GBR and Esthetic Implant to Solve a Complex Case

Video from Dr. Roberto Rossi, Doctor of Dentistry at Genoa University.

In this case, the patient presented with a resorbed ugly looking upper incisor. The chief complaint was to try to re-establish function and esthetics. Tooth was extracted and the socket grafted with a xenograft. Upon healing and bone regeneration an implant was placed using guided surgery and soft tissue conditioned with a temporary crown. After soft tissue conditioning and ossointegration a digital impression was taken and a CAD/CAM restoration delivered to re-establish esthetics and function

    Nice case Roberto. What was that debridement burr? A 12 fluke finishing burr?
    Would you also consider the “ice cream come barrier” Tarnow technique and a facially positioned pedicle gingival graft to increase attached tissue?
    Nice job.
