- Purpose: Anterior ridge defect after tooth extraction results in unfavorable appearance. Ridge augmentation procedures should be preceded by careful surgical-prosthetic treatment planning, and various techniques can be used in anterior ridge augmentation. Materials and Methods: Three patients showed deformed ridges after tooth extraction. Three different techniques ; onlay-interpositional connective tissue graft; bovine hydroxyapatite graft with free connective tissue graft; bovine hydroxyapatite graft with resorbable collagen membrane following free connective tissue graft; were used for anterior ridge augmentation. Result: Soft tissue graft can be used in small amount of ridge defect, hard tissue graft combined with soft tissue graft can be used in large amount of ridge defect. After ridge augmentation, about three months of healing period, augmented tissue was stabilized. The final restoration was initiated after this healing period, and the tissue form was maintained stable. Conclusion: Careful diagnosis and surgical-prosthetic treatment planning with joint consultation prior to surgery should be performed in order to attain an optimal esthetic results.
