The present article describes a titanium mesh procedure used for bone augmentation in the treatment of severe maxillary atrophy. A mix of iliac cancellous bone and anorganic bovine bone in a 1:1 ratio is proposed for achieving the best bone quality at the time of implant placement, which is performed 5 to 6 months after the augmentation surgery. This procedure provides for 3-stage surgery using a titanium mesh (which is removed 4 to 5 months later) to retain the cancellous bone/Bio-Oss mixture. Bone specimens taken 5 to 6 months after the augmentation procedure showed bone regeneration and the presence of vessels, indicating bone vitality. (INT J ORAL MAXILLOFAC IMPLANTS 2001;16:427432)
