Lack of sufficient bone to place an implant in a functionally and esthetically appropriate position is a common problem, especially in the upper anterior jaw. A narrow edentulous alveolar ridge, less than 5 mm buccopalatally, poses a problem for implant supported restorations. This article presents a case where the width of the alveolar ridge crest being only 4mm buccopalatally necessitated a widening technique using alveolar ridge splitting and immediate implant placement. This technique seems to be reliable and simple with little morbidity, and satisfactory rehabilitation. Survival and the success of implants placed with this technique were consistent with those placed in non-reconstructed bone.
