Use of Flex Cortical Sheet in horizontal GBR and delayed implant rehabilitation
Today we present a case report published in the May 2023 issue of Implant Tribune.
The article describes delayed implant rehabilitation in a young patient with severe horizontal resorption.
Bone augmentation was performed through horizontal GBR, using 0.5-mm-thick flexible cortical bone sheet (Osteoxenon® Flex Cortical Sheet) together with collagen-preserved equine-derived granules (Osteoxenon®, Mix Granules) mixed with osteopromotional gel (Activabone® DBM Gel).
Bioteck grafts have both the collagen and the mineral component preserved, thanks to the enzyme-based deantigenation process from which they are obtained (Zymo-Teck®), and they remodel completely with the patient’s bone.
Upon reopening at 6 months, a significant volumetric increase and perfect remodeling of the bone grafts was observed…
