Autogenous bone graft after tenting?

Last Updated October 24, 2019

I posted a tenting case question a couple months ago (See: Tenting screws at grafting site: advice?) and it did fine so this is a follow up. I gained 3mm height and I want to gain another 5mm. The patient is now 5 months into healing and I now want to place a block graft. I have used 5mm block bovine grafts in the past but I am on board with an autogenous block graft. I am considering the tuberosity area of cortical and D4 as a block but I would rather have D2. Would a one-piece cortical bone and Ti-PTFE (see: Titanium Reinforced PTFE Membranes) provide what I need?
