Bone grafting techniques often constitute the mainstay of treatment used in the restoration of the atrophic maxillary bone before the placement of dental implants. Bone grafting can be achieved with various types of grafting materials; natural or synthetic, though, autogenous bone grafts are still considered the gold standard because of their osteogenic, osteoinductive and osteoconductive properties. The present case report describes the case of a 35-year-old female patient who presented with missing right maxillary central incisor secondary to trauma. Clinical and radiographic examination revealed a severe bone defect requiring a bone augmentation procedure. Hence, guided bone regeneration of the maxillary defect was planned with simultaneous placement of endosseous implant. The present case report, thus, demonstrates the successful use of vertical and horizontal bone augmentation procedures conducted with the help of guided tissue regeneration and simultaneous endosseous implant placement.
