ABSTRACT:Rehabilitation of an atrophied/resorbed edentulous jaws by placing implants is a challenging procedure. Although various bone augmentation procedure like ridge augmentation, sinus lift are in practice but it may lead to the morbidity of donor’s site. Sometimes patient is not willing for such extensive surgical procedures. In such cases Cortical/basal implants is a viable treatment option. Basal implants gives support from the basal bone area which usually remains free from the infection and less prone to resorption. In this case we have done full mouth rehabilitation with twenty cortical implants and immediate loading is done within 72 hours. A lot of patients remain untreated because of several reasons. Many patients refuse Conventional implant treatment due to multiple surgical steps and long waiting period. A large number of patient refuse bone augmentation procedures due to large costs involved and still the outcome of success is uncertain. Majority of the patients will refuse treatment due to either underlying medical conditions like Diabetes etc or due to habits like Smoking etc, which prevent Bone Augmentation Procedures. Cortical Implantology can address such problems and gives a satisfactory solution to the most compromised patient group.
