Dental Implant in the Anterior Esthetic Zone

Case ID: 2479

Individual results may vary.

Case Details

The patient has suffered an accident as a child and as a result have had his tooth knocked out. The many years of having a missing tooth at the site has resulted in the deterioration of bone volume in all dimensions as well as the closing of the tooth gap. As a result, orthodontic treatment is first provided to create the space needed for an ideal size tooth to fit at this site. Once the space has been created an autogenous onlay bone block graft is harvested from the patient’s lower jaw and is transferred and fixated to the proposed implant site to create the proper bone volume needed to support a traditional sized implant. After adequate healing has occurred at the site a dental implant is placed.
