The authors present a case of prosthetic-implant intraforaminal mandibular reconstruction surgery to correct severe atrophy using the application of autologous bone transplants with submental endermic access. The prosthetic-implant method applied in this case study with the close collaboration between the surgeon and prosthodontist, represents, if scrupulously executed in selected cases only, a valid alternative to the implant protocols used on a daily basis in the intraforaminal mandibular sector.
