HERNANDEZ GOYENAGA, Rodolfo  and  VARGAS MARTINEZ, Jairo. Iliac crest graft with fifixed implant rehabilitation. Odontología Vital [online]. 2017, n.26, pp.79-87. ISSN 1659-0775.

The selection of the denture for a patient are determined from the local conditions anatomical/morphological and general factors related to the patient. In general more implants are requiered for the support of a fixed complete denture. Besides in many cases this fixed denture is limited by an inadequate bone structure, unless aditional surgical procedures such as bone graft for bone augmentation are performed.

In the present clinical case with a severe upper jaw atrophy, a bone graft from the hip was done in order to obtain an adequate bone to receive the dental implants and place a fixed implant supported bridge. A follow up of the patient is of two years now.

Keywords : Dentistry; dental implants; implants supported fixed denture; hip bone graft.
