Authors ­report a ­case of den­to-alveo­lar reha­bil­i­ta­tion by ­means of ver­ti­cal dis­trac­tion oste­o­gen­e­sis, in a 62-­year-­old ­male ­patient suf­fer­ing ­from ante­ri­or man­dib­u­lar ­defect ­due to a pre­vi­ous ­tumour resec­tion of ­the ­oral cav­ity. A ­new ver­ti­cal dis­trac­tion ­device ­was ­used. The ­bone ­was ele­vat­ed by ­about 11.0 mm. Implant inser­tion ­and ­soft tis­sue man­age­ment ­was suc­cess­ful­ly per­formed.
