Advanced approach - Bridge restoration

When placing a prosthetic bridge after tooth extraction, ridge preservation with Geistlich biomaterials helps to preserve the bone volume and achieve optimal soft-tissue aesthetics under the pontic1.

Clinical case: Bridge placement with preserved buccal bone wall.

Geistlich Bio-Oss® Collagen and Geistlich Mucograft® Seal show effective soft-tissue augmentation results in extraction sockets with a preserved buccal wall2.

Clinical case: Bridge placement with defect buccal bone wall using Geistlich Bio-Oss® Collagen and Geistlich Bio-Gide®.

GBR with Geistlich Biomaterials optimises soft-tissue aesthetics for implant-supported bridges. (Statement Prof. Buser, Switzerland)
