Abstract

Patients with highly atrophied jaws pose a serious clinical problem for construction of removal denture or surgical placement of implant. They sometime are in need of undergoing delicate surgical interventions for gaining vertical bone height with/without sinus lift. It requires expensive bone graft substitutes and barrier membranes in the hand of an expert. A long period of time for bone healing is an additional enigma. After the jaws are made ready, the implants are surgically inserted into the bone and a period of another 4-6 months waiting is inevitable. The long waiting period and the expenses for adjuvant surgical treatments are not appreciated by the patients. The present article deals with a patient with highly atrophied jaws for full mouth rehabilitation with basal and cortical implants.

Keywords: Jaw atrophy, Bone augmentation, Cortical implants, Full mouth rehabilitation, Strategic implantology.
