Abstract

Implant insertion into an atrophic knife-edge ridge with non-simultaneous extraction of anterior and posterior teeth is challenging; this is why bone regeneration before implant placement is of great importance. One of the best sources for reconstruction is an intraoral autogenous bone graft. A composite bone graft is a combination of autogenic bone and mucosal flap that provides adequate blood supply and fixation compared to conventional (from the mandibular symphysis or ramus) and extraoral bone grafts.
