A 72-year-old man, edentulous in the maxilla for 20 years, presented himself at his dentist in 2006 with complaints concerning retention of his upper denture. The placement of implants was only possible if bone augmentation was undertaken; this was definitively rejected by the man.

One year later, the man was very satisfied with this solution.
