Severely resorbed alveolar ridge in aesthetic zone of maxilla and mandible can compromise the successful implant placement and aesthetic outcome. Advancements in the field of dental implant therapy have lead to predictable survival rates of dental implants. The current definition of success in addition to long-term predictability, function and integration of the implant focuses on esthetic considerations. This article presents a case report of severely deficient maxillary and mandibular alveolar ridge where implant placement in the Maxillary aesthetic zone has been done in a staged approach as there was inadequate supporting bone and soft tissue and a conventional fixed partial denture in mandibular anterior region.
