How to treat small buccal concavity/deficiency?

Last Updated January 24, 2019

I am wondering what your procedure is for grafting small buccal depressions after implant placement. Attached are two photographs from different cases. Both have enough bone to place an appropriate implant, but I would like to graft the buccal area. I normally use DynaBlast and HeliTape, ( short lasting) membranes for socket grafting. Would these materials be sufficient? Do you also normally decoritcate the area? Finally, do you really have to release the flap to get primary closure?
Thanks in advance.
