Abstract

Background: Soft-tissue treatment techniques for alveolar ridge augmentation include connective tissue grafts, with or without epithelial collar, and roll techniques. Sometimes, there are postoperative complications. Purpose: To describe a case for a female patient who underwent an  alveolar ridge augmentation and developed an exostosis. Case description: A 35-year-old female patient underwent an alveolar ridge augmentation procedure through a pocket technique in the upper right central incisor. A connective tissue graft without epithelial collar from the palate was transplanted and covered with the flap. Seven years later the patient returned with an exostosis in the buccal area of the treated tooth that affected her aesthetically. An osteoplasty was performed and a bone biopsy was taken, whose histopathological analysis showed a bone-compatible tissue. Conclusion: Exostosis is an unusual postoperative complication in cases of alveolar ridge augmentation that can be successfully treated. More research is necessary about such complications.
