Stage IV stomatitis, severely advanced periodontal disease. Pathological pockets greater than 3 mm, multiple periapical lesions, maxillary osteitis with vertical and horizontal bone recession, vertical gingival recession, exposed tooth roots, exposed furcation, purulent discharge from pathological pockets. Indication for extraction of almost all maxillary teeth.
1. Photo taken before the surgery.
The teeth were extracted, alveolar curettage was performed and the FlexiOss®Vet preparation was introduced into the alveoli on the right side, then the site was closed tightly with a mucosal flap. The teeth on the left side were protected by inserting a collagen sponge.
After 21 days, the alveoli on the right side show features of bone tissue presence and bone remodelling without alveolar bone atrophy. On the left side, there are no visible radiographic features of bone tissue, raising the suspicion that the alveolus has been filled with granulation tissue.
2. Photo taken 3 weeks after surgery.
