Clinical case description:

Ramal Bone Graft for Congenitally Missing Maxillary Lateral Incisor

This is a young patient with a congenitally missing incisor that has high aesthetic concerns and has had multiple failed surgical attempts. The goals for this patient are to reconstruct the osseous foundation and provide a matrix for improvement with the overlying soft-tissue. There has been significant gain in bony architecture and development of soft-tissue contours at a site that was extremely deficient of structure to begin with. Goal was to identify the problem, establish a sequenced plan and execute with equal attention to hard and soft-tissue augmentation and manipulation.
