Abstract

Lateral ridge augmentation using guided bone regeneration technique is a frequently performed procedure that is used for restoring localized bone defects after extraction. In particular, demineralized bovine bone material and absorbable collagen membrane have been frequently used in adult patients before implant placement. However, the use of this procedure in adolescents before orthodontic tooth movement has rarely been reported. Herein, we present the cases of two young patients who underwent lateral ridge augmentation using the guided bone regeneration technique before implant placement and orthodontic tooth movement. Two patients in this case report showed successful clinical results with significant bone gain.
