Marginal Implants Bone Loss – a Case Report
The aim was to show an available treatment for preventing ridge atrophy and optimize aesthetic mandibular area, whit socket preservation procedure.
So many practitioners talk about effect of surgical trauma during implant insertion. Particular factor may trigger more rapid attachment breaking, thereby producing an environment that will harbor many putative pathogens.
In our presentation we have shown x-ray from the 43 years old female patient who came in our clinic for prosthetic rehabilitation. After full medical history we found implant placement in other clinic in the capital town 6 months ago.
After revealing the situation we removed implants, made bone augmentation (the extraction site was grafted with an osteoconductive bone graft) and after another 6 month we made another prosthetic – implants solution.
In that way, they may contribute to greater physiologic bone loss caused by the reestablishment of biologic width or due to a foreign body reaction.
