The bone regeneration in field of dentistry has become a topic of great interest, especially in cases where it determines a constraint to the implant reahabilitation.
Continuing research, new materials the rising expectations of the patient are the main forces that drive us to seek solutions that would enable to formulate more predictable and less invasive rehabilitation plans.
The BOXTECHNIQUE, invented by Dr. Andrea Menoni in 2008, is a new prosthetically and aesthetically guided bone regenerative technique that uses only absorbable materials which are processed naturally by the body.
This revolutionary method does not require the use of patient’s autologous bone in the regeneration process, thus minimizing the surgical sessions.
The BOXTECHNIQUE is a regenerative technique able to convert the bone volume defect into a container (the “box”) which can be easily filled by the chosen filler material (Allograft or Xenograft); it allows the bone regeneration in the three space dimensions, avoids bone grafting to the patient and minimizes the surgical sessions.
The aim of BOXTECHNIQUE is the “restitutio ad integrum”, that is to fully restore the bone to its original condition not only functionally but also aesthetically.
The guide line of this innovative technique is to be prosthetically and aesthetically guided.
