Özet

Posterior segmental collapse causes narrowing of interarch space and prevents adequate restoration in the posterior quadrant. Posterior maxillary segmental osteotomy (PMSO) is an alternative option that enables prosthodontic restoration with an implant-supported fixed partial denture. The following clinical report describes prosthodontic rehabilitation with fixed prostheses after a posterior maxillary segmental osteotomy for a patient with a partially edentulous mandible.
