The management of implants in the aesthetic zone remains a clinical challenge. Major ridge augmentation surgery involves high morbidity and long treatment times for the patient and is technique-sensitive for the clinician. Implants can be placed 6 to 8 weeks after extraction, once the soft tissue has healed. At the time of early implant placement in the aesthetic zone, bone augmentation is indicated to treat the common bone deficiency on the buccal and occlusal side of the implant. A novel and simple technique will be presented (L-Shape Technique) where a xenograft mixed with collagen will be trimmed into an L-Shape and positioned simultaneous to the the implant, on its buccal and occlusal side. This technique provides proper stability for the bone graft, resulting in healthy and esthetic hard and soft peri-implant tissues.
