Decompression technique – A modified approach for lateral alveolar ridge augmentation

This case report shows a  particular technique that can increase the mucosal and peri‐implant bone thickness, prevent compression around implant neck, and obtain proper space for the following prosthetic treatment with an adequate emergence profile.
Implant placement with simultaneous guided bone regeneration with a mix of autogenous and allogenic grafting material (maxgraft®), simultaneous soft tissue thickening with mucoderm® and submerged healing abutment.
Decompression technique enables increase in bone volume by reducing compression at the implant collar and thickening of soft tissue, simultaneously with implant placement.
