Thin buccal bone has a risk of thread exposure, and
placement of a graft is the mainline of treatment for thread exposure. However,
this process takes time as the patient is expected to wait for healing to occur
before the implant can be placed. To overcome the waiting period, this study
views a different method. This study examines the use of guided bone regeneration
on the day of implant placement on buccal bone where thread exposure occurs.
This process has the advantage of avoiding the patient to go through multiple
operations till receiving the final prosthetic treatment, also saving time and
money for both the patient and the practitioner.
