A 53-year-old woman underwent bilateral reconstruction of her severely atrophic posterior mandible using inlay inorganic bovine bone block grafting. Four months later, a bone specimen was taken for histologic evaluation and eight dental implants were placed. These implants were loaded with a provisional prosthesis after another 4 months. When the definitive prosthesis was inserted 8 months postsurgery, all implants were osseointegrated. Histologic analysis showed that the grafted bone was lined with newly formed bone. The results indicate that inorganic bovine bone blocks might serve as an alternative to autogenous grafting for posterior mandibular augmentation using the inlay technique.
