The proposed alveoloplasty was simulated on the working casts, with removal of approximately 8-10 mm of vertical bone height.
The dense homogenous compact basal bone at the anterior region could have sustained damage during the alveoloplasty procedure, causing localised necrosis of the bone.

The second visit involved, extraction of all maxil- lary teeth and alveoloplasty procedure were per- formed under local anaesthesia.
Minor alveoloplasty is performed using local anaesthetic, but most ops require general anaesthesia.
However alveoloplasty should be performed only when there is a definite indication for the procedure as this procedure affects the quantity of denture foundation and therefore denture stability (4).
For the client taking a nonselective beta blocker, epinephrine should be limited to two or fewer cartridges of 1:100,000 epinephrine.(1) A study investigated the heart rate and rhythm in individuals with CVD undergoing minor oral surgery (tooth extraction, alveoloplasty, biopsy) under local anesthesia (lidocaine two percent with 1:100,000 epinephrine or bupivacaine 0.5 percent with 1:200,000 epinephrine).
