Successful rehabilitation of severely atrophic, short-span edentulous ridges in esthetic regions can seldom be done without some form of vertical ridge augmentation (VRA). The best available evidence shows that guided bone regeneration procedures may present a very predictable option with reduced potential for complications compared to alternative options. The present case series presents a novel technique to achieve predictable VRA with a low complication rate using tenting screws and cross-linked resorbable membranes. A total of 10 patients (5 men, 5 women) with severe vertical defects in the esthetic zone participated in this study. Following a mean healing time of 9.3 months, the mean defect resolution was 80%, with a mean vertical bone gain of 6.2 ± 1.61 mm. Only one case presented with reduced defect resolution (50%); however, the bone gain for this case was 6 mm.
