The height of the interdental septum was observed and classified into 4 categories: type I: height of the interdental septum close to normality (<25% ofbone resorption); type II: height of the interdental septum equal to or greater than 3/4 of the normal height (25% [less than or equal to] bone resorption < 50%); type III: height of the interdental septum less than 3/4 of the normal height (50% [less than or equal to] bone resorption < 75%); and type IV: bonegraft failure with no continuous bony bridge across the cleft (bone resorption > 75%).
[27] included a few modifications by classifying grafts as either E (excellent; normal height of the interdental septum), G (good; bony septum with minimal disability), R (regular; graft with enough bone for the canine eruption, but tooth movement is deficient or a marginal defect greater than 25% of root length is present), B (bad; bone deficiency in the nasal aspect prevents tooth movement), or F (failure; complete resorption of the bone graft).
