Treatment of vertical bone loss by using cerabone®, autologous bone and Jason® membrane

Prof. Rafael Ortega Lopes

The patient (woman, around 30 years) presented with severe pain in the lateral incisor and a deficient adhesive provisional. Bruxism resulted in canine loss and premature contact in the lateral incisor. The CBCT scan indicated advanced vertical bone loss. For augmentation cerabone® was mixed with autologous bone (ratio 1:1) and covered with Jason® membrane. Due to its high stability cerabone® provides optimal support of the newly formed bone. Jason® membrane is characterized by a long barrier function and high tear resistance. The clinical follow up after 3 and 4 years demonstrates an aesthetic and stable result.
