C9_GBR_01
A 53-year-old female patient had a fixed bridge on site 23-26 and presented with secondary caries on #26.
C9_GBR_02
The treatment plan provided for a 8-week period to allow the extraction socket to heal.

C9_GBR_03
Buccal view of the edentulous narrow ridge 8 months after the extraction.

C9_GBR_04
Extremely narrow ridge was found. The implant-beds were prepared after reduction of the alveolar ridge.

C9_GBR_05
The sinus floor on site 26 was augmented by the crestal approach using SCA kit.

C9_GBR_06
3.5X13mm and 4.5X10mm implants were placed on site 24 and 25 respectively. CMI fixation with 35Ncm of initial stability was achieved on #26 through inferior cortical fixation. A severe buccal dehiscence was present on site 24.

C9_GBR_07
1mm CTi-spacers were placed on site 24 and 25.

C9_GBR_08
A combination of autogenous bone and allograft was applied to the defect. E2 type of CTi-mem was placed and 3 point fixation was made using two cover screws and one fixing screw over the graft.

C9_GBR_09
A sheet of Collatape was placed over the CTi-mem.

C9_GBR_10
The flap was secured with horizontal mattress and interrupted technique.

C9_GBR_11
Postoperative radiographic view.

C9_GBR_12
Incision line has healed 2 weeks after the surgery.

C9_GBR_13
No CTi-mem exposure was observed at 16 weeks after the surgery. It would be due to the ideal fixation of the CTi-mem.

C9_GBR_14
4 months later, CTi-mem was uncovered and it was verified that new bone formation has been made on the buccal and the lingual side.

C9_GBR_15
Complete bone regeneration was observed following the spacer removal.

C9_GBR_16
Healing abutments are in place. The flap was apically positioned to achieve keratinized gingiva.

C9_GBR_17
Panoramic radiograph taken after stage Ⅱ surgery.

C9_GBR_18
Impression was made a month after stage Ⅱ surgery.

C9_GBR_19
Cemented abutments in place.

C9_GBR_20
A 3 unit cement retained PFM FPD was delivered.

This patient presented with extremely narrow ridge after the extraction socket of #26 was allowed to heal for 8 weeks. A 3 unit cement retained PFM FPD was delivered 4 months after GBR was conducted using titanium mesh.
