PURPOSE: An adequate bone volume for complete circumferential coverage of the implants is very important for obtaining a long-term success of oral implants. To avoid these problems various membranes and biomaterials were used, but soft tissue pressure could cause a membrane collapse toward the defect. The present work describes a ridge augmentation with titanium mesh shaped by adapting it to a bone defect in aesthetic areas. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Three patients with alveolar crest defects received three implants (Bone System, Milano, Italy) and the defects were filled with bone chips. The defects were covered with a titanium micromesh above which was positioned a resorbable membrane (Biogide, Geistlich, Wohlhusen, Switzerland). RESULTS: At the re-entry procedure the titanium micromesh appeared to be surrounded by a dense connective tissue with no clinical signs of inflammation. Clinically in all patients, no residual bone defects were observed, and a significant increase of the alveolar width or height was found.

Abstract

PURPOSE: An adequate bone volume for complete circumferential coverage of the implants is very important for obtaining a long-term success of oral implants. To avoid these problems various membranes and biomaterials were used, but soft tissue pressure could cause a membrane collapse toward the defect. The present work describes a ridge augmentation with titanium mesh shaped by adapting it to a bone defect in aesthetic areas. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Three patients with alveolar crest defects received three implants (Bone System, Milano, Italy) and the defects were filled with bone chips. The defects were covered with a titanium micromesh above which was positioned a resorbable membrane (Biogide, Geistlich, Wohlhusen, Switzerland). RESULTS: At the re-entry procedure the titanium micromesh appeared to be surrounded by a dense connective tissue with no clinical signs of inflammation. Clinically in all patients, no residual bone defects were observed, and a significant increase of the alveolar width or height was found.
