Aggressive periodontitis is the disease affecting the periodontium, leading to rapid attachment and alveolar bone loss in an otherwise systemically healthy individual. The rate of periodontal connective tissue and alveolar bone breakdown is further influenced by hereditary, genetic, and familial compounding factors. This case report highlights the sequential treatment strategy employed to achieve an esthetic and functioning dentition for an aggressive periodontitis patient, involving stabilization of the periodontal condition and preprosthetic site preparation by horizontal ridge augmentation using autogenous mandibular block bone grafting procedure.
