Marco Ronda, MD, DDS/Claudio Stacchi, DDS, MSc

DOI: 10.11607/prd.2232

In the posterior mandible, in particular, the use of conventional periosteal incisions is not always sufficient for a proper buccal flap passivation, as they are often limited by anatomical factors. This article reports a series of 76 consecutive cases of vertical guided bone regeneration in the posterior mandible introducing a novel surgical technique to enhance the coronal advancement of the buccal flap in a safe and predictable way.
