Right: Significant bone loss proximal and distal of implant 37.
Situation post surgical presentation and degranulation: strongly pronounced trough-shaped bone defect.
1 YEAR POST-OP
Stable soft tissue progression: small gingival recession, no signs of inflammation. No bleeding identified on probing, stable buccal bone situation with no recession.
