A patient who lost implants by inflammation wanted to have implants again. However, he lost not only implants, but also some amount of bone which had supported the former implants. Guided Bone Regeneration surgery made a chance to accept the next implants. The process was challenging and time consuming, The surgery requires a technique called release incision to close flaps of gum after bone graft packing to bone loss area. The technique was issued in a dental journal by an Italian dentist. The idea has been helping many dentists and patients in the world. Since the crowns setting, it has had no problems so far.
(Fig.1) A cross section of CT before treatment. Concave shape means bone loss caused by inflammation around the former implant.

(Fig.3) 5 years after the crown setting on the implant. It has been stable so far.

(Fig.9) The bone graft was covered by non-resorbable membrane.

(Fig.12) After removing the membrane, the bone loss area was filled with new bone. Compare with Fig. 7.
