Management of a post-surgical complication in aesthetic zone
This case describes the management of a surgical complication after a tooth extraction due to a fracture and immediate implant insertion. A bone regeneration with resorbable membrane and autologous bone has allowed us to resolve this case.
Material and methods
After 8 days from the surgery the patient had a dehiscence with the implant screw outside the mucosa. We decided for a bone regeneration with a resorbable membrane and autologous bone and we treated the dehiscence with a suture 8-0. After six months we had a perfect soft tissue healing and so we were able to proceed the final rehabilitation with an all-ceramic crown. The inserption torque was over 35 Nc. The surgery was performed under local anesthesia.
No relevant complications were noted.
The bone regeneration with a resorbable membrane and autologouss bone has been the best solution for this complication: the alternative way was to remove the implant.
