Abstract: The management of the severely atrophic maxilla requires special considerations because of the unfavorable biomechanics, surgical, prosthetics and esthetics factors. Therefore, autogenous grafts represent the treatment of choice prior to any implant restorations of such cases. This report presents one case treated in this manner, enabled reconstruction without opening the maxillary sinus or nasal floor. It also restored the vertical and sagittal dimensions of the jaws. Thirty-six months after prosthetic rehabilitation there has been no complication. The postoperative pain from the donor site was minimal and there was no gait deformity observed. The L shaped bone only technique has been found to be a safe, well tolerated procedure with which an implant-retained overdenture was provided with great patient satisfaction.
