Considerations in Tooth Replacement with Thin Bone and Soft Tissue Biotype in the Lower Anterior Segment
Patient with advanced gingival recession #24 and #26 and missing #25. CBCT shows severe thin bone biotype in the anterior mandible. #24 and 26 are guarded but extractions will result in severe 3-D defect. What are your considerations in managing this patient? Extractions and 3-D bone grafting? Gingival graft to correct recession and a restorative solution to replacement of the missing tooth?
