The reconstruction of the severe atrophy of the maxilla using dental implants requires extensive surgical treatments. Sinus lift procedure, ridge augmentation with free bone grafts or free vascularized bone transfers represent the common techniques. With regard to a higher life expectancy the number of patients suffering from limited chewing function based on atrophic bone conditions will increase. In addition to a higher number of failed implants in elderly people ask for other treatment strategies to regain proper oral function with limited surgical effort. This case report presents the failed treatment of maxilla, using disc implants and shows the new maxillary reconstruction using Brånemark-Zygoma implants combined with standard Nobel Replace implants in order to avoid extensive augmentation procedure.
