The purpose of the present communication was to propose a comprehensive approach to rehabilitation of edentulous mandible with advanced alveolar ridge atrophy. We propose plastic surgery of the soft tissues in the vestibule by shifting them caudally, inserting implants in the frontal area, bridging them with a connecting beam and building a complete denture on it. The advantage of the soft tissue plastic surgery is that it allows dentists to make a normal lower jaw complete denture.

Key words: edentulous mandible, rehabilitation, dental implants.
