I will be placing two bone block grafts in the area of 6-11 on an edentulous patient. The blocks will be placed 2-3 mm below the alveolar crest. Previously when doing this, I shell off the entire buccal flange from the patient’s denture during healing. Does anyone out there have experience with relieving the denture and placing a soft liner instead of removing the denture flange?
