Bone Augmentation in Extraction Site with Buccal Plate Deficiency

This case involves bone augmentation in an extraction site with buccal plate deficiency. Before the extraction, a vertical incision was performed 2mm into the mobile mucosa. The flap was then reflected and complete debridement was done. Bond Apatite cement was used to augment the site and the flap was closed with tension directly above the cement for maximal closure. During closure up to 3 mm of exposure is acceptable, however not more than that. Exposure over 3 mm might lead to cement wash out .Soft tissue healing can be seen in the follow-up pictures, while re-entry took place 12 weeks post-op,
