Alveolar bone resorption has been a major challenge for implant placement in regions limited by anatomical structures. New alternatives have been introduced with the inclusion of extra-short implants in dentistry. The association of guided bone regeneration (GBR) with the use of extra-short implants might be a viable alternative for regions with limited bone height. This case report aimed to present the rehabilitation of a patient with severe mandibular bone resorption in the posterior region. The association of GBR with the use of extra-short implants was a viable alternative after a 3-year follow-up.
