Introduction/Context/Diagnosis

This is a clinical case demonstrating preparation of bone graft site and bone grafting to improve the defect in the buccal plate. Also, shaping of soft tissues before placing the implants.

Methods/Treatment Plan

Site preparation for bone graft by removing the existing sealer button that is detrimental for long term prognosis of the implant. After healing of the site for about a month, reopening it and placing cancellous bone graft to cover the defect. Allowed the site to heal for about 6 months. Placed appropriate site development placed implant #8. Shaped the soft tissue using a temporary crown.

Results/Outcome

Increased in bucco-lingual diameter of the bone after graft placement. This increased horizontal width facilitated the placement of implant.

Significance/Conclusions

Horizontal bone augmentation using cancellous bone graft.

Avoided the veneer surgery that required a donor site.

Shaping of soft tissues in order to increase the esthetic outcomes.
