Innovative solution for regenerating complex alveolar bone defects by taking advantage of CBCT data combined with 3-D printing technology
Each titanium scaffold is custom-made for a precision fit that accurately reflects the specific patient data provided. Time-consuming impressions, cutting, shaping and adapting are no longer necessary and sharp edges from cutting conventional meshes are entirely eliminated.
Once Yxoss CBR® is placed and the augmentation is performed according to the principles of guided bone regeneration, the flap can be mobilized by a periosteal releasing incision deep in the vestibular area. This will allow tension-free flap closure.
This poncho technique is preferred in pronounced vertical defects. After incision, preparation of a mucoperiosteal flap, debridement of scar tissue, and exposure of the defect is conducted. A passive tension-free fit of the Yxoss CBR® is then ensured.
