Sandwich Osteotomy of the Atrophic Posterior Mandible Prior to Implant Placement: A Case Report

Open access

SUMMARY

The aim of this report was to present a patient with atrophic posterior mandible, rehabilitated with endosteal dental implants after a sandwich osteotomy of the mandible. Some aspects of the procedure are discussed as well as its outcome.
