Situation following flap preparation and implant insertion: dehiscence defect around the implant.
Augmentation of bone defect with THE Graft (left).
Covering of bone particle with resorbable collagen membrane (right).
4.5 MONTHS POST-OPERATIVE
Situation after re-entry:Excellent bony consolidation, complete restoration of bone contour around the implant.

Dehiscence-type defect around dental implant
(Case by Dr K. Fischer, Germany)
Dehiscence defect around bone-level implant.
Augmentation with xenograft bone.
Coverage of bone graft material with SMARTBRANE –
the membrane can easily be positioned and adapts ideally to the defect geometry.
Optimal initial healing pattern: no signs of irritation.
5 MONTHS POST-OPERATIVE
Re-entry: Perfectly regenerated buccal bone profile without signs of volume loss both buccally and crestally.
