The aim of the present case report was to demonstrate the vertical gain in the posterior resorbed mandible utilizing the use of an Allograft Customized Bone Block. The case presents a 66-year-old healthy female nonsmoker who lost her right mandibular molars long time ago. In the past, she had an implant placement, which failed due to a fracture of the implant. Due to the high risk of mandibular nerve damage, the implant was left in the jaw and was completely covered with bone. Since the jaw was completely atrophic and short implants were not an option, a vertical ridge augmentation was required. This case report presents the use of an Allograft Customized Bone Block as a good option in patients with an atrophic mandible, showing no vertical bone resorption five months after placement and great osseointegration of the placed implants.
