- Guided bone regeneration is a reliable technique used to augment deficient alveolar bone defects. Soft tissue management is one of the several critical factors involved in the bone augmentation procedure. It is very dangerous to extend the lingual flap without creating tension owing to the presence of anatomical structures, particularly in the lower posterior region. Here, we report a method, where the lingual flap is advanced further using the mylohyoid muscle for primary wound closure in the augmented area (lower posterior edentulous region).
