Bone regeneration around an osseointegrated implant. A simultaneous approach in a fenestrated defect: A case report

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The use of a barrier membrane, with or without osseous allograft, has been shown to establish regeneration of osseous tissue around dental implants. Following three episodes of persistent symptomatic failed apicoectomy and subsequent tooth extraction, an osseointegraled implant was placed in a wide fenestrated defect. Demineralized freeze-dried bone allograft was covered by an occlusive expanded polytetrafluorethylene membrane. The reentry procedure revealed complete bone fill that followed the texture of the augmentation material beyond the previous buccal bony envelope.
