IMMEDIATE IMPLANT PLACEMENT BY USING BONE-ALBUMIN ALLOGRAFT AND CONCENTRATED GROWTH FACTORS (CGFS): PRELIMINARY RESULTS OF A PILOT STUDY
Case report, 31 - 40Tag this article
The provision of structural base and soft tissue support in dental implantology still remains a complex task. In the present study a new technique was introduced, which employs Bone-Albumin allograft and Concentrated Growth Factors (CGFs) integrated in a 1-stage immediate implant placement. The allograft is transformed from cubic to cylindrical shape by means of bone cutting forceps, followed by central osteotomy for screwing the implant within the allograft. The implant/graft combination promotes graft union, increases dental stability and minimizes graft resorption. The successful outcome of the proposed technique is evaluated by means of clinical and radiographic data. In conclusion, the proposed method provides a successful immediate dental implantation in terms of osseo-integration, stability and aesthetic results.
KEY WORDS: bone-albumin allograft, concentrated growth factors, immediate implant placement.
