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…

It consisted of a mandibular reconstruction in height with tunnel access. We would like to thanks all the speakers and the organisation for such an educational, well-organised and even friendly event – particular…

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…

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…

Gaining 9mm of height in the mandible: Implant surgery

As we saw in the previous post, which you can view here, we reconstructed a posterior mandibular defect with a height of 2.4 millimetres to the dental nerve. After the mandibular reconstruction, the patient became pregnant, and came back to us after one year. We requested a cone beam CT prior to implant placement, where we…

Dear Colleagues, This 33-year-old patient – smoker of half a packet a day – came to us with no relevant medical history, having had a cyst in the region of the right mandibular body in 2007. He had had extractions of the affected teeth – 43, 44, 45 and 46 – and was operated on…
