Placing an Implant with Thin Buccal Cortex?

Last Updated April 12, 2019
Reviewed By:  Dr. Peter Hunt

I am a Post graduate student. This will be my first implant placement case. The patient extracted his tooth 36 1 year back. Now we planned for an implant. In the CBCT, I can see the buccal cortical plate is very thin up to 3.5mm. Lingual cortex and platform width is good. Can we place an implant? Require grafting? What your thoughts?
