Dental rehabilitation after excision of an ossifying fibroma
Dr. Parit Ladani presents a case where implants were used in
the reconstruction of a young patient’s mandible
An 18-year-old male patient presented complaining of swelling over the right side of his lower jaw. This swelling was diagnosed as a benign ossifying fibroma. Surgery was planned for excision of the lesion and reconstruction of the area using an iliac crest cortico-cancellous bone graft. The bone graft was fixed to the defect using a reconstruction plate.
After 1 year, it was possible to see adequate bone formation at the defect side. The missing teeth were replaced using three Alpha Dent 5 mm x 13 mm classic implants (Alpha Dent Implants Ltd., London, United Kingdom).
