Reconstruction of Atrophied Posterior Mandible with an Inlay Technique and Allograft Block: Technical Description and Histologic Case Reports
Vittorio Checchi, DDS, PhD/Annalisa Mazzoni, DDS, PhD/Giovanni Zucchelli, DDS, PhD/Lorenzo Breschi, DDS, PhD/Pietro Felice, MD, DDS, PhD

This article presents a technical description of the inlay technique performed with an allograft block in the reconstruction of a severely atrophic posterior mandible. The use of inlay grafts provides a relatively predictable approach for vertical augmentation of the posterior mandible. In this report, use of bone allograft for reconstruction allowed for implant rehabilitation in severely resorbed sites. The article includes a histologic case series of five patients treated with the same grafting procedure and rehabilitated with dental implants 2 months after placement of the graft. The histologic analysis showed large amounts of newly formed bone in tight connection with the allograft and large marrow spaces with intense cellular activity and the presence of osteocytes.
