Distraction osteogenesis with the shortening and lengthening method is a well-established procedure for repairing extremities. We used this technique for reconstruction after mandibular segmental resection. A 74-year-old woman underwent distraction osteogenesis with an intraoral device, initially shortening the mandible after a 20-mm-long segmental resection, followed by lengthening at a rate of 0.8 mm per day for 21 days. Eight weeks after the distraction, the device was removed and a dental implant was placed at the site of distraction. Radiographic observation showed new bone formation, and the implant was completely osseointegrated. Although the follow-up period is relatively short, the clinical course was uneventful. Distraction osteogenesis with the shortening and lengthening method seems to be a feasible option for reconstruction after segmental resection of the mandible.
