Geometry of the bone present can make implant placement challenging. This can be especially true in the anterior, where the angle of the ridge requires a different trajectory than that of the prosthetic axis that will be used during restoration.1 Both the maxillary and mandibular ridge tip to the facial aspect, requiring implant placement that is not vertical in position.

This may vary from socket preservation following extraction, repair of bone loss at the furcation, filling voids between the socket walls and implant when immediate implants are planned, sinus augmentation to treatment of exposed implant threads. These are managed by use of osseous particles, which can be allografts, autografts, xenografts or even synthetic materials.
