The long-term success of a dental implant depends on having or creating an adequate amount of autogenous bone. An instrument is described that conserves the drilled bone during implant preparation, as well as during bone-block graft preparation. Compression of the autogenous bone is performed within the instrument. Also, a simple particulate bone harvest technique from the anterior mandible is offered. The value of a compacted cake of corticocancellous autogenous bone is discussed for dehiscence/fenestration defects as well as for sinus lift bone grafting.
