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.

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.
