The success of oral restorations supported by dental implants in regenerated bone is well documented, as is the use of bone grafts to augment deficient alveolar bone. This article describes the bone-retention wedge graft, which may be useful for increasing the primary stability of dental implants, preserving bone in postextraction sockets, and covering exposed implant threads.

    Maxillary alveolar atrophy often limits the placement of dental implants. The bone splitting and bone widening by osteotome technique is a more obvious method for the immediate placement of implants in those cases in which the dimensions of the residual ridge are reduced by only a small degree....
