This case report describes an inlay augmentation procedure with resorbable bone plates and fixation screws in a case of vertical atrophy of the anterior mandible. After 3 months from the surgery, vertical bone height augmentation was evaluated, and at the time of implant insertion, core biopsies from the grafted area were taken. Moreover, 8 months after the start of prosthetic loading, radiographic assessments showed no pathological signs. This case report shows that the effectiveness of resorbable plates during the graft healing process is similar to that of titanium plates

Abstract

This case report describes an inlay augmentation procedure with resorbable bone plates and fixation screws in a case of vertical atrophy of the anterior mandible. After 3 months from the surgery, vertical bone height augmentation was evaluated, and at the time of implant insertion, core biopsies from the grafted area were taken. Moreover, 8 months after the start of prosthetic loading, radiographic assessments showed no pathological signs. This case report shows that the effectiveness of resorbable plates during the graft healing process is similar to that of titanium plates
