In-Situ Onlay Grafting Combined with Titanium Mesh for Three-Dimensional Reconstruction of the Anterior Maxillary Ridge
Wang, Tianlu / Wu, Qingqing / Qu, Yili / Gong, Ping / Yu, Haiyang / Man, Yi
Reconstruction of anterior maxillary ridge defects involving both horizontal and vertical dimensions has always been a challenge. This case report proposes a novel approach to reconstruct labial bony walls with onlay bone blocks harvested in situ held by titanium mesh covered with concentrated growth factor. Favorable outcomes were shown because of better space maintenance and nutrition supply.
