Anteroposterior (AP) deficiencies present a restorative treatment challenge. Complex, multidisciplinary planning is necessary for the success of the treatment. This clinical report describes an approach to managing a complex complete oral rehabilitation of an edentulous patient with skeletal transverse and AP deficiencies with a history of facial trauma to the left zygomaticomaxillary complex. This was further complicated by a hopeless remaining dentition and pneumatization of the maxillary sinuses. Treatment included initial bony augmentation of the vertically and horizontally deficient maxilla, dental implant placement, provisional restoration in a Class III malocclusion with bilateral posterior crossbite, and Le Fort I osteotomy with transverse widening and advancement to correct the skeletal deficiency. Definitive restoration was accomplished with implant-supported fixed prostheses that provided ideal facial balance and occlusion.
