Case studies show the benefits of Oral3D across different fields of dental expertise.
Generalized gingival erythema, with localized bleeding on probing. Probing depths ranging between 1–3mm, no furcation involvement, no mobility present. Mucogingival deformities and conditions around edentulous areas #9.
Determine the 3D implant position and evaluate the amount of bone that needs to be augmented.
The stent identifies the amount of bone augmentation needed for future implant placement in a prosthetic driven position.
A 3D model was printed and a CBCT was exposed in order to evaluate the ridge morphology.
Local anesthesia was achieved, using an anesthetic that will supplement the vasoconstriction in the area.
Basic steps of the procedure were followed: gingival flap elevation - full thickness, decortication - in order to increase the blood supply for the grafted area, adapting the Titanium Mesh, adding the hydrated bone graft and the membrane. The Ti Mesh will support the space, fixated by some screws in the apical portion, and assure a better stability of the regenerated bone. After the area was grafted, partial thickness of the buccal flap was prepared, releasing the periosteal attachment in order to achieve primary closure.
Horizontal mattress and simple interrupted sutures were used to approximate the flaps and achieve closure of the flaps.
After the 6 months healing period, the clinical and radiographic parameters were evaluated ith the prothetic stent in place. At this stage of the treatment, it is critical to assess the need of further bone grafting prior or simultaneous with implant placement.
After local anesthesia was achieved, the Ti Mesh was removed and the evaluation of the bone achieved in order to place the implant #9 area. It is critical to respect the vertical, horizontal and buccal-lingual dimensions and to use the sirgical stent for an accurate 3D position.
The implant is ready to receive a final implant-supported FPD.
