After extraction of the central incisor and granulation tissue removal, autologous bone chips were harvested from the adjacent site. Jason® membrane was applied and fixated at the buccal bone using titanium pins. Autologous bone was applied to the bone defect followed by a layer of small cerabone® granules. Jason® membrane was placed over the bone graft and pinned crestally. Final suturing of the flap was performed to achieve primary wound closure.
