The sheet sums up the case of a 42-year-old patient who had a compromised element 34 due to severe peri- implantitis that had already forced the surgeon to remove an implant previously inserted in position 35. The patient was treated by extracting the compromised element and performing a bone graft with a view to preservation of the alveolar process using Bio-Gen Putty. No flap was elevated and, after performing atraumatic extraction, the Bio-Gen Putty was grafted by placing it directly into the post-extraction site without performing any preliminary hydration.
Three months after the graft, graft radio- opacity was such as to be able to assume the degree of bone regeneration was compatible with the insertion of an osseointegrated implant. A bone biopsy was collected from the implant site during the implant placement procedure that underwent histomorphometric analysis. Three months later the patient was permanently rehabilitated.
