Dr. Tomislav Krhen

Patient presented with a failing bridge on the right distal part of the maxilla with periodontally compromised tooth 15. A two-step surgery with bone augmentation and sinus lift procedure, followed by implant placement was planned. Sinus lift procedure was performed using cerabone® mixed with autogenous bone and Jason® membrane. In addition, horizontal ridge augmentation was performed at site 15 as well as overcontouring at site 13-12. Clinical and radiological follow-up 5 years post-operative shows stable bone volume with no gum recession, minimal pocket depth on probing, no BOP.
