Prosthetic treatment using implants in fully edentulous patients includes implant-supported fixed prosthesis, implant hybrid prosthesis, implant retained- or supported-overdenture and implant supported fixed prosthesis has advantages such as psychological stability, pronunciation. If an implant supported fixed prosthesis is planned, the implants should be placed in consideration of pronunciation, esthetics, and oral hygiene. For this, clinical and radiological diagnosis is indispensable. When placing the prosthetic driven implant at the site determined from the diagnosis, a sufficient amount of alveolar bone and soft tissue support are required. If these requirements found to be insufficient, a wide range of bone grafting should be performed in advance. In this case, a fully edentulous patient with severe alveolar bone resorption due to periodontal disease was treated with a full mouth rehabilitation using implant-supported fixed prosthesis preceding maxillary sinus graft and alveolar bone augmentation. We report this patient were satisfied with esthetic and function.
