Background: The aim of the present study is to evaluate clinical success of bone augmentation using mandibular bone block obtained from symphysis region fixed by titanium pins to augment a single tooth site in maxillary anterior region. Method: Ten systemically healthy patients with age range of 22 to 30 years having edentulous area with single tooth ridge deformity in maxillary anterior region were treated by using ridge augmentation procedure by using autogenous bone graft. Result: A mean gain of buccolingual ridge width was 2.9 mm, while apico coronal gain was 2.1 mm was observed at 6 months post-operatively. Conclusion: The present case series study indicates successful reconstruction of both horizontal & vertical ridge defect using mandibular bone block at the site of single implant placement.
