Abstract

In a one-stage approach, where the implant installation is performed simultaneously with the iliac bone graft, various complications are observed. The observed complications are as follows; severe bone resorption at the maxillary anterior region and the area adjacent to the nasal cavity, shortage of soft tissue to cover the augmented alveolar bone, difficulties with oral hygiene care caused by the diminished vestibular space and non-esthetic prosthesis. These are good reasons for choosing the two-stage approach over the one-stage approach in spite of all the advantages it has, and should be taken into careful consideration when diagnosing and planning treatment using the one-stage approach.
