Autogenous Bone Block Harvesting from Jaw and into Deficient Area needing 2 Teeth Extractions and 4 Dental Implant Placements

Case ID: 4322

Individual results may vary.

Case Details

A patient has a failed 5-unit dental bridge and needs the extraction of 2 teeth as a result. The area of missing teeth will then increase from 2 to 4 and a new 6-unit dental bridge is not possible due to the excessiveness of the longer span of space. Therefore, 4 dental implants will be placed on the day of the extraction of two of the teeth supporting the dental bridge. However, the bone directly below initial dental bridge has deteriorated to the point that it cannot support dental implants unless additional procedures are performed to restore the bone. As result, a bone block harvesting procedure will be performed where bone will be taken from the patient’s own jaw bone and transplanted into this area under the original dental bridge. Therefore, on the same day of the placement of the 4 dental implants, teeth will be extracted as well as the autogenous (self) bone grafting procedure with bone augmentation.
