French term or phrase: balcon vestibulaire
Hello everyone,
I am seekng your opinion on the term 'balcon vestibulaire'. The context is complete oral rehabilitation after the extraction of multiple teeth, placement of implants and prosthetic construction.
The term appears in the following phrase which is the fourth part of the procedure after guided bone regeneration:
On note la présence d’un balcon vestibulaire signant une augmentation osseuse satisfaisante.

Any help with this term would be much appreciated.
Best wishes!
