Bone Block Grafts *Graphic Images*

Case ID: 3693

Individual results may vary.

Case Details

A patient wishes to have teeth for the upper anterior segment of the mouth but does not want to resort to wearing any type of removable denture. Unfortunately, the width of the anterior alveolar bone is only 2-3 mm thick and will not be able to accommodate any of the desired implant sizes. As a result, 2 block blocks are harvested from separate areas of the patient’s jaw. One of the bone blocks are prepared and converted into 2 bone shields (or bone shells) and bone chips while the other bone block is prepared and converted to bone particulate. The pieces of bone are then placed and fixated within the targeted area accordingly and allowed to heal for 4-6 months before dental implant(s) are placed.

Description: The completion of the bone block procedure has made an improvement for an additional gain of 8 mm resulting in an overall bone width of 10-11 mm of bone thickness which will be quite sufficient to support a desired implant size of 3 to 4 mm which is ideal for this particular location.
