Abstract

Authors modified the palatal osteotomy of hard palate compression correcting marked atorophic maxilla. This improved method ensured the union of a palatal bone.
The modified hard palate compression, tuberplasty, zygomaticoalveolar crest compression and vestibuloplasty were applied simultaneously for two cases of severe maxillary alveolar atrophy, that had successful results.
