Surgical guide plays a crucial role to facilitate optimal positioning and angulation of implants. Nonlimiting designs guide only the position but not the angulation of implant placement. This article describes a simplified technique of fabricating a surgical guide to limit the freedom of implant placement. In addition, it also has an advantage of holding the flap away from the operating site by means of a flange extended onto the buccal slope, allowing adequate visibility during the osteotomy preparation.
