Rehabilitation of edentulous site in the maxillary anterior area is always associated with esthetic consideration as a primary factor, especially in female patients. Simultaneously, sufficient bone quantity and quality is required for survival of endosseous implant. Hence, it is prudent to do ridge augmentation for a horizontal defect in the anterior maxillary area. Insufficient bone volume can be augmented by different methods, including particulate and block grafting materials, guided bone regeneration with or without growth and differentiation factors, ridge splitting, and expansion and distraction osteogenesis, either alone or in combination. These techniques may be used for horizontal/vertical ridge augmentation, socket preservation, and sinus augmentation. Here, we present a case of horizontal ridge augmentation achieved with allograft material and staged implant placement.
