Figure 4: Bone graft posterior to laterally positioned flap. (a) Autologous chin bone graft. (b) Mixture of autograft and xenograft. (c) Bone graft placement at the site of the cleft. (d) Mucogingival tissue completely and continuously covering the bone graft. Notice how the relaxing incision is distant from the site where the bone graft has been placed. (e) Radiographic control of the grafted site at 2 months, where the alveolar remodeling becomes evident, with suitable height of the bone crest and periodontal ligament space in the teeth adjacent to the cleft
