The Rib Roast Technique TM*
*Following tooth loss, it is common for there to be a deficiency in the hard and soft tissue of the jaw. This inadequacy must be addressed if optimal aesthetics are to be achieved. Traditional techniques available to regenerate deficiencies in bone require the use of non-resorbable materials, such as titanium mesh, bone tacks and screws, and Teflon. The use of these materials, while generally safe, are prone to complications: damage to adjacent healthy teeth, premature exposure, and increased risk of infection. They also require a secondary procedure for removal.
Dr. Fien is an expert provider, lecturer, and instructor of the Rib Roast Technique, which utilizes a biologically resorbable suture material to perform the same function as the aforementioned tacks and screws. By providing stability to our bone grafts, these sutures allow us to use all bio-absorbable grafting materials in a predictable fashion for the finest results.
