Complete prosthetic rehabilitation using implants require the presence of adequate dimensions of alveolar bone. Ridge augmentation procedures include the use of guided bone regeneration (GBR) procedures where the barrier membrane provides cell occlusion and space for the regenerating tissues. Alloderm GBR has been introduced for the purpose of augmenting bone and has been postulated to have the additionally ability to integrate into soft tissues. Twenty-two patients with Siebert's class I ridge deficiency were treated with BioOss and Alloderm GBR and followed up for a period of nine months. Significant increase in ridge dimensions of both hard and soft tissues were observed at six months period itself, suggesting that it as an effective method of augmenting deficient ridges.
