Abstract

Aim

The purpose of this report is to present the use of different soft tissue grafting procedures for surgical ridge augmentation.

Background

Multiple augmentative procedures may be indicated for the esthetic reconstruction of edentulous alveolar ridge deformities due to unpredictable shrinkage of augmented tissues.

Report

A 38-year-old woman with a moderate Class III alveolar ridge defect received periodontal plastic surgery treatment using a combined onlay-interpositional graft procedure and a subepithelial connective tissue graft.

Summary

This case illustrates the aesthetic reconstruction of a moderate alveolar ridge defect using a twostep approach.

Clinical Significance

Using different soft tissue grafting procedures might be helpful in planning and treating moderate alveolar ridge defects. The time for remodelling of the augmented tissues needs to be respected before the final prosthesis is placed.
