NOVAMag® Shield technique & immediate implant placement in anterior maxilla
Dr. Erick Mota
A 28-year-old patient came to the consultation with a fracture of tooth 21. The previous root canal treatment and resin restoration were unsatisfactory. Due to the fracture and injury, the patient had no vestibular bony plate.
Implant placement was performed with a conical connection using guided surgery. An intermediate abutment (One abutment one time) was placed to distance the prosthetic connection from the implant. To restore aesthetics and maintain tissue support, a provisional PMMA crown was placed, and the alveolar ridge was reconstructed using NOVAMag® membrane, connective tissue graft, and maxgraft®.
