The fibular free flap, with or without a cutaneous component, is the gold standard for reconstructing mandibular defects. Dental prosthetic rehabilitation is possible this way, even if the prosthesis-based implant is still a challenge because of the many anatomical and prosthetic problems. We think that complications can be overcome or reduced by adopting the new methods of computed tomography (CT)-assisted implant surgery (NobelGuide®, Nobel Biocare AB, Goteborg, Sweden). Here we describe the possibility of using CT-guided implant surgery with a flapless approach and immediate loading in mandibles reconstructed with fibular free flaps. © 2010 The British Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons.
