Bone graft of the day

This patient broke off his upper right first bicuspid tooth to the gum line. I extracted the root and placed a bone graft to preserve the alveolar ridge. Following healing we will place an implant, or I might make a fixed bridge for the missing tooth space. He is using a flipper partial denture now during the healing phase so he can smile and have a tooth.
