Treatment of mandibular fracture in senior citizens with severely resorbed edentulous mandibles is extremely difficult. Such treatment must achieve successful osteosynthesis and restore functional mastication. A severely resorbed (Class V) mandible was successfully reconstructed with an autogenous bone graft on the inferior border of the mandible and a titanium mesh plate after a failed attempt to fix the fracture. After the placement of endosseous implants in the mandible, the patient was rehabilitated with an overdenture to restore masticatory function.
