When the extraction site has insufficient bone height or volume for an implantation, an autogenous tooth bone block for a socket reconstruction and bone graft can be implemented. In these case studies, we obtained outstanding treatment outcomes using autogenous tooth bone block reconstructing extracted socket and ridge augmentation. This study presents its clinical and radiological findings together with reviews of related literature.
