This clinical case report describes horizontal augmentation of a premaxillary alveolar segment with a piezosurgically retrieved symphyseal block graft followed by osseodensification-driven dental implant placement. The use of osseodensification facilitated plastic deformation of the low density grafted bone, thereby preserving the thickness of the augmented bone and increased primary stability of the implants. A yearlong follow up, using sequential radiographic (CBCT) and clinical evaluation, highlighted the satisfactory performance of the implant supported prosthesis in the augmented site.
