Many of problems which are faced to the edentulous patients are related to a minimal amount of available mandibular bone volume and height. Most of the patients with mild atrophy of mandible are treated using endosseous implant prosthodontics. TMI(Transmandibular Implant) can be used in case of severe mandibular atrophy of the mandible with exposed of inferior alveolar nerve, osteoporosis and the fracture of the atrophic mandible.Also it can eliminate the need for bone grafting and vestibuloplasty. The TMI is a rigid box frame structure which controls and distribute the masticatory force over the severely resorbed mandile. The box frame structure consist of a superstructure, baseplate, 4 transosseous posts, and 5cotical screws. This is a case report that also describes about the transmanibular implant reconstruction system.
