Introduction/Context

This is a clinical case demonstrating placement of dental implants in a resorbed edentulous ridge. A mandibular edentulous ridge with extreme bone resorption is does not have adequate buccal-lingual width to place dental implants. A ridge augmentation surgery can increase the width of bone to facilitate dental implant placement.

Methods

RIdge augmentation was performed using a resorbable membrane system. After 4 months, dental implants were successfully surgically placed.

Results

The ridge augmentation successfully increased the amount of bone required to place dental implants. Nobel active 4.3 x 10 mm implants were placed in the areas of #23 and #27.

Significance/Conclusions

Traditionally, a veneer graft is required to adequately increase the width of bone in order to place dental implants. The Sonic Weld system from KLS Martin is an alternative that does not require a donor site from the patient.
