  1. Please explain why bicuspid tooth with plus three mobility was left in place. Tooth is possible source of infection and not restorable. An easy way to ruin a very nice procedure.

  2. On your scan there was a healthy posterior molar- where did it go?
    And mobility of premolar is questionable – needs explanation. You almost extracted it with your 15 blade. That’s not secondary occlusal trauma.
    Window is too small- if there’s no teeth – make a bigger window- easier membrane elevation and faster surgery.
    If you are gonna present cases- better make sure you have it together-
    Sorry – satisfactory execution but questionable presentation.
