Smartbone® - clinical cases

Horizontal augmentation and filling of a bone gap with SmartBone blocks

SmartBone is elastic and sufficiently robust to be precisely handled and cut to the necessary shape and dimensions in order to best fit the specific patient bone defect. The material is not friable, hence it was easily fixed to the receiving bone, previously duly microcanalized, with osteosynthesis screws.*
Four months after grafting no evidence of serious adverse effects, such as inflammation, pain or dehiscence, was observed, and no implanted material was identified in the regenerated sites. New bone, thanks to its mechanical properties, consented to fix screws for dental implants, as is visible from the radiography, and to sustain histological sampling.*
