Ben Lashley posted a case with missing palatal bone in the anterior maxilla.
I have solved some of these cases simply with cortico-cancellous tuberosity bone block, wedged into the defect. Apically tuberosity bone chips were grafted.

This is beautifully performed by an Xpert Master. Great use of Bone from Tuberosity and Palatal Pedicle Graft. How do you stabilize the BG? Just wedge it to surrounding walls? Thanks for sharing. regards Maurice

Thank you, Maurice! In majority of cases it is enough to wedge the tuberosity bone block. Sometimes one or two screws are necessary to stabilize the graft: if the graft is smaller than defect or not shaped properly. But mostly it is nicely wedged simply with a finger pressure. In this case, the palatal granulation tissue is left pediculated and utilized for the wound closure.
Best regards
