Clinical case description:
A 35-year female patient presented with subgingival caries on tooth
25. After atraumatic extraction of the aforementioned tooth, the
socket was filled with Geistlich Bio-Oss® Collagen and its entrance was covered
by a Geistlich Mucograft® Seal. The socket healed uneventfully.
After 5 months, the area was reentried, and a 4.1 diameter
Straumann bone level implant was inserted in place.
After 3 months later, a second stage surgery was performed where
the sucessful result of the osseointegration procedure was confirmed
both clinically and radiographically.
The prosthetic rehabilitation which followed included a screw-retained
metal ceramic crown, delivered by Dr. Paris Ravanis, Prosthodontist
in Athens, Greece.
