Bone defects are often secondary to alveolar disease removal. Creating a bone lid with piezosurgery is a valid method to preserve the alveolar bone. A careful and precise osteotomy associated with a firm placement of the bone lid in its original position enables better bone healing, thus allowing for the delayed insertion of dental implants at the operated site with no need for any bone augmentation procedures. The aim of this technical note is to present the application of the bone lid surgery in the posterior mandible before dental implant rehabilitation.

Abstract

Bone defects are often secondary to alveolar disease removal. Creating a bone lid with piezosurgery is a valid method to preserve the alveolar bone. A careful and precise osteotomy associated with a firm placement of the bone lid in its original position enables better bone healing, thus allowing for the delayed insertion of dental implants at the operated site with no need for any bone augmentation procedures. The aim of this technical note is to present the application of the bone lid surgery in the posterior mandible before dental implant rehabilitation.
