HANSAmed Extraction Socket Management

Advanced Approach

Crown & bridge restoration

When placing a fixed prosthesis following tooth extraction, ridge preservation with Geistlich biomaterials helps to preserve the bone volume and achieve optimal soft tissue esthetics underneath the pontic1.

*Definition of an intact extraction socket varies among clinical experts and includes buccal bone defects of 0 to 50%..

Clinical case: Extraction socket management for crown and bridge restoration with Geistlich Bio-Oss® and Geistlich Mucograft® Seal

Case by Dr. Jeffrey Ganeles, Florida, USA

Maxillary central incisors scheduled for extraction due to recurrent endodontic infections. Implants placed in #7 and #10 two months prior.
Extraction sockets grafted with Geistlich Bio-Oss®.
Geistlich Mucograft® Seal is trimmed and placed over the occlusal surfaces as a socket seal. Provisional restoration held the pieces in place.
Vascularisation and integration of Geistlich Mucograft® Seal after 2 weeks.
Post-operative situation at 9 months with the final restoration.

Geistlich Bio-Oss® Collagen and Geistlich Mucograft® Seal show effective soft-tissue augmentation results in extraction sockets with a preserved buccal wall2.

Clinical case: Extraction socket management for crown and bridge restoration with a buccal wall defect using Geistlich Bio Oss Collagen® and Geistlich Bio-Gide®.

Case by Prof. Daniel Buser, Berne, Switzerland

Status following implant placement. Note the local bone defect between the 2 implants.
Bone anatomy was improved by contour augmentation using autogenous bone chips and Geistlich Bio-Oss® granules. In the pontic area Geistlich Bio-Oss Collagen® was used.
The augmentation material was covered by a Geistlich Bio-Gide® membrane in accordance with the GBR principle.
Successful outcome of contour augmentation in the pontic area, status at the 5-year follow-up.
The periapical 5-year radiograph documents successful contour augmentation in the pontic area.

GBR with Geistlich Biomaterials optimizes soft-tissue esthetics for implant-supported bridges. (Statement Prof. Buser, Switzerland)
