Farideh Geramipanah, Leyla Sadighpour, Amirreza Hendi


In completely edentulous patients, limited interarch distance can compromise conventional prosthetic fabrication. Bone reduction through various surgical procedures has been recommended to restore an acceptable interarch distance.

In the present report, an innovative method of fabrication of surgical guide has been described.
