Prosthetic oral rehabilitation using dental implant has significantly increase because of the patient’s esthetic necessity and as predictable treatment. There is 40-60% of alveolar bone width and height loss in 2-3 years post-extraction. Dental implant mechanical stability depends on the successful of osseointegration and healthy soft tissue attachment over the abutment as a result of healing post-implantation. Inadequate bone volume at the time of implantation have been associated with decreased success rates and long term prognosis in implant dentistry. Guided bone regeneration (GBR) can be used with or without combination of bone graft to gain the volume of bone for implant placement.
