Scope: To outline the importance of autogenic bone graft addition for correcting bone defects in the frontal and lateral maxillary area, and for achieving outstanding esthetic results in cases of large bone defects. Materials and method: A total number of 478 argumentations has been performed in the implantology and dental clinic of the Emergency Military Hospital Sibiu between 2009 and 2013. Results and discussion: The transversal rehabilitation techniques of frontal maxillary ridges, representing 57.2% of all addressed cases, were the most frequent ones, justifying the fact that the frontal maxillary area, aesthetically sensitive, is of special attention for both patients and
specialists. Conclusions: In relation with the magnitude of alveolar bone transversal resorption and soft tissue anatomy, surgical procedures are required for bone addition, for obtaining acceptable aesthetic and functional results. To this end, evaluation of defects and systematization of the suitable addition techniques have been carried out.
