Rehabilitation with dental implants is a treatment that has high success rate in rehabilitation of partially or totally edentulous patients. Periodontal diseases, systemic diseases, trauma, tumours, and tooth loss can lead to decrease bone volume and these bone defects limit the correct positioning of implant. Soft tissue augmentation at implant site improves peri implant health, esthetics and marginal bone level stability. The present case was done to evaluate results of dental implant placement in edentulous ridges treated with a collagen membrane having ossifying properties for horizontal augmentation of the ridge volume.
