Ridge Rehabilitation & Large Bone Defects Due to Root Fractures

50 year old female, non smoking, with a minor heart condition. The patient came with mobile bridge over fractured tooth #46 (30), missing tooth #47 (31), tooth #44 (28) with mobile roots and restoration almost to the height of bone. The distal abutment of the old bridge was fractured and broken for a long period of time due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The anterior abutment is mobile and the whole bridge is mobile. The ridge of bone is thin, as we shall see. The plan was done in stages.

    Hi Dr. Gelman,
    Please see Dr. Rudberg’s response:
    The implants and ridge were covered by bond Apetit mainly from the buccal because it was a thin site, not suitable for a mollar. 4 months later, I took an x-ray , figured their position and reached them from the occlusion side,after analgesia, of course. Sometimes one has to clear some material from above the implants, but it’s a good way to ensure high level of bone around them.
