The challenging concept of "reconstructive esthetic implant dentistry," and its prime goal of achieving a functional and esthetically pleasing rehabilitation of the mouth, has finally reached where the nature could be mimicked. Commonly confronted issues of insufficient bone volume and thread exposure warrant bone augmentative procedures. Bone reconstruction should restore bone volume in both horizontal and vertical directions. Besides autogenous grafts being the golden standard of augmentation, various bone substitutes have been used with promising results. The main rationale in guided bone regeneration (GBR) techniques is the creation of space for matrix producing cells if significant volumes of bone are to be achieved. This case report highlights the technique of using allograft and alloderm on the principles of GBR technique with satisfactory clinical results.
