Titanium Mesh: Placement and Removal

For many practitioners, the use of titanium mesh has provided excellent bone grafting results. There are of course certain procedures to follow to ensure a successful outcome. These two videos, provide a
quick overview to the surgical placement and removal of titanium mesh, for mandibular central incisors that had little bone. The idea was to augment the site in preparation for dental implant placement. The first video show the placement of the mesh, with BMP plus a PRF membrane, and closure obtained with a horizontal mattress suture. The second video shows the removal of the mesh and the placement of dental implants. Leave any comments below.

  1. Sir, what are the factors that help you decide between a graft and delayed implants after a few months as opposed to implants (with a few buccal threads exposed) followed by graft and mesh all in the same surgery.


    1. Yes Dr Anuj,

      It will work in single stage as far as the primary stability of the implant and the stability of the graft is maintained.

  2. What are common complications involved with Titanium mesh vs, GBR procedure with resorbable membrane especially regarding the mesh exposure? And how to manage if that happens?
