Luis Dominguez Mompell and Juan Lara Chao thank you for teaching us all about the 2D and 3D reconstructions. After a few months of finishing the…

Implant placement in augmented area

Continuing with this case, with which we saw a reconstruction in a horizontal defect on the anterior mandible of a 53-year-old patient. We also fitted implants to the canines and left the fitting of the rest of the implants for a later date due to insufficient osseous availability. After 4 months, we opened again and the placement of implants…

Anterior mandible atrophy

Today we are presenting a somewhat different case, from a 53-year-old non-smoking patient with no relevant pathology in their medical history apart from high cholesterol. The patient presents absences from canine to canine in the mandible with a notable horizontal atrophy. The anterior jaw is one of the most difficult areas to graft due to both the poor medular…

Vertical bone augmentation with the Khoury Technique and tunnel approach

We present the case of a patient who came to her consultation requesting a fixed prosthesis in the posterior mandible section. Clinical and radiological examination showed bone atrophy with a height on the dental nerve of approximately 7.5mm and a horizontal atrophy that precludes the placement of dental implants. In terms of treatment options, we…

Reconstruction of vertical defect located in the mandible

The next case we present to you is that of a middle-aged non-smoking male with no relevant medical history. This patient was referred to us because of a bone atrophy that precludes the placement of an implant in its ideal position. We observed a vertical bone atrophy in the 46th tooth, which we attributed to a traumatic…

Implants on 3D mandibular reconstruction

Dear Colleagues, A couple of months ago we saw a case of mandibular reconstruction with tunnel access, which you can view in full at: Gaining height in the posterior mandible. After waiting for 5 months, we performed dental implant surgery, using a modified Kazanjian Vestibuloplasty access to allow us to gain adhered gum and place the…

Lower overdenture: improving soft tissues

4 weeks ago, we saw the case of a patient with 4 dental implants in the mandible, who had extensive bone defects. We explanted 2 implants and placed 4 new dental implants in the mandible for a lower overdenture. You can view the case at: Lower overdenture: explantation and implantation. After waiting 3 months for the osteointegration of the…

Lower overdenture: explantation and implantation

The following 68-year-old male patient was referred to us for assessment. His medical history presented controlled arterial hypertension; four years ago, he was fitted with 4 dental implants in the mandible, since which time the patient has experienced irritation and, recently, pain. We requested a mandibular CT scan, where we observed massive bone loss around…

Gaining height in posterior mandible

The following 38-year-old non-smoking patient with no relevant medical history was referred to us. She had had three implants placed and following an infection, had lost two of them – leaving the defect visible in the photograph. We considered the possibility of short implants or mandibular reconstruction plus the placement of standard implants. With the…

The patient had a fixed prosthesis over 6 implants, placed 4 years ago in another clinic. At the point of the consultation, she complained of pain and bleeding while chewing and brushing. Following removal…
