Satisfactory dental rehabilitation of dentoalveolar trauma requires intense effort and time. Usually multidisciplinary treatment planning and teamwork are necessary to deal with multitask problems associated with these cases. Dental implants have been successfully used for replacement of missing teeth, but in trauma cases insufficient alveolar bone hinders implantation. In this report we present the multidisciplinary approach for the treatment of a trauma case. Maxillary segmental alveolar osteotomy in conjunction with interpositional and onlay bone grafting was performed to prepare the site for placement of osseointegrated implants. Titanium microplate and screws were used to provide orthodontic anchorage for intrusion of the extruded mandibular incisors. The patient was rehabilitated by implant supported fixed partial denture 6 months after implant placement.
