[Diagnostic / Planning]  27 implant supported crown; need augmentation?

f66 wants 27 replaced, minimal bone present for implant supported crown, 4.3 x 10mm implant overlayed on image for reference.  augmentation required?  sinus and/or lateral? block?  or just place with no augmentation and leave for longer integration?

Hi Terry

Thanks for posting.  I'd recommend a sticky bone buccal graft at the same time as fixture placement.

Alternatively, I would recommend a staged approach to graft buccal bone first to thicken out the ridge first.

Hope that helps.
