Vertical Augmentation With Osteon at Dental Implant Placement

Time Perspective: Prospective
|Official Title:||An Evaluation of Vertical Augmentation of Alveolar Bone With Osteon at Dental Implant Placement|
- The success of dental implants in alveolar bone augmented in the vertical direction with Osteon [ Time Frame: 3 years ]The implants will be deemed successful at each time point if the radiographic bone level remains at 2 mm above the level of the implant, i.e. at the same height as when placed. Given that we know precisely the dimensions of the abutments placed in the implant, this provides the necessary calibration in order to undertake this assessment. If the bone level is lost, the procedure will be deemed to have failed.

Patients requiring dental implants with deficient alveolar bone height
Device: Osteon bone graft
Osteon bone substitute placed to a height of 2 mm above the top of the dental implant
• To determine the success of dental implants in alveolar bone augmented in the vertical direction with Osteon.
Secondary Objectives • To determine the long term success of dental implants in this augmented bone.
• Radiographically assessed vertical height of alveolar ridge formation following Osteon augmentation.
